While many have turned their backs on Kristen Doute and Stassi Schroeder after their firings from Vanderpump Rules, their significant others don’t seem to be going anywhere!
On Tuesday, Doute’s BF Alex Menache affirmed in a thoughtful Instagram post that he is standing by her side despite the controversy she’s been caught up in this month.

On Tuesday, Menache wrote along with a silly pic of the couple:
“This woman has been put thru the ringer [sic] these last few weeks and has taken it like a champ. Anyone that knows you knows your heart is pure and kind.”
“She has dealt with it with grace and strength, and is putting in the work behind the scenes. I honor you @kristendoute and will always be your #1 big idiot fan!”
Hmmm… we wonder what “work behind the scenes” he’s referring to? A career comeback for her and Stassi?! Or educating herself on being a better ally?!
As you’re likely aware, neither of the former Bravolebrities have spoken out regarding their firings from the series, though they have each returned to social media.
On Wednesday, Doute also showed appreciation for her man after his post about her, by sharing her own post on IG in his honor:

Doute did issue an apology to Faith Stowers, and admitted to taking some time to “process what I’ve been seeing, feeling and learning,” before adding that she realizes her actions were wrong against her former co-star:
“Although, my actions were not racially driven, I am now completely aware of how my privilege blinded me from the reality of law enforcement’s treatment of the black community, and how dangerous my actions would have been to her. It never was my intention to add to the injustice and imbalance.”
“I’m ashamed, embarrassed, and incredibly sorry. I will do better. I have to do better.”
Just a few days ago, Kristen was called out by a fan after she voiced support for changing medical marijuana laws in Idaho where her brother lives. In response to their message, she wrote:
“My younger brother lives in Idaho. Soldier. Crohns. Prefers not to be medicated with opiates. Speak before you think and when you do, please speak with kindness. You don’t always know people as you think you do and don’t know what other people are going through.”
Thoughts on what Alex had to say about Kristen, y’all?? We’re definitely intrigued to see how she and Stassi will move on from here… Let us know what you think their next move is (below) in the comments!!
