Kristen Doute and Ariana Madix have been at completely different ends of the spectrum in their relationship over the years as they began as enemies and then found a friendship. In a September 11 interview with The Messenger, Doute opened up about where the two women stand now in the wake of Madix’ split from Tom Sandoval after his affair with Raquel Leviss.

She explained that Madix didn’t owe her an apology for their feud in the early seasons of “Vanderpump Rules,” which began after Sandoval and Madix began dating after his breakup with Doute. Doute spent several seasons coming after Madix and Sandoval as she accused him of cheating on her with Madix, who denied that there was any overlap.

“Ariana owes me nothing,” Doute told the publication. “We both went through the exact same thing. If anything, it’s just so unfortunate that she had to go through it later in life because it’s not really fair to her. Tom, [when] do you just become a better version of yourself and stop repeating your mistakes?”

Doute said she also had a great conversation on camera with Madix about getting past their previous issues and finding a friendship during her time on “Vanderpump Rules” but it was never included in a final edit. “I think that frustrated both Ariana and I was like, ‘Well, we had this amazing evolution of what the hell happened, and why didn’t they air it?'” she shared. “We’re not really sure. But as people can see, that’s one of my closest buddies.”

He’s so sweet. He makes her happy. He makes her laugh. He makes her smile, and that is all I care about.”
