Kristen Doute is taking a big swing at her former friend and Vanderpump Rules co-star Schena Marie during a new interview with Life & Style.
In the interview, Kristen calls out Scheana for taking Stassi Schroeder’s anorexic comments out of context and making them into a bigger deal than necessary.
“Very frustrating,” Kristen says about filming the season 5 reunion.
Kristen adds that she takes major issue with Scheana now claiming she struggled with anorexia.
“It infuriates me that Scheana is making it a thing,” Kristen explained.
Following part one of the VPR reunion, Scheana revealed that she struggled with an eating disorder in college and claims that Stassi’s comments about her weight really affected her.
“I was 20 years old. I was going to be moving out to Hollywood. I wanted to be an actress. Thin was in 11 years ago,” Scheana previously told The Daily Dish podcast. “Kim Kardashian was not a thing. It wasn’t cool to have a big butt. For me, I was just like, ‘I don’t want to work out, so the only way I know how to get skinny is to stop eating.’I Remember stepping on the scale the day of my college graduation, and I was 102. I was like, ‘Yes, I’m almost under 100.’ I was proud of myself.”
While I don’t doubt Scheana’s struggle with anorexia, I have to agree with Kristen that it’s being made a thing because it’s convenient and makes Scheana look like the victim yet again. If Stassi’s comment hurt Scheana, she should have said something at the time and not wait almost a year to reveal that it hurt her because she struggled with anorexia in the past. Stassi was joking with Scheana and had no malicious intent in her comment unlike when Lala called Stassi and Katie fat. Calling someone too skinny is NOT the same as calling someone fat especially when we live in a society that glorifies thinness. As for Kristen, it seems she’s frustrated it’s being made into a big deal when it doesn’t have to be at all.
