Get out the popcorn because this is about to get juicy!
Kristen Doute is dropping a book focused on her crazy dating life titled ‘He’s Making You Crazy’ which was released yesterday, June 2nd. Kristen co-wrote the book with How to Lose a Guy in 10 Days author Michele Alexander and after hearing some excerpts, it definitely has that girlfriend/gossip vibe that we got from the hit movie.
In the book, Kristen dedicated an entire chapter to her rendezvous with Jax Taylor which was documented on the show as she was still dating Tom Sandoval. The chapter, titled ‘I Lied’ details the infamous hookup between Kristen and Jax, although though it refrains from using Jax’s name. Speaking out to UsWeekly, Kristen states:
“I think the ‘I Lied’ chapter was probably the hardest one for me to write. … Everyone will know that that is about Jax. I don’t say the names, but I just want everyone to know that did not happen with another person. I think it’s pretty apparent, so I’m not really giving anything away. But with that one it was difficult because I felt so much guilt about my mistake that I didn’t feel that I really deserved any sort of platform to speak my mind about it or say my piece. But at the end of the day, this is my book and this is my voice and with my self-love, I had to say, ‘You know what, I’m not blaming him for this, I’m actually taking the heat for it.’ … It’s not to take the blame off of myself, but it’s just to explain where my brain was at in that moment.”
Kristen noted that both Brittany Cartwright and Ariana Madix got a heads up, as the chapter obviously affected their current partners. Kristen noted that all parties, including Tom Sandoval were supportive, emphasizing ‘”Do you girl.’”
Kristen spilled on the problems on her relationship with Sandoval stating:
“We would get ready together at his vanity, and when he said ‘you’re beautiful’ I wondered if he was talking to me or to himself. His flat iron, oh, his f—king flat iron. It was his most prized possession. Would he ever look at me the way he looked at it?”
On her tryst with Sandoval’s best friend Jax, Kristen spilled:
“To be honest, I don’t remember much. I know it happened. I know he wasn’t my boyfriend. I know we were both drunk, but also that we made a mutual, consensual decision. I’m still not sure how it could have happened, but it did. I slept with my boyfriend’s best friend, who not too long before this used to date my former best friend.”
“Looking back, I just wanted attention and affection, and it didn’t matter anymore from whom, or from where. I’d barely hugged my boyfriend, let alone had sex with him, in months. I was longing to feel desired, to know that I was still worth something. My self-love tank was entirely depleted, and I hated every minute of it.”
Kristen also added that while Jax was deemed a dog, it was Kristen who took the most heat adding: “Years later this is still held against me, my Scarlet Letter, while the world has allowed him to let it go.”
If you’re a Vanderpump Rules fan it sounds like the perfect beach read. You can get your copy of ‘He’s Making You Crazy’ as the book is out now.
