Now that Kristen Doute is madly in love with her boyfriend Brian Carter, is she hearing wedding bells? Well, you may see the Vanderpump Rules pal wearing an engagement ring these days, but that doesn't mean we'll see her walk down the aisle anytime soon.
As you may have heard Stassi Schroeder call her out for earlier this season, Kristen occasionally wears a fake engagement ring. She wasn't wearing the rock when she explained to The Daily Dish that she does so in order to "test the waters" and find the perfect stone for when she gets her real engagement ring, but you can see her flaunt it in the below interview with E! News from May. "I just want to take it for a test drive. I get a lot of crap for it. And even [Carter]'s just like, 'Why don’t we go when you’re ready and when we’re ready to do that and just go shopping for one?' And I’m just like, 'Yeah, but you can only try it on once,'" she said. "You need to wear it around. The one that I have now falls to the side, and now I know that I don’t like that kind of a setting. You really need to wear it with different outfits."
However, Carter said he doesn't exactly love it when he sees Kristen rocking that bling. "I don’t like when she wears it, personally. I think it’s pretty weird, her fake engagement ring. Are we in a fake relationship?" he joked to The Daily Dish.
So will Carter replace it with a real engagement ring anytime soon? "I don't know. If you play your cards right and keep making that really good food," Carter said cheekily.
We wonder if Kristen picked up some inspiration for her own future nuptials when she served as a bridesmaid for Katie Maloney-Schwartz and Tom Schwartz's wedding in August. Watch Kristen dish all about the experience, below.
