The cast of OG “Vanderpump Rules” got back together – sort of.
Several past and present stars from the Bravo reality show attended the 2nd Annual Ratner Christmas Gala in December 2022. The party took place in Newport Coast, California and was hosted by entrepreneurial couple William and Elaine Ratner.

Kristen Doute attended the Christmas Gala with 3 other Vanderpump Rules ladies
Kristen Doute hasn’t been on Vanderpump Rules since 2020, when she was fired from the show along with OG Stassi Schroeder and newcomers Max Boyens and Brett Caprioni. But the ex-bar star still maintains genuine friendships with many of her former co-stars.
In December 2022, Doute posted an Instagram photo when she posed alongside Scheana Shay, Lala Kent, Brittany Cartwright and host Elaine Ratner at the Ratner Christmas Gala. All of the Vanderpump Rules women wore glamorous gowns as they posed for the holiday snap.
“Permanently on the naughty list,” Doute captioned the post, which showed her in a high-slit red dress.
Notably missing from the gala picture was Schroeder and Vanderpump Rules veteran Katie Maloney.
In the comments, some fans asked Doute if she still talks to Schroeder.
“Wish we could have the OGs back on #vanderpumprules + Stassi or a new show with all of you. Speaking of which, are you all still friends with her?” one fan asked.
“One of you talks to Stassi” another asked. “Why can’t they take you back to VPR?” another wrote to Doute.
Doute didn’t respond to comments about her Vanderpump Rules past or her friendship with Schroeder.
There is a rift between some of the Vanderpump Rules cast members
While Doute and Schroeder are no longer on camera, their off-camera friendship has also been rocky.
In August 2022, Doute responded to a fan her Instagram story who asked her who she was closest to from her eight seasons of Vanderpump Rules, and she named current cast members Shay and Kent as two of her best friends.
She also said she is “very close” to Cartwright and her husband Jax Taylor, who left the show in December 2020. “Brittany is my best friend,” Doute said at the time, adding that she sees the former “Vanderpump Rules” couple several times a week.
But she didn’t say the same for Schröder. Amid their on-and-off relationship, Doute said, “I haven’t spoken to Stass in a minute but I love her very much and she will always be a sister to me.”
In May, both Doute and Cartwright skipped Schroeder’s wedding ceremony in Rome, while Shay claimed she was dropped due to budget concerns.
Given their past drama, it’s no big surprise that not all of the ‘Vanderpump Rules’ women were together for the Christmas gala. October 2022 Shay said Us Weekly that there is always some kind of drama between the big casts. “I mean, there’s always a division on this show, you know, it’s never been all just a happy bunch,” she said.
