'Vanderpump Rules' Season 3 Star Kristen Doute's Black Eye Finally Explained

Last Friday, a story popped up that Lisa Vanderpump cut Kristen Doute from her staff. Because I live, sleep, eat, and breathe all things Vanderpump Rules, I haven’t stopped searching for more details regarding whether or not Kristen will continue to SURve at Lisa's Sexy Unique Restaurant. (Have I toyed with the idea of calling the restaurant and asking? MAYBE. Am I too nervous to go through with it? DEFINITELY.) Neither Lisa nor Kristen have released an official statement (and by that I mean they haven’t tweeted) about the matter. There's a part of me that thinks their silence means the story is true, but there's also a chance they’re ignoring it because it’s total poop. Or maaaaybe it's going to be a part of the show and they want to keep it a secret. I JUST DON’T KNOW, OKAY? What I do know: Recently, Kristen drunkenly fell on her face and wound up with a black eye, but this did not happen at the SUR wrap party.

Let's take it back a bit, shall we? Monday, Kristen shared a picture from the Vanderpump Rules Season 3 finale party. Tuesday, she tweeted about a black eye she got when she was schnockered. Could those tweets + the picture from the VR party = Kristen got a black eye while celebrating with the cast at SUR? That's what some suspected.

Kristen says nice try team, but that is not what happened. Wednesday, she snuffed out any speculation that she’d hurt her eye after getting too lit with the other SURvers:

Roger that, Kristen.
