There's no question this must be excruciatingly difficult on the entire family.

We can't say that we really didn't see this one coming.
Vanderpump Rules star Kristen Doute spent the entire past season of the reality show obsessing over her ex-boyfriend Tom Sandoval, even though she had already moved on to a new man — James Kennedy.
James didn't love how hung up Kristen was on her former flame, but turned a blind eye for most of the episodes.
However, the two got in a pretty ugly fight at Scheana Marie Shay and Michael Shay's wedding. We sort of thought it was curtains for the couple then, but they seemed to be very much together during Andy Cohen's reunion show.
However, a source describes the end of their relationship, saying:
"Kristen and James were together at the start of the season, but they broke up during filming. They're not currently together…although with them you never know."
We have learned that this split happened back around July.
Sources close to the show revealed EXCLUSIVELY to us that Kristen's been getting friendly with another Bravolebrity — Aleks Taldykin, who appeared on season one of Below Deck!
Our insiders add that Kristen and Aleks have been talking for a year and a half, and are now supposedly spending more time together.
The two even went to a Vanderpump Rules event together in late July, and he's pretty good friends with fellow VP cast member Jax Taylor!
Whatever her romantic status is, we just hope Kristen is FINALLY moving past Tom! Do you think she can? SOUND OFF in the comments!
