On this episode of Straight Up With Stassi, Kristen Doute joins Stassi to talk about honeymoon phases, girls nights, and Vegiholic.com.
“It’s the honeymoon phase.”
“You’ve been MIA since you’ve had a boyfriend,” Kristen says, half joking.
“I feel like we do group activities all the time!” Stassi argues. “And I’ve never said no to something that you guys have invited me to.”
“No, you just don’t look at your texts, so I appreciate that you have read receipts on,” Kristen says.
“If ya’ll invite me to something, I never say no,” Stassi says.
“Typically, I text your boyfriend instead of you,” Kristen points out.
“That’s true,” Stassi concedes.
“Because you don’t read my texts,” Kristen says.
“But I never say no!” Stassi laughs.
“It’s the honeymoon phase,” Kristen says. “There’s only one of them. Hopefully it’s forever, like Carter’s parents. Hopefully you and Beau just stay in that phase forever and ever and ever.”
“I sensed this,” Stassi admits. “I joked about it with him. I was like, ‘I think my friends are going to get mad at me. I think it’s coming. I feel like there’s going to be an intervention or a talk.’ I was like, ‘But let me think about it. I’ve never turned them down for anything, no one’s asked me to do anything, so I’m technically not doing anything wrong.'”
“We started to see you through your Instagram. Well, Beau’s Instagram stories,” Kristen says.
“You are a dick!” Stassi laughs. “I see you guys a lot! We have group activities all the time!”
“Group activities, not girl activities!” Kristen whines, jokingly.
“I love girl activities. I tried to have one tonight,” Stassi says.
“Katie (Maloney Schwartz) tried to have one today at The Container Store and then Carter invited himself,” Kristen says. “Katie was like, ‘Well you can just go with Carter if you want.'”
“See! So you never went through that phase?” Stassi asks.
Kristen sighs. “We’re happy for you.”
“That sounds so snarky,” Stassi laughs.
“It did sound snarky,” Kristen admits. “I’m just speaking loudly into my microphone!”
“I just want you to recognize that this is what you and Katie and Carter created,” Stassi says. “So you can’t be mad at it.”
“No, I’m not, I’m so happy. I’m happy because I love him — Beau. Overalls. I like that you have a relationship that you’re fucking finally happy in,” Kristen says. “So we don’t want to take away from that. Everyone has their honeymoon phase, when it’s butterflies and…”
“Kristen, don’t you remember when we were at Disneyland? Me, you, Katie and I think it was Scheana at the time, and you were talking about how you and Carter had sex seven times a day. You were like, ‘It’s always going to be like that. It’s never not going to be like that.’ Me and Katie looked at each other and were like, ‘Oh ho ho… this chick is in deep. She has no idea what’s coming for her.’ Sex seven times a day? That’s hysterical. So, you did go through that phase, just in a different way.”
“Yeah. Okay, fine,” Kristen concedes.
“Let me just be in a phase where I’m happy when I’m with my boyfriend,” Stassi says.
“We will ride the wave with you. And when you wanna have girls night, if we’re not busy, we’ll do girls night,” Kristen says.
“How often do you guys talk behind my back? Badly?” Stassi asks.
“We don’t talk badly, we just make fun of you. But in a really endearing, cute way,” Kristen laughs. “Katie is actually fucking married, and I’m with a male-child and two dogs in a home. It’s different. I love what you and Overalls have. I love that when he gets drunk, he cries and expresses his love for you. It makes me happy.”
“To you, you mean?” Stassi asks. “I was like, ‘Well, that’s not the only time he expresses his love…'”
“Do you remember when I asked you, ‘Have you guys said the L word yet?’ And you said, ‘Yeah, I forgot to tell you, it happened a couple of days ago.’ And I was like, ‘Okay, good, because he looked at me yesterday and he was like, ‘I’ve never been so in loooove…’ And I was like, ‘Fuck, are you telling me this before you’re telling her?’ I was like, ‘Don’t put me in this position!'”
“That would have been really weird for you,” Stassi agrees. “Well, fine. Can you just, like, teach me how to be normal then?”
“No, you’re going to figure it out on your own,” Kristen says, “Just like how you’re going to figure out your flat ass on your own.”
