Kristen Doute, Brian Carter


Well, that was quick!

It's only been two days since E! News was first to report that Vanderpump Rules star Kristen Doute had split from her co-star James Kennedy, but the brunette beauty has already moved on with someone new.

A source confirms to us that Doute is currently dating a (very attractive) man named Brian Carter who she met through the dating app Bumble.

"He was the first guy she contacted on Bumble," the insider notes.

The couple already looks wildly happy, spending Wednesday together at the San Diego Zoo Safari Park with some friends. Among the group were fellow Vanderpump Rules stars Scheana Marie and her husband Mike Shay

Doute took to Instagram to share several photos from the fun outing. One cute pic shows the new couple standing beside a giraffe about which the reality star writes, "Confirmed: I am a giraffe whisperer. thank you @sdzsafaripark for the best day of my life."

She also tweeted about her fun day, writing, "Fleetwood mac in our limo after a day feeding giraffes. Please say this is how it will also end."

So, the James.Mae designer seems to be going along just fine.

A show source told E! News on Wednesday, "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."  

It certainly seems at this point that she's over it, though, and we can't really blame her. The duo had quite the roller coaster of a relationship.

For starters, Kennedy was constantly questioning whether or not Doute had gotten over her relationship with ex-boyfriend Tom Sandoval. Then, things really hit a boiling point when the couple was caught in the middle of a screaming match during Scheana Marie's wedding. At one point, Kennedy called Doute "f—king unmanageable."

Though they eventually kissed and made up, it's clear things were just not going to work.

Hopefully Doute's new relationship proves to be a bit less rocky!

Us Weekly was the first to report the dating news.
