The Valley’s Kristen Doute and Luke Broderick’s Relationship Timeline

By Michael Mar 21, 2024

Kristen Doute’s romance with Luke Broderick started as a summertime hookup, but quickly became something more.

The Vanderpump Rules alum met Broderick in June 2022 while serving as a bridesmaid and groomsman in their mutual friend’s nuptials.

“Right after we met at the wedding, or, like, hung out at the wedding, we had sex,” Doute revealed during a December 2022 episode of the couple’s “Love, Sex and What Else Matters” podcast.

Doute confessed she was hesitant to jump into a relationship with Broderick after her split from Alex Menache in June 2022.

“I battled with being, like, your person. I love you so much, but just the thought of being someone’s girlfriend again threw me through a loop because I want to be a wife and I want to be a mother,” she explained.

The pair ultimately pushed through their respective reservations and went public in December 2022. They took their romance to the next level in March 2024 by costarring on The Valley.

Doute and Broderick teamed up with Jax Taylor, Brittany Cartwright and more for season 1 of The Valley. Ahead of the premiere, Doute exclusively told Us Weekly that her boyfriend helped mellow her out on camera.
“I don’t need to say everything in the moment,” she told Us. “Luke teaches me to hold those thoughts and debate if I should say them out loud. And maybe don’t get into everyone’s relationships and marriages because I don’t know them.”
Doute gushed about her partner, sharing, “I’ve loved connecting with someone from the Midwest who has the best head on his shoulders and is not afraid to communicate how he’s feeling, but also very gentle and celebrates my weird quirkiness.”
