Kristen Doute seems to be staying positive despite undergoing reconstructive facial surgery.
The 32-year-old reality star had to miss the Vanderpump Rules premiere due to her hospital visit. On Wednesday, she shared an Instagram snap to show fans what she looked like after her surgery.
“Just because you don't remember it doesn't mean it didn't happen!" she wrote. "How I spent my #pumprules premiere."
Doute’s comment section lit up with negative fan reactions, causing her to later clarify her statement.
"For those of you who like to jump to negative conclusions, I'll clear up my sarcasm,'" she explained in an “edit” to the original Instagram caption. "I had reconstructive surgery due to multiple orbital socket fractures that happened a few weeks ago. Coincidence was crazy and my surgery was the premiere day."
Despite not being able to ring in the new season with her Vanderpump family, Doute’s boyfriend, Brian Carter, and co-star, Stassi Schroeder, made sure she was as comfortable as possible during her hospital stay, bringing pillows and dinner from home.
Doute needed reconstructive surgery to repair an injury caused after she fell out of an Uber, according to E!.
While Doute had to watch the latest episode of Vanderpump Rules from the hospital, she was able to attend the show’s season four premiere party in West Hollywood on Oct. 28.
Rolling with the punches, Doute decided to incorporate the black eye from her injury into an awesome Rocky Balboa costume for Halloween.
"The black eye is real, the rest are just accessories," she captioned an Instagram photo posted on Oct. 31.
