Vanderpump Rules is unique amongst reality shows, in that its producers crank out a truly remarkable number of episodes per season.

In an age when most series, scripted or otherwise, are paring down, Vanderpump just keeps getting bigger, churning out a staggering 24 episodes in each of its last two seasons.

With that sort of exposure, it’s tough to imagine the cast is ever wanting for attention, and yet, it seems even when she’s in a pool, Kristen Doute remains parched:

What you’re looking at is a “topless photo of Kristen Doute.”

It’s not easy to pull off a topless pic that doesn’t violate Instagram’s no-nipple policy, but Kristen pulls it off by baring nothing more than a little shoulder.

The important thing is that it’s enough to accomplish the desired effect, which is to get the Internet talking about a Kristen Doute topless pic.

Hey, you don’t survive and thrive in the increasingly crowded reality TV market for five seasons without knowing how to manipulate social media.

The Vanderpump cast is currently shooting its sixth season, and K-Dot has to what she can to stand out amidst a number of promising storylines.

Just in the past three weeks, the following rumors have emerged out of West Hollywood:

Sources say Scheana Marie is engaged to Robert Parks-Valletta after just a few months of dating.

Other insiders close to the cast say that Tom Schwartz and Katie Maloney are headed for divorce.

(The couple denies it, but that could just be part of an effort to preserve the drama.)

There are conflicting reports about new additions to the cast, but we know that Stassi Schroeder is back together with Patrick Meagher, who will appear on camera for the first time this season.

He may or may not be joined by a pair of new SURvers, including James Kennedy’s unfortunate girlfriend.

And all of this will take place on camera directly on the heels of the premiere season of Jax Taylor and Brittany Cartwright’s spinoff series.

So you can’t really blame Kristen for grabbing her share of the Internet’s attention with a bit of false advertising.

If there’s one thing that’s guaranteed to be good for some clicks, it’s the promise of nudity.

Watch Vanderpump Rules online to get caught up in time for what’s sure to be another lengthy, drama-packed season.
