A lot of growth can happen in a month, which seems to be what happened to Kristen Doute.

The 37-year old seemed to take a step back from the public when she was fired from Bravo's "Vanderpump Rules," but now she's ready to open up about the situation that caused her to lose her job as well as what she's learned through it all.

"I think the biggest thing that I’ve learned is that I have so much to learn," Kristen shared in the upcoming July episode of the "Hollywood Raw" podcast, due out Wednesday, according to Us Weekly.

"I know that’s super cliché and a lot of people say that, but it’s absolutely true. Because I think that I thought that I understood racism, but now I’m really learning about unconscious bias," she continued. "Learning about anti-racism. Learning about how we can do things locally to really truly make changes and putting work into your community locally to make those changes I think [are] so important."

Kristen, along with "Vanderpump Rules" OG Stassi Schroeder, came under fire after their former co-star Faith Stowers -- one of the only Black cast members to appear on the reality series -- revealed how she was treated by the two stars. Proof of the treatment could be seen in an old tweet Kristen sent insinuating that a wanted thief and Stowers were the same person. As a result, Stassi was also fired, along with Season 8 newcomers Max Boyens and Brett Caprioni, who had several racists tweets resurface early this year.

Although the incident involving the "He's Making You Crazy" author happened in 2018, she's since realized how problematic her actions were.

"It was definitely none of my business to take anything to social media [and] essentially send a mob out to this person. Especially because she’s Black," she said. "It was really just not my place to go there."

"At the end of the day I’m not a [expletive] saint," she admitted. "I’m doing the best that I can. I’m human and I make mistakes all the time and I’m just trying to do something every day that makes this a little bit better for everyone."

Since the whole "Vandeprump Rules" firing fiasco, Kristen and Stassi have hired the same crisis manager to help get them through this difficult time. In a statement released by their new representative Steve Honig, the duo appears willing to do the work necessary to repair their images.

"Both of them recognize actions speak louder than words and that is what will guide them as they move forward," the statement read.

When it comes to a potential "Vanderpump Rules" Season 9 and how Kristen and the others' absence will affect it -- that remains to be seen. Former cast members of the show have weighed in on the situation though.

Billie Lee, who appeared on the show for Seasons 6 and 7 thinks the show could now spend more time focused on other cast members like Tom Sandoval, Ariana Madix, James Kennedy, Scheana Shay, and Raquel Leviss. Meanwhile, Peter Madrigal, wouldn't mind taking on a bigger role with the series to help fill the gap.

"Yeah, I definitely want to return," he said. "Yes, absolutely."
