On Christmas Day singer George Michael passed away suddenly and the world has been reeling over yet another shocking 2016 loss. Vanderpump Rules‘ star James Kennedy is taking this loss hard, since George Michael was his godfather.
James took to Instagram last night to mourn the loss. He shared this throwback photo of George giving him a giant stuffed Barney when he was a child. He captioned the picture with, “Rest In Peace George I’m heartbroken we never got to speak again after so many years, I can’t believe this has happened, please watch over me in heaven Godfather. Enjoy paradise I love you.”

Lisa explains her decision to return was in part due to the fact that Dorit was there to ease things and provide some much needed laughs. “After last season it was extraordinarily difficult to come back into this group, but it was made much easier by the addition of Dorit…Dorit is most definitely a friend who I can have a giggle with, talking about Harrison being a mop, laughing about the rubber, pepper spray comments, harmless self-deprecating remarks without any boundaries, just enjoyable moments that friends can indulge in. In a world that is so troubled, in times where chaos is so prevalent everywhere we look, it is an essential part of my life to have humorous banter and be secure by the fact that each time you turn away, there is not a blade inserted between your shoulders.”
Erika shares that she’s not a big fan of LVP‘s humor. “Lisa Vanderpump is talking about British humor again at the pre-White Party get-together. She often defends her snarky remarks as being “British humor,” but she also describes this humor as being “way more aggressive.” So, are you trying to be funny or aggressive? I love a good joke just as much as the next person, but this “humor” often feels like thinly veiled insults.”
Eileen starts off addressing the many painful losses her family suffered in a very short amount of time. “Going up to my mother’s house for the last time felt like a final goodbye to her. Even though I hold my mother in my heart, letting go of her things and her home felt like another way I was losing her.”
