Kristen‘s ex-boyfriend, James Kennedy, was the main focus of Vanderpump Rules again this week. For reasons I will never understand, girls are sleeping with him and then fighting over him. Ariana Madix nailed my reaction perfectly, when she deadpanned, “People want to have sex with James?” Right?!
Lisa Vanderpump has been doing video blogging for the new season of Vanderpump Rules, which is a bit like a slimmed down version of Peoples Couch. This week Lisa watched and gave her reactions to scenes from the newest episode, including her take on Scheana and Shay’s addiction storyline, as well as Peter chopping off his ponytail.
On James Kennedy’s behavior this week, “I’m seeing James and his arrogance is superseding his talent. Maybe he needs to pull a few busboy shifts right now. What is this? I mean, really? James is so caught up in his arrogance, I almost don’t know this person in front of me right now that I’m watching.”
Scheana, who said she’d much rather go out and watch her friends be messy than stay home and support her struggling husband, admitted the night didn’t turn out as she hoped expected, “I thought it was a great idea to have Kristen come and call James out when he least expected it. The night definitely ended differently than I ever would’ve expected. I was thinking it would be a Stassi and Kristen 2.0 situation and it was the complete opposite.”
Kim Richards is speaking to Kyle Richards again, but that doesn’t mean it’s smooth sailing. Kyle shares that their relationship will “never be easy.” Also not easy – being on film constantly! Lisa Vanderpump admits it’s a challenge to juggle it all, but she is well-aware she should get while the going is good!
Last night on Vanderpump Rules everyone conspired together to sabotage James Kennedy‘s budding relationship with Lala Kent. Poor Lala – she was the unintended mature person caught in a cesspool of stupidity.
Things start with Kristen Doute and James officially splitting. He cheated, she possibly cheated because her phone went suddenly silent. James is haunted by Kristen’s past as a two-timing psycho-confidence killer and never feels he can trust her. Imagine that…
Kristen went home to visit family in Detroit (is that Krazy Kapital of America!?), and James thinks she hooked up with other guys. Sounds like he’s projecting to cover for the fact that he made out with Lala while Kristen was away! While Big Mama K is away the little beanstalks will play!
Tonight Kristen Doute and Lala Kent will compare notes onJames Kennedy and discover that James cheated with Lala before he Kristen were officially “over.” In the preview clip, Lala shares that she and James hooked up when Kristen flew to Detroit for a job. Which is interesting since he grills Kristen, accusing HER of hooking up with another guy since her phone was dead for a period of time during the work trip. These two truly should just stay together! #twopeas
Ariana says hearing about Shay’sissues made her feel “helpless.” She shares, “I know from personal experience that it can be hard to open up to those you’re close to about serious struggles because you always want to be positive and you don’t want anyone to worry. However, it felt horrible to know that they were taking on such huge issues on their own. I also worried that because I don’t have much knowledge about addiction combined with depression that I would give advice with the best intentions, only to be doing more harm than good. I wanted to urge them to see a professional immediately.”
No one ever accused James Kennedy of having a filter! This is, after all, the author of the infamous “boning” line on this season’s Vanderpump Rules. But now he’s not holding back on his feelings about older version of himJax Taylor, nor his feelings of utter dread when it came to couples’ therapy with (ex) girlfriend Kristen Doute!
James says, “I find myself stuck between a rock and a hard place with Jax, constantly being the man looking for ways to sabotage my plans.” Although he finds Tom Sandoval a bit more palatable, as his past relationship with Kristen was “real,” Jax is harder to take. “I don’t have an issue with Jax unless he is being unrealistic…(which is most of the time),” James complains, “Sorry but it’s true, I feel like his jealousy overlaps with what he actually cares about. I don’t think he hates me, I just think he is intimidated.”
