James Kennedy was very much on the outs with the Vanderpump Rules cast during last night’s episode. Peter Madrigal disinvited James from his birthday party in honor of his groomsman spot in Jax Taylor’s wedding. This groomzilla schtick is getting pretty old. And let’s be honest: it is a chore to be in someone’s wedding party. Weirdly, Peter did invite James’ girlfriend Raquel Leviss to the party, but she stayed loyal to her boo and skipped the event, even though James cursed her out on the phone during the previous episode when she missed part of his DJ set at Tom Tom during Pride.
At this point in the season, Lisa Vanderpump is very wary of bringing James back to SUR for his signature See You Next Tuesday DJ event. We all saw him secretly drinking at Pride even though he claimed to be sober that day. Clearly, the guy had a long way to go before getting back in LVP’s good graces professionally. Well, Vanderpump Rules Season 8 was actually filmed in Summer 2019 and it seems like a lot has changed since then. At least for James anyway. The self-proclaimed White Kanye is back at SUR!
James shared a screenshot of a text message conversation with one of the SUR owners, Guillermo Zapata, asking him to return to SUR to DJ on Tuesday nights. James captioned the screenshot with “THE BOSS HAS SPOKEN “SEE YOU NEXT TUESDAY” IS BACK! AND WERE KICKING IT OFF TOMORROW NIGHT 18th at SUR 9pm.”
I’m sure Lisa and Guillermo will be happy to get that Tuesday night crowd again, but they’re not the only ones pumped about James‘ return. Get ready for this one: James’ longtime enemy Katie Maloney shared a nice comment on his Instagram post. In a screenshot shared by the Instagram account Comments by Bravo, Katie wrote, “All is right again in SUR land. I’m happy for you dude.”

And James reciprocated with a nice comment of his own. James wrote, “Thank you so much [Katie] means so much honestly!” Has hell frozen over? Katie thinks supporting Kristen Doute is “poison,” but she’s excited that things are going well for James. Wow. Who could have predicted that one?
Lala Kent’s man Randall Emmett commented on James‘ post with “Yes!!!” Clearly, he’s over James reading his bad movie reviews during confessional interviews and referring to Randall as a “fat man who pays [Lala’s] rent” before they went public with their relationship.
New Vanderpump Rules cast member Danica Dow also commented, “WTF I NEED MY TUESDAY SHIFT BACK ASAP.” And I need to book a flight to California.
TELL US- ARE YOU SURPRISED THAT JAMES IS BACK AT SUR AGAIN? HAS HE CHANGED FOR THE BETTER? ARE YOU SURPRISED THAT KATIE WAS SO SUPPORTIVE AFTER SO MANY YEARS OF FEUDING WITH JAMES?
