Vanderpump Rules star Lala Kent has made a lot of headlines lately. Her feud with rapper 50 Cent heated back up, by her own doing, and it doesn’t seem to be ending anytime soon. We all know it ain’t over till Fofty says it’s over. Lala also made news for staying sober for over six months. Kudos to her for that.
Meanwhile, her former best friend, James Kennedy, has also been in the news for his recent success in staying sober. Scheana Marie even took a break from taking selfies to comment she noticed a positive change in James. So now that Lala and James are both on the right track, does this mean they can salvage their friendship as well?
Vanderpump Rules star Scheana Marie has been living her best life. She recently dumped dead weight Adam Spott after she learned he had a girlfriend. Better late than never! Scheana likes her men with a reality TV pedigree. Just ask her possible new flame DeMario Jackson, or past flings Robby Hayes and Carl Radke.
Scheana has been having fun and that’s all that matters. And it’s refreshing to watch compared to the rest of the Pump Rules crew who are all in “committed” relationships. Ahem, Jax Taylor. Speaking of committed, one of Scheana’s buddies, James Kennedy, is apparently now committed in his relationship and sobriety. And Scheana has all the details.
Former Real Housewives of Beverly Hills
HBIC star Lisa Vanderpump had a tough year. She endured “Operation Take Down LVP” aka #puppygate last season. On top of that, she suffered two losses. First her brother passed away, and then her mother passed shortly after that. All of that culminated in Lisa’s decision to leave the show.
But since then, Lisa has been on the up and up. She opened her new Vegas restaurant, Vanderpump Cocktail Garden. Please have a show in the works for that place! She also might open a spot in Miami. Of course, she still has Vanderpump Rules. And the VPR cast couldn’t be happier for Lisa since she left RHOBH. In particular, the number one guy in the group, Jax Taylor.
It’s a tale as old as time. Girl meets an older gentleman. Girl “lets him hit it on the first night.” And she wakes up to a new Range Rover the next morning. What a classic love story.
Lala Kent went from being Randall Emmett’s side piece to his fiancée. After infamously hiding their relationship and solely referring to him as “my man” on Vanderpump Rules, the two of them are now a very public couple
living off borrowed funds. She is even a stepmother-in-training, which has incited some drama recently. Even though her wedding will not be on the show, it does seem like there’s going to be some drama nonetheless. She doesn’t want the entire Vanderpump Rules cast in her wedding party. The nerve of her to actually include people she likes instead of turning her wedding into a three-part episode.
The crown is heavy dahlings – so let’s just leave it where it belongs. Lisa Vanderpump may no longer be a cast member on Real Housewives of Beverly Hills but she’ll always be queen of that show (sorry, Kyle Richards). Lisa walked away after 9 seasons on the show because of puppy-gate, crappy friends, and two real-life losses. Her brother passed away, as we saw on the show, and nine months later her mother, Jean Vanderpump, passed away at 84. She clearly has a lot going on and made the right decision to stay away from the manufactured drama. Besides, she’s better on Vanderpump Rules, where there’s no doubt about who’s boss.
The only good news about RHOBH after Lisa’s exit is that Bravo was forced to shake-up the cast. Sutton Stracke and Garcelle Beauvais have been announced as new housewives. It’s about time Bravo took concrete steps to diversify this show. Perhaps it took LVP’s exit to rethink the direction of the show. Either way, it took a lot for LVP to walk away, and friends of hers have apparently been telling her to leave for years. Now people in her life have been noticing a positive change in Lisa since her departure.
How about some positive news? It might not be world peace, but it’s a start. It seems like drama is unfolding for the upcoming season of Vanderpump Rules. This time around James Kennedy might be taking a break from the fighting. Hopefully, the fighting will also take a break from him. James is still going strong with his long term lady friend, Raquel Leviss. She is now employed at SUR and hopefully avoiding
Katie Maloney internal conflict. The couple still live together and James recently celebrated his newfound sobriety!
As you might have guessed, James is still vibing with his music. Currently, no one seems to be stalking James or insulting Raquel. But maybe Kristen Doute has been busy lately. I’m kidding! We also know amends were made with his nemesis, Jax Taylor, though James and Raquel were absent from Jax’s recent nuptials. Earlier this summer James shared that even he and Lala Kent were back on speaking terms. Did Hell freeze over when I wasn’t looking or has James finally turned a corner? It’s starting to look like our White Kanye might not get the bad edit this year!
Most of the Vanderpump Rules cast members have been accused of partying too much throughout the show’s seven seasons. But, no one has been in the hotseat more than the self-proclaimed White Kanye, aka James Kennedy.
He’s “stopped drinking” a few times, but as of this moment, the British DJ is two months sober. But, wait. Didn’t filming for Season 8 just wrap up? Doesn’t this mean that he was only sober for the tail end the season? Or did he make this decision after filming concluded? While, the timing is a little bit murky, James seems to have a clear outlook on the situation.
Labor Day means a long weekend, which usually translates to some fun times with family and friends. Some of the Vanderpump Rules cast members headed down to Cabo to celebrate Lala Kent’s twenty-ninth birthday. Lala posted a photo in her birthday suit. Stassi Schroeder posed with a sombrero on. Katie Maloney showed off her assets for the camera as well.
Meanwhile, Jax Taylor and Brittany Cartwright went out of the way to make sure that their social media followers knew that they missed their flights to Cabo just in case anyone wondered if they weren’t invited. And I can’t blame them given Jax’s other cast feuds.
