James Kennedy made a major confession during the latest episode of Vanderpump Rules when he told his best friend Lala Kent that he is in love with her – but she says she only sees him as a brother.
While away for a weekend at a cabin in Big Bear, the truth came out after Kennedy got drunk, which has become a common occurrence on the Bravo reality show. As his tenure on the show grows, so does his problems with alcohol. Is Kennedy’s drinking driving away all of his friends?
The Daily Mail is reporting that Kent was already getting concerned at how Kennedy kept “poking” at her while drinking, including when he called her new boyfriend fat and claimed she has sex with him so that he will pay her rent.
When Kennedy drinks, he becomes a different person. He gets angry, aggressive, arrogant, and often ruins everyone’s good time. It was also his drinking at SUR that got him fired as a busboy.
Kennedy is often belittling those who are close to him, but it’s especially bad with Kent because he clearly still has feelings for her. After calling her boyfriend fat a second time, Kent couldn’t take it anymore.
“Shut the f*** up, you talk about my man one more god***n time I’m gonna f***ing draw blood from your face,” Lala threatened as they screamed at one another on the porch.
Everyone could hear them arguing, and Kent began to cry as she accused him of using secrets she has told him against her. She also claimed that Kennedy had dismissed their past relationship by saying that “we f**ked.”
Kennedy responded by saying that he has a negative view of her new boyfriend because “he put the one I love in jeopardy.” He then admitted that he was jealous and said that her talk of a future with her boyfriend is something he wants because he loves her.
Kent insisted that her friendship with Kennedy needed to change, and they both need to show respect to their significant others. She later explained to the camera that it’s ok for her to have a boyfriend and for Kennedy to have a girlfriend, and it doesn’t mean they are losing each other as friends.
She then made it very clear that there would never be another romantic relationship between her and Kennedy, saying that ship has sailed and sunk.
Kennedy later told his girlfriend, Raquel Leviss, that he had Kent’s best interest at heart and he doesn’t think she will be happy with her new guy. He added that Kent is his best friend and he loves her, and he can’t support something that is rotten.
