James Kenney made an appearance on Andy Cohen’s late-night talk show, Watch What Happens Live, on Tuesday night, where he addressed Katie Maloney’s reaction to his return to SUR Restaurant.
After a caller phoned into the series’ After Show and mentioned how Kennedy’s Vanderpump Rules co-star had left a supportive message on Instagram after Kennedy announced he would be returning to SUR Restaurant to host his weekly See You Next Tuesday events, Kennedy was asked about where he stands with Maloney.
“Are you two friends now and if so, is there anyone you still need to make amends with?”
“Yeah,” Kennedy replied. “Katie and I are on really great terms now. I’d say we are friends. I say, ‘Hi,’ to her at all the events that I see them at and I see her at TomTom sometimes too and I’m really happy to be in the place that I am with her.”
Maloney had previously demanded Kennedy be fired from SUR Restaurant after he body-shamed her during season seven’s Los Angeles Pride Parade.
In regard to the second half of the caller’s question, Kennedy said that when it comes to his relationships with the rest of the Vanderpump Rules cast, he is on good terms with nearly everyone from the show.
“As far as making amends with anyone else from the cast, I mean, I’d say I’m pretty good with everybody, you know?” Kennedy confirmed.
Kennedy then admitted that he and Stassi Schroeder would benefit from sitting down and having a conversation with one another.
While Schroeder and Doute aren’t friends at the moment, Kennedy suspects it is Schroeder’s past friendship with Doute that has led her to think ill of him.
“Me and Stassi could have a convo. I don’t know why she doesn’t like me so much but it’s probably from hanging out with Kristen too long,” Kennedy explained.
As Vanderpump Rules fans well know, Doute and Kennedy briefly dated one another years ago on the show and the majority of their time together was quite plagued by drama.
Although Kennedy and Leviss endured plenty of relationship hardships during the early moments of Vanderpump Rules season eight, mainly due to Kennedy’s past drinking habits, they appear to be in a great place with one another today.
In fact, after last week’s episode, Kennedy honored Leviss with a post on his Instagram page in which he labeled her his “rock.”
