Andy Cohen James Kennedy Vanderpump Rules Watch What Happens Live - Andy Cohen

James Kennedy Is Rude To WWHL Caller; Admits He’s “Playing the Game” On Pump Rules To Get AirTime!

Vanderpump Rules‘ resident villain James Kennedy was in rare form when he stopped by Watch What Happens Live with Andy Cohen on Monday night.

The self-dubbed “White Kanye” was arrogant and rude as he mocked a caller before she could even muster out her question. James was also sipping on an unknown substance all night long.

While James previously vowed to stop drinking, in an effort to get back in the good graces of his boss Lisa Vanderpump, he has been visibly intoxicated at events over the last several months.

“Hey, Andy! I love you so much, I just want to say that first and foremost. And Mazal to your baby. My question is for James,” the caller began. “I wanna know what Lisa thinks about his recent behavior in the interviews where’s he’s…”

Before the caller could get out her full question James cut her off by snoring and waving his hands in the air like a petulant child.

“Let’s get to the point, darling!” James urged. “Let’s get to the point.”

Andy quickly intervened, sarcastically telling James, “Ohhhhh, sweetie.”

James replied, “What’s the question, though?”

“You’re trash-talking in interviews, but you’re being sweet in person,” Andy explained.

“I’ve gotta do what I can right now to get to Mexico at this point,” James replied. “Play the game, or don’t play at all. Don’t come to L.A. if you don’t wanna play chess, babe.”

“Are people in L.A. playing chess?” Andy asked.

“Yeah, everyone’s playing chess,” James shot back. “If you don’t know chess…”

Andy’s other WWHL guest, Lindsay Hubbard of Summer House jumped into the conversation asking James, “Do you know how to play chess?”

“I did! Look at me now, babe. Look at me now,” James replied as he tossed his hands in the air in celebration.

As Andy attempted to pivot the conversation James continued his shenanigans and stuck his tongue out at the camera.

 Andy then asked James, “Do you really think you’ve changed?”

“I mean what kind of question is that,” James replied as he rolled his eyes. He then mockingly added, “Yeah I’ve changed.”

James continued, “Like I don’t know. I think so,  I’ve changed for the better. Vanderpump Rules every single year I learn more and more. I want to become a better man every single day. And look I’m 27 and I’m trying my best. And you know as far as my life goes I’m really happy with the way things have turned out touring all over North America. I couldn’t be happier. As for my relationship, I couldn’t be happier with her, with Raquel at home. The one thing is my job. I need to get back at SUR, See You Next Tuesday.”

When asked if he thinks he overreacted about being disinvited to the group trip to Mexico, James said, “Of course.”

“I think I overreacted just a little bit. I apologize to Schwartz for saying those words. And you know you live and you learn,” James explained with a plastered smirk on his face.

Vanderpump Rules airs on Mondays at 9 p.m. EST on Bravo.
