Following James Kennedy’s breakup with Kristen Doute he became very close with the newest cast member at the time, Lala Kent. As he chased her around trying aimlessly to hook up, the two ultimately decided to become good friends. Kennedy and Kent as a duo went on to put a rift between them and the other cast members. Over some time, Ariana, Tom and Scheana have warmed up to them in a way but throughout most of season 5 James and Lala really only operated together, separate from the group when the camera was rolling. With reports of Lala leaving, does James fit the show?
One could argue that James has become better friends with Tom and Ariana but in what ways could they provide Bravo with quality screen time? Sure the occasional lunch or house visit could work, but what else beyond that? He was fired from SUR and PUMP but would Lisa bring him back to have his nutty personality help out the shows ratings? He is after all a close friend of Lisa’s son Max. James and Jax were actually pretty friendly throughout the reunion, could they be getting their own spinoff? Ok, lets not go that far.
Here you have Kim Kardashian West, who is married to Kanye West and just a few feet away is James Kennedy, who calls himself the White Kanye.
