VPR James Kennedy’s sobriety issues got him fired but reinstated
Over the seasons of the show, James sometimes came out really toxic with the people around him. In fact, Lisa eventually lost it with him. He always seemed to get toxic when he drank too much. TV Shows Ace reported that after a number of drunken incidents at SUR, “Lisa Vanderpump eventually fired him.” That all came to a head after James fat-shamed his co-star, Katie Maloney.
However, VPR fans later heard that he got his gig back. It seemed that he impressed Lisa enough with his efforts at sobriety to allow him back to Vanderpump Rules. All About The Truth reported that by Season 8, James and Katie at least seem to tolerate each other. But as fans know, he still tossed back some drinks in the season. However, notably, it got filmed a while back and since then James got on with staying sober.
