James Kennedy and his Season 3 girlfriend, Kristen Doute, may have split after filming last year’s Vanderpump Rules, but according to a series of new tweets, that doesn’t mean James Kennedy won’t be seen on Season 4. In fact, he appears to remain close with several members of the cast, and yesterday, he traveled to Hawaii with Scheana Marie, Mike Shay, and two others.

A short while later, James Kennedy shared a second photo, which included Tom Schwartz.
Since arriving in Hawaii, James Kennedy and the cast of Vanderpump Rules Season 4, which is expected to debut later this year, have shared a number of photos. Ironically, however, none of those photos have included Doute, and judging by her own social media accounts, she’s still back in Los Angeles.
Following their alleged split earlier this year, many fans of Vanderpump Rules wondered if they would see James Kennedy during Season 4, but now, that question has all but been put to rest. Meanwhile, his ex-girlfriend’s role on the show is less clear — especially considering she was fired by Lisa Vanderpump during the series’ third season.
As the Inquisitr previously reported, Doute and James Kennedy were still together after Season 3 wrapped, despite a heated moment between the pair at Scheana Marie and Mike Shay’s wedding. During a Hollywood Life podcast after the season aired, Doute spoke of her then-boyfriend, explaining what led to their fight.
“I’m not proud of what happened. It’s not something I condone. It’s not something I’m proud of. I’m not excited to talk about it. It shouldn’t have happened, and it’s never okay, [but] there was a lot of, like, in my face, and like, pushing, just not letting me walk away.”
Months later, while chatting with Us Weekly, Doute revealed she was living alone, but insisted she and James Kennedy were still together.
“It was overwhelming moving in by myself, but also so liberating. It was a blank canvas in more ways than one. Not only did I get to decorate my space however I wanted, it was also a chance to start over with new memories and new, positive energy.”
“He stays over a lot, but I’m not ready to live with anyone. I think it’s important for me to really work on me. It’s proven to be healthy for our relationship.”
James Kennedy has yet to officially confirm his Vanderpump Rules return.
