James Kennedy and Lala Kent won’t be receiving a second invite to appear on Andy Cohen’s Watch What Happens Live talk show. In an Ask Andy segment, posted on Friday, Andy made clear that the two Vanderpump Rules stars destroyed their chances of ever getting asked back by cursing throughout their appearance on the show on Monday night. Andy thinks that James and Lala’s behavior was so bad that he told their boss, Lisa Vanderpump, that they even made Jax Taylor and Kristen Doute look like Barack and Michelle Obama.
Andy told his assistant, Daryn Carp, that he was actually very excited to have James and Lala on his show, and in particular James because of how entertaining he has been recently on Vanderpump Rules. Andy revealed that prior to the show going live, James told him that he was so excited to be on that he couldn’t sleep the night prior.
Unfortunately, that excitement didn’t result in very good TV. James and Lala seemed angry and defensive the entire time. They also cursed throughout the live show, despite being repeatedly told by Andy to watch their language, which meant that much of their conversation had to be bleeped out. Andy admitted that he found Lala and James’ behavior “gross” and that it left “a really bad taste” in his mouth. Andy also admitted that the viewers”hated” the show.
When asked if James Kennedy and Lala Kent will get scolded by their Vanderpump Rules boss Lisa Vanderpump, Andy revealed that he texted with Lisa about James and Lala’s behavior.
“I bet they will. She texted me that night…I texted her back and said, ‘Let me put it this way. They made Jax and Kristen look like Michelle and Barack Obama.”
Viewers have watched Jax Taylor and Kristen Doute engage in some pretty bad behavior over the seasons, so to have two other people make them look like saints in comparison is quite the feat. In fact, some viewers have compared James to Jax and wondered if James is the new bad boy of the show.
On Monday night’s episode of Vanderpump Rules, James and Jax argued and almost came to blows because Jax was so infuriated at James’ behavior. It was so heated that Lisa threatened to send James home. Jax yelled that everything was revolving around James. Both Lisa and SUR manager Peter Madrigal had to calm both men down.
The drama between James and Jax continued on James and Lala’s Watch What Happens Live appearance afterwards. Jax bashed James and Lala’s behavior on Twitter as he watched them on TV. When a viewer called in and asked Lala if she ever had sex with Jax, Lala got her revenge by hinting that Jax is hiding something.
“No. Ewww. I know a little secret. After hearing what he just tweeted, I know your secret, Jax. You would never ever in your life have a chance with <clicks tongue> me. And if anyone else knew about your little secret, they wouldn’t either.”
James had no qualms about revealing Jax’s “secret.” He piped up to call Jax a “dirty dirty boy.” “It’s called herpes,” he added. Jax responded by tweeting that they’re just trying to be relevant.
While James and Lala may not regret revealing Jax’s “secret,” they do regret swearing so much on Watch What Happens Live. As previously reported by the Inquisitr, both James and Lala apologized to Andy afterwards for all the swearing that they did on his show.
Lisa Vanderpump is currently on vacation right now for the holidays, but James and Lala, as Andy predicted, can expect to get a stern talk from her when she gets back. She promised Andy that “all will be dealt with.”
Will James Kennedy and Lala Kent get another chance to go on Watch What Happens Live and perhaps redeem themselves? Unfortunately, the answer is no. On Ask Andy, Andy gave a resounding “no” when asked if James and Lala are ever getting invited back to the New York City clubhouse.
