'Vanderpump Rules' Star James Kennedy Claims He Will 'Support' Scorned Costar Ariana Madix 'No Matter What' Following Cheating Scandal
Vanderpump Rules star James Kennedy has officially taken sides amid the explosive aftermath of ex-costars Tom Sandoval and Raquel Leviss' months-long affair.
On Friday, March 3, it was revealed that Sandoval and longtime girlfriend Ariana Madix called it quits after the 37-year-old discovered intimate videos of Leviss on her then-boyfriend's phone.
Now, Kennedy — who was previously engaged to Leviss prior to their December 2021 split — admitted he was Team Ariana all the way.
"I'm here for Ariana and she's definitely a great friend of mine, she always has been and we're here to support her no matter what," he told an outlet in an interview published on Friday, March 10.
The 31-year-old also admitted that he supported costar Scheana Shay after rumors swirled the reality star physically attacked Leviss after she found out about the bombshell affair.
"Yep, she knows well," Kennedy said, but noted, "I don't know much about it because I've not been able to speak to Scheana in person."
As for Kennedy's other opinions on the scandal aptly dubbed the Scandoval, the Bravolebrity teased, "everyone has to wait for the reunion to hear what I have to say."
"It's gonna be very interesting," he added. "Everyone's gotta watch it to see what happens."
