Vanderpump Rules star James Kennedy and his girlfriend Raquel Leviss aren’t letting the haters get to them. On Wednesday, April 3, the lovebirds attended the Guess Festival Prep Event in Los Angeles, California and they looked positively smitten. Clearly the two aren’t bothered by their castmates’ calls for a breakup earlier this season.
The couple kept things cozy and casual. James, 27, added a leather jacket to a basic white tee and jeans combo while Raquel, 24, rocked a colorblock windbreaker and a black miniskirt.
They were all smiles as they kicked back on the grass. Raquel took a moment to cool off with a popsicle.
Back in December, the former SUR deejay was accused of cheating and his castmates didn’t understand why his model girlfriend chose to stick it out and ignore the rumors. Kristen Doute and Lala Kent questioned her motives. Lala, 29, called her decision to stay in the relationship “dumb.”
However, Raquel was quick to the defend herself. “Using the word dumb to describe why I choose to stay with James is completely inappropriate,” she wrote. “I grew up not knowing I had a learning disability and wasn’t diagnosed with ADD until college.”
“I am NOT stupid,” she added. “In fact, in college I figured out the way I learned best and worked very hard for my degree graduating with honors.”
During a recent appearance on Watch What Happens Live, James hinted that things were going so well in this relationship that a proposal was imminent. After host Andy Cohen asked if they planned to get married James answered, “She's definitely ‘the one’ if there is ‘one,’ so soon, for sure.'”
