James, 28, worked as a deejay one day at TomTom, despite his firing from SUR. After his set, Lisa, 59, asked, “You doing alright?” He responded, “Yes. Definitely. I really think so. Yeah.”

In a confessional James said, “I just killed it. This wasn’t the conversation I wanted to have with Lisa after my set.”

Lisa softened her tone and told her former employee, “Listen. I’m glad you did a good job today but I’m not interested in you doing one job. I’m interested in your welfare.”

The former Real Housewives of Beverly Hills star has been very critical of James for his drinking habit. On a December 2018 episode of VPR, she fired the DJ from SUR because of his inappropriate comments towards his female coworkers when he was drunk.

“There’s a darkness inside me that comes out. Seriously, I’m never touching alcohol again,” he told Lisa. “Please, this is the only thing I've got. I'm sober now – I'm a nice person when I'm sober.”
