James: Not Once Did I Think Therapy Would Actually Help
James Kennedy shares his thoughts on Tom and Jax and dishes on going to couple's therapy with Kristen.
Bravotv.com: During this episode we see you have a guy’s night with the boys, is it difficult hanging out with Jax and Tom Sandoval given their history with Kristen?
James Kennedy: Boys night honestly was great fun. I find myself stuck between a rock and a hard place with Jax, constantly being the man looking for ways to sabotage my plans. As for Tom, he was the first person of the group that I became close mates with and even though he and Jax both have a "history" with Kristen, Tom’s history was real so I don't feel uncomfortable around him. I don't have an issue with Jax unless he is being unrealistic…(which is most of the time). Sorry but it's true, I feel like his jealousy overlaps with what he actually cares about. I don't think he hates me, I just think he is intimidated.
Bravotv.com: Were you dreading going to therapy with Kristen or were you hoping it would help fix your relationship?
JK: Oh man, completely dreading it! First part of me thought "why on earth am I going to couple's therapy at 23 years old!?" Then the other half of me was thinking "man, I'm way too hung over for this!" Not once did I think therapy would actually help Kristen and I's relationship, unless we kept going and going, but even still that's a lot of money and time to gamble on a relationship that you think is close to its end.
Bravotv.com: In therapy you revealed that Kristen has hurt you a lot in the relationship and you feel like you want to hurt her back when you're fighting. What do you think lead up to this point?
JK: It's just constant lies that have escalated into arguments. I have a bit of a temper when I'm pushed into situations that embarrass me...upset me...or generally make me feel ganged up on. Then I start hurting people verbally and the crappy thing is I know how to hit people right in the heart with words. It's one thing I always regret after an argument.
Bravotv.com: When it comes to Lala you admit to having "a bit of a wandering eye", do you think you're at the point in your relationship with Kristen that you don't care anymore? Or is it kind of like out of sight, out of mind?
JK: No, it wasn't an out of mind out of sight thing. I guess you can say at this point in my life I'm ready to explore new people and new things. It took a lot for me to realize and it was very hard.
