James Kennedy's "Petty" Text to Tom Sandoval Before the Season 11 Reunion

After dealing with many difficulties in their fractured friendship on Season 11, James revealed backstage that the last text he sent to Tom Sandoval was "petty."

"I think it was Sandoval, actually, believe it or not," he told about the last castmate he was in contact with. "I'm not sure if this was petty or something."

As James explained, he saw a clip from several years back about Sandoval dissing his DJing career

"Basically, five years ago, Tom made a comment saying, like, 'Who does he think he is? He's no Calvin Harris, Steve Aoki, it's not like he has a Vegas residency....' I did get a clip that reminded me of him saying that to my face five years ago," James said. "And it's just funny now that I do have a residency now in Vegas at the same place that Calvin Harris does. It kind of blows my mind, and I just wanted him to know that, for some reason. I thought a couple days before the reunion was the perfect time, wouldn't you?"

In addition, James also just received a "sweet" text from Scheana's husband, Brock Davies, who was at the reunion as well. 

"Brock did text me yesterday, just saying something sweet, actually. He was very sweet, indeed. He just noticed the growth," James said, before actually reading the text he got from Brock aloud. "He said, 'Brother, as I mentioned in my [Instagram] story, we've had some moments over the years, but I'm very proud of the work you've put in yourself, and the dedication, buddy. It speaks wonders, and I don't think I've said that to you, or said it enough. Congratulations, buddy, well done. Brock.'"

How the Vanderpump Rules Cast Prepared for the Season 11 Reunion

James wasn't the only Vanderpump Rules cast member whose last text was to Tom Sandoval. 

Backstage, Tom Schwartz said, "I texted Tom Sandoval... I just asked Tom Sandoval if he was here. That's pretty f-cking boring."

Likewise, Sandoval's last exchange was with "Tom Schwartz," he revealed.

Lala and Katie, meanwhile, were last in touch with one another. "I think it was probably Lala, because she asked if I was gonna be on time, and I said, 'LOL,'" Katie said. 

Lala agreed that she spoke to Katie last, and that she asked her "about what we were wearing."

Ariana's most recent text was also sent to Katie. 

"The last person I texted before the reunion was probably Katie, because I think this morning I told her I was pooping," she said before laughing. "Like, those are my last text messages."

Scheana, on the other hand, was in touch with Lala before heading to the reunion set. 

"The last person I texted before the reunion was Lala," Scheana said to
