How to Watch

Watch Vanderpump Rules on Bravo Tuesdays at 8/7c and next day on Peacock. Catch up on the Bravo app.  

The Vanderpump Rules DJ is officially four weeks sober on Friday, August 2, he announced on Instagram. He said he was "feeling fre$h" in the post and thanked everyone for all of their love and support.

James' girlfriend, Raquel Leviss, congratulated James on hitting this major milestone in the comments to his post on Instagram. "So incredibly proud of you. 4 weeks is such a huge accomplishment!" she gushed. "I’m so happy I get to celebrate with you."

James has practiced sobriety on and off over the past couple of seasons of Vanderpump Rules at the urging of his boss Lisa Vanderpump and after seeing the negative impact alcohol has had on his behavior. However, at the Vanderpump Rules Season 7 reunion, James admitted that he was no longer sober (clip above). "He just doesn't seem to understand," Lisa said at the reunion. "He can't stop. He's his own worst enemy."

These days, James is proud of how far he's come. He celebrated the occasion by buying a new black Beamer, which he showed off in a photo in the post. "Seriously though when I came to the U.S and saw Sunset Blvd for the first I made it my mission to be one of those guys in a gangsta car driving like some 'Entourage' s--t .... and wow I’ve already exceeded my expectations," he said. "I'm so thankful and my work to becoming the best human I can be continues."
