Katie Maloney and Stassi Schroeder Call Out James Kennedy for His Treatment of Kristen Doute

The SURver didn't hold back her feelings about the #PumpRules DJ on Twitter.

By Laura Rosenfeld

James Kennedy's fellow SURvers have had a lot of opinions about his behavior on Vanderpump Rules this season. However, some of the strongest hate has come from Stassi Schroeder, who hasn't been involved in all of the drama surrounding James, his ex Kristen Doute, and new boo Lala Kent, but will return to the show later on this season. "I'm just gonna say right away I don't know James," Stassi said during the latest episode of her podcast Straight Up with Stassi. "But what I saw on TV freaked my brain out, and I just don't want everybody to see me coming into the show and think I condone this behavior. I don't. It's really weird, and I don't feel like anybody should be like this. It's so gross, and he's acting despicable on this show."

How to Watch

Watch Vanderpump Rules on Peacock and the Bravo app.  

Soon enough, James fired back at Stassi on Twitter, saying that his ex, Kristen, may not be as tight with the Vanderpump Rules alum as she thinks. "@stassischroeder can talk sh-- all she wants," James tweeted. "Kristen talked about how much she hates her every night as if they were bedtime stories."

Now James' tweet seems to have inspired something of a Twitter feud between him and Katie Maloney. "@itsjameskennedy I remember you talking sh-- on Kristen to me when you were already dating her," Katie responded to James on Twitter. "I guess everyone goes through it."

She went on to say that she wasn't trying to "burn" James but that she was "seeing the big picture through a large lens."

Out of all of the current Vanderpump Rules cast members, Katie has been one of the most vocal about her distaste for James in light of his treatment of Kristen before and after their recent breakup on the show. "I've had my own accounts with James where he has been very disrespectful in the way he speaks to me," Katie said during a recent interview with E! News"And then to see him do that to Kristen, even tenfold, it's despicable to me, honestly, and I'm really happy and proud of her for nipping that in the bud and getting far away from that and getting to a much better, healthier spot in her own life."

How will James, Katie, and the rest of the Vanderpump Rules crew react to Stassi's return to the show? Get a sneak peek in the Season 4 supertease, below.
