James Kennedy Weighs In on Scheana Shay and Mike Shay's Divorce

Two months after Scheana Shay and Mike Shay confirmed they are divorcing after two years of marriage, James Kennedy shared his take on the couple's separation. James has long been friends with the couple, and while he says he's sad to hear about their separation, the news hardly surprised him.

How to Watch

Watch Vanderpump Rules on Peacock and the Bravo app.  

"I was the first to say it — I mean honestly it really sounds horrible — but I was the first to say that that marriage is not going to last more than a year. It's sad really. I was at the wedding and I love Shay, and Scheana and I have gone through our ups and downs and still do, but do I feel sorry? Yeah, of course. Marriage is a sacred bond and they ended it so quickly," the Vanderpump Rules DJ told The Daily Dish. "But I did say it wasn't gonna happen 'cause Scheana's just a bossy bitch and Shay is just Shay."

James admits it's been a while since he's clocked a conversation with Shay (Tom Sandoval also recently shared a similar sentiment to us). "I don't really talk to him that much," he said. "Tom kind of made the effort last year to be more of his friend but, you know, whatever."

However, he remains close to Scheana. "Scheana and I are cool. We go Wednesdays to karaoke with the group together still," he said. "She's dope. She brings Brittany [Cartwright] around. Brittany seems like a nice girl. She's only nice to me when Jax [Taylor] isn't around because obviously if she's nice to me in front of Jax then Jax will get drunk and start losing his mind. Lala [Kent] and Scheana kind of still have their little tiffs, but Lala's always having her little tiffs with the girls."
