On last night's episode of Vanderpump Rules, James Kennedy drunkenly confessed to being in love with his gay best friend, Logan, whom he then kissed.
It came in at about 47,000 on the list of most eyebrow-raising behaviors James has engaged in this season, but for some reason, that's the move his cast mates are fixated upon.
The previews for next week's episode showed Kristen Doute--James' only real competition for the title of most sociopathic Vanderpump cast member--insisting that Kennedy come out of the closet, because ... well, we're sure she'll eventually come up with some reason why his sexuality is any of her business.
Just give her some time.
Kristen wasn't alone in being far more concerned with the possibility that James is bisexual than with the fact that he's likely a bipolar alcoholic with abusive tendencies.
"Watching James and Logan interact for like two seconds, I don't know what's going on," Jax Taylor remarked during Monday's episode.
"I just don't know who's the top and who's the bottom."
And apparently, James' castmates aren't just playing it up for the cameras.
In fact, it seems the only one who isn't concerned is Kennedy's girlfriend, Raquel Leviss.
One insider tells Radar Online that James' "friends" have been relentlessly pressuring him to come out:
"They told him that he really needs to start living as his true self," said the source.
"They think James needs to come out."
The situation is interesting, but not for the reason the Kristen and company think:
1. The questioning of James' sexuality and the campaign to forcibly draw him out of the closet comes on the heels of an episode in which the cast repeatedly boasted about their concern for social justice and their cred within the LGBT community.
Side-eyeing your straight friend's friendship with his gay roommate isn't exactly the height of wokeness.
2. In that same episode, James got daytime sh-tfaced and heaped verbal abuse on a woman in a public setting.
No one seemed to have a problem with that, but kissing his male friend on the cheek?! Mon dieu!
Look, horrendous behavior from the Vanderpump cast is nothing new, but coming on the heels of their annual pride parade episode, this buffoonery is especially nauseating.
Watch Vanderpump Rules online to remind yourself of the extent to which these people need to grow up.
