Raquel Leviss and James Kennedy announced their decision to end their engagement in December 2021.
Confirmation of the split came after rumors swirled that Leviss and Kennedy shared the news during the Vanderpump Rules reunion, which was filmed days earlier.
“After these 5 wonderful years we had together, we decided we had two different goals and made the decision to break off the engagement. We love each other very much, but we don’t love each other anymore. We want nothing but the best for each other, so please think positive. Send love,” Leviss captioned an Instagram post.
Since Kennedy and his VPR co-star and friend Lala Kent ended their respective relationships around the same time, many fans couldn’t help but wonder if the two would date. In fact, they were asked about it while sitting down with Andy Cohen on the Jan. 11, 2022 episode of “Watch What Happens Live.”
Shortly after the episode aired, Leviss’ social media activity had fans quite curious about how she feels about their ex-post breakup — and his potential to date someone new — including Kent.
Here’s what you need to know:
On “Watch What Happens, Live,” Cohen couldn’t help but ask his guests, Kennedy and Lala Kent, if they would ever consider a relationship now that they’re both single.
“Look, I never say never to anything these days,” Kennedy said, according to the Daily Mail. He admitted the two are just friends — at least for now.
After the show aired, an Instagram post shared by the _surrules account caught Leviss’ attention. The post showed a video from WWHL and the caption read: “James [and] Lala replies if they would ever date again.” A Screenshot shared on Reddit proves that Leviss actually liked the post.
In the thread, fans debated why Leviss liked it.
“She probably liked it because she realized her paranoia wasn’t just in her imagination and that James gaslighted her. But conversely, if she was only dating James to be on the show/famous, she might like it too because it means she’s free from him,” wrote one Redditor.
“I DIED seeing that she liked it,” added another.
“Honestly she could be picky if she likes it? I mean James said he was on the phone with Raquel earlier that day,” a third person wrote.
“Ooo she Jelly,” was a fourth comment.
As for what Leviss really thinks about her ex-dating Kent, she seems to agree. Photographers met her on January 12, 2022 and asked her about it. “I mean, good luck to them,” she said, according to Us Weekly.
Since their split, Leviss has moved out of the apartment she shared with Kennedy and found her own life. While at WWHL, Kennedy first spoke about the failed engagement and revealed the two are amicable.
“Yesterday me and Raquel were still on the phone, you know, Raquel and I are still friends after the breakup,” Kennedy told Cohen, according to TooFab.
“I currently live in beautiful Los Angeles. We both moved out of the apartment, the lease is signed, everything is settled. I have a nice apartment, a loft with concrete walls, it’s gangster,” he added.
Interestingly, Kent Cohen also said that she and Leviss are still cool. “I wouldn’t say we’re very close, but she’s hard to adore. Not only is she beautiful, she has the heart to be,” Kent told Cohen.
