James Kennedy reveals he has BLOCKED both Tom Sandoval and ex Raquel Leviss after THAT affair
Vanderpump Rules star James Kennedy is keeping his distance from Tom Sandoval and ex Raquel Leviss in the aftermath of their shocking affair.
Speaking exclusively with DailyMail.com at the Vanderpump Dog Foundation Gala, Kennedy, 31, revealed that while he has texted several cast members since the drama erupted, he has blocked both Sandoval, 39, and Leviss, 28.
‘I’ve actually got them both blocked,’ he admitted.
‘It’s just exhausting. When I switch off, I switch off. I’m like a doctor after surgery, you know when he gets home he’s just done. That’s like how I work with Vanderpump. When I get home, I’m just like off the clock… I put the boundaries up.’
Though Kennedy is no longer on texting terms with his ex-fiancee and Sandoval, he does correspond with Scheana Shay, Ariana Madix, and has even reached out to Tom Schwartz, despite him coming under scrutiny for what he may have known about the affair.

‘I text Scheana a lot, Ariana of course, I’ve even texted Schwartz a little bit,’ he said.
Fans have been gripped by the infidelity, dubbed ‘Scandoval’, ever since it broke back in March.
Tom’s months-long affair with Raquel led to the end of his nine-year relationship with Ariana, and last week’s raw season finale of Vanderpump Rules captured the immediate fallout of the betrayal.
For James, the finale was the ‘saddest’ cherry to top the highly-anticipated drama.
‘It was crazy,’ he said of watching the finale. ‘Watching it all back, you know, it’s definitely just a road to the top of the mountain with all of that, and last night was definitely the cherry on top. The saddest cherry I’ve ever seen, but definitely the cherry on top.’
Difficult times aside, James was happy to report his relationship with girlfriend Ally Lewber was going well.
Asked how their relationship was going, they both replied: ‘Good!’
The couple were even matching in pink for the gala.
James admitted he was the one behind their coordinating looks: ‘I planned it. Let’s be real!’
