Vanderpump Rules: Why Fans Are Shocked By James & Raquel's Split

Recently, rumors that Vanderpump Rules stars James Kennedy and Raquel Leviss broke off their engagement were swirling, but fans were still shocked when their split was confirmed by the couple. James and Raquel have had a rocky relationship, due to James’ excessive drinking and explosive temper. However, James worked hard to become sober, and fans watched Raquel stand by him. She'd been very patient with him and given him a lot of emotional support.

This season on Vanderpump Rules, James stunned Raquel with a lavish Coachella-themed proposal, complete with fireworks. Raquel tearfully accepted, and fans were rooting for the two. However, some viewers were concerned about James’ angry outbursts, believing that he was displaying some narcissistic traits. When Raquel wanted to fix her botched nose job, James made it all about him, as he was worried that he wouldn’t like the outcome. Viewers were also concerned when he admitted to possibly damaging her nose by kissing her too forcefully. Still, James and plastic surgery fan Raquel stuck it out, which is why fans are wondering what happened that triggered the end of their relationship.

On Sunday, Dec 3, James and Raquel shared matching Instagram posts, “After these 5 wonderful years we had together, we decided we have two different goals and made the decision to call off the engagement. We love each other very much, but we aren’t in love anymore. We want nothing but the best for each other so please keep any thoughts positive. Sending Love.” They have both turned off commenting. Raquel is said to have given her ring back to James during the filming of the Vanderpump Rules season 9 reunion. Hopefully, viewers will get more answers then.

James has praised Raquel for being his rock and helping him with his sobriety. Fans often thought that Raquel was too good for him, feeling that she deserved more from a partner. However, she seemed to love him no matter what and even fretted that she wasn’t good enough for him. She shared that she lacked confidence and admitted to being envious of Lala Kent’s outspoken personality. Many viewers are wondering if the breakup is linked in some way with Lala and Randall Emmett’s split. James and Lala have hooked up in the past, and some wonder if James still carries a torch for her.

The reunion was filmed on Dec. 3, and Lisa Vanderpump quipped on Instagram, “It was a hell of a day.” There is sure to be a lot covered, such as the never-ending friction between Tom Sandoval and Katie Maloney, as well as the breakup between Lala and Randall. Cast members shared pictures of themselves on Instagram and surprisingly, it looked as if Lala and Scheana Shay were attending remotely. Bravo has not announced the air date for the reunion yet, but Vanderpump Rules fans are already eagerly awaiting the juicy details that will be spilled.
