Vanderpump Rules' Raquel Leviss on Why She Split from James Kennedy, When She Knew They Were Done Leviss recently expanded on the reasons for the split during a conversation on Scheana Shay's Scheananigans podcast. "It was getting to the point where my family and him were not meshing well and the future of Thanksgivings and Christmases and holidays was looking like it was going to be either James or my family," she said. "Especially like if we had a baby, James would make my parents out as like the not-good grandparents and kind of put that in [our kids'] heads. Just foreseeing this future and what it was all coming down to and I was like, 'I don't want that.' "
