James Kennedy was fired by Lisa Vanderpump after he fat-shamed VPR co-star Katie Maloney-Schwartz, but learned exclusively the 'RHOBH' star re-hired him right after his bombshell exit!

On Dec. 9, which was months after the intense firing scene with Vanderpump was filmed, Kennedy posted a tweet that confirmed he was clearly not still fired!

“Yo! Hello! I’m DJ’ing At SUR today and I’m gonna freestyle my heart out. For real though. I’m spinning at 4pm. Come to SUR today,” he wrote.

But that is not the only time post-Vanderpump meltdown that Kennedy was spinning at Sur — he also claimed to have been there on Oct. 23 and Nov. 21!

According to a source, “Firing James from SUR was one of the hardest things Lisa had to do and she wanted to fire him from the show as well at the time.”

“This whole entire thing has Lisa so completely torn right now because she wants him to either get sober or get lost but at the same time his drama is so good for show ratings."

“She obviously gave him another chance,” the insider told exclusively.

As fans know, Kennedy’s outrageous behavior has caused him to be singled out by his co-stars this season, who seem to be adamant on convincing Kennedy’s beauty queen girlfriend Raquell Leviss that he is cheating on her.

The final straw, however, was when Kennedy told Maloney to “lose some f**king weight!”
