As fans will recall, Katie and James were involved in a messy feud last season. This resulted in Katie famously giving her SUR boss Lisa Vanderpump an ultimatum to fire James, after she accused him of fat-shaming her. However, judging by her recent photos, they appear to have reconciled.
Katie took to her Instagram Stories this week and shared a couple of images of Lala Kent and the newly-sober James, which seems to confirm that James is not only back in a good place with Lala, but also with Katie.
In Katie’s supportive post, Lala and James were seen dancing to their newest track, “Ride With Me,” at TomTom during Monday night’s finale party for Vanderpump Rules season eight.
The entire cast of Vanderpump Rules was on hand on Monday night for the conclusion of filming, which also served as the one-year anniversary party for the West Hollywood restaurant Tom Schwartz and Tom Sandoval co-own with Lisa and her husband, Ken Todd.
Although Lala’s fiancé, Randall Emmett, is not a cast member of the series and has never been featured on the show, he was present for the finale taping. He was seen mingling with a number of Lala’s co-stars, including Jax Taylor and Brittany Cartwright.
James’ girlfriend, Raquel Leviss, was also present on Monday night.

As fans of Vanderpump Rules may have seen, Lala and James reconciled their friendship in June, shortly after filming began on season eight. But they quickly suffered another falling out as James poked fun at Randall’s feud with 50 Cent.
As for James’ assumed reconciliation with Katie, that may have been prompted by his recent decision to get sober. After all, his past boozy behavior appeared to be at the root of his issues with the rest of the cast.
Vanderpump Rules season eight is expected to air on Bravo TV sometime later this year.
