Three months after he and Raquel Leviss called off their engagement after about six months, the Vanderpump Rules cast member and DJ took to his social media page, where he shared a short video of himself kissing the cheek of his yet-to-be-named flame.
“Baby girl,” James wrote in the caption of his January 26 clip, which was captured by the Queens of Bravo on Instagram.
As Pump Rules fans may have seen, James first debuted his new girl on social media last month as the two of them spent time together in Las Vegas. And days later, his castmate, Scheana Shay, shaded the woman as “a fan.”
Although James didn’t initially react to Scheana’s comment, he eventually confirmed that his new girl is, in fact, a fan while admitting to meeting her at one of Tom Sandoval‘s Most Extra shows, where he was acting as the event’s DJ, on Lala Kent‘s podcast, Give Them Lala.
“She was with her friends,” he recalled of their initial encounter. “They were fans, they were in the business. And who f-cking isn’t a fan of Vanderpump Rules? [It’s] the best show! I’m not scared of fans. I don’t see the obsession with ‘don’t date a fan.’ I would date all the fans!”
Also on his Instagram page over the weekend, James shared a since-deleted video, seemingly of his mystery girl attending a Shania Twain concert.
“Shania Twain killed it….xx,” James wrote in the caption of a video that featured a woman dancing with her hands in the air in front of him.
Following James’ posts, he received a number of messages from his fans and followers in regard to his new relationship. And, while some felt that he was moving on too quickly, others were happy to see him enjoying his life.
“Glad to see you’re moving on. You never did anything directly to Raquel. In my opinion she stayed with you just to get clout on the show,” one person said.
“Let the man move on! Enjoy your life James. We only get one,” wrote another.
A third fan said that both he and Raquel have “clearly moved on.”
“He looks happy. Can’t be in a funk for the rest of your life. Party on and have your fun James,” they encouraged.
One person even suspected that the woman in the video wasn’t James’ new girl, but rather Lala, who he joked about dating earlier this year.
“Is that Lala?” the person asked.
No word yet on a 10th season of Vanderpump Rules.
