Ariana Madix called out James Kennedy for being “f–king rude” during a heated argument on Wednesday’s episode of “Vanderpump Rules.”
“I wish you could hear your tone of voice when you speak to me because you’ve been very f–king rude to me,” Madix firmly told Kennedy during a welcome dinner for Scheana Shay and Brock Davies’ wedding in Mexico.
Earlier that day, the DJ “nearly got in a fight” with one of Davies’ friends, who had drunkenly hugged him as if he knew him, and Madix reprimanded Kennedy for his reaction.
During their argument, Kennedy claimed to have “diffused the situation and chose not to punch the guy in the face,” admitting that he wished Madix would be on his side.
“Not wanting there to be a fight is the only side to be on,” Madix firmly said while clapping. “I’m on the side of not wanting there to be a f–king fight period! Period!”
She continued to scream, “I don’t like him doing it, and I don’t like you doing it OK! Period! I will raise my voice because when I talk at a normal volume, you don’t f–king listen to me! I’ve had enough. We’re done!”
Lala Kent, 32, also got involved in their fight and claimed that Kennedy “almost shoved a [separate] guy to the ground.”

“No, I didn’t! Pick your words f–king carefully right now,” Kennedy warned Kent, to which she responded by threatening to “come across the goddamn table and knock your f–king ass out.”
The tense argument only ended when Kennedy’s girlfriend, Ally Lewber, left the dinner table in embarrassment.
In a confessional, Kennedy detailed the situation and claimed that he had “never seen this guy in my f–king life” before he approached the DJ.
“By the way, his eyes are like rolling to the back of his head, drool slobbering, like mate get off my f–king nice ass jacket!” the 31-year-old explained, adding that after he physically reacted, the friend “stumbled back three paces.”
Madix, 37, then got upset with him for treating one of Shay’s wedding guests like that.
“I should’ve f–king Will Smith-ed backhanded his f–king bitch ass,” Kennedy added in his confessional, referring to Will Smith slapping comedian Chris Rock at the 2022 Oscars.
In her own confessional, Lewber, 27, said, “I cannot sit here and watch James act like this. It’s making me question everything. Why am I in Mexico and who is this person that I’m dating?”
Kennedy’s ex-fiancée, Raquel Leviss, also chimed in on the situation during a confessional interview, admitting that “watching Ally cringe with embarrassment over how James is acting right now makes me so happy that that is not me anymore.”
Bravo cameras didn’t appear to be filming when the altercation between the friend and Kennedy, so it’s not totally clear what went down.
Davies and Shay’s wedding was teased in the mid-season trailer of “VPR,” which will also feature the aftermath of Madix discovering her then-boyfriend Tom Sandoval’s affair with Leviss.
Back on March 1, Madix found an explicit video of the former beauty queen on the singer’s phone, which exposed a “months-long” affair. She immediately dumped him, although the two still live in the same house.
Since then, Sandoval and Leviss have been spotted together multiple times but their relationship status is still up in the air.
“Vanderpump Rules” airs Wednesdays at 9 p.m. ET on Bravo.
