He added, “Well, who isn’t a fan of Vanderpump Rules? The sexiest f***ing show!” Kennedy continued to say that he has no problem with dating a fan. “I don’t see the obsession with don’t date a fan.”

He continued, “I do like this girl, but I mean, I don’t know. We’ll see what happens. I can’t ask any girl to do that.” Kennedy added that he didn’t “want to make the same mistakes” that he made in his relationship with Raquel Leviss.
