James Kennedy tells TooFab: "It's good to have her back."
TooFab caught up with the Bravo reality stars on Saturday night at Maxim's annual Halloween party, where James said filming with Lala for the upcoming season has been "great" and that it's "good to have her back."
"Me and her are a very dynamic duo on the show, obviously," James told TooFab. "We like music together, so it's good to have her back."
"Lala and I are like best friends still," he added. "Raquel loves Lala. We're all very close."
Tom and Ariana were more coy about specifics, but they also confirmed the news to TooFab.
"Dynamics are shifting," Ariana said of the upcoming season. "Things are growing and changing. Things are maybe falling apart, getting put back together. Just when you think that there's not gonna be any more drama, you think like, 'Oh, they've done it all.' No, there's always something else."
Us Weekly previously cited "multiple sources" when first reporting Kent's return back in March before the Season 5 finale and reunion aired.
James also revealed he got his job back at SUR -- but apparently, that's a "surprise" he wasn't supposed to give away just yet.
"That's a secret," he said. "That's a surprise to the season. We can't give that out yet. People have been waiting for me. They thought I'd be left in the dirt, but it's good to be back at SUR. Lisa's amazing."
"Vanderpump Rules" returns to Bravo in November.
