When Andy tries to pivot to a new question, the "Vanderpump Rules" villain sticks his tongue out to the audience and lets out an evil chuckle.
On this week's episode of Lisa Vanderpump's Bravo series, James was pretty proud of himself for not going off the deep end when he saw Lala Kent verbally attacking his girlfriend, Raquel Leviss. But he seemed to be in a much less reserved mood when he appeared on Andy's show.
The self-proclaimed "white Kanye" was erratic and arrogant and mocked a caller before she could even finish asking her question. He was later seen sipping from a drink, but it's unknown what kind of beverage was in the glass (he promised his boss, Lisa, he'd stop drinking).
"Hey, Andy! I love you so much, I just want to say that first and foremost. And mazal to your baby. My question is for James," the caller began. "I wanna know what Lisa thinks about his recent behavior in the interviews where's he's..."
Toward the end of her question, the caller tripped over her words a bit, which clearly bothered James. He loudly snored and waved his hands in the air. "Let's get to the point, darling!" he urged. "Let's get to the point."
Andy dropped the call and intervened. "Ohhhhh, sweetie," he said sarcastically to his guest. James replied, "What's the question, though?"
"You're trash-talking in interviews, but you're being sweet in person," Andy explained.
"I've gotta do what I can right now to get to Mexico at this point," James replied as he crossed one leg over the other. "Play the game, or don't play at all. Don't come to L.A. if you don't wanna play chess, babe."
"Are people in L.A. playing chess?" Andy asked.
"Yeah, everyone's playing chess," James barked back. "If you don't know chess..."
Andy's other guest, "Summer House" star Lindsay Hubbard, interrupted: "Do you know how to play chess?"
"I did! Look at me now, babe. Look at me now," James replied as he threw his hands in the air and stared confidently into the camera.
As Andy tried to pivot to a new question, James stuck his tongue out to the audience and let out an evil chuckle.
"When Lisa sees that you actually were able to behave yourself with Lala, do you think..." Andy tried to ask before James cut him off.
"She didn't believe me!" the former SUR employee shot back. "The boy that cried wolf! Honestly, I was so upset by that. And I was coming into TomTom for a different conversation."
James then went into -- and out of -- his best Lisa impression. "I was expecting Lisa to go, 'James, Lala effed up. She effed up.' But no!" he shouted. "'Ohhh, darling. Darling, it was you that caused the ruckus.' I was like, 'No, Lisa. No, it wasn't!'"
"But that's what they were expecting! They were expecting you to cause a ruckus," Lindsay said to her co-guest, who put his hand up in front of her and said, "Thank you, darling. Let me just finish. Let me finish."
"I expected -- I expected, right," James continued. "I was looking at myself, watching it back, and I was like, 'Yo, he is not telling the truth right now.' So it's all a mind game, guys. I didn't do anything at SUR, and if anyone that watched that episode, hopefully you believe me."
By this point, Andy knew what he had on his hands and decided to serve back what he had been dished. "We saw the footage, babe," he said to his guest, who instantly replied, "Well, what did I do? What did I do?!"
"You didn't do anything! We agree!" Andy said. James turned his sights to Lindsay and said, "What do you think happened?"
Lindsay agreed with Andy, then James started shouting again. "What do I say then?! What do you want from me?!" he screeched.
With a heavy sigh, Andy went back to the phones.
"My question is for James," the next caller said.
"Good luck!" Andy replied.
"This one will be easier," James promised.
"Vanderpump Rules" airs Mondays at 9 p.m. on Bravo.
