Stassi Schroeder is totally fed up with James Kennedy — and it's quite comical for Vanderpump Rules' fans

Stassi Schroeder has no patience for Vanderpump Rules costar James Kennedy.

Schroeder didn't hold back from trashing Kennedy during a recent podcast appearance on Jackie Schimmel's The Bitch Bible.

Schroeder said, "Do you know who else I can't f***ing stand? DJ James Kennedy... I had worked with him a few times and been around him. And then I watched this season, and I felt personally victimized."

She went on, "I feel like I black out during his scenes because I just get so upset."

She was especially critical of his is-it-real-or-not relationship with fellow castmate Kristen Doute, and the way he takes his DJ career more seriously than her on the show. "You just press play on a playlist," she joked.

Kennedy, who's been the subject of speculation that he was dating Doute for more airtime, has become fans' love-to-hate castmate this season. During a taping of Watch What Happens Live, Doute herself agreed that, " A million percent I think James used me to get on the show."

Don't worry, she still threw a little classic Vanderpump Rules shade: "I wonder if she's on medication... whatever she's on, I want some."
