Who is James Kennedy’s dad Andros Georgiou? Fans slam father-son duo’s conversation on “binge-drinking” in Vanderpump Rules episode 8

Vanderpump Rules season 10 episode 8 aired on Wednesday, featuring James Kennedy meeting his father Andros Georgiou. The father-son duo talked about the reality TV star’s ex-flame Raquel Leviss, current girlfriend Ally Lewber, and his drinking issues. Andros initially praised James for the time when he quit alcohol but then glorified “binge drinking.”

Fans were not happy with James’ dad encouraging a form of alcoholism. They even claimed that Andros might have been drunk in the episode.
