Kennedy's drinking problem has often been a talking point on the show, an issue that both Lisa Vanderpump and his girlfriend Raquel Leviss are worried about. Last season saw him struggle with his alcoholism which led to Raquel giving him an ultimatum to sort out his act or else she'd leave him for good.
