Also at the same event was the Vanderpump Rules star's ex-fiancée, Raquel Leviss.

A source tells PEOPLE Leviss is also moving on with her life — but hasn't started dating, yet.

"Raquel's doing very well. She's focused on getting her life in order. She's doing awesome," says the source. "The Vanderpump Rules group has become closer with Raquel since the split with James. Now she's becoming true friends. She's not dating anyone right now. It's fun, because now everybody is single."

Kennedy and Leviss, 27, were engaged in May 2021 after five years of dating. They announced their split in December. Leviss opened up about her decision to end the relationship in a conversation on costar Scheana Shay's Scheananigans podcast.

"It was getting to the point where my family and him were not meshing well and the future of Thanksgivings and Christmases and holidays was looking like it was going to be either James or my family," Leviss said at the time. "Especially like if we had a baby, James would make my parents out as like the not-good grandparents and kind of put that in [our kids'] heads. Just foreseeing this future and what it was all coming down to and I was like, 'I don't want that.' "

During the Vanderpump Rules reunion special in January, during which they announced their split to the cast, Kennedy and Leviss shared more about why their relationship ended.

"We had a conversation a couple of months ago and I asked her if I'm your soulmate," Kennedy said emotionally. "She said like, 'Do you think I'm your soulmate?' It was almost like, the first time I felt like we weren't destined in the galaxy. It wasn't a clear answer. It wasn't like, 'Absolutely, you're my soulmate.' That's how it should be, I feel like, right? At least that's what I want."
