Vanderpump Rules star Lala Kent has been a rollercoaster of emotions this season. One minute she’s smiling and performing her music. And the next minute she’s unleashed her inner rage onto Billie Lee, Raquel Leviss and James Kennedy. Where’s Lisa Rinna’s chill pill bag when you need it?
Some Pump Rules cast members have had a ring side seat to Lala’s outbursts. Such as Brittany Cartwright who was there to calm her down during Billie’s brunch event at SUR. Others like Scheana Marie, haven’t seen the magnitude of the outbursts until now. And of course, Scheana has some thoughts on the matter.
Scheana sat down for an interview with TooFab and discussed Lala’s behavior this season. She admitted at the time she only saw “bits and pieces” of Lala’s outbursts. She said, “Seeing it all back, I was like, Whoa, I missed a lot.” That’s putting it mildly.
She continued, “But you know, I haven’t lost a parent…I think everyone grieves in different ways. You can say she didn’t handle herself professionally, but I don’t know how I would’ve acted in that situation.” Scheana is being way too kind here. She knows that losing someone doesn’t give you a free pass to have constant temper tantrums.
Scheana also shared her thoughts as to why Lisa Vanderpump didn’t fire Lala for her behavior like she did with James and Kristen Doute. She said, “I think in general, anyone doing that would be fired, but Lisa and Lala both lost someone so close to them at the same time, so I think she just had a little more compassion for her at the time.” I don’t agree. Lala lied to Lisa’s face about her behavior so Lisa didn’t have the full story to take action.
Regarding Lala’s panic attack during the cast trip to Mexico, Scheana stated, “In Mexico, she had like a full-on panic/anxiety attack [on the bus]. I think that was triggered by alcohol because she hadn’t been drinking, and then she did a total 180. I think that was a moment where she kind of realized, ‘Okay, this is a problem.”
Scheana said about Lala’s admission that she is an alcoholic, “I’m happy that she’s getting the help she feels she needs. She seems to be in a good place, but I never thought she was an alcoholic.”
If Scheana stopped taking selfies for a second she might notice that almost the entire cast has a drinking problem! But, as we know, Scheana isn’t the best at noticing when people need help. Just ask her ex Mike Shay.
TELL US – DO YOU THINK THAT SCHEANA IS MAKING EXCUSES FOR LALA’S BEHAVIOR? DO YOU AGREE THAT LISA DIDN’T FIRE LALA BECAUSE SHE RECENTLY LOST A FAMILY MEMBER AS WELL? WHAT DO YOU THINK OF SCHEANA ADMITTING THAT SHE DIDN’T THINK LALA WAS AN ALCOHOLIC?
