For years, Lala Kent solely referred to Randall Emmett as “my man.” They were dating in secret and the whole timeline of their marriage (i.e. his marriage to Ambyr Childers and the start of his relationship with Lala) was blurry.
That’s all about to change though. Randall makes his Vanderpump Rules debut on tonight’s new episode.
Randall and Lala dished on his decision to film this season during an interview with Entertainment Tonight. Lala shared, “I begged him first of all, like, ‘Please, people have to see our relationship is real life!'” Randall agreed, saying, “I should have done it a long time ago, probably.”
Randall continued, “For years, she asked and it just got to a point where the things being said about me weren’t that nice, and about our relationship, weren’t that nice, the way things were coming across and we were like, ‘OK, let’s try it out.’ Like a little dabble and, honestly, look — I wouldn’t see her all summer, you know, she’d … always be gone, so it was nice to hang out and spend time with her and do a little bit of this.”

Randall and Lala also reflect on her infamous “my man” phrase. Lala confessed, “I was so sick of calling him ‘my man,’ and then people started making fun of me for it. I was like, ‘You gotta take it up with my man, ’cause he’s the one that chooses to be nameless and faceless.'”
That time period was rough on Randall, who admitted, “I really don’t watch the show [much now] because they were mean to me for many years, but I support her.” He continued, “I am interested to see how [me on the show] plays out, but petrified at the same time. I am a fan and have always been. It’s surreal now because a lot of them have become my friends and are in my wedding party.” Now, I’m wondering if their wedding will be filmed for the show, after all.

Randall divulged, “I don’t think I’ll ever be comfortable in front of the camera, definitely comfortable behind the camera … [but] honestly, I’ve had a lot of fun. Doing something with your partner is a lot of fun.”
We shall see how things go tonight!
