Lala Kent Slams Demi Lovato For “Offensive” Comments On Sobriety

Lala Kent knows how to ruffle some feathers. But maybe it’s not all her fault since she wasn’t exactly welcomed with open arms to Vanderpump Rules. The Witches of WeHo gang hated her instantly and Lala didn’t do herself any favors when she decided to go topless in Hawaii. How would she know Katie Maloney-Schwartz would blame Tom Schwartz’s wandering eye on her alone?

From that point on, it seems like Lala put up a shield, and anyone who attempts to penetrate that shield is met with total vitriol. That’s not say Lala isn’t entertaining. We have her to thank for James Kennedy’s famous “not about the pasta” freak out and for the phrase “bambi-eyed bitch.” For anyone wondering if motherhood has given Lala any pause in calling people out – it hasn’t!

Page Six reports that Lala, “slammed Demi Lovato’s ‘California sober’ lifestyle – in which they drink and smoke weed in moderation – as ‘extremely offensive’.” Apparently, Demi shared on CBS Sunday Morning that she was “California sober.” Lala, who is almost three years sober, isn’t having it.

On David Yontef’s Behind the Velvet Rope podcast this week, Lala commented on Demi’s definition of sober, saying, “I don’t like to judge, but I actually think that that’s super offensive.” Lala explained this position, saying, “there are people out there who work their ass off to never take themselves out of reality and to never place themselves in an altered state.”

The “California sober” idea is “not a real thing” to Lala. “I’ve been in rooms with men and women who have given up everything just to not pick up [drugs or alcohol]. You’re not sober if you’re drinking or you’re smoking weed, you are not sober,” Lala stated.

Lala has admittedly struggled with her own sobriety for years and “swears by the program of AA.” It’s obviously working for Lala, which is awesome. Demi, who has also battled addiction for years, expounded on comments made on CBS Sunday Morning, saying, “I really don’t feel comfortable explaining the parameters of my recovery to people because I don’t want anyone to look at my parameters of safety and think that’s what works for them, because it might not.”
