One of the best things that has come out of quarantine is the throwback marathons on Bravo. There’s something so nostalgic about watching our beloved Bravo stars before they had stylists and plastic surgery. Ah, simpler times. It’s fun to see where the stars we know today started from.
And apparently, I’m not the only one who appreciates the old school rawness of seasons past. Vanderpump Rules star Lala Kent has been catching up on previous seasons of VPR while stuck at home with her fiancé Randall Emmett. Lala has come a long way since her hostess days at Sur. But her biggest takeaway? Her new face.
Watching Vanderpump Rules can sometimes be cringe inducing. Seeing people in their 30’s and 40’s (birthday boy Jax Taylor!) acting like they are still in college makes you feel a little embarrassed for them. Sometimes, however, it takes a younger–and less jaded person–to add levity to situations. Case in point–Raquel Leviss. This season, we saw Raquel stand up to boyfriend James Kennedy regarding his problem with alcohol and his verbally abusive behavior towards her.
Last week, Raquel took on shameless Lala Kent–and surprise, surprise, emerged the victor in their dust up. Lala went after Raquel at Katie Maloney’s party–and Raquel didn’t back down. In fact, in what I consider one of the all- time great reality show moments, after a dramatic Lala said she felt like bashing her head into a table, a calm and composed Raquel told her simply, “Please do.” Reality gold! So, what do Raquel and Lala think about their confrontation?
Now that the royal wedding season is officially over on Vanderpump Rules, we can get back to what the cast does best–gossip, drink and throw shade at fellow co-stars. Jax Taylor and Brittany Cartwright’s drawn-out Ver-Sails extravaganza made me want to decline any future wedding RSVP’s.
Love is still in the air on Vanderpump Rules with the romantic cemetery proposal of Stassi Schroeder and Beau Clark later in the season. At least they didn’t have to worry about overzealous fans interrupting their romantic moment! Long-time engaged couple Lala Kent and Randall Emmett had originally planned their wedding for next month, but world events have changed that plan. The coronavirus has upended people’s lives and Lala and Randall are no exception.
Vanderpump Rules star Lala Kent has experienced a lot of big life changes recently. In October of 2019, Lala announced that she had been sober for one year. Being sober and hanging with her alcohol-drenched Pump Rules co-stars must be extraordinarily difficult. Congrats, Lala!
In April, an entertaining social media feud erupted between Lala, her man Randall Emmett, and Curtis James Jackson III, also known as 50 Cent. Allegedly Randall, who produces projects involving the rap star, owed 50 Cent $ 1 million dollars. 50 Cent brutally dissed Lala, and in the mayhem, Randall accidentally called 50 Cent “Fofty.” The hilarious moniker stuck for a while. Eventually, the loan was repaid.
Hmmm, let me think for a second. Where have I seen a $40k figure involving both Erika Jayne and her husband, Tom Girardi? I’m sure it will come to me any moment. While I am deep in thought, the Real Housewives of Beverly Hills: Pasadena Edition diva is in the news. No, she isn’t regaling the wonders of Dorit Kemsley’s new home rental or buying gifts for Teddi Mellencamp Arroyave’s impending
storyline baby girl. The woman who communicates through track suits is back in the media thanks to her hubby.
Let’s not continue to rehash the mounting legal bills of our various cast members. Why, that would be uncouth and surely Camille Grammer is already on the case. Well, let’s do it just this once regarding Tom. No need to bother with Dorit and PK Kemsley’s run from the IRS or Mauricio Umansky’s alleged shady house flip that profited him around $70 million. Tom has been dealing with his own financial disputes. Along with a $16 million case over perceived misused funds, in September, Tom was thrown another case. His law firm is being sued by a consulting company for $40,000. Tom is now responding to the case and basically saying, “I don’t know her” to the claim.
Wow Lauren, did things get too hot? It looks like Vanderpump Rules star, Lala Kent is finally in a good mood. Why else would she send words of glad tidings towards the man who essentially gave us all petty goals? Yes, Lala is talking about 50 Cent, again.
Someone must have gotten in trouble! Lala has given us songs. Lala has given us face. And Lala given us way too many details. It was those details that sparked a major row between the former (?) SUR hostess and Fofty. Fiancé Randall Emmett was dragged into it as well. He ultimately wound up in the hospital for
being a scaredy cat chest pains. The incident was resolved after Randall paid an outstanding debt to Fofty. All was well in the land until Lala started talking smack about Fofty to Andy Cohen on Watch What Happens Live. Now in an effort to keep Lala quiet put the whole thing to bed, Lala and Her Chins Man have some new words for the entrepreneur.
I’m not gonna lie, the 50 Cent vs. Lala Kent and Randall Emmett feud was very entertaining. At first. Now, I’m just over it. When 50 Cent called out Randall for a $1 million dollar debt and came for Lala’s gold digging antics I set post alerts on Instagram just to keep up. When Randall was so nervous that he was allegedly hospitalized for some health concerns and referred to the rapper as “Fofty” it was nothing short of iconic. 50 even had t-shirts made with screenshots from the texts.
It all came to a close when Randall got 50 the cash
and found someone else to borrow money from to charter private jets for Lala. It was all good. 50 had no interest in rekindling a friendship with Randall, but he stopped his internet attack.
That was until Lala opened her mouth during a recent Watch What Happens Live appearance. She claimed that she “dinged” 50’s ego and that she had receipts, which she never showed or elaborated on. Word got back to 50 and he went in on Lala’s sobriety and Randall’s
quadruple double chin in some Instagram posts. Lala started this, but she did not know what she got herself into. Clearly. Now, Randall “My Man” Emmett is begging 50 Cent to end the war.
Gather ’round everybody, we have words of wisdom to share! I doubt anyone would accuse the Vanderpump Rules cast of being Rhodes Scholars. However, we’re not watching for educational purposes. No one is going to walk away from an episode with a profound new outlook on life. Unless a viewer abstains from alcohol based on the unfortunate life choices of Kristen Doute.
Speaking of unfortunate life choices, Lala Kent recently made one when she reignited a feud with multi-talented entertainer, and my boyfriend, 50 Cent. After 50 virtually spanked Lala on social media for celebrating her status as a
sugar baby gift recipient, Lala clapped back. Unfortunately for Lala and her betrothed, Randall Emmett, what followed was a harsh lesson in humiliation from Professor Cent. Now Lala’s cast members share their opinion on the latest events that have unfolded since Lala’s resurrection of a dead argument.
