No, I’m not talking about her one-time hookup with James Kennedy many seasons ago. Lala actually hooked up with one of her female costars, who was in a relationship. This was not teased in the Vanderpump Rules Season 7 trailer, but it will be a part of the season.
The relationship dynamic between Lala Kent and James Kennedy is very complicated. They were best friends, they’ve hooked up, and now they’re enemies. Lala wants nothing to do with the self-proclaimed White Kanye these days.
After James criticized her relationship with Randall Emmett and made fun of his personal appearance, Lala said she was done with him. They argued “about pasta.” After that, they made up, but it was only temporary. James offended Lala for the last time when they were at Coachella. He told Randall, “We all know each other inside and out if you know what I mean.” Lala was actually done after that. So is there any hope for their friendship? It sure doesn’t seem like it.
This season of Vanderpump Rules is opening on some strange notes, like the freestyle rappings of James Kennedy, and the scent of death and sadness mixed with the sticky spills of rose, goat cheese, and Jax Taylor‘s attempts to impersonate how he thinks a decent man should behave (tampon shopping!)
Immediately it becomes apparent that this will be another season of everyone villainzing James while pretending Jax is a new man as they plan his wedding to Brittany Cartwright. Forgiving Jax and hating James are literally the only subjects this show has anymore. And James, like the little whack-a-mole he is, will come back for hit after hit, cause he’s the White Kanye Baby and hits is what they do!
Far less frivolous are Lisa Vanderpump and Lala Kent dealing with painful losses in their lives. Lala’s father passed away from a stroke 2 months earlier, and she has inherited his mantra to be kind. Even to sketchy people. (Lest their names be James.) Lisa is mourning the loss of her brother, her only sibling, who committed suicide 5 weeks before filming started. Wow – that’s so devastating.
It’s safe to assume that pretty much anyone reading this is thankful for reality television. This gratitude is probably applicable to reality TV Instagram posts as well. A lot of your favorite reality TV stars shared photos from their Thanksgiving celebrations and charity work.
Vanderpump Rules cast member Lala Kent and her man Randall Emmett gave out turkeys to those in need. New Jersey Housewives Teresa Giudice and Dolores Catania gave out turkeys in their local community as well. Real Housewives of Atlanta cast member Marlo Hampton volunteered at the Women’s Community Kitchen.
There are some reality TV Thanksgiving gatherings that I wish were filmed. First and foremost, Vanderpump Rules stars Jax Taylor, Stassi Schroeder, Brittany Cartwright, and Stassi’s man Beau Clark all spent Thanksgiving together. Stassi even joked on Instagram, “Why weren’t the cameras here?” Seriously though. That is a great question. Exes hanging out and actually being friends will forever fascinate me.
Speaking of exes, JWOWW and her ex Roger Mathews spent time with family on Thanksgiving. What is going on with the two of them? Are they just keeping it cordial for the sake of the kids? Are they repairing their romantic relationship? Either way, there were no smiles in the Instagram posts.
Southern Charm stars Kathryn Dennis shared a photo on Thanksgiving with her costar Austen Kroll. Who knew these two were such close friends? Southern Charm matriarch Patricia Altschul shared a picture from her Thanksgiving girls night out. Meanwhile Shep Rose spent some quality time with his mom and dad.

Where in the world is Lisa Vanderpump? Last night was the 3rd Annual Vanderpump Dog Foundation Gala and it was a Bravolebrity magnet, except that Lisa was MIA again (at least on the red carpet)! (see update below)
Nearly all of Lisa’s Vanderpump Rules cast was there to celebrate: Kristen Doute and Brian Carter, Brittany Cartwright and Jax Taylor, Scheana Marie, Stassi Schroeder and Beau Clark, Katie Maloney and Tom Schwartz, Lala Kent and Randall Emmett and more! But no LVP from what we see in the agency pics.
Also there to take part in the event: Shahs of Sunset star MJ Javid and her husband Tommy Feight, former RHOC star Gretchen Rossi, former Flipping Out star Jenni Pulos. The Real Housewives of Dallas stars LeeAnne Locken and Kameron Westcott made the trek to Hollywood to support the cause. Even Real Housewives of New Jersey star Melissa Gorga turned up.
Tonight the reality stars stormed the red carpet for E!’s People’s Choice Awards in Santa Monica. The Vanderpump Rules cast turned out, a few of the Jersey Shore gang, a couple of Kardashians and more!
Every cast member (minus Lisa Vanderpump) from Vanderpump Rules attended the awards together, as they were all nominated together for Reality Show of 2018. Stassi Schroeder, Lala Kent, Katie Maloney, Tom Schwartz, Tom Sandoval, Ariana Madix, Kristen Doute, Jax Taylor (dapper in a tux!), Brittany Cartwright, Scheana Marie, and James Kennedy all brought their A-Games when it came to the red carpet fashion. Check out the gallery below and tell us who wins the best dressed award.
Also attending: Kris Jenner (what is up with the sunglasses indoors?), Khloe and Kim Kardashian. Keeping up With the Kardashians won the People’s Choice Award for “Reality Show of 2018”, beating out Vanderpump Rules and Jersey Shore.
The Vanderpump Rules cast used to shade Lala Kent for travelling in her boyfriend Randall Emmett’s private jet. Now that Lala is cool with everyone on the show, they too get those same travel perks here and there. Jax Taylor, Brittany Cartwright, Katie Maloney, Tom Schwartz, Stassi Schroeder, and Stassi’s boyfriend Beau Clark all joined Lala and Randall in Cabo for engagement celebrations- or at least that’s what was mentioned in the Instagram caption. Were they celebrating Lala and Randall’s engagement? Or were they there in honor of Jax and Brittany’s engagement? Or maybe it’s just a combination of both. Either way, they had an enviable vacation, or at least that’s what it seems like via the Instagram posts.
Without ever appearing on Vanderpump Rules, Lala Kent’s man Randall Emmett became instantly infamous for his private jet. He takes Lala and even some of her costars on trips around the country (and the world) fairly often.
Where did they last jet off to? Randall and Lala joined model Olivia Culpo in Miami, Florida to support Danny Amendola the Dolphins. Just very casually. Not only did they hang with Olivia, but they also met one of the most famous Miami Dolphins of all time: Dan Marino.
