Lala Kent tearfully opens up about her split from former fiance Randall Emmett in the upcoming Vanderpump Rules Season 9 reunion. She admits that she was “disgusted” when she first heard about the cheating rumors. In October 2021, the Give Them Lala founder called it quits when Randall was caught with two mystery women in Nashville.
She made a smooth exit. Lala left with their 10-month-old daughter, Ocean. Two months later, she made a virtual appearance during the taping of the Season 9 reunion, which airs next week. While she doesn’t have regrets about becoming a first-time mom, she slammed Randall for making her “feel safe enough to bring a child into the world.”
Lala Kent cries over Randall Emmett split
Lala Kent was emotional when she opened up about their split on the Season 9 reunion of Pump Rules. On Tuesday, January 18, Bravo dropped the teaser that shows her in tears. She slams the missing producer for making her think he was committed. The former couple was engaged for three years.
“The fact that this man… he made me feel safe enough to bring a child into the world, I feel disgusted,” Lala Kent tells her co-stars.
The 31-year-old also opened up about the cheating rumors. She admitted that Randall was caught “creeping around on me.” Lala claims that she was blindsided. In the trailer, Brock Davies claims that she was “too busy flying around in private jets and hanging around Machine Gun Kelly” to notice. In fact, most of Lala’s co-stars admitted that they weren’t shocked by his alleged cheating.
Scheana Shay shaded Lala for calling Randall a “standup-man” compared to her fiance, who had drama with her earlier this season. Meanwhile, co-star James Kennedy says he heard “rumors” about Randall’s hook-ups. Lala Kent first spoke out about her man during Season 5 of Vanderpump Rules. However, his identity was kept under wraps until 2018 when they went public with their relationship.
Lisa Vanderpump throws major shade
While most of her VPR co-stars mocked her relationship, Lisa Vanderpump threw the most shade. She offered her input on Lala Kent and Randall Emmett’s relationship with the following, “Sometimes the way you get them is the way you lose them.” Around the time that Lala first dated Randall, he was still married to actress Ambyr Childers.
The former couple was married from 2009 to 2017. He proposed to Lala in September 2018 just one year after his divorce was finalized. In an interview on Watch What Happens Live, Lala Kent admitted that Randall’s ex-wife was the “best thing that ever happened” to him.
She feels that Randall “messed up” by leaving her. Lala admits that the beginning of their relationship was “bumpy.” Yet, she still has “compassion” for Randall’s ex-wife.
“I think she is a great woman and a great mom,” Lala Kent said. “I will be honest, I think she is the best thing that ever happened to that guy.”
As TV Shows Ace previously reported, Lala reflected on their “gross” and “messy” relationship. She feels it was “built on nothing but lies.” Lala feels that Ambyr was the “good one” that he lost. Looking back, Lala claims that Randall has been cheating on her for “quite some time” before she ended their relationship.
