During the first episode of Vanderpump Rules season 5, Lala Kent fat-shamed Katie Maloney, and it was revealed that before filming started Lala had been bashing her appearance to anyone that would listen.
Throughout season 4 Katie was very open about how she felt about Lala, and it was obvious that these two were not going to be friends. Once Stassi Schroeder was in the mix it became a full-on feud, which lead to Lala’s alienation from the VPR crew!
Lala shocked everyone when she actually showed up to the season 5 reunion, and apparently she and Katie actually made amends and are done trashing each other!
“I felt like we came to a common ground ’cause she’s also said some things that weren’t so kind about me as well and we kind of squashed it,” Lala told The Daily Dish about Katie. Noting that she, “absolutely” got closure from the VPR reunion.
Shockingly, Lala even admitted that Katie surprised her more than anyone else in the cast. “I always thought we would never be in the same room without wanting to bring our daggers out. So I would say that was the most shocking moment for me,” she recalled.
Then Lala got candid on the reunion, and although no one expected her to actually show up, she is really happy that she went.
“Going to the reunion was pretty amazing for me,” she confirmed. Adding, “I felt like I got a lot off of my chest. I didn’t say things that I would need to dig myself out of later. As cheesy as it sounds, it was kind of a beautiful thing because that show is rough [and] these people are rough. If you’re going to be on this show, you’d better have a set of balls on you. So to see everybody in a pretty vulnerable and zen state — I mean, obviously we get heated at moments — but overall it was freaking amazing,” Lala explained.
She even surprised herself that day, and Lala confessed that it felt good to leave with no regrets. “It was so weird that night I went home and I’m like, ‘This is so weird. I don’t have a pit in my stomach. I can go to bed and feel like my conscience is clear.’ It was pretty cool for me ’cause I haven’t had that in a while,” Lala wrapped.
On WWHL Monday night Lala said she’d be open to coming back to Vanderpump Rules, and making amends with the cast could be her way back in. I don’t necessarily think that would be a good idea, but you never know what producers have in mind!
Are you shocked Lala and Katie made amends? Are you surprised Lala showed up to the reunion? Do you think she will return to the show? Is that a good idea? Do you like Lala? Why is she trying to get back on good terms with the VPR cast?
