Oh no he didn’t!
Lala Kent is clapping back after Tom Sandoval said she wasn’t a good friend to Ariana Madix.
During an interview with Entertainment Tonight, Tom said Lala is not a “safe space” for Ariana to openly talk about her feelings.
“It’s frustrating to see somebody like Lala, who’s like one second totally OK with people saying mean nasty things about Ariana that are completely not true and talking negatively about her and then sort of getting emotional and saying like, ‘This is a safe place,’” Tom explained. “It’s like, girl you are not — you are apparently not a safe place.”
Meanwhile, Lala didn’t appreciate Tom’s comments about her and addressed them on Instagram Live.
“While I was losing my mind, needing someone like Ariana, who had lost a parent before, I needed someone to defend me,” Lala said. “Instead, behind my back, she was telling me to toughen the f—k up. Does that sound like a safe space to you? I don’t think so!”
Lala went on to say that the “whole cast” of VPR struggles with anxiety.
“And we’ve all spoken about it. And we all sit here and offer like a hand, a heart, an ear to listen to, and [Tom] want[s] to say we’re not a ‘safe place,’” Lala explained. “But, you’re the one when my dad died, telling me to ‘toughen the f—k up.’ I think you’re feeling unsafe in your own skin and you’re projecting it onto me. I’ll be damned if someone doesn’t feel safe around me.”
She continued: “I don’t want to be struggling, drowning, for you to, like, wake the f—k up to see if I’m good. So, there’s my spill on Tom and Ariana. … I am a f—king safe place. I’m a good ass friend.”
Not surprisingly, Lala got very emotional during the IG Live when talking about her father’s passing which happened in April 2018. Lala is set to marry her longtime long Randall Emmett next month. She also revealed that her brother will be walking her down the aisle on her wedding day.
She wrapped: “To read it, Tom Sandoval, ‘It just really hurt me you know, to see her talking bad.’ How about this? Toughen the f—k up. I’m leavin’ it at that, y’all.”
Vanderpump Rules airs on Tuesdays at 9/8c on Bravo.
