Lala Kent is ready to take her reality TV career to the next level.
While the Give Them Lala Beauty founder enjoys her time on Vanderpump Rules, she’s ready to take her career to the next level by joining the Real Housewives franchise.
“I would love to do [The Real Housewives of Salt Lake City]. Take me back to my roots. I like [The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills]. But I just think the age [gap] is [a problem]. You have to think about, do you have things in common with these people? Just living in the same area is not like a [enough],” Lala revealed on the December 21 episode of Not Skinny But Not Fat podcast.
However, Lala would be open to joining RHOBH if Bravo brought former Beverly Hills Housewife Teddi Mellencamp back.
According to Lala, that move would be a “different story” because Teddi “has a young baby,” also so they would have more in common.
“If [Bravo] were to say to me, ‘We would like to transition you into this….’ Yes. Because I’m all about my future and what’s going to get me to the next level,” she explained.
Meanwhile, the Pump Rules star also admitted that her relationship with her ex-fiancé Randall Emmett was the “worst thing to ever happen” to me.
“I have to understand how the worst thing to ever happen or come into my life, how did they give me the best thing to ever happen in my life [Ocean]? It is such a mind f–k,” Lala said.
In October, Lala called off her engagement to Randall after he allegedly cheated on her during a trip to Nashville.
When asked if anyone warned her about Randall, Lala said, “I wish they f–king would have.”
“I wish that somebody would’ve come to me and said, ‘I’m getting DMs about your person.’ No one voiced any concern for me and my relationship,” she explained. “I would give everything to turn back the clock and have someone tell me something.”
She also addressed the photos of Randall with two women at a hotel in Nashville that surfaced on social media in October. The photos were the final straw in their rocky relationship and prompted Lala to leave Randall.
“I think my head was completely in the sand,” she admitted. “I think I ignored a lot of things that I probably shouldn’t have, but I think I ignored them because he’s good at what he does.”
She added, “I saw those pictures, and I just knew, ‘I’m going to do what I need to do to exit this relationship.’”
The former couple got engaged in September 2018 and were supposed to tie the knot in April 2020; however, their wedding was postponed to 2022 due to the COVID-19 pandemic.
Now, Lala is thankful she never married the movie producer.
“I thank God and my [late] dad daily that I never married him,” Lala confessed. “Just the thought of it sends me into a panic. If I would’ve gotten married, oh my God!”
Vanderpump Rules airs Tuesdays at 9 p.m. ET on Bravo.
