Randall Emmett is NOT happy about the upcoming Hulu documentary: “The Randall Emmett Scandal: Love, Loathing, and Vanderpump.”
The Hollywood movie producer said:
“Almost one year ago, the Los Angeles Times wrote a highly biased and factually inaccurate hit piece on me. One of the writers, Amy Kaufman, seemed to have a personal vendetta against me, I believe due to her alleged friendship with my ex Lala Kent.”
“Among other things, the article contained fictitious and greatly exaggerated stories made up by a few former disgruntled employees who had been dismissed. Lala was also a participant in this fiasco, likely because I have been fighting for 50/50 joint legal custody of our child.”
Randall Emmett then revealed why he didn’t participate in the documentary, which was based on The Los Angeles Times article.
“I declined to participate because it very quickly became apparent to me the film was going to be as biased, if not more so, than the article on which it was based. It’s my understanding numerous people were contacted to participate in this documentary, and most declined.”
Randall Emmett claims that he was “told people were encouraged to speak negatively about me while the vast majority had only positive things to say,” adding that producers only used footage of “the ones who had very definite agendas” against him.
“It also appears to me that very little, if any, fact-checking took place, with a complete absence of any journalistic integrity whatsoever,” he adds.
The 52-year-old also alleges that the Hulu documentary is nothing more than “a regurgitation of the biased Los Angeles Times article” and “a cheap attempt to capitalize on the current ‘Vanderpump Rules’ fever.”
“My family, the people with whom I work, and those who matter in my life all know the truth and my accomplishments; I have nothing to prove,” he concludes.
However, The Los Angeles Times stands by its investigation into Randall Emmett, telling Page Six in a statement:
“The Los Angeles Times stands behind its reporting on Randall Emmett. Two veteran entertainment journalists, Amy Kaufman and Meg James, reviewed hundreds of court filings and Emmett’s internal company records and interviewed three dozen former associates in the course of an investigation that published last year.
“If Randall Emmett would like to dispute any of the facts in our reporting or the information that Kaufman and James share in the documentary, we welcome him to do so.”
Vanderpump Rules airs on Wednesdays at 9 pm on Bravo.
