Vanderpump Rules Recap: Lala Accuses Sandoval of Grooming Raquel


Lala Kent called out all of Tom Sandoval’s dirty deeds concerning Raquel Leviss during a blowout fight on Vanderpump Rules. Let’s break it all down!

During Tuesday’s episode of Vanderpump Rules, Lala Kent went in on Tom Sandoval after he claimed that she was never “honest” or “real” about her life.

This comment was rich coming from Sandoval when at the time he was the one keeping a major secret about his life – aka his seven month affair with Vanderpump Rules co-star Raquel Leviss.

So, while on the group’s trip to Lake Tahoe, Lala hoped to get an apology from Sandoval for his hypocritical comment however the 33-year-old’s wish did not come true. Instead, Lala and Sandoval’s conversation went south fast and turned in a heated argument.

While taking Sandoval to task for his hypocritical behavior, Lala admitted why she actually felt bad to Raquel and now sympathyized with the 29-year-old former SURver.

Lala now realizes that Raquel was under Sandoval’s spell, noting how the 29-year-old said at the season 10 reunion that she would have “nobody” if she didn’t “fall in line with Sandoval.”

“You isolate. You groom. You lie,” Lala told Sandoval. “I do not want to know you. You are scary.”

Naturally, Sandoval got defensive and ripped into Lala for old rumors that she started dating her now ex-fiancé Randall Emmett while he was still married to his ex-wife, Ambyr Childers in 2017.

“I did lie about a seven-month relationship. Lala lied for a few years of a six-year relationship,” Sandoval told the Bravo cameras in his confessional interview. “We both lied. We are both liars. I think in this instance we both just call this a wash.”

Lala was shocked and insulted that Sandoval would use her past against her while refusing to apologize. She told the 40-year-old that he was “insane” and “terrifying.”

“It is all you have on me. You will not allow me to evolve. But yet this happened four months ago and I am allowing you to evolve,” she argued.

However, after Scheana Shay and Brock Davies intervened to calm the growing tension, the Schwartz and Sandy’s co-owner expressed regret for his lies and behavior.

“I don’t think I understood you properly,” Tom admitted.

“I am sorry. I don’t want to be this way around you. I really appreciate you. It means a lot to me,” he continued. “It changed a lot of what I think about you. It is a lot. I am still processing even these days. I am processing everything. It is a lot for everybody.”

Vanderpump Rules airs Tuesdays at 8 p.m. ET on Bravo.
