Another cast member of "Vanderpump Rules" might be on the way out.
On the Wednesday edition of the “Give Them Lala” podcast, Lala Kent discussed what happened during the VPR reunion in detail and hinted that she might not return to the reality program if Bravo renewed it for a tenth season.
“[If] tomorrow they call me and say, ‘We’ve been picked up,’ I would take a big pause because I don’t know if that’s the space for me anymore,” she remarked.
One of the reasons Kent is considering leaving is due of the recent Season 9 reunion shooting, which she says left her “feeling not much resolve. I left feeling a bit alone and isolated.”
“I’ve been on this show for six years, I’ve changed a lot as a person — no one can tell me otherwise. … So, when I think back on my time [on the show], I love it, it’s been the ultimate mirror for me, but after that reunion, I sat back and thought, ‘Is this the space for me anymore or do we need to do some soul searching?’”
Raquel Leviss, whose engagement to James Kennedy was just called off, was the only cast member to contact her after the recording to check in on her, according to the reality star. “I didn’t hear from one person on my cast except for Raquel [Leviss] to say, ‘Hope you’re doing OK.’”
“That was very telling for me. … I’m not saying that this group of my friends are bad people in any way. Just because I’m going through something doesn’t mean the world stops. … But I was visibly upset on the reunion, and for not one of them except for my little Bambi to reach out and say, ‘I just want to say I’m sorry for what you’re going through,’ was, like I said, eye-opening.”
Kent first appeared on the show in Season 4 in 2015, and she has been documenting her relationship with Emmett on television since then.
“Vanderpump Rules” airs Tuesdays at 9 p.m. ET on Bravo.
