The Oct. 27 episode made Vanderpump Rules fans very confused. Lala started by saying there was a technical glitch. She began: “Hello, gorgeous. Welcome to the ‘Give Them Lala’ podcast,” she said in a recording she apparently did by herself. “We had an intro, and there was some technical difficulties, and once we sent them over to our producer, the file was nowhere to be heard. So here’s the alternative. I’m literally sitting in [daughter] Ocean’s nursery giving you guys this intro.”
Typically, Lala mentions Randall in the intro. But this time there was no mention of him at all. In past episodes he’s also chimed in. Not this time!
Randall Emmett’s silence follows speculation that he cheated on Lala recently while traveling. And last week she was spotted looking at a new apartment in Santa Monica, Calif. with her 7-month-old daughter, according to Page Six. That was the same day she celebrated three years of being sober.
The Vanderpump Rules star’s apparent move — and her continued sobriety — come amid all-but confirmed rumors of her split from Hollywood producer Randall Emmett, to whom she had been engaged for three years.
Lala was reportedly seen leaving the apartment complex with her infant daughter, Ocean, and her mother after spending “about 15 minutes” inside.
According to ApartmentRatings.com, one bedrooms units at the building rent between $2,859 to $4,403 a month, though studio units are also available at a paltry $650 per month — almost unheard of in southern California.
While another real estate site boasts that the complex is “footsteps from everything you love about Santa Monica,” including “the beach, amazing restaurants, fashionable boutiques, top nightclubs, abundant art and eclectic culture,” the “luxury apartment” building is certainly less roomy than the multimillion-dollar home that Lala Kent lived in with Randall Emmett.
Lala Kent Celebrates 3 Years Sober
“Today marks 3 years of sobriety. I can’t believe it,” Lala Kent wrote on Instagram the very same day. “It is one day at a time, but I will say, I have never felt so strong in my sobriety. It’s the proudest thing I have ever done, aside from becoming a mother.”
Lala also revealed that she quit drinking in 2018 after the death of her father — a loss that affected her deeply.
“The world seems to be spinning much slower. I’ve never felt so lost. I’ve never felt so sad. My world has crumbled,” she wrote in an Instagram post at the time.
Lala Kent celebrated with friends and Vanderpump Rules co-stars Brittany Cartwright and Stassi Schroeder following a sold-out signing of her debut book — Give Them Lala, a collection of essays detailing her rise to fame and struggles with sobriety.
“I love you Schroeder. I sold out at Barnes & Noble!” Lala was seen saying in a video posted by Stassi, who added: “She sold the f— out!”
Did Randall Cheat on Lala Kent?
Lala’s breakup with fiance Randall — which had been rumored for some time before an anonymous source confirmed the split to PageSix — came amid rumors that the 50-year-old Hollywood producer cheated on her.
No concrete evidence of Randall’s infidelity has surfaced, but an Instagram user said she spotted him in Nashville, Tenn. with “two blonde women,” Breaking Daily News reported.
The user also posted a photo that she said depicted Randall with the two unknown women.
Neither Lala nor Randall has commented on the cheating rumors.
