Vanderpump Rules alum Lala Kent broke up with her longtime fiancé, Hollywood producer Randell Emmett, in late October after pictures surfaced online of him supposedly with other women. Kent has been pretty vocal that the split has been a major struggle for her, especially going into the holiday season as the single mom to their 8-month-old daughter Ocean. Apparently, too, her co-stars didn’t lend much sympathy to her situation either during or after filming the Vanderpump Rules reunion special. Amidst all the drama, Kent is apparently questioning her future on the show.

On her newly rebranded, post-breakup Give Them Lala podcast, Lala Kent shared that the Vanderpump Rules reunion recently wrapped filming, and that it didn’t go so well. The 31-year-old said that the cast laid the hammer down on her for things she’s said about her co-stars' relationships in Season 9 and more “things from 5 years ago.” The aggression was so harsh, apparently, that she might not come back for Season 10. She revealed:

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 Vanderpump Rules], 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?' And who knows, there may not even be another season that comes out of this. Let’s just say tomorrow they call and they 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.

Lala Kent continued, saying that she felt “alone and isolated” at the reunion and more so after filming was over. She’s been shading her ex-Randall Emmett left and right on social media, but she hoped that her Vanderpump Rules castmates would’ve been checking up on her emotional state anyway. The Bravo star said:

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…The fact that my life has been turned upside down – and maybe they don’t know the ins and outs of it, but I was visibly upset on the reunion – and for not one of them except for my little Bambi to reach out and be like, ‘I just want to say I’m sorry for what you’re going through,’ was, like I said, eye-opening.

Raquel Leviss and James Kennedy just recently called off their own seven-month-long engagement, and it’s purportedly because Leviss wanted to go in a different direction. Their co-star Lala Kent disclosed that she reached out to them amidst their split, and that Leviss reciprocating contact with her about Randall Emmett “meant everything.” It is quite surprising that Leviss was the only one sympathetic to Kent, especially considering how the two got into notorious arguments on the show in the past, with Leviss once even getting called a “Bambi-eyed bitch.”

Quite frankly, though, if Lala Kent quits, there won’t be much of a show left. She’s singlehandedly been carrying the lion’s share of the drama on Vanderpump Rules’ ninth season ever since several controversial stars were fired last year. But Kent isn’t too bothered about what her future could hold sans VR, saying she has “so many other things that are less boring to be doing.” Tune into the final episodes, to be followed by the aforementioned reunion, on Bravo on Tuesday nights at 9 p.m. EST.
