What Lala Kent said about the first time she met Randall Emmett

Kent met Emmett before starring in his film The Row, which he produced. She talked about their first meeting with her Vanderpump Rules co-star Stassi Schroeder.

“He came in to eat at Sur — they were having a meeting about The Row,” Kent said about the 2018 film she would later be cast in. “Rand saw me and sent his assistant up to ask me if I was an actress. I told him to go to my Instagram account.”

Kent, at the time, posted many body-baring pictures on her social media which clearly impressed the producer. He contacted her soon after their first encounter.

“The next day, I get a phone call that says, ‘You have an audition,'” she recalled. “I had auditioned for [The Row] and we went out, me and him, and two of my friends. I let him hit it the first night and we were inseparable.”

Kent then infamously told Schroeder that Emmett gifted her a Range Rover the day after they spent their first night together.

‘Vanderpump Rules’: Lala Kent Reveals Her Biggest Regret About the Show

Kent and Emmett have been through a lot as seen on Vanderpump Rules. The pair, who were secretly together for some time, came out as a couple officially on the show in season 8. Emmett fit right in with the other cast members on the show once Kent introduced him to the VPR world on-camera.

But before Emmett became a regular on the show, Kent “decided to take a break” from him after he threatened to take her Gucci slides and she turned to Brittany Cartwright and Katie Maloney-Schwartz for comfort. Kent and Emmett eventually got back together.

The pair had previously been a frequently-critiqued couple. However, they later became a stable force on the show once people could see them interact together on-screen. Their status as a calm and collected couple was further solidified in season 8. This was most apparent to viewers during the drama surrounding Jax Taylor and Cartwright‘s wedding.

It remains to be seen what the status of Vanderpump Rules is after many cast-mates were fired. However, Kent and Emmett continue to appear a strong and together couple, even during the year-long break from the show.
