‘Vanderpump Rules’ Lala Kent Becomes Emotional Over Postponed Wedding
Kent and fiancé Randall Emmett talked about the dream wedding they had to postpone due to the coronavirus. The couple talked about the postponement on their podcast Give them Lala … With Randall, People recounts.
The couple moved their April wedding to July, but amid the pandemic stress, Kent couldn’t take it anymore. “I’m going through my planner and I put my wedding day on April 18 in pen because I didn’t think I would need to erase it at any point,” she said as she started to cry.
The couple understands this isn’t the end of the world
Despite her tears, Emmett and Kent acknowledged that a postponed wedding wasn’t the worst thing occurring during a pandemic. But Emmett added, “It’s okay babe,” he said to Kent. “It’s okay to be sad. I don’t think people realize how devastating it is for someone to have a wedding [canceled].”
“I’ve watched you cry and you’ve seen me upset,” he told her. “We had a full-out cryfest a week ago when we first made the decisions [to postpone].” Adding, “I don’t think anyone is prepared for this.”
Despite breaking down, Kent said the day she married Emmett will be a special day. “No matter what day we choose, it’s still going to be [special],” she said. Emmett added, “I love you and I know it’s sad. We love each other and we’re here and we’re safe. At the end of the day, a lot of people would pick this spot.”

Stassi Schroeder from Vanderpump Rules also faces uncertainty when it comes to her nuptials. She recently tweeted, “So planning a wedding that may be nonexistent is fun. Def recommend.” She recently told She told TV Insider the couple planned to move forward with planning, but only tentatively. “That is the plan,” she shared. “Obviously with coronavirus and everything that’s happening, we’re taking it very seriously. We’ve had a lot of discussions with [each other], with our wedding planners, with family and friends. The only thing we can do right now is take it day by day and see how things develop.”
Schroeder added, “Life happens, so we’ve mentally and emotionally prepared ourselves to cancel the wedding if it needs to happen, and we get married, I don’t know, in a frickin’ courthouse in L.A., then it is what it is. Right now all we can do is keep planning for the wedding we hope we’re going to have.”
Tinsley Mortimer from The Real Housewives of New York City is another bride-to-be having to put her wedding planning on hold. “We started to talk about some plans,” she said about fiancé Scott Kluth. “And we know we want to do it small, but then even in January all the stuff, this is when it [was] starting to happen in China with Wuhan and stuff. And we had considered doing something actually in Japan. [That] was kind of one of our first plans.”
“So we started to shift off of that plan and then we were talking about other things,” she said. “And now it’s just difficult. It’s really difficult to try to plan anything, even a couple weeks from now,” she said. “You know what I mean?”
