No one believed in Lala Kent from Vanderpump Rules. The Bravo star is one of the most controversial figures on the reality series and used to have the whole cast against her. Things changed in the last couple of years when Kent started to sober up and met her fiancé Randall Emmett.
Kent was able to turn around and fortify her friendships with the Vanderpump Rules cast. She also became more focused on building a career in acting and recently surprised everyone.
The reality show star was seen at the SAG Awards 2020 sitting close to Hollywood legend Meryl Streep. It doesn’t get more A-List than Streep and Kent are sitting in her vicinity.
It didn’t take long for fans to react to Kent’s appearance with Hollywood royalty.
“Seat filler,” a fan wrote.
“Kathryn Dennis should take lessons on how to effectively dig for gold,” a viewer added.
“BJs for PJs should be underestimated, it seems,” a Twitter user said.
“Randall is a producer on The Irishman,” another fan commented.
Lala Kent and 50 Cent feud
Late last year Kent and 50 Cent were embroiled in a feud where the latter accused the former of being addicted to drug substances. Kent took the controversy head-on and opened up about her process of getting sober and how she dealt with cyberbullying.
“My sobriety is something I’m proud of and work on every day,” she wrote on Instagram. “I’ve never done cocaine nor were any other substances, other than alcohol, involved in my decision to get sober.”
“I pride myself on being open and honest about everything in my life, hopefully inspiring others and letting them know they are not alone,” she added.
Kent said that she was able to get through the difficult process because she had a strong support system. She acknowledged that not everyone is lucky enough to be surrounded by people that help them.
“The past couple of days I’ve been slammed, to say the very least. People have asked me how I’m maintaining keeping my head up. To me it’s simple — I know real life from the [illusion] of social media,” she continued.
The moment where Kent’s life completely changed was when she found out her dad had died.
“I know what it feels like to have your world crumble. Getting a phone call from your brother saying your dad has passed away… that is Earth-shattering. Being called names and being falsely accused of things, that is far from Earth-shattering,” Kent mentioned.
The Vanderpump Rules star shared her feelings in an effort to encourage other victims of cyberbullying to stay strong and look for help.
“My mindset is something I’m grateful for. However, I can’t help but think about how many people are taking their own lives, daily, due to cyberbullying. It is imperative that I tell you, you are not by yourself. I see you. I stand by you. I’m on your team. You are loved and make a difference in this world,” she concluded.
Vanderpump Rules airs Tuesday nights at 9 p.m. ET on Bravo.
