Lala Kent and her mystery man still haven’t gone public with their relationship, and according to the Vanderpump Rules star’s latest comments, her romance may remain under wraps for some time.
During an appearance at OK! Magazine’s Summer Kickoff party at the W Hollywood hotel days ago, Lala Kent offered an update on her relationship and confirmed that she and the man she was dating during Vanderpump Rules Season 5 are still together.
“We are very much in a relationship still,” Lala Kent revealed during an interview with Entertainment Tonight on May 22. “I look at him and I’m like, how am I this lucky to have someone who, not only deals with me, but loves me when I’m crazy, which is the majority of the time, you know?”
During Vanderpump Rules Season 5, Lala Kent was accused of dating a married man, and her silence about her boyfriend’s identity only further fueled the rumors. Then, in December of last year, just weeks after the Season 5 premiere, a report by All About the Real Housewives suggested her mystery man was producer Randall Emmett. Months later, Lala Kent wished her boyfriend a happy birthday on the same day that Emmett celebrated his 46th birthday.
“[His identity] is going to be out there,” Lala Kent noted. “Obviously, he’s the person I plan to spend my whole life with, but I’m always going to baby it and keep it pretty much private.”

Lala Kent is keeping her relationship secret for now, and when it comes to the future, she will likely continue to stay private about her man until he puts a ring on her finger.
“When I’m on Real Housewives of Beverly Hills, you guys will know,” she joked. “Good lord, can you imagine me and [Lisa Vanderpump] as homies instead of her worker? Life goals!”
As for her possible return to Vanderpump Rules, Lala Kent said she has no current plans to be a part of Season 6, despite having reconciled with a number of her co-stars since filming on Season 5 wrapped.
“They started [filming] today and I’m here, so that tells you what you need to know, I guess,” she said. “I flip flop back and forth… I’m definitely not going to be off of TV, so whether it’s Vanderpump Rules or something else for me, I’m a hustler.”
While Lala Kent may not have filmed the sixth season of Vanderpump Rules quite yet, a possibility of a future appearance exists now that she’s back in the good graces of Scheana Marie and Ariana Madix.
“I’ve made amends with a lot of different people, so that’s amazing for me,” she admitted. “Scheana [Marie] and Ariana [Madix] are, like, life goals for me right now. I’m obsessed… We’re homies, so it’s like, I’m a little bit sad, and now they’re going to be filming all summer and we’re finally friends!”
In the midst of Vanderpump Rules Season 5 last year, Lala Kent confirmed she was leaving the show during an interview with TooFab.
“I’m excited for people to watch me exit because it’s just going to show a new side of my life and I think it will get to show people who I really am,” Lala Kent explained to the outlet. “I watch the show sometimes and I’m like that’s not me. I want people to see who I actually hang out with, my day-to-day life. And I never got to show that.”
“I made it halfway through the season and just decided that I want no part of the people anymore,” she continued. “I feel like they don’t deserve to be in my world in any way shape or form. So I dismissed myself.”
Lala Kent was brought to the show for Season 4 after landing a hosting gig at SUR Restaurant. Then, after feuding with nearly all of her co-stars, she quit her job and the show. Months later, Lala Kent returned to work at SUR Restaurant and is also believed to be working at Lisa Vanderpump’s rescue center in West Hollywood, California.
