Lala Kent Talks James Kennedy, Kristen Doute, Stassi Schroeder, And 'Vanderpump Rules' Season 4

Lala Kent is officially part of the Vanderpump Rules Season 4 cast. Earlier this month, fans watched as the aspiring model landed a job at SUR Lounge, and while she ran into a bit of an issue with her boss after lying about her time off, she continues to work as the restaurant's host.

While fans haven't seen much of Lala Kent yet, she will continue to be a major part of the show, and has already landed a few friends -- and a few enemies. As fans saw last week, Lala Kent seems to have found a fan in Jax Taylor, as well as James Kennedy, who had been caught cheating on his then-girlfriend, Kristen Doute, a couple of episodes prior.

"We are extremely close. No matter what, I know we will always be friends. We just click," Lala Kent said of Kennedy during an interview with Fashion & Style on November 23.

Lala Kent is also rumored to be dating Kennedy, although fans will have to wait until more episodes air before they see how their relationship came about.

Prior to his new relationship with Lala Kent, Kennedy had been dating Doute for one season of the show, but after his cheating with Jenna was exposed during an early episode, their relationship eventually came to an end.

While Lala Kent has hit it off with Kennedy, the same can't be said for Doute. During the trailer, fans see Lala Kent involved in a screaming match with Doute, and judging by her latest comment about her co-star, they are still not on good terms.

"[Kristen]'s just there breathing my air. I don't have any type of feelings towards her," Lala Kent explained.

Since joining the show, and displaying her fiery personality, Lala Kent has got fans wondering if she was brought to the series to replace Stassi Schroeder, and ironically, Lala Kent has more in common with Schroeder than her character. She also once lived in Schroeder's former apartment.

"What a small world, right!? What are the odds that I'd be in her old room? We've met a few times and hung out in big groups. I don't really know her. What I do see from her with my own eyes, I like. She has never been mean to me. What she may say about me behind my back is another story. I don't think about that s**t too much, though."
Since she began working at SUR Lounge, Lala Kent has claimed to have been iced out by a couple of her Vanderpump Rules co-stars, Scheana Marie and Katie Maloney. Last week, Lala Kent opened up about her feelings to Taylor, who works at the restaurant as a bartender, and in response, Taylor claimed the two women often bully new staff members so much that they leave the restaurant in tears.During an interview with Perez Hilton, however, Maloney denied icing Lala Kent out at SUR Lounge, and revealed she was extremely upset with Taylor for claiming she was a bully.
"I wasn't icing her out, I thought I was protecting myself. I mean, you don't really win friends like that. And when she got caught in her lie and Lisa was coming down on her, I think her way of distraction was to turn on the water works and start saying that me and Scheana had been mean when truthfully I talked to her maybe two and a half times and was nice to her for sure."
