Despite all of the snark that happens and all the shade that’s thrown among the cast of Vanderpump Rules, new star Lala Kent says that she’s still very much a fan of co-star Stassi Schroeder.
Lala Kent has been hailed as “the new Stassi” by fans of the Bravo series. But the reality star revealed that she’s not quite like the former SUR restaurant server. Last month, Kent took to Twitter to explain the difference between her and Schroeder.
She tweeted, “I’m not the ‘new Stassi.’ She has blonde hair, a fashion blog, I sing r&b & wear hoops. While she is at fashion shows, I’m watching #BET.”
Just last week, Bustle published an article as to why Lala Kent and Stassi Schroeder are so much alike. Even though it’s clear that they don’t have much in common, it’s obvious that Lala has perfectly filled in Stassi’s shoes while she’s been away. Right now, she’s the one who’s attracting the attention and creating storylines on the reality show, even though she has yet to stepped on a cast member’s toes just yet.
The beauty did get off the wrong foot with Katie Maloney. Kent admitted to Tom Schwartz’s fiancé that she did swim topless with the boys in Hawaii, and Maloney was clearly not pleased.
She already caused her share of trouble by being as real and honest as possible, much like Schroeder herself. Kent is not afraid to overshare, especially when it comes to sharing some juicy gossip or talking about her sex life. Her love interest on the show is the resident bad boy James Kennedy, who kind of acts like Jax Taylor in his younger days.
Not to mention, both ladies were involved with the former villain before he settled down with longtime girlfriend Brittany Cartwright. Now, it looks like neither Schroeder nor Kent want anything to do with the guy.
During Monday night’s episode of Vanderpump Rules, Lala lashed out about Jax’s arrest on the group’s Hawaiian vacation.
She tweeted, “I’m into commitment. If you’re gonna be fat, BE FAT. If you’re gonna rob something, rob a bank. Go big or sit TF down. #PumpRules.”
Stassi Schroeder made an appearance on E! News before the show to reveal what she would rather do than spend one more night with Jax Taylor.
“God, I guess I’d be Lisa’s assistant,” Schroeder reluctantly answered.
And like Stassi, Lala knows how to get her way with her SUR co-workers or with the guys she comes across in her life. When Stassi started on Vanderpump Rules Season 1, she was 25-years-old, which is the same age as Lala. And like Stassi, Lala has supplemented her modeling career by working at SUR.
While Stassi and Lala couldn’t be any more different, she revealed that she’s always been a huge fan of the star.
In late January, she tweeted, “Stassi is a banger. I usually don’t love on the blondes, but gooood lord. She looks fine AF.”
The two have yet to meet on the show, though, so it’s any wonder how they will interact in the near future.
Schroeder has already revealed that she isn’t a huge fan of Lala Kent and James Kennedy after she saw their bizarre appearance on Watch What Happens Live. The rumored couple appeared to have too much to drink as they cussed during the live telecast, despite several stern warnings from host Andy Cohen.
On December 15, Stassi took to Twitter to speak out about James and Lala’s unprofessional behavior. She wrote: “Don’t want to associated with the illiterate divs from last night. Gross. @BravoWWHL @Andy.”
Also featured in Stassi Schroeder’s tweet was a meme that included the phrase, “I’m not a ghetto b—-h.”
Fans are now looking forward to if and when Kent will respond to Schroeder’s tweet in the near future. Maybe it will happen in future episodes or on the reunion episode.
