Lala Kent has faced a lot of backlash ever since she appeared on Season 4 of Vanderpump Rules. She received most of the heat from fellow castmate Katie Maloney, who seems to hate the reality star for no apparent reason.
Katie Maloney spoke out about her feud with Lala Kent to TooFab’s Candice Brock. Viewers quickly noticed that the reality starlets butted heads all season long, including on the Vanderpump Rules reunion show. Things really got heated on the group’s trip to Hawaii, when Maloney had a problem with Kent swimming topless. But the SUR server revealed she’s had issues with Kent long before their trip. She also admitted that they will never be friends.
“I don’t know why me not going out of my way to her looked like I was trying to silent bully her or not include her in things. She was a stranger. I don’t think we have a whole lot in common and that’s fine, it doesn’t mean we need to be enemies.”
Katie insists that she’s not jealous of Lala. She just didn’t like how her fellow castmate decided to go topless with couples and guys in plain view.
“Of course, there’s the stuff in Hawaii with her taking her top off. I think that just got spun in a very ugly way where it looked like I was insecure or jealous. I just didn’t understand that behavior, I’m not really down with that. I have no problems with boobs, it’s just the intention behind it.”
The reason why Maloney has a beef with the model is probably because she heard that Kent has a crush on her man. According to StarPulse, Kent has a burning crush on Tom Schwartz and has revealed that she would love to sleep with him because he looks like he would be good in bed.
Lala Kent first revealed her crush on the Vanderpump Rules After Show in early March. She admitted that she would think Tom would be a great lover.
“I have the biggest crush on Schwartz. Oh my gosh, how could you not?” she gushed to hosts Julie Goldman and Brandy Howard.
“It’s pent up. He hasn’t gotten laid in a while,” Kent alluded to the sex drought that’s been haunting the engaged couple. She thinks that the male model would be great in bed because she feels that he hasn’t had good sex in a while.
“No wonder why Katie was pissed that you had your boobs out,” Brandy jokingly said to Lala.
That’s not entirely shocking to learn since Lala Kent wasn’t shy when it came to her attraction to Jax Taylor. The two often flirted on the show even though he was in a relationship with Brittany Cartwright, but he failed to tell her that major detail. The bad boy even admitted countless times that he wanted to sleep with Lala while his girlfriend was still living in Kentucky.
During a drunken dinner, Kent pulled Cartwright aside to tell her “the truth” behind their flirtation. Taylor denied the allegations while Cartwright refused to believe Kent.
At the time, Jax’s girlfriend wasn’t pleased about the rumors she heard about Lala.
“She has no respect for herself or other women, and people like that disgust me,” she was heard saying.
Watch Lala Kent, Katie Maloney, Tom Schwartz, and the rest of the gang battle it once again on part three of the Vanderpump Rules reunion show tonight at 8 p.m. EST on Bravo.
