On Monday night’s episode of Vanderpump Rules, Scheana Shay was shown basically giving Lala Kent the cold shoulder when Lala tried to have a friendly conversation with her. Not only that, but Scheana, as well as Jax Taylor’s girlfriend and new SUR employee Brittany Cartwright, got up and left the table rather than continue to be in Lala’s presence.
Yet instead of being mad at Scheana, it seems that Lala still has a soft spot for Scheana. On Tuesday, Lala posted a tweet in which she made it clear that she thinks that Scheana was bullied by others into turning her back on her. Clearly in reference to Katie Maloney, Kristen Doute, and Stassi Schroeder, Lala wrote that she’s disgusted and appalled that the “little mean girls” bullied Scheana, who was somewhat friendly with her last season, into bullying her.
The latest episode showed Lala approaching Scheana and Brittany at work. After asking some work-related questions, to which Scheana and Brittany responded with as few as words as possible, Lala asked them about their weekends. Scheana pretty much told Lala that she doesn’t want to talk to her and then left the table, followed by Brittany.
“I’m like really not trying to be a b**ch, it’s just like Katie is one of my best friends. I’m happy to say hello to you and be professional, I just, like the conversation, it just makes me uncomfortable. But I hope you had a fun weekend.”
In her confessional interview, Lala said that she didn’t want to face Katie’s wrath again.
“The last time Katie saw Lala and I in the same room, I got the full-on wrath of Tequila Katie so I don’t want anyone to see Lala trying to talk to me cause then that’s going to get back to Katie and I don’t want to hear it.”
The episode then showed Katie, Kristen, and Stassi at lunch together when Kristen gets a text from Scheana back at SUR. Scheana, via her text, told Kristen what just happened with Lala. Kristen read out Scheana’s text. All three women applauded over what Scheana did to Lala.
On last week’s Vanderpump Rules episode, Katie made it clear to Scheana Shay that she was not happy that she was still being friendly to Lala. Scheana assured Katie that she was on her side.
Katie had previously confronted Lala for making fun of her weight, making comments about wanting to get with her beau Tom Schwartz, and showing Tom her breasts. Lala apologized but Katie didn’t accept the apology, deeming it fake. Katie then accused Lala of being fake and a “w**re” who’s going out with a married man. When Lala denied being with a married man, Katie brought up all of the expensive things that she has, such as her Range Rover car. Lala explained that her parents pay for everything, an explanation that Katie didn’t buy.
After the latest episode aired, Lala Kent posted a saying that her pal James Kennedy said to boss Lisa Vanderpump when trying to explain his frequent clashes with others. According to James, the others, especially Jax Taylor, were just “thirsty little girls that need a drink.” While James’ statement to Lisa was directed at Jax, it’s likely that Lala’s tweet was directed at Katie Maloney and her friends. In response to the tweet, many viewers left comments criticizing Katie, Stassi, and Kristen. Some viewers gave their opinion that the three are just jealous of Lala.
Yet Lala doesn’t seem to be letting the exclusion by Scheana Shay, Katie Maloney, Stassi Schroeder, and Kristen Doute get her down. Prior to the episode airing, Lala sarcastically tweeted that only “bad b**ches” can sit at her table. She also re-named the show Lala Rules.
Only bad b**ches at my table. An all new episode of Lala Rules airs tonight at 9/8c, only by @Bravotv #pumprules”
Lala is also hitting back with media interviews. On Monday morning, Lala did an interview with Jenny McCarthy in which she claimed that some of her co-stars dislike her so much that they’re trying to sabotage her even outside of filming Vanderpump Rules.
When Jenny gave her opinion that the other girls are treating Lala badly because they’re jealous that she’s prettier than them, Lala said that she has no clue why she has never been accepted.
“Can I tell you, I don’t know why these girls don’t like me because now I’ve definitely given everyone a reason to not like me because I, you know, spoken my truth and my mind, but they haven’t been kind to me since the second I walked into the restaurant and onto this show, so there’s gotta be some reason why they don’t like me. People don’t just not like people.”
Lala Kent then claimed that some of her co-stars are going so far as trying to take jobs away from her.
“These people are so crazy I have to tell you, I booked this gig, this appearance, and my manager calls me and is like, ‘Oh my gosh, your cast members are crazy. Like one of them had their manager call and they’re trying to have the person that owns the club not hire you and they listed all these reasons like Lala sleeps with married men. She’s no longer on the show.’ They were trying to take this job from me! They’re taking it like outside the show now, trying to take gigs from me that I’m booking free and clear on my own. I’m like, ‘Damn ya’ll are really invested in making my life not good.'”
