A “Vanderpump Rules” star was in the area this past weekend, and it wasn’t Stassi Schroeder, who is seemingly obsessed with “Southern Charm” and who became a regular visitor to Charleston after befriending cast members Danni Baird, Craig Conover, Naomie Olindo and Shep Rose two years ago.
Lala Kent, a favorite on #PumpRules, especially this season, and the woman behind Give Them Lala lip gloss, was spotted by a sharp-eyed “Vanderpump Rules” fan in Savannah — or rather, the’s sharp-eyed fan’s husband — waiting for a car on Broughton Street with her “man,” film and TV producer Randall Emmett.
The couple, who had just eaten at a Japanese restaurant, were in town because, according to the fan’s Reddit post, Emmett’s production company frequently films in Savannah.
Never miss a local story.
The fan posted the photo she had taken with Kent on Reddit and raved about the encounter: “You guys, she was so super nice and so was her boyfriend. I asked her about James and she said they really were best friends but, now they are not. She said he totally does boys. My husband was actually the one that spotted her (which I love). Honestly, I wasn’t a huge Lala fan but, now I am! Edit: I made a comment about ‘the pasta’ and she just laughed!”
Oopsy. Sorry for your luck, James Kennedy, but really it’s no big deal. Plus, it wouldn’t be a new season of “Vanderpump Rules” without rumors of bisexual encounters.
Speaking of Kennedy, the fan was sure to let Reddit users know that Emmett, who wouldn’t jump in the picture because Kent said “people hate him,” seemed like a good guy and was not, as Kennedy claimed, a “fat man.”
“He was very nice. It was if we were talking to old friends. My husband said we should have asked them to get a drink with us because they totally would have.”
The fan said she kept petting Kent’s coat, so who knows ... maybe drinks really could’ve been a thing.
Other details that Reddit commenters pointed out or were surprised by: Lala’s looking prettier, younger and healthier now that she’s cooled it with the fillers; Lala is genuinely nice; Lala looks like Gigi Hadid; “Vanderpump” stars are great with fans; and Lala was apparently in Savannah last month (but I see no Insta-evidence of that ... lots of Insta-evidence of her private-jetting it, so Lala wasn’t kidding about how “Lala flies”).
On a sidenote, whatever Kent ate at that Japanese restaurant apparently wasn’t enough. At 1:15-ish Sunday morning, she tweeted a photo of a disastrous pizza situation from Domino’s.
She should’ve ordered the pasta ...
