“Vanderpump Rules” is back in full swing. The season premiere and interviews that took place after it revealed so many things that were going on with the cast.
Lala Kent returns this installment as a brunette. Since the show aired its sixth season finale, her life has changed immensely.
Unfortunately, her father, Kent Burningham, suddenly passed away in April. It was believed that he died in his sleep; however, the 27-year-old explained that he actually suffered from a stroke.
Lala opened up about struggling with alcohol dependency after the shocking passing. She has since claimed that she is fully sober.
On a positive note, the Give Them Lala beauty owner got engaged to her movie producer boyfriend who she is finally referring to by name.
Randall Emmett proposed to the reality star on her birthday in September. He was able to ask for her hand in marriage from Burningham before he passed away.
Kent opened up in a Bravo interview saying that Emett is just like her father while explaining how they met.
“There’s like, that saying where you marry people that are like your dad. And I never thought that that was true until I totally found someone who is just like my dad, which I am so grateful for because my dad treated my mom like she was queen of all queens. So, we actually met at SUR. How crazy is that?! He came in for a Christmas dinner and sent his assistant up to me and asked me if he could get my manager’s contact info because he wanted me in a film. And so then we started that whole process, I booked the film and then we just had this instant connection”
She went on to say: “It was my first season of ‘Vanderpump [Rules].’ I think only like, three episodes had aired of Season 4. I was like, OK, I’m going to let my guard down. Whatever’s happening, I like it, you know? He makes me laugh. Give it a try. And we’ve been together almost three years now.”
