Ariana Madix, Tom Sandoval, and Scheana Marie were some of the only cast members to welcome Lala Kent to the group when she joined the show. As her friendship progresses with Katie Maloney and Stassi Schroeder, she grew further apart from the other three.
The couple visited Scheana’s podcast where they talked about Kent’s alleged alliance with Stassi and Katie. They feel that Lala was quick to ditch them because being friends with the others is a good look.
Sandoval revealed interesting details about the aspiring actress.
‘[Lala’s] publicist said that was definitely a move she was making. Two or three years ago, she decided it was a good decision for her on the show to be friends with Katie and Stassi… not saying that there is not legitimacy in them being friends now.’
Scheana revealed that they were all left out of Lala’s wedding party.
‘It’s like how we’re not in Lala’s wedding, and that’s totally fine. It’s her wedding it’s her day… have whoever you want in it. But we were the two people who were friends with her first [and] now we’re the two people she’ll pop off on. It’s never Katie or Stassi. I feel like there’s this weird [thing] where they have a pact to not call each other out or something.’
Ariana then chimed in on the group’s tendencies to gang up on each other.
‘I understand wanting to stand up for your friend. That is a real-life emotion. But, I think it shouldn’t be so black and white because with our show, most situations there’s no clear right or wrong. I think there has to be a little more talking about the gray area. I understand if someone sees their friend upset wanting to stand up for them but also not turning it into a gang up.’
This comes after Lala called out Tom for insinuating she was not a good friend.
Do you think that Lala has changed?
