Lala Kent is fighting back against claims of being “all over the place” and “mean.”

After gossiping about Raquel Leviss‘ drunken antics with Katie Maloney and Kristina Kelly on the latest episode of Vanderpump Rules, and later slamming her as a “liability,” Lala responded to a podcast host, who suggested she was acting out in response to her custody drama with ex-fiance Randall Emmett, which hasn’t yet been much of a storyline on season 10.

“Lala is all over the place,” Ryan Bailey, host of So Bad It’s Good, wrote on Instagram on March 16. “[Bye Wig Hello Drama] mentioned that Lala is still mad at Randall and that anger is potentially coming out in other places. I personally wish we would get more of that storyline of the Randall of it all. It just would add more context of what Lala is actually going thru during that time in filming and why she punches down a lot.”

“Also,” he added, “Raquel turned out to be awful, but if this information hadn’t dropped yet, it would have painted Raquel as a complete underdog [you] root for. Instead of the creep, she turned out to be.”

Following the post, Lala shared an Instagram Story in which she included Ryan’s message, and asked, “Why do we have to keep schooling people on life?”

She then highlighted four points.

“1. My situation is delicate, and there are legal aspects involved. Although I shared it all, who knows what will be put in the season. I do know one day, everything that I’m dealing with behind the scenes will be revealed,” Lala wrote.

“2. You can say all day long IF THIS NEVER HAPPENED WITH SCANDOVAL Lala would have looked mean. Some of you act so brand new to me. You know the drill by now. I’ve never liked Raquel. She’s always triggered me. NOW WE KNOW WHY Derrrrr. It’s a big iffff y’all,” she continued.

In point number three, Lala acknowledged that she, like Raquel, has made questionable decisions while drunk. However, unlike Raquel, she is now sober.

“I made decisions I was not proud of. Things that wouldn’t have happened had I been clear and sober. It’s not an excuse, it’s fact. And unless you struggle with addiction you won’t understand, nor does your opinion have any place on this conversation,” Lala explained.

“4. My words are intense. I got that,” she went on. “Things I say at times are completely out of pocket. However, words are words. I’m about actions. Raquel was full of friendly words … Her actions, not so much.”

In another screenshot shared by a Pump Rules fan page on Instagram, Ryan’s entire post was revealed, including a message he shared on Twitter about Katie having more of a right to be upset with Raquel.

“Katie was completely justified in her feelings for Raquel because she admittedly was trying to make out with Schwartz. Now Lala, on the other hand, just came off really mean seeing no one has ever tried to steal Randall,” he wrote.

Throughout Wednesday’s episode, Lala expressed her disgust in Raquel, telling her it was a good thing she didn’t have a man to steal. As she explained, the comment was not only offensive to women, but it was downright wrong.

Vanderpump Rules season 10 airs Wednesdays at 9/8c on Bravo.
