Vanderpump Rules' Lala Kent Suggests She "[Doesn't] Know" Kristen After She Suspects She's Jealous of Ariana, Offers Update on Katie, and Jokes Billie Lee is Behind Troll Account

Lala Kent is firing back at Kristen Doute after Kristen made it clear that she didn’t like what she heard from Lala in the trailer for season 11 of Vanderpump Rules.

After Lala, 33, was seen saying that she’s “never experienced someone who gets cheated on and suddenly, she becomes God,” Kristen, 40, took to her podcast, where she suspected the comment was made out of jealousy as Lala appeared on Amazon Live and shaded Kristen and her podcast, while also offering an update on her drama with Katie Maloney, 36, and joking that Billie Lee, 39, could be the Monica Garcia, 40, of their show.

“I know that Lala recently put something out, I saw it very briefly … saying that that was taken out of context, something along those lines. My opinion on that, again, guys, I don’t know, won’t know until we watch it. I do think she’s talking about Ariana,” Kristen said on the December 23 episode of Sex, Love, and What Else Matters, via Bye Wig Hello Drama and VanderPodRecaps on Instagram. “I do think she meant it in the moment.”

According to Kristen, she believes a lot of people felt the same way.

“I think she and [Stassi Schroeder] even said it publicly, that when they were cheated on and they were treated badly, they weren’t getting all of the opportunities that Ariana has gotten. But you know what? Me neither. And guess what, times are different. Things happen in life. Go ahead, be jealous. Be pissy,” Kristen continued. “It doesn’t f*cking bother me. Of course, I wish I had gotten those opportunities when I was cheated on. That would’ve been wonderful. But am I pissed off? Am I salty? Am I bitter? Not at all. I think, ‘F*ck yeah, Ariana, take every opportunity that is handed to you.'”

Although Lala insisted on Amazon Live that she is not jealous of Ariana and that her trailer comment was “definitely taken out of context,” Kristen wasn’t so sure.

“If that’s what was being said, I think it’s a pretty f*cked up thing to say out of jealousy, but maybe that’s not what was being said,” she stated.

Meanwhile, during an Amazon Live appearance this month, via Queens of Bravo on Instagram, Lala threw some shade at Kristen’s podcast while discussing the upcoming 11th season of Pump Rules.

After reading a question from a fan, who wanted to know if she listened to Kristen’s show, Lala replied, “I don’t know who that is, so no.”

She then responded to someone asking if she’d go on Kristen’s podcast, saying, “No,” before wondering, “Does she still have a podcast?”

Another viewer wanted to know if she’d be fast-forwarding through Tom Sandoval‘s scenes on the new season of Pump Rules, as she’s done in the past.

“Depending on how boring they are,” she revealed.

“I just don’t enjoy watching people try and open a restaurant. So they’re not trying to open a restaurant anymore so I’ll probably — maybe I’ll watch. But then again, I cry a lot. I feel like I’m gonna maybe fast-forward through my own. I’m not looking forward to it,” Lala continued.

As for where she stands with Katie, who admitted they had a “short fuse” with one another on The Viall Files earlier this month, Lala confirmed they butted heads during production last year.

“Katie and I are both very passionate and we are ready to go toes at any given moment so when we laser focus on each other, it goes bad real quick, and you guys will see this season, but I love and adore her and all is well,” she stated. “That’s just what we do in this group. As long as you’re not Tom Sandoval, we can pretty much work through anything.”

Someone else on the livestream wanted to know what she’d do if one of her co-stars was exposed for being involved with a troll account, as Monica was during the finale episode of The Real Housewives of Salt Lake City season four.

“Honestly, I’d lose my mind on my other cast members. Some of my cast members like to bring in these randoms and so I would blame it on them,” Lala revealed. “In fact, I have gotten upset about people in the cast because [Rachel “Raquel” Leviss] is a prime example. She was a freaking fan. You brought her into the group and she changed everything. She changed everything. So I would not be happy.”

“Who brings in a random person? I mean, who’s there DJing and then is like, you know what, this random girl who watches the show every week with her mom, I’m gonna make her my girlfriend?” Lala went on.

Then, after it was suggested that Billie could be behind a troll account against Pump Rules, Lala joked, “I would not put that past her.”

Also during her Amazon Live appearance, Lala said that while she couldn’t say season 11 would top season 10, it’s “still gonna be very good.”

“It’s just gonna look different,” she explained. “It was very hard to film. I think you guys will enjoy it. Last year was basically like, the fallout … It’s the aftermath of what happened and the group really not being able to recover from [‘Scandoval’].”

Vanderpump Rules season 11 premieres on Tuesday, January 30, at 8/7c on Bravo.
