Lala Kent was accused of calling Katie Maloney “miserable” on the latest episode of Vanderpump Rules. But according to her, she never used that particular word.

As Lala, 33, denied Ally Lewber‘s claim against her, she explained why she felt that Katie, 37, was unhappy amidst filming on season 11 last year as Katie clapped back by suggesting it wasn’t a fair assessment and suspecting Lala was deflecting her own potential unhappiness.

“I vividly remember not saying the word miserable. I actively tried to steer clear of that word,” Lala insisted on the April 16 episode of the Pump Rules: After Show. “[But] Katie seems very unhappy to me.”

According to Lala, her assessment of Katie’s mental state wasn’t only due to what she saw from Katie when cameras were rolling, but also things Katie told her when they weren’t.

“She has said to me that she didn’t picture her life this way; she did not picture herself a year and a half, two years out of her relationship still being single and it being this hard to find good dudes,” Lala revealed. “I think that that also kind of, like, weighs on her.”

“She wants a companion but she forgets that men in these streets are scrubs,” Lala added.

Meanwhile, in her own segment with Ariana Madix, 38, Katie said she didn’t know why Lala would say she was “miserable.”

“I don’t really think that’s an accurate description. I think I’ve been more stressed out than usual, but miserable isn’t the word,” she noted. “I haven’t been miserable in a year, since everyone was giving me sh*t for the whole [Tom Schwartz] and [Rachel ‘Raquel’ Leviss] thing.”

Katie then shaded Lala over her hangout with Jo Wenberg, who had a fling with Schwartz, 40, last summer.

“If I have to deal with one of my friends, who I don’t understand why they’re hanging out with Jo and getting coffee with her and fails to mention it to me after she got mad that I forgot to mention to her about [Max Boyens] … To categorize somebody as miserable … It’s like, what?” Katie wondered, asking, “Can I not have bad moments or bad days?”

“I’m not [miserable] so that’s not, it’s not a fair thing to say,” she added.

Then, when Ariana, who Katie is in the midst of opening a sandwich shop with, mentioned that ups and downs are “just the nature of life and different things you have to deal with,” Katie explained that she’s someone who gives people what they give to her.

“I always am kind of reactive to the way people are responding to me. So take that into account, Lala,” she advised.

Vanderpump Rules season 11 airs Tuesdays at 8/7c on Bravo.
