Lala Kent feels she carried the 11th season of Vanderpump Rules on her back.

During an appearance on Wednesday, the 33-year-old pregnant reality star seemingly took credit for the success of the season as she revealed if she has any regrets, shared new details about a mean DM Katie Maloney, 37, sent her, and confirmed where she stands with Tom Sandoval, 41.

“I feel like every headline this season has been about me. My back hurts!” Lala declared during a May 15 appearance on Amazon Live. “The hate was extremely loud … It was hard this round.”

While Lala was previously accused of bullying Rachel “Raquel” Leviss, 29, and expressed regret over doing so, the same can’t be said for her interactions with her castmates this year.

“There were moments that I could say, ‘You know, I wish I would’ve handled that differently,’ and I was heated in the moment. This is the first season where I stand behind what I said, and I stand behind what I did, so there’s no remedying the audience’s opinion of me right now,” she stated.

After it was recently revealed that Katie had sent her a message, slamming her as a “clown” and telling her she needs a therapist, not a lawyer, Lala confirmed the post came in response to her friendship with Scheana Shay, 39.

“The reason she called me a clown was because I was hanging out with Scheana,” Lala revealed, adding that she and Katie were in a “good place at the time.”

According to Lala, the “most hurtful thing” about Katie’s message was the way she signed off.

“She knew exactly why I had lawyers. She knew exactly what my lawyers were doing in my custody battle [with Randall Emmett], and for her to just throw that out there was so wild to me.”

Equally surprising to Lala was Katie’s reaction to her sharing of what was said about Ariana Madix, 38, behind her back, which included Katie being upset over feeling like she was doing the bulk of the work regarding her restaurant with Ariana, Something About Her.

“That was not a confidential conversation that she’s talking about. These are statements she made to production, and then flipped the script on everybody last minute,” Lala clarified. “There were confidential conversations between the two of us, and I did not and will not say anything that she said or I said in those conversations.”

Still, despite their current feud, Lala said, “Time does crazy things,” when asked about a potential reconciliation.

With Pump Rules currently on a filming hiatus, a number of rumors have swirled in regard to what season 12 will look like — and what the cast will be for The Valley season two.

“I don’t know what my summer will look like. I kind of am just taking everything one day at a time,” Lala admitted, addressing a report claiming she is considering a role.

As for her relationship with Sandoval, Lala said they “don’t talk” as she explained she was simply “seeing all sides” of the “Scandoval” aftermath of season 11.

“I didn’t jump on the Sandoval train,” she stated. “There may be things with Ariana that don’t make sense to me, but I’m sticking with her.”

Lala is also sticking with Scheana.

“I’m not letting anyone ruin it. Scheana lets Lala Lala, and I let Scheana Scheana. Whenever anyone wants to complain about either of us, I’m like, ‘Let us Lala and Scheana, alright! Back off!’ Because we’ve got it figured out. You know? It goes so beyond this show. This is family. This is deep-rooted now,” she explained.

The three-part Vanderpump Rules season 11 reunion continues with part two next Tuesday, May 21, at 8/7c on Bravo.
