Lala Kent returned to Vanderpump Rules this week and also appeared on Watch What Happens Live with Andy Cohen Monday night. Kent has been surrounded by rumors that she was dating a married man this season on the show and she was confronted with the question again.
“He is not married, never has been while I’ve been around,” she explained on Monday. She then broke down how hard the rumors were on her at the time.
“It was extremely heavy for me because I am an open book, but I do protect people when they aren’t as open as I am and that was my main goal,” she continued. “But it just would not die, so at some point I broke. I don’t think I’ve ever been under that much pressure before.”
But she says her man was supportive during the drama. “I mean he was nothing but supportive,” she said. “But at the same time, he was also making sure that everything was remaining steady in his own world and that the whole word wouldn’t come crashing down.”
Lala says she and her guy are still going strong. “We’re good and happy and healthy and all of the above,” she said, adding this message for anyone concerned about the romance: “Don’t worry about it. I’m in a happy relationship. That’s all people need to know right now. To be continued, dot dot dot dot. We’ll see where it goes.”
Another interesting twist in the relationship was exposed by her friend, James Kennedy, who claimed that he had to sign an NDA in order to hang with the couple. She confirmed that it was her idea to make him do that. “To make this very clear, the only person that ever actually was given an NDA was James Kennedy because he’s reckless at the mouth,” she said. “I think we all can agree on that. It didn’t go too far.”
Lala told The Daily Dish, “I probably shouldn’t have asked him to sign something like that because he is my friend,” she said. However, she noted, “I don’t know if we’re gonna be at zero today or 100 today and you can’t control him once he goes. So i kind of just thought it was something to have my back and instead it turned into a story line.”
