Lala Kent: I’m 60 Days Sober and I Still Hate James Kennedy! | Wireler
There was a time when it appeared extremely unlikely, however consider it or not, the solid of Vanderpump Rules is rising up.
Jax Taylor and Brittany Cartwright are engaged; Stassi Schroeder is relationship a man who would not look like a colossal douche-nozzle; the Toms have made the leap from Lisa’s lackeys to Lisa’s enterprise companions …
But maybe nobody has taken as many steps towards full-blown adulting as Lala Kent.
Back in September, we realized that Lala is engaged to movie producer Randall Emmett, the person who was as soon as derided by the remainder of the solid as Kent’s adulterous sugar daddy.
Make no mistake — Emmett is loaded — but it surely’s not clear that Lala is way extra to him than a side-piece.
We’re positive Randall’s profession will get better from the movie Gotti and it is zero % Rotten Tomatoes rating, and that he and Lala will snjoy many luxurious years collectively.
But Kent’s greatest achievement of 2018 is not touchdown a rich fiance or cementing her place as probably the most down-to-earth, relatable member of the Vanderpump solid.
No, her biggest accomplishment is waging a victorious battle in opposition to substance abuse.
“Today marks 60 days that I’ve been sober and it’s been the very best 60 days that I’ve had in a extremely very long time,” Kent shared in her Instagram story at present.
“Thank you to my sponsor, thanks to my sober coach, people in my meetings that tell me to keep taking it day by day,” she stated, blowing a kiss on the digicam. “I love you guys.”
The information comes simply months after the demise of Lala’s father.
“I stayed dry this season, most of it, I didn’t drink just because I was so up and down with the emotions with my dad. … I was still kind of in a fog,” Kent stated in a latest interview selling the present season of Vanderpump.
“So I think a lot of the stuff I see this season, I’m going to remember after I watch it, I was very foggy and just very emotional at the same time.”
In a separate interview from earlier this month, Lala opened up about her determination to get sober:
“My fiancé all the time says I have this sixth sense the place I know when issues have gotten to some extent the place they should change, so I can’t actually pinpoint one incident [that marked a turn to sobriety],” she advised Cosmopolitan.
“When I actually got here to the conclusion that I am in that zone of getting an issue, I simply stated sufficient’s sufficient. I picked up the cellphone, I known as this sponsor that had been really helpful to me. It’s the very best determination of my entire life.”
Kent went on to disclose that her alcohol consumption was by no means about partying:
Drinking for me was remedy as a substitute of celebration,” she advised the journal.
“Instead of going and speaking to any individual about shedding somebody extraordinarily vital to you, we flip to issues to medicate.
“I simply wish to be sure that I put my voice on the market to say, attain out to somebody, attain out to a grief counselor, associate with somebody who could make you are feeling such as you’re not by your self and going utterly insane.”
Lala did not open up about her emotions towards her ex-BFF James Kennedy and his more and more problematic boozing, but it surely’s change into clear that she’s very a lot not a fan.
(Especially after the way in which James skewered Gotti on Sunday evening’s episode.)
We commend Lala on opening up in such candid style, and we want her all the very best going ahead.
