Vanderpump Rules’ Lala Kent is a modern-day renaissance woman: She is SUR hostess, a beauty mogul, a reality TV star and recording artist; she once announced that she had “taken up reading books”; she drinks her anxiety medication from a baby bottle; and says a daily empowerment prayer where “I look in the mirror and I literally talk to every part of my body and I’m like, ‘I love you.’” She has not a boyfriend, but a “man” whose dick she speaks often and proudly of blowing so well that he showers her not only with semen, but also with riches. And now? She’s a movie star.

On Thursday, Deadline announced that Lala had been cast in Vault, a crime feature set in the ’70s that stars real, actual working actors like Samira Wiley, Theo Rossi, Don Johnson, and Chazz Palminteri. To be fair to Lala’s credits, this is not her first film. She’s also made starring turns in The Row, on VOD this summer, and a Christian baseball movie called Pitching Love & Catching Faith. Valut is being made by Verdi Productions. Here is Lala once again reading, this time not an Ayn Rand novel, but a script:


Give them (us) Lala. Give Lala an Academy Award.

I recently binge watched seasons one through five of this show and I can’t figure out how I feel about Lala Kent. Sometimes I can’t stand her (like when she talks in a cringeworthy gangsta rap voice. Girl, you are from UTAH.) and other times I think she’s glorious (that scene where she made the “summer bodies” comment was problematic but also incredible). Few people confuse my emotions like this person. Not sure if that’s a compliment or an insult.

Either way, I am Team Kristen Doute, so take my opinion with a big grain of salt (and a big glass of white wine).
