Lala, we hardly knew ye.
After just one season on Vanderpump Rules, the hostess who proved to have to have a preternatural talent for stirring up drama (which made her a perfect fit at SUR) has announced that she will not be returning for the show’s fifth season.
The 25-year-old model and long-winded speech interrupter made the surprise announcement as only she could, addressing a hater on Twitter in the sassy style she became known for during her brief stint as a reality star.
It started when a fan of the beloved Bravo series tweeted a random reminder that Lala is not well-liked by her fellow castmates:
"@lala_kent crazy how @stassi is on vacation with everyone & ur not.. Just goes to show ur still hated as the show goes on."
Lala responded with as much sass as one can fit into 140 characters:
"@kendallfoxxxay @stassi I have decided to part ways from the show. Thanks bitch."
She later confirmed that she won’t be returning to the show with a follow-up tweet and a hint that she may have a new project in the works:
"I made the decision to leave the show. I realized it isn’t for me. IT WAS COMPLETELY MY DECISION," Lala tweeted.
She later added: "#ibelongonVH1"
She followed the cryptic hashtag with an Instagram post addressed to her fans:
"I love you all and thank you all. I’m overwhelmed by the amount of love I gained from such sweet people in such a short period of time.
"The fan base I have has kept me on cloud 9. Stay tuned for Lala’s next move. #upup&away"
It’s unclear what prompted Kent’s departure, but given the amount of drama she experienced during her brief time as a SUR girl, any number of factors could have been to blame:
Lala and James Kennedy were nearly fired by the network after they cursed up a storm on Andy Cohen’s Watch What Happens Live last year.
Shortly thereafter, Lala’s relationship with Jacksonville Jaguars linebacker Hayes Pullard was revealed, despite her efforts to keep it a secret.
We don’t know what her next move will be, but based on the sales for the single she released with James Kennedy, we’re guessing she won’t be giving it a go in the music biz.
We’ll keep you posted, and in the meantime, you can watch Vanderpump Rules online to relive all of Lala’s best moments.
Sigh. Who will tell Kristen to shut up now?
Oh, right – everyone.
