These are tumultuous times in the lives of the Vanderpump Rules cast.
In fact, it may be time to start referring to them as ex-reality stars, as it looks increasingly as though the show will never return to Bravo.
The firing of Stassi Schroeder and Kristen Doute has garnered the most headlines, but it seems it’s been an eventful summer for the ladies’ former co-stars, as well.
And for the first time in 8 years, Bravo cameras haven’t captured a single second of it!
The latest drama comes to us courtesy of Lala Kent and Randall Emmett.
If you’re a fan of the show, you probably know that Lala and Randall are engaged — or perhaps we should say were engaged.
As The Ashley’s Reality Roundup reports, Lala deleted all photos of Randall from her Instagram page on Sunday.
She also unfollowed him on the site, which seems like a strange move, especially if she’s still planning to marry the guy in the near future.
The couple was all set to tie the knot in April, but their wedding was postponed due to the coronavirus pandemic.
It’s unclear exactly what transpired between these two, but if they
are broken up, it’s safe to say the spilt happened rather abruptly.
Just five days ago, Lala was on vacation with Randall and his family in Puerto Rico, an occasion that he painstakingly documented for his Instagram followers.
Interestingly, all the photos of Lala that he posted remain fully visible on his page.
As for what may have transpired between these two, that remains a mystery, but fans think it may have had something to do with booze.
Lala has been sober for nearly two years, and she says steering clear of the sauce is still a daily struggle.
She and Rand initially quit drinking together, and her fury over his relapse was captured by Vanderpump cameras.
Emmett later began drinking moderately, and Lala was reportedly okay with that arrangement, provided he avoided getting drunk in her presence.
Did he slip up and fail to stick to the arrangement?
It’s tough to say, but many fans noted that after she deleted all or Rand’s pics, Lala shared an intimate post in which she used language frequently heard in Alcoholics Anonymous meetings:
“Dear God, It is I who has made my life a mess,” she wrote.
“I have done it, but I cannot undo it. My mistakes are mine & I will begin a searching & fearless moral inventory. I will write down my wrongs but I will also include that which is good. I pray for the strength to complete the task.”
On Friday, just before she deleted all of Emmett’s photos, Lala cryptically referred to the addicts she sees all around her:
“I see addiction in front of me often- but it isn’t my job to speak on it, nor is it my job to judge,” she wrote.
“It’s my job to pray for them and take a moment of silence for the alcoholic who still suffers. And when someone comes to me asking for help, I offer my ear & knowledge, and point them in the direction that was pointed to me.”
Obviously, we have no way of knowing if she’s referring to Rand or the other heavy drinkers who surround her (read: the entire Vanderpump cast).
Whatever the case, it appears that Lala and Rand are kaput for the time being.
