Lala Kent’s boyfriend has been a topic of great intrigue and debate for the Vanderpump Rules crew for a few seasons now. The SUR hostess is intentionally private about their relationship and doesn’t feature him on social media. Despite the fact that he hasn’t popped up on the show, a few members of Lala’s inner circle have met him, including Tom Sandoval and Tom Schwartz, who have both had the privilege of spending time with Lala and her man as a couple.
“No, I mean we’re not BFFs," Schwartz told The Daily Dish podcast. "I’ve only hung out with him a few times. I do really enjoy his company; he’s really charming, driven, just an all-around really cool guy.”
“We’re both really good friends with him,” Sandoval interjected.
Whatever degree of "bestie" they consider him to be, both Toms described Lala's boyfriend as “charismatic,” “fun,” and “high-energy.” High praise! Schwartz added that he fulfilled two of his dreams in a short period of time: “I got to go to the Poker After Dark set and I also got to play at Live at the Bike, which I’ve always wanted to do my whole life since I’ve lived here."
“We both got to play at Live at the Bike,” Sandoval clarified.
Lala's man isn’t just a fairy godfather to the Vanderpump Rules boys; Southern Charm’s Shep Rose and Craig Conover were cast in one of his movies with Bruce Willis, info that Sandoval hadn’t previously known but was suddenly very interesting to him. “At least hire me as a bartender in a movie, c’mon!”
Lala also spilled on her man’s relationship with her friends during her interview on The Daily Dish podcast, noting now that she and Katie Maloney-Schwartz have gotten past their beef, the couples hang out and play poker together. “My man is in a full-on bromance with [Schwartz],” she said. It sounds like this a mutual admiration society!
To hear more from the Toms, including their thoughts on the possibility that Brittany Cartwright was pregnant and how they currently "practice moderation" when drinking, listen to the podcast episode above. And for more from Lala on her relationship, check out the video below.
