There's been a lot of talk about Lala Kent's boyfriend on Vanderpump Rules, but the SUR hostess has remained mum on the details of her love life. Her onetime allies, Tom Sandoval and Ariana Madix, have even gotten thrown into the controversy thanks to some rumors that they signed an NDA after spending time in a house said boyfriend rented for Lala and her friends at Coachella, and the Vanderpump Rules couple spilled everything they know about the mystery man on Watch What Happens Live with Andy Cohen.
Unfortunately, it wasn't much. It seems that Lala and her love are doing a good job of keeping his identity a mystery. Tom and Ariana said they have never met Lala's boyfriend, and he wasn't at the house while they were at Coachella. In fact, Tom said that Lala wasn't even there. "Lala gave her wristband away," he said. "She did not go to the festival. We did not see her the entire weekend."
They also denied ever signing an NDA about Lala's boyfriend. "That was the first time that I had heard of this NDA thing," Ariana said of Stassi Schroeder confronting her at Katie Maloney-Schwartz's bridal shower. "It was really weird."
However, Tom and Ariana couldn't confirm or deny those rumors about Lala's boyfriend being married "because I don't know who it is for sure," Ariana explained. But they said that it "seems likely" that he paid for the Range Rover Lala has been flaunting this season.
Lala announced that she was stepping away from Vanderpump Rules in December 2016, which is something that Ariana said she didn't necessarily understand. "Honestly, at the end of all of it, I'm not really sure why she left the show because we've all been through some really crappy stuff on it, so it doesn't really make sense to me that, knowing that she had two allies who were always gonna try to see things fairly for her, to just dip out on us like that," she told one WWHL caller.
Tom and Ariana said they still haven't completely forgiven Lala for skipping out on Ariana's NASCAR-rific birthday trip either, saying that the incident really changed their relationship. But they're all cool with each other these days. Ariana said that she and Lala have even kept in touch via text recently.
Lala also showed remorse for suddenly bowing out of Ariana's birthday trip on Twitter. "I messed up. Im embarrassed that I missed ur bday. After how kind u were 2 me. I'm sry," Lala tweeted to Ariana. "Im so happy that u had a good time tho."
She continued to explain why she felt like she couldn't attend Ariana's bash. "I truly believed Ariana's birthday would have been a toxic situation," she tweeted. "Should have handled better. I own that."
