We are slowly peeling back the layers on Lala Kent's romance with her fiancé, Randall Emmett. Initially, the Vanderpump Rules hostess was hesitant to even use his name, but that's no longer the case now that they are engaged. And, in an interview with Cosmopolitan, she's shedding even more light on her romance with Randall, whom she has affectionately dubbed, "daddy husband."
"There’s like, that saying where you marry people that are like your dad. And I never thought that that was true until I totally found someone who is just like my dad, which I am so grateful for because my dad treated my mom like she was queen of all queens. So, we actually met at SUR. How crazy is that?! He came in for a Christmas dinner and sent his assistant up to me and asked me if he could get my manager’s contact info because he wanted me in a film. And so then we started that whole process, I booked the film and then we just had this instant connection," she recalled. "It was my first season of Vanderpump [Rules]. I think only like, three episodes had aired of Season 4. I was like, OK, I’m going to let my guard down. Whatever’s happening, I like it, you know? He makes me laugh. Give it a try. And we’ve been together almost three years now."
Lala and Randall got engaged back in September and the pair are now planning their wedding, but aren't in any rush to walk down the aisle, as they recently told The Daily Dish. And in her interview with Cosmopolitan, Lala noted that Randall is definitely an important figure in her life.
"He’s my best friend. He takes care of my heart and my soul. That’s important when you’re in a relationship," she said. "You have to marry your best friend. What’s better than being able to have sex with your best friend?"
