During a recent episode of her podcast, the Vanderpump Rules cast member sounded off on the rumors that she got pregnant with her second child as a "storyline." She denied the accusations by comparing the rumors to the speculation that The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills diamond holder staged her split for the show. After some confusion from listeners, Lala clarified what she said on an episode of Teddi Mellencamp and Tamra Judge's podcast, Two Ts in a Pod.

"I was trying to say, because people were saying I staged my pregnancy for a storyline," Lala explained. "So I was saying, like, 'Yeah, and Kyle and Mauricio staged breaking up their entire family for a storyline.'"

Tamra wondered if Lala was "being condescending," and Ocean Kent Emmett's mom responded, "Yes."

"I need to be better..." Lala said about making parallels between her situation and that of others. "So, I just, that's what I was saying. I'm like, 'Yes, people in this industry are shaking up the entire dynamic of their family after 27 years and four children for a storyline one season.'"
