Here's How Lala Kent and Scheana Shay Became Friends Again
The #PumpRules pal breaks down how she reconciled with the SURver.
Reunited and it feels so good. That's Lala Kent and Scheana Shay's motto these days. After having a falling out earlier this season on Vanderpump Rules, the bond between the two women is now stronger than ever.
"Scheana and I are close. I'm with her a lot. I was just at her boyfriend's house for his roommate's birthday and we talk every single day," Lala confirmed to The Daily Dish. The twosome sparked attention that they had reconciled after they began popping up on each other's social media feeds recently following a friend break-up, which took place when Scheana decided she needed to put her other friendships first. "I don't really know if they're not down for the cause," Lala added on Watch What Happens Live with Andy Cohen about how Scheana's inner circle of friends feels about the reconciliation.
As for how they reconnected, Lala broke it down for The Daily Dish.
"She had approached me about me doing music with Shay and she was not OK with it. And the way she came at me the first time, I was on defense mode," Lala recalled. "She ended up texting our friend relaying the messages back and forth. My friend then said, 'Well, you're attacking her. Maybe go in and be a normal person.' And she did, [and] right then I said I won't work with him. There's a million people I can work with on music. And right there the ice was broken."
With their once-chilly relationship thawed, the floodgates to friendship opened right up. "And I started checking in on her ever so often 'cause I knew she was going through her divorce and then she just asked me to lunch one day and the rest is history," she said.
When Lala and Scheana did have their falling out, it was a hard break for the one-time SUR hostess, who had valued their friendship. "I've always loved her though," she said. "I feel like she just had a good heart. I think she was the one who probably hurt me the most when she cut me off because I'm like, 'I liked you. You were so fun.'"
Ariana Madix, who has recently also reconnected with Lala, addressed the two women putting their drama in the past. "I think Scheana and Lala are working on their friendship, and I think that Scheana is much more open-minded to the things about Lala that she always liked. I think that there is a lot of similarities between me, Scheana, and Lala," Ariana explained to us. "We share a lot of things in common, as far as bold personality traits and things we like to do for fun, aka we're all homebodies. So I think that Scheana was really holding herself back before because she was afraid of judgment from other people, and now she's more open-minded to a friendship with Lala."
In addition to rekindling the flames of their friendship, Scheana has made other big life decisions these last few months, confirming in November that she and Mike Shay were divorcing. It was surprising news to Lala.
"Yes because she was such a ride or die for him, so to hear the reasoning for why they parted ways — she's just such a good chick and she's so chill. I've seen her with her new man and I'm like, 'How could anyone do you wrong?'" Lala said. "You are the chillest person in the world. Then again, that's probably why it ended because you got to keep those men in check, man."-Additional reporting by Laura Rosenfeld
