There's only a few weeks left until Season 8 of Vanderpump Rules debuts. And in addition to a handful of new SURvers and cast additions popping up, Lala Kent's fiance, Randall Emmett, will finally appear on the show, as was teased in the trailer which debuted over BravoCon weekend back in November.
Lala took to Instagram to tease his big debut this January. "It’s f--king happening. All the begging I’ve done has paid off. Rand is officially a Bravolebrity," she wrote. "I love you, babyyyy. Thank you for stepping into my world."
Randall also had thoughts on the matter: "Oh boy, she asked me for years and I finally caved, does this make me a Bravolebrity?"
So, how did it finally happen? “She had to do a lot of begging," Randall told Us Weekly recently. "Here’s the thing, for three seasons she asked politely slash begged, and then we got to a point where we decided, she said, ‘Look please, it’ll be a nice thing to show who we really are.’ And … Lala gets her way. There you go. They make assumptions. But I think it was nice for us to just have some of our moments, and even though it was completely foreign and uncomfortable [for me] on every level, but I’m with my partner and my best friend so she made it OK and bearable. The best part is it will be nice to open up a little bit and show people how we are and take away the mystique. So, I’m petrified but excited that people get to see us.”
And Lala told Page Six last month, she's just excited for people to get some insight into her relationship with her longtime partner.
“You’ll actually see quite a bit of [my relationship]. I have no idea [why he caved in]," she said. “I have no idea, but I honestly think since last season he was like, ‘We need to show people what our relationship is really like.' Because I’m the type of person, I make jokes about like blowjobs and BJs on the PJ — that’s just my sense of humor. I’m all talk. No, no bite. I think now people will be like, ‘Oh, my gosh.’ Our dynamic is totally aligned. We mesh perfectly together. And that’s all I want people to see is like, this is who I am with my partner.”
