Lala Claims the Way Ariana Described Daniel Was “So Wild,” “Very Different” from Reality

By Jamontae Hickman

Lala Kent may have initially called Ariana Madix’s boyfriend, Daniel Wai, “a f-cking square” before she interrogated him on the Season 11 finale of Vanderpump Rules (which aired on May 7); however, she is now refuting her snarky comment after admitting that Ariana described him “very different[ly]” ahead of their meetup.

How to Watch

Watch Vanderpump Rules on Peacock and the Bravo app.  

The Give Them Lala author addressed why on the latest episode of the Vanderpump Rules After Show.

How did Ariana Madix detail Daniel to Lala Kent?

“The way Ariana made him sound, it was so wild to me,” Lala began, as she referenced her conversation with Katie Maloney about Daniel not being happy with Tom Sandoval for his past mistakes. “I had never met him, and she was like, ‘You know, he’s a personal trainer, and he does not f-ck around.'” 

Lala mentioned that she decided to confront Daniel about Ariana’s remarks, and his response surprised her. “I ask him about it, and he’s like, 'No [Sandoval] didn’t do anything to me, like I would have no problem saying hey, what’s up, but this is my girlfriend, and it was pretty f-cked up to hurt her, but now I get to be with her,’” she recalled. 

Ariana Madix wears a silver mesh dress with her arm around Daniel Wai while at a Beyonce Renaissance Tour Pre-Party.

As for Lala’s reaction to Daniel’s answer at the time? She shared: “OK, very different than what Ariana said like he’s actually pretty normal.”
