Lala Explains Why She Regrets Sending *That* Text on the VPR Premiere: "Had I Known..."

Find out why Lala Kent wishes she "would've never reached out" to Rachel Leviss.

By Allison Crist

Lala Kent sent an empathetic text to Rachel Leviss on the Season 11 premiere of Vanderpump Rules, but it turns out that she's come to regret this decision. 

How to Watch

Watch Vanderpump Rules on Bravo Tuesdays at 8/7c and next day on Peacock. Catch up on the Bravo app.  

She explained why on Episode 12 of the Vanderpump Rules After Show, which aired April 16.

Where do Lala Kent and Rachel Leviss stand today?

After the events of Vanderpump Rules Season 11, Episode 12, Lala expressed her belief on the Vanderpump Rules After Show that Rachel is "living in de-lu-lu land" by downplaying her (prior) friendship with Ariana Madix.

"I think she said that to make herself feel better about her actions," Lala said, adding, "I would've never reached out to her had I known that that's what she was gonna go and do."

Lala was, of course, referencing the message she sent Rachel after speaking with Lisa Vanderpump.

What did Lala Kent text Rachel Leviss?

At the beginning of Vanderpump Rules Season 11, Lala texted Rachel in-part: "I know that I'm, like, the last person you expected to hear from, but I hope that you're doing OK. I don't know if you're back in LA or not, but I'd like to have a conversation with you at some point if you're open to that. I hope to talk to you soon."

Lala later stated on Watch What Happens Live with Andy Cohen in January that Rachel never responded to the text.

Why did Lala reach out to Rachel?

Lala told Lisa that she had been "feeling a lot of different ways" about the fallout from Tom Sandoval's affair. "What I can relate to is feeling isolated and feeling like the person who has made you feel like they're the only one... you have nothing," Lala explained. 

"I know what it's like to have a man in front of you painting a beautiful picture, saying, 'You're the one for me, you're my soulmate,'" she continued in a confessional interview. "And you see what your future could be with this person, and you're willing to f-cking risk it all."

Responded Lisa, "I'm happy to see that you're not as rigid in your position."
