'Crazy Kristen' Is Here!

If you've ever dreamed of flying on a private jet, you're going to want to take some notes from Lala Kent. In this week's episode of Vanderpump Rules, Lala rounded up the ladies to take them on a special girls' trip to Solvang, California... by way of PJ, of course. The trip started out as a classy affair — but it didn't take long for things to take a bit of a sloppy turn. (Yes, you really did watch Kristen Doute pluck a plant off the side of the road and eat it, thinking it was lavender.) 

In the latest enhanced episode of Vanderpump Rules: Pumped Up, producers of the show are back once again to spill all the tea on what actually went down behind the scenes. Keep scrolling to read about everything you missed that happened during the wine tasting trip. 

The girls almost went to Utah

When deciding where to take the girls, Lala almost chose to go to her home state of Utah... though she ultimately decided that Solvang was the best place for them to go. 

Despite being sober, Lala chose wine tasting because she knew the girls would love it

Producers say Lala is "very generous," and even though she made the personal choice to be sober, she chose to go wine tasting because "she wanted to pick something she knew the rest of the girls would enjoy." 

Lala takes a PJ about six times a month

If you think Lala is a seasoned PJ passenger, you'd be right. Pump Rules producers say that on average, Lala flies private about six times a month. Her least favorite part about flying commercial? Spending too much time going through security. 

Producers have learned to spot the signs of Crazy Kristen

It's a well-known fact among the SUR family that Kristen isn't the best traveler. Producers say that when she gets travel anxiety, "she doesn't think before she acts." They've also trained themselves to see the signs of "Crazy Kristen" before she totally loses control — some of which include her getting "very manic" and "talking a mile a minute." 

Scheana brings Love Frog with her everywhere she travels

Producers say that Love Frog was actually a gift to Scheana Shay from childhood best friend, Gina. Gina got Scheana's present from a hospital gift shop where she was being treated for cancer in 2007. Unfortunately, Gina passed away shortly after she turned 23, and Scheana has taken Love Frog with her everywhere she's traveled since then. 

Katie Maloney-Schwartz is well aware of Kristen's bad travel habits, so she did her best to keep her classy for as long as possible. How? "No vodka shots before wine tasting!"

Stassi said the basic bitch of wine is Pinot Grigio

Kristen may think that Merlot is the "basic bitch of wine," but Stassi Schroeder begs to differ — she thinks Pinot Grigio deserves the title. (And if you agree, you'll love her latest business venture with Kristen and Katie.)

Lala's biggest worry during the trip was that Kristen would fall on her face

Kristen may not have fallen on her face yet... but watch the preview of next week's episode of Vanderpump Rules below to see if Lala's fear comes true.
