Lala Kent and James Kennedy were once the closest of pals. Heck, they even collaborated on a song together. But as Season 5 of Vanderpump Rules has rolled on, the onetime besties are definitely feeling the heat -- and are very much at odds.
As Lala shared on Watch What Happens Live with Andy Cohen, she isn't interested in having James in her life right now (clip above). And she later stopped by The Daily Dish HQ where she elaborated more on their friendship status -- as well as that infamous fight about pasta and the rumors regarding James and Logan. So pour yourself a cup of tea, but also clutch it because Lala is here to spill it all for you.
1. James Kennedy
"I consider myself as someone, like when you drink a fine wine on a yacht or on a global express, so it's a luxury to be my friend because I'm a damn good one and I'm not gonna come for him. I'm not gonna spread rumors or even let his name come out of my mouth in a very mean way. I will never voluntarily be around that person. He's just there. I'll let him go about his life, and if he wants to drag my name through the mud, great. But I don't have the time to deal with peasants," she said, noting that speaking about her relationship with her boyfriend was her breaking point. "No, never... there's no coming back from it."
"It's so weird because I honestly, when I brought the pasta thing up, it was to make light of the conversation that was about to go down. And it actually turned into something that was probably bigger than the conversation that was about to go down," Lala said. "I probably should have just let the conversation happen."
And then the speculation about the pasta began to hit the streets: "When people started thinking pasta was a code word for something specific, I was actually really offended because I've worked very hard to maintain a healthy lifestyle... I kind of had this feeling of disgust because like I've said I take pride in the fact that I've never touched that substance in my entire life. I'd say I was offended by it. It was legitimately about pasta -- that's what's so sad... I had a 45-minute conversation with Raquel [Leviss] that she doesn't even remember that night. So I'm pretty sure she doesn't remember her pasta being there at all." (FYI: James definitely has his own take on their relationship.)
3. The Logan Rumors
"I obviously have said this before: I think Logan would have liked for there to be something more. If anyone who has the pleasure of knowing Logan knows that he is the most incredible friend you can ever have, so I had never seen. We were like the Three Musketeers, you know? So I had never seen anything where I thought that it was weird, that they were hooking up. Nothing. But like I always say: Their business is their business. It doesn't affect my life. It doesn't affect anyone's life. If that were happening, who cares? I don't think it did, but again, do you, boo. Do you."
