By Cynthia Robinson

Lala Kent recently moved into a home in the San Fernando Valley after living in an apartment in Los Angeles, California. In addition to sharing the details of the beautiful space (more on that below), the Vanderpump Rules cast member recently clarified her reasoning for moving after speculation she transitioned to the area to be on The Valley

How to Watch

"Let me be very clear," Lala began on the May 13 episode of her podcast, Give Them Lala. "I bought my house in the valley because it's all I could afford. I would have liked to have been in the Beverly Hills flats, bitch, but I can't afford it...yet." 

Lala continued: "I did not move to the valley because I want to be on The Valley. I moved there because that's what I could afford."

Details About Lala Kent's Vacation Home in Palm Springs

In addition to purchasing a new home in the Valley, Lala is keeping her vacation property in Palm Springs, perfect for getting away from the chaos of LA with her little one, Ocean Kent Emmett. In a recent interview, Lala opened up to NYLON about her Palm Springs abode, detailing her favorite finds in the area. 

Lala revealed she typically leaves the Valley on Thursday afternoon to make it to the Palm Springs VillageFest held on Thursday nights. "There's something about Palm Springs where, as soon as you see the windmills when you're driving in, you can finally breathe," she told the outlet.

Lala also noted she loves getting brunch at Wilma & Frieda's and visiting the Desert Hills Premium Outlets for shopping.

Additionally, Lala said she and Ocean love hanging out at the pool in their backyard, which is understandable, considering the stunning view of the mountains
