Lala Kent Shockingly Sticks Up For Tom Sandoval
When the Season 10 Vanderpump Rules reunion rolled around, Lala Kent went after Tom Sandoval. She had venom in her when speaking to him and Rachel Leviss. After he had cheated on Ariana Madix, not just with Leviss but a few times, Kent was fuming. She was clearly out for blood and it worked between her and James Kennedy not letting up on Sandoval. It was quite questionable how everyone would be able to co-exist for the next season. Then, Kent was seen hugging Sandoval during filming for Season 11 which raised eyebrows. Yet, fans were reminded that this is a job and the cast was doing what they needed to.
Filming was over at the end of summer and the opening credits were just done. Now it is BravoCon weekend and the entire Vanderpump Rules cast has gathered in Vegas. They did a panel as a group and that included Tom Sandoval. According to TMZ, Sandoval was booed when he walked out on the stage for the panel. Despite this, he had one ally in his corner and it was someone no one would have expected. It was Lala Kent who rushed to his defense.
As they were doing the question and answer portion of the panel, Kent stepped up and let the audience know the facts. She explained they needed to respect Tom Sandoval for even showing up after all people had said about him. Even though fans are constantly hating and making him feel awful about himself, Lala noted that Sandoval was still there, regardless of the negativity. He has cried about the treatment he received after the cheating scandal on Special Forces and was then called “pathetic.”
A New Season
Another interesting thrill and shock that happened at BravoCon was the Season 11 Pump Rules premiere date. The show will be back in January 2024 and it showed Ariana Madix going up against Tom Sandoval. At the same time, Lisa Vanderpump is speaking to his fellow cast about how he has nobody.
As to how Lala Kent will react to him come the Season 11 reunion is yet to be seen. However, it does appear that she is now becoming much more of a mama bear and has to respect that is not hiding out like he could be. More so, she wants others to see this, as well.
