She has become one of the biggest stars of Vanderpump Rules ever since joining the cast back in 2015.
But now after six years, Lala Kent is considering a potential exit from the hit Bravo show.
On her podcast Give Them Lala, the reality star, 31, admitted she began contemplating a departure after shooting the season nine reunion.
‘I don’t know if that’s the space for me anymore’: Lala Kent is considering a potential exit from Vanderpump Rules after six years on the show
‘I’ve been on this show for six years. I’ve changed a lot as a person — no one can tell me otherwise,’ Lala began.
‘But after that reunion, I sat back and thought, “Is this the space for me anymore or do we need to do some soul-searching?” And who knows — there may not even be another season that comes out of this.’
Even if the show were to be renewed, Lala is not certain she would remain.
‘[If] tomorrow they call and say, “We’ve been picked up,” I would take a big pause because I don’t know if that’s the space for me anymore.’

The recent reunion also prompted Lala to reassess her friendships on the show after Raquel Leviss ended up being the only cast member to reach out to her after the reunion despite Kent being ‘visibly upset’ during filming.
The star, who recently split from her ex-fiancee Randall Emmett, described her state of mind at the time as ‘one of the darkest times I’ve been in since my dad passed away.’
Lala, who has been at odds with Raquel on the show, said it was ‘eye-opening’ not hearing from her other castmates.

‘That was very telling for me. I’m not saying that this group of my friends are bad people in any way. Just because I’m going through something doesn’t mean the world stops.
‘But I was visibly upset on the reunion, and for not one of them except for my little Bambi to reach out and say, “I just want to say I’m sorry for what you’re going through,” was, like I said, eye-opening.’
Though she was surrounded by her cast, Lala said she felt ‘a bit alone and isolated’ after filming the reunion.

In mid-October the Irishman producer had reportedly cheated on Lala during a work trip to Nashville, Tennessee while she remained at home with their daughter Ocean.
Kent recently admitted to having her ‘head in the sand’ in regards to warning signs about her relationship as she addressed their split and cheating allegations on a recent episode of her podcast, Give Them Lala .
‘I don’t know how the f**k I didn’t see a lot of this s**t,’ she confessed as she touched on his rumored infidelity, before divulging why she ultimately decided to ‘get the f**k out’ of the relationship.

Kent referenced the alleged cheating for the first time publicly after previously sharing on her podcast (which now no longer includes Randall) that she would ‘open up and share’ when she felt ‘more comfortable.’
‘I found out about the pictures of his name we shall not mention, and the Nashville girls,’ she explained on the podcast adding that it was the reason she decided to change her tattoo which read ‘Rand’ to ‘bRand new’ on the day of her book signing.
‘Unfortunately, for me, my head has been in the sand,’ Kent said about being oblivious to warning signs without elaborating. ‘I don’t know how the f**k I didn’t see a lot of this s**t.’
And she continued to say that she was ‘grateful’ to have realized the cracks in the relationship when she did before revealing how she knew it was time to call it quits.
‘I had my head in the sand for a really long time, but I’m grateful no matter what. What’s five years and some change versus what I would’ve been in.’
‘The second that I felt unsafe — I said this in therapy — I said, “The second I get a pit in my stomach, it’ll be a different conversation.” I got that pit and I got the f**k out,’ she explained. ‘No questions asked. Buh-bye.’
