Lala Kent Says She ‘Had a Lot of Fun’ on First Date After Randall Emmett Split
In a Galentine’s Day-themed live stream for Amazon Live Tuesday, the 31-year-old Vanderpump Rules said she enjoyed her recent group date. She did not disclose the man’s identity, however.
“It was amazing. I had a lot of fun,” she said. “I know I’m definitely not ready to date just one person. I want to continue having fun and that’s what it is.”
Added Kent, “He was very fun to look at, by the way. I was like wow, look at that jawline. Good for you. I was like, ‘Damn,’ that jawline. Very into it.”
Kent also revealed a major rule she’s implementing for her dating life going forward. “I will never welcome someone into my life again without a full background check. I mean in-depth,” she said.
“I got to see what your credit is, I need to know your family history, I need to know everything you’ve been involved with. I’m going deep,” the mom of one continued. “I now have this PI guy who I just randomly send people to like, ‘Hey, before I go anywhere with this person, I’m going to need to know his story.’ [I’m] damaged, I guess. Who knows? I am not doing what I did back then.”
Kent and Emmett, 50, got engaged in September 2018 but they postponed their 2020 wedding to sometime in 2022 due to the coronavirus pandemic. The pair who welcomed daughter Ocean in March split in October 2021.
After the split, Kent has repeatedly accused the film producer of cheating on her.
Recently, the reality star opened up about her decision to start dating again and why she wanted to first do so in a group setting.
“It’s a group date. I’ve said on my podcast a million times I’m not ready to go and date, but I feel like this will ease me in because it’s a group setting,” she said in a previous Amazon Live chat.
“He is very tall. He is built — like Superman — and has a lot of tattoos. And I like that,” she shared. “He’s gentle. I’m very excited!”
