'Vanderpump Rules' star Lala Kent says 'yes' to longtime, controversy-ridden boyfriend, Randall Emmett
Although the two apparently started seeing each other when Randall Emmett was divorced, Lala Kent was accused several times of dating a 'married' man.
'Vanderpump Rules' actress, Lala Kent, is officially engaged to her boyfriend, producer Randall Emmett. The 'Lone Survivor' producer went down on his knees to propose to the actress during a romantic trip to Cabo San Lucas, Mexico, at the Esperanza An Auberge Resort, where the couple also celebrated Kent's 28th birthday.
Both shared the news of their engagement, which was initially reported by People, on their Instagram handles. Kent posted two pictures which show the couple gazing up at the sky lit up with fireworks and later kissing underneath the bright lights.
In one of the posts, which Kent captioned "I can’t stop smiling. I’m a fiancé!!! I love you, Rand! Thank you for taking care of my heart and soul everyday. You will always be number 1♥️ @randallemmettfilms @people", the couple can be seen staring at the private fireworks which went off when Emmett popped the question.
Emmett put up three different posts of the night, and he mentions in each of them that Kent finally said "Yes". Kent also posted a series of images the next day which she captioned "Last night was the best night of my entire life. I got engaged to the man of my dreams. I get to call this amazing human my fiancé! An engagement last night, my birthday today, and every sign my dad could possibly send me to let me know he’s here. I’m the happiest girl in the world." Apparently, Emmett had sought Kent's father's blessings for the marriage shortly before his death in April.
At SiriusXM’s 'The Jenny McCarthy Show' the actress had revealed, "My mom told me that that Rand had asked my dad for my hand before he passed away. That makes me so happy because I am struggling with the fact that I won’t have a dad to see me have babies or get married. So it just means a lot to me that Rand did that before he passed.”
The two went official when they were first spotted together during New Year's last year, shortly after Emmett split with his wife, actress Ambyr Childers, in December. However, rumors of their dating had sparked much earlier when it was alleged that they were having a secret relationship when Emmett was still married to Childers. It certainly took a toll on Kent's career, who had to quit the Bravo reality series midway through the fifth season, while she had only joined the show in the fourth season in 2015. Her decision to quit the show came after she was accused by her co-stars of dating a married man. However, Kent did return for the Season 6 reunion.
