Lala Kent has been sober for over six months. On last night’s reunion for ‘Vanderpump Rules,’ she opened up about her lowest point and how she came back from rock bottom.
Andy Cohen took some time to address Kent’s sobriety while reviewing her behavior this season. There were multiple instances where she claimed that she wasn’t drinking anymore only to go back to it.
Apparently, it took a family vacation for her to realize she had a severe problem on her hands.
“I went with my family and Rand’s family to Disney World and I was drunk four days straight from morning until night. I get on the plane. I’m face-chugging out of a bottle, and the next morning I woke up and said, ‘I will never live this way again,’ and I reached out and got help.”
Lala has been notorious for her drunken behavior especially after yelling at Kristen Doute when they were enemies at a party. Her problem got worse when she suffered the heartbreaking loss of her father.
The actress regularly attends AA meetings. The reality star celebrated her six-month milestone on April 22 with an Instagram post.
“Today, I celebrate 6 months of sobriety. I know I talk about this often, but y’all … I still can’t believe it. I feel the need to share my story because I know I’m not the only one out there suffering from this. It’s not an easy path I’ve chosen, but I chose it because it was between one thing, and my life. I take it one day at a time. I celebrate each day that I go through in a clear state of mind, & the next day I wake up with the same goal: stay clear. … I’m feeling blessed.”
Her fiance Randall Emmett posted his own congratulatory message the same day. Hopefully, Lala stays on the path of sobriety.
