Lala Kent certainly is getting a lot of attention after she announced this week that she was exiting Vanderpump Rules. She confirmed to E! News that her time on the show was affecting her career and her relationship.
Much has been made of that mysterious boyfriend, who may or may not be married, but it looks like Kent really wants us to guess who he is. On The Tomorrow Show with Keven Undergaro on Thursday, she narrowed down who the guy might be.
He’s not an actor or a Hollywood executive, like many fans had guessed, but he is in the public eye.
Kent dropped the bomb about another reality show that would be perfect for her: “I think WAGs would be fun,” she revealed.
When pressed further about the topic, Kent gave a pretty good reason why her man wouldn’t show his face on the Bravo show.
“He has a lot of endorsement deals and a lot of things that, I’m sorry, he’s not going to screw up to appear on Vanderpump Rules,” she explained.
This bit of titillating news is going to send viewers scurrying to figure out who Kent’s boyfriend really is. Is he an athlete on a Los Angeles team? Or does he live in Los Angeles during the off-season?
She also didn’t mention what sport he might play, but he has to be a high-profile athlete who is good enough to garner endorsement deals. It could be anyone at this point.
Perhaps we should go ask Kent’s former co-star James Kennedy, who not only knows the identity of the mystery man but has even met him.
“James knows…they have met…it was funny because James and I have hooked up before, so my guy kind of teased him about it.” she shared. “My man gets nervous when I go with him by myself because we hooked up before, so I think he thinks that that would continue. But it would never. Clearly, it wasn’t as great as we both thought it would be.”
While Kent’s boyfriend might be happy his girlfriend is safe with Kennedy, we wonder if he’s concerned his identity might be revealed sooner rather than later. He’s been talked about so much that tabloids are probably sniffing around Kent to see who she is dating.
It does seem like the two are pretty serious. Not only did Kent quit Vanderpump Rules, she also stopped drinking after a verbal altercation with him.
“I started being very, very vicious to my boyfriend. And it was not OK. So, I went on a vacation with friends — freaked out at him and I don’t remember,” Kent said. “And the next day my mom flew out, begged me to go to one AA meeting. And I was there.”
We are salivating to find out who this guy is, but for now, we have to deal with the departure of Kent from the show. She’s adamant that she’s not coming back.
“I said, unless you want to fire the whole cast and just have me, I will not be returning.”
