‘Vanderpump Rules’ star Lala Kent continued to rip co-stars Raquel Leviss and Tom Sandoval during their months-long affair during an Amazon Live on Tuesday.
Careful to avoid getting in trouble with Bravo for ‘spilling too much tea’, an admittedly ‘exhausted’ and ‘brain-fried’ Kent described the secret lovers as ‘two people who couldn’t be further from this they claimed to be”. noting that she “never liked either of them”.
She added that it “feels good that everyone feels the same” as she does after Sandoval’s “mask drop”.
As for how his recent ex, Ariana Madix, is holding up, the Give Them Lala Beauty founder explained, “Ariana moves with the motion of the ocean, you know? She is doing as well as one would expect.
“She’s got a really good support team behind her,” she continued, admitting that the two “haven’t been very close for a while.”
“I think I’m being a little abrupt on her right now. I’m very intense and I’m not sure yet if that’s the headspace she’s in,” Kent said. “I think I could be more beneficial when more time has passed.”
She added that those in the ‘Vanderpump Rules’ cast who “had differences” — like Katie Maloney and Scheana Shay — put everything aside to “gather around (their) friend.”
As for how Shay — who was closest to Leviss — is coping with the fallout, Kent shared, “She’s going through it. It’s very difficult when you trust people like that and start thinking about people differently.
However, she has remained mum on rumors that the former friends’ “heated confrontation” turned physical, saying she “spoke to Scheana, and it was never brought up.”
When asked what she thought of Sandoval’s statement on the matter, which included an apology to her business partners and employees, but not Madix, the mother of one said: “My thoughts are: tell us you’re a narcissist without telling us. re a narcissist. It’s so manual for me!
Kent also said that none of his castmates are “Team Sandoval” at the moment, with the possible exception of his best friend and business partner, Tom Schwartz.
“I tried to tell you all that he is weak. I said it first. Is not it ?
She added that she doesn’t think there’s a return of this for Sandoval or Leviss, as she thinks they both have flawed characters.
Additionally, Kent said “VPR” matriarch Lisa Vanderpump “is very upset about it all.”
Earlier today, Kent slammed Leviss for sending her a legal letter asking the cast to remove a sexually explicit video of the former beauty pageant queen she may have obtained.
The video in question — which Sandoval allegedly recorded during a steamy FaceTime call with Leviss — shows how his girlfriend of nearly 10 years found out he was cheating on her last Wednesday.
“Raquel, tell your little Mickey Mouse lawyer that if he has any stuff to send, he can send it to my lawyer.” Same with the rest of my friends and the cast, okay? Kent lashed out in a since-deleted Instagram Story video, claiming Leviss’ attorney contacted her through her “personal email.”
Acknowledging that the 28-year-old Leviss is “pretty new to the game,” Kent added, “Look what you’ve done with your fucking 15 minutes.”
Last Friday, after the announcement of the alliance between Sandoval and Leviss, the host of the podcast “Give Them Lala” told Sandoval, 39, to “shut up” and put her eyeshadow palette on sale immediately eye shadow inspired by Leviss.
Kent was just one of many Vanderpump employees to slam the duo over their affair, which we’re told “started last summer.”
After seeing the aforementioned video of Leviss popping up on Sandoval’s phone, Madix learned that the two had “communicated inappropriately for months” and quickly dumped the co-owner of Schwartz & Sandy.
A source told Page Six that Sandoval and Leviss’ affair included sleepovers at his joint Los Angeles home with Madix “when Ariana was out of town.”

Their co-star James Kennedy, who was previously engaged to Leviss, alleged the two would hook up even when Madix, 37, was home and “sleeping”.
We’re told the pair – who’ve been wearing matching necklaces for the past year – now “want to be together” and had apparently been planning “for weeks” to tell Madix about their romance.
“Ariana was blindsided by the cheating,” a source tells Us, adding that she had “no idea there were any issues” in her relationship and felt both “heartbroken” and “betrayed”.
Leviss has yet to speak publicly about the situation.
Page Six can confirm that Bravo is filming the final drama to be included in Season 10, which is currently airing.
Insiders close to the production tell us that Sandoval and Madix discussed her affair on camera and that she felt “gassed” by the conversation.
Meanwhile, we’re told Sandoval and Leviss “kissed on camera” in their first post-“Scandoval” scene, filmed at the latter’s apartment.
