Is Lala Really A Home-Wrecker? An In-Depth Investigation

Earlier this week, Lala Kent went public with Randall Emmett, her rumored formerly married boyfriend, by posting their first-ever selfie on Instagram. I would say “aww cute” when any couple becomes Instagram official, except for when one person in a relationship is a hot hostess, and the other is a toad encased in human skin. Since Lala began dating Randall while he was still legally married, she’s been called many things, like a home-wrecking whore (courtesy of Katie Maloney). But Lala insisted on this week’s episode that she is no such thing. So did Lala actually break up Randall’s marriage? I have been called upon by myself to investigate, and my findings are interesting, if I do say so myself.

According to E! News, while Randall Emmett and Ambyr Childers’ divorce was finalized on December 22, 2017, the couple were separated in 2015 and again in 2016. Vanderpump Rules season 5 aired on November 7, 2016. According to Scheana on our Betch Slapped podcast, Vanderpump Rules films over the summer—meaning that, in the summer of 2016, Randall and his wife could very much have been separated. Does that make it okay? Ehhh, I’m not going to play ethics police given the way I rang in the New Year/lead my life in general, but it’s dubious. Not to mention, how many times has a married guy lied to his mistress and said “We’re separated, it’s over, I’m going to leave my wife”? But is Lala the reason this marriage ended? Given that Lala was on Vanderpump Rules in 2015 and there was no mention of this married guy, and Emmett and Childers were already separated then anyway, it doesn’t look so cut-and-dry.

Furthermore, I stalked Ambyr Childers’ Instagram, and what I found was extremely interesting. And yes, I am pretty disgusted with myself for stalking an innocent woman’s Instagram account just because she is loosely associated with a castmember on a second-tier reality show I watch, but then again, her Instagram was public and extremely easy to find, so who’s the real victim here? So I looked at all 182 of this woman’s posts (I know, you don’t have to tell me), and you know what I didn’t find? A single picture of or with Randall. Now, I know that she could have done an Instagram purge, and/or some couples don’t feel the need to post their SO on social media (I am told), but still. It’s odd. 

And you know what else I found? A picture of Ambyr with some other dude who is decidedly not Randall. From the looks of it (aka the caption), she’s spending the year in Paris with this guy. And like, that wouldn’t mean anything, except for the comment that says “beautiful couple!”. And there’s another picture of them from a week ago with comments like, “You guys are the cutest!!!” and “great way to end the last chapter and start anew!” YEAH. So I’d say it looks like both Randall and Ambyr have moved on, although only one of them moved on to an age-appropriate SO. Four for you, Ambyr. You go, Ambyr.

So did Lala break up this marriage? Is she a home-wrecking whore? Should we stop judging hers and other people’s relationships from the outside? These answers and more, next time on “probably not but that’s not going to stop me.”
