Holy sh*t. Dispelling rumors once and for all that she is just a sugar baby, Lala Kent and Randall Emmett are engaged as of last night. First of all, I would like to say congratulations to them. But second of all, and more truthfully, I wish celebrities who are younger than me would stop getting engaged when I can’t even find a guy who is interested in seeing me long enough to meet my friends. Where are all these women meeting these men who are not deathly afraid of commitment, and can a b*tch get thrown an invite every once in a while?
Anyway, Lala announced her engagement on Instagram Sunday afternoon. Initially, when scrolling through my timeline, I saw the carousel of photos of her and Randall and thought to myself, “Oh, just another display of PDA between Lala and Randall. Nothing new here. I’ll keep it moving.” And then I read the caption, and I actually said out loud, “Holy f*ck.”
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. @randallemmettfilms @people @richierichny https://people.com/tv/vanderpump-rules-lala-kent-engaged/
“Last night was the best night of my entire life,” Lala writes in the caption. “I got engaged to the man of my dreams. I get to call this amazing human my fiancé!” (Although I really hate this new trend of calling people you know intimately “humans”, I give extra props to Lala for using the correct form of fiancé.)
Lala tells PEOPLE that Randall proposed on her 28th birthday. PEOPLE reports that Randall set up a screen to play Friends, Lala’s favorite show. Then the screen went black and showed a montage of their memories together, before Randall got down on one knee and proposed.
So now we have another Vanderpump wedding on the horizon, after Jax and Brittany got engaged earlier this summer. I can’t wait to see if we will have a Bride Wars-style fight over whose wedding will get more screen time, and to see if Lala will refer to Randall as her “man” in her wedding vows.
