Lala Kent Is In A New WWII Movie, And Here’s Everything We Know

If you know Lala Kent at all (which I clearly do on a close personal level after watching her on my TV screen for the past three-ish years), you probably know her as the Vanderpump Rules hostess with an affinity for private jets and a special relationship with Tupac. There’s no denying that Lala has had a very successful few years: she launched a makeup line, cracked 1M Instagram followers, and got engaged to her super-rich producer boyfriend, Randall Emmett. One perk of dating Randall is the boost he’s apparently offered Lala’s acting career. In 2018, Lala starred in The Row, a 2018 sorority-horror movie that Randall produced, and which is already green-lit for a sequel. Recently, Lala has been posting on Instagram that she’s acting in a new movie, but it’s not another horror flic. Lala Kent’s new movie is a WWII drama set in Weimar Germany called Axis Sally. And yes, it’s produced by Randall. Oh boy. Here’s what we know about Lala Kent’s new movie.

It’s Based On A True Story

Honestly, I have no idea why Randall or Lala were drawn to this particular story, but here we go. Axis Sally is based on the story of a woman called Mildred Gillars, an American broadcaster who disseminated German propaganda from Berlin during WWII. After the war, (spoilers) Mildred is captured by the U.S., convicted of treason, and sentenced to “ten to thirty” years imprisonment (which is incidentally the same amount of time I will remain in grad school). Mildred’s story is definitely not the “brave gentile saves and hides endangered Jews” heroic tale we’ve come to expect from WWII movies and literature, that’s for sure.

Now, before you freak out, Lala isn’t playing the lead—she’s playing the assistant to one of the prosecutors in Gillars’ case. Mildred Gillars (aka Axis Sally) is played by Meadow Williams. I’d never heard of Meadow Williams before researching this, so I gave her a quick Google. Her personal website describes her as a “remarkable young actress from the farmlands of Tennessee,” which sounds to me like the set-up for a porno, but okay. There’s also some fascinating information about her legal troubles with her late husband’s family. (TL;DR his kids think she faked his will to get more money, which honestly sounds like a more interesting story than Axis Sally.) The meanest best description I could find for Meadow Williams is from the Daily Mail, and it labels her a “D-list actress branded a gold digger.” So, a WWII drama about a distributor of Nazi propaganda, in which both of the cast members we know of so far are known for reality TV and (allegedly) gold-digging. What could go wrong?

In case you’re curious, here’s a picture of Meadow Williams in her full Weimar Germany-era getup, sitting in a courtroom that I have seen no less than one thousand times on Lala’s Instagram story in the past week. (I would think that violates some sort of NDA or waiver they would have signed, but apparently not?)

Happy birthday to this pretty lady. Meadow, you have beauty and a heart and soul to match. I’m so thankful for your friendship. Have the best day ever♥️ @meadow.williams Ps. She is slaying it as Axis Sally. Game Over.

Very Random Celebs Are Involved

First, as you already know, Lala’s fiancé, Randall Emmett, is producing the movie. He posted a kind-of cute Instagram about it recently, featuring Lala in the outfit I now suspect she wears for the entire movie, given the number of Instagram stories and pictures I’ve seen it in. (I say the Instagram is kind of cute because there are TWO typos. It’s not even a long caption.)

@lalakent proud of you and this role that your crushing from the 1940s they all going to be blown away!!

A post shared by Randall Emmett (@randallemmettfilms) on

Also, can we discuss how Lala looks like Jaime Lannister here??

Jaime Lannister

Tell me I’m wrong. I’ll wait.

While I’d always thought Randall just kind of threw money behind different productions and that’s how he earned his “producer” title, it turns out he actually has a production company: MoviePass Films. Yep, like the app. IMO, this explains why Randall’s movies keep tanking (Gotti, anyone?)these people are not good at business!!

Also involved in this movie: Kate Bosworth, who you should know as the girl everyone had a crush on in the ‘90s. (If you don’t know who she is, you’re too young and I hate you.) Her main and/or only involvement seems to be the fact that her husband, Michael Polish, is the director, but that hasn’t stopped her from accompanying them to every set location and Instagramming the sh*t out of the whole thing.

First Khloé Kardashian, now Kate Bosworth… people in Hollywood really like Lala.

On the bright side, it’s nice to see Lala diversifying her friend group. The list of random celebs involved with this movie continues with Al Pacino, a very serious A-list actor, and then someone named Alexa Dellanos. Dellanos has 1.1M Instagram followers, but I can find out literally zero information about her other than the fact that she was once spotted with boyfriend and graffiti artist Alec Monopoly, who I’ve also never heard of. If anyone can tell me what she does, how her waist is so small, and why she’s in a movie with Al Pacino, I am eagerly accepting suggestions.

This Isn’t Lala’s Only Dramatic Role

While Lala’s not exactly known for her serious genre work, it turns out Axis Sally isn’t the only drama she’s filmed this year. She’s also appearing in Vault, a 2019 crime drama set in the ‘70s.
How I’m picturing Lala’s role in Vault:

In case you were wondering, I trawled extensively and could not find Randall’s name in connection to Vault, so it’s nice to know she’s not exclusively working on his sets. While I personally didn’t love The Row (you can read my review here), I have to assume the fact that it’s getting a sequel means enough people did like it (or at least watched it). And while I would’ve expected Lala to go in a more “designing handbags” direction with her 30s, I guess I’m here for her “attempt at an Oscar” years instead. Truly, the year we see Lala Kent get nominated for an acting award is the year we know we’ve entered the sunken place.

What did I miss about Axis Sally? The movie has a $25 million budget (that’s a lot of PJ rides!), and is shooting in Puerto Rico. So when you see Lala posting incessantly from Puerto Rico for the next few weeks, you’ll know why. (JK, you’d know why anyway—she mentions in every single IG Story that she’s on her way to set. It’s almost like…she really, really wants people to know she’s in a movie??) So, if we all survive 2019, we can look forward to watching Lala Kent confer with Al Pacino, Instagram models, and background actors dressed in Nazi gear in 2020. Or, you know, not watch it. No one will judge you.

4 People (and One Dog) That Prove We’re Too Dumb To Own Guns

Pretty much every person I’ve ever met is an idiot, and call me old fashioned, but I just don’t think idiots should be able to own guns. Much like family gatherings and sobriety, idiots and guns just don’t mix well. But this is America, where any idiot can own a gun, and gun accidents are a legitimate problem. G bless. Idiots owning guns often leads to bad things happening, if you can believe. Accidental shootings are v. much a thing, and they only further prove my point that men everyone should not be trusted with a gun. In 2017, there were 2,031 “unintentional shootings” in the U.S., and so far in 2018 there have been 790 instances of someone shooting a gun by accident. Here’s a list of dum-dums that accidentally shot themselves or someone else. Fun!

The FBI Agent Who Literally Busted A Move On The D-Floor

You probs heard about this one in the new recently, as it made quite a splash online. Agent Chad Bishop was at a bar and Denver and casually decided to do a backflip on the dance floor, causing his gun to fall out of his pants. He then went to pick up the gun and accidentally shot an innocent bystander in the leg. These are the people who are in charge of our safety. Cool cool cool. Anyway, don’t drink and backflip while carrying a gun? I’m no expert, but seems like basic common sense.

This Dude Who Shot Himself In The Dick

This feels like karma for buying a gun to feel better about your tiny lil’ peen. I know what you’re wondering: did this happen in Florida? And the answer is obviously yes. Cedrick Jelks sat on a loaded gun in his car and shot himself sqaure in the D. He had the gun illegally, and was charged for that. After shooting himself. In. The. Dick. Rough day. But then again, sucks to suck.

Some Moron Shot Himself In A Movie Theater

A man in Kansas who had just purchased his conceal and carry shot himself in the thigh during a movie. Obv everyone in the theater freaked the fuck out, because in the nightmare we live in and theater shootings are a thing we have to be legitimately afraid of. Luckily it was not a mass shooter, just an idiot with a gun.

This Islamophobic Idiot Shot  Himself At A Gun Range

Hm, looks like I have to say it again: sucks to suck, bitch!!! This fucking idiot was at a “Muslim-free gun range” which feels like something that should for sure be illegal. How is an institution full of racist people with guns allowed to be a thing? Anyway, he dropped his gun and shot himself in the wrist. Oopsies!

This Dog Accidentally Shot His Owner

Hahahahahahahaahahahaha. Oh man. I needed this. A Wyoming man’s dog stepped on his loaded rifle in the back of his truck and fired it. Seems dumb to have a loaded gun 1) in the back of your truck, 2) around your dog, and 3) just in general. I fucking love dogs.

Luckily in all of these instances the person (and dog) involved recovered, but not everyone is so lucky. On average 96 Americans are killed with guns per day, and there are nearly 13,000 gun homicides annually. For every one person killed with guns in the U.S., two more are injured, and seven children or teens are killed with guns on average in the U.S. every day. On average, 50 women per year are shot to death by intimate partners, and the presence of domestic violence increases a woman’s risk of being killed wit ha gun by five times. Black men are 13 times more likely than white men to be shot and killed with guns, and the U.S. has by far the most gun homicides per 1000,000 residents of any western nation.

5 Savage Moments From The CNN Town Hall On Gun Control

We now legally have to take back any mean or snarky thing we’ve ever said to or about teenagers and hand them the keys because they are literally driving our country to higher ground. Last night there was a CNN town hall called Students Stand Up where survivors from Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School shooting spoke with elected officials and  rifle shills NRA representatives about gun control. The teens harnessed their powers of unapologetic and acerbic wit to drag these grown adults who think gym teachers who can’t keep the teachers lounge microwave clean should have assault rifles. Here were the highlights.

Marco Rubio Getting Booed

Marco Rubio has the gall to tell a father whose daughter was gunned down last week that guns aren’t the problem. The crowd reacts appropriately.

Marco Rubio gets booed for refusing to ban assault weapons. Absolutely amazing.

Dana Loesch Getting Booed

In a shocking turn of events, NRA spokeswoman Dana Loesch turns on law enforcement saying it is their responsibility to keep schools safe. Never thought I’d see the day that the NRA is going after cops. The crowd, once again, boos.

Loesch is booed off the stage after she closes the CNN forum by arguing that mass shootings are a law enforcement problem, not a guns problem

A Cop Call The NRA On Their Bullshit

The cop obviously has to retaliate after being thrown under the bus by the NRA and tells Dana Loesch she’s tripping. The crowd changes tune and instead of booing, cheers!

Broward County Sheriff Scott Israel gets a huge ovation after he tells Dana Loesch that “you’re not standing up for until you say, I want less weapons.”

This Dad Gets “Brutally Honest”

The same dad called Rubio and Trump “pathetically weak” and his brutal honesty is making my knees seriously weak. I could watch Rubio’s face, wishing he could evaporate, till the end of time.

Marco Rubio gets eaten alive here. Absolutely amazing.

This Musical Message

Okay so this isn’t really a “savage” moment. Unless you considering being good at singing savage, which I low-key do. Anyway, like true fucking stars, these teens were like, “We have an audience not only will we drag politicians but we will sing.” That is the mark of a true icon. Get these teens a record deal. And uh, take note, Fergie.

???? “You may have brought the dark, but together we will shine the light” ????
