She’s got something to say. Vanderpump Rules star Lala Kent came clean about her sobriety and how “proud” she is of her accomplishment — despite the haters in her DMs. The sober Bravo TV star shared a lengthy post on her Instagram feed, captioned simply with “♥️💃,” on September 18.
“My sobriety is something I’m proud of and work on everyday [sic]. I’ve never done cocaine nor were any substances, other than alcohol, involved in my decision to get sober,” the Utah born babe revealed in the post. “I pride myself on being open and honest about everything in my life, hopefully inspiring others and letting them know they are not alone.”
She made sure to address recent comments she’s fielded — undoubtedly from rapper 50 Cent, who came for the reality star and her hard sobriety work after she addressed the past feud between the “In Da Club” artist and her fiancé, producer Randall Emmett.
“The past couple days I have been slammed to say the very least. People have asked me how I’m maintaining keeping my head up … to me, it’s simple. I know Real Life from the illusion of social media,” she continued. “I know what it feels like to have your world crumble. Getting a phone call from your brother saying your dad has passed away … that is Earth-shattering. Being called names and being falsely accused of things … that is far from Earth-shattering.”
Finally, the reality TV starlet addressed the truth about cyberbullying … and that she stands in solidarity with anyone going through the kind of harassment she experienced.
“My mindset is something I’m grateful for — however, I can’t help but think about how many people are taking their own lives, daily, due to cyberbullying,” she concluded. “It is imperative that I tell you, you are not by yourself. I see you. I stand by you. I’m on your team. You are loved and make a difference in this world.”
Naturally, fans, followers and friends flocked to the emotional post to share words of encouragement and love for the star. “We know who you are. Xoxo,” wrote comedian Heather McDonald, while actress and friend Kate Bosworth chimed in with, “LOVE YOU LALA ❤️❤️❤️❤️.”
Looks like the sober sweetie has a lot of good folks in her life!
