Ariana Madix and Lala Kent’s feud continues. Vanderpump Rules Season 9 premiered on Tuesday night. As viewers already know, the two are no longer close. Lala previously called Ariana a “fair-weather” friend. In last night’s episode, Ariana was not happy to hear what Lala had to say about her.
The two had words at Scheana Shay’s party. Now, Ariana is feuding with the Pump Rules co-star on social media. She wishes that the Give Them Lala founder would move on from the past. In June 2020, Bravo fired Stassi Schroeder, Kristen Doute, Max Boyens, and Brett Caprioni.
Vanderpump Rules Season 9 feud thrives online
It looks like Ariana Madix and Lala Kent will get into it this season. Some fans think Lala will become the villain of this season. Ariana made it clear to her boyfriend Tom Sandoval that she’s no longer going to be the chill person out of the group. She’s going to make her feelings known to her castmates.
On Wednesday, September 28, Lala Kent shared a throwback photo of the original Pump Rules cast, which included Stassi Schroeder and Kristen Doute. The photo was taken at SUR restaurant and also featured Katie Maloney. Ariana Madix felt that the model should move on from those days. She accused her former friend of “living in the past.”
“I love you ALL but I guess I’m just confused what this post is supposed to be giving on the night of our PREMIERE,” Ariana wrote in the comments. “Are you living in the past or are you ready for the future of the show?”
“I had to,” Lala wrote in the caption of her post.
Ariana was missing from the photo, but so was fellow cast member Brittany Cartwright. She spent some time in the comments section. The Fancy AF Cocktails co-author reacted to a fan who argued that Lala was “showing respect to the OGs that made the show maybe…”
Ariana Madix calls out Lala’s feud with Scheana
Also during the Season 9 premiere, Scheana Shay hashed out her feud with Lala Kent. She also watched carefully as the two got into it at her party. In Lala’s Instagram post, Ariana wondered why Scheana wasn’t included in the photo. She felt that the actress purposely left her out.
“Then where is [Scheana Shay]?” Ariana asked the fan.
Another fan told Ariana not to comment on Lala’s post. “If you don’t have anything nice to say…” they wrote. “I did say something nice,” Ariana responded, meaning the first part of her original comment to Lala, “I love you all.”
Lala has since removed the post from her timeline. However, she featured some of the old cast members via her Instagram Stories. She shared a clip of herself watching former cast member Jax Taylor. The Instagram Story featured her daughter, Ocean Kent Emmett, who watched the old season with her.
