A brand new perspective. Following her break up from Randall Emmett, Lala Kent revealed that she has been taking a look at her previous relationship together with his ex-wife, Ambyr Childers, in a brand new mild.
“I feel like our road was very bumpy, as you know, and I can understand why. I have a lot of compassion for her,” Kent, 31, defined throughout an look on Watch What Happens Live With Andy Cohen on Tuesday, January 11. “I think she is a great woman and a great mom. I will be honest — I think she is the best thing that ever happened to that guy.”
While reflecting on her historical past with Childers, 33, the Vanderpump Rules star admitted that her breakup compelled her to reevaluate, including, “I just think the way that he and I came to be, looking back on it, was so gross and messy and just something that was built on nothing but lies. Knowing what I know about her, I think she was a good one and he messed up.”
Emmett, 50, and Childers had been beforehand married from 2009 to 2017. A year after their divorce was finalized, the movie producer proposed to the Give Them Lala writer in September 2018. The You star, who shares daughters London, 11, and Rylee, 8, with Emmett, beforehand made headlines when she requested Kent to cease sharing images of her youngsters.
“Since you don’t want to answer my text messages, I’ll try here,” Childers wrote through Instagram in August 2019. “Lala, I appreciate your love towards my children, but until you’re officially their stepmother please refrain from posting my children on social media! I hope [you] understand where I’m coming from. Many thanks.”
Kent, who welcomed 9-month-old daughter Ocean with Emmett in March 2021, shaped a detailed bond along with her now ex-fiancé’s youngsters from his earlier marriage. Since their break up, the Utah native revealed that she wasn’t certain how the little ones had been doing.
“From what I have heard it has been hard for them,” Kent famous on WWHL. “I don’t have any communication with them at this point in time — which is very heartbreaking.”
The Bravo character sparked breakup hypothesis when she eliminated all traces of Emmett from her social media in October 2021. One month later, Us Weekly confirmed that that they had ended their engagement.
Following the information of their break up, Kent has opened up about how discovering images of Emmett spending time with girls in Nashville pushed her to make a change.
“I think that’s what is so hard to stomach for me is that even when we weren’t connecting, I was so loyal and faithful. I was not sending inappropriate text messages. I was like in it. I went straight to him. If I was ever feeling unhappy, I was willing to do couple’s therapy. I started going to therapy on my own,” the singer stated throughout an look on the “Not Skinny But Not Fat” podcast in December 2021. “Like I was doing anything I possibly could to make sure that he and I would stand the test of time. To feel like I was doing all of that really for nothing. I mean, I look back on these years with him and I can’t remember any of it.”
Looking again on their relationship now, Kent claimed that the alleged infidelity has been occurring for “quite some time.”
“It has been kind of repeated behavior that I have found out about, and it is not just one person. It is many,” the Row actress advised Andy Cohen on Tuesday. “I believe that it started after I got sober. I don’t know how I didn’t see it.”
For Kent, the main purple flag with Emmett was the “constant phone use” that she didn’t concentrate on till later.
“It was glued to him. He couldn’t even go into a massage without his phone on him and he would get very funny if I would get near the phone,” she added. “That should have been a huge red flag to me. And the constant being gone, he was just never around. But I thought, ‘Who would creep around with him?’ I really thought that.”
Emmett, for his half, has not commented on the breakup after selecting to take a break from their joint podcast.
“I think for now, for me, I’m going to take a step back from being in front of the camera, even though it’s a podcast and you can’t be in front of the camera, you can be in front of the microphone. [I’m going] to focus right now on family and my children — Ocean, London, Rylee — and also my film business,” he defined in a November 2021 episode of the “Give Them Lala” podcast. “I made that decision and I hope that my 15 followers stay loyal to the podcast, while you don’t hear my voice. But I think that’s — for me right now — the right thing to do for myself and I just want to be super focused right now.”
