‘Vanderpump Rules’ Cast’s Dating History

When viewers were introduced to staff at Lisa Vanderpump‘s restaurant during Vanderpump Rules‘ 2013 premiere, it was clear everyone was intertwined in one another’s love lives.

From Stassi Schroeder‘s rocky relationship with Jax Taylor, which took a turn when he hooked up with her best friend Kristen Doute, to Peter Madrigal’s casual connections to several of the waitresses, including Katie Maloney, nothing was off-limits on screen.

Fans were in for a surprise when Lala Kent, who joined the Bravo series in 2014, chose not to share as many details about her love life with the camera. Ahead of filming season 5, the Give Them Lala author started seeing Randall Emmett, but they kept their relationship quiet for two years before going public in 2017.

Since going public with their relationship on Vanderpump Rules, the duo made headlines in October 2021 when the reality star erased all traces of her fiancé on social media. As rumors swirled about Emmett possibly cheated on the performer, Kent was spotted multiple times without her engagement ring. Us Weekly later confirmed their split.
