Lala Kent is not pumping the breaks over the intensity of the Vanderpump Rules season 10 reunion.
Just weeks after news surfaced that Vanderpump Rules star Tom Sandoval had an affair with Raquel Leviss, which led to his split from Ariana Madix, the entire cast sat down for their highly anticipated season 10 reunion. And as Lala exclusively shared during the March 30 episode of E! News, the cast did not hold back.
"It was explosive," Lala told E! News' Adrienne Bailon-Houghton and Courtney Lopez. "I definitely ate, I blacked out a little bit. I went off, James [Kennedy] went off. We dragged them pretty hard."
As for her expectations for the reunion? Though Lala had an idea going in, she wasn't prepared for the aftermath of their sit-down.
"I didn't expect to leave feeling so gross," the Bravo star said. "I just felt dirty that I was associated with two people that were capable of something like this."

And as for "tensions being so high," as a source previously told E! News, that host Andy Cohen had to separate two cast members—Lala confirms that is indeed what happened.
"I assumed that it would be hard for us to stay in our seats," she continued. "I won't say who almost got into it, but I mean, security had to get involved."

As for Tom and Raquel's future, Lala simply doesn't think they'll be together forever.
"I definitely don't think they'll go the distance," she said. "I think Raquel will be the next Ariana and then Sandoval will move on to someone else. It'll just be a pattern, this is who he is."
And if you're wondering about how Tom and Raquel handled the tough confrontation at the reunion, Lala explained she was surprised by their responses to the entire situation—and promised viewers will be too.


"You guys will be shocked when you watch it," Lala revealed. "My jaw was on the floor. I could not believe that two people could come with that material, adding, "they're both insane."
As for how Ariana is doing now? As Lala explained, even during the reunion, she realized Ariana would be more than okay moving forward.
"She is thriving," Lala noted. "I just knew once she cut the dead weight that she would be a revived person."
