"Vanderpump Rules" star Lala Kent is leaving the Bravo show mid-season because, she says, among other things, her co-stars "don't deserve to be in my world."
There are also claims that her current relationship has to do with her departure, and there are even other claims that she's dating a well-known married man in Hollywood.
Sounds like the drama doesn't stop even when the cameras point the other direction!
In an interview with TooFab.com, the controversial beauty said, "I'm excited for people to watch me exit, because it's just going to show a new side of my life and I think it will get to show people who I really am."
The reality show, in it's fifth season, doesn't show the real Lala, she claims.
"I watch the show sometimes and I'm like, 'That's not me.' I want people to see who I actually hang out with, my day-to-day life," she said. "And I never got to show that. I'm excited for people to watch me leave 'Vanderpump Rules,' to be quite honest."
She continued, "I made it halfway through the season and just decided that I want no part of the people anymore. I feel like they don't deserve to be in my world in any shape or form. So I dismissed myself."
For much of the season, Lala's personal life has been a huge topic of discussion, with many alleging that she's dating a married man. On the Monday, Dec. 12 episode (which was filmed over the summer) she said she was "dumped" by her man. She said she's back with him, but gave no indication as to who he actually is, which was another sticking point with the cast.
Her co-stars always wondered why the men she dates were never really featured or conveniently didn't show up when she said they would.
Of her castmates continued speculation into her love life, she said, "In their attempt to ruin my relationship, they've actually given me a large platform and I am just so thankful for them. Like who cares what any of us are doing, worry about yourself."
In her chat with TooFab.com, she maintains she's never dated a married man, but said the drama of the show strained her relationship with her beau -- whoever that is.
"I can say it's been a strain on me and my real-life boyfriend, because I had to deal with it throughout the season and going to him and complaining about it ... was absolutely horrible," she revealed. "But now we're having to relive it again."
Her mystery man has apparently told her that he will step up and unmask himself if it helps end the rumors.
"But my goal is to protect his child and the mother of his child, who is a close friend of mine," she said. "I'm not breaking for anybody. I'm not dating a married man, I do have a boyfriend and no one will ever know who he is until I feel like we're in that place ... because he's a well-known individual. So I'm not putting him on blast like that."
