Lala Kent is done taking chances with her love life.
While speaking to Amazon Live on Feb. 8, the "Vanderpump Rules" star said she's hired a private investigator to run background checks on potential dates — this after her former fiancé, Randall Emmett, allegedly cheated on her.
"I will never welcome someone into my life again without a full background check, and I mean in-depth," she said. "I got to see what your credit is. I need to know your family history. I need to know everything you've been involved with. I'm going deep."
Lala, 31, added, "I now have, like, this PI guy who I just randomly send people to. I'm like, 'Hey, before I go anywhere with this person, I'm going to need to know his story.' Damaged, I guess."
Since splitting with Randall, a movie producer, last fall, Lala hasn't had much good to say about the father of her 10-month-old daughter, Ocean. That didn't change during the new interview.
"And this could be the trauma — I don't remember anything about my relationship. I don't remember any good moments," she said. "I can only remember the demise of it, so maybe that's my mind trying to protect me. Back to the lighter part of it: He made it easy, trust me. Wasn't much to miss."
Lala's contention toward her ex came just a day after revealing she's essentially paid to create drama on "Vanderpump Rules."
"My show rewards me for confrontation and speaking up. I don't want to say that I like confrontation, but I will say that I'm great at it," she said on the Feb. 7 edition of Dear Media's "Trading Secrets." "It's not something where I leave feeling amazing after it happens, but I know what I signed up for and I'm being paid for my thoughts. When cameras aren't on, I tend to pick my battles a little bit better. But when cameras are on, it's, like, 'Well, I have a thought and I'm going to say it.'"
Later in the interview, she noted that keeping brand "relevant" outside of TV helps her team better negotiate her salary on "Vanderpump Rules."
