“Vanderpump Rules” star Lala Kent continued to rip co-stars Raquel Leviss and Tom Sandoval over their months-long affair during an Amazon Live on Tuesday.
Careful to avoid getting in trouble with Bravo for “spilling too much tea”, an admittedly “exhausted” and “brain-fried” Kent described the secret lovers as “two people who couldn’t be further from who they pretended to be to be.” noted that she “never liked any of them.”
She added that it “feels good to have everyone else feel the same way” she does after Sandoval’s “mask came off.”
As for how his recent ex, Ariana Madix, is holding up, the Give Them Lala Beauty founder explained, “Ariana moves with the motion of the ocean, you know? She’s doing as well as you can expect.”
“She has a really good support team behind her,” she continued, admitting that the two “haven’t been super close for a while.”
“I think I’m a little abrupt for her right now. I’m very intense and I don’t know if that’s the head space she’s in yet,” Kent said. “I think I can be more beneficial when more time has passed.”
She added that those on “Vanderpump Rules” who “had differences” — like Katie Maloney and Scheana Shay — have put everything aside to “rally around (their) friend.”
As for how Shay — who was closest to Leviss — is dealing with the fallout, Kent shared, “She’s going through it. It’s very hard when you trust people like that and you start thinking differently about people.”
However, she remained mum on rumors that the former friends’ “heated confrontation” turned physical, saying she “spoke to Scheana and it never came up.”
Asked how she felt about Sandoval’s statement on the matter, which included an apology to his business partners and employees but not to Madix, the mother of one said: “My thoughts are: Tell us you’re a narcissist without telling us that you” are a narcissist. It’s just a textbook for me!”
Kent also said that none of her co-stars are really “Team Sandoval” right now, except for his friend and business partner Tom Schwartz.
“I was trying to tell you he’s weak. I said it first. Didn’t I?”
She added that she doesn’t think anything will come of this for either Sandoval or Leviss, as she believes they both have flawed characters.
Additionally, Kent said that “VPR” matriarch Lisa Vanderpump “is very upset about all of this.”
Earlier in the day, Kent blasted Leviss for sending her a legal letter requesting that the cast delete a sexually explicit video of the former beauty pageant queen that they may have obtained.
The video in question — which Sandoval is believed to have recorded during a cheeky FaceTime call with Leviss — is how his girlfriend of nearly 10 years discovered he was cheating on her on Wednesday.
“Raquel, tell your little Mickey Mouse lawyer that if he has stuff to send over, he can send stuff to my lawyer. Same with the rest of my friends and cast, okay?” Kent lashed out in a since-deleted Instagram Story video, claiming Leviss’ lawyer contacted her via her “personal email.”
Acknowledging that Leviss, 28, is “pretty much brand new to the game,” Kent added: “Look what you did to your f-king 15 minutes.”
After news of Sandoval and Leviss’ dalliance broke on Friday, the “Give Them Lala” podcast host told Sandoval, 39, to “shut up” and immediately put her Leviss-inspired eyeshadow palette up for sale.
Kent has been just one of Vanderpump’s many employees to dump the duo over their affair, which we’re told “began last summer.”
After seeing the aforementioned video of Leviss appear on Sandoval’s phone, Madix learned that the two had allegedly been “communicating inappropriately for months” and quickly dumped the Schwartz & Sandy co-owner.
A source claimed to Page Six that Sandoval and Leviss’ affair included sleepovers at his and Madix’s shared Los Angeles home “when Ariana has been out of town.”

Their co-star James Kennedy, who was previously engaged to Leviss, claimed the two would even stay together when Madix, 37, was at home “sleeping”.
We’re told the pair – who have been wearing matching necklaces since last year – now “want to be together” and had apparently been planning to tell Madix about their romance “for weeks”.
“Ariana was blindsided by the cheating,” a source told us, adding that she had “no idea there were any problems” in her relationship and feels both “heartbroken” and “betrayed.”
Leviss has not yet commented publicly on the situation.
Side Six can confirm that Bravo is filming the latest drama to be included in Season 10, which is currently airing.
Insiders close to the production told us that Sandoval and Madix have discussed his affair on camera and that she felt “gassed” by the conversation.
Meanwhile, we’re told Sandoval and Leviss “kissed on camera” in their first post-“Scandoval” scene, shot at the latter’s apartment.
