On June 9, Lala Kent declared via Instagram Story, "I wanna mention it all. Ask me anything," and she meant anything. In the hours that followed, the Vanderpump Rules cast member candidly responded to questions on topics ranging from postpartum sex to her tattoos. So when multiple followers took the opportunity to ask about her diet and exercise routine, Lala was happy to share details — and offer up some words of wisdom.
"My diet is non-existent," she responded to one question. "As far as exercise — I play pickleball & plan on getting back to the gym soon." Lala doesn't have to go far to play the sport. Last year, she and Randall Emmett added a gorgeous pickleball court to their backyard.
When another person asked for advice, writing, "How can I start loving my body because it's so far from in shape," Lala responded: "Be easier on yourself. We are trying to come out of [a] worldwide pandemic. Be thankful for what your body has done for you and is capable of, rather than what it looks like."
In a 2018 interview with Cosmopolitan, Lala shared a similar message. "Enjoy your life. If your heart is healthy and your mind is healthy, you’re living the life," she said at the time. "I can’t do the diet restrictions. I think that’s such a terrible thing to do to yourself."
Since welcoming her daughter, Ocean, Lala has opened up about being mindful of the food she is eating. "Yesterday was one of our hardest days," she wrote in an April post. "I was aware certain foods could mess with my [baby's] tummy, but never worried too much. I had vegan food for lunch — beans, cauliflower, etc. I'm sure you're all thinking 'you're an idiot, those foods give grown people gasses!'"
"Ocean screamed, cried and fussed, from morning to night," she continued. "I clued in after my second feed, & switched from the boob to a bottle with saved milk. I sobbed when it was time for bed. Yes I was exhausted, but mostly because when she finally started feeling better around 10 p.m., I felt so terrible that I did that to my sweet girl. Wish us luck today, that I've pumped all the vegan out of these milk jugs."
