Katie Maloney defended her friendship with Ariana Madix after their Vanderpump Rules co-star, Lala Kent, exposed a private conversation during the first part of the season 11 reunion. The highly anticipated Something About Her sandwich shop co-owner took to her Instagram story to share her perspective regarding Lala’s exposé.

“I am someone who has suffered from imposter syndrome for as long as I have known myself, hence why I was apprehensive about opening the sandwich shop on my own. So, when Ariana was going through not only a world of hurt, but also getting some amazing opportunities, that changed a lot of things during a pivotal time.”

“I was extremely sensitive to what she was going through, but also very supportive.” Also, “I was also dealing with immense insecurity about what I could take on and simply didn’t want to put that on [Ariana]. I had an emotional response that didn’t feel appropriate bringing to her front door, so I went where I felt safe … or where I thought I was safe until I could find the appropriate conversation with Ariana. Which of course I did. And we have had plenty of since. To me is to know, value, trust, loyalty, and integrity.”

Bravo TV fans react to then reunion drama between Lala and Katie:

  • Lala used Katie, to create a problem with Arianna. Katie will never trust Lala again
  • This is why I love Katie. Unlike Lala who took a vulnerable conversation off camera to make Katie look bad. 🤢
  • katie is so bitter all the time. glad she was called out
  • Lala and Scheana clearly doesn’t understand having an objective opinion and still supporting a friend.
  • So tried of lala policing peoples emotions and feelings.
  • Lala tried & failed. Again.

In case you missed it:

Lala was the only Pump Rules personality to attend Scheana Shay‘s drag brunch birthday party on May 4th at Queen LV. Noticeably absent were Scheana’s fellow/former (?!?!) ‘Spice Girls,’ Ariana Madix and Katie Maloney.

What’s your opinion of the latest in the Lala and Katie saga?
