However, when it comes to her role, she is no longer full time.

Lala Kent remains close with James Kennedy

Kent and her co-star, James Kennedy, who is also returning for season 5, hit it off during season 4 and appeared to mess around on occasion.

However, while Kennedy appeared to be quite interested in embarking on a romance with Kent, she didn't seem too keen on the skinny Brit and eventually he moved on with another woman, Raquel Leviss, who will likely be seen during season 5 as well.

Although Kent and Kennedy didn't hit it off romantically, they have remained close since their initial meeting and weeks ago, they attended a joint appearance in Las Vegas. Also in attendance during the pool event was Leviss, who was seen in Sin City with the reality stars.

Lala Kent disappointed Andy Cohen during an appearance on 'Watch What Happens Live'

During Vanderpump Rules season 4, Kent and Kennedy appeared on an episode of Watch What Happens Live and quickly got on the bad side of Andy Cohen with their constant profanities and drunken behavior. WhileKent was eventually asked back to the show, and has since apologized to Cohen numerous times, Kennedy has not been back to the clubhouse and it is unclear if he will ever get his chance at redemption.
