Lala Kent gave fans a quick preview of the upcoming Season 11 of Vanderpump Rules.
The reality star, 32, discussed the new season – which began filming on the heels of Tom Sandoval and Raquel Leviss’ cheating scandal in Season 10 – in a recent episode of her podcast Give them Lala.
Lala – who was seen distraught as she wiped her eyes during filming on Tuesday – said it was the “weirdest” film and teased a “twist”.
“You’ll see a bit of a turning point where there are things that maybe I needed in the past that I didn’t get because people were like, ‘Oh, she’s got her own back. There’s a little twist that I was very, very grateful for. It’s just a very interesting environment to be a part of,” she said.
‘There will be a day when the dust will settle. People are moving forward. It’s the weirdest season we’ve ever filmed.

Lala continued, “Usually when we’re filming, I’m like, ‘I can’t wait for this to air. “This round, I’m more, ‘I’m going to go do and be and then I’ll step back because I’m really in a healing process right now.’
“It’s the first time I let my guard down and I immediately regretted it. I didn’t like it and felt extremely exposed,’ she shared.
Madix was recently revealed to be refusing to film scenes with ex Sandoval, following their dramatic split earlier this year.
Tom was seen filming scenes with a number of other cast members, including Scheana Shay and Tom Schwartz.
Some of the cast members traveled to Lake Tahoe to film the 11th season of the hit Bravo series and lend their support to Lisa Vanderpump who opened a new restaurant called Wolf.
Filming began shortly after Season 10’s explosive reunion that was in response to Tom and Raquel’s affair – which has been dubbed Scandoval.
The businessman notably cheated on his girlfriend of nine years, Ariana, and upon discovering intimate FaceTime videos on his phone in early March, she quickly ended their relationship.
Lala isn’t the only one who struggled to film after Scandoval.
On Monday, Scheana revealed she was paired with Sandoval, 40, for a meditation exercise, calling it “emotionally draining” and “uncomfortable”.
The drill took place on the trip to Lake Tahoe with several other cast members.
“I’m paired up with Sandoval to do this spiritual meditation healing kind of thing,” she shared during an Amazon Live. “It was very uncomfortable.”

Group photo: Earlier last Wednesday, Scheana was joined by Lala as the couple cheered on the ‘dumb’ haters as they defended taking a photo with Sandoval while in Lake Tahoe
Applauding back: “We are in a group. We are all here. We jumped on a photo, you know what? I happened to be standing where I stand,” she explained
Scheana said she thought the meditation would “make some good TV” since they “didn’t expect to be paired up”.
“Wednesday’s shoot was beyond the most emotionally draining day I’ve ever had in 11 seasons of Vanderpump Rules,” she said.
“My eyelashes hurt from crying that day, my contacts were dry, I was flushed, I felt weak in every way possible.”
Scheana and Sandoval’s friendship was severed following her affair with Leviss as she is close friends with Ariana, 38.
Scheana recently faced backlash from fans, after she Lala and other cast members were pictured in a group photo with her arm around Sandoval as they posed with fans on the trip to Tahoe.
She seemed to address this during the Amazon Live.
“I don’t like what he did to Ariana obviously. He and I had a really long friendship, so everyone (always says) “Oh Scheana the rocker, Scheana needs loyalty”, and losing such a long friendship has obviously been a struggle.
‘But the Ariana team. She is my girlfriend.
Earlier last Wednesday, Scheana was joined by Lala as the couple cheered on the ‘dumb’ haters as they defended taking a photo with Sandoval in a shared clip on Shay’s Stories.
In the image taken with a fan during the trip, Scheana – who said she hasn’t “forgiven” Tom – could be seen smiling as she stood next to him for the snap.
After receiving backlash, Scheana hopped on her Instagram Stories to share a ‘rant’ while Lala was next to her as they laze on a bed.
“To Instagram rant or not,” Shay mused as she aimed the phone camera over the two. Lala added, “Don’t ask me. You know I love a good rant on Instagram.
Scheana continued, “I don’t know why I feel the need to defend taking a picture with my hand like this (a fist) behind someone’s back,” referring to the way she stood at side of Sandoval.

Kent, who was looking at his own phone, then added: “People are so stupid. It still amazes me that people don’t realize we’re doing a show. And it was this girl’s birthday.
‘Like, how are we gonna be, “Hey, no! Absolutely not!” ‘Like no, happy birthday, let’s take a fucking picture. This is called the adult,” added Lala.
As Shay addressed her fans, Lala added, “It’s called Vanderpump Rules.” Have you already watched it? It’s a TV show.
