The reality star also reveals why she thinks Scheana Shay may be in need of an "intervention."
Lala Kent was as candid as ever when she stopped by Jenny McCarthy's SiriusXM radio show Wednesday afternoon, explaining the real meaning behind the PastaGate battle on "Vanderpump Rules" and her belief that Tupac Shakur's spirit lives inside her body. Yes, you read that correctly.
The reality star recently got into a heated argument with co-star James Kennedy on the show after he took a funny story she shared about eating his girlfriend's pasta way out of proportion. James repeatedly yelled "It's not about the pasta!" so many times that fans were left wondering if "pasta" was actually a code word for drugs.
According to Lala, though, it's not.
"It was legitimately pasta," the Utah native informed Jenny, who asked if "pasta" could mean Adderall or cocaine. "That day of filming -- the conversation was getting very, very heavy between James and Logan about them being quote-unquote 'gay,' and I didn't like it, so I tried to make the conversation more lighthearted by saying, 'The problem is is that we ate Raquel's pasta.' And he went insane."
"I never thought it would go that far. I literally was shocked," she explained. "And then people started saying that pasta was a code word for a drug that I've never touched in my entire life. Keep in mind, y'all, I did mushrooms one time, had a hell of a time, never did it again, and then weed, which I've recently given up, so I'm not a drug person. I was actually very offended when it came out that that was a code word for a substance that I don't mess with."
Jenny then switched gears.
"How did this sweet, beautiful Utah girl turn into this cool, hood chick?" she asked. "Like, on Instagram and Snapchat and stuff, you're like, so sexy, funny, but they're hood?"
"I am a firm believer that when Tupac died, he took over my body," Lala replied. "I'm sure he's not thrilled with his new encasing, but I'm not thrilled about the temper."
Lala also revealed she recently got a 'thug life' tattoo on the inside of her left ankle.
"It's in my handwriting," she said. "It looks like a prison stamp. But the thing is, I've never even been in a fight before. I'm as bugie and white as they come, but I gets to clappin' sometimes. Pretend, ya know?"
When asked who on the show "needs an intervention," she said Scheana Shay.
"I would really like to see Scheana have someone get into that mind and work through some stuff. I love her a lot, but I feel like her head is kind of in the clouds a bit," said Lala.
"I've come to find she expects people to act a certain way, like she expects people to act the way she would act, and I've been there," she added. "You're always gonna be let down if that's the way you think. I think she just needs an outsider to bring her back down to Earth. I feel like she brings a lot of 'yes' men around, and there's always a new person."
"I've seen who is happy for me and who is not," she said. "The first person that texted me when I booked the role and when I launched Give Them Lala beauty was Kristen and Katie, being super kind and saying how proud they are of me. Scheana, when I told her I booked it, she goes, 'Oh, is your man producing it?' Why the f-ck does that matter?"
"Vanderpump Rules" airs Mondays at 9 p.m. on Bravo.
