COMES CLEAN: ‘I’m an al­co­holic!’

NW - - Reality Weekly -

She might serve cock­tails cock­tails, but Van­der­pump Rules star Lala Kent’s steer­ing clear of them her­self, shock­ing fans last week by re­veal­ing she’s been bat­tling with the booze!

“Five months ago, I came to the re­al­i­sa­tion that I am an al­co­holic,” she con­fessed on Instagram on March 17. “I al­ways say if you don’t have to be sober, I wouldn’t rec­om­mend it, but me – as some­one who does need to be sober – be­ing in my right frame of mind ev­ery sin­gle day is truly in­cred­i­ble.”

The 29-year-old re­al­ity star and beauty boss says that she’s been re­ly­ing on an Al­co­holics Anony­mous 12-step pro­gramme to stay sober.

“I’m so grateful that I have this pro­gramme,” ad­mits Lala, who’s opened up in the past about self-med­i­cat­ing with al­co­hol and drugs fol­low­ing the death of her fa­ther in April last year.

“I felt like I was fall­ing into a pat­tern,” she said. “I know it’s some­thing I’ll have to deal with on a day-to-day ba­sis.” Stay strong, girl!

‘I’ve never been hap­pier... it’s the right de­ci­sion for me,’ says the star of her new sober life

‘Drink­ing for me was med­i­ca­tion in­stead of cel­e­bra­tion,’ ad­mits Lala
