COMES CLEAN: ‘I’m an alcoholic!’
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
