Lala Kent Tells Mom-Shaming Trolls to ‘Go F–k Yourself’: Lala Kent has had enough of asking for permission. The reality star had a pointed message for mom-shamers after posting a racy swimsuit photo.
“I’m so over the mom shaming from some of you women,” she wrote on her Instagram Story on Thursday, July 13. “I’m a parent, work full time, rarely have one moment for just me, and for just a second on the 4th of July I felt hot and wanted a picture. Anything but praise is unwelcome.”

The 32-year-old Vanderpump Rules star continued: “If you have anything negative to say, go f*ck yourself. Leave me alone.”
Kent had previously posted Instagram photos from an Independence Day party. The first picture showed her 2-year-old daughter, Ocean, playing with castmate Scheana Shay’s 2-year-old daughter, Summer.
“Mom’s turn,” Kent captioned the slideshow. In the second snap, she posed with her back to the camera in a slimming black thong swimsuit and black heeled boots, placing her hands on her rear to emphasize her curves.
While defending the photo in her Story, Kent asserted that “the kids weren’t watching” when she took the sexy pic. “And even if they were, we all have butts,” she added. “Take time to love on yours.”
In the post’s comments, many fans quickly showed support amid the backlash. “I appreciate a Mom who still can [be a] Mom and own her sexuality,” one user wrote, while another told critics to “quit clutching your pearls.”
Former castmate Stassi Schroeder found humor in the contrast between the two pics, commenting: “Omg HAHAHAHAHAHAH. Also, you look amazing.”
Another follower pointed out, “Men never have to put up with this kind of verbal lashing,” as Kent was criticized for the “weird” post.
Kent shares her daughter with ex-fiancé Randall Emmett. Us Weekly confirmed in November 2021 that the two had split amid cheating rumors.
“Randall did not want to split but it was Lala’s decision,” a source told Us. “The trust is gone.”
Since joining Pump Rules in season 4, Kent has been unapologetic about her evolution, no matter the criticism. In March 2019, she publicly called out body-shaming trolls, asking what possesses people to think their opinions matter.
“What makes you feel like your opinion about somebody is worth anything? That’s what social media has done to our world: making everyone feel like their opinion matters. Hello! It doesn’t.” she wrote at the time.
