Lisa Vanderpump spoke out about the heated verbal fight Lala Kent had with Raquel Leviss during a recent episode of Vanderpump Rules while appearing on Andy Cohen‘s late-night talk show earlier this week.
According to an April 8 report from Bravo’s The Daily Dish, Vanderpump was asked about one particularly cringeworthy moment of the women’s feud, during which Kent, who was berating Leviss in front of their many co-stars, compared herself to a “Michael Vick fighting dog” as she went after the longtime girlfriend of the newly sober James Kennedy.
During Tuesday’s episode of Watch What Happens Live, Vanderpump, who was appearing alongside fellow guests Kent, Randall Emmett, and Lance Bass, said that while Kent’s comment was definitely “stupid,” she know that Kent is quite committed to helping animals and didn’t intend to make a cruel joke about Vick’s heavily abused animals.
“She said it, but, once again, I will say about Lala, she is one of the most committed of everybody to the dog rescue,” Vanderpump said. “So, yes, it was a careless comment.”
“I hate that guy,” Vanderpump said of Vick. “That guy absolutely epitomizes everything we stand against. But Lala and her mother are really, really dog lovers.”
As many know, Vick faced legal drama years ago after it was discovered that he was running a dog fighting ring with pit bulls and had known about a number of animals who were forced to fight until their tragic deaths.
It was truly a devastating ordeal and one that forever tainted Vick’s career in the NFL.
Also during Tuesday’s Watch What Happens Live, Kent apologized for seemingly using the dire situation to further intensify her encounter with Leviss on Vanderpump Rules.
“Let me be very clear, I own two pitbulls. My mother works for the Humane Society of Utah. I feel that actions speak louder than words. I did not mean anything. I’m a pitbull advocate. I love and adore those animals. So it wasn’t about that,” she said. “They’re just words. Let’s think about my actions.”
Amid their on-screen drama, Kent took to her Instagram page last week to share a photo of herself and Leviss and in the caption of the image, she issued an apology to her co-star.
“Raquel, I’m sorry I’ve been an ahole. ‘If we can’t all agree Lala’s a bully, we can all agree she’s a b*h.’ This had me rolling. Nice work on that bite. It’s onward and upward from here, I promise,” she wrote.
“Onward and upward from here,” Leviss agreed.
