The “Vanderpump Rules” star recently appeared on the “Behind The Velvet Rope” podcast to dish about her new book, motherhood and more.
Earlier this year, Lala released her book, “Give Them Lala,” which dishes on her childhood, rise to fame, the biggest meltdowns on “Vanderpump Rules” and her relationship with now-fiancé Randall Emmet.
The reality TV star welcomed her first child, a daughter, Ocean Kent Emmet in March of this year.
The first-time mom has documented her journey into motherhood extensively on her Instagram.

Lala is no stranger to showing off every aspect of her life, after all she is a cast member of one of the biggest reality TV shows of this generation!
She has shown the world the good, bad, glitzy and drab aspects of her life, so when the topic of sobriety came up, she was an open book.
Podcast host David Yontef asked what Lala thought about the new “forms” of sobriety such as, California Sober, which Demi Lovato claimed to be back in March.
Nearly three years after her near fatal overdose of heroin laced with fentanyl, Demi revealed to “CBS Sunday Morning” that she was “California Sober” which means she drinks and smokes pot, but doesn’t do hard drugs.
“I think the term that I best identify with is ‘California sober. I really don’t feel comfortable explaining the parameters of my recovery to people, because I don’t want anyone to look at my parameters of safety and think that’s what works for them, because it might not,” the singer told CBS.
Lala has been sober since 2018 and feels Demi’s definition of sobriety is inappropriate.
“I don’t like to judge, but I actually think that that’s super offensive,” she said. “There are people out there who work their ass off to never take themselves out of reality and to never place themselves in an altered state.”
As she said she isn’t one to judge, and admitted she never wants to “make or break someones sobriety or decision;” however, she definitely does not agree with Demi’s definition of sobriety.
“So to say that you’re like California sober or this type of sober is extremely offensive,” the reality star said.
Lala added that being California sober is “not a real thing.”
She doubled down saying, “I’ve been in rooms with men and women who have given up everything just to not pick up,” she said. “You’re not sober if you’re drinking or you’re smoking weed, you are not sober.”
‘Sober’ to Lala means not taking yourself out of reality.

Lala began drinking heavily in 2018 after the sudden death of her father.
She went on a four-day bender while vacationing with her fiancé and his two daughters at Disney World.
The “Give Me Lala” author is a firm believer in AA and even sang its praises on the podcast.
