AceShowbiz - Reality TV star Lala Kent has celebrated five years of sobriety. The "Vanderpump Rules" star has remembered hitting "rock bottom" and feeling "powerless" before deciding to quit alcohol. "I've been sober for 5 years today. On this day I replay my rock bottom moment. All the details of what happened on this day," she wrote on Instagram alongside a picture of her on a ride with her two-year-old daughter Ocean.
"Waking up, admitting I was powerless, and for the first time in many years seeing the light at the end of the tunnel. I'm so grateful for this day. I will continue to work hard for my sobriety, and take a moment of silence for the alcoholic who still suffers. I see you- I love you. Thank you, God. Happy birthday to me!"
Last year, the 33-year-old beauty admitted she was "terrified" about having sex with a new partner sober.
Lala didn't have to worry about intimate issues when she was engaged to her ex Randall Emmett - the father of her little girl. However, after they split, she went on to strike up a new romance and admitted she was scared to get intimate without having some Dutch courage.
Speaking on the "Intimate Knowledge" podcast, she explained, "I got into a relationship when I was in my alcoholism, and then I got sober with this person, so I was already comfortable. But as far as being out there in the world sexually with nothing to like numb what's happening - not like I wanna be numb - but at least you got some liquid courage."
She added of her subsequent romance, "I was so terrified to have sex sober because I had never done it before." However, the encounter went well and she said of the experience, "[We] were coming back for more, a lot ... Whoever taught him needs some sort of award because it was mind-blowing."
Lala and her former partner Randall were together from 2015 until their split in 2021.
