Lala Kent is one of the blunter TV personalities on the Bravo network. She says whatever she’s thinking or feeling in the moment on Vanderpump Rules, even if it doesn’t appear that it’ll age too well. And it seems that remains even when the cameras aren’t rolling. Whether she’s shading her ex with vibrator ads on Insta or dismissing her co-stars’ poor ideas of friendship in the press, Kent continues to shock spectators with her frankness. Lately, the reality star has gotten very real about salary negotiations and how the show in fact “rewards” her.

A few months ago – following cheating allegations that led her to breakup with Hollywood producer/fiancé Randall Emmett – Lala Kent was candid that she was able to leave her ex easily because her mom taught her financial independence from a young age. But the 31-year-old discussed her finances further on the Trading Secrets podcast, specifically about how it works on Vanderpump Rules with the salary hierarchy. She said:

When you’re brand new, you definitely need that hostess job. I still was having to fit model. I still was having to be a hostess. Like, what I was making on the show was not covering much. You earn your place, and then obviously, your pay goes up.
