USA TODAY BESTSELLER
The Vanderpump Rules breakout star and provocateur brings her signature sharp wit to the page with this collection of humorous and brutally honest essays exploring her rocky road to fame, sobriety, and beyond.
What does “Give them Lala” mean? It means giving the truest, most honest version of yourself to the world. It means being authentic, bold, adventurous, and having an unapologetic approach to life.
Hollywood is where Lauren Burningham, aspiring actress from Utah, fully embraced her alter-ego Lala Kent, entrepreneur, entertainer, and film and television star. Some say she’s rude; Lala says she claps back. Some say she’s spontaneous; Lala says “eat up the drama.” Some say she’s too bold; Lala knows she’s reality TV gold. Truth is, without giving them Lala, Lauren could never have become the woman she is today.
In her debut collection of essays, Lala shares how you, too, can embrace the best version of yourself and never feel guilty for deserving more. As she leads us on her bumpy journey from suburban boredom to Hollywood glamour, she’ll explain how women can—and should—feel just as free as men when it comes to sex, how sobriety saved her life and relationship, and how we should treasure every day we have with those we love.
APPLE BOOKS REVIEW
Reality TV star Lala Kent has never been one to shy away from drama—which makes this heartfelt (and very juicy) memoir even more enthralling. The book chronicles Lala’s journey from a basketball- and Tupac-loving Mormon kid from Salt Lake City to her glamorous debut on Bravo’s Vanderpump Rules. Throughout, the reality star lays her soul bare without skimping on any behind-the-scenes gossip. We loved hearing her unfiltered takes on everything from encouraging all women to enjoy a “ho phase” to her disastrous first interview with Andy Cohen. The newly sober author’s narration adds an extra level of intimacy to an already-candid memoir. Give Them Lala shows us that being true to yourself, no matter how brash that makes you seem, is the best way to live.
Heartfelt and touching
A side of Lala I didn’t know existed. Very touching and my life story is beyond relatable!!
I got to know her on a whole new level
Love it. I bet a lot of people could relate to her grief and her behavior surrounding it.
