Lala Kent’s sobriety pact with her fiance is more than a health cleanse.
The “Vanderpump Rules” star recently told her Instagram followers she is an alcoholic. “Five months ago, I came to the realization that I am an alcoholic, and I am now a friend of Bill W., which you will never know how much this program means to me [and] has given me new life,” Kent said on her Instagram Story.
Bill Wilson’s Alcoholics Anonymous is a 12-step program for those struggling with their drinking addiction.
“I always say if you don’t have to be sober, I wouldn’t recommend it, but me — as someone who does need to be sober — being in my right frame of mind every single day is truly incredible,” she continued. “When I’m having the roughest day that I could possibly have, I — for once in a very, very long time — see the light at the end of the tunnel. I know that tomorrow I’m gonna be okay.”
“I’m thinking a lot about my dad today — not different from any other day — and I just feel very, very blessed that I think back on my time that I had with him and there are no regrets,” she said of her father, Kent Burningham, who passed away in April.
Several months ago, Kent told People she was 50 days sober as part of a pact with her fiance.
