Vanderpump Rules’S Lala Kent Dishes On How Shep Rose Annoyed Taylor Armstrong At Bravocon, Says Rhoc Star Was Forced To Check Him


During a recent interview on Amazon Live last week, Lala Kent disclosed that Taylor Armstrong, a cast member of The Real Housewives of Orange County, was not pleased with the actions of Southern Charm stars Shep Rose and Austen Kroll at BravoCon.

The Vanderpump Rules star, 33, was asked at the fan event earlier this month if she was irritated by any specific Bravolebrities. Looking back at the Bravo Awards, she revealed that Taylor, 52, had to repeatedly correct Shep, 43, and Austen, 36, for their “obnoxious” actions.

“Taylor Armstrong was behind me and then Shep was behind her with I think Austen. And they were being a little bit rowdy, the Southern Charm boys,” Lala recalled during her November 13 appearance on Amazon Live, via Heavy. “Taylor was not having it.”

“I could hear her behind me putting them in check. Every five minutes. It was a lot,” she continued. “She was like, ‘I have had it, I have had it. If they think — I’m about to pull some Oklahoma on their you-know-what. I could be their mother!’ I was like, ‘Tell them Tay. It’s obnoxious.’”


As Southern Charm fans may have heard, Shep was also accused of being an annoyance to Brynn Whitfield, 36, of The Real Housewives of New York City, whom he had been flirting with before the event.

Last week, during an episode of Andy Cohen Live, the 55-year-old comedian gave his audience an explanation of why he thought Shep and Brynn weren’t a good fit in the end.

“Shep reminds me of a big, inebriated Golden Retriever,” Andy remarked. She was probably thinking, ‘This is not, this is not going to happen,’ because he is a large, rather inebriated Golden Retriever. I believe he began questioning her about whether they ought to become pregnant or procreate while traveling to the Bravo Awards. Thus, that did not occur.

Prior to the event, Brynn appeared on Watch What Happens Live, where she admitted to having a romantic interest in Shep.

“I like Southern Charm. I’m from Indiana. Midwest and the down south, we play it dirty,” she shared.

And after seeing the clip on Instagram, Shep said, “That’s certainly nice to hear. Thanks for thinking of me Brynn.”
