- Vanderpump Rules -The Brief Hollywood History Of Jesse Metfcalfe & Randall Emmett's Friendship
John Tucker must die, but not before spilling all the tea about Vanderpump Rules' Lala Kent and her (former?) fiancé, Randall Emmett. Jesse Metcalfe appears on a new episode of VPR, and I absolutely need to know everything about this unholy friend group. How does Jesse Metcalfe even know Lala? Why is he casually showing up to play poker with Randall?
Unfortunately, Metcalfe and Lala and Randall didn't meet because he was a hot young guy hired to mow the lawn. Though it's unclear exactly how they met, the Desperate Housewives alum has a professional history with Randall. Metcalfe starred in the 2018 sequel Escape Plan 2: Hades, produced by Randall. The two later worked together again in the 2020 Bruce Willis vehicle, Hard Kill, which also starred Lala as Bruce Willis' daughter who gets kidnapped by an international terrorist (yes, really).
Metcalfe and Randall are apparently friends outside of work, too as Randall noted during Metcalfe's recent appearance on the Give Them Lala ... with Randall podcast. "Jesse, I want to tell you something. You're a good friend to me, you're a good friend to us, and I want to thank you, and you're an incredible actor, and we thank you for coming on and being with us," Randall said in his send off.
Now that we know how they're friends, the only question that remains is, do we think Jesse Metcalfe is Team Randall or Team Lala?
