Lala told Behind The Velvet Rope with David Yontef of Demi Lovato’s California Sober stance: “You know, I don’t like to judge, but I actually think that that’s super offensive. You know, there are people out there who work their, their, ass off to never take themselves out of an alter, you know, never take themselves out of reality and to never placed themselves in an altered state.
“You know, they don’t even when they have a cold, don’t even take DayQuil or NyQuil. So to say that you’re like California Sober or this type of sober is extremely offensive. No. And I, and I don’t, and I’m not looking at you like, you’re the one.
“To me, I, I’ve been in rooms with, with men and women who, who have done, who have given up everything just to not pick up. So sober to me means that you are not taking yourself out of reality. Yeah. Not, this is not a real thing. You’re not sober. If you are drinking or you’re smoking weed, you are not sober.”
She shared: “I’ve learned that it doesn’t work for me to say that I’m never going to do this again. I know I’m done with the stuff that’s going to kill me, right?”
“Telling myself that I can never have a drink or smoke marijuana, I feel like that’s setting myself up for failure because I am such a black-and-white thinker. I had it drilled into my head for so many years that one drink was equivalent to a crack pipe.”
Further explaining her California sober lifestyle on her docuseries and in a CBS Sunday Morning interview, she discouraged others from following her path to sobriety.
She said in her docuseries: “I also don’t want people to hear that and think that they can go out and try having a drink or smoking a joint, you know?”
“Because it isn’t for everybody. Recovery isn’t a one-size-fits-all solution. You shouldn’t be forced to get sober if you’re not ready. You shouldn’t get sober for other people. You have to do it for yourself.”
Demi went on on CBS Sunday Morning: “I really don’t feel comfortable explaining the parameters of my recovery to people, because I don’t want anyone to look at my parameters of safety and think that’s what works for them because it might not.
“I am cautious to say that, just like I feel the complete abstinent method isn’t a one-size-fits-all solution for everybody, I don’t think that this journey of moderation is a one-size-fits-all solution for everybody, too.”
In May, Lala revealed she once put her fiance Randall Emmett’s toothbrush in her butt during a drunken fight.
The Vanderpump Rules star, who has been sober for two years, pulled off the X-rated prank after a boozy night of arguing in Miami.
Lala, 30, said she was in an “alcoholic fog” when she threw Randall’s belongings over their hotel balcony, she wrote in her book Give Them Lala.
The reality star recalled “taking his toothbrush and putting it in my a**hole for a minute,” according to an excerpt obtained by TooFab.
When the film producer asked why she was laughing, she said: “That toothbrush was just in my a**hole.”
“I’m sad to say that was not my lowest point,” Lala said of the incident.
Lala welcomed her first child, Ocean Kent Emmett, with her fiance, Randall Emmett, at the end of March.
This is Lala’s first child, though Randall already shares two children, London 11, and Rylee, seven, from his previous marriage to actress Ambyr Childers.
The TV star announced her pregnancy last September, after postponing her wedding due to Covid.
