  • Lala Kent said she wanted to make sure Katie Maloney feels "protected and heard"
  • The "Vanderpump Rules" star said she wished she could "baby" all of her friends
  • Kent has patched things up with Maloney but predicted that something else will "unpatch everything"

Lala Kent and Katie Maloney have mended fences.

The Give Them Lala Beauty founder, 32, recently opened up about where she stands with her "Vanderpump Rules" co-star, revealing that they have mended their rift.

"I think [Katie] has her feelings, and I always want to make sure she feels protected and heard. And I feel like we're back in a very good place," Kent told Us Weekly Tuesday at the "Vanderpump Rules" Season 10 premiere at SUR in West Hollywood when asked whether Scheana Shay played a part in her drama with Maloney. "But this is what happens when you get a group like this together.".

"We're very passionate, you know?" she continued. "We definitely feel the feels, but I just hope that I can baby all of my friendships — even if they have to be separate. I just want everyone to know that I love you, I care about you, and how can I baby you in moments where you're not feeling safe?"

Kent added that in the upcoming season of the Bravo series, she's in full mom mode while trying to comfort everyone. However, she also admitted that isn't always the case.

"I'm trying to baby everyone. I'm going through the motions. Like, one day I wanna rip everyone's head off [and] the next day I'm like, 'Let me baby you.' I don't know what's going on," she said.

The drama between the pair started in January when Maloney said in an episode of her "You're Gonna Love Me" podcast that their friendship was struggling and that the "vibes are definitely off."

Kent reacted to her co-star's comments in an episode of her own "Give Them Lala" podcast after "so many people" asked her about Maloney.

"Well, now I know that someone asked Katie this on her podcast, and she said, 'The vibes are definitely off.' So I guess the vibes are definitely off," Kent said.

Kent claimed that they had a heated exchange over their DMs after she forgot to wish her friend a happy birthday on Jan. 16. The author explained that it was an honest mistake as she had "a lot" going on at the time.

She said it slipped her mind that it was Maloney's birthday as her 1-year-old daughter Ocean was sick, and it was Martin Luther King Jr. Day.

For her part, Maloney told Us Weekly Tuesday that she "really love[s] Lala" and "hopes" they will stay close.

Although they have already patched things up, Kent predicted that there could be more drama in the future.

"I'm sure something else will happen to unpatch everything," she teased.

"Vanderpump Rules" Season 10 premieres on Bravo Wednesday at 9 p.m. EST.
