The tangled web of Vanderpump Rules continues to unspool: According to Radar Online, star Laura-Leigh tried her hand at stripping last fall, going by the stage name Lola.
“I met Laura-Leigh last September or October when she was applying for a job to dance at [Hollywood bikini lounge and gentlemen’s club] Cheetahs,” a source tells the site.
“She told me she was no longer working at SUR Lounge and really needed the money. She was nervous because she said she’d never danced before. [..]. She even asked me to help her get a foot in the door at some of the more upscale dance bars so that she could make more money.”
Now, out of respect, let’s just note that we report on this without judgment! Everyone’s gotta make a living, and despite the obvious objectification that runs rampant in strip clubs, there are plenty of self-empowered strippers.
Laura-Leigh did land a role in the Jennifer Aniston film We're the Millers, but Radar reports that she filmed her scenes over the summer, before she reportedly began stripping.
"I was surprised when I saw her on Vanderpump Rules and saw that she'd done shows like Gossip Girl because she just seemed so lost and desperate when I met her," said the source.
We just hope that if Laura-Leigh is truly in a financial pickle, she finds a way out soon. Maybe her acting career will take off after We're the Millers is released!
