Disney has announced that the ABC News Studios documentary special, “The Randall Scandal: Love, Loathing & Vanderpump”, is going to be available to stream on Disney+ in the United Kingdom and Ireland on Friday, 4th August 2023.
Bravo’s hit reality show “Vanderpump Rules” has been involved in scandal after scandal, but none more serious than the explosive allegations against movie mogul Randall Emmett, who rose to fame on the heels of his engagement to Bravo megastar Lala Kent.
“The Randall Scandal: Love, Loathing, and Vanderpump,” is an investigation into many of the shocking claims against Emmett, which include allegations of race discrimination, workplace abuse, and questionable on-set behaviour towards actor Bruce Willis as his mental acuity declined ― all of which Emmett denies. The 90-minute documentary features special access to interview footage of Kent, who opens up about her tumultuous relationship with Emmett and how she learned about the accusations against her ex-fiancé.
This new documentary also includes exclusive interviews with those closest to Kent, including Lisa and Easton Burningham, her mother and brother, who describe alarming, never-before-told claims of Emmett’s alleged mistreatment towards Kent, exclusively recount what they regard as Emmett’s disturbing behaviour when Kent gave birth to their daughter, and Kent’s escape from their shared home.
Additional exclusive interviews include Felix Pire, Emmett’s high school friend; Brett Pearson, Martin G’Blae and Anna Szymanska, Emmett’s former assistants who claim the filmmaker subjected them to verbal abuse and workplace harassment; Teresa Huang, a TV writer; Leila Azari, a lawyer for Writers Guild of America West and more. Additional interviews include L.A. Times reporters Amy Kaufman and Meg James, whose investigation “The Man Who Played Hollywood: Inside Randall Emmett’s Crumbling Empire” revealed lawsuits, debts and allegations of abuse against women, assistants and business partners facing Emmett; Matt Belloni, founding partner of Puck News; Heather McDonald, comedian and podcast host; David Yontef, pop culture podcast host; and Alicia Haverland, prop master for Emmet’s film “Midnight in the Switchgrass,” which starred Bruce Willis.
The documentary was previously released on Hulu earlier this year.
