Lala Kent hopes her Christmas gift for Ariana Madix will keep ‘snakes away’ post-Scandoval

Lala Kent has Ariana Madix’s back this Christmas.

The “Vanderpump Rules” star, 33, tells Page Six Style that she’s getting her castmate a special gift to help her ward off “snakes” after surviving ex Tom Sandoval’s earth-shattering cheating scandal this year. 

“I could totally see Ariana rocking this belt bag,” Kent says of The Drop’s Preston belt bag.

“Maybe wearing snakeskin print will keep the actual snakes away?” the “Christmas Slay” singer cheekily adds ahead of her upcoming Amazon Live appearance on Tuesday. 

As Bravo fans are well aware, Madix, 38, had been dating Sandoval, 41, for nearly a decade when she called it quits upon discovering his infidelity with now-ex-BFF Rachel “Raquel” Leviss in March.

In the aftermath of the headline-making affair — dubbed Scandoval — Madix’s fame, fortune and success skyrocketed; in addition to securing a succession of lucrative brand deals, she recently finished in third place on “Dancing With the Stars” Season 32, and will soon play Roxie Hart in Broadway’s “Chicago.”

Kent acknowledged Madix’s status in the shocking “Pump Rules” Season 11 trailer — saying she’s “never experienced someone who gets cheated on and suddenly she becomes God” — but clarified during a Wednesday Amazon Live that her comment wasn’t rooted in jealousy.

“I have always been a fan of hers. I think that that shows throughout the years,” the Give Them Lala Beauty founder assured viewers.

She added, “Have we had our ups and downs? Absolutely. But to see my friend thrive after such heartbreak? I am so happy for her, and I am so proud of her.”

Kent tells us she’s currently in a good place with all of her female co-stars, including Scheana Shay and Katie Maloney — whom she plans to spoil this holiday season with jewelry and clothing, respectively.

“I think Scheana would love these Gacimy gold hoop earrings,” she says of the shimmering accessories she’s giving the part-time pop star, 38.

“They are really fitting the ‘Good as Gold’ vibe, am I right?” Kent quips in reference to Shay’s catchy song.

As for Maloney, 36, Kent thinks the Ailoqing faux leather puffer vest is perfect for her recently divorced pal.

“Katie would look so cute in this,” she enthuses. “It’s perfect for the fashionistas in your life!”

The “Give Them Lala” podcast host is also ready to spoil mom Lisa Burningham with an array of skincare and beauty products.

I’m so excited about giving gifts to my mom this holiday season. She deserves the world!” Kent says, revealing that she’ll be putting together a bundle of beauty items including three TikTok-viral face, body and hair products: Cosrx Snail Mucin, Color Wow Dream Coat Supernatural Spray and Sol de Janeiro Brazilian Bum Bum Cream.

The reality star’s 2-year-old daughter, Ocean — whom she shares with ex-fiancé Randall Emmett — will, of course, be the most spoiled lady this Christmas.

The Bravolebrity plans to add a Lawnmeadow Playset/Swing Set to her backyard for Ocean to play on with friends — and she’s setting her daughter up with a bunch of Disney princess items.

She’s purchased her little girl a swing set and Disney princess figurines.

“I am also getting her a lot of princess dresses because she likes to twirl around in them and she’s super into these Disney princess figurines, so she’s getting a lot of those too!” 

When it comes to herself, Kent is hoping Santa brings her a Renpho eye massager.

“It’s literally life changing. I’m obsessed with the different modes, temperatures and the fact that it can play music via Bluetooth. I really don’t know what’s better than that,” she says. “Who needs the spa?”

Kent’s next Amazon Live will broadcast Tuesday from 3 to 4 p.m. ET.
