Lala Kent believes there may be similarities between Tom Sandoval and Raquel Leviss’ months-long affair and Charles Manson’s cult.

The “Vanderpump Rules” star discussed on her “Give Them Lala” podcast Wednesday how the notorious serial killer “preyed on women” who were “lost” and “gave them a safe space” — and likened the situation to her co-stars’ scandal.

“They hung on every word of his, because they didn’t know any different … like she [Leviss] said, ‘I finally felt heard and seen,’ so I’m thinking that that’s kind of the equivalent,” Kent said.

The Give Them Lala founder, 32, also noted why she thinks Leviss, 28, could be easily manipulated by someone like Manson.

“Tom Sandoval is Charles Manson, and Raquel is one of his cult followers,” Kent reiterated.

Kent speculated that the former beauty queen would likely “do what Charles told her to do” and then be say, “‘We should get breakfast burritos. I would love a hot cup of tea,’” calling it “insane.”

“I think we would need to dig deep into whoever did the psych evaluations on the cult members of Charles Manson, and then we would know what really was going on with Raquel,” the reality star added.

Kent emphasized on her podcast that the initial comparison “did not” come from her and she was simply “just repeating what someone else said.”

This is not the first time the Bravolebrity has commented on Leviss’ behavior, though.

Kent previously poked fun at her co-star’s lack of emotion about her affair with Sandoval, 40, by doing a robotic impersonation.

However, the mother of one is not alone as several fans have also expressed their concerns over Leviss’ lack of empathy for the situation.

The former pageant contestant appeared unbothered during a recent “Vanderpump Rules” reunion episode while Ariana Madix, Sandoval’s ex-girlfriend, broke down in tears.

Leviss also remained calm when her ex-BFF Scheana Shay cried over the restraining order that was filed against her.

The entire cast will be back for part three of the reunion, which airs Wednesday at 9 p.m. ET on Bravo. Leviss is set to reportedly drop yet another “bombshell” about Scandoval.

“Guys. If you think it’s been a wild ride thus far. Strap your bloody seatbelts. The madness begins tomorrow,” her ex-fiancé, James Kennedy, teased in a new Instagram video Wednesday.

Producer Alex Baskin also told the Hollywood Reporter earlier this week that the affair “timeline evolves” in a “twist” to the end of the explosive season.
