While she got to a better place after the show wrapped filming — getting engaged to Emmett in September 2018 and getting sober — Kent spiraled again when the season started airing. She noted that the drunker she got, the more she took things out on Emmett. “At least once a week, mad dram would go down between us. I’m taking relationship-ending, call-the-cops kind of drama,” she wrote, calling one incident in Atlanta when she threw his wallet off the balcony of their hotel and drenched his luggage in the bathtub before throwing it over too.
