Vanderpump Rules’ Tom Sandoval, Ariana Madix Split Amid Raquel Leviss Cheating Allegations

It's over. Vanderpump Rules stars Tom Sandoval and Ariana Madix split after nine years together, a source confirms to Life & Style. The couple sparked breakup speculation following rumors that Tom allegedly cheated with Raquel Leviss.

TMZ was the first to report the news on Friday, March 3. Tom, 39, and Ariana, 37, decided to call it quits shortly after finding out that the Schwartz & Sandy’s cofounder was allegedly unfaithful during their relationship and hooked up with Raquel, 28, the outlet reported. VPR producers heard about the pair’s breakup and documented the full cast’s reactions

Ariana appears to have deactivated her Instagram shortly after news broke of their split. Both Tom and Raquel's social media accounts, however, are still active.

Fellow VPR costar and Raquel’s ex-fiancé, James Kennedy, reacted to the news of Tom and Ariana's reported split via his own Instagram by resharing TMZ's article to his account.

"Hope you all feel as sick as I do. This explains everything," James, 31, wrote in a comment under his post. He then responded to a separate commenter, writing, "Read it and weep. Tom's a f—king creep!"

I have a feeling that Ariana will date a woman after this.

She has already come out as bisexual, and I think she favors women.

Ariana has also mentioned how she has a problem with men because she has been in emotionally abusive relationships in the past.

Tom is still up in the air.

Deep down I think he's bisexual too, but so far has given no indication that he would ever hook up with a guy.

[quote] After Tom-Raquel Scandal, Andy Cohen Says New ‘Vanderpump Rules’ Episodes With Ariana Are ‘Really Shocking’

“Vanderpump Rules” fans were stunned by a TMZ report on Mar. 3 that stars and real-life couple Tom Sandoval and Ariana Madix split after Sandoval allegedly cheated on her with another costar, Raquel Leviss.

Bravo mastermind Andy Cohen started the Mar. 6 episode of his Sirius XM show “Andy Cohen Live” by weighing in on the drama, and how it will affect the current 10th season, which premiered on Feb. 8.

“First of all, when you watch the rest of the season of ‘Vanderpump Rules’ with the overlay of knowing that Raquel and Sandoval — what’s happened with them, and what was possibly happening then — it’s really shocking,” Cohen said. “Even Wednesday night’s episode, you’re not going to believe it. Watching it with this overlay…there’s a moment between Ariana and Raquel where you see where their friendship is, which is good, that you won’t believe.”

Cohen also said there is a reunion looming that will inevitably be filled with emotion.

“There are about 10 more [episodes] to go until the reunion,” he said. “Now, we’re shooting the reunion in about two weeks. This is a reunion that’s going to be…I’m girding my loins.”

Cohen also confirmed rumors that Bravo cameras were rolling over the weekend to catch the fallout to the breakup and how it impacted the cast.

Cohen also noted that he recently had Leviss and costar Scheana Shay on his late-night show “Watch What Happens Live.” The trio played a game in which they chose which of the show’s Toms — Sandoval or costar Tom Schwartz — was more attractive. One of Leviss’ storylines this season focuses on her flirtation with the newly single Schwartz, so Cohen and Shay were both surprised when Raquel chose Sandoval as her preference.

“Scheana said to Raquel, ‘You know, I only picked Sandoval because I knew that you were going to pick Schwartz.’ And Raquel said, ‘Sandoval has abs’ and kind of shrugged. So that was interesting,” Cohen said.

[quote] Raquel Leviss Reportedly Sends Legal Notice to ‘Vanderpump Rules’ Costars Regarding Intimate Video

Taking action? Raquel Leviss reportedly sent a legal notice to several of her Vanderpump Rules costars regarding an intimate FaceTime session she had with Tom Sandoval.

According to TMZ, the 28-year-old California native’s lawyers claimed in the Monday, March 6, letter that the recording of the call — which ultimately led to Sandoval, 39, and Ariana Madix splitting after nine years of dating — was “done illegally without Raquel’s knowledge or consent.”

The outlet reported that Leviss’ attorneys warned that distribution of the “nonconsensual pornography” would violate a law in the California penal code. “This matter should be taken very seriously,” the letter warned, urging anyone in possession of the recording to promptly delete it. The legal notice did not specifically accuse Sandoval of illegally recording the conversation or expose who distributed the video.

Lala Kent seemingly responded to the letter in a since-deleted Instagram Story.

"Raquel, tell your little Mickey Mouse lawyer, that if he has stuff to send over, he can send it to my lawyer," the Utah native said in the clip.

"I've never in my life had a lawyer contact me in my personal email. Alright? I don't know if you know how this works; I know you're pretty brand new to the game — didn't last long, look what you did with your f—king 15 minutes [of fame]. You have something to send over, you can send it to my lawyer."

Us Weekly has reached out to Leviss' team regarding the alleged legal notice.

The letter comes after Us confirmed on Friday, March 3, that the TomTom cofounder and Madix, 37, called it quits after she discovered that Sandoval had cheated on her with Leviss. A source exclusively told Us that the pair had been “having problems for a while,” adding that things “only came to a breaking point” on Thursday, March 2.

The Schwartz & Sandy’s entrepreneur addressed the scandal via Instagram on Saturday, March 4.

“Hey, I fully understand and deserve ur anger & disappointment towards me, but please leave [Tom] Schwartz, my friends and family out of this situation … Schwartz specifically only found out about this very recently, and most definitely did not condone my actions. This was a very personal thing,” the Missouri native wrote.

Sandoval then asked fans to remember that he isn’t the only person invested in his restaurant, which was inundated with negative reviews amid the controversy.

“Also, Schwartz & Sandy’s might have my name on it, but also there are 3 other partners and 20 employees, who especially rely on the restaurant for income for them and their families. Just like TomTom, I’m a small part of a much bigger thing,” the Bravolebrity pleaded. “Please direct ur anger towards me and not them. They did nothing wrong.”

Madix, meanwhile, has received an outpouring of support from friends, costars and fans since learning of her ex’s infidelity.

Kristen Doute — who dated Sandoval before the Florida native — pledged her allegiance to Madix via Instagram Stories on Friday.

“I don't know why I feel like I need to make this clear, but there's so many people right now wondering if this is making me happy,” the Pump Rules alum said. “And you guys, Ariana and I've been really good friends for many, many years now. So, I am team Ariana — all day, every day. That's what's up.”

Scheana Shay, for her part, posted footage of her and longtime bestie Madix at a Tove Lo convert on Friday night.

“We rally,” she captioned the clip.

Katie Maloney and Kent, 32, meanwhile, haven't minced words, coming for both Sandoval and Leviss in various Instagram posts.

Responding to a fan tweet of her and Madix that read, "I hope they burn it all down!!!" Maloney, 36, wrote, "Just you f—king wait."

The "Give Them Lala" podcaster, for her part, reposted an Us headline that read, "Raquel Leviss Is Over Drama With Lala Kent; Says ‘I Don’t Have Energy’ for Lala.” Kent fired back, "I suggest you get some energy for me. You're gonna need it."

[quote] Raquel Leviss Suffers Black Eye After Allegedly Being Punched By Scheana Shay!

Raquel Leviss claims co-star Scheana Shay PUNCHED her in the face and we have stunning photos of the damage!

According to legal documents, obtained by The Blast, the “Vanderpump Rules” star is currently engulfed in a very SCANDALOUS affair with her co-star, Tom Sandoval, and “SCANDOVAL” was born. But, turns out the situation might have been physical -- and the pictures are brutal.

Leviss is asking for protection from Scheana and filed a temporary restraining order against her co-star in Los Angeles County Courts.

In the filing, Leviss says Shay pushed her up against a "brick wall causing injury to the back of the head and punched me in the face causing injury to my left eye."

The allegations continue, "currently mutual friends and coworkers are telling me she doesn't regret the physical attack on me and would do it again if she found that further emotional distress was caused to our mutual friend."

The injuries Leviss sustained are noted as "black eye and cut/scar to left eyebrow, blurred vision. and swelling to the left eye."

As we said, the photos are insane!

If you've been living under a rock, here's the nitty-gritty on how the affair started and why it's gotten SO INSANE!

Sandoval has been dating ‘VPR’ cast member Ariana Madix for the last decade but has been having a side fling with Leviss since this past summer.

Madix and Leviss were very close friends, until that all came crashing down on Saturday, March 4th.

Sandoval was performing at his restaurant TomTom, which he co-owns with ‘VPR’ cast member Tom Schwartz.

His phone reportedly fell out of his pocket while onstage and Madix picked it up. She found a scandalous, X-rated video sent from Leviss to Sandoval and that’s when things blew up.

Since then, many of Madix’s cast mates have come to her defense including Lala Kent, Katie Maloney and Scheana Shay.

Leviss has issued legal docs to her cast mates over the X-rated video, which really pissed off Kent.

The legal docs use Leviss’ legal name, Rachel Leviss, but has been confirmed she is the one who filed it on Tuesday, March 7th.

‘VPR’ theorists believe Leviss filed the TRT to stay away from Shay during the reunion special.

It is set to be filmed in about two weeks, and fans of the show know Andy Cohen will not allow ANY cast member to miss this.

Following Sandoval’s updated apology, which names Madix several times, Kirbie Johnson explained why Leviss may have filed the TRT.

“Speaking of Raquel, she has filed a restraining order against Scheana ‘Shennanigans’ Shay. The hearing is scheduled for March 29th in Van Nuys. Some people feel this is Raquel’s way of getting out of going to the reunion, cause Andy shared they’d be filming in two weeks. In no universe is Andy going to let any single one of these cast members miss this reunion. Mark my words,” Johnson said.

She suggested a quick fix for the reunion.

Put half of them at Pump and the other half at TomTom.

It must be noted that the two restaurants are located next door to one another, so any physical, verbal or mental drama could definitely spill over.

Now that we know what we know about Sandoval and Raquel, watching the latest episode really made me realize what a fucking whore Raquel is. Pretending to be Ariana's besty, all the while fucking her boyfriend.

Then when they go out to the restaurant and she snatches Garcelle's son away from the other whore Lala and sticks her tongue down his throat on the dance floor. This girl is a straight up skanky cunt. The only one who seemed to realize it back then was Katie's friend. She's the only one who spoke up and called out Raquel's fake innocence act.

As an aside, what's the big deal with Garcelle's son? Why does everyone salivate over him? I don't find him attractive at all, and that teardrop gang tattoo is a major turnoff. Were the cast members told to fawn over him at Garcelle's behest?

Cinéma vérité. Vanderpump Rules fans have wondered whether Bravo editors are recutting episodes in the aftermath of Scandoval, but Andy Cohen says they're not — and this week's installment may be the most shocking yet.

"Guys, you're going to watch Wednesday's episode. You are going to think that it was recut, OK?" the Bravo exec, 54, said during the Monday, March 13, episode of Andy Cohen Live on SiriusXM. "It was not recut. This was the episode."

The Most Talkative author said he'd only recently watched a screener after receiving it "weeks ago," and he too was surprised by how it felt to watch after Tom Sandoval and Ariana Madix's recent split. Us Weekly confirmed on March 3 that the TomTom co-owner, 40, and the Florida native, 37, called it quits after Sandoval was caught cheating with their Pump Rules costar Raquel Leviss.

"I watched it and I was like, 'People are going to think we did this, or we moved stuff up,'" Cohen said. "The conversations that go on between Katie [Maloney] and Lala [Kent] and Raquel are not to be believed in the light of what has come out. But I'm telling y'all, the episode was not touched. This is how it was going to be shown, which makes it all the more shocking. You won't believe it."

Fans wondered whether the show's Wednesday, March 8, episode was reedited after the cheating scandal made headlines, but Kent, 32, claimed that it wasn't. “I may get in trouble for saying this,” the Give Them Lala author said in an Instagram Story video on Thursday, March 9. “But I’m gonna say it anyway. I heard … people are talking about how editors of VPR probably went back through and, like, tweaked things to kind of, like, align with what happened. Not true.”

The Utah native went on to allege that no other season 10 episodes have been recut in the wake of Madix and Sandoval's split. "What you guys are gonna see this season — before we obviously know what we know now — was very much going to be the story line of … you know who," Kent said of Leviss, 28. "With or without what just happened in the last week.”

During the March 8 episode, Leviss told Maloney, 36, that she'd asked her ex-husband, Tom Schwartz, to make out. The Schwartz & Sandy's cofounder, 40, turned down the former pageant queen, but his ex-wife still wasn't happy about the situation. (Schwartz and Leviss later hooked up at Scheana Shay's August 2022 wedding to Brock Davies.)

The drama continued in a teaser for this week's episode, which showed Kent telling Leviss that she wouldn't want her potential boyfriends spending time with Leviss while she was drinking.

"I will say this, you drinking? I would never trust you around my man," the Give Them Lala Beauty founder told her costar.

The Sonoma State University graduate shot back, "Thank God you don't have a man to, like, f–king have around."

The conversation came after the events of the March 8 episode, which saw Leviss making out with Oliver Saunders — the eldest son of Garcelle Beauvais — after Kent expressed interest in him.

"It is strange to me, though," Kent said in a confessional interview. "Raquel had zero interest in Oliver until I said, 'Damn! He kinda fine.' And then, all of a sudden, she's treating this like a pageant and is in competition mode with me."

During the March 9 episode of her "Give Them Lala" podcast, Kent said that she was suspicious of Leviss during the first round of filming for season 10, which took place last year. "During the 10 weeks that we filmed, there was a scent I was picking up," she told listeners. "Katie also was like, 'I agree, I'm sniffing something too.'"

BRAVO has been running all the past seasons of VPR since the news came out. It really changes the narrative of a lot of the series. Tom's alleged earlier cheating with Ariana, among others, and his reaction to the Kristen/Jax cheating. The friendships of some of the regular cast members. Raquel's innocence act and her willingness to let Lala support her with James. The list goes on. I know it's a TV show, but the trainwreck is real.

[quote]Raquel isn’t the innocent dim bulb people think she is.

She is dim, but desperately thirsty. I remember recappers years ago (when this show used to be somewhat interesting) marveling at the extent to which she'd allow James to humiliate her, all to stay on the show. And her she is, the filling in between a Tom & Tom sandwich. I guess if you're going to be a Bravo celebrity, go big (or actually small, in this case). As for Tom, I'm shocked he's actually a heterosexual. I fully believed that his relationship with Ariana was more of a friendship in which they both fucked around.

[quote] Raquel calls Peter Madrigal a "Starting Pony"

If there was one remaining Vanderpump Rules cast member that Raquel Leviss could count on for friendship, that would be Peter Madrigal. Well, except for Tom Schwartz. He still plays pickleball with Randall Emmett. Enough said.

Raquel has completely alienated her co-stars after news of her seven-month-long affair with Tom Sandoval leaked. Everyone is Team Ariana Madix. But now Peter has joined the ranks of the pissed-off VPR cast. One careless comment from Raquel was all it took. Never go after a man’s ego. Always call him a stallion.

It all started in the Watch What Happens Live studio. Raquel appeared in the infamous episode just before her affair with Sandoval surfaced. Her Pump Rules co-star Scheana Shay was also there.

According to Page Six, Raquel labeled Peter a “starting pony” during the interview. Peter said the former beauty pageant queen could “go f–k” herself.

Raquel made the comment after host Andy Cohen asked her if she regretted dating Peter. The two VPR stars reportedly went on a few dates together, before Raquel dumped him.

“Peter’s, like, a great starting pony to get back into the dating world,” Raquel said. She did compliment his empathy though. “He was such a great shoulder to cry on. I mean, look at those shoulders,” Raquel added. Andy covered his face with the cue cards he was holding after Raquel’s cringe comment.

“I’m nobody’s starter pony,” Peter responded while on the Alison Rosen Is Your New Best Friend podcast last week. “I always keep an even keel, but, my God, who the hell do you think you are? … Who the f–k do you think you are?” Peter added.

Peter waded into #Scandoval during his interview. He said, “I’m very team Ariana, and I’ve been friends with Tom forever, but, man, this is beyond f–ked up.”

The illicit affair was symbolized by matching lightning bolt necklaces that Tom and Raquel wore in plain sight. Bold. Peter likened the trinkets to a “wedding ring.”

Well, it’s obvious now why Raquel didn’t want to date Peter. But does she even want to be with Sandoval? The price she paid was too high it seems. After a source claimed that Raquel and the Schwartz & Sandy’s co-owner wanted to “be together,” she issued her own statement and fled LA.

Raquel, apparently, “cares” for Sandoval but needs to “heal” and “understand” why she participated in this betrayal of Ariana. The focus is to “learn to make better” choices.

Her former love interest (well, at least he was interested anyway) speculated as to whether Tom and Raquel are in love. Peter responded, “They might be.”

And Ariana had sex with Lala four years ago while living with Tom. Maybe Tom and Ariana were in an open relationship that derailed.

[quote] Vanderpump Rules’ Tom Sandoval Says He Had ‘Sex 4 Times a Year’ With Ariana Before Raquel Affair

Getting messy! Vanderpump Rules star Tom Sandoval said he and Ariana Madix only had “sex four times a year” before he began his affair with costar Raquel Leviss, per the midseason trailer released on Monday, March 20.

In what appears to be a tense conversation between Tom, 39, and Ariana, 37, the Schwartz and Sandy’s owner says they had only been “having sex like four times a year” amid their rocky romance.

“I cannot have sex with someone who feels like a stranger,” Ariana can be heard saying in response to her boyfriend of nine years, who was caught cheating with their costar Raquel, 28.

Tom later says, “I wish we both would’ve tried harder” to which Ariana claps back, “You don’t deserve one f—king tear of mine.”

Clearly, tensions were high between the former couple during the conversation as Tom asked, “You want anything?” and Ariana simply responds, “For you to die.”

It appears Bravo fans will see the fallout between Tom and Ariana, as his affair with Raquel, which reportedly began last summer, is exposed.

Raquel also kisses Tom Schwartz, who is divorced from Pump Rules star Katie Maloney, in the season 10 trailer. She is later seen making out with Real Housewives of Beverly Hills star Garcelle Beauvais’ son, Oliver, who was married at the time.

The Bravolebrity wed Samantha Saunders in May 2020 after they welcomed their son, Oliver Jr. In September 2022, Oliver’s wife accused him of “committing adultery with coworkers and guests” of Vanderpump Paris. Oliver filed for divorce from Samantha in January 2023.

For her part, Raquel said Oliver “misled her” into believing he was single at the time of their makeout. “I would like to clarify that I did not know Oliver had a wife,” she told Page Six in October 2022. “I was getting ready to go on a date with him when I found out he had a wife, so it completely changed the dynamic of the day and my mindset going into that.”

In addition to Raquel and Tom’s antics, it seems that viewers will see the SUR group’s reaction to the shocking cheating scandal.

“This is a full blown love affair,” Scheana Shay says at one point before Katie yells, “I want to light them both on f—king fire.”

Although it’s unclear who each cast member is talking about in the drama-filled clip, James Kennedy, who was previously engaged to Raquel before their split in December 2021, appears to tell his girlfriend, Ally Lewber, that someone “wants to f—k the s—t out of Raquel.”

Raquel can later be seen telling someone, “I don’t f—king regret our relationship,” but it’s not apparent who she is talking about.

[quote] Vanderpump Rules star Ariana Madix lands Lifetime movie, sex toy endorsement amid cheating scandal.

It's been a tough month for Vanderpump Rules star and would-be sandwich shop impressario Ariana Madix.

Not only did she dump her partner of nine years Tom Sandoval and his unfortunate facial hair after she found out he'd been cheating on her with fellow Pump Rules cast mate Raquel Leviss — but the drama has played out on the internet for all to see and pick apart.

Now, with the VPR reunion set to film tomorrow — and Leviss confirming her participation — fans of the show will be eagerly awaiting some answers and maybe even some comeuppance. While, Bravohlics may be thirsting for blood, Madix is riding a wave of good will and good fortune, which includes a role in a new Lifetime movie.

In Buying Back My Daughter, Meagan Good (who is also an executive producer) plays Dana, the mother of 16-year-old daughter Alicia (Faith Wright), who sneaks out of the house to attend a party, only to go missing. After almost a year of searching for Alicia, Dana finds her listed for sale in an online escort ad. She and her husband Curtis (Roger Cross) spring into action to attempt to "buy back their daughter." Madix stars as Karen, a police officer who helps investigate the case and has a personal connection to the story.

And perhaps signaling that she won't be needing a man or anyone else for a while, Madix announced an endorsement deal with Bellesa, a sex toy company, on her Instagram.

"Sometimes you just gotta change up your vibe," Madix wrote, holding up a cute little vibrator she's giving away to her followers.

Tom Schwartz Shares an Update on His Triplet Brothers (PICS):

We're here to wish Tom Schwartz's triplet brothers, Bert, Billy, and Brandon, a very Happy Birthday. The triplets, who have appeared on Vanderpump Rules in the past, are celebrating their special day. And you can bet their big brother is excited about it.

"HAPPY BDAY TO MY DEAR BROTHERS. The trips. The 3 Amigos. The boys," he wrote, alongside a set of family photos from over the years. "Love you all."

The throwback photos include the foursome as kids on bikes, the triplets as young teens hanging by the pool, and finally, the four brothers partying together.

In case you were wondering how old the triplets are, if we've done our math correctly, they are now 37.

When The Daily Dish spoke to Tom back in 2017, he spilled all about his brothers, which you can check out for yourself above.

Back in 2017, Tom didn't hold back about his brothers, who are among a handful of siblings, including their sister as well as two half sisters and a half brother.

"The ballad of Billy, Bert, and Brandon. They're the best. I love my brothers so much," he told us about William, Robert, and Brandon, at the time. "They're such sweet kids. They have such a great dynamic. It's a dynamic that only triplets can have. They have so much history and chemistry."

He continued, "They're like the three stooges and I mean that in an endearing way, not in a judgmental way. I love hanging out with them. It's non-stop entertainment and they have huge hearts. They're such good kids. I like to bust their balls. I do give them a hard time, but ultimately I love them."

As for the fact that they are triplets, well, Tom noted, "They didn't fully utilize the fact that they were triplets because in the beginning, they did look identical," he recalled. "They weren't technically identical, but they looked identical for a long [time], but now their weights have fluctuated a little bit or they have different facial hair. They're really easy to distinguish now."

[quote] Did Schena spend all her money on weddings? All the other cast members got houses.

All the other cast members were couples.

Tom/Ariana, Tom/Katie, Jax/Britney. So they could pool their money.

Scheana was the only single (main cast member) on the show. So she paid for her apartment all by herself.

Los Angeles real estate is not cheap. Minimum $1,000,000 for a house in a middle class area, which is why they all bought in the suburbs.

Scheana'a apartment is on the water, so that's not cheap either.

Funny thing is that now Tom and Ariana are stuck living together (a previous article mentioned it) because they bought the house together.

So either they have to sell and split the money and buy apartments like Scheana, or they're stuck hating each other but still have to live together.

I can see this being orchestrated. Arianna and Tom are making the snowball roll into an avalanche of interest. For the show, and the businesses now involved.

I also have a hard time believing that this breakup wasn't planned for optimal effect. One thing Sandy has talked about since the beginning was wanting kids, (he and Kristen talking about creating the cutest little antichrist the world could hope to see). Arianna, has also always been totally open about no kids, ever. They made the most out of their relationship together, but the phone falling out during a concert- I don't believe there wouldn't be a lock on that phone, and I know it's a Tom, so the bottom of stupid he's capable of hasn't been scratched yet. But I'm not buying this wasn't planned for the sake of the show and the businesses tethered to it.

Or fans in flyoverstan? There's also already a high failure rate in that industry, how likely was this place having legitimate success, how long before people forget the scandal to be seen or see some possible drama?

Lala should be more careful about what she says on camera. If Randall ever decides to get into a custody battle with her, all he has to do is show that scene of Lala taking the guy to her room, then telling the girls later about how much she loved having her pussy stuffed with his big black cock.

I'm currently watching the season where Britney and Jax were engaged and going to get married. I think it was just before Covid.

And I realized that this was the season where they tried to introduce an entirely new cast of younger people, which TOTALLY FAILED.

I had completely forgotten about them!

It's funny because after the season aired, the new cast members all got fired from Bravo for making "racist" comments, as did Stassi and Kristen.

They ALL got fired! It was a total bloodbath..lol.

Then Covid hit, and the show essentially went on life support until this season.

So these people should all be thanking their lucky stars for Tom and Raquel's affair, otherwise this should would have been completely dead.

That was a terrible bunch - not one of them was a keeper. It may have been a season before, but remember when they had that annoying tranny Billie Lee (or something like that). As obnoxious as the VR cast is, Billie Lee kind of demonstrated the problems in the workplace: forever being offended because she wasn't one of the girls, getting in aggressive fights with the women (Lala, if I recall, or maybe Jax, who knows) and rather than viewing it as typical workplace bullshit, viewing everything from the lens of "trans persecution." And then throwing in Lisa's face that her soon was canoodling with a tranny. It was all just so weird & unfortunate, even by Bravo standards (or lack thereof)

First rule of Vanderpump Rules....is that there is NO Vanderpump Rules without Kristen Doute

Kristen serendipitously moved to LA and answered a Craigslist ad for a roommate which led to living with the two Toms. She got a job at Villa Blanca, leading to Tom Sandoval also getting a job there meeting Ariana. Kristen then introduced Jax to Stassi, leading to the first season of Vanderpump Rules as they all move over to work at Sur. Kristen introduced Tom Schwartz to Katie, leading to the second season. Kristen then intoduces Stassi to Beau, leading to their marriage and two children

I'm jaded enough to believe that Tom and Ariana were on the verge of breaking up, and instead of doing it quietly and in private, they decided to do it on the show and make it a HUGE deal.

They knew they could get ratings if they broke up during the show, rather than if they did it off camera.

In that case, it completely worked.

Also, it would have been easy to rope in Raquel as the villain, because it would also give her a storyline, which she desperately wanted.

If you'll notice, after all of the drama and hate she's receiving, Raquel's Instagram is still open to the public and not set to private.

Most people getting that much hate would shut it down.

But she doesn't care, because her goal was to get attention.

I can completely believe this; they've never seemed like a real couple. She's clearly a lesbian & wants different things from life & Tom is well....

I started watching this again because of Scandoval, after giving up on it several years ago. I started a rewatch as well. I am finishing season 3 now. Some thoughts on the cast:

Stassi-what a cunt, it is amazing how long she lasted on this show. She is quite problematic-racist, homophobic, entitled, gleefully admitting to domestic abuse (she thinks it is hilarious that she regularly beat the crap out of Jax when they were together). She is the embodiment of everything Datalounge hates about straight women.

Katie-I actually feel bad for her, which I didn’t the first time. She has an Eeyore personality, and she is being constantly gaslit by her “friend” Stassi and her husband, Schwartz, who treats her like dogshit. She wants her husband to support her and be kind to her; but while he loves her, he does not like her. While I feel bad for her, she is still a petty, unpleasant asshole.

Schwartz-it is revolting that he is still behaving the same way he did in season 1. He’s not a cute male model anymore; he’s a doughy middle aged man without balls. He is perfect for Rachel/Raquel.

James-a misogynistic pig. How someone hasn’t strangled him is beyond me. It is like all of West Hollywood (or at least the block of Robertson between Pump and Sur) have to suffer for his shitty upbringing and awful personality.

Kristen-this bitch was so desperate to be on TV she allowed herself to be portrayed for several years as a Alex Forrestesque lunatic who liked to hang out at the dumpsters behind her former job so she can fuck with her ex.

Jax-they all do coke, but Jax is an addict, always sweating and gross. He went downhill quick. And he is a sociopath.

Sandoval-I always found him annoying and cheesy, but harmless. The impression I get from this season is he was stressed the fuck out about opening this restaurant, he felt he couldn’t turn to Ariana because she was doing her own thing (her sandwich shop with Katie/death of her dog/etc) and probably didn’t coddle him the way he wanted, so he turned to that weirdo Raquel.

Ariana-seemingly normal and nice-so why is she hanging out with these assholes? Also, there were a lot of rumors that her relationship with Sandoval started while he was still dating Kristen, and you lose him the way you got him.

Scheana-self absorbed, poor taste and not book smart-nevertheless I do think she is ultimately a good person. The fact that she came from a more working class background is all that cunt Stassi needed to hate her. She needs to watch out for Lala-I bet Lala will fuck her husband Brock within a year.

Lala-who the fuck does this bitch think she is? She was Randall Emmett’s mistress for years and left that pig when it was clear that his finances are a teetering house of cards. She isn’t as sexually irresistible as she claims she is-otherwise she would have been getting fucked constantly for the last two years. She has no business judging Raquel. And why hasn’t anybody called her out on the cringy Blaccent?

Raquel- she must be on the spectrum, or she is just a megacunt. She doesn’t pick up social cues from people, she is very immature, and she acts stupid while actually being able to cut cunts like Lala, Katie and James down. I am very curious to het excuses at the reunion.

LVP-she seems disengaged these days. Because this show has successfully added only a few new characters since season 1, her role as Madam/Mrs.Garrett doesn’t make as much sense anymore; more of the cast is pushing 40, and she is no spring chicken either. Raquel is the only one left in the main cast working at Sur.

The amazing thing about this show is they are ALL despicable people, except Ariana. That is why Scandoval is so shocking and why this show fucks with your head-a homewrecking whore like Raquel can come across as a victim of bullying, and earn some sympathy from the audience, because homewrecking whore Lala Is behaving like a loudmouth, judgmental cunt towards her.

Well, from recalling the earlier seasons, your analysis is spot on, though I think what also triggers the Stassi hate is that Scheana is a bit of a pet of Pandy, who used to factor into the show. Stassi is a miserable brat & the sly, enterprising Scheana fills a gap, which infuriates Stassi. As far as being "cancelled", what happened to Stassi I think could be best characterized as "karma". Moreover, Bravo was likely looking for an excuse to cut her (and Jax and his wife, Porkchop) loose and she handed it to them.

You're right that Lisa seems less engaged, but I'm really struck about how old she looks. Ironically, I think her attempts to look like the hot young thing she used to be instead of a matriarchal order women just makes her look even worse.

[quote] Tom Sandoval Crashes and Burns in Excuse-Filled Affair Explanation

Tom Sandoval, the Vanderpump Rules star who made headlines six weeks ago when it was revealed that he cheated on his partner of nine years, Ariana Madix, by carrying on a months-long secret affair with fellow cast member Raquel Leviss (herself the ex-fiancé of another cast member, James Kennedy) has broken his silence.

This is no simple affair: it’s Scandoval, the paradigm-shattering, Bravo-altering adultery fiasco that’s prompted every current and former VPR cast member scrambling to their podcast of choice to air their side of things.

Sandoval has chosen Howie Mandel as his sympathetic ear, and it quickly becomes clear why: Mandel has never seen Vanderpump Rules in his life and has no idea what’s going on, which clears the runway for the Schwartz and Sandy’s Lounge co-owner to say completely insane things unchallenged.

“I love Ariana, I still love Ariana and I care about her, but we, for a while, have and had been sort of having our own lives,” Sandoval told Mandel. “We were together for nine years, obviously we built a business and had a house together, we were a brand. Like many relationships, it felt like it became more like best friends, family, sometimes roommates. There was a lot of ways that the relationship was lacking intimacy, connection.”

“I accepted it—you know, Ken and Lisa, they don’t have sex all the time,” Sandoval said, referring to Ken Todd and Lisa Vanderpump of Vanderpump Rules. “I got porn, I can go crack one off in the bathroom. But there are so many other perks! The building of the brand, the everything, the image of it all.”

What stage of narcissism is this? Late stage, or ultra-late stage?

Sandoval was friends first with Leviss, he said, and admired her so much, he attempted to set her up with his close friend Tom Schwartz because he found her to be just so incredible.

When Sandoval and Leviss shared their “magnetic” first kiss, he said he “got [his] ass” into therapy to try to get over it, but that their connection was so undeniable, the need to be together won out.


“You were in a long term relationship with [Madix], and this happens to a lot of people and this happens to everybody, through no fault of either of you, you’re growing apart,” Mandel says haplessly to Sandoval, which is a fascinating way to excuse what was going on. “What I’m asking though is, knowing that, you each know it internally, did you ever sit down and say this isn’t working?”

Sandoval claims he then, over an extended period of time, planted the seeds of a breakup for Madix in couple’s therapy, communicating subliminally that he wanted to break up with her without actually breaking up with her.

“I was seeing Raquel as often as I could, which I know sounds horrible, and FaceTiming her all time, and like, Ariana just really didn’t notice, because that’s how separate our lives were,” Sandoval says.

Finally, Sandoval says, he officially dumped Madix two weeks before she reportedly discovered the affair with Leviss accidentally.

“I sit down to talk with her again, and she’s like, ‘I’m not letting you leave me, you’re gonna have to force me out of this relationship,’ and I was like, ‘Ariana, I don’t think I can be faithful in a relationship with you right now,’” Sandoval told Mandel. “She’s like, ‘If you break up with me, you will be effectively ending my life.’ I didn’t know what to do. She was in complete denial and not accepting it.”

“But we were broken up,” Sandoval said of the night Madix discovered his affair with Leviss. “She knew we were broken up.” BE FOR REAL.

I think it’s because Ariana is the only person on this show who is relatable and relatively normal, and the rest of them are monsters. Also Tom has always had this “nice guy” reputation since he became involved with her.

But there have been warning signs for years that all wasn’t well. He has been complaining for years about their lack of a sex life. Also they met up when he was still with Kristen.

Also, Raquel has always seemed like a dimwit with a big mouth. It is surprising to me that she kept this under wraps for this long, and as much as she is a repulsive asshole, watching her leave cunts like Lala and Katie speechless with a quick comeback or teardown is fun to watch.

Not sure if Sandoval considers himself "Latino," along with the Mexicans in LA.

First off, his father is Latino and his mother is white European.

Second, not sure if he has Mexican heritage. He could be South American, Puerto Rican, Cuban, Spanish European, or something else. He has never elaborated on that.

Third, he's from the Midwest (Ohio, I think). So culturally, he really has nothing in common with Los Angeles Mexicans/Latinos.

[quote] 'Vanderpump Rules' star Raquel Leviss checks into mental health treatment facility

Raquel Leviss — the Vanderpump Rules personality, whose affair with co-star Tom Sandoval has been splashed all over the internet for the last month — has checked into a mental health treatment facility.

"Raquel and her family decided before the relationship was discovered that she would enter a voluntary facility for mental health counseling," a rep for the Bravo personality said in a statement obtained by multiple news outlets. "She was scheduled to go in pre-reunion," which taped on March 23, "but decided she wanted to finish her filming commitment. Bravo and production were aware and in support of her journey towards better mental health."

The rep added that Leviss is not in rehab for substance abuse issues but in a program focused on "mental health and trauma therapy."

Leviss's spokesperson has not yet responded to Yahoo Entertainment's request for comment.

In early March, it was revealed that Leviss and Sandoval carried on a months-long affair while he was in a nine-year relationship with Ariana Madix. Madix uncovered the relationship after seeing a sexually explicit video of Leviss on Sandoval's phone and scrolling through their chat history. Madix broke up with the TomTom bar owner and musician.

Both Leviss and Sandoval apologized for their roles in the cheating scandal. For her part, Leviss apologized "for my actions and my choices foremost to Ariana, and to my friends and the fans so invested in our relationships. There is no excuse, I am not a victim and I must own my actions and I deeply regret hurting Ariana."

Leviss went on to reveal that she had been in counseling learning about her "patterns of codependency and addiction to being and feeling loved." She said she was hopeful therapy would help to end her "unhealthy behavioral cycle" and vowed to make it a priority to "protect" her mental health and "learn" from these mistakes.

Earlier this week, Sandoval gave his first interview amid the scandal dubbed "Scandoval" on the Howie Mandel Does Stuff podcast. In it, he detailed his first kiss with the SUR server — last year in the backyard of the home he shared with Madix.

"We just kissed," he said. "It was magnetic. We were talking, moving closer, and as we were talking, as time went on, we would just start talking closer and closer, and then all of a sudden, we’re kissing."

Of the spark, he said, I felt something that I hadn’t felt in so long, like, emotionally." He went on to call Leviss "awesome," kind," "smart," witty," fun," "beautiful" and "f***ing amazing."

He also said that before things took a romantic turn, Leviss was "a source of strength" for him as he navigated his allegedly unhappy and unhealthy relationship with Madix.

I am rewatching some earlier seasons. There have been signs for YEARS that Tom and Ariana were in a bad relationship. He has complained about their sex life since season 4, and they have less and less in common as the years go by. I bet he’s been fucking around on her for years.

And James’ mother looks like she could be Kristen’s sister. Creepy.

Billie Lee is a vile cunt and Pandora is a stuck up bitch.

The loss of Jax, Kristen and Stassi really hurt this show. Stassi and Jax were the Alphas and their logical successors-Lala and James-don’t work, because they are revolting people-there was something about Stassi and Jax that made them interesting to watch. Lala is just a mistress with a Blaccent and James is just an angry drunken cokehead.

Kristen is a chaos agent-she throws a grenade and walks away with glee, and doesn’t give a FUCK if people don’t want her around.

I get the feeling James was raised as the golden child. If you have seen his brother, he is a bit of a horse face like his father. His mother seems a trainwreck, trying to be his best friend rather than his parent. He seems to walk through life feeling like he is owed something. He went as far as to bite the hands that feeds him by getting into a fight with Max, Lisa's son. I have never seen him be a decent human being on the show yet somehow they all stay friends with him. My only guess is he must have a big dick because no one would put up with that shit.

I watched all of Season 1 recently, and to Kristen's credit, she defended Scheana on a few occasions.

She flat out told Stassi she was being too judgmental.

Then again, it could be because Kristen knew that she had already hooked up with Stassi's boyfriend Jax, and she was just trying to soften the blow in case Stassi ever found out.

That said, Kristen knows she's a whore and she owns it.

Ariana has switched to a tiny meat oriental. Is this the opposite of a white closeted male dating an oriental female? I guess white closeted females date them too!

Mystery man identified! Ariana Madix was spotted packing on the PDA with fitness coach Daniel Wai at Coachella amid the Scandoval drama.

The Vanderpump Rules star, 37, and Wai made headlines all throughout the first weekend of Coachella, beginning on Friday, April 14. Madix shared an Instagram Story holding hands with the fitness guru on day 1, while he uploaded a photo cozying up to the Florida native to his Instagram Story on Saturday, April 15. On day three of the Indio, California, music festival, per footage obtained by TMZ, the pair made out and danced during one of the first sets of the evening on Sunday, April 16.

Madix’s PDA with Wai comes one month after Us Weekly confirmed that she learned longtime boyfriend Tom Sandoval had been having an affair with Pump Rules costar Raquel Leviss.

“We just kissed. It was magnetic,” the TomTom co-owner, 40, admitted on the “Howie Mandel Does Stuff” podcast on Tuesday, April 11, of his August 2022 hookup with Leviss, 28. “I felt something that I hadn’t felt in so long emotionally.” He added: “The feelings were something very, very strong. Those feelings that I had started to take over in a sense. Logic went out the window. Because I wasn’t experiencing that [with Ariana] — I hadn’t experienced that [before].”

According to Sandoval’s business partner, Tom Schwartz — who also made out with Leviss in August 2022 — “The one-night stand was in August and then it became, from my point of view, it became an emotional affair,” the Schwartz & Sandy’s co-founder, 40, revealed on Watch What Happens Live With Andy Cohen earlier this month. “Which is still inappropriate, but I didn’t think it was linear. [Then] in January, he came to me and told me that he was in love with Raquel.”

After the fallout, Sandoval and Leviss — who is currently seeking mental health treatment amid the scandal — publicly apologized to Madix for their affair. On Howie Mandel's podcast, Sandoval revealed that he and Leviss are "taking a break" for now and are “not putting any label on [their relationship].”

The vast majority of Sandoval and Leviss’ Pump Rules costars, meanwhile, have publicly — and repeatedly — slammed their actions. Madix, for her part, broke her silence on the drama two weeks after her split from Sandoval, thanking her friends for sticking by her side.

“When I have felt like I couldn’t even stand, you all have given me the strength to continue and seen me through my darkest hours,” Madix wrote via Instagram in March. “To say I have been devastated and broken is an understatement. However, I know that I am not in this alone. So many of my closest friends are also grieving this loss right now and reeling from this betrayal on so many levels. … What doesn’t kill me better run.”

[quote]The whole bit with Raquel, Oliver, and Oliver's wife seemed staged.

It seemed *extremely* staged, even by reality TV standards, though it seems to have been developed with the idea of making Raquel seem like a victim of mean girl-ism, rather being one of the first indications that she's far more cunning & manipulative than she appears.

After watching this week's episode (or some recent episode): - Good lord, Ken looks like some re-animated corpse, complete with stuffed animal fur glued to the side of this decaying skull. The close ups of him on my HDTV were just...unsettling

- Schwartz is definitely getting the Real Housewives "bad edit" this year; I think his asshole-ish personality has always been there, but he's been able to play the Good Cop compared to Katie, but without her (and add to that, his tireless support of Super Douche Sandoval), he just comes off looking really bad. No wonder he's posting vanity shot pictures of himself with poodles

James is reality TV gold. No wonder Jax hated him so much. He's so messy & volatile but vulnerable enough not to seem completely pathetic.

Raquel should be hated not so much for her Mean Girl/Hussy ways, but for her extreme vocal fry and the blank "I've just had a lobotomy" look on her face most of the time

I think the producers figured out what was going on, but these self absorbed idiots didn’t during filming-they probably thought it was some bullshit plot point.

Vanderpump probably didn’t feel the story was moving quick enough, so (shades of Lucy Lucy Apple Juicy) she made doddering old Ken waddle out to the kitchen in his Depends to declare that Rachel slept over at Sandoval’s house while Ariana was sleeping. He is 80 but in that scene he sounded like a 12 year old girl.

These final episodes are total cringe to watch because the Toms & Raquel think they're being coy, yet they fool no one, the producers clearly know what's going on, but love getting them to blatantly lie on camera, but Ariana clearly isn't in the joke. She has no idea what's going on, though I suspect she's got her own mental health challenges (she seems genuinely depressed) and believing Tom is mostly like the path of least resistance. At least that dimwitted phony Raquel will finally be kicked to the curb, but it's uncomfortable to watch Ariana defend Tom as he stands there & smirks and postures.

r383 wrong - Lala has no story, James has no story and no story on the horizon. The problem with the show is it is moving away from Vanderpump and Sur, despite the Scandoval reigniting this season. The focus next season will be on Katie and Ariana and their SAM shop, With the closing of PUMP there will be a crop of new SUR people brought in. Both Tom's could be at risk as well, most likely Sandoval and Racehl will not be back as no one wants to film with them. They may be on the beginning of the new season but will probably be dropped in favor of Jax and Britney. The next season will be Katie and her search for love, Arianna and her new boyfriend who will become a cast member. Conflict with Schena over jealousy of how close Arianna and Katie become. Schena and Britney will get closer as they both are moms now with Jax and Brock bro ing out and then any new SUR people thrown in the mix, plus Granny Vanderpump.

I kind of wondered that too; they're not married, but surely she put $$ into the house. I suppose she could force either the sale of the home or for Tom to buy her out, which he surely cannot due.

Schaena beat the crap out of Rachel, Katie can speak to the Tom’s sick relationship…

Lala gave Raquel her only win this season when Raquel left Katie and Lala speechless at that Lake Havasu dinner. Other than that fight, the only thing Lala has done this season is bray about leaving the bed sheets wet in their vacation rental.

[quote] Andy Cohen Says Tom Sandoval Was a ‘Shell of Himself’ During ‘Vanderpump Rules’ Season 10 Reunion: ‘He Was Shaking and Thin’

In the hot seat. Andy Cohen dropped some major hints about Tom Sandoval's state of mind during the season 10 reunion of Vanderpump Rules.

"I can tell you that Tom Sandoval was really a shell of himself at the reunion. He was shaking and he was thin," the Bravo executive producer, 54, teased during the Wednesday, May 10, episode of The View.

Cohen also confirmed that Ariana Madix will return to Watch What Happens Live With Andy Cohen on May 17 to address her ex-boyfriend's cheating scandal. The former couple made headlines in March when news broke that Sandoval, 40, and Madix, 37, called it quits after nearly a decade of dating due to his affair with Raquel Leviss.

The model, 28, for her part, issued a public apology to Madix amid the drama. "I want to apologize for my actions and my choices foremost to Ariana, and to my friends and the fans so invested in our relationships. There is no excuse, I am not a victim and I must own my actions and I deeply regret hurting Ariana," she wrote via Instagram that same month.

Meanwhile, Sandoval received backlash for initially only requesting that fans not post negative reviews about his Los Angeles businesses. The Missouri native ultimately apologized to his ex on social media — but has since defended his choices by claiming he tried to end his relationship with Madix in the past.

"We didn't tell anybody, but she knew," he alleged on an episode of the "Howie Mandel Does Stuff" podcast in April. "She was trying to, like convince me not to be broken up ... but that was not the case. She asked me that day as we were leaving about, like — because we had talked about fertilizing [her] eggs, which I never did. She was like, 'So, what do you think about doing a sperm check to fertilize my eggs?' And I'm like, 'What? We're broken up.' ... I was like, 'We'll talk about this later, I gotta go do my show.'"

According to Tom, the former SUR bartender was "fully in denial" about their breakup. "It scared me. It really scared me," he said after claiming he and the Florida native parted ways on Valentine's Day. "That's why, like you say, 'Why didn't you just break up with her then?' It's because of the threat of ... self-sabotaging. And you know how f--king — how much that hurts me?"

The Tom Sandoval & ​The Most Extras frontman also broke down the personal issues that made him want to change his life. "As I turned 40, I started to look at my life and it looked very bleak," he detailed. "I started to lose my optimism in life and my drive. I started to feel trapped. I started thinking like, 'I don't need this house, I don't need this s–t, but I feel like I need to make a change to feel motivated, to feel optimistic again.'"

Sandoval and Leviss reunited with Madix on screen to address the scandal while filming the season 10 reunion in late March. After the taping, Cohen teased what went down between the cast members.

“I did separate one-on-ones with Tom, Ariana and Raquel so that I could get all of their stories just in conversation with me,” he said on his SiriusXM’s Radio Andy in April, noting that he re-asked “a lot of the stuff in front of the group” too. “I also had things — I had my own concerns. I had my own things that I wanted to confront them about. Things I had noticed so I got to do that. So that's how we started and then we brought them to the filming group.”

Lala Kent, however, shocked fans when she revealed that things nearly got physical, saying on Amazon Live late last month, "I'm not gonna say who it was. I will say Andy got involved. He could hardly control it, so security got involved. I won't say who was trying to brawl or whatever, but it was very heated the entire day."

I wonder how filming will work next season. The only ones that will readily film with Sandoval and Raquel are probably Tom Schwartz and Lisa.

Those three have to try to repair their image and the best way to do that is to spend the next two seasons trying to get the audience to forget Scandoval.

Maybe James and his girlfriend will film with the Toms, but he hates Raquel. I can’t see Lala and Katie talking to those three, and there is no upside for Ariana to forgive them at this point.

Because of the restraining order drama, I doubt Scheana will film with them, and she is the woman who would hang out with Hitler if he was a VPR cast member and call him “my best friend.” That said, since Scheana was apparently thisclose to being demoted thus season, and had nothing going on but the restraining order, maybe she will be forced to be Raquel’s” friend.”

Maybe they will bring Charli back as a full time cast member for Raquel? And with all of these opportunities being thrown at Ariana, will she want to stay around or quit and capitalize on the public’s goodwill?

This is the best thing to happen to this show, it was probably going to get canceled after this season since there really wasn’t much happening, and it barely got renewed for this season..

Also, this season has been a vindication for Katie. I am curious to see what she is like without being dragged down by The Toms. I think she’s been so cunty for years because she was married to Schwartz, who is a truly rotten person , but has managed to make himself for years look like the victim of a nasty bitch wife.

I predict next season features the Rise of the Random Sandwich Shop, with Lisa sprinkling her pink fairy dust on the girls instead of those unworthy boys and because the Toms have no shame, their downfall, financial troubles, WeHo shunning, all while hanging around with their one remaining friend, Billie Lee, will be featured. I also predict Jax & Porkchop make some kind of return as "friends of" because they're reliable shit stirrers. As for Raquel, she never really had anything going for her anyway. I'm embarrassed to admit I watched a VR marathon this weekend & she's just a big nothing who attaches herself onto someone like a barnacle. Contrast that with Scheana, who is a certifiable idiot, yet somehow manages to be entertaining with how clueless & tone deaf she is. Aside from just being hated by the Bravo Watchers as a certifiable Mean Girl, Raquel has no such charms or entertainment value.

Whatever you think of VPR, that finale was sensational. No way the Toms come back from this. Loved when Katie-told Schwartz to man up tell the truth and stop being Sandoval’s bitch. Q. Was Raquel deprived of oxygen at birth, she seems almost brain damaged/special needs dim.

I’m watching season 6 concurrently- ten years gone by have been rough on the appearance of some of them. Schwartz looks like a bloated alcoholic dad working in a sad office job now. Any charm he had is long gone.

So, it seems Ariana lost interest in sex with Tom, but is getting it in with her new man per WWHL. I still believe she prefers women though (sexually, not emotionally). Just "something about her".

by Anonymousreply 442May 18, 2023 3:20 PM

As stupid as this show is and as grotesque as these people are, that finale was definitely emotional. I think the most authentic moment of the episode was with Scheana with Sandoval. She seemed genuinely crushed, and it was sad to hear her say she could no longer be friends with him and would miss him.

I wasn't buying any of Sandoval's crying jags, though, especially not when he pretended to go into a full blown breakdown at Lisa's. It's all so disingenuous with him. And Schwartz was a tool bag, too, going on and on about all of this was affecting HIM. Ugh.

At least Katie had the maturity to tell Scheana none of their animosity mattered anymore when she came over to comfort Ariana.

Ariana looked great on WWHL, and she showed surprising composure and an intelligent perspective on the whole mess. What I don't understand, though, is why she's still living in that house with Sandoval. That can't be healthy emotionally. Is she just staying there to boost her legal argument for getting half the house when they put it up for sale?

By the way, Brock looks much better with his new, shorter hair. He's still not hot, but an improvement.

by Anonymousreply 443May 18, 2023 4:06 PM

Regarding living in the house-I don’t think she has much of a choice r443. Sandoval pulled $250k out of it to finance that new club. Their mortgage must be huge. And they have several pets.

Also if I were here I wouldn’t trust Sandoval alone in there. There’s a darkness about him this season that is deeper than the affair, like he’s deep into drug addiction.

R444 Speaking of, did anyone catch when Ariana was talking to Schwartz and she said she had tried to get Sandoval to quit drinking for just five days? She practically admitted on camera Sandoval is an alcoholic. And yes, I do think there are drugs involved, too.

[quote] Ariana Madix ‘Living in a Nightmare’ in Shared Home With Tom Sandoval

Disengaging, but still living together. Due to financial logistics, Tom Sandoval and Ariana Madix are still living together under the same roof. It’s a challenging situation for Ariana. She has already survived a very public and humiliating break-up thanks to the disregard Sandoval and Raquel Leviss had for anything but their lust for each other.

Ariana has all the public support behind her, and her life is settling after the huge reshuffle. She is dating NYC based personal trainer Daniel Wai. Professionally, the Something About Her co-owner was also cast in a Lifetime movie.

Yet, there remains the issue of Ariana and Sandoval’s $2 million home in Valley Village. They purchased the luxury home in 2019, during happier times. Now it’s hanging like a dead-weight, twining the former couple together.

An insider exclusively told Life & Style that Sandoval and Ariana are no longer sharing a bedroom. But having to cohabit with her ex-boyfriend is no less of a “nightmare” for Ariana.

“Tom and Ariana bought the $2 million in 2019 when everything was going well in their relationship, and now it’s all gone to hell,” the insider said on May 8. “Even though they avoided each other, being under the same roof was like living in a nightmare.”

It was previously revealed that Sandoval and Ariana were communicating through a mediator. That individual helped them, literally, navigate around each other in the home, sharing their comings and goings.

But it’s not just about avoiding Sandoval. Ariana is troubled by the fact that Sandoval and Raquel hooked up in her home. On one occasion, the former beauty pageant contestant slept over, or “dipped out,” when Ariana was out of state for her grandmother’s funeral.

“Ariana hates the thought of Tom and Raquel hooking up in various rooms. The house had great memories, she loved living there, but he and Raquel ruined that for her,” the insider added.

And that’s the issue. The inescapable ghost of mistresses past.

I picture some baby like Baby Pubert on the Addams Family, only with painted nails & a face that doesn't move.

In retrospect, I think Rachel is intellectually dim, but very shrewd & conniving. Given the way she acts now, her sweet little lamb act when she was like James was a way to position herself as the "Sympathetic Girlfriend" next to James, the drunk, high emotionally volatile rage monster. Now that she doesn't need him anymore, she can drop that act & being someone who genuinely seems mean & conniving.

Not to say that she couldn't have just gained weight, but given her demeanor, I wonder if Kristin is now on anti-depressants, which given her past behavior would not be a bad thing.

The show’s Executive Producer is saying they delaying offering contracts and beginning filming (they usually start in June) because new information comes out at the reunion that may make some of them think twice about coming back.

I would imagine whatever that is, it wasn’t discussed when the entire cast was together-Andy did separate sitdowns with Rachel, Ariana and Sandoval.

What could it be? Rachel and Sandoval are in a throuple with Schwartz? Rachel/Ariana/Tom had a threeway at first and Rachel and Tom continued fucking without Ariana knowing? Lisa knew from the beginning? Rachel is pregnant?

And why am I invested in this crap?

Arianna laughed and said "no it's a femaile." The consensus is he fucked trans former cast member Billie Lee, but funny that Andy would ask if it was a guy.

I'm watching the finale as I type, and I have to start by saying that I love this version of Kristen.

She's heavier, more natural, and a hell of a lot nicer than she used to be.

It's interesting to me that nobody is listening to Tom Sandoval.

He is saying that his life was at a crossroads, he was lacking intimacy in his relationship, there was no love anymore, and he wanted out.

Ariana wouldn't let him out, and all of her friends are just automatically siding with her.

That's ridiculous to me.

Isn't a guy allowed to express his emotions, and feel his feelings, without them automatically being dismissed?

Yes, he cheated. But only after the relationship soured. They were basically friends living together anyway, so what's the big deal?

I'm highly suspicious of Ariana, and why she never acknowledged what he was saying. She completely ignored him and glossed over his feelings, which were very valid.

And the females coming together, acting like someone died? Bitch, the relationship died a long time ago. Both Tom and Ariana knew it, but she just wouldn't admit it.

Then watching Katie and Schwartz talk, and it's the exact same thing. Katie walking all over Schwartz, and calling him stupid, and a liar.

I don't get guys like Schwartz and Sandoval. Their women treat them like pussies, because they act like pussies.

If Tom had just nutted up and ended the relationship when he wanted to, this never would have happened.

I think the funniest thing was when Tom told Ariana that she wouldn't let him end the relationship. I swear, it was straight out of an episode of Seinfeld.

I love how Andy asked her if Sandoval's parents reached out to her after the news broke, and she said, "No. And I've known them for nine years."

Why should they call her? So she can scream at them? So she can make them feel guilty.

She has made it clear that she doesn't want anything to do with people who are close to, or are friends with Sandoval. She's making everyone pick a side.

Oh, except for Lisa. Because she knows she can't issue that ultimatum to Lisa or she'd get shut the fuck down.

^that whole "I'm going to kill myself" thing kind of startled me too, but I guess they're less conventional couple & more of a "brand." And Sandoval really did think he was going to end the "brand" with Ariana & create a different brand starring Raquel (and that's clearly what she thought too), so that's probably what prompted that OTT response. If Ariana is no longer an OG on VPR, what does she else does she have? Maybe that's what producers are planning for next season: Ariana goes all Betty Broderick on Sandoval & Raquel - that might be kind of entertaining

R443, Scheana was the one to offer the olive branch to Katie, not the other way around.

For some strange reason, I like Scheana and Brock this season. She seems like the only person who actually GREW UP on this show and acts like an adult. The others act like they always have which is sad because, as noted upthread, they are all up there in age. In the Glamping episode, Scheana asked Rachel what it felt like to be the only person there who was still in their 20s.

Ariana and Sandoval are both drama queens. Him slobbering while talking to Ariana and Ariana's breakdown at SUR or PUMP after the Something About Her sandwich preview thingy.

OT, but what the hell kind of name is Something About Her for a sandwich shop??? It sounds like the name for a lesbian/drag queen bar!

Katie has become a shrill harpy. I used to like her but she's gone a little overboard lately. She filed for divorce, was making out with Satchel (don't get me started) and having sex with other guys but Schwartz is her HUSBAND! HUSBAND! HUSBAND!

by Anonymousreply 475May 20, 2023 2:29 AM

Sandoval answered all your questions, R475.

But like a typical female, you're just not listening to him.

He felt like there was no passion or purpose in the relationship. He was feeling like they were just friends, for the past four or five years. But he was torn between his love for her, but that there was no passion for her. At the same time. Both can be true, you know?

Then he said he was having an existential crisis. He was feeling like his life was at a dead end. And several times, he said "Is this all my life is going to be?" Meaning, an unhappy relationship and drowning in debt, and he's completely miserable.

Why is it that men have to recognize women having their periods, or cramps, or going through menopause, but people just ignore when men go through a mid-life crisis, which is just as bad physically and emotionally? Yet no one takes it seriously.

He was basically crying out for help, but Ariana's response was either ignoring him, fighting with him, or threatening to kill herself. Those were his options.

So many people have comprehension problems because they fail to listen to what other people are saying. Especially when they feel that that person is a "BAD" person. Even worse, when it's a MAN.

Tom was wrong for cheating, and wrong for cheating with Ariana's friend.

But he was trying to make people understand why he did it, and what he was feeling at the time, and no one gives a shit.

That's just not fair to men.

If you don’t want to be with your partner, you leave. Instead he dug in deeper, buying a house with her, using the equity in the house to pay for his restaurant, attempting IVF, etc.

I’ve been rewatching the show over the past month. He’s been complaining about their lack of a sex life for 5-6 seasons.

This is not to say she isn’t complicit; there clearly was a problem that she was ignoring, because they were the “stable couple” on the show.

If you’re in a relationship, you’re both under 40, childless, attractive. have the means to travel, and you STILL AREN’T HAVING SEX-there is a problem. They were also not on the same page about children -so why dig in deeper, they were in their thirties when you have to make a decision about having children?

She has been defending him for years when infidelity rumors popped up, and she spent this season doing it again while also defending her “friend” Raquel while those two were fucking. Raquel and Sandoval clearly had a game plan here to quietly end the Ariana/Tom relationship after the season ended, while slowly lurching towards a soft launch of the Raquel/Tom relationship.

They humiliated her on television. It is fucked up.

I just took a stroll through Raquel’s instagram. It is interesting.

First, she hasn’t pulled any photos of Ariana or Scheana down. Second, she was hanging out a lot with the two of them, who seemed to think of her as a kid sister, not the succubus she is.

Except for group photos I the only photo I saw of Raquel with Tom is in the link. This photo has been used in a lot of stories about the affair. But it was posted in April, 2022, five months before the affair supposedly started.

I think they’ve been screwing around for well over a year-remember when Tom gave James $25k to pay for the proposal?

Before this happened, this was definitely going to be the final season. Lisa is spending a lot of time in Vegas, and Garcelle’s son works there and was on the show this season. Was she trying to queue up another spinoff set in Vegas?

I know Tom keeps SAYING 'Arianna was threatening to kill herself ', and it's not playing. She's been one of the more egotistical, selfish, vain people on this show. People who are egotistical (her and Tom had that as a primary thing in common, along with being the 'best' couple on the show), do NOT self harm. The idea that she'd even make that threat isn't very plausible. There's also no talk of her wanting to end her life if she lost Tom, no friends talking about their concern for her and depression, nothing on the show to back that claim up, and this woman went into depth over how depressed she was over losing her dog.

I do think she thought she could fight to make it work, not knowing Tom checked out so completely. (Again, that lack of awareness of others needs, is an indicator of an over inflated sense of self importance. )

Tom, on the other hand, really seems to be fading fast, delicate flower that he is. It's also possible to have a midlife crisis without woodchipping your pre existing relationships, but that requires ending one before starting the next.

I can't say I like or dislike anyone mentioned above as I don't know them, but watching Tom's attempts at evoking sympathy was some of the best/worst acting I've seen in quite some time.

Agreed; I don't know how Lisa (no great thespian either, but quite the con artist) kept a straight face during that weeping scene at her home. "Dude, like I kept having this vibe that she didn't want to know what I was going to tell her" - (P.S. Tom, she doesn't want you to blow up her livelihood & replace her with the mentally challenged Fembot).

Tom's crying and Ariana's delivery of the line, 'I regret ever loving you!" was so 1980's soap opera, I burst out laughing!

^I read this Variety article interviewing the VP and they describe Raquel as "childlike" (=moron). I also didn't realize that she became James's girlfriend as a "fan." I think her aggressiveness towards the other women, getting a restraining order on Scheana to try & keep her off the reunion and add to that what Tom no doubt told her about his lack of sex life with Ariana probably lead her to believe that she could take Ariana's place and be the new Stassi/HBIC.

The producers also indicated that the last shoe hasn't dropped and there's more out there, kind of leading me to believe that rumors about R's pregnancy are true. Plus, know you Lisa is lobbying to keep the Toms on the show so TomTom doesn't sink into oblivion along with them.

They all are throwing stones in glass houses - as Andy said - Ariana included (the same way you get him is the same way you lose him is very true). Lala and James are just the most obnoxious about it. The only innocent ones are Lisa and Katie (and I wonder about Katie - She just kept her infidelity out of the friend group)

R507, with Ariana, I have a feeling that she didn't know the extent of Kristin and Sandoval's relationship which is why she kissed him. Sandoval has a history of telling people he's "about to break up" with someone while screwing/dating someone else. He intentionally misleads others.

by Anonymousreply 508May 26, 2023 4:17 PM

After the first reunion episode, I am now Team Tom. Everyone went in just a little too hard, you know what i mean?

And I know I am in the minority on this, but Ariana seems to be enjoying this a little bit too much. When she found out about the affair, the first thing she did was call production so that they could get the aftermath on tape?

I mean, she is a woman scorned. Okay, fine. Lean into that. Show me your best Angela Bassett. Set that whole damn car on fire, girl. Burn it down. But if you are also the one pulling the strings and stage managing the whole thing, it is sort of hard to feel fully sympathetic towards your point of view.

Three things I noticed on the reunion. And by the way watching it uncensored on Peacock is much better (Andy Cohen and Ariana are incapable at times of making a statement without the word fuck in it).

1.) The female cast members and James seem fed up with LVP. Lala talked back to her and told her she rejected her opinion (when Lala claimed Sandoval is a dangerous predator like Randall Emmett). Ariana rattled LVP when she proclaimed that she will not associate with anyone associating with Sandoval; at first she made no exception for LVP until LVP reasoned with her, then she made a grudging exception for her. James made fun of LVP when she used her Mary Poppins voice and tried to get him to shut up and let Samdoval speak. Even Katie (who adores LVP) seemed exasperated with her when LVP compared her 40 + year union to the Maloney/Schwartz disaster. She doesn’t really fit in here anymore, she shows up for 5 minutes to sprinkle fairy dust and miniature pony shit on them and then glides away in a Bentley.

2.) Andy Cohen wants to strangle James Kennedy. When he got in his face and told him to shut the fuck up or get off the stage, it was quite a departure from his Watch What Happens persona.

3.) Ariana is thisclose to blowing it with her attitude during the reunion. A couple she comes off as smug and power mad-she needs to dial it back a wee bit or people will see him as a victim.

Agreed; I think she could also show some humility by apologizing to the people (like Katie and at times Lala) who had genuine issues with Sandoval that she shut down because she was "ride or die." Sandoval managed to escape criticism for as long as he did not only because Jax was such a gross pig, but because she continually defended him & people generally liked & respected her. Yes, he hurt her, but she played a part in him hurting other people & she should have the generosity to say that since, let's face it, the "wronged woman" role only lasts for so long.

I don't think Sandoval set out to consciously hurt Ariana by having an affair with her best friend. Sandoval and Rachel are both adults. They knew it was wrong and should have stopped at the one time. I think Sandoval wanted out of the relationship with Ariana and would have done it anyway. It was just unfortunate that it happened during filming. I don't see Sandoval and Rachel being a full-on couple in the future. He wanted out and Rachel and nothing else going on so they fucked.

What do we think this revelation of Raquel’s next week is going to be? The producers are hyping it and claiming it could make castmembers not want to return next season.

These are some of the theories on the internet:

1.) Raquel is pregnant. 2.) Raquel fucked Brock too. 3.) Ariana/Tom/Raquel had a threeway (or Scheana/Brock/Raquel had a threeway). 4.) They actually have been fucking for a long time-at least since last season. 5.) The producers, including LVP and Andy, have known all along and said nothing.

R528, when Sandoval and Rachel were in the trailer, during the break on Part 1, she said that she thinks the pendulum swung too far this time. She went from being demure-appearing to an outright home-wrecking whore in one season. She doesn't love Tom. It was a relationship of convenience. They don't even look like a couple in love!

It was also very telling that, when Rachel apologized to LaLa for calling her a mistress, Rachel said "We believe what they tell us." Now, she's finding out that Ariana and Sandoval were having sex up until the news broke. Sandoval obviously forgot to share that tiny, little detail.

[quote] Kristen Doute Predicts ‘Dark Truth’ Will Come Out About James Kennedy

We can all agree that James Kennedy came out as Vanderpump Pump’s “number one guy in the group” simply by proxy of Tom Sandoval’s ruthless affair with Raquel Leviss. Tom Schwartz fell out of favor as well due to his inaction on the matter, though he knew that his bestie was cheating on Ariana Madix for months. Jax Taylor has been off the show since 2020. So, it’s more like James was the last man standing.

Surely, all of James past behavior can’t be swept under the rug. That raging intensity complemented by slick one-liners has only been diluted in recent seasons. Also, his angelic new girlfriend Ally Lewber has given him a fresh start. But if Jax is looking good in comparison to Sandoval, James certainly can as well.

But James’ ex-girlfriend, and VPR alum favorite Kristen Doute doesn’t think he’s out of the woods yet. Nor can he suppress his poor behavior forever. Ally, take note.

Kristen went so far as to call James’ current status as a “good guy” act during an appearance on the May 29 episode of the Good Guys podcast.

“I am close with everybody that is an OG cast member,” Kristen said of her VPR connections. “So that does not include James Kennedy. And I mean, currently, I am obviously not friends with Tom Sandoval. That is a hard no.”

Kristen explained the perspective that has given rise to the lauded James Kennedy of Season 10. She continued, “It’s not gonna last long. He can ride the wave this season, because why is he the number one guy in the group? Because he’s the only one not screwing up this particular season? Wow, congratulations you’re a grown man and you have one good summer of not messing up as badly as everybody else. The truth always comes out … no matter how long it takes.”

As much as Kristen’s response elicits a chuckle, she did hint that the skeletons in James’ closest are, “a little dark.”

They should have postponed taping the reunion. It was taped only a few weeks after this came out, so the emotions were extremely high.

At least they could have waited two weeks for Raquel’s restraining order to be dropped.

The shrillness of Lala and James is making Raquel seem like a victim of bullying. I understand Ariana’s anger and it is definitely justified: the other two were just shrieking to keep the heat off them.

Unfortunately that behavior also kept the heat off Schwartz, who deserved to be put on the barbecue for keeping the heat off Sandoval, allowing himself to be a shield for Tom and Rachel, and treating Katie like absolute shit.

Apparently, in the penultimate episode at the Sur party Sandoval was being quite nasty to Katie’s mom, telling her to shut up. Katie’s brother was there and almost got into a physical fight with Sandoval. I hope that is in secrets revealed.”

Ariana and Raquel both have low self-esteem (had, in Ariana’s case); that made them both the perfect woman for narcissist Sandoval.

Even listen to Rachel confess to some pretty bad things, it was clear that there is no "there there." She's got nothing going on behind the eyes. She's not just clueless & dim, she's soulless. She held her own pretty well during the reunion to some hateful barrage, but you got the sense that she didn't even care - she was there to demonstrate some contrition & apologize because someone told her to do it. If they told her to continue to argue & go after Kate for no apparent reason, she would've done that too. She's got no agency of her own. In the short term, she's good TV because no one expected any of this out of someone so otherwise dim & self-involved. But you can't play that trick twice - no one will trust her or even include her again because who knows what agenda she's following now? She's not a bad person for fucking around - she's a creepy person for being so indifferent to the feelings of people who cared for & befriended her.

[quote] Jax Taylor Slams Tom Sandoval for Messaging Brittany Cartwright: ‘Don’t Ever Text My F–king Wife’

Not appropriate? Jax Taylor has alleged that his former Vanderpump Rules costar Tom Sandoval privately messaged his wife, Brittany Cartwright.

“His [Tom Sandoval & the Most Extras] band was performing in Louisville. He texted Brittany [and said], ‘Hey, if you have any friends in Louisville, [I would] love to see you. Come [see] my band. I’ll get you free passes,’” Taylor, 43, said during a Friday, June 9, appearance on “The Toast” podcast. “I looked at the phone. I go, ‘Are you f–king serious?’”

Taylor — who married Cartwright, 34, in 2019 — alleged that Sandoval, 40, had sent the messages “two days” before he joined Claudia Oshry on her podcast. “This is how tone-deaf and selfish he is,” he added.

The former SUR bartender quickly handed Cartwright back her smartphone at the time and sent the TomTom founder a message from his own device.

“I went on my phone, and I go, ‘Don’t you ever f–king text my wife again. How dare you. How selfish and tone-deaf are you? You do realize Brittany is friends with all these girls?’ What do you think she’s going to do? [Respond] 'Sure, Tom. Let me right now call them up. They’ll be right there?’” Taylor recalled to Oshry, 28. “It’s like a serial killer who kills their family and then goes out to the bar.”

Sandoval — who has not publicly addressed his alleged conversation with the Kentucky native — caught flak from many of his current and former fellow SURvers after his cheating scandal, including the Jax and Brittany Take Kentucky alums. (Us Weekly confirmed in March that the Schwartz & Sandy’s restauranteur and longtime partner Ariana Madix had split after nine years together after Sandoval was involved in a months-long secret affair with costar Raquel Leviss.)

Taylor previously revealed during a March appearance on Watch What Happens Live With Andy Cohen that he “called it from day one” that Sandoval would end up cheating on the Something About Her owner, 37.

“I was there the first week during the Miami vacation. I was there the week [Tom and Ariana] started dating,” he claimed at the time, referring to the season 3 storyline where Sandoval was accused of cheating on Madix during the Floridian excursion. “I said it many times, but no one wanted to believe me.. … It 100% happened. I was in the room next to them.”

Taylor — who left Pump Rules in 2020 amid Cartwright’s pregnancy with son Cruz, now 2 — added on Friday that he has known the Missouri native since they were 19 years old but was still shocked that the affair, which started in August 2022 at Scheana Shay and Brock Davies’ wedding, occurred with Leviss, 28.

“I was kind of, like, ‘OK,’ I thought it was a couple other people and I still believe in my head it’s been a couple other people,” the Michigan native alleged. “I [wasn’t] shocked. Nothing on this show shocks me because I’ve called everything on the show that’s happened.”

Sandoval and Leviss — who is currently undergoing treatment at a mental health facility — have since paused their relationship, with a source telling Us last month that they never put a “label on the status of things.”

Awwww, Tom and Tom break up.....

Tom Schwartz is moving forward on his own amid the fallout from #Scandoval.

On Monday’s episode of Stars on Mars, the 40-year-old Vanderpump Rules star revealed he is stepping back from his friendship with business partner Tom Sandoval after his “incredibly messed up” affair with Raquel Leviss.

"It seems each time I try to weigh in or talk about, ramble on about it, drivel on, I inevitably sound like I'm somehow justifying it or making excuses for it, and I'm not," Schwartz shared. "There's just no excuse for it."

"Any sort of version of his side of the story has become obsolete because of the way he handled it. Ultimately, that's his life. That is his life,” he added. “I did not have an affair. I am not him. It's just so strange that I've been absolutely mired in this. It's taken on almost a life of its own."

Schwartz concluded that he is now “stepping away from it permanently."

During the episode, the reality star also opened up to his costar Natasha Leggero about the “torrid affair” between Sandoval and Leviss, adding, “It’s horrible and I feel complicit.”

After Sandoval’s ex Ariana Madix recently said Schwartz “actively participated in my downfall” by hiding the affair, he shared his own side of the story.

"I didn't cover for him, but I had his back,” he explained. “He came to me, confided in me that he was in love with someone else.”

"My friend had an affair that just happened to swipe the nation and it’s incredibly messed up but the thing is I've become mired in it," he added. "That's been a huge source of just angst in my life. I've been in this extended funk."

On PodcastOne’s When Reality Hits with Jax and Brittany last week, the TomTom bar co-owner revealed that he was “taking a break” from Sandoval.

“He made a big mess. And then you know, he left it for us to clean up back at the businesses,” he told hosts Jax Taylor and Brittany Cartwright. “And it's hard for me not to be resentful of him.”

The television personality added that he feels Sandoval “exploited me because, you know, I do love Tom and I took to heart everything he told me” about Madix, who he said “vehemently” denied her ex’s version of their split.

Schwartz added that his friend needs to “lose the ego,” adding, “he needs a change of heart, humility and to say ‘I’m sorry’ — not ‘I’m sorry, but...” (Both Sandoval and Leviss issued public apologies to Madix on Instagram back in March when news of the affair broke.)

Last month, Madix, 37, called out Schwartz during an appearance on Watch What Happens Live with Andy Cohen when host Andy Cohen asked if Madix thought Schwartz was "covering" for her then-boyfriend's affair with Leviss.

"I don't think it was covering," Madix replied. "I think it was actively participating in my downfall."

[quote] ‘Vanderpump Rules’ Becomes Ratings Juggernaut; Most Watched Cable Series In 18-49 Demo

It probably wasn’t much fun for Ariana Madix to face that cheating scoundrel Tom Sandoval but season 10 of Vanderpump Rules sure was a ratings boon for Bravo and Peacock.

More than 115 million hours of season 10 have been watched to date across both platforms as well as on small digital apps. Season 10 reached over 11.4 million total viewers. The reality show that focuses on Lisa Vanderpump and her restaurant staffs fired on all cylinders this season after news broke that Sandoval had been maintaining a secret affair with costar Raquel Leviss behind Madix’s back.

Those May and June reunion specials rocked, too: all three reached 6.5 million viewers across all platforms through 3 days. The 4.6 million total viewers across all platforms through 3 days make the first reunion special (May 24) the most-watched Bravo episode of any series in over nine years and the most watched Vanderpump Rules episode of all time.

Vanderpump Rules is the most-watched cable series in 2023 in the 18-49 demo in L+3, and the fastest-growing unscripted series over the past year on broadcast or cable in the 18-49 demo in L+3.

One other stat: Vanderpump Rules: Pumped Up Edition (Reunion Part 3) had the best first-day Peacock viewing ever for any NBCU entertainment series on the platform.
