Vanderpump Rules star Ariana Madix is revealing that Tom Sandoval blatantly cheated in her face. The two had been together for nine years. Then it came out that he had been having an affair for seven months with their close friend and co-star. Yet, was he really doing a good job of hiding it? Read on for more details.
Ariana Madix Reveals Sandoval Blatantly Cheated In Her Face
When ‘Scandoval’ broke, it was only a handful of episodes into Season 10 of Vanderpump Rules. Immediately, fans and newcomers to the show started watching the show through new lenses. It became utterly clear that something more was going on between Tom Sandoval and Rachel Leviss. So, how was Ariana Madix completely unaware the whole time? Lala Kent and James Kennedy started to catch on and Leviss was spotted out with Sandoval at The Abbey dancing. She even stayed over when Ariana was in Florida after her grandma passed away so this was too fishy.
Now, according to People, Ariana is opening up about the affair occurring right in front of her. She shares this in her new cocktail book, Single AF Cocktails. Each drink and guide to make it comes with a BTS story from the DWTS finalist’s life. This particular tale comes with the cocktail, Smoke and Mirrors. For the first time, Ariana opens up about how Rachel, formerly Raquel Leviss, had opted to stay at the couple’s home. They still share a house in Valley Village which they purchased in 2019.
Though Leviss was staying over, which she had noted on the show happened a lot, Ariana Madix added another fact. She found Tom Sandoval hanging around the guest room which is presumably where Rachel was sleeping. Ariana firmly now believes that her then-boyfriend and former bestie were being intimate. At the end of the Season 10 reunion, Rachel confessed that the affair was completely active for months. In response to the affair, Ariana said Sandoval was: “honestly really disgusting. I mean, that’s the bottom line — it is really disgusting behavior.”
The affair has only benefitted Ariana Madix though, at the time, she was not eating and struggled to sleep. The Pump Rules star landed a plethora of endorsement deals and a role in a Lifetime movie. Plus, she started dating NYC-based fitness trainer, Daniel Wai. Finally, she was the first person to be announced for Season 32 of DWTS. Daniel has tried to be in the audience nearly every week to cheer her on. Now, she is a finalist and has a book coming out on the same day.
