Ariana Madix is going to deliver the drama!
After insisting she’d never film with her ex-boyfriend Tom Sandoval again after he was caught cheating on her with their co-star Raquel Leviss (who is now going by her birth name Rachel), Ariana is officially back to working with Tom!
According to an ET source on Monday, filming for season 11 is already well underway and the Something About Her sandwich shop owner has been holding nothing back when it comes to her ex. The insider spilled the tea:
“Filming is underway for Vanderpump Rules and Tom and Ariana have filmed together. She has been laying into him while filming and doesn’t have time for any of his nonsense. She’s becoming more and more detached and isn’t affected by him as much.”
We’re shocked she agreed to film with the TomTom co-owner! But it’ll be so good for ratings! LOLz!
Thankfully, it sounds like the upcoming Dancing With The Stars contestant is feeling “empowered and confident” as she enters this new phase of her life and is in a good place “personally and professionally,” which is probably why she’s willing to interact with the cover band star now. She knows she has the upper hand! Love it!
The source furthered:
“She’s in a place where she’s focused on herself and happy to be doing her thing. She is still relishing in all the support she has received and feeling good about where she’s at in her life, both personally and professionally.”
TBH, it’s probably a lot harder for the Schwartz and Sandy’s businessman to be around Ariana and his friends than it is for her! The entire Pump Rules cast rallied around the 38-year-old post-Scandoval — and they are still on her side. We can’t say the same about Tom.
Earlier this month, Sandoval, Madix, Tom Schwartz, and Scheana Shay were spotted with some other co-stars filming at Lisa Vanderpump‘s Sur Lounge. (Raquel wasn’t there as she hasn’t nailed down a deal with the network yet.) TMZ caught Shay and Sandoval in a heated argument outside the bar in which Scheana could be heard yelling. “If you hadn’t f**ked Raquel.” So, yeah, he’s still paying for his affair and probably will be for a long time.
Honestly, we’re excited to see Ariana and Tom hash out their split more on-screen. Things were so contentious during the reunion — we wonder if a little time and space will help them have some real conversations about what went wrong?? But knowing Tom, we bet he’ll keep tossing around excuse after excuse to deflect. Sigh. Let us know what you think about them filming together (below)!
