More “Scandoval” Drama: Tom Sandoval Took Raquel Leviss To His Hometown To Meet His Friends And Family Before Their Affair Was Exposed
While Vanderpump Rules’ Ariana Madix’s career is blowing up in the wake of “Scandoval” with her getting cast in a Lifetime movie, joining Dancing with the Stars, and getting all the free Béis luggage her heart desires (listen, a Lifetime movie and DWTS are big career moves for a Vanderpump Rules person), her cheating ex Tom Sandoval keeps digging himself a deeper douche hole. The newest revelation comes from TMZ, and they report that right before Tom’s affair with co-star Raquel Leviss was exposed, he took her to his hometown of St. Louis with the intention of introducing his side piece to his friends and family. Awww! What a genius move, and Tom Sandoval continued to make genius moves by going on Howie Mandel’s podcast Howie Mandel Does Stuff to further talk about this mess. For a germaphobe, it’s weird that Howie had a germ puddle like Tom on his show.
Raquel Leviss’ Restraining Order Against Scheana Shay Has Been Dismissed
Vanderpump Rules fans have seen their fair share of bitch slaps, sucker punches, and hand-shaped red marks over the years to know assault is totally within the realm of possibility between this show’s cast members, but we’ll never really know if Scheana Shay gave her castmate Raquel Leviss a black eye because the temporary restraining order that Raquel got against Scheana has been officially dismissed after Raquel was a no-show at court. Either way, Raquel’s word basically means nothing to anyone after sneaking around in her months-long affair with Tom Sandoval behind Ariana Madix’s back.
Raquel Leviss Of “Vanderpump Rules” Chatted About Scandoval With TMZ Outside Of A Nail Salon
Vanderpump Rules’ Raquel Leviss has been literally and figuratively punched in the face (allegedly) in the fallout from her and Tom Sandoval’s illicit months-long liaison behind the back of Tom’s long-time girlfriend/Raquel’s good friend, Ariana Madix. Though Raquel issued a totally PR-crafted apology on her Instagram a few weeks ago where she declared she’s not a victim, apologized, and then listed all of the ways she’s a victim, she just publicly spoke out about the scandal sweeping the nation yesterday with a TMZ staffer while sitting outside of a nail salon–all the while sporting an inappropriate grin.
Ariana Madix Tells Tom Sandoval To Die In The Mid-Season Trailer For “Vanderpump Rules”
About a minute ago, Vanderpump Rules castmate Ariana Madix (cue dramatic music) BROKE HER SILENCE in the “Scandoval” drama, where her boyfriend of 9 years, Tom Sandoval, was caught cheating on her with their co-star Raquel Leviss for months. Well, Bravo is gleefully keeping the drama going by releasing a trailer for the second half of season 10, which is airing right now. This drama has already gotten allegedly violent, with Scheana Shay punching Raquel after finding out about the affair (Scheana denies getting physical). But now this drama is getting into death territory with a scene where Ariana tells Tom she “wants him to die.”
Ariana Madix Speaks Out On The “Scandoval”
Two weeks after the Vanderpump Rules Scandoval affair scorched the Bravo-verse and caused Andy Cohen to prolapse with glee over all the attention, Ariana Madix has finally released a statement to share her side of their story. As those who care know, Ariana dumped her co-star/boyfriend of 9 years, Tom Sandoval, after discovering he was having a months-long affair with fellow VPR castmate Raquel Leviss. Both Tom and Raquel have already dropped standard apologies, and now Ariana is talking. Ariana, who deleted her Instagram Megan Fox-style after the news broke out, reactivated her account to share her side of the story and thank her friends, VPR castmates, and fans for the “outpouring of love and support.”
“Real Housewives Of Beverly Hills” Alum Teddi Mellencamp Thinks Lisa Vanderpump Paid Raquel Leviss To Start An Affair With Tom Sandoval To Boost “Vanderpump Rules” Ratings
Teddi Mellencamp is utterly forgettable, so any time she gets a speck of attention for trying to say something provocative–like defending the neck lift she got that pretty much no one asked her to–people still need to be reminded of why she assumes anyone should care what she has to say. So for good measure: she’s John Mellencamp’s daughter, she used to be on The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills, she’s a fitness accountability coach who hates food and joy, and she was on Celebrity Big Brother only to get booted first. So since she and Lisa Vanderpump both used to be on RHOBH, she’s been dishing room temperature takes about the Vanderpump Rules Scandoval saga on her own podcast. But the other day on Melissa Gorga’s (of The Real Housewives of New Jersey) podcast, Teddi decided to go “All In” and declare that she thinks Lisa paid Raquel Leviss to creep around with Tom Sandoval in an attempt to keep the lights on at VPR. The lesson here? Let’s just stop handing out podcasts to everyone.
