Ariana Madix Talks Moving On From 9-year Relationship With Ex Tom Sandoval

Ariana Madix Talks Moving On From 9-year Relationship With Ex Tom SandovalIf you’re thinking Ariana Madix was pulled down by Tom Sandoval‘s affair which led to the ruin of their 9-year relationship, think again! Yes, 9 years is a long time to devote to someone and then watch it end, but it taught Ariana Madix to spread her wings. And now she feels like “superwoman.”

Ariana Madix Says Moving On From Sandoval Made Her Feel She Could Do Anything

It’s been just over a year since the whole Tom Sandoval affair with “Vanderpump Rules” co-star Rachel “Raquel” Leviss blew up.

At the time, Ariana Madix swiftly walked away after discovering his months-long affair, and she’s not looking back.

During the Los Angeles Times Festival of Books on April 21, where she promoted her new book “Single AF Cocktails: Drinks for Bad B*tches,” she briefly touched on her life after Sandoval.

She said: “That was one thing that I think even initially I was like, well, I felt like Superwoman. I felt like I could do anything because all of that, I thought I would never be able to handle something like that, and then I did, and I feel like that’s something that a lot of us, when we go through hard things, we realize like, ‘Oh, I could do that,'”

“That means I could do other things too. I also think that not just as a woman, but also as a Cancer, I feel like a lot of times I don’t trust my intuition and I’ve learned so many lessons,” Madix added.

“It’s like the universe does not let you not learn the lesson that you need to learn, and it keeps shoving it in your face, and trusting my intuition is one that it will never … I got to learn it. I got to learn that lesson because otherwise, I’m just going to keep getting it shoved down my throat,” the reality TV star continued.

Ariana Madix Says She Doesn’t Want To Be “Pigeonholed” As Someone’s Girlfriend

In case you don’t know, Madix and Sandoval co-wrote “Fancy AF Cocktails” together in 2019, and now that she’s going on the publishing route solo, we’ve heard that a “certain someone” isn’t happy about it.

“I think that over many, many years, not just from that person but from just outside voices in general, I definitely got it in my head because I wasn’t able to do that book by myself,” she said.

“But once that happened and just other things kind of being pigeonholed as just the girlfriend of someone, even though I have such ambition and I had drive, at one point, I felt like I needed to prove to myself that I could do things on my own, and I think I proved that to myself and I think that was really important for me to do,” Madix added, before revealing that she got the chance to do the book almost immediately after the split.

You go girl.
