Find out what Madix said about her ex boyfriend of nine years. And learn why she won’t film with him or Leviss again. Get all the details below.
Vanderpump Rules Spoilers – Ariana Madix Talks ‘Scandoval’!
Tom Sandoval will go down in reality TV history for “Scandoval.” And not in a good way. Vanderpump Rules fans who watch Sandoval cheat on Ariana Madix after 9 years together will forever link Tom with the scandal known as “Scandoval.” And Raquel Leviss, who went from Ariana’s best friend to Tom’s canoodling partner, has become linked with the scandal as well.
But for Ariana Madix, the heartbreak has ended and the comeback has begun. And with both fans and co-stars cheering for the Vanderpump Rules star, she recently revealed her views on returning to the show. However, the 37-year-old refuses to film with either Raquel or Tom after their secret dalliance that lasted for months, noted People.
“I have nothing to say to either of them,” declared Ariana about Sandoval, 40, and Leviss, 28. And she described Vanderpump Rules as a “very real show.” Because it “follows a real group of friends, and neither of them are in the group of friends,” Madix scoffed at future filming with her ex-boyfriend and ex-friend. And she also hinted that her supportive co-stars might ice out Tom and Raquel.

Vanderpump Rules Spoilers – Raquel Leviss To Return?
But Vanderpump Rules exec producer Alex Baskin didn’t make any commitments to the cast for next season. And Baskin explained why he hesitated. Because most of the Vanderpump Rules stars didn’t know about the cheating scandal until months after it began, Baskin wants to give them time. And he also used the reunion airing as a milestone.
“It’s hard for anybody to say yes right now,” he said about the bombshells of the past season. And teasing reunion revelations to come, Baskin also declined to name the Vanderpump Rules cast for next season. But he shared that producers also “need a little space.” However, Baskin wants the cast to view the three-part reunion, which begins airing on May 24, before making a commitment.
And he admitted that he initially thought “we needed cameras on them right away.” But now he thinks that the cast needs some time. He also commented on if Leviss will star again on Vanderpump Rules. “We have had those conversations with her reps. She and people around her have to feel OK about it. And so that’s why I also think that waiting a little bit helps.”
Vanderpump Rules Spoilers – A ‘Weird’ Reunion Day
But Madix recalled the reunion as a “weird day. Because I feel like most of the time in any other reunion, we go through the whole season. But in this reunion, it was really just everybody against one or against two [cast members],” she shared. “We’ve never been united like that ever.”
And Ariana expressed doubts that either Tom or Raquel could get a chance at redemption. She pointed to their “trash interviews victimizing themselves, her TMZ [interview] and his Howie Mandel [interview]” as the reason. “I think had they not done or said all of those horrible things, maybe one day,” she said. “But I think the answer ultimately is no. In our friend group, the answer is no.” And Madix said that she will not forgive Leviss or Sandoval.
