And Ariana teased Vanderpump Rules season 11 for featuring her new boyfriend. However, she added, “Once or twice. But definitely not very much.” And she admitted, “He’s not into the whole world of it all. It was very foreign to him. But I give him props for being a good sport on my behalf.”
Meanwhile, Sandoval feels resentful at his portrayal as the show’s villain. And he complained, “It really hurt to see people sum me up to just one thing, especially people that I had been friends with for well over a decade.” But Tom also defended himself.
For instance, Sandoval sees himself as “always the friend that showed up. I was the one that was there. So, it was hard for people to completely throw all of that out the window and everything I’ve ever done and look at me like I’m some sort of foreign spy who’s been putting on this act for 15 years for this one moment.”
But the Vanderpump Rules star hinted that fans will learn more in season 11. And he shared that much more “to what happened” will emerge. “At some point, more things and details will come out and I think this next season of Vanderpump Rules you’ll see a lot more.” But Tom did learn some lessons.
“It’s gotten me to really appreciate things in my life that maybe I took for granted,” he confessed. “I really appreciate the friends that have stuck by me. That didn’t jump on a bandwagon or a movement. I appreciate more of the littler things in life.”
