Ariana Madix will be seen discussing the sordid details of Tom Sandoval‘s months-long affair with her former best friend, Raquel Leviss, on the Vanderpump Rules finale.
While chatting with Katie Maloney and Scheana Shay at the home she still shares with her ex-boyfriend, Ariana revealed that after tragically losing her dog, Charlotte, she learned that Sandoval and Raquel hooked up in her car.
“Tell me everything,” Katie began in a sneak peek at the May 17 episode shared by Queens of Bravo on Instagram.
“So I went with Tom to TomTom because he had that party thing. I found a screen recording of them on FaceTime. It was literally from the night before. He was at [Tom Schwartz]’s,” Ariana explained, giving a nod to the NSFW video Sandoval made of himself and Raquel.
“He was at Schwartz’s doing this?” Katie wondered.
“What?” Scheana asked.
“That’s when I called Raquel and I like, starting like making her f-cking tell me, like, ‘What the f-ck? When did this start?’” Ariana continued. “She said, ‘Right after the girls’ trip.’ I’m like, ‘You mean right after Charlotte died?’”
At that point, a flashback scene from Pump Rules is seen, which features Ariana breaking down to her co-stars, including Lala Kent, about the passing of her beloved pet.
Then, back in the scene, Ariana goes on to tell her castmates and friends that after Raquel admitted to kissing her then-boyfriend, she questioned Sandoval, who ultimately confessed to sleeping with Raquel just outside of their home.
“So she said they kissed. Well, later that night, when we were out here, I pressed Tom. He said, well, they actually f-cked in her car that night,” Ariana stated as a flabbergasted Katie said, “Shut the f-ck up.”
“And he didn’t have a key to get in so he had to ring the doorbell and I had to let him in,” Ariana recalled.
And if that weren’t bad enough, Ariana revealed Sandoval actually got mad at her after she discovered his secret romance with Raquel.
“My emotions were clearly all over the place and he was angry at me. Angry. At me,” she shared.
As Pump Rules fans may recall, an insider told Page Six after the affair was uncovered in March that after confronting Sandoval about the issue, Ariana felt “gaslit.”
“Ariana walked away from the conversation feeling like she was gaslit by Tom,” the insider said. “He gave her several excuses as to why he never copped to cheating.”
“Tom said he didn’t tell her about the affair with Raquel because he was worried about how it would impact her mental health, even claiming that he was especially concerned after her grandma died last year,” the source added, signaling to the September 2022 passing of Ariana’s grandmother.
The Vanderpump Rules season 10 finale airs Wednesday at 9/8c on Bravo.
