Ariana Madix is back with a vengeance!
The Vanderpump Rules star at the center of the Tom Sandoval/Raquel Leviss affair deleted her Instagram when the news broke, but she’s back on social media and has made her first statement about the drama.
It’s the reality TV comeback of a decade. Kristen Doute revealed that Ariana Madix apologized to her after learning about Tom Sandoval’s affair with Raquel Leviss.
Kristen dropped that news among other bombshells in an appearance on The Viall Files podcast on March 16th.
The former Vanderpump Rules star spoke to Nick Viall and his co-hosts about Tom’s infidelity and made headlines for calling Raquel “f**king dumb.”
The 40-year-old also slammed her ex-boyfriend for his “stupid band and his sequined pants and his nail polish and his dumb haircuts and the pedophile mustache.”
Tom’s fall from grace began on March 3 when TMZ reported that Ariana and Tom split after she found proof on his phone that the 39-year-old was cheating their co-star.
Sources told the outlet that Ariana found out about his relationship with Raquel over the course of a few days and quickly broke up with Tom. The outlet also revealed that Vanderpump Rules producers were informed about the situation and started filming.
Kristen shared that when she went to Ariana’s house after the news broke and recalled, “She immediately came up to me, gave me a hug, we both started crying. She’s like, ‘I love you, thank you for being here.’
“And then she said, I’m so fucking sorry. Like to me.”
Nick then asked why Ariana apologized to Kristen.
“Who knows what I mean? I have a million ideas,” she responded. “I could think of what she was sorry for not believing me dating him when, I mean she did wait until we were broken up. But I think even entertaining that, always thinking I was the crazy one for saying he was a cheater. Probably a multitude of things.
The former Bravo continued, “But I’m like, girl, you, you have an adult relationship with this person. This is like a, a real adult. Like essentially married without a certificate. I was like in a joke of a relationship. So like, don’t even go there in your mind…”
