We may need to bring out the world’s smallest violin for Tom Sandoval.
As you probably already know, Bravo’s longtime personality is at the center of perhaps the biggest scandal in reality TV history.
He admitted to cheating on Ariana Madix, after telling the public that he was sleeping behind his girlfriend’s back, with none other than her alleged friend and ultimate co-star, Raquel Leviss.
Even Leviss seems to have turned on Sandoval at this point because of all his lies and manipulations.
According to The Messenger, meanwhile, Madix and Leviss aren’t the only ones fed up with Sandoval.
This website writes that “no one in the (Vanderpump Rules) cast is in contact with Sandoval” these days, adding that it includes Sandoval’s former close friend and business associate, Tom Schwartz.
It’s unclear exactly what this means, of course, because Vanderpump Rules is in the process of filming Season 11… and Sandoval will be heavily involved in the new episodes.
Perhaps the above report simply means that the cast members don’t speak to him once the cameras stop rolling.
Sandoval and Leviss are no longer a romantic couple, while Tom confessed this spring to sleeping A LOT behind Madix’s back.
Seems like a pretty shady individual. Someone who lacks any kind of moral compass, you know?
In March, he publicly apologized to Leviss for everything he put him through.
However, she didn’t exactly accept this mea culpa.
“I want first and foremost to apologize to everyone I have hurt during this process,” Sandoval began via an Instagram statement four months ago.
“Most of all, I want to apologize to Ariana.
“I made mistakes, I was selfish and I made reckless decisions that hurt someone I love. No one deserves to feel that pain in such a traumatic and public way.”
The musician and businessman continued:
“I can only imagine how devastating this has been for Ariana and everyone around us. I feel really horrible about it.
“My biggest regret is dishonoring Ariana. I never wanted to disappoint so many people, including our loving families and friends.”
According to numerous sources, Sandoval and Leviss began having sex in December 2022.
Concluding his apology, Sandoval wrote:
Sandoval went on to reflect on his long relationship with Madix.
“My love for Ariana was stronger than any camera could have captured.
“Some of our best moments together were never filmed. The same goes for some of our biggest struggles. I wish things would happen in a different order and that our relationship wouldn’t be severely tarnished, and that it would end with the same respect for her that it began with.
“I owed Ariana more.
“I am beyond sad that it ended the way it did.
“The decisions I made hurt a lot of people. I acted in a way that clashes with who and how I want to be. I will continue reflecting and working on myself.
“I have work to do. I always have and always will.”
