Tom Sandoval is living the sober life.
In a video obtained by TMZ, the Vanderpump Rules star announced that he has been sober from alcohol for one month. Sandoval revealed his sobriety milestone last week during a performance with his cover band, Tom Sandoval and the Most Extras.
“It’s been one month since I’ve had my last drink of alcohol,” Sandoval told the crowd at The Space at Westbury on Long Island, New York. “I’m just taking a little break for a second.”
Sandoval went on to tell the crowd that he had recently traded booze for Heineken 0.0–– a non-alcoholic beer that his ‘VPR’ co-star Lala Kent has touted in the past, as she has been sober since 2018.
In addition to being involved with TomTom Restaurant and Bar in West Hollywood and Schwartz & Sandy’s Lounge, Sandoval and his business partner/BFF
/partner in the Scandoval cover-up, Tom Schwartz, have their own whiskey, Tom’s Good Lovin.
The news of Sandoval’s seemingly temporary sobriety comes just two months after it was revealed that the 40-year-old bar owner had a months-long affair with co-star Raquel Leviss behind the back of his longtime girlfriend, Ariana Madix. (As fans know, Sandoval and Ariana released their own cocktail book in 2019, toting their love of alcohol even in the book’s title: Fancy AF Cocktails Drink Recipes from a Couple of Professional Drinkers.)
Both Sandoval and Raquel issued public apologizes to Ariana after their affair was revealed, with Sandoval admitting he “was selfish, and made reckless decisions that hurt somebody I love.”
“I am beyond sad that it ended the way it did,” he said in part. “The choices I made hurt so many people. I acted in a way that clashes with who I am and how I want to be.”
Tom has stated in interviews since the Scandoval broke that he is doing his best to improve himself, which may be the reason behind his alcohol sabbatical.
“I will continue to reflect and work on myself,” he said in a statement released after the Scandoval. “I have work to do. I always have, and I always will.”
