‘Vanderpump Rules’ Star Ariana Madix Explains Why She & Ex Tom Sandoval Still Live Together; Stassi Schroeder Offers Her Thoughts On Their Living Situation

“Let me make this VERY clear: I’m not sticking around to hear you sing and blow that damn horn.”

Ariana Madix revealed this week why she and ex Tom Sandoval are still shacking up together, nearly six months after she found out that Sandoval was cheating on her with their friend and fellow Vanderpump Rules cast member, Rachel Leviss. 

As The Ashley previously reported, Ariana and Sandoval continue to reside in the Valley Village casa they purchased together for $2 million in 2019; however, the exes do not interact with each other and allegedly only communicate through a third party.

The house of hostility currently shared by Sandoval and Ariana.

Shortly after the Scandoval broke in March, many fans online began questioning why neither Sandoval nor Ariana had moved out of their shared home, and when asked the question on social media this week, Ariana finally explained why she has yet to relocate.

“I live in my home that I own while working with my lawyer and financial advisors to navigate the best path forward before uprooting my dog and my elderly cat and causing more trauma for the three of us,” she wrote. 

Those who tuned in to listen to Rachel’s recent interview on Bethenny Frankel‘s Just B podcast got to hear Rachel’s take on the former couple’s current living situation, which she admitted didn’t surprise her.

” … Because in my eyes, it’s been this way,” Rachel claimed, insisting Ariana and Sandoval hadn’t been a “romantic couple” in quite some time.  

“Well if Rachel says it, you KNOW it’s true!”

Stassi Schroeder also commented on the cohabitation of her former ‘Vanderpump Rules’ co-stars this week during an episode of her Straight Up With Stassi podcast. 

“I’m always down to share my opinion, and more importantly, remind everyone how much I truly hate Tom Sandoval.”

Like many others, Stassi took issue with Rachel’s recent interview, though much of her anger was directed at Bethenny herself for not being more informed of the ‘Vanderpump Rules’/Scandoval situation prior to interviewing Rachel.

(Bethenny admitted on Part 1 of the interview that she had never watched ‘Vanderpump Rules’ and only became familiar with the Bravo series by watching clips after the Scandoval broke.) 

Stassi also questioned why Bethenny seemed to put a lot of emphasis on the fact that Ariana still lives with her ex-boyfriend. 

“She’s not living with Sandoval because she’s forgiven him,” Stassi said. “She’s living with Sandoval because she’s like, ‘This is my house too and I refuse to leave my own home,’ and Sandoval is being a gaslighting prick motherf**ker who is refusing to leave.”

  1. Ariana DOESN’T come from money which is precisely why she is staying put until everything is sorted out and she can walk away with what she is entitled to.

  2. My opinion is ari got with Sandoval to be on the show and she is stating in that house until she figures out her next move. Ari comes from money. Sandoval is the one that is on the edge.

  3. I am no lawyer but I believe if she did so it would have legal ramifications so she’s doing what so many of us have had to get what she wants. She put on her big girl panties and isn’t walking without her money. Clever girl!
