Vanderpump Rules' Ariana Doesn't Think Tom And Raquel Are Putting A Stop To Their Affair

Tom Sandoval and Raquel Leviss have been dominating the headlines amidst their cheating scandal on the hit Bravo series, "Vanderpump Rules." Sandoval, who was in a relationship with Ariana Madix for nine years, eventually admitted to cheating on her with Madix's best friend and co-star after damning evidence was discovered on his phone. News of the scandal, dubbed "Scandoval," broke on March 3, 2023, while Season 10 was still airing, leaving Madix, along with her close friends and colleagues shocked by the duo's deceitfulness. 


However, in May, it was reported that Sandoval and Leviss had officially split, with Sandoval allegedly already moving on to someone new. The disgraced reality star and Texas-based influencer Karlee Hale have been spotted at least twice together in Austin, feeding speculation that they are more than just friends.

According to Page Six, Leviss was the one who called it quits on their relationship just two months after the shocking affair was made public. An insider revealed, "Raquel dipped out. Sandoval is not the one for her." Madix, however, isn't buying it and quickly shut the story down by sharing some insider information. 

Ariana doesn't buy that Tom and Raquel have split

During the May 17 episode of "Watch What Happens Live," which aired following the "Vanderpump Rules" season 10 finale, host Andy Cohen asked Ariana Madix for her thoughts on Tom Sandoval and Raquel Leviss' supposed split. "I don't buy that at all," she responded emphatically. "She was sending letters to my house like four days ago."


The fan-favorite reality star confirmed that she and Sandoval were still living in the same house at the time and that it was the only letter she knew about. Madix clarified: "I didn't open it. It was addressed to him and it was her handwriting. I just brought in the mail, saw it, put it on the table, and walked away." 

Raquel Leviss was not shy about showing how she really felt about Sandoval during the jaw-dropping finale, arguing during a confessional, "I was just so curious to know what it would be like to be physical with someone that you love because I already knew I loved him as a friend and I've never had sex like that before."

Ariana has reportedly found a new love interest

While it remains unclear whether Tom Sandoval and Raquel Leviss are still together or if he has moved on with someone new, rumors have been circulating that Ariana Madix may have also found a new love interest. According to People, Madix has been seen out and about with Daniel Wai. They were seen holding hands and kissing during the first weekend of Coachella, in April, with Wai even posting about it on his Instagram


It seems like it could potentially be a new budding romance for the beleaguered reality star, especially after she attended Wai's birthday bash in New York City. An insider shared, "Ariana's been telling people in her circle that she's falling in love with him." They added, "It's happening faster than she thought but he treats her well, they're having fun, and she's happy to be moving on to this next chapter with such an incredible guy."
