Inside How ‘Vanderpump Rules’ Captured the #Scandoval (EXCLUSIVE)
Vanderpump Rules” star Tom Sandoval and his aptly named band, Tom Sandoval & The Most Extras, were performing at TomTom, Lisa Vanderpump’s West Hollywood restaurant in which he and his best friend and fellow castmate Tom Schwartz share a small ownership stake. Sandoval’s phone fell out of his pocket, and someone gave it to Ariana Madix — Sandoval’s partner in life and in work for nine years — for safekeeping. On the May 17 season finale of “Vanderpump Rules,” Madix explains what happened next. “Call it woman’s intuition, call it lightbulb, call it whatever,” Madix says in a confessional interview to the cameras. “Literally in that moment, I went, I need to look at this.” What she saw on Sandoval’s camera roll was a FaceTime screen recording of him and Raquel Leviss, their castmate and friend on the Bravo show. “My stomach dropped into my fucking ass,” Madix says.
