Tom Sandoval and Raquel Leviss have been making headlines due to their cheating scandal on the popular reality TV show “Vanderpump Rules.” Tom, who was in a long-term relationship with Ariana Madix, admitted to cheating on her with Raquel, who happened to be Ariana’s best friend and co-star on the show. The scandal, known as “Scandoval,” came to light on March 3, 2023, while Season 10 was still airing, leaving Ariana and their friends shocked and hurt by their betrayal.
In May, it was reported that Tom and Raquel had officially ended their relationship, with rumors suggesting that Tom had already moved on to someone new. He was seen in Austin with Karlee Hale, a Texas-based influencer, raising speculations about their romantic involvement.
According to insider sources, it was Raquel who decided to end their relationship just two months after their affair became public. The insider stated, “Raquel decided to leave. She realized Tom wasn’t the right person for her.” However, Ariana doesn’t believe the breakup story and quickly refuted it by sharing some inside information.
During an episode of “Watch What Happens Live” on May 17, which aired after the Season 10 finale, host Andy Cohen asked Ariana about Tom and Raquel’s alleged split. Ariana responded firmly, “I don’t believe that at all. She was sending letters to my house just four days ago.”
Ariana clarified that she and Tom were still living together at the time and mentioned receiving a letter addressed to him in Raquel’s handwriting. She didn’t open it and simply left it on the table. This revelation contradicted the reported breakup and raised doubts about the truth behind their relationship status.
During the shocking finale of “Vanderpump Rules,” Raquel expressed her feelings about Tom. In a confessional, she revealed, “I was curious to experience a physical relationship with someone I love. I already loved him as a friend, and it was a completely new experience for me.”
While it’s unclear whether Tom and Raquel are still together or if Tom has moved on, rumors have surfaced about Ariana potentially finding a new love interest. According to People magazine, Ariana has been spotted with Daniel Wai, and they were seen holding hands and kissing at Coachella in April. Daniel even shared their moments together on his Instagram.
It appears that Ariana may have found a new romance after attending Daniel’s birthday celebration in New York City. An insider disclosed, “Ariana has been telling her friends that she’s falling in love with him.” They added, “Their relationship is progressing faster than she expected, but he treats her well, they have fun together, and she’s happy to embark on this next chapter with such an amazing guy.”
In conclusion, the scandal between Tom, Raquel, and Ariana continues to captivate fans of “Vanderpump Rules.” While Tom and Raquel’s breakup is still uncertain, Ariana seems to be moving on and exploring new romantic possibilities.
