We did not think we’d get a sneak peek of what’s to come on the second half of the season on Vanderpump Rules so soon — but editors are working OVERTIME! And this footage is J-U-I-C-Y!
On Monday, People exclusively debuted the VPR midseason tease — and it reveals the first footage of Ariana Madix and Tom Sandoval following the explosive Raquel Leviss affair reveal!
We’d already heard the exes would be confronting one another in a one-on-one post-breakup convo — and that it wasn’t going to be pretty as she reportedly left feeling Tom “gaslit” her. You’ll soon get to judge for yourself!
What we do see in the preview is an emotional Sandoval saying:
“I wish we both would have tried harder.”
Uh, tried harder not to put your penis elsewhere?? What exactly was Ariana supposed to have tried harder to do??
Obviously PH readers will know Ariana dumped Sandoval after learning he’d been cheating with Raquel. Apparently she found out in a traumatic way, too — finding an explicit video of the two of them together on his phone! But it gets worse when you learn her boyfriend (of nine years!) and her close friend had been sleeping together behind her back for about seven months!!! So it’s perfectly understandable when Ariana spits back her ex:
“You don’t deserve one f**king tear of mine.”
Hell. YEAH. Later, Sandoval asks Ariana, “Do you want anything?” And her response is ALREADY one of the most iconic moments in Bravo history as she snaps back:
“For you to die.”
We also get a look at what led up to this, the problems in the couple’s relationship — including Sandoval seemingly blaming the affair on Ariana! He complains they were only “having sex, like, four times a year?” She blasts at him:
“I cannot have sex with somebody who feels like a stranger.”
Apparently Sandoval can! He’s since been accused of sleeping with a third woman, cheating on both Ariana AND Raquel, too!
Meanwhile the teaser also shows how some of the other cast are impacted by the shocking revelations. Tom Schwartz can be seen cradling Sandoval, as his bestie cries in his arms. Scheana Shay sheds some tears, too, reacting to the news by saying:
“This is a full-blown love affair. I had so much rage in me.”
The fallout! Whoa! Watch the full teaser (below):
