VPR Finale Shocker! Ariana Madix Rejects Tom Sandoval Apology -- Leading Him To Go NUCLEAR!

VPR Finale Shocker! Ariana Madix Rejection Leads Tom Sandoval To Go NUCLEAR!

Ariana Madix refuses to have any complicity in the redemption arc of Tom Sandoval — even if her job depends on it. She proved in the shocking Vanderpump Rules finale she was willing to walk away whether he liked it or not. And boy, he did NOT like it!

During Tuesday night’s Season 11 finisher, Ariana stood her ground when it came to her refusal to film with her cheating ex — especially when he approached her to try to apologize during a party in San Francisco. You may recall Scheana Shay previously encouraged Sandoval to own up to weaponizing the Love Island host’s mental health throughout the aftermath of his affair with Rachel Leviss. Well, he decided to do just that. He tried to apologize. Only… instead of having a private conversation with Ariana, he chose to do it in front of cameras in the middle of a massive event. And Ariana wasn’t having any of it!

The 38-year-old Something About Her co-owner never wanted or asked for an apology. As she told Scheana, she just never wants “him to speak to me ever again.” Totally fair, considering he cheated on her for SEVEN MONTHS! With a friend of hers and everything! That’s a betrayal you don’t easily forgive — and anyone saying she has to, well… She’s telling them where to shove it.

So when Sandoval attempted to speak with her on screen, you can imagine how that went! He walked up while she was talking to Scheana, basically ambushing her! But Ariana immediately stormed off. As she walked away, the Tom Sandoval & The Most Extras frontman called after her:

“Ariana, wait one second. I just wanted to tell her I am sorry.”

However, Ariana didn’t want to listen to one word of what he has to say. And she made that crystal clear to producers once and for all. She even started taking off her mic! That’s when the fourth wall was broken and the folks filming the show stepped in. Executive producer Jeremiah Smith begged her not to leave the event and “end like this.” Presumably he wanted her to have the big confrontation for the finale. Well, Ariana just went OFF on him, blasting Sandoval like we’ve never seen:

“Him f**king walking up on me talking to Scheana. He doesn’t give a f**k if I died in a ditch or got a deadly STD the way he was f**king around behind my back. That is non-informed consent and he doesn’t deserve to speak to me. He doesn’t get access to me.”

Absolutely! Preach it, girl! She does not owe him a single damned thing! That’s when she hit the bullseye, calling out Sandy for what he was really doing. And it wasn’t apologizing. She judged:

“It’s about a performance for the audience. He wants 30 seconds with the audience.”

Go off, girl! She read him as a fake ass reality star — and not a remorseful ex. Ariana added in a confessional:

“Whatever it is that Tom is trying to get from me is not for me. It is for him. I am the final boss in his video game of redemption. And because he can’t get to the final boss, he is f**king pissed.”

AMAZING! And yeah she called it, alright! Sandoval was definitely PISSED! Once the TomTom co-owner realized she wouldn’t talk to him — and he wouldn’t get his 30 seconds to show the audience he’d changed after all — he did a complete 180. The man went nuclear. He bashed Ariana to friend Billie Lee and anyone who could hear, yelling:

“This is f**king bullshit. Ariana is going around saying I am not being honest and I am performative. Do you know what it is? Ariana is f**king performative. She doesn’t like any of these motherf**kers. So she can f**k off saying I am performative.”

Sandoval then slammed Ariana for being “lazy”… again:

“If you don’t want to film with your ex then don’t be on this show. Don’t sit back on your f**king lazy ass and collect a f**king check for doing nothing.”

And his tirade didn’t end there! Things escalated when he rushed over to shout at Scheana, Jeremiah, Tom Schwartz, and Lala Kent about Ariana, trying to sow the seeds of mistrust against her:

“I’m f**king pissed. Not at you. I am pissed that she is f**king saying that s**t. Because Ariana? She doesn’t f**k with you guys. On the real. She f**king talks s**t about all of you f**kers. She doesn’t show up for your s**t, she is not going to come for your f**king thing. I am going to come. When push comes to shove, I am f**king there.”


Sandoval wasn’t the only one with a bone to pick with Ariana. Lala ranted about her (now former?!) friend for walking out instead of filming with her ex-boyfriend — and she didn’t hold back! She fired off:

“I have my own point of view but I have been biting my tongue. I am not afraid. It is a lot of breaking the fourth wall so I am going to do it now. S**t happened to her and the whole world rallied around her. She now thinks she is Beyoncé.”

Oh snap! The Give Them Lala podcast host continued:

“It is bulls**t that she can’t film with someone that she stays under the same roof. It is a lot. It is a lot that she says, ‘Don’t f**k with Tom Sandoval. But I am going to sleep down the hall from Tom Sandoval.’ I get it, he f**king cheated. He did a really f**king s**tty thing. It is weird how you looked us all in the eye and said a lot of s**t. But he didn’t kill anyone. She moved on eight days later. Eight days. I have never in my life experienced someone who gets cheated on and suddenly she becomes God.”

Damn! It kind of comes across like Lala is more offended by Ariana dating someone else eight days after the relationship was over than she is at Sandoval for dating someone else seven months before the relationship was over. Don’t you think?

The real question though… Is Lala really judging Ariana’s actions and attitude after her ordeal though? Or does it come across to y’all that she’s more upset with how the world is treating her co-star. After all, no one gave Lala the world when she got cheated on by her gross baby daddy. Why didn’t Lala get hosting gigs and Dancing With The Stars, right? For real, was this actually just some sour grapes?

But don’t expect Lala’s words to change Ariana’s mind. Nor any reality TV producer trying to get the best trailer moment. No matter what anyone says, Ariana is sticking with her boundaries, and rightly so. She explained in a confessional the main reason she refused to speak to Sandoval that night:

“We live these difficult parts of our lives on camera. But if it is something that actually mattered to you regardless you would do it anyways. He has never tried to talk to me off camera. He could have written something like a f**king letter and left it on the kitchen counter and I could have read it at my leisure. But if he would only do it on camera then to me you showed your true colors.”

So true!! There’s nothing genuine about him trying to have a conversation and apologize to her for the first time in months on camera in the middle of a massive party. We mean, they shared a house for months, he had every opportunity to reach out to her and let her know his regrets! He isn’t acting like someone who thinks they made a mistake, he’s acting like someone who wants a treat for saying sorry. Sandoval never would have approached like that if he was legit remorseful for his actions. He also wouldn’t have turned around and bashed her in front of all their friends when he didn’t get what he wanted from her. This move was only meant to try and paint him as the good guy rather than being genuinely sorry.

And if you need more proof he’s not full of regret, look no further than the delicious final twist. The cherry on top of the VPR finale was a hot mic moment at the end of the episode! Schwartz could be heard commenting on the drama as Ariana left, saying

“That was a f**king plot twist.”

Sandoval then chimed in with a laugh:

“I love it. It’s good for me.”

That alone says it all right there, doesn’t it? All of this was just to make Ariana look bad or unreasonable and turn the cast against her in the hopes of redeeming himself in the eyes of everyone. He pulled this “performative” stunt just to benefit himself in the long run. And it’s safe to say no fan is falling for the BS, even if some cast members are.
