Lisa Vanderpump Finds Herself at the Center of Scandoval Cheating Scandal
Lisa Vanderpump, known for her role in Vanderpump Rules and handling cast drama, has recently been entangled in the scandal surrounding Tom Sandoval’s infidelity with Raquel Leviss, which occurred while he was in a relationship with Ariana Madix.
This cheating scandal has caused a rift among the cast members and those close to Lisa, creating a challenging situation for the Vanderpump Rules matriarch.
Ariana broke her silence regarding the fallout of Scandoval during her appearance on Watch What Happens Live after the Season 10 finale. She commented that Lisa may have been too lenient towards Sandoval during his emotional outburst.
Recently, Lisa attended the 5th Annual Vanderpump Dogs Gala at The Maybourne Hotel in Beverly Hills. While the event aimed to support Lisa’s Vanderpump Dog Foundation, it was difficult to escape the shadow cast by the Scandoval scandal, which has affected everything surrounding Vanderpump Rules.
During an interview with Us Weekly, Lisa was asked about her thoughts on Ariana’s reaction to her treatment of Sandoval in the Vanderpump Rules finale. Lisa expressed her condemnation of Sandoval’s actions, stating, “I’ve known him for a long time. Of course, I’m condemning what he did. That’s why I said, ‘You’re not a bad person. You just did a bad thing.’ And my heart was always with Ariana.” While Lisa did not openly berate Sandoval like others, she made it clear that she does not condone or support his behavior towards Ariana or their mutual friends.
When Sandoval had a meltdown in Lisa’s living room, she chose not to add fuel to the fire. Lisa observed that he seemed broken, and she didn’t want to further contribute to his emotional distress. She revealed that Sandoval’s breakdown was even more intense off-camera than what viewers witnessed.
Terri Seymour from Extra also took the opportunity to discuss the Scandoval situation with Lisa at the gala. Terri inquired about Lisa’s thoughts on Raquel’s reported check-in at a mental health facility. Lisa admitted that she hadn’t spoken to Raquel at all and therefore couldn’t comment on the matter. Furthermore, she was unaware of the current status of Sandoval and Raquel’s relationship following their rumored breakup.
