The Big Picture
- Vanderpump Rules couple Ariana and Tom continue to live together in the same house after their breakup, leading to uncomfortable situations.
- Ariana is determined to fully move on from the relationship by selling the house and making a new investment.
- The upcoming season of Vanderpump Rules will address Ariana’s personal journey post-breakup, including her new business ventures and rise in popularity.
Fans of Vanderpump Rules watched the cast go from renting apartments as they bartended and served to buying their own homes. Ariana Madix and Tom Sandoval bought a huge home together in 2013. It was a big step for the couple and Ariana was open about their financial plans with Lisa Vanderpump on the show. The couple’s relationship blew up because of Tom’s cheating in 2023, and the house kept them uncomfortably close together.
The teaser for season 11 reality series shows Ariana and Tom living in the same house, but hardly speaking. “I’ll just keep existing like I normally do in my own house,” she tells Scheana Shay in one scene. But that’s easier said than done. There is a later scene of Tom and Ariana arguing in the house. Ariana opened up about the last step to fully move on from their relationship.
