Vanderpump Rules is back and I love it. It’s ridiculous. It’s fake. Everyone is wasted and ragey and angry and can’t keep it in their pants, and hates each other and themselves, but I love it all. It’s no secret that I also love the Toms! Tom Sandoval promises this season is both the best and the worst, and then dishes on the opening of The Tom Tom Bar and his relationship with Ariana Madix.
“I thought going into Season 6 that, ‘Oh, this’ll be more of a chill season,’ but this is probably going to be one of the more scandalous ones, if not the most scandalous season yet,” Tom shares. “Definitely some mudslinging for sure.”
Tom is still hard at work on The Tom Tom Bar with his fellow Tomlett, so obviously he’s had a change of heart about Lisa Vanderpump‘s involvement. “We’re still working on it. It’s not all one hundred percent set in stone, but I feel very fortunate that Ken and Lisa are in this because I would be extremely, without them, I would just be very overwhelmed.” Oh, you think? Cause Tom 2 had a panic attack bartending, and Tom 1 can’t even handle buying a hair brush without extensive research!
Of the many outrageous things that happen in season six, the development of “a little bit of a bromance” between Jax Taylor and James Kennedy is one of the strangest. “Personally, I always thought that Jax and James had a lot of similarities and I feel like it’s one of the reasons why they’ve definitely butted heads. They have similar personalities, the way they handle certain situations, and so I feel like it’s one of the reasons why they’ve definitely butted heads, but in a way, they’ve gotten past that in a sense where they bond over it in a weird way,” reveals Tom.
On the unsurprisingly side, Tom and Ariana are still very much in love. A trip to Napa Valley (while under the eaves wine presumably) made them realize they’re each other’s forever, and marriage doesn’t matter.
Tom explains, “Even with marriage, the labels will add a lot of pressure because you start using phrases such as ‘until death do us part,’ or ‘forever,’ ‘until the end of time,’ ‘as long as I live,’ and it’s a grim way of looking at a relationship versus just taking it as a day at a time.”
Tom also dishes on the biggest stars to visit SUR and Villa Blaca, his favorite party spots in LA, karaoke, and more. You can read the complete interview in LA Confidential Magazine.
