Ariana Madix Addresses Gender Stereotypes And Being ‘One Of The Guys’ On Vanderpump Rules

Ariana Madix is just one of the guys. Well, sometimes. After this week’s Vanderpump Rules episode found Ariana not just part of Tom Schwartz‘s bachelor party, but the lone dude, she’s speaking out about gender stereotypes and defending herself against accusations that she tries too hard to roll with the homies.

Ariana is offended by the criticisms, tweeting, “When some1 makes fun of me saying I try to be a dude or ‘cool,’ it hurts bc my ex always said I was not ‘girly’ enough. U be you, I’ll be me. k?”

Ariana insists that although she can’t get along with the girls on the show, in her real life, she has only female friends. Like Scheana Marie, right?! “All my friends off the show are women, tho,” she explains. “I love them for who they are and they love me for me. There’s no box to fit in.”

Since she’s box-free, Ariana fully embraced playing “Jordan Tyler,” the Justin Bieber wannabe, and tried to have fun with it while also taking the opportunity to break gender stereotypes. To those complaining that Ariana isn’t the right person to be raising awareness, she argues,  “Well I’m the one who the producers ask about it to get my POV, so you’ll have to take that up with them.”

What – is Ariana getting a consulting fee from production? HA.

Anyway, back to Ariana’s alter-ego, Jordan Tyler:

For the record, Jax Taylor gets Ariana’s vote for the best ‘dragged dude’ after he pissed in his pantyhose. I’m sure Tom 1 is crying into his wig over not being voted No. 1 Drag Guy.

Tom 2 championed his besties’ unconventional relationship, tweeting a photo of Ariana and Tom 1 in their reverse roles.

“Loved bad b****** that’s his fn problem @ariana2525 @TomSandoval1 #pumprules,” tweeted Ariana. Love comes in all shapes, sizes, and Toms!
