Tom Sandoval blames Ariana Madix

Obviously Jax Taylor cheating on Brittany Cartwright with Faith Stowers is the main story line this season on Vanderpump Rules. This scandal damaged more than Jax and Brittany’s relationship.

Tom Sandoval and Ariana Madix, the couple that never fights (on camera, at least), ended up engaging in a screaming match on camera after Ariana showed Brittany the audio that Faith recorded during her hookup with Jax. Tom couldn’t believe that she did this at Brittany’s housewarming party when she (and everyone else) was wasted and Ariana avidly defended her decision.

Tom made it clear that he wasn’t just siding with his boy Jax when he got into it with Ariana and that viewers thinking he wasn’t on Brittany’s side is the “biggest misconception.”

His issue wasn’t that Ariana showed Brittany the recording. It was more about the timing and state of drunkenness. In an interview with Daily Pop, “If anything I was more on Brittany’s side, it’s just that Brittany was so drunk that the last thing I wanted her to do is hear something that traumatic in that state of mind.”

Obviously Brittany deserved to know what Jax was saying behind her back. Lala Kent had a valid point when she told Ariana, “Do you want to ruin her night or do you want to ruin her life?” On the other hand, why couldn’t they just meet up for a hangover brunch the next day and talk to her then? In the grand scheme of things, there is no “private” way to share this with Brittany since they are filming a reality TV show. Even one-on-one conversations make it into the episodes.

Brittany finding out while she’s wasted in a room with the entire cast made for great TV, but it had to be a rough night for her.
