Who knew that getting cheated on could do such wonders for your career? Just a few months ago, the only people who cared about Ariana Madix, Tom Sandoval, and Raquel Leviss were Vanderpump Rules fans. Now that their cheating scandal broke the internet and captivated the nation, even people who don’t watch reality TV know what’s happening with the Pump Rules cast. And Ariana’s career is blossoming because of it.
We recently shared that Ariana booked a role in a Lifetime movie amid the internet-breaking cheating scandal. Now, Page Six reported that she’s joining the cast of Dancing with the Stars next season. Folks, that’s how you rebound from a bad breakup!
Although DWTS hasn’t officially announced the cast for the upcoming season, an insider told the outlet that Ariana is super close to signing on the dotted line. The source said, “ABC is in late-stage conversations” with her to be a contestant. The source also alleged that Ariana has already received the stamp of approval from Bravo and NBCUniversal to foxtrot her way over to Disney+ for Season 32.
It’s not like anyone is keeping score, but if there were a winner and a loser in the Scandoval drama, Ariana is coming out on top. She has the support of everyone on the Pump Rules cast. The entire VPR fanbase is rooting for her, and her career is on fire with these new gigs. Meanwhile, Sandoval is trying to figure out his “next chapter” with Raquel. His best friend, Tom Schwartz, recently compared their relationship to heroin addiction. So, it seems like things are going well over there.
Of course, we can’t say for sure if this rumor about Ariana joining Dancing with the Stars is true. Everyone knows nothing is confirmed for DWTS until their annual cast announcement on Good Morning America. Still, it sounds like Page Six’s insider knows what they’re talking about, and it makes perfect sense for DWTS to recruit Ariana during her highly-publicized split.
She’s one of the most talked-about reality TV stars right now. Who knows — maybe she’ll find her next romance in one of the pro dancers. It wouldn’t be the first time a celebrity and a pro dancer found love behind the scenes of the show.
