Ariana Madix is like a phoenix rising from the ashes of Scandoval. After her longtime boyfriend, Tom Sandoval cheated on her with her friend Raquel Leviss, Ariana was blindsided. But since then, this Vanderpump Rules star has been thriving. As for Sandoval? Not so much.
Ariana has a new man, Daniel Wai. Her business venture with VPR co-star Katie Maloney, a sandwich shop called Something About Her, seems like it will be a success. And Ariana was spotted there with Derek Hough recently. Daily Mail shared the details.
Is Ariana going to cha-cha to the DWTS ballroom?
In case you live under a rock, Derek is a judge on Dancing with the Stars. Which makes this lunch date remarkably interesting.
In April 2023, an insider claimed, “ABC is in late-stage conversations” with Ariana to join Season 32 of DWTS.” As the cast for the upcoming season hasn’t been announced yet, Ariana also hasn’t commented.
“I mean, she’s gotten endorsement deals. She’s on Dancing with the Stars,” Andy stated. “The way people responded to her last night was so positively.” That sounds like a confirmation to me!
We will have to wait and see if this lunch was simply a friendly get-together. Or maybe something ballroom related.
Pump Rules is filming Season 11 now. All the cast has signed on, except for Raquel. She is in a mental health facility receiving treatment, but soon to be checking out. There are rumors that new cast members may be added.
Fingers crossed that Ariana will be doing the tango in the ballroom this fall.
Season 32 of Dancing with the Stars will premiere this fall, Mondays at 8/7c on ABC and Disney+.
