Ariana Madix Explains Accusations Tom Sandoval Tried to ‘Kill’ Her Dog

Overall, it was a good weekend for Vanderpump Rules fans at BravoCon 2023. Even though they had to deal with seeing Tom Sandoval on the show’s panel, they also got to see fan favorites, like Ariana Madix.

Moreover, fans were finally treated to a release date and trailer for Vanderpump Rules Season 11. Though it hasn’t been too long since Season 10 wrapped up, fans have still been exerting all the patience in the world in waiting for what comes next. One clip from the trailer had fans particularly intrigued.

Ariana addressed Tom, saying, “Ruin my life, my home, and then f*cking attempt to kill my f*cking dog. My lawyer will be dealing with you.” Speculation abounded as to what she meant, and just how Tom attempted to kill Ariana’s dog.

Ariana on Tom: “Emotions are heightened”

On Saturday, Us Weekly got the chance to speak to Ariana and Katie Maloney on the red carpet. When asked about Ariana’s claim that Tom killed her dog, she said, “[It was] just reckless, careless stuff. Nothing new, nothing that’s out of the ordinary. But yeah, I mean obviously emotions are heightened and yeah, that’s all.”

Katie added, “I think the people were confused because they thought it had to do with Charlotte.” Ariana’s chihuahua, Charlotte York, died in 2022. In 2020, Tom and Ariana adopted Mya Moon. However, Ariana said that she owned the dog exclusively, despite Billie Lee being spotted walking the pup.

Those were all the details Katie and Ariana were willing to divulge. Still, the possibility remains that we may receive more context before Season 11 airs. Until then, we’ll see what other “reckless, careless” behavior Tom might get himself into.

Vanderpump Rules Season 11 airs on Bravo in January 2024.
