Ariana Madix has been the shining star of Bravo since the Scandoval of it all. Who knew that Tom Sandoval cheating on her would lead to brand deals, TV gigs, and even more Vanderpump Rules fans than she already had? Definitely not Sandoval.
It was no surprise that Ariana was the queen of BravoCon 2023. She strutted through the Caesar’s Forum with security and Katie Maloney by her side, ready to sell those Something About Her-branded potato chips. Sandoval, meanwhile, lurked around and tried to sell overpriced TomTom sweatshirts from a pathetic booth in the corner. It was truly a symbol of their social standings at the moment.
BravoCon wasn’t without its drama. Ariana learned on a panel, in real-time, that some of her friends, *cough cough* Scheana Shay, allegedly hung out in Sandoval’s room over the weekend. Word on the street was that Lala Kent was there too, but Lauren from Utah shut that down real quick. Since Scheana and Ariana have been besties since the beginning, it left fans wondering if Scheana’s friendliness to Sandoval will be the last straw for Ariana.
Ariana Madix is keeping things mysterious
Scheana flat-out admitted to having a conversation with Sandoval in his suite at BravoCon. Access couldn’t wait for the convention to be over to track down Ariana and get her reaction to the hangout. “It’s weird. Lala was not in the room. I was with Lala and James [Kennedy] on that same panel,” Ariana explained. “Lala was not, but Scheana was. And I was like, ‘That’s weird.'”
A few days after the Bravolebs left Vegas, Access caught up with Ariana again to get the scoop about the Scheana of it all. Ariana admitted that she and Scheana had spoken since BravoCon, but she didn’t give much insight into their friendship status. “We’re good,” she said. With Ariana, fewer words always insinuate a whole lot more. However, she’s a smart reality star and is making us all wait for Season 11 to get the full tea.
Vanderpump Rules Season 11 premieres on Bravo in January 2024.
