Vanderpump Rules star Ariana Madix has had a tumultuous year but it will definitely end better than it began. While early 2023 found her battling with Tom Sandoval, she’s somehow evolved into a frontrunner on Dancing with the Stars.
Pump Rules is returning for Season 11 in January 2024 and fans will see the healing begin after Scandoval. Thanks to social media, we know most of the cast has already warmed back up to Tom. This is despite condemning him to Siberia during the Season 10 reunion. But Ari is still pretty chilly. Now Ariana thinks the wave of fan support she received in the wake of betrayal is about to crash all around her.
Is the tide about to turn?
Ariana might be in her villain era for Season 11 and feels viewers aren’t ready. That said, they might be more ready than she thinks. She is certainly no stranger to massive amounts of love and being propped up by kind words after her ex cheated with her best friend.
But over on Instagram, one viewer shared their thoughts and feels normalizing betrayal will be the new trend come January. The amazing team over at Bravosnarkside shared the scoop. “Mark my words, everyone’s gonna hate Ariana this season, and develop a soft spot for Tom,” the user wrote.
Ariana saw the comment and was prompted to reply. “Certainly wouldn’t be surprised if the audience swings that way.” With all due, I’m not sure because Scheana Shay and Lala Kent are okay with someone, the majority of the fans will follow suit. The viewing audience doesn’t need to hang out with Tom to appear on camera and is generally not fond of blatant douchebaggery
A teaser teasing Season 11
A teaser of the new season was shown at BravoCon and Ariana was absolutely a mess. She was still going through the motions of having to live with someone she despises and navigating seeing that person every single day.
The clip also showed Ari threatening Sandoval with her attorney because he was careless with her dog. While what he did wasn’t detailed, it’s not too far out of the realm to assume he may or may not have possibly left things out that could make an animal very sick if ingested. Perhaps.
We’ll have to see if Ariana’s prediction comes true, but I’m not sure I would put all of my money on the fandom turning on her. It’s a pretty loyal bunch, unlike Ariana’s cast mates.
