There is none of that! Vanderpump Rules’ Ariana Madix and Tom Sandoval quelled split speculation ahead of season 10.
Madix, 37, told exclusively Us Weekly on Saturday, Oct. 15, that she and Sandoval, 39, are “fine” despite breakup rumors swirling after more than eight years together.
“But you know what’s funny? I was just telling somebody else, I was like, ‘I also like to gossip about, like, people that I watch on TV,'” she said while attending BravoCon 2022 in New York. “I’m looking at all those blind items [online] and things like that. I’m in it, so I totally understand.”
The Fancy AF cocktails the co-writer teased, “If you kept track of all that stuff — I mean, we’ve been together for almost nine years — you’d think we’d broken up 50 times.”
Co-owner Schwartz & Sandy also exclusively confirmed Us on Saturday that he and Madix are still going strong. “We are great. We’re doing really well,” Sandoval explained during BravoCon, noting that he’s seen headlines about their alleged breakup “for years.”
The Missouri native recalled fans in the past who thought the couple was over after seeing a moving truck near him. Sandoval, however, said Us that it was all a misunderstanding.
“We were shooting this thing for Alka-Seltzer and people were like, ‘Oh yeah, they’re done. [There’s] they are moving the trucks in front,” he said, implying that the trucks were just for filming.
While the Florida native and TomTom co-founder insisted they have no drama in their relationship, the couple teased that Season 10 Vanderpump Rules will feature many different romances – and controversies – now that so many of their counterparts are single.
“Obviously, with all these people being single, that dynamic has shifted a lot,” Madix said Us on Saturday. “I mean, you’re bound to see some of them James [Kennedy’s] new girlfriend. So that’s a definite [a] a new dynamic and you will see it interacting with us. That’s a lot. It feels very new and different.”
Kennedy, 30, confirmed that he had split Raquel Leviss in December 2021 after five years together. Since then he has continued with Ally Lewber.
Another bravo couple who gave up was Tom Schwartz and Katie Maloneywho filed for divorce in March. Us confirmed on Thursday, October 13, that the former spouses had finalized their divorce the day before.
Schwartz, 39, was rumored to be getting cozy with Leviss, 28, earlier this year, but he exclusively said Us on Saturday that they are strictly “platonic”.
