Ariana Madix appeared on Everything Iconic with host Danny Pellegrino days ago and during the interview, the Vanderpump Rules star opened up about her castmates and health struggles.
She touched on a number of topics including Pump Rules newbie and proud transgender woman Billie Lee, who has been rumored to be dating Ariana’s brother Jeremy Madix.
“They are very close. I don’t know what their status is,” said Ariana, before adding that “they are not currently dating at this moment.” She wouldn’t say if they ever dated.
Jeremy’s relationship with Billie Lee will be addressed on the show. It also appears some allegations from his past, including alleged domestic violence and a restraining order by an ex-girlfriend, will also be a topic of conversation among Ariana’s castmates, some of whom have described Jeremy as being “creepy.”
The topic then turned to Scheana Marie’s roller coaster relationship with Rob Valletta.

I don’t know if she did or didn’t, but I just know it was a thing that she was talking about and then all of a sudden it was kind of like not anymore,” said Ariana.
She did reveal she believes Faith’s claims that Jax lied by telling Faith he and Brittany were breaking up.
Throughout the sixth season of the Bravo show, Ariana has been very open about her health struggles and body issues. And luckily for her, she has had the ongoing support of her boyfriend Tom Sandoval.
“He doesn’t have anxiety or depression. He may feel anxiety or might feel depressed in moments. So, it’s hard to explain those types of things but he is so willing to learn and he’s really supportive and I think that’s all I can really ask for,” she said
