After the couple called it quits amid filming on the Vanderpump Rules reunion, Ariana was asked a number of questions about the relationship, including what she believed was the biggest red flag between them.
“I think it was, you know, and I say this with nothing but love in my heart for James, but I think when he stropped drinking and became sober but there were other issues that he was not going to… His refusal to go to real therapy is a huge red flag for me,” Ariana shared on the WWHL: After Show on December 7.
Then, when Andy asked if she was referring to James’ “rage and pot” use, which he was seen discussing quitting on a recent episode, Ariana replied, “Yeah, sure.”
“Yes. Absolutely floored,” Ariana answered. “We were just at Disneyland like two days before that and I never would have thought anything was amiss so it was very shocking.”
Tom was equally caught off-guard, describing their Pump Rules reunion split as “probably the most surprising moment that we’ve had on Vanderpump Rules in years.”
Ariana was also asked if she felt the split was permanent.
“When I saw her Instagram Stories of her moving out with her dad I was like, ‘This feels very real,’” Ariana recalled.
“I don’t disagree with Scheana on that,” Ariana said. “I feel like Lala likes to pretend that she makes the rules for everybody. She even, in this episode tonight, was like, ‘Do I look like someone who has puffy sleeves and a tutu?’ Like, you’re not better than everybody else. I thought that was so rude.”
“It’s not worth saying because I don’t know how credible the sources were but in that moment in time, I was more using that as an example. Like, ‘If I’ve heard rumors..’ That’s what I was saying. I wouldn’t bring them up and just start mentioning them. Also, out of respect, because Lala had all these rules about what we can and can’t bring up and that’s what obviously annoyed me about her bringing up Brock’s,” he shared.
“Spoiler alert: You did say at the reunion that you had heard a lot of rumors about Randall,” Andy interjected.
“I had heard a couple,” he admitted.
Ariana was then asked about the Pump Rules reunion.
“It was intense. It wasn’t what I expected going into it,” Ariana revealed.
Vanderpump Rules season nine airs Tuesdays at 9/8c on Bravo.
