Ariana Madix reacted to a tell-all Raquel Leviss did with TMZ while making her way out of a nail salon on Wednesday afternoon.

After getting her nails painted red, likely in preparation for Thursday’s taping of the Vanderpump Rules reunion, Ariana was asked what she thought of the interview, during which Raquel spoke of her affair with Ariana’s now-ex-boyfriend, Tom Sandoval, and laughed as she admitted Ariana didn’t respond well to her text message apology.

“I don’t pay attention to any of that,” Ariana revealed, via Daily Mail, on March 22.

During the outing, Ariana was wearing a pink “Something About Her” sweater and white sweatpants with her hair up in a messy bun.

After returning home from Arizona on Tuesday, Raquel spoke to TMZ, admitting that her romance with Sandoval “started off as a friendship” and “turned into something more” before sharing where they stand now.

“I don’t know where our relationship is gonna be,” Raquel admitted. “We’re just trying to get through these next few steps and try to make amends, hear everybody out. I know a lot of people are angry so I think just getting through these next few steps and seeing where it goes. We’re not putting a label on anything. We’re just kinda taking a break for now.”

Also during the interview, Raquel, who will attend the reunion in person, despite her restraining order against Scheana Shay, confirmed she and Ariana spoke on the phone about the betrayal — and that she had apologized to her in a text message.

“She didn’t receive it very well,” Raquel shared, laughing as she said she preferred “not to say” what Ariana wrote in response.

During a previous outing in Los Angeles earlier this week, Ariana told TMZ, “I don’t know who you’re talking about,” when Raquel’s name was mentioned.

In other news, Ariana has landed a role alongside Meagan Good, Roger Cross, and Faith Wright in Lifetime’s upcoming film Buying Back My Daughter. The project, which follows a mother who discovers her missing teen daughter is been sex trafficked, per Deadline, is currently in production with no set premiere date as of yet.

Ariana will star as a police officer named Karen, who is part of the investigation and has her own connection to the story.

As Pump Rules fans may know, Ariana acted in several television shows prior to joining the Bravo reality series and after, including Anger Management, Dads, Waking Up With Strangers, and Single Siblings.

Vanderpump Rules season 10 airs Wednesdays at 9/8c on Bravo.
