Andy Cohen opened up about the March 23 taping of the Vanderpump Rules reunion on Monday’s episode of his Radio Andy series.

Before telling listeners that the remaining episodes of season 10 are “jaw-dropping,” Andy said the cast of Pump Rules was “aggressive” and “confrontational” as he confirmed he filmed separate one-on-one interviews with Tom Sandoval, Ariana Madix, and Raquel Leviss.

“It was a real reckoning. If you are looking to hear their story, you will. If you are looking for them to be confronted to their face about what they’ve done in what I would say an aggressive manner, a confrontational manner, you will get it,” Andy teased on SiriusXM’s Andy Cohen Live on April 3.

As fans well know, the Pump Rules reunion was filmed just weeks after Sandoval and Raquel’s shocking affair was exposed. And while Raquel was unable to film with Scheana Shay, due to a restraining order she filed against her following a supposed altercation in New York City, she and Sandoval reportedly saw the wrath of other cast members.

“I did separate one-on-ones with Tom, Ariana, and Raquel so that I could get all of their stories just in conversation with me,” Andy explained. “I had my own concerns. I had my own things that I wanted to confront them about, things that I had noticed, so I got to do that, and, you know, so that’s how we started and then we brought them with the group.”

Although fans won’t get to see all that went down at the taping, Andy suggested Peacock will eventually release bonus footage.

“I think that Peacock is gonna release extended versions,” he shared. “I think you’re going to get extras on Peacock, and let me tell you, there is a lot of reckoning to get. I mean, we shot, you know, I did these one-on-ones. We shot a long time with the group, so I do feel like you’re going to get what you’re looking for.”

As for the remaining episodes, Andy said the final seven were unbelievable.

“I posted about how jaw-dropping they were. Of course, I got a lot of people saying, “You always say that. You always over-hype things.” I’m not overhyping this,” he insisted. “I’m not. I truly can’t believe it.”

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