Ariana Madix is Living a "Nightmare" With Sandoval and Haunted by Raquel Affair in Home as She Accepts MTV Awards for Vanderpump Rules


Ariana Madix has continued to live with Tom Sandoval in the months since his affair with Raquel Leviss. And, unsurprisingly, doing so had been a significant challenge.

As an insider admitted that Ariana is living a nightmare at her and Sandoval’s shared home, which they have yet to put on the market, she, Katie Maloney, and Scheana Shay were seen accepting the award for Best Reality On-Screen Team at the MTV Movie & TV Awards on Sunday.

Although Vanderpump Rules lost the award for Best Docu-Reality Show to The Kardashians, the ladies were happy to accept the gold popcorn statue for making a great team.

“Wow, Best Onscreen Team,” Katie said in a video featuring her and her castmates in matching Every Nite is VPR Nite hoodies. “Thank you so much, MTV, and especially to everyone that voted for us.”

“And the team isn’t just us,” Scheana added. “I mean, we have an entire production team behind us that makes this show possible. And this is just so exciting! We won best team all because of you guys, the fans, thank you so much for voting.”

Ariana thanked the fans as she seemingly gave the nod to “Scandoval.”

“We’ve been through so many ups and downs as friends, and obviously, it’s been a very tumultuous time in all of our lives. But we are truly at our best when we come together as a team, so thank you!” she declared.

Meanwhile, Lala, who was also part of the team but chose not to appear on the show in support of the writers’ strike, addressed the win in a video of her own, during which she wore a Send It to Darrell hoodie.

“Hello my loves, thank you all for voting for me and my most favorite girls, Scheana, Katie, Ariana,” she said. “We are beyond grateful. This is crazy. Again, Thank you guys so much.”

As for what’s going on behind the doors of Sandoval and Ariana’s Valley Village home, a source claims Ariana is enduring a “nightmare” situation with her ex.

“Tom and Ariana bought the $2 million home in 2019 when everything was going well in their relationship, and now it’s all gone to hell,” an insider explained to Life & Style on May 8. “Even though they avoided each other, being under the same roof was like living in a nightmare.”

While Ariana and Sandoval are no longer sharing a bedroom, Ariana is said to be haunted by the idea that her ex and his mistress hooked up in the home when she was away, including when she was in Florida attending her grandmother’s funeral.

“Ariana hates the thought of Tom and Raquel hooking up in various rooms. The house had great memories, she loved living there, but he and Raquel ruined that for her,” the source added.

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