Tom Schwartz sent Ariana Madix a text after she learned about Tom Sandoval and Raquel Leviss‘ affair, which Schwartz kept secret for months.

Amid Tuesday night’s Vanderpump Rules season 10 finale, which featured the dramatic moments that followed the reveal of Sandoval and Raquel’s romance, Schwartz was seen telling Ariana he cares about her while complaining about the “anxiety and backlash” he received as a result of his business partner‘s misdeeds.

And as the message was shared, via screenshot, on the show, Schwartz took to his Instagram Story, where he shared an odd video of himself holding what appeared to be a baby kangaroo in a pouch, claiming that he adopted a new “dog.”

“Well, I finally did it. I adopted another dog. Ladies and gentlemen, meet TJ,” he stated. “TJ, TJ, give me a kiss.”

“I think it’s a dog,” he added. “TJ [are] you a dog?”

As for Schwartz’s text, a Pump Rules fan page on Instagram shared the message with their fans and followers.

“Morning Ariana. Hopefully you are resting at least a little easier now. I’m not here to make excuses for Tom or justify his actions. He confided in me and I told him what he needed to do, sit you down and tell you everything out of respect for everything you guys have built together,” Schwartz began.

But as viewers now know, Sandoval didn’t tell Ariana a thing. Instead, she discovered his affair with Raquel when she found a NSFW video of her now-ex-best friend on his phone.

“I guess he was about to tell you and this all blew up [and] you got humiliated in the worst way possible. I’m not gonna try to tell his story,” Schwartz continued.

Then, after suggesting Ariana treat herself to a decadent vacation and “turn [her] phone off,” Schwartz told his former friend that he hoped she didn’t “have too much ill will towards [him].”

“This whole situation is effed. I don’t wanna kick my guy when he’s down but my god the amount of anxiety and backlash I’m getting [because] of his actions are insane,” he revealed. “Anyways just know I care about you [and] know you are gonna be just fine.”

During an April appearance on Watch What Happens Live, Schwartz attempted to explain why he failed to tell Ariana about Sandoval and Raquel’s relationship.

“[Sandoval] did a good job of placating me, and also, I’m consumed with my own life, my own problems and he told me he has a game plan, he’s going to do the right thing, and then he just kinda continued to procrastinate,” Schwartz said. “I [was] being fed a narrative that he has broken up with Ariana or attempted to multiple times, many, many times, and he’s not happy. They’re not healthy. They’re not intimate.”

The three-part Vanderpump Rules season 10 reunion begins next Wednesday, May 24, at 9/8c on Bravo.
