Tom Sandoval’s Business Partner Addresses Losing Ariana Madix and 'Scandoval' Backlash as Tom Shares Pic of Schwartz & Sandy's as it Remains Packed


Greg Morris, an owner of Tom Sandoval and Tom Schwartz‘s bar, Schwartz & Sandy’s, is heartbroken over the loss of Ariana Madix at his bar.

As the Vanderpump Rules star keeps her distance from the venue after splitting from Sandoval, who had a months-long affair with her now-ex-best friend, Raquel Leviss, Greg admitted that Ariana did more at the venue than Tom as he reacted to backlash from “Scandoval” and Sandoval insisted the bar remains packed, despite reports.

“[Schwartz & Sandy’s] didn’t have room tonight! But a good problem,” Sandoval told fans and followers on his Instagram Story on Sunday, June 11, tagging himself at his other bar, TomTom.

Around the same time, The Bravo Mom on TikTok shared a series of videos of an interview she did with Greg, in which he admitted that he’ll miss having Ariana around.

“The thing that I think makes us probably the most sad is that Ariana was the best partner we never had. She was amazing. She supported this place. She was here all the time. She did so much more than Tom did and she was such an integrated part of this place for us that we really felt like when that happened, we lost her,” he explained.

And when The Bravo Mom asked Greg if he’d “rather have her than Tom,” he confirmed, “Yes, very much so.”

“That was really a sad thing so her and her projects and everything that’s going for her, we’re so happy for her,” he continued. “I want to see her thrive and succeed because she’s a good person. I can’t wait until [she and Katie Maloney] open up their sandwich shop. I’m gonna go there and I’m gonna support. She supported me and I wanna do the same thing for her because I think that she deserves it and it’s a really rotten thing to have happen on a national level like that.”

In another video, Greg spoke of the hate he’s received as a result of “Scandoval.”

“On a daily basis, it’s ugly,” he shared. “Text messages, emails, voicemails, DMs are so so nasty and so aggressive towards us who have done nothing and didn’t condone it, didn’t know about it. We didn’t see any of that stuff happening. We’re just as disgusted and appalled by it as everybody else and just sad that we’re taking the brunt of it.

And in a third, Greg said he was “kind of appalled by the whole thing” before sharing that he “can’t wait to see what they do.”

“And hopefully people will come back here and see what this place is all about and see that it’s not about one person. It’s really about so many other people that make this happen and let’s cut out the bad and focus on the good,” he added.

@thebravomom Greg is a great guy and you can tell how much his staff and business means to him. Wish him all the success. #vanderpumprules #schwartzandsandys #wwhl #foryou #arianamadix ♬ original sound – ✨The Bravo Mom✨

As Pump Rules fans may recall, Sandoval spotlighted Greg in his initial, Ariana-free apology, which he shared in early March, shortly after the news of his and Raquel’s affair first broke.

“Schwartz & Sandy’s might have my name on it, but also there are 3 other partners and 20 employees, who especially rely on the restaurant for income for them and their families. Just like TomTom, I’m a small part of a much bigger thing. Please direct ur anger towards me and not them. They did nothing wrong,” he begged. “Im so sorry that my partners, Greg, Brett, and Schwartz, and our employees have to suffer for my actions.”

The 11th season of Vanderpump Rules is expected to begin filming later this month.
