Tom Sandoval Addresses Ariana Joining DWTS & Raquel's Status on Vanderpump Rules, Plus He Talks Relationship With Billie Lee, and Dream Collab With Adele

Tom Sandoval reacted to Ariana Madix joining the cast of Dancing With the Stars during an outing with Billie Lee on Wednesday.

As he shared how he believes his ex-girlfriend will do in the dancing competition, the Vanderpump Rules cast member explained his relationship with Billie, refused to answer questions about former mistress Raquel Leviss, and revealed what song he’d like to sing with Adele.

After enjoying a “great” spa day with Billie, Sandoval told TMZ on July 12 that if he were to have a collaboration with Adele, who recently shaded him during a Las Vegas performance, he’d love to sing one of actor Mark-Paul Gosselaar‘s songs from Saved By the Bell.

“I would do a rendition, a remake, of the Zack Attack song from Saved By the Bell,” he said as he began to sing and twirl on the sidewalk.

“Friends forever, you know we’ll always be friends cuz we will be friends forever,” he sang, before adding, “That’s how I’d do with Adele … I think she would like that.”

After then confirming that he and Billie are “just friends,” Sandoval admitted he has high hopes for how Ariana will fare on the upcoming 32nd season of Dancing With the Stars. In fact, after being asked to rank her chances of winning on a scale of 1 to 10, he ultimately gave her a 9.5.

“She’s with Derek Hough, too?” he asked. “I don’t want to jinx her, so I’ll just say a 9. I don’t want to say a 10, but I think she’s got a really good shot. I would definitely say 9, 9.5.”

Although Sandoval didn’t hesitate to chat about Ariana, he wouldn’t say how Raquel is doing amid her stint in a mental health treatment facility.

“I don’t know. You would have to ask her,” he said.

And he also wouldn’t say a word about her potential return for season 11.

“I don’t have any comment about that,” he noted.

While Raquel hasn’t been seen filming with her castmates yet, a Page Six report earlier this week claimed she’s expected to go into production soon.

“She wants to get as much money as she possibly can so she is playing hardball,” an insider shared of her negotiations.

Vanderpump Rules season 11 is expected to premiere on Bravo sometime later this year or early next year.
