As the Vanderpump Rules cast members explained why the venue is not yet open, Ariana, 38, also answered a question about whether she’d ever be friends with ex-boyfriend Tom Sandoval, 40, who infamously cheated on her with their friend and co-star Rachel Raquel” Leviss, 28, amid season 10, and teased the upcoming 11th season.
“It was weird. It was different. It was difficult and I’m glad that it’s behind me,” Ariana said of the new season in a video shared by Comments by Bravo on Instagram.
Then, as seen in a clip from All About the Real Housewives on Instagram, Ariana revealed that she and Sandoval are “actively trying to change the ownership” of the $2 million home they’re currently sharing.
As for a future friendship, Ariana confirmed, “We are not gonna be acquaintances or friends. No thanks.”
At another moment of the event, Katie responded to a question about Something About Her, which has yet to open, despite past reports suggesting it would be open by June.
“I’m so ready for sandwiches. We’re getting there,” Katie teased, as seen in a clip shared by a Pump Rules fans page on Instagram. “It’s just, it’s unimaginable like how many hoops you have to jump through and how much red tape there actually is, especially in West Hollywood. It’s like, oh, they’re sticklers so it’s just been inspection after inspection and things that pop up so it’s like, we’re right now getting a new water heater.”
“We’re getting a new water heater now,” Ariana repeated.
And that’s why she and Katie aren’t keeping their fans and followers in the loop with everything that goes down at their restaurant.
“We don’t give constant updates because the updates are boring as hell. No one really wants to hear about how we’re putting in some sort of two-inch thing inside the walk-in fridge,” she noted.
But, as she added of the shop, “It’s happening.”
Vanderpump Rules season 11 is set to premiere on Bravo in January 2024.
