Ariana Madix reacted to Raquel “Rachel” Levissupcoming podcast, Rachel Goes Rogue, while appearing on Watch What Happens Live on Sunday night.

In addition to teasing the 11th season of Vanderpump Rules, saying Scheana Shay, 38, is the “biggest pot-stirrer” and suggesting Tom Schwartz, 40, is the “biggest flip-flopper,” Ariana, 38, revealed if she misses her friendship with Schwartz, discussed the fate of her shared home with Tom Sandoval, 41, and more.

“Do your thing, girl,” Ariana exclaimed when asked about Raquel’s podcast on the December 10 episode of WWHL.

Andy Cohen, 55, then asked, “Would you ever appear on it?” In response, Ariana suggested she would not, saying, “What do you think?”

As for where she stands with Schwartz, Ariana confirmed, “We don’t have a friendship,” and she said, “No,” when asked if she misses him.

“We’re cordial,” she clarified.

As Pump Rules fans will recall, Ariana previously said that she does not want to be friends with anyone who remained close to Sandoval since their split. However, on WWHL, she seemed to suggest she’s softened to the idea.

“My feeling is that I will never tell anyone else what to do or who to be with but I will make sure that I’m behaving in a way that makes me feel comfortable,” she explained. “So if I feel uncomfortable with how someone is moving in regard to that, I will just remove myself.”

In the months since Sandoval was caught cheating on her with Raquel, 29, he and Ariana have maintained ownership of their $2 million home. But in recent weeks, she’s been staying elsewhere.

“During the time that I’ve been on Dancing With the Stars and preparing for it, I, for the most part, have been in an Airbnb with my dog and my cat and some of my things, but I regularly go back and forth, and I’m working on the situation with the ownership of the house. I would love for that to be resolved quickly,” Ariana explained, adding, “So if Joe Weiner could get back to my lawyer that’d be great.”

She then said that because she and Sandoval own their home “equally,” they have to agree on what they’ll do with the property in the future.

“Whatever happens with it has to be agreed upon between both owners, hence the issue. I wanna sell it. He does not,” Ariana revealed, confirming she’d love Sandoval to buy her out of her half.

Ariana also noted that she and Sandoval do not speak when she returns home, nor did she watch her ex on Special Forces.

During a game of superlatives with the Pump Rules cast, Ariana revealed Lala Kent, 33, “cries most,” Scheana is the “biggest pot stirrer,” and said James Kennedy, 31, talks behind people’s backs the most on season 11 before admitting, “I don’t know.”

As for the rest of the cast, Ariana said Brock Davies “cozied up the most to Sandoval,” named Katie Maloney, 36, as “most loyal,” and said Schwartz was the “biggest flip-flopper.”

She also said that “everyone was not drinking except for [her] and Katie” and suspected Sandoval was the most jealous of her time on DWTS.

Moving on to boyfriend Daniel Wai, who was seated in the audience, Ariana said she and her man have made their relationship official as she admitted he won’t be seen much on season 11.

“We have defined the relationship. We’re together and you won’t be seeing much of him next season,” she shared. “You might see him maybe like once or twice, but he lives here, and it’s not really his world, but he was a good sport with the FaceTimes and stuff.”

Also on WWHL, after Andy asked if “Scandoval” was the best thing that’s happened to her, Ariana made it clear that she was thrilled by the outcome.

“I think the universe just said, ‘Girl, you’re on the wrong path,’ and it shoved me over,” she noted.

Andy then asked, “Thank you, Tom Sandoval?” And Ariana replied, “Thank you, universe.”

Vanderpump Rules season 11 premieres next month on Bravo.
