Weeks after the Vanderpump Rules star, 41, stepped out with Victoria, 31, at the ChainFEST gourmet chain food festival in Los Angeles, where they were said to have appeared cozy and not left one another’s side, Sandoval surfaced on his Instagram Story, where he shared a loved up photo of the two of them.
On February 1, Sandoval reshared an image posted by Victoria on her own page, in which the two of them were seen smiling with their faces close together.
As Pump Rules fans may recall, Sandoval and Victoria, who was romantically linked to Leonardo DiCaprio back in 2016, first faced dating rumors in December, when they arrived together at ChainFEST — and posed for a happy pic with one another.
Although Sandoval and Victoria were said to have been inseparable at the event, an insider told Entertainment Tonight they were just friends at the time.
“Honestly, thinking about it, it kind of brings me back,” Sandoval admitted to E! News on January 31. “That was always her dream and I didn’t know if that was going to happen for her. I’d be really proud of her and would probably be emotional.”
“It feels great,” he said. “I did move out to L.A., like most people, to pursue acting and music. I was doing movies early on in my L.A. time and then obviously Vanderpump Rules happened. That juggernaut completely shifted me into reality TV. So, now it’s really cool to come back and do something like this. Film with a camera in my face when the stakes aren’t so high and my life isn’t crumbling.”
“I’m not opposed to [doing more acting],” Sandoval continued. “I really enjoyed it. It was great, it was the perfect time. It was great to put my energy into something like I did with Special Forces. Doing that was really nice to just focus on that.”
Also during his interview with E! News, Sandvaol admitted that when it comes to his and Ariana’s $2 million shared home in The Valley, he’s still not sure “what’s going on.”
“You’re going to obviously see that play out this season. We’ll figure it out,” he teased.
Vanderpump Rules season 11 airs Tuesdays at 8/7c on Bravo.
