Ariana Madix has removed Vanderpump Rules from her Instagram bio amid rumors she’s moving on from the show. Around the same time, her ex Tom Sandoval (who cheated on her last season) got slammed on Saturday Night Live.

According to one rumor, the current cast might be transitioning to The Valley – except Ariana and Katie Maloney, who might be getting their own spinoff. If the report is true, Pump Rules will be featuring a new, younger cast of people who work at Lisa Vanderpump’s restaurants.

According to a fan on the Vanderpump Rules Reddit thread, Ariana has taken ‘Emmy nominated Pump Rules’ out of her Instagram bio.

Ariana now lists only Love Island USA, Something About Her, DFH Cocktails, her Single AF Cocktails book, and an item called “Concert Tour.”

An old screenshot of Ariana’s Instagram bio, taken last year following the cheating scandal, shows she did indeed have #PumpRules in her bio. Below is a screenshot that was shared by ET Online in March 2023.

Fans shared their reactions.

“After the way they treated her I hope she is done,” said one user. “I love that she is the new host of Love Island!”

“Good for her—she’s moving forward and upward with her life,” wrote another.

Other fans believe she’s being strategic.

“I think she and others are in contract negotiations,” said a viewer.

“[It’s] probably cuz they are due a pay increase if the show continues and their contracts are up so [the cast is] taking a stand and removing from their profiles to put pressure on Bravo,” suspected a different user.

Another user was critical of the move, accusing Ariana of “biting the hand that fed her.”

Meanwhile, Tom got slammed on Saturday Night Live.

In a clip shared by @queensofbravo on Instagram, a comedian listed her “posse” of “parasite[s].”

“Shout out to hookworm, botfly, that fish that swims up your pee stream, and my man, Tom Sandoval.”

The joke appears to be in reference to a joke James Kennedy made during the Vanderpump Rules season 13 reunion, where he referred to Tom as a “worm with a mustache.”

Vanderpump Rules airs Tuesday nights on Bravo at 8/7c.
