“Vanderpump Rules“Fans were stunned by a TMZ report on March 3, the stars and the real couple Tom Sandoval And Ariana Madix separated after Sandoval allegedly cheated on her with another costar, Raquel Leviss.
Well done brain Andy Cohen began the March 6 episode of his Sirius XM show “Andy Cohen Live” by weighing in on the drama, and how it will affect the ongoing 10th season, which premiered February 8.
“First of all, when you look at the rest of the season of ‘Vanderpump Rules’ with the overlay of knowing that Raquel and Sandoval – what happened with them, and what was maybe happening then – it’s is really shocking,” Cohen said. “Even Wednesday night’s episode, you’re not going to believe it. Watching it with that overlay…there’s a moment between Ariana and Raquel where you see where their friendship is, which is good, which you won’t believe not.
Cohen also said there is an impending reunion that will inevitably be emotionally charged.
“There are about 10 more [episodes] go to the meeting,” he said. “Now we’re shooting the reunion in about two weeks. It’s a meeting that’s going to be… I clench my back.
Cohen also confirmed rumors that Bravo cameras were rolling over the weekend to capture the fallout from the breakup and its impact on the cast.
Cohen also noted that he recently had Leviss and co-star Scheana Shay on his late-night show “Watch What Happens Live.” The trio played a game in which they chose which of the Toms on the show — Sandoval or costar Tom Schwartz — was more appealing. One of Leviss’ storylines this season centers around her flirting with new single Schwartz, so both Cohen and Shay were surprised when Raquel picked Sandoval as her preference.
“Scheana said to Raquel, ‘You know, I only picked Sandoval because I knew you were going to pick Schwartz.’ And Raquel said, ‘Sandoval has abs’ and kind of shrugged, so that was interesting,” Cohen said.
