After admitting that he felt “bullied” into inviting Sandoval to his big day after the two of them suffered a falling out weeks prior due to Sandoval’s confrontation regarding Taylor’s former pastor, the Vanderpump Rules star said he had a “gut instinct” that Sandvaol and Madix shouldn’t be included in his wedding during a conversation with Hollywood Life on March 19.
According to Taylor, he believes Sandoval did a good job as his best man during his and Cartwright’s nuptials, but that doesn’t mean he was happy to have him at the event.
“He did a great job. But, he’s done a lot that people don’t see and it pisses me off,” Taylor admitted during the interview. “I wish I stuck with my gut instinct and disinvited them. There are some things that Tom does that are below the belt and things you just don’t do to a friend.”
As Taylor and Sandoval remain estranged, Cartwright and Madix have maintained their friendship.
During her own interview with Hollywood Life, Cartwright explained that when it comes to her hangups with Sandoval, she doesn’t let the drama between him and Taylor get in the way of her friendship with Madix.
“He did do a lot on the wedding day, and it was cute how he’d run around and help us,” she explained. “I thought it was very nice. I love Ariana to pieces, so we try to keep Jax and Tom’s thing separate.”
While Taylor may not be enjoying spending time with Sandoval any longer, he told Hollywood Life that he doesn’t necessarily dislike his former best friend. Instead, he simply believes that he is no longer in a place in his life where a friendship with Sandoval makes sense.
“I don’t dislike him — I just choose to not hang out with him anymore. I’m at a different point in my life,” he explained.
Prior to their season eight falling out, Taylor and Sandoval had been friends for over a decade.
During an interview with Entertainment Tonight weeks ago, Sandoval admitted that he is “not a fan” of Taylor following their wedding feud before adding that things have been really tough in their relationship.
“It’s really tough, it’s really tough with him,” he said. “It’s really tough to get him to see actual reality instead of his warped sort of like propaganda reality.”
To see more of Taylor, Sandoval, and their co-stars, don’t miss new episodes of Vanderpump Rules season eight on Tuesday nights at 9 p.m. on Bravo.
