“People have been around each other more this year and I feel like people’s relationships have gone up and down in certain ways. There’s such a deep underlying love where we have this deep respect. I don’t talk to Ariana like… We work it out. We love each other,” he explained.

While Tom and Ariana did great within their relationship during the closures throughout Los Angeles, they definitely drank more than they are used to.
When asked about something negative he experienced in 2020, Tom said that he definitely increased his alcohol intake as he and Ariana remained confined to their Valley Village home.
“As far as bad things go, I drank a shitload of alcohol, tons of alcohol. We drank more this year than I have drank in two years. We weren’t even filming Vanderpump Rules!” he stated.
