Tom Sandoval has finally issued his apology to Ariana Madix, detailing the regret and “dishonor” of a great woman.
Tom Sandoval Admits He Was Selfish
The apology comes almost a whole week after news dropped that the Tom Sandoval and The Most Extras frontman was carrying on a half-a-year affair with his Vanderpump Rules co-star Raquel Leviss.
He shared his apology via his Instagram which has almost one million followers. “I want to first and foremost apologize to everyone I’ve hurt through this process,” began the lengthy apology. “Most of all, I want to apologize to Ariana,” he writes finally after a former apology that didn’t mentions Ariana at all.
“I made mistakes, I was selfish, and made reckless decisions that hurt somebody I love. No one deserves to feel that pain so traumatically and publicly,” admits the reality star. “I can only imagine how devastating this has been for Ariana and everyone around us. I feel really horrible about that.”

The hopeful rock star straight-up admitted that he messed up big time and treated Ariana like hot garbage. “My biggest regret is that I dishonored Ariana. I never meant to disappoint so many people, including our loving families and friends.”
It was hard to not notice that Tom is speaking in the past tense. “My love for Ariana was stronger than any camera could ever have captured. Some of our best times together were never filmed. The same goes for some of our biggest struggles.”
He likely realizes he has lost any chance of fixing things OR, the rumors are true, and he has fully moved on and is in love with his “Bambi-eyed” co-star Raquel. Regardless, Tom admits that things certainly could have gone down differently.
Tom Sandoval Sees That He ‘Tarnished’ What Was Good
The 39-year-old’s main regret it seems is that he didn’t end his relationship with Ariana with respect, not that he hooked up with Raquel who is eleven years younger than him. “I wish things happened in a different order and our relationship was not severely tarnished, and that it ended with the same respect with for her that it began with. I owed Ariana better.”
He admits that he is mourning the loss of the relationship and ended his post by saying:
“I am beyond sad that it ended the way it did. The choices I made hurt so many people. I acted in a way that clashes with who and how I want to be. I will continue to reflect and work on myself. I have work to do. I always have, and I always will.”
As for Ariana, she is yet to speak out but that is okay because he co-stars are her mouthpiece right now. The most vocal of the bunch coming to Ariana’s defense is Lala Kent who seems to go live at least once a day since the news broke.
Kristen Doute has religiously accused Tom of cheating on her with Ariana since at least season 3 of Vanderpump Rules. She is relishing in this moment and also likes to go live on Instagram to slam Tom and Raquel and anyone else who was involved.
