A Full-Fledged Breakdown Of "Scandoval!"

Ariana Madix and Tom Sandoval

So, Madix and Sandoval have been dating for nearly a decade, but that all came to a screeching end on Saturday, March 4th.

Sandoval has embarked on an amateur music career and started a band called, “Tom Sandoval & The Most Extras.”

He held a show at TomTom, which is a restaurant he co-owns with his ‘VPR’ co-star, Tom Schwartz.

Yes, lots of Toms and moving parts here!

Anyways, during his show, Sandoval’s phone reportedly fell out of his pocked and Madix was in the front row. She picked it up and discovered an explicit video of Leviss on his phone.

Ariana BLOCKS Both Tom & Raquel

Ariana Madix Storms Off During 'Intense' On-Camera Confrontation With Tom Sandoval

She has seemingly BLOCKED her ex-boyfriend and ex-BFF on Instagram. She also unfollowed Schwartz.

Madix deactivated her account last week once the news broke, but has since reinstated her account.

She has yet to make any kind of statement or post since the scandal broke, but it’s only a matter of time.

Both Sandoval and Leviss have issued “apologies,” I use that term loosely.

The “Schwartz & Sandy’s” co-owner first issued an “apology,” but didn’t even say “I’m Sorry” or mention Madix.

His first statement was asking fans to not take their hatred for him out on his businesses.

Obviously, this caused a TON of backlash and trash talking from fans, followers and viewers of “Vanderpump Rules.”

So, he did what any guilty reality TV star does… he issued another apology, this time mentioning Madix multiple times.

Tom Realized He Needed To Apologize To Ariana

“I want to first and foremost apologize to everyone I’ve hurt through this process. Most of all, I want to apologize to Ariana. 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,” his message began. “My biggest regret is that I dishonored Ariana. I’ve never meant to disappoint so many people, including our loving families and friends. 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. 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.

Leviss on the other hand issued two messages in one day.

Her “apology” reads, “I want to apologize for my actions and my choices to Ariana, my friends and the fans so invested in our relationships. There is no excuse, I am not a victim and must own my actions. I deeply regret hurting Ariana.”

Mind you, this “apology” came five days after the scandal broke!

She issued another note about her feelings for Sandoval.

“My feelings for Tom have always been sincere and born out of a loving friendship. Knowing how many people we hurt, I need to understand my choices and learn to make better ones. I need to take care of my health, work on self-growth and take time to be ok with being alone,” she wrote. “I care for Tom and I don’t want to label anything or predict what lies ahead. Right now I need to heal.”
