“Vanderpump Rules” star Ariana Madix is breaking her silence by taking to social media to issue her own apology. The 34-year-old addressed her Instagram fans for the first time since Stassi Schroeder and Kristen Doute kicked off Bravo’s firing frenzy two weeks ago. Taking to her Instagram Story, Tom Sandoval‘s main squeeze acknowledged her silence in the middle of the drama and promised to do better in the future, especially when it comes to reconnecting with those closest to her.
The star, who went toe to toe with Jax Taylor at the “Pump Rules” reunion, posted a message to her followers on Monday, June 22. “If we are friends and we haven’t talked in a minute of i haven’t texted back, i love you and I’m sorry and I’m working on it,” Ariana Madix wrote. She showed that she’s keeping a positive attitude amid the drama by including a GIF of one of the Hanson brothers blowing kisses and dropping a joke.
“Didn’t intend to see taylor hanson blowing a kiss in gif form but I’m sure glad I did,” she laughed. Ariana Madix has been open about her struggle with mental health and even bonded with Lisa Vanderpump over this season after the two discussed their depression. Fans were floored with how Ariana Madix behaved on “Vanderpump Rules” reunion special when Jax Taylor began talking about his mental health issues. Shutting him down and barely letting him talk, she made a mockery out of the topic.
Not everyone was disappointed in Ariana Madix though. Some agreed with her actions, stating that Jax Taylor behaves the same way every season, and people look the other way instead of holding him to his actions. Viewers were floored when his wife, Brittany Cartwright, fiercely defended his behavior. They immediately called for his bride to be canceled after the third part of the “Vanderpump Rules” reunion. They weren’t the only ones that fans focused on during season eight’s virtual reunion. Many viewers trolled Stassi Schroeder and Kristen Doute while they were watching and poked fun at the two over this being their last appearance on the show.
