Tom Sandoval has revealed some of what viewers didn’t see on the Vanderpump Rules reunion show. After part 3 of the season 4 reunion show aired, E! News posted an interview with Tom regarding the reunion. During the interview, Tom revealed that his ex, Kristen Doute, actually cheated on him with his best friend during their relationship. Tom also revealed the reason why he believes Kristen, Stassi Schroeder, Katie Maloney, and Scheana Marie, formed an alliance for the reunion show.
On part 3 of the reunion show, Kristen’s most recent ex, James Kennedy, accused her of cheating on him during their relationship, an accusation that Tom had also leveled at Kristen on part 1 of the special. Kristen denied her ex-boyfriend’s accusations, which made Tom very angry.
Tom addressed some people’s criticism that he’s holding on to anger when it comes to Kristen. Tom explained that he was so angry at Kristen during the reunion show because he had found out just two weeks prior that she had cheated on him with his best friend and former band mate.
“I’ve gotten a lot of flack about the whole Kristen thing. They basically cut right to me being amped up about Kristen and that was because two weeks prior to shooting the reunion, I found out that Kristen had slept with my best friend and former band mate while we were together. It of course makes me look like I’m keeping on and keeping on but it was something James said and she denied it.”
Tom Sandoval and Kristen Doute dated for almost six years. They even lived together. When Vanderpump Rules began, they were shown as being very committed and loving towards one another. But then on the second season, Tom and Kristen’s relationship came to an explosive end when it came out that Kristen cheated on him twice with Jax Taylor. When Kristen finally admitted what Tom had suspected, he physically attacked Jax so hard that Jax had blood streaming down his face.
Tom then began a relationship with Ariana Madix. Kristen, who prior to being dumped by Tom had already suspected him of cheating on her with Ariana, took Tom’s new relationship with Ariana as proof that they did start something behind her back. While Tom and Ariana eventually admitted that they kissed once when they were both in Las Vegas, they have maintained that they didn’t begin their relationship until after Tom had ended things with Kristen.
On the reunion show, Kristen accused Tom and Ariana of having an “emotional affair.” To E! News, Tom called Kristen’s accusation “completely impossible” and “ridiculous.”
Tom also revealed that the day prior to the reunion filming, Kristen, Stassi Schroeder, Katie Maloney, and Scheana Marie hung out with one another. Tom, pointing out that those women did not disagree with one another for the entirety of the reunion filming, believes that they formed an alliance for the reunion.
“We’re in those chairs for a total of nine and a half hours. In that entire time, not a single time did Stassi, Scheana, Katie or Kristen have a single disagreement with each other. Anytime anything was said about any one of them, you had to talk to at least two of them. They met the day before and hung out so obviously they had some sort of alliance or agreement or whatever.”
The friendship between Scheana, Stassi, Kristen, and Katie seems to going strong. The night the Vanderpump Rules finale episode aired, they, along with Jax’s girlfriend, Brittany Cartwright, all had dinner together.
Kristen, whose relationship with James Kennedy also ended badly, is now dating Brian Carter.
Tom Sandoval’s relationship with Ariana Madix also seems to be going well. Just two weeks ago, when someone accused Tom of cheating on Ariana, Ariana said on her Facebook page that “there’s nothing about Tom that should give [the cheating] impression that she completely trusts him.
