‘Vanderpump Rules’ Star Tom Sandoval Fires Back At Claims Of Acting ‘Self-Righteous,’ Slams Bullies Of Cast
Tom Sandoval is firing back at claims of being self-righteous.
Amid his ongoing feud with Vanderpump Rules co-star Jax Taylor, whom he’d previously been friends with for the past 20 years, Sandoval appeared on Scheana Marie’s podcast on Tuesday, March 31, where he addressed the poor treatment he’s received from certain people on the show.
“With a lot of these people, they try to be manipulative,” Sandoval said on the March 31 episode of Scheananigans. “They’re a**oles to people and they gang up and they’re bullies and they get eaten alive on social media about it.”
According to Sandoval, he believes that the bullies of the show typically receive a lot of backlash from Vanderpump Rules on social media. As fans have seen over the past couple of weeks, hundreds have spoken out against Lala Kent due to the way she’s been treating Raquel Leviss in recent weeks.
Taylor has also been accused of acting like a bully toward Sandoval, whom he has continuously spoken out against, despite how Sandoval went all out as his best man at his June 2019 wedding. He’s even taken aim at Sandoval’s six-year relationship with Ariana Madix by suggesting that their romance isn’t real and pointing out that Madix has publicly said she doesn’t want to marry or have kids with her boyfriend.
Sandoval went on to say that after seeing the backlash they’re receiving on social media, the bullies of Vanderpump Rules get angry at the individuals they targeted and start to act as if the hatred they’re getting is the fault of their victim.
“And then they start thinking, ‘Oh, you just think you’re better than everybody or you’re so self-righteous or whatever.’ When really it’s like, why don’t you just be a better person instead of trying to like, knock other people down or make them look bad?” he wondered.
Sandoval also said his co-stars should be more respectful and passionate about one another.
As The Inquisitr previously reported, Taylor most recently lashed out at Sandoval during an interview with Entertainment Tonight last month. At the time, he said that while Sandoval did do a good job as the best man at his wedding, he was only doing so because he knew it would be seen on the show.
“I would try too if I looked dumb and then, all of [a] sudden, I’m at a wedding,” he explained, following up by labeling Sandoval as an “actor.”
