Ariana Madix is denying that Raquel Leviss believed the open relationship comment Tom Sandoval fed her. In the uncensored Vanderpump Rules reunion on Peacock, Scheana Shay dropped a bomb. She shared that Sandoval told Raquel, back in April 2022, that he and Madix were in an open relationship. Clearly, this was false but now the question is if Leviss believed it. Ariana is throwing her two cents into the conversation. Read on to see what she had to say.

Ariana Madix Denies Raquel Believed Open Relationship Comment

When Raquel Leviss and Tom Sandoval were hanging out a little too much during Season 10, rumors flew. One of them was that he and Ariana Madix had an open relationship. This came after James Kennedy’s girlfriend saw them dancing alone at The Abbey and told some of the cast. Katie Maloney was someone she shared it with and she explained that Sandoval and Madix don’t really have any rules in their relationship. That meant they do not keep tabs on each other like other couples. It was interpreted as they had an open relationship which they do not and even Ariana said she is not cool enough for that.

Scheana Shay broke the news about the open relationship comment right after the affair news broke. Of course, Ariana Madix was livid. More so, she vehemently denied this and said that they never had anything remotely close to that. After this bomb was dropped during the uncensored part of the reunion, Page Six posted it to their Instagram. One fan said felt that maybe Raquel should be cut some slack: “Could it be that he manipulated Raquel the same way that Ariana has claimed he manipulated her for years,” they started.

They went on to say: “I mean why wouldn’t Raquel believe him if that’s what he told her. He was taking her on vacations, to meet his parents, they even spent Christmas together.” Ariana Madix immediately clapped back to debunk this rumor. Moreover, Ariana wanted it to be known that Raquel did not believe that they were in an open relationship. Finally, Tom Sandoval was not just with Raquel for the holidays but also with Ariana as he split his time. So, there are a lot of blurred lines viewers are not completely seeing.

Raquel Knew What She Was Doing

It seems apparent that Raquel Leviss knew exactly what she was doing when she hooked up with Tom Sandoval. She even noted in the finale that she wanted to sleep with someone that she actually loved. More so, she claimed she had never done that before so did that mean she never loved James? Her story will be told soon enough on the reunion as she and Scheana Shay has to be separated for legal reasons. Maybe Raquel will give Ariana Madix a reason as to why she did what she did. It does not seem like Madix will accept anything from her former bestie at this point.
