Tom Sandoval, known for his appearances on the reality TV show “Vanderpump Rules”, has issued a public apology to his ex-girlfriend and co-star Ariana Madix. The apology came after Sandoval faced backlash for not including Madix in his previous statement on Instagram.
In the statement, Sandoval acknowledged his mistakes, apologized to Madix, and expressed regret for how their relationship ended. “I want to first and foremost apologize to everyone I’ve hurt through this process,” he said. “Most of all, I want to apologize to Ariana. I’ve 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.”
The actor was accused of cheating on Madix with their co-star Raquel Leviss. In a statement to “Entertainment Tonight” on Wednesday, Leviss also expressed her regret for her involvement with two of her “Vanderpump Rules” castmates. Leviss apologized to Madix for her affair with Madix’s former boyfriend, Tom Sandoval.
Leviss stated that she had no excuses and had to take responsibility for her actions. She wrote that she was reflecting on her choices, speaking to a counselor, and working on understanding her behavior patterns. She expressed that she deeply regretted hurting Madix and wished to make healthier choices in the future.
Sandoval had previously posted a statement asking people not to blame his friend and business partner, Tom Schwartz, for his actions. He mentioned that Schwartz only found out about the situation recently and did not condone his actions.
“Vanderpump Rules” host and producer Andy Cohen confirmed on his SiriusXM program “Andy Cohen Live” that cameras were capturing the drama and reactions of the cast members. Cohen stated that viewers could expect to see the situation play out in the show’s upcoming season.
