Vanderpump Rules fans will get to see the “Scandoval” drama sooner than they thought!
In the days since news dropped that Tom Sandoval cheated on his longtime girlfriend and Pump Rules co-star Ariana Madix with fellow co-star Raquel Leviss, pretty much the entirety of the internet has been fixed on getting more details — and it looks like we may not have to wait too much longer!
The official Bravo Instagram account took to the photo sharing app Monday to confirm that cameras have “resumed filming” and “this story will be unfolding on camera.” Their announcement was accompanied by a shot of James Kennedy peering through a clapperboard titled “Scandoval,” in reference to Sandoval’s cheating scandal.

The shot also revealed the drama will be unfolding on season 10, which is currently airing — so that means we’ll be getting a look into all the drama before this season’s finale!
As we’ve previously covered, James made his disapproval over the whole situation known Friday, shortly after the affair came to light. He wrote at the time:
“Hope you all feel as sick as I do. This explains everything.”
Soon after that, other VPR cast members followed suit, with Lala Kent calling Tom and Rachel “disgusting,” before addressing the Schwartz & Sandy’s co-owner directly:
“Oh Sandoval… Your problem with me is I’m a little too real for your comfort. I’ve seen you for who you are for a long time, and you don’t like that. But, I think now is the time for you to shut the f**k up. I’m eatin good the next time I see you.”
Then, a day later, the 39-year-old came out and apologized to pretty much everyone EXCEPT Ariana — after fans threatened to boycott his restaurant. He wrote:
“Hey, I fully understand and deserve ur anger & disappointment towards me, but please leave Schwartz, my friends and family out of this situation… Schwartz specifically only found out about this very recently, and most definitely did not condone my actions. This was a very personal thing. Also, Schwartz & Sandy’s might have my name on it, but also there are 3 other partners and 20 employees, who especially rely on the restaurant for income for them and their families.”

As for his interactions with Ariana, the two met up in the El Lay home they used to share, in front of cameras, and while there’s not too much info regarding exactly what was said, a close source spilled:
“Ariana walked away from the conversation feeling like she was gaslit by Tom.”
