Vanderpump Rules is currently airing its tenth season on Bravo, which has seen a spike in ratings after two dull seasons. A mid-season teaser for the ongoing season has now been released by Bravo, giving a glimpse of the explosive moments yet to feature in the show.
The trailer has been launched amid the cheating scandal of the show’s cast members, being called the ‘Scandoval.’ Earlier this month, reports of Tom Sandoval’s affair with co-star Raquel Leviss shocked the world, along with his girlfriend and fellow cast member Ariana Madix.
Vanderpump Rules Season 10 Midseason Trailer Shows Tom and Ariana’s Meeting After Cheating Scandal
The trailer shows the first look at the episodes shot after the scandal came to public light at the beginning of March. The footage begins with Scheana’s wedding. Katie and Ariana are seen searching for a space for their sandwich shop, Something About Her.
Meanwhile, Tom Schwartz, Katie’s estranged husband, is worried that the shop might open before his own restaurant, Schwartz & Sandy’s. The trailer then addresses the love triangle as Scheana tells Raquel: “I was the OG home wrecking whore of this group. And then came Lala. And now, here you are.” The latter giggles in response.
At different points, Raquel is seen kissing Schwartz and Oliver Saunders. Scheana then talks about the Scandoval affair and says, “This is a full-blown love affair.” Meanwhile, Sandoval tells Ariana, “I wish we both would have tried harder,” to which she replies, “You don’t deserve one f***ing tear of mine.”
On the other hand, Raquel says, “I don’t f***ing regret our relationship.” There are then shots of the cast members crying, hugging each other, and screaming as Lisa Vanderpump says, “You will learn how to deal with your problems.”
The Sandoval-Raquel Affair was Exposed on March 3
Sandoval and Ariana had been together for nine years before she found out that her boyfriend was having a months-long affair with Raquel. She reportedly saw inappropriate messages being exchanged between the two and decided to break up with her boyfriend.
Sandoval posted a public apology for Ariana on his Instagram on March 7 and wrote, “Most of all, I want to apologize to Ariana. I 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.”
“I am beyond sad that it ended the way it did. The choices I made hurt so many people. I acted in a way that clashes with who and how I want to be. I will continue to reflect and work on myself. I have work to do. I always have, and I always will,” he added.
A day later, Raquel also released a statement: “I want to apologize for my actions and my choices foremost to Ariana, and to my friends and the fans so invested in our relationships. There is no excuse, I am not a victim and I must own my actions and I deeply regret hurting Ariana.”
