Katie Maloney on Tom Sandoval, Raquel Leviss affair: should give it a shot

Katie Maloney wants Raquel Leviss and Tom Sandoval to turn their months-long affair – as they cheated behind Ariana Madix – into an exclusive relationship.
While appearing on Watch What Happens Live With Andy Cohen on Wednesday, Maloney elaborated on her support for the Vanderpump Rules stars.
“I still think maybe they should give it a shot because they’ve blown up their lives. May as well,” she added.
When the affair, termed “Scandoval”, came to light in March 2023, the 36-year-old had a similar view.
She told host Andy Cohen at the time, “At this point, they better fall in love because who’s going to date them?”
While clarifying that she doesn’t “know what they’re doing” relationship-wise, the reality star had shared that she wasn’t shocked by the news that Tom Sandoval was entangled with Raquel Leviss. The details of the cheating did, however, shock her.
Tom Sandoval, 40, and Ariana Madix, 37, were in a nine-year relationship from 2014 to 2023. His months-long dalliance with the former pageant queen Raquel Leviss, 28, was discovered by Madix after she saw an explicit video of Leviss on her former boyfriend’s phone.
Back in 2020, Madix was planning to freeze her eggs. She also spoke to Sandoval about freezing embryos and asked him to stop drinking temporarily to make sure his “s–t sperm” did not get close to her eggs that she had “worked really hard to have harvested.”
The former bartender was able to freeze 26 eggs which were later confirmed by co-star Scheana Shay
to be “protected and frozen by themselves with none of that sperm.”
Just last week Tom Sandoval struggled to sell concert tickets despite a 2-for-1 ticket deal offer as viewers continued to boycott him. Video footage shows Tom Sandoval & the Most Extras performing to mostly vacant seats at The Space at Westbury Theater on Long Island.
Ariana Madix and Tom Sandoval began dating in 2014 after he and Kristen Doute broke up the same year. Doute had accused Sandoval of cheating on her with Madix, which he initially denied.
Madix and Sandoval have now too called it quits. However, the former couple still owns a $2 million house in Los Angeles, where they both still live.
Since then Madix seems to have moved on with her new personal trainer boyfriend Daniel Wai.
