Ariana Madix Has Starred on ‘Vanderpump Rules’ Since Season 3

Though fans were introduced to the Bravolebrity during season 1 of VPR when she was working as a bartender at Lisa Vanderpump’s restaurant, Villa Blanca, and was regularly featured throughout season 2, Ariana didn’t join the popular reality series as a full-time cast member until season 3. She has since starred on the show – which is currently in its 11th season – alongside now ex-boyfriend Tom.

Tom’s seven-month affair with Rachel was exposed in March 2023. After that, Ariana received a flood of public support following her partner’s betrayal after nine years together.

What Was Ariana Madix’s Financial State Prior to Her Split From Tom Sandoval?

The Florida native revealed in the March 12, 2024, episode of Vanderpump Rules that she was nearly broke when she discovered his cheating scandal.

“I remember emailing my agent and my manager and being, like, ‘Guys, let’s really start trying to do some ​s–t​ because I am not in a good place financially,” she told a group of her female costars.

Ariana attributed her lack of funds to purchasing a house with Tom in 2019, followed by investing ​in opening a sandwich shop with pal Katie Maloney.

“When I first started making decent money, we decided we wanted to buy a house. Then I was playing catchup all the way up until Katie and I found a great location for our sandwich shop. Then, a bunch of my money went toward that,” she continued, referring to the yet-to-open Something About Her.

“And now, I was at a point where in March (2023), I was literally on my last$2,000, I’m not kidding,” Ariana revealed.

That was followed by a series of commercial endorsements, as the reality star appeared in ad campaigns for Bic razors and Uber One. She also landed partnerships with Bloomingdale’s, Lay’s potato chips, Joyburst energy drinks and Bellesa sex toys.

Ariana gained a wider national audience when she became a cast member on season 32 of Dancing With the Stars. Not only did she make it all the way to the finals, her talent helped the Bravolebrity become a Broadway star.

She landed the role of Roxie Hart in the production of Chicago. She made her Broadway debut on January 29, 2024, as several of her VPR costars were on hand to help her celebrate. Ariana is scheduled to remain in the role through March 24, 2024.

What Is the Status of Ariana Madix’s Sandwich Shop Opening?

Something About Her was supposed to open in the summer of 2023, but has been pushed back indefinitely due to a series of permitting problems and other issues at their West Hollywood location.

That hasn’t stopped Ariana and Katie from making money on the venture. The ladies revealed during the Vanderpump Rules season 10 reunion that they made $200,000 from launching a line of merchandise, including T-shirts and sweatshirts.

“People were saying, ‘How can we support?’ So, we launched it early,” Ariana told host Andy Cohen.
