We stan an honest man! Vanderpump Rules stars Ariana Madix and Tom Sandoval came to the studio to speak with Life & Style exclusively — and spill a little tea, of course. Believe it or not, the 36-year-old Bravo TV star admitted to his girlfriend, 34, that he’d once snooped through her cell phone … and we caught it all on camera.
“Have you ever snooped through my phone?” Ariana asked her boyfriend during our game, Goss or Sauce. Tom seemed hesitant to answer, but finally, he confessed to the deed. “Yes, I did,” he said reluctantly. “It’s been a long time, it’s been a very long time. It was, like, the beginning of our relationship and I immediately felt like the biggest piece of s—t.”
He continued, “I, like, hated it. And I don’t know why I did it. I don’t know why I did it. Yeah. It was stupid.” The blonde beauty, believe it or not, was a bit speechless over the admission. “Wow,” she said, hugging her man as he apologized. “I did not know that, I did not know that,” she revealed with a smile. “I had no idea.”
From there, she came clean about her own bout of sleuthing with Tom’s phone. “I also looked through Tom’s phone when we first started dating,” she explained, before adding, “It was very boring.” LOL! Can’t really get better than that. “I was like, well, I’m an idiot,” she continued. “But, that’s good.”
“I found Ariana was asking Schwartz my shoe size or something,” the West Hollywood bar owner continued, referencing his BFF and costar Tom Schwartz. “To get me a gift. I felt, like, really bad. Those shoes you got me, the oil slick ones. Yeah, I felt like a total d—k.”
The bartender babe had a really sweet and visceral reaction to her boyfriend’s confession — and even looked a little teary-eyed. That’s what true communication in a relationship does, folks. It breeds understanding and forgiveness. We’re glad Ari and Tom have gotten past that initial phase in their relationship. Clearly, things are in a great enough place for them to collab on a cocktail book!
