Vanderpump Rules

Sandoval gained his most widespread recognition in 2013 when he began appearing as part of the cast of the Bravo reality television series "Vanderpump Rules." A spinoff of "The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills," the show follows businesswoman and actress Lisa Vanderpump, as well as the staff of her various restaurants and bars in the Los Angeles area of California. The first season of "Vanderpump Rules" centered on new server Scheana and her relationships with established employees, among them Sandoval, who tended bar at SUR. Other original cast members include Kristen Doute, Katie Maloney, Jax Taylor, and Stassi Schroeder. In the second season, Ariana Madix and Kristina Kelly were introduced as recurring cast members; Madix became a main cast member starting the next season. A big hit for Bravo, "Vanderpump Rules" spawned two spinoffs: "Vanderpump Rules After Show" and "Vanderpump Rules: Jax and Brittany Take Kentucky."

On "Vanderpump Rules," Sandoval was shown launching the West Hollywood bar TomTom with Vanderpump and costar Tom Schwartz in 2018. Sandoval and Schwartz also opened the Hollywood bar Schwartz & Sandy's, which much of the show's tenth season was devoted to covering.

Personal Life

In 2013, Sandoval began a longterm romantic relationship with his fellow "Vanderpump Rules" cast mate Ariana Madix. The relationship ended acrimoniously in 2023 after Sandoval cheated on Madix with their costar Raquel Leviss.


In March 2023, it was revealed that Sandoval had been having an affair with Leviss for seven months. Madix discovered the affair after finding videos of the pair FaceTiming each other on Sandoval's phone. The scandal rocked the Vanderpump Rules fandom, and many fans were shocked and disappointed by Sandoval's actions.

Madix and Sandoval broke up shortly after the scandal broke, and they have not yet reconciled. Leviss, who was engaged to Sandoval's best friend, James Kennedy, also broke up with Kennedy as a result of the scandal.

The Scandoval scandal was a major storyline on the ninth season of Vanderpump Rules, and it is likely to continue to be a topic of discussion for fans of the show for some time to come.

Here are some additional details about the scandal:

  • The affair reportedly began in the summer of 2022.
  • Sandoval and Leviss reportedly met up in secret at hotels and other locations.
  • Madix was completely blindsided by the affair, and she was reportedly devastated.
  • Sandoval has apologized for his actions, but Madix has said that she is not sure if she can forgive him.
  • Leviss has also apologized to Madix, but Madix has said that she does not accept her apology.

Real Estate

In February 2019, Tom shelled out $2.07 million for a house in the LA suburb of Valley Village. In the wake of his breakup with Ariana Madix, Tom claimed to have offered to buy her out at a value of $3.1 million, an offer she apparently rejected.
