Tom Sandoval and Ariana Madix got another roommate last summer when they invited Ariana's brother Jeremy Madix to come live with them after he moved to Los Angeles from the siblings' home state of Florida.
Though they say "two's a company, three's a crowd," Tom and Ariana enjoyed having Jeremy in their abode. "Well, it was actually kind of fun because I haven't lived with my brother since I was in high school," Ariana told The Daily Dish. "I left and went to college and moved to New York and then moved to L.A. So we had drifted apart really. Like, we would kind of keep in touch, but we're so close now because we finally are in some kind of proximity to each other, which is, like, a whole new world for me."
Tom said he also enjoyed having Jeremy around so he could have someone to "bro out pretty hard" with. "I'm more of a social person than Ariana is, so I'll go out more than she does. And I'd be like, 'Ariana, do you want to go?' And she'd be like, 'Hell no.' And I'd be like, 'Jeremy, are you ready?' And he's like, 'Yeah,'" Tom said of hanging with his bro. "And so it was cool just kind of showing him the ropes in L.A."
Tom, Ariana, Ariana's mom, and Jeremy look like one big, happy family.
Tom has also gifted Jeremy with hand-me-down clothes, as any good big bro would. But that was also to kind of help Tom, too. "So Tom has way too many clothes, and he has a kind of weird thing about getting rid of them, because I'll be like, 'You have three of the same shirt,'" Ariana said. "They all have some special place in your heart. But if you can give it to Jeremy, you feel like you might be able to see it again one day. And so you feel better about it."
Because when you have a wardrobe as fly as Tom's, it's not so easy to part with. "Yeah, I'll be like, 'You can't have this, but you can hang onto it. You can have it unless I need it back,' which I never do," Tom joked. "It helps with that separation anxiety."
Jeremy has since moved out of Tom and Ariana's place and moved in with his girlfriend, the Vanderpump Rules couple revealed. But they'll always have these very fashionable memories.
