In the preview clip for the March 12 episode of Vanderpump Rules, Ariana opens up about her finances at the time of filming Season 11, adding that she was "not in a good place financially” before her breakup with Tom Sandoval in March 2023.

She then further adds (clip above) that she was “playing catch up” on her money situation, noting that most of her money went to Something About Her. In March 2023, Ariana revealed in the clip above that she was on her "last $2,000."

"The internet thinks I have made millions of dollars," she says in the clip above. "That is not true."

At the time she reached out to her agent and team to try and book her gigs. Well, since then, booking gigs, she has. Keep scrolling for more info on that.

Ariana Madix Commercials, Chicago, and Other Gigs: Career Update

Following her split from Sandoval, Ariana began to book gigs across mediums, including commercials (ranging from batteries to burgers to fashion campaigns and everything in between), appeared on Dancing with the Stars, starred in a TV movie, released a book and went on a subsequent tour, as well as is currently appearing in Chicago on Broadway.

She even worked with Shahs of Sunset's Nema Vand for one of the commercials she filmed back in 2023. “It’s a really cool thing when directing crosses over into the Bravo world,” Nema told Scheana Shay on her Scheananigans podcast last year (before his friendship with her became a point of drama on Season 11 of Vanderpump Rules). “And I’m out of the Bravo world now, but we had a client… [they] had a campaign with Ariana and when they found out I knew Ariana, we were part of the same group of friends, it was just, like, ‘Oh yeah, we want her to feel comfortable. We should do that.’ And it was a real worlds crossing… Ariana was amazing, by the way.”
