Tom Schwartz has long been open about his desire to repair his friendship with Ariana Madix following her split from his best friend Tom Sandoval, but he hasn't exactly made much progress.

How to Watch

Watch Vanderpump Rules on Bravo Tuesdays at 8/7c and next day on Peacock. Catch up on the Bravo app.  

That much became clear during the Season 11 premiere of Vanderpump Rules on January 30 when Schwartz's repeated attempts to talk to Ariana at a group outing went unanswered. Not only that, but Ariana herself opened up in a confessional interview about why and how she's been so resistant to the idea of reconnecting with Schwartz. 

Schwartz also confided in James Kennedy, who, much to his surprise, has been rather forgiving in the aftermath of the drama from Vanderpump Rules Season 10. Get all the details on their conversation and everything both Schwartz and Ariana said about the current status of their friendship by scrolling below.

Why Ariana Madix Blocked Tom Schwartz

Scheana Shay was the one to ask Ariana where she stood with Schwartz on the Vanderpump Rules Season 11 premiere episode, and in responding, Ariana reminded her of the conversation she and Schwartz had on the Season 10 finale. As she put it, "After we talked that night, I was like, 'We're not gonna have a relationship, but I'm not actively saying f-ck off.'" 

That was then, though. Now, "I have him blocked on everything," Ariana said. Why? "He did Watch What Happens Live and he was like, 'People need to go and hug [Sandoval]." 

Schwartz, more specifically, said during an April appearance on Andy Cohen's talk show, "[Sandoval] knows he's a monster for what he did, [but] if you see him, maybe give him a hug even if he doesn't deserve it."

After that, Ariana "texted him and then blocked him."

Ariana Madix's Text to Tom Schwartz Before Blocking Him, Revealed

While Ariana noted she "[didn't] remember exactly what [she] said to Schwartz," although she "[didn't] think it was that bad," Schwartz still had the text on hand. And lucky for him, he found it rather funny.

According to Schwartz, Ariana's message, read, "F-ck you. Blocking your number. Go choke on Sandoval's dirty ass d-ck.'"

"Jesus," Schwartz said, laughing. "For the record, I've never checked on Sandoval's 'dirty ass d-ck.'"

Ariana and Schwartz's unresolved issues were also obvious during James' DJ gig at Tom Tom. As a result, Schwartz felt shut out from the rest of the group, which included Scheana, Katie Maloney, and  Lala Kent. As he put it in a confessional, "Ariana's got the wall up. She's an ice queen. I understand that she has this exalted status — queen Ariana, patron saint of scorned women — but until the ice melts with her, I just have a feeling it's gonna be really hard to make any inroads with the rest of the girls." 

Ariana, meanwhile, was overcome with emotion being back at Tom Tom for the first time since she and Sandoval broke up there. "I didn't expect to really feel all of this coming up right now," she explained. "You think that it's just a place, it's just a chair, it's a table, whatever, and I've sat at this table so many times, but now, that time is really just kind of taking over my memories of this place."
