You Won't Believe What Scheana Revealed About Her Current Friendship with Tom After "Tough Conversation[s]"

Vanderpump Rules' Scheana Shay gave a hilarious response when asked where she stands with Tom Sandoval today.

By Allison Crist

A preview for Vanderpump Rules Season 11, Episode 6 shows an emotional Scheana Shay grappling with the urge to forgive Tom Sandoval

How to Watch

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

More specifically, she tears up while talking to Lala Kent about feeling stuck between said urge and not wanting to upset Ariana Madix. Things only get further complicated, as Scheana reveals that she and Tom were once so close, he loaned her "several thousand dollars" when she was struggling during the pandemic

"I'm not saying I'm gonna be his best friend again. I'm not saying, 'Come over for f-cking dinner and let me paint your toenails white.' I'm struggling not forgiving this human who has been there for me," Scheana says while crying.

That was then, though. Does she feel the same way today? Find out by scrolling below.

Are Tom Sandoval and Scheana Shay friends today? 

In a recent interview with The Daily Dish, Scheana was asked where she stands with Tom today. Her response? "Sometimes far away," she said with a laugh. 

"You know, socially distant!" Scheana quipped before getting serious. "No, it was a long journey this season. And you will see every tough conversation I've had with him."

Those conversations didn't end when filming for Vanderpump Rules Season 11 did, though. Referencing the headlines that came out of BravoCon 2023 about Scheana hanging out in Tom's hotel room, she said, "The thing is, people saw that I was in his room at BravoCon, but what they didn't see was the conversation I had with him before I left his room where I told him to stop trashing my best friend in the press."

Rather than talking about Ariana, Scheana explained that she wants Tom to "just say, ‘You know what? I messed up. I'm sorry,’ and nothing else."

"There doesn't need to be a ‘but’ or a ‘because’ or a defense. Don't double down. Just, ‘I messed up. I'm sorry. I am working on myself. I know to never do that again,’ and move on," Scheana added. "And until he can do that, that's just not someone I can be close with."

How Tom Sandoval Feels About Scheana Shay Today

Tom, for his part, has been open on both Vanderpump Rules and the Vanderpump Rules After Show about his desire to reconcile with Scheana and their larger friend group. He even teared up while recapping a small exchange he had with Scheana at the airport before the cast trip to Lake Tahoe.

"That moment was so powerful for me," he said on the Vanderpump Rules After Show. "Like, it was so needed." 

"Just the casualness, the way Scheana's like, 'Hey, we're over here,' it was something that I never thought I would hear again," a teary-eyed Tom added. "I was like, 'Are you talking to me?' ... I just wasn't prepared for that. Like, I don't know. [It was] something I didn't see coming. But yeah, it's something I'll never forget."
