“I can’t give you too much…I think it’s going to be interesting," Lala Kent teased during "The Reading Room" live interview at Bravocon on Nov. 4. "Y’all are going to be torn. Yes, I told you all to go insane on Tom Sandoval, and now I’m telling you to kind of disengage.”

“It’s a lot," Tom said at BravoCon 2023 on Nov. 3 of the preview. "It’s really intense, per usual...but it’s really short.” 

At the same time, Sandoval also indicated there might be a surprise in store for fans in Season 11. 

"I’ll say something without saying something," he began. "There’s definitely something that you don’t see coming that happens, that’s not involved with me."

Besides Sandoval's relationship with Ariana, the strain on his friendship with Tom Schwartz is also expected to play a heavy role in the new season.

“Considering, I mean, I definitely put him through a lot," Sandoval said. "You know, [he] got a lot of residual hate just from me, you know what I mean?”

Sandoval also indicated their relationship had been troubled at the Vanderpump Rules panel at BravoCon 2023.

“I feel like it’s definitely gotten better," he explained of the friendship. "Obviously, we went through tough times because of me, and he dealt with a lot of residual negativity, and I really appreciate [him] sticking by.”

But, Sandoval also added that the BFFs were working through it. 

“And then everything I did, and, you know, I feel like we're stronger than ever,” Sandoval added. “We've always had a resilient friendship and a loving, caring friendship and yeah, we're in a good place.”

Fans will get to see the Toms work it out on the new season. 

“You see the journey on Vanderpump Rules," Lisa Vanderpump confirmed. "It wasn't that easy, was it?,” she said, prompting Sandoval to reply, "No, it wasn't. It's definitely the most strain we've ever had on our friendship, for sure.”
