When speaking about her conversation with Lisa Vanderpump regarding the Toms' role working with her at Tom Tom, Ariana Madix opened up about how she felt about their encounter during Vanderpump Rules After Show (above).
"Literally as the words were coming out of my mouth, I realized that it was a completely pointless endeavor," Ariana said about the Vanderpump Rules season 7 finale moment. "She'll never take what I'm saying seriously; I'll always be her minion. What is the point? All I'm going to do is make her mad. She'll get vindictive; she'll try to get back at me for having this opinion and these concerns, so, you know what, screw it. I'll just go back to my f--king corner and stay out of it and live my life."
Now, Lisa is addressing that comment in an interview with Us Weekly, sharing, “In the after show when she said, ‘I’ll just be your f—-king minion,’ … I don’t look at any of my staff like minion. It’s very sad because I really value my staff and I think that shows in the show for seven years and I’ve had many, many staff working for me many years.”
Lisa then went on to address her working relationship with Tom Sandoval and Tom Schwartz, as well as Ariana voicing her concerns about the unfair way she felt they were being treated. “When she came to me I was totally surprised at that because I have a very jovial relationship with the Toms,” LVP added to Us Weekly. “You’ve seen on the show when they show up with dollar bills for the $50,000 or showed up drunk at Caesars. Tom was very much a bar man, not a manager. He was very much having fun with us and maybe Ariana misconstrued that.”
More Season 7 drama will be hashed out during Part 2 of the Vanderpump Rules reunion airing Monday at 9/8c. Preview below.
