By Allison Crist

Ariana Madix labeled Tom Sandoval a "dog murderer" on Vanderpump Rules Season 11, Episode 10 (which aired April 2) after detailing an incident in which her dog, Mya — who was at home with Tom at the time — got into her room and ingested food and other items that would eventually have to be surgically removed from her stomach for an apparent cost of $6,000

Tom didn't take kindly to Ariana's accusation on the episode, instead calling what happened an "accident." Now, he's sharing more from his side of the story on the Vanderpump Rules After Show

In fighting back against Ariana's claim that he's responsible for Mya getting into Ariana's room and eating her leftovers, Tom argued on the Vanderpump Rules After Show that the dog has always been known to ingest whatever and turn out fine regardless. As he put it, "Mya, by the way, eats everything. Like, I left paintballs on the floor and she ate f-cking orange paintballs."

"She ate paintballs and sh-t a perfect Italy country [shape] on the f-king couch — literally [the poop] looked just like Italy — [and] she survived that," Sandoval added before showing the Vanderpump Rules After Show cameras proof.

"See it? Italy," Sandoval concluded. "The thing about Mya, she’s definitely an artist."

Ariana had a different take on the matter. Reflecting on the incident, Ariana said on the Vanderpump Rules After Show, "My ex has, on numerous occasions, been almost more negligent than not when it comes to things like leaving doors open, doors unlocked, whatever. And he not only invaded my privacy by going into my room unauthorized and without my knowledge, but then he locked my dog in the room for three-plus hours."

"And the only reason that she got to the emergency vet is because Ann [Maddox, Tom's assistant] had heard her upstairs and let her out," Ariana continued. "Like, if I had a busier day and hadn’t come home when I’d come home, who knows what would’ve happened because nobody would’ve seen anything."

A producer then asked about her previous assertion that Sandoval is a "dog murderer," and she made an important clarification, calling him an "attempted dog murderer" instead.
