Tom Sandoval Has Feelings About All That Tom Tom Cocktail Drama with Pandora Vanderpump Sabo

One of the Vanderpump Rules Toms has thoughts about working with Lisa Vanderpump and her daughter.

The Toms Are Confused About Why Pandora Is in Charge of the Drinks at Tom Tom

As we're seeing this season on Vanderpump Rules, in the lead-up to Tom Tom's grand opening, there was some drama brewing. On the Season 7 premiere of the series, Tom Sandoval and Tom Schwartz  butted heads with Lisa Vanderpump on what she perceived to be the delay of putting together a cocktail menu and how she then enlisted Pandora Vanderpump Sabo to help out. It was a decision that didn't exactly please the Toms (clip above).

How to Watch

Pandora clapped back this week on Twitter about the questioning of her skills and liquor knowledge, writing, "Oh I haven’t bartended? That’s news to me. I’m also a Certified Specialist of Wine, [and] spirits [and] own a liquor company, and have created cocktails for over 15 magazines. Also, I worked alongside one of the best mixologists in the US. But keep making excuses!"

Now Sandoval has also issued a response on Twitter about the drama regarding who should create and conceive the cocktail menu — and the timeline he was working on to meet deadlines to get Tom Tom open on time.


"We [definitely] did not [wait long to give her the cocktail list], mind u this is still 2 months away from the opening [and] if u saw my [Instagram] Stories [you] would see us working [with] thousands of [dollars] of product: spices, juices, liqueurs from all over the world months leading up to this," he told a fan. "Also we 100 %[percent] sent Pandora numerous recipes, Lisa didn’t get em."

In the episode, Sandoval took issue with Pandora's bartending experience, saying, "So why is Pandora, who has never worked a bartending shift in her life, overseeing this cocktail list? I mean why do you even want to call it Tom Tom?"

And this week when a fan noted he was once a student of a cocktail tutorial on the show, he defended his skills, writing, "That was just to show us the PUMP cocktails to serve at SUR [because] the cocktail menus are different and Lisa wanted us to be able to make PUMP cocktails at SUR."
