Tom Sandoval and Ariana Madix are going strong. The TomTom bar co-owner dropped an update about their relationship, sharing that the two are closer than ever after Ariana recently opened up about her sexuality and her ongoing battle with depression.
This season of Vanderpump Rules captured Ariana talking about her bisexuality for the first time during the show’s annual Pride episode. Though her revelation have recently been a hot topic among some of their fellow cast members, Tom says that her honesty has only strengthened their personal relationship.
“I think that the more you’re open and honest about who you are, I feel like it just makes you stronger in the end,” he told Us Weekly in a recent interview, also noting that he feels like they’re tighter than ever.
Tom also revealed that he and Ariana continue to support each other through any struggles with depression and anxiety, which she has been open about in recent months. “I feel like she deals with it the best she can, very well, we’re very much aware of these things and we just try to deal with it and be happy,” he said.
So what’s next for the happy Vanderpump Rules couple? “I don’t really have any relationship goals. I think maybe take a trip, just spend time with each other, do some fun activities, keep ourselves busy,” he said of their potential plans for the future.
For now, he says the two are simply enjoying their relationship. “We’re very close. We joke around on a regular basis,” he stated. “We have great debates, intelligent debates. We have a lot of respect for each other. It’s a positive thing.”
