Tom Sandoval Reveals What He’s “Looking Forward to” at the Vanderpump Rules Season 10 Reunion

Tom Schwartz, meanwhile, said he was “terrified” of what’s to come at the reunion.

By Allison Crist

Host Andy Cohen described the Vanderpump Rules Season 10 reunion as “a reunion that may be more explosive and dramatic than anything we’ve seen in the show’s 10-year history,” and that’s largely due to the cheating scandal involving Tom Sandoval and Raquel Leviss. However, caught up with Tom backstage at the reunion taping, and he revealed that he was actually eager for one major reason.

How to Watch

“I’m looking forward to just getting through it,” he shared. “I’m sure there will be a lot getting taken off my chest.”

At the same time, Tom also admitted to being “scared,” seeing as how he was about to come face-to-face with his castmates — including Lisa VanderpumpKatie MaloneyLala KentJames Kennedy, Scheana Shay, and Tom Schwartz — for the first time in a group setting since his affair with Raquel was exposed, subsequently ending his nine-year relationship with Ariana Madix. (Raquel will join the group separately from Scheana.)

Schwartz, for his part, also told he was “terrified” for the reunion. “It’s always, like, super intense, but relatively speaking, it just feels very heavy on my heart,” he said, adding that because he’s so close with Sandoval, the fallout from the affair has “been really intense” for him too. “Just being adjacent to it has been mentally and spiritually exhausting.”

Just how long has Schwartz been adjacent to the affair, though? That’s what Katie Maloney is hoping to find out at the reunion. As she told backstage, “Obviously, we want to find out from Tom Sandoval, from Raquel, from Tom Schwartz, when people started these things [and] when Tom Schwartz found out.”

Though Schwartz admitted he was nervous, he also said that he “[couldn’t] imagine” how Ariana was feeling, adding, “Hopefully she’s taking nice deep breaths and pampering herself.”

As it turns out, that’s exactly what Ariana did ahead of the reunion. “I mentally prepared today by getting my nails done, getting a sick outfit, cutting off my hair, bleaching it, and going to bed really early last night,” she told backstage before expressing her gratitude for those who have been there for her in the weeks since her breakup. “Everyone’s support has meant the absolute world to me. There were definitely days when I couldn’t eat, couldn’t sleep. I feel like literally the luckiest girl in the world because that was, I think, the lowest I’ve ever been in my life and everybody really just picked me back up.”
