Ariana Madix and Tom Sandoval spurred a Vanderpump Rules trend last year: home buying! The couple kicked off a real estate shopping spree amongst their group of friends when they purchased a $2 million modern farmhouse in the Valley, and were quickly followed by Brittany and Jax, Tom and Katie, and Kristen.
And then, the rumor mill started. While visiting Watch What Happens Live with Andy Cohen last year, Lala Kent was asked which of the cast's new homes was the nicest. “Um, I think Jax and Brittany,” Lala told Andy Cohen. “Their whole set up — it’s very homey, their backyard is amazing, I think they got like a stellar house. I mean, Tom and Ariana don’t have furniture.”
Luckily, Ariana cleared up this misconception when she stopped by WWHL last night and a viewer called in questioning whether their home was, in fact, empty. “Oh, no, we worked with a really amazing designer who helped us bring all of our ideas together,” said Ariana. “I’m thrilled and hopefully we’ll be doing a photo shoot to show people what we got. Yeah, I love it so much!” (Watch the video above to see more.)
While visiting Bravo HQ this week, Ariana dished more on her home décor state, telling us, “We’re fully furnished." Still, there are a few more things to get done: "One of the guest rooms, we want to make it a little bit more exciting, but it’s good.” She also added that she’s majorly focusing on the outdoor spaces, like her gorgeous backyard right now: “We’re kind of piecing things together right now because I have a lot of big ideas for the outdoor space, my most important thing.”
Ariana did admit, however, that her walls are bare! “The next step for us is our artwork, the walls,” she told BravoTV.com. “What to put on the walls? "We have a lot of artwork that we’ve collected over the years. With filming, you have to be able to clear it, so we have to figure out what we’re going to do with that. It’s either that or like when Scheana put canvases of herself up because she didn’t have to clear those. For real though…”
Um, now we know the story behind all those selfie canvases at Scheana's Marina del Rey apartment! For more Vanderpump Rules, be sure to tune in on Tuesdays at 9/8c.
