Tom Sandoval gave his first interview since the cheating scandal with Raquel Leviss broke out on Howie Mandel Does Stuff podcast. During the conversation, he described their first kiss and discussed its aftermath.

He also addressed Ariana Madix, with whom he had an affair over nine years ago. He revealed that they were in a breakup two weeks before their affair was revealed at the start of March.

How Did Tom and Howie Meet?

Howie Mandel's podcast, Howie Mandel Does Stuff, recently aired an episode with Vanderpump Rules star Tom Sandoval. During the hour and 20 minute show, Howie managed to get Tom Sandoval to share his side of the story - including his cheating scandal with co-star Raquel Leviss.

The podcast began with some lighthearted banter, but the real fun began when Sandoval and Mandel joined forces for an engaging question/answer session. They met at a mutual friend's wedding, according to the podcast, and have been friends ever since.

Throughout the 80-minute episode of America's Got Talent, Mandel was constantly on the defensive and trying to defend Sandoval's claims. Yet he couldn't answer the initial question that brought them together: how did Sandoval and Mandel meet?

Tom Sandoval spoke with "Extra's" Billy Bush after the interview about the episode and what he took away from it. Additionally, he discussed his new makeup line which is part of an initiative with Stryx.

He also revealed his willingness to use social media as a way of connecting with his fans. Furthermore, he shared an amusing photo of himself and his son together on the platform.

Mandel was overshadowed by other guests on the podcast, though he did make some clever references. Fans quickly pointed out the main point of interest: its ability to woo its host Sandoval and Jackelyn Shultz - who is an avid fan of VPR.

Tom’s Cheating Scandal with Raquel Leviss

Vanderpump Rules fans have been left confused in recent weeks as Tom Sandoval and Ariana Madix's relationship fell apart following an alleged cheating scandal with co-star Raquel Leviss. While everyone remains uncertain of the true extent of Tom and Raquel's affair, rumors are swirling and people try to piece together what really transpired between them.

On Season 10 of VPR, viewers noticed Sandoval's business partner Tom Schwartz getting close to Leviss. Their attraction is evident on camera and they were even seen flirting at Katie Maloney's wedding to Tom's ex-wife Scheana Shay.

Rumors of their relationship picked up steam after Leviss shared a photo of herself with Schwartz on Instagram and fans began to speculate they might be dating. Their relationship is also causing much drama amongst other members of the cast.

Another person involved in the story is Lala Kent, a longtime friend of Tom and Sandoval. Recently she released a podcast episode called Give Them Lala which addressed the cheating scandal.

Lala has yet to fully express her emotions regarding the situation, but she's clearly disappointed in Sandoval and believes he has cheated on her with Leviss. Lala even went so far as to say she's currently receiving counseling due to an "unhealthy behavioral cycle."

Last month, when Tom and Ariana separated, rumors started swirling that they were having an affair. Given that Leviss and Sandoval are friends with Tom and Ariana, it's only natural that they should be included in any potential cheating allegations.

Some speculate that Leviss has been intentionally stirring up the rumors to divert attention away from her relationship with Sandoval. After all, she's been wearing matching lightning-bolt necklaces for months now.

Since TMZ first reported the scandal, fans have been left struggling to comprehend what transpired. Not only is this an upsetting situation for their friendship, but also potentially detrimental for their future on VPR.

Tom revealed his side of the story during an unexpected interview with Howie Mandel in late 2022. He acknowledged that he and Madix were headed for a breakup before their affair with Leviss became public knowledge, adding that they've been going to couples therapy since late 2022.

Ariana Madix’s Response to the Cheating Scandal

After TMZ reported Tom Sandoval had cheated on Ariana Madix with Raquel Leviss, fans and co-stars of Vanderpump Rules rallied behind her. They declared themselves #TeamAriana and posted numerous supportive posts online.

Last week, she took to Instagram to express her gratitude to family and friends for their support following the breakup. Additionally, she thanked former flame Kristen Doute, who has been an enormous source of strength during this trying time.

But the cheating scandal has left her feeling overwhelmed and uncertain of how to cope. On Wednesday, she shared an extended post on Instagram in which she apologized for feeling "devastated and broken" upon learning of the affair. Additionally, she thanked her followers for their support, thanking them especially for all the love and well-wishes from people she had never met before.

She described her family, friends and fans as her "beacon of hope," noting that they have been the best things that ever happened to her in life and she's immensely thankful for them. Additionally, she mentioned she will be traveling to Mexico next week with her family for a week-long vacation.

In addition to her Instagram post, she shared a video of herself with her sister on Facebook. In it, she described her sister as a "true friend" and expressed her appreciation for their love and support.

On Friday, she made a similar post in which she expressed her gratitude to family and friends for their support in the wake of the cheating scandal. Additionally, she expressed appreciation to her former flame Kristen who has been an unflagging supporter throughout this ordeal.

Madix, despite the cheating scandal, remains a main cast member on Vanderpump Rules. She has been part of the show since its third season and also has several film acting credits to her name. Additionally, Madix has worked as both bartender and chef at various restaurants including Vanderpump's Beverly Hills restaurant Villa Blanca.

Tom’s Confession on the Cheating Scandal

As the cheating scandal on Vanderpump Rules continues to make headlines, Tom Sandoval finally revealed his relationship with Raquel Leviss during an interview on Howie Mandel's podcast, Howie Mandel Does Stuff. Through this admission, Sandoval revealed the reason behind his affair and how it negatively impacted their friendship.

On the podcast, Sandoval revealed that he and Madix had struggled with their sexual life. He went on to mention how they began couples therapy in late 2022 for help.

Vanderpump Rules co-stars Taran Killam and Madix had been together for almost a decade when news of their alleged affair broke last month. While fans were left shocked and devastated, Sandoval hopes he and Madix can remain friends despite this painful development.

Madix, however, remains angry about her boyfriend's conduct. According to PEOPLE magazine, the 34-year-old was "blindsided" by his infidelity and left devastated.

She's angry that he cheated, yet also disappointed in how his actions have damaged their relationship. Additionally, she feels like his cheating has harmed his business.

One fan even called him a "pawn in this game" and asked why he kissed her to conceal the affair with Leviss. Later, he admitted that he was experiencing a midlife crisis and felt compelled to confess his tryst with her.

Following the scandal, many cast members from Vanderpump Rules voiced their opinions against Sandoval's actions. Lala Kent, Scheana Shay and Andy Cohen all condemned Sandoval's behavior while Ariana Madix expressed her own disappointment in the situation.

Tom and Ariana split up after these allegations were made against them; however, he has yet to move out of their home. Recently he was seen packing his car and going off on a concert date with his band members.

Before his affair with Leviss became public, Tom and Ariana appeared to be content together. In fact, they were photographed together at a cover-band show just one week prior to the cheating scandal breaking.
