Ariana Madix Hangs Out With Kristen Doute In The Aftermath of Tom Sandoval’s Affair

After the news of Tom Sandoval’s infidelity with his Vanderpump Rules costar Raquel Leviss surfaced, Ariana Madix connected with Kristen Doute

In the aftermath of the reality star’s separation from Tom Sandoval, Ariana Madix, and Kristen Doute are staying united.

After the reports surfaced on Friday alleging that Sandoval, 39, cheated with Raquel Leviss, leading to the split with Ariana, 37, she spent time with Kristen, 40, who is a series alum and Sandoval’s ex.

Kristen documented the moment by posting a video on her Instagram feed. “I stan Ariana. This is in real-time,” she said in the clip as Madix wrapped her arms around her former costar.

“I love you so much,” Kristen then told Ariana, before they shared a kiss. “I love you more than anything in the whole wide world, and I’ll kill people for you.”


Kristen and Stassi Schroeder were both fired from Vanderpump Rules following the emergence of past racially inappropriate behavior towards Faith Stowers.

Kristen Doute previously dated Sandoval and was unfaithful to him twice with, Jax Taylor. In a video shared on her Instagram Story on Friday — Kristen declared her support for “Team Ariana.”

“I don’t know why I feel like I need to make this clear, but there’s so many people right now wondering if this is making me happy,” she said in the clip. “You guys, Ariana and I have been really good friends for many, many years now so I am Team Ariana, all day, every day. That’s what’s up.”

Kristen Doute captioned the video: “Karma is indeed coming, so Raquel should just move home.”

Ariana became a cast member of Vanderpump Rules in 2013, and rumors of her infidelity with Sandoval emerged while he was still in a relationship with Kristen Doute. They eventually admitted to having kissed in the past.

On Wednesday, Ariana discovered the affair between Raquel and Sandoval. That same evening, she was attending a Los Angeles venue to support her then-boyfriend’s band, Tom Sandoval & the Most Extras.

While they were there, a sexually explicit selfie video from Raquel appeared on Tom’s cellphone. As Madix scrolled through his phone, she discovered their history of inappropriate text messages.

“This has been going on for upwards of 6 months — all the while, Tom was sleeping next to Ariana in bed,” one source told PEOPLE. “She was completely blindsided by this; devastated doesn’t even scratch the surface of how she feels.”

“This is someone she thought she knew; someone she planned to spend the rest of her life with. You can’t even put into words that betrayal,” the source added.

Earlier on Friday, another insider informed the outlet that Ariana and Sandoval had been experiencing issues “for some time.” However, discovering the alleged affair “was the last straw” for Ariana, who had been with Sandoval for nine years.

“She put up with a lot over the years, but she won’t sit back and be disrespected this way,” the insider said.

Ariana, Raquel, and Sandoval have not publicly commented on the allegations and could not be reached for a statement.

The ongoing drama is expected to unfold in season 10 of the Bravo series, currently airing, and cameras are actively capturing the events.

Vanderpump Rules airs Wednesdays at 9 p.m. ET on Bravo.
