Kristen Doute did not hold back her thoughts on how the other Tom has been handling the Vanderpump Rules cheating scandal!
As we’ve been following, Ariana Madix ended her nine-year relationship with Tom Sandoval last week when she found out about his months-long affair with Raquel Leviss via an intimate video on his phone. While most of the cast has spoken out multiple times over the past week, Tom Schwartz — longtime best friend and business partner of Sandoval — has remained noticeably quiet about the whole situation. And now, he’s getting called out for it!
During an appearance on the Scheananigans podcast on Friday, the 40-year-old sat down with Lala Kent and Scheana Shay to talk about the Scandoval — well, as much as they could right now. Since the cameras are back up for season 10 of VPR, the group is limited on what they can say at this time. However, that isn’t stopping Kristen from speaking her mind since she’s no longer a cast member — and she had A LOT to say about Schwartz!
The former SUR waitress slammed the 40-year-old for sharing his true thoughts on the scandal behind closed doors but staying completely silent publicly, explaining:
“Tom Schwartz is a f**king p***y, and he needs to man up. Enough is enough. He’s just burying his head in the sand and thinks that things will just go away and things will happen. It’s like he can be honest with us in real-time and texting, ‘I don’t stand for this’ or ‘I really feel this way,’ but he doesn’t do anything about it.”
Damn! So behind closed doors he’s Team Ariana, too?
Ultimately, however, Kristen felt she couldn’t “believe” a word Schwartz has said privately because she hasn’t seen his “actions” to back it up. Lala noted on the podcast she could “co-sign” her opinions, adding:
“Words don’t mean s**t. Actions are everything.”
Schwartz works with Sandoval at two businesses — so he might not have said anything yet for the sake of maintaining a peaceful partnership in that regard. But as fans know, the TomTom co-owner tends to always have Sandoval’s back no matter what happens. And this is the same man who said he’d cover for Jax Taylor after his cheating scandal years ago.
So with that in mind, most viewers believed Schwartz’s hookup with Raquel was faked — and only to help keep the Sandoval/Raquel affair a secret. If that’s true, no one expects he’ll be blasting his pal’s actions anytime soon. In fact, when asked on Watch What Happens Live with Andy Cohen about the fan theory, Lisa Vanderpump suggested that he must have known about the affair, considering how close he is with Sandoval:
“I think they are so close. I mean, I’d have been less surprised if you said Schwartz and Sandy got together rather than Sandoval and Raquel. I think he sits on the fence so tight it’s up his ass … He tries to placate everything and play both sides.”
However, Sandoval himself shut down the rumor, claiming:
“Schwartz specifically only found out about this very recently, and most definitely did not condone my actions.”
Scheana, Lala, and Kristen didn’t mention whether Schwartz “knew” about the relationship between Raquel and Sandoval on the new episode. But Doute claimed on her podcast earlier this week that he “found out a month ago”:
“Schwartz and I were texting yesterday and he said that he told him to tell Ariana before it blew up in his face and humiliated the hell out of her.”
And he said absolutely nothing to Ariana!? Wow. Besties or not, that’s an awful thing to keep secret, especially since he was not only friends with Sandoval but close with Ariana too. What do YOU think, Perezcious readers? Should Schwartz say something about the scandal now? Are you buying the claim that he just found out about the affair? Sound OFF in the comments below.
