Ariana Madix made plenty of shocking revelations about her ex-boyfriend Tom Sandoval while appearing on the Call Her Daddy podcast on Wednesday.
The scorned Vanderpump Rules star, 37, sat down with Alex Cooper and dished about her nine-year-long relationship with the bar owner, 39, which ended after his affair with co-star Raquel Leviss, 28, came to light in March.
Speaking of the affair she said: ‘They had sex in my guest room while I was sleeping in my own bed, that he and I went to bed in together, and then he left the bed and went to the guest room and f****d her.’
Wearing a white hoodie with the slogan that read ‘Born f*****g cool,’ Ariana addressed a number of other hot topics, including rumors about Raquel being pregnant and Tom cheating with other women.
‘Apparently there is something so wild that’s going to be revealed at the reunion, that could potentially have you guys not wanting to sign back up to be on the show,’ Cooper said, sharing that fans speculated it might have been a pregnancy announcement from Raquel.

Affair: Speaking of his, 39, affair with co-star Raquel Leviss, 28, she said: ‘They had sex in my guest room while I was sleeping in my own bed’
‘I don’t think so,’ Ariana replied. ‘I’ve talked to our show runners. I think I know what the deal is, but I’m not entirely sure.’
At one point Cooper inquired about what the former couple’s sex life was like, after Sandoval recently chalked up the affair to losing his mojo, and Madix revealed that it ‘waxed and waned at different points.’
‘In the beginning I was definitely struggling. I was very excited that someone was really into me. Because the relationship I was in previously… I was being criticized very heavily about my body, my personality, just everything.’
‘Our sex life waxed and waned at different points. I definitely think it got to the point sometimes where I just wanted that quality time so bad,’ she revealed, adding that at one point she felt ‘he’s not into me.’
She also shared that Tom would ‘complain about frequency of sex.’
‘It felt like he wanted to have sex, but I was like, “But do you want to have sex with me? Is it about me, or is it just about the act?”‘
Cooper asked whether Ariana knew if there was a night when Sandoval slept with both Raquel and her, to which Ariana said she did not know.
Cooper also touched on the fact that the affair took place following the death of Ariana’s grandmother.
‘When you were grieving your grandmother, isn’t that when Tom and Raquel apparently were like at your house, or something, having sex, potentially?’
‘Potentially. He has maintained that that’s not the case, but I don’t trust what he says,’ she replied.
Madix also revealed some things she’s learned after filming the reunion, including a text message that Raquel sent to Tom.
The message reportedly read along the lines, ‘I just talked to a mutual friend [I won’t name them] and they said that you should be honest with Ariana, maybe not so much about all the details like sleeping in the house together, but that she deserves to know about this. I love you, you got this.’
Madix — who described the last couple of months as a ‘rollercoaster’ — began the conversation by retelling the story of how she discovered Sandoval’s infidelity.
Ariana was at Tom’s concert and holding on to his phone while he performed, when she decided to go to the bathroom and check his messages. She revealed that there was nothing weird in his texts, however his camera roll was a different story.
Though Ariana did not share what the video was that she found on his camera roll, it gave her the confirmation that Sandoval was cheating with Raquel, whose behavior Ariana said ‘seemed sociopathic’ at times.

‘Essentially, yeah,’ Madix replied, sharing that the two did not sleep in the same room that night.
Cooper addressed the long standing rumor that Ariana and Tom were in an open relationship. ‘You and Tom were not in an open relationship. Why do you think that rumor started?’

She also shared that the duo got into couple’s therapy while he was in the middle of his affair, which she did not know, and that she isn’t really sure how many other women Tom cheated with.
She also said Sandoval brought Raquel to his home in St. Louis ‘more than once.’
‘So his family knew?’ Cooper asked.
‘It’s hard to say what exactly they knew, or when they knew. I think at one point they knew but they were definitely not condoning. And he was putting her up in a hotel,’ she replied. She also claimed that Sandoval was using other people’s credit cards to cover up the affair.

In another part of the conversation Ariana also touched on Tom’s claim that she would be suicidal if he broke up with her.
‘I said if we break up I’m probably going to quit the show, I will probably leave Los Angeles, I will probably deactivate my Instagram. And he found that to be very offensive.’
‘I was never saying that I was going to kill myself. I was saying that this life would be over for me, because I will go do something else.’
Despite her partner’s affair, Madix is keeping in high spirits, and had a very confident answer when Alex said that people might be thinking ‘”You lose him how you got him.”
‘I didn’t lose him, he lost me,’ Ariana replied with a smile on her face.
‘Do you think Tom misses you?’ Cooper asked in the second half of the podcast. ‘Yeah, I do,’ Ariana replied.
When asked if Tom is a ‘pathological liar’ Madix stated that clearly in the last nine months he has been.

However, Madix confirmed that he did indeed have sex with her but that she kept his secret in order to protect him.
In the series 10 finale of Vanderpump Rules which aired last Wednesday, Madix and Sandoval had an epic confrontation over his infidelity.
‘Do you want anything?’ Sandoval asked Madix, to which she replied: ‘For you to die.’
‘I regret every moment that I stood up for you, defended you, supported you. You’re worth nothing and I want you to feel that deep in your soul,’ she told him during the brutal conversation.
‘I want you to hear those words coming from the mouth of the woman that f*****g stood by you and loved you and was ready to build the rest of my life around you.’
