A little secret about Vanderpump Rules is that Ariana Madix wanted nothing to do with the show while the cast was filming season one. Now, Ariana is speaking out to The Daily Dish about the reason she didn’t want to step in-front of the cameras.
“This is what really frustrated me watching that whole uncensored thing, because I obviously wasn’t on it, but you had people like Kristen [Doute] saying, ‘Oh well that’s why she didn’t want to do the show, because of Tom [Sandoval].’ No. I didn’t want to do the show, because I was in a relationship with someone who was extremely emotionally and mentally abusive towards me.”
Ariana added that her boyfriend at the time despised Scheana Shay during this period of time. “[He] told me Scheana was a piece of sh*t, that I shouldn’t be friends with her, she’s fake. He literally hated every single thing about her and every single thing about reality television in general.”
Madix describes that period of time as “weird” and “tough” and says she’s just now getting comfortable with being on the show.
