Things are NOT as good as gold between Scheana Shay and Tom Sandoval despite them both attending the Pump Rules cast trip to Lake Tahoe.
Scheana Shay is shutting down rumors that she has made amends with Tom Sandoval after they were spotted filming together this week while on a cast trip to Lake Tahoe.
The Vanderpump Rules OG made it clear that she has not forgiven Sandoval for cheating on her best friend Ariana Madix with co-star Raquel Leviss. Instead, Scheana Shay explains that filming with Sandoval is a necessary evil as they are both a part of the Pump Rules season 11 cast.
“Who said all is forgiven??” Scheana Shay tweeted in response to Queens of Bravo‘s post questioning if Sandoval’s voice could be heard in the background of Scheana’s Instagram Stories.
“Is that Sandoval’s voice? All is forgiven, I guess #pumprules,” the Bravo fan account asked on Twitter alongside a video clip from Scheana’s Instagram.
“We are all here for Lisa [Vanderpump],” Scheana added.
Scheana, Sandoval, Tom Schwartz, James Kennedy, Ally Lewber, Lala Kent, and Brock Daviesis have been in Lake Tahoe this week to celebrate Lisa’s latest restaurant, Wolf.
The 38-year-old went on to like a tweet that read: “They have to film with him. They are going to Lisa’s new restaurant.”
On Wednesday night, Scheana went on an Instagram rant with Lala after Bravo fans freaked out over her standing next to Sandoval during a group photo in Lake Tahoe.
“I don’t know why I feel the need to defend myself,” Scheana said of the Vanderpump Rules cast members taking a photo with a fan in Lake Tahoe. “We’re in a group. We’re all here. We hopped in a photo. You know what? I happened to be standing where I was standing.”
Lala Kent added: “People are so stupid. It still blows my mind that people like, don’t realize we’re filming a show, and it was that girl’s birthday. Like, what are we gonna be like, ‘No, absolutely not’. Like, no. Let’s take a fucking picture – it’s called adulting.”
Literally! I’m posing in a photo for a fan. I take photos w strangers on the daily and have my arm bent up behind ppl. End of story. Should I look miserable in a group fan photo I got thrown in walking to our car? ????? https://t.co/EpCRqWg7St— ????Scheana (@scheana) July 20, 2023
Meanwhile, a source tells Page Six that just because the Pump Rules cast is hanging around Sandoval, that doesn’t mean they have forgiven him. The source adds that Lisa Vanderpump has made “attempts” to “bring Sandoval back” into the fold, but he’s mainly been iced out “due in large part to Tom’s continued lack of accountability for his behavior.”
“Just because the cast is in the same vicinity doesn’t mean that they are getting along,” the source points out. “They are there to support Lisa’s new restaurant and are honoring her request that temperatures be lowered at the moment.”
The insider continues, “The cast wants nothing to do with him, but as Lisa continues to invite him to various filmed functions, they are learning to coexist with Tom, who is very much an outcast to the larger group. It’s going to be a long summer.”
Vanderpump Rules will return to Bravo in 2024.
