The husband of RHONY star Jessel Taank claps back after getting some shade from Sai de Silva for his decision to take a quick solo trip to Vietnam.
Pavit Randhawa, the husband of RHONY star Jessel Taank, is a foodie who loves to travel and try new dishes, which is why he’s firing back after getting questioned about his decision to take a solo trip to Vietnam for a sandwich and some airline miles.
The financier and businessman has been documenting his travels on Instagram for years, which is why he thought nothing of it when he mentioned to his wife that he planned to do a mileage run to Vietnam and get himself a Banh Mi sandwich, plus some alone time.
This news raised a few eyebrows among the RHONY cast, including Sai de Silva, who learned of Pavit’s trip during a chilly lunch with his wife.
“He kind of does this, like, mileage run,” Jessel explained to Sai, who smirked upon hearing the news.
Jessel explained that this is something Pavit does “frequently,” noting that “He’s doing his thing.”
“Do you know her husband is going to Vietnam for 24 hours?” Sai asked, to which Erin replied, “That’s bizarre.”
Pavit clapped back at Sai for talking about his travels. He encouraged Sai to focus on her own relationship and leave his marriage alone.
In a confessional interview, Pavit quipped:
“I’m actually wondering why Sai is bringing up this trip to Vietnam. I think she thinks that there’s something else going on, so maybe she’s trying to catch me in a lie. I don’t know. There’s no lie, though. I’m going to eat Banh Mi. Be concerned about your own relationship. Let me and Jess be.”
Following this week’s episode of RHONY, Pavid further explained and defended his travels. On Instagram, Pavit explained that this wasn’t the first time he’s done a mileage run after finding good travel deals.
Pavit says that in 2018, he scored a first-class ticket to Vietnam on the Hong Kong airline Cathay Pacific for $675 when they normally go for $16,000.
I’ve been getting asked a lot of questions. So it was New Year’s Eve 2018. I’m with Jess in Mexico City, and I see this alert for a fair popup for Cathay Pacific, first-class [to] Vietnam. We’ve been together before, so I asked her if she wants to go with me again on a mileage run, and she says, ‘No chance,’ even though it was first class. So I asked her if I can go by myself. She said, ‘Sure, no problem.’ I booked three tickets, and as you can see here, they honor the fair a few days later. So I’d be an idiot not to actually go and use my tickets. But stay tuned ’cause I’m gonna share some my, share my experience about what the sandwich was like.
