Vanderpump Rules’ Ariana Madix Dubs Tom Schwartz  ‘Completely Useless’


Ariana Madix isn’t holding back while sharing her thoughts on Tom Schwartz ahead of the Vanderpump Rules season 11 premiere. 

The Something About Her co-founder shared her unfiltered opinion on Tom Schwartz while appearing on Cosmopolitan’s “Cheat Shots” video series. 

Ariana dubbed Schwartz “completely useless” when asked to rank which of her Vanderpum Rules co-stars she would like to rough it with on a deserted island. 

“Tom Schwartz, I don’t want there at all,” the 38-year-old quipped. “Completely useless. No, thanks.”

This response from Ariana isn’t surprising, considering Schwartz is best friend and business partner with her ex-boyfriend Tom Sandoval

However, Ariana believes she could rely on her female former and current Vanderpump Rules co-stars. 

Number one on Ariana’s list is Vanderpump Rules OG Kristen Doute, who starred in the series for eight seasons before departing in 2020. She made a guest appearance in season 10 amid Ariana and Sandoval’s split. 

“OK, I think No. 1 would be Kristen because I feel like we would both be so set on making a plan and figuring things out,” Ariana said of the Bravo alum, who also happens to be another one of Sandoval’s exes. 

“So I feel like she would be a good person to have first.”

“And then second, I would say Scheana because I feel as though she would be trying to look on the bright side,” she explained. “And I feel like that would be a really nice thing as well to have when we’re probably gonna die, right?” 

“And then Lala, first of all, if she could just walk around naked, that would be great,” she said. 

During Scandoval, Ariana distanced herself from Schwartz after it became apparent that he kept quiet about Sandoval’s affair with their former Vanderpump Rules co-star Raquel ‘Rachel’ Leviss

Despite Ariana giving Schwartz the cold shoulder, the Schwartz & Sandy‘s co-owner is hopeful that he can ultimately repair his friendship with the Something About Her co-owner.

“She’ll give me a nod and say hi, but I think our friendship [is] going to take some work. I got a five-year plan,” he told PEOPLE in December 2023.

Meanwhile, Ariana is focused on starting off 2024 with a fresh mindset and “blank slate” after navigating a very rollercoaster year full of highs and lows. 

While Ariana was left heartbroken after being betrayed and cheated on by Sandoval, the aftermath of the breakup led to amazing opportunities for the reality star, including promotional ads, appearing on Dancing With the Stars, and so much more. 

The Vanderpump Rules star is set to star on Broadway as Roxie Hart in Chicago, starting January 29. 

“This year, it’s all just kind of a blank slate, baby,” Ariana told Page Six on January 9. 

“I mean, I honestly feel like I haven’t even really had a second to stop,” she continued. “I just think that this year really is one I don’t even know how to look ahead.”

Vanderpump Rules premires on Jan. 30 at 8 p.m. ET on Bravo.
