Ariana Madix comes for Tom Schwartz after he throws some major shade at her in next week’s episode of Pump Rules.
In a preview for next week’s episode of Vanderpump Rules, Tom Schwartz announces that he’s planning a fun group getaway and plans to invite EVERYONE in the group, including exes Ariana Madix and Tom Sandoval.
“I was talking with Lisa at Vanderpump Dogs, and she mentioned that she’s gonna go up to Tahoe next week, and I invited myself jokingly. She said, ‘Yes. Come invite everyone,’” Schwartz explained to the majority of the Pump Rules crew at Emo Night in Los Angeles.
“Like, are you inviting us?” Katie Maloney asked, to which Schwartz replied, “I am going to invite everyone, including you know who. I’m going to invite him.”
“Why?” asks Ariana, noting, ”I don’t wanna be anywhere near either you are.”
Schwartz replies,”Because I want I wanna invite everyone,” before adding,
“I figured since you guys are already kinda in the same house, it wouldn’t be that awkward.”
“When we’re in the same house there’s a mediator that goes between, and we do not run into each other or interact,” the 38-year-old tells Schwartz.
“I know. It’s a complicated situation. And, um, you guys can book your own spot, but I would love it if you guys came up. You don’t have to see me, or you don’t have to see Tom,” Tom says in hopes of convincing Ariana to come on the trip.
Now, it’s unclear what happens next, but something is said that causes Ariana Madix to tell Schwartz:
“I gave up on you’re a long time ago, and my life is better for it.”
However, Schwartz claps back with a diss of his own.
“You’re not the queen of the group,” Schwartz tells Ariana.
As the preview for next week’s episode of Pump Rules made its way around social media, Ariana commented on the clip while also sharing her thoughts on Schwartz’s diss.
“He’s not wrong,” Ariana commented on Queens of Bravo’s Instagram post.
She continued, “I’ve never thought or said that. Same guy who professes to miss my friendship. Ya right. IMAO. Gotta try and known me down as soon as I remind him I don’t f—k with him just to give me another reminder I made the right choice for myself.”
The Something About Her co-founder recently dubbed Schwartz “completely useless” while sharing her unfiltered opinion on him during an appearance on Cosmopolitan’s “Cheat Shots” video series.
“Tom Schwartz, I don’t want there at all,” the 38-year-old said when asked which co-star she’d like to rough it with on a deserted island. “Completely useless. No, thanks.”
Raquel recently confirmed this much-speculated narrative on her podcast.
On the second episode of her podcast, Rachel Goes Rogue, the 29-year-old revealed that Tom Schwartz knew about her affair with Tom Sandoval from the beginning of their seventh month long affair.
According to Raquel, “Tom Schwartz knew since the very beginning,” explaining that Sandoval told Tom Schwartz about their initial hookup the day after it happened.
“I got a phone call from Tom [Sandoval] the next morning after we hooked up for the first time,” Raquel explained, noting that Sandoval “was at Schwartz’s apartment when he called me. That was, like, a safe space for him.”
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.
Vanderpump Rules airs Tuesdays at 8 p.m. ET on Bravo.
