AceShowbiz - Ariana Madix is taking time off from public drama. The "Vanderpump Rules" star was pictured enjoying some time in Mexico after her ex-boyfriend Tom Sandoval's affair with co-star Raquel Leviss was exposed online.
In some pictures and a video that circulated online, Ariana was spotted smiling, dancing and partying in the city of Oaxaca. She flew to the place over the weekend to celebrate celebrity chef Michael Jenkins and Lauren Basco's wedding.
"Ariana was having such an amazing time dancing and socializing," a fellow wedding guest revealed to Page Six. The insider added that the Bravolebrity was "such a sweetheart" and "very respectful to everyone."
For the nuptials, the 37-year-old star donned a pink-and-green dress as she danced through the streets with a wooden fan in hand and a huge grin on her face. The source also claimed that they "didn't hear anything about Tom."
Also in attendance at the wedding were Food Network personality Alex Guarnaschelli as well as Peloton instructor Mariana Fernandez.
Ariana's Mexican vacay arrived after she broke up with Tom, his boyfriend of almost 10 years, after he was caught being engaged in a full-blown affair with Raquel. Speaking in the Thursday, March 9 episode of "Sex, Love and What Else Matters", Kristen Doute shared that Ariana found out their affair when attending Tom's cover band's March 1 concert in West Hollywood, California.
"I was actually with Ariana and Tom that night - we were watching his band play at TomTom," she recalled. "He's done playing, and we'd all gotten up to just kind of chatter and grab a drink."
"All of the sudden, I realize Ariana's gone for - it had to be like 20 minutes or something - because she left her coat and her purse," Kristen added. "So what had happened was, during Tom's performance, his phone fell out of his pocket, and a mutual friend of theirs picks up the phone and hands it to Ariana."
Kristen continued, "The real truth is that Ariana had his phone, and she told me that she just had this gut intuition to look at it." After seeing what was on the phone, Kristen said that Ariana was "not doing well," adding, "She's numb, and she's sad." A source previously claimed that Ariana found a video of Raquel masturbating on FaceTime with Tom.
In the wake of their scandal, Tom and Raquel have issued an apology. Ariana, meanwhile, has yet to publicly comment on the affair.
