AceShowbiz - The 2023 BravoCon seemingly isn't something that Tom Sandoval is looking forward to. In a new episode of his "Everybody Loves Tom" podcast, the "Vanderpump Rules" star admitted that he's feeling nervous as he will have to face his ex Ariana Madix.
In the Thursday, November 2 episode, Sandoval also noted that he's nervous of having the inevitable run-in in front of her loyal fans. "If she comes out, it's like, 'Yay,' [or] whatever. Then I come out and people are going to want to show their, like, loyalty to Team Ariana or whatever, and I'm a little nervous about that," he told his co-star and friend, Tom Schwartz.
The TomTom bar co-owner added, "I have a feeling there could possibly be some people that … feel they need to confront me." Alongside Schwartz, the former couple is set to join fellow "VPR" cast members, including Scheana Shay, Katie Maloney, James Kennedy and Lala Kent, for a panel discussion on Friday.
Sandoval's confession arrived after he got emotional in a recent episode of "Special Forces: World's Toughest Test". The 40-year-old Bravo personality broke down in tears while talking about his controversial affair with his "VPR" co-star Raquel Leviss behind Madix's back.
"I've had a hell of a past, like, three months. It just was the perfect storm," Sandoval admitted. "Like, my publicist had never seen anything like it. F**king 'reality star having an affair' on CNN? It's so stupid. It was exhausting."
As for Madix, she's currently enjoying her time competing in season 32 of "Dancing with the Stars". The reality TV star also revealed to Us Weekly that the whole drama made her more aware of her own strength, saying, "This situation made me realize that I can do hard things. The worst-case scenario literally did happen, and I was OK. Like, look - you can handle what's thrown at you."
