Ariana Madix tells Tom Sandoval ‘to die’ in first post-affair ‘Pump Rules’ trailer
Ariana Madix savagely tells her ex-boyfriend Tom Sandoval “to die” after his affair with Raquel Leviss in the new mid-season trailer for “Vanderpump Rules.”
In the midst of a tense conversation about the demise of their nearly 10-year relationship, Sandoval opens a kitchen cabinet and asks Madix, “You want anything?”
A stoic Madix calmly responds, “For you to die.”
The teaser, released Monday, includes the first footage of the aftermath of Sandoval and Leviss’ months-long affair — now known as “Scandoval” — since it first made headlines on March 3.
“I wish we both would’ve tried harder,” Sandoval tells Madix during the same emotional conversation.
Madix, 37, then fires back that Sandoval, 40, does not “deserve one f–king tear of mine” after secretly carrying on a dalliance with her former close friend.
Elsewhere in the jaw-dropping trailer, Madix and Sandoval candidly discuss their sex lives, with him claiming they only sleep together “like four times a year.”
“I cannot have sex with someone who feels like a stranger,” Madix bluntly replies, although it is unclear whether that conversation occurred before or after she learned about the cheating bombshell.
The teaser ends with several one-second clips of reactions from the cast members, as well as Madix screaming and Sandoval crying in two different scenes.
Page Six previously broke the news that Sandoval and Madix filmed the confrontational scene after Bravo picked up cameras to capture the “Scandoval” aftermath.
“Ariana walked away from the conversation feeling like she was gaslit by Tom,” one insider told us on March 6.
Sources close to production claimed Sandoval gave several excuses for why he “never copped to the cheating” — including that Madix was grieving the death of her grandmother last September.
Page Six confirmed that Madix dumped Sandoval on March 1 after she saw a sexually explicit video of Leviss on her now-ex’s phone.

Madix then discovered that the two had been “communicating inappropriately” since roughly July 2022.
“Ariana was blindsided by the cheating,” one source told us earlier this month, adding that Madix was “heartbroken” over the betrayal.
Sandoval and Leviss have since shared separate apology statements to Madix, but they have not elaborated on the current status of their relationship.
Sources told Page Six on March 7 that Leviss and Sandoval “kissed on camera” while filming the fallout, but things were still “complicated” between them.
Meanwhile, Madix appears to be taking the split in stride, as she performed at a comedy club in Los Angeles on Saturday night.
“She seemed happy to have a fun night where there was absolutely no mention of ‘Scandoval,’” one eyewitness told us.

The new footage will air at the end of the current season before the reunion, which films on Thursday.
In the meantime, Andy Cohen teased that fans will see some serious “foreshadowing” of “Scandoval” in the upcoming episodes — which were not re-edited after the affair became public.
“Vanderpump Rules” airs Wednesdays at 9 p.m. ET on Bravo.
Drinking alcohol was not in the cards.
Bella Hadid celebrated five months of sobriety Sunday by partying in Las Vegas.
“5 months no alcohol today,” the model, 26, wrote on her Instagram Story over a video of herself dancing in a casino.
Hadid shook her curly hair as she flashed a big smile in the clip, which she also shared on TikTok with the caption, “5 months alcohol free.”
Several fans flooded the comments section of the TikTok post to celebrate the star’s sobriety milestone.
“Everyone ignoring the caption Bella so many people look up to you and are proud of you for quitting,” one TikToker commented.
“Yess let’s normalize not drinking alcohol plz,” a second person wrote.
“proud of u my sis . keep going,” a third added.
“Your rebels are So proud of you Bella! We love you and we love that you are happy and sober ,” another commented.

Hadid also shared several photos and videos documenting her Sin City trip with friends on her Instagram Story over the weekend.
In one clip, she used a feathered fan while rocking a sexy red dress. In another picture, she posed next to a slot machine while wearing a backless black ensemble.
She also posted a photo of a box of playing cards and a can of Kin Euphorics, the nonalcoholic beverage brand she co-founded in 2021.
We’re told Hadid was in town to host the opening of Stanton Social Prime at the Caesar’s Palace hotel to promote her refreshments company.
“She was glowing,” a spy exclusively tells Page Six on Monday, adding that she was with a group of friends and “looked so happy.”
Hadid revealed in January 2022 that she stopped drinking alcohol for six months after feeling like she couldn’t control herself.
“I have done my fair share of drinking. I loved alcohol, and it got to the point where even I started to, you know, cancel nights out that I felt like I wouldn’t be able to control myself,” she told InStyle at the time.
Hadid expressed wanting to remain sober for the foreseeable future because she found that avoiding alcohol was better for her mental health.
“I don’t feel the need [to drink anymore] because I know how it will affect me at 3 in the morning when I wake up with horrible anxiety thinking about that one thing I said five years ago when I graduated high school,” she said.
“There’s just this never-ending effect of, essentially, you know, pain and stress over those few drinks that didn’t really do much, you know?”
Hadid also quit drinking for her physical health, explaining that a doctor showed her scans that revealed the negative effects booze can have on the brain.
Last year, the fashionista spoke about dealing with “excruciating” and “debilitating” mental health struggles to the point where she had anxiety about getting dressed in the morning.
“In the last year, it was really important for me to learn that even if people talk about my style or if they like it or if they don’t, it doesn’t matter, because it’s my style,” she told WSJ. Magazine in January 2022.
“When I leave the house in the morning, what I think about is: Does this make me happy? Do I feel good in this and do I feel comfortable?”

Hadid has struggled with anxiety and depression since her younger years.
“My social anxiety was something that slowly crept up on me as I grew into my twenties,” she wrote on Instagram in September 2021. “It got harder for me to go out without having one drink to calm my nerves, which made me not want to go out at all, so I was just hibernating between jobs.”
Two months later, the catwalker shared photos of herself crying on Instagram to show her followers what her depressive episodes can look like, but noted that “it does get better.”
