How Ariana Madix cashed in on Scandoval: Vanderpump Rules star reveals amount she made


Ariana Madix revealed making $200,000 in merchandise sales after the Scandoval affair broke on Wednesday’s season 10 reunion episode of Vanderpump Rules.

The 37-year-old reality star has been capitalizing on the affair since splitting with longtime boyfriend Tom Sandoval, 40, in early March after learning of his months-long affair with her good friend Raquel Leviss, 28.

Reunion host Andy Cohen, 54, asked Ariana and her business partner Katie Maloney, 36, how much they made in merchandise sales for their yet to open sandwich shop Something About Her.

‘Well, it’s about $200,000,’ Katie answered.

‘Two-hundred thousand,’ Ariana confirmed.

Andy’s jaw dropped in disbelief and Lisa Vanderpump, 62, said it was enough to open their sandwich shop.

‘It’s really incredible that so many supportive people showed up to, like help us,’ Katie said.

Scheana Shay, 39, looked on proudly and smiled at Ariana and Katie as Katie’s ex-husband Tom Schwartz, 40, and Sandoval sadly looked on.

‘We were always going to do merch in the shop, and we thought that was something we would do, like down the road,’ Ariana explained.

‘That was smart of you,’ Andy noted.

‘But then people were saying ”How can we support you?” And so we launched it early,’ Ariana said.

Ariana then revealed that she brought some Something About Her merchandise for Andy to replace the hoodie that Raquel gave him three weeks earlier that she wore to BravoCon while engaged in an affair with Sandoval.

‘I’d wear that shirt,’ said Raquel’s former fiancé James Kennedy, 32, of the Something About Her brand. ‘Yeah. I’d make it fashionable.’

The reunion was filmed in March a few weeks after the Scandoval affair broke and Ariana and Katie said they expected Something About Her to be open by the end of May.

Tom and Ariana split in March after she learned of his affair with Raquel while supporting him at a concert by his band Tom Sandoval And The Most Extras.

Ariana found a raunchy incriminating selfie video from Raquel on his phone and confronted Raquel who admitted to the secret affair with Sandoval.

Raquel at the time was in New York City for a joint appearance on Watch What Happens live with Scheana Shay.

Scheana admitted that she exploded in anger at Raquel when she learned about the affair and shoved her. Raquel later filed a restraining order against Scheana that forced them to keep their distance while filming the reunion.
