Tom Sandoval doesn’t have many friends these days.
We’re not saying that out of sympathy, mind you, since the guy’s problems are entirely of his own making, but the fact remains that Tom is living a pretty lonely life right now.
most of Vander Pump Rules The cast cut ties with Sandoval in the wake of his affair with Raquel Leviss.
And since Sandoval and Leviss reportedly ended their relationship, he doesn’t even have his a shoulder to cry on.
Throughout most of his shady behavior, Sandoval enjoyed the support of his loyal partner and chief enabler, Tom Schwartz.
Now, though, it seems even Schwartz is fed up with Sandoval’s crap.
according to a new report of TMZ, Schwartz read Sandoval the riot act during a Saturday night gathering at TomTom, the West Hollywood bar the two friends opened together (with the help of Lisa Vanderpump) during a happier time in their relationship.
Pictures taken by a passerby show the Toms engaged in what appears to be a very intense conversation.
At one point, it appeared that Schwartz raised his voice, but it’s hard to tell if he did so out of anger or because the bar patio was too noisy.
Viewers say it was impossible to make out the words being exchanged, but it looks like we’ll finally be able to find out what was said, as a Bravo camera crew was on hand to document the tense conversation.
Yes, after missing the first week of filming, Sandoval is now filming scenes for Vander Pump Rules Season 11.
He was previously filming the second season of Fox’s Special Forcesa show in which former drill sergeants and other military personnel put celebrities through tough tests of endurance.
So yes, Sandoval is cashing in on his newfound notoriety, but at least we’ll see him suffer.
As for Raquel, she is reportedly still absent from this season, but it’s unclear why.
There have been rumors that Leviss is holding out for more money, but sources close to the former beauty queen say that’s not the reason for her absence.
When the media attention around the so-called Scandoval was at its height, Raquel fled SoCal and checked into a mental health facility in Arizona.
Insiders say that Raquel is still undergoing treatment and may not be on VPR Season 11 at all.
That would obviously dampen the enthusiasm for the upcoming episodes, as Raquel is a big part of the show’s recent resurgence in popularity.
But hey, if nothing else, at least we get to watch Schwartz rake Sandoval over the coals!
Viewers say Tom and Tom seemed to calm down quickly after their little argument, and Schwartz was later spotted posing for selfies with fans.
So maybe it was all for show, or maybe Schwartz has already forgiven his womanizing friend.
Either way, we can’t wait to see how Tom’s drama unfolds this season!
