It’s a wrap! Andy Cohen breaks the events of the Vanderpump Rules season 10 reunion after filming ended.
“Well, that was really confronting [and] it was really emotional,” said de Watch What Happens live with Andy Cohen host, 54, said in a Thursday, March 23 Instagram Story video from his dressing room. “Nothing went unsaid.”
The Vanderpump Rules shape – Lisa Vanderpump, Lala knows, James Kennedy, Katie Maloney, Ariana Madix, Tom Sandoval, Tom Schwartz, Rachel Leviss And Scheana Shay — filmed their season 10 reunion special just hours earlier on Thursday. While few details have been revealed about what happened on set, things were about to get heated in light of Sandoval and Leviss’ months-long secret affair.
Us weekly confirmed earlier this month that the TomTom co-founder, 40, and Madix, 37, had separated after nearly nine years together after cheating with the former beauty queen, 28.
“I want to first and foremost apologize to everyone I have hurt through this process. Most of all I want to apologize to Ariana,” Sandoval wrote in an Instagram statement on March 7. “I made mistakes, I was selfish and made reckless decisions that hurt someone I loved. No one deserves to feel that pain so traumatically and publicly.”
He continued at the time: “I can only imagine how devastating this has been for Ariana and everyone around us. I feel really terrible about that. My biggest regret is that I dishonored Ariana. It was never my intention to disappoint so many people, including our loving families and friends.”
After news broke of the couple’s shocking tryst, many of their Bravo costars were admittedly upset. Leviss even claimed that Shay, 37, punched her in the face when she first found out. While the “Good as Gold” singer denied the claims, Leviss filed for a temporary restraining order. Despite the protective order requiring the two women to stay apart, they each confirmed their presence at the reunion.
“Scheana will be personally present at today’s taping. Scheana intends to follow the law, but she wants to be part of the reunion,” said Shay’s lawyer. Neama Rahmanitold Us hours for Thursday’s recordings. ‘Like Rachel [Leviss’ birth name] lives, Scheana and Vanderpump Rules will make sure Scheana stays 100 yards away to comply with the restraining order. There’s no real way to get the temporary restraining order dropped, so it’ll stay in place until the permanent hearing on March 29, and then it’ll just expire if Rachel doesn’t pursue it. And if Rachel goes through with it, Scheana plans to call witnesses and present evidence to refute her false accusations.
Bravo later revealed the Vanderpump Rules seats, clarifying that two separate versions would be heard from both Shay and the California native at different times.
The SURvers had previously all been candid about how they planned to handle seeing the owner of Schwartz & Sandy and Leviss amid the affair scandal. Madix, for her part, wanted to make a sartorial statement. The Florida native arrived at the filming location wearing a “1-800-BOYS-LIE” hoodie and matching sweatpants. On her shorts were the words, “We’re sorry the number you’re trying to reach has been moved.”
After going all glamorous, Madix traded her comfortable look for a breathtaking ensemble.
“Ariana, is it safe to say you’re wearing a ‘revenge dress’ today?” asked Cohen in a second Story video, referring to Princess Diana’s infamous mini dress after she announced her divorce from King Charles III.
Off-camera, the Lifetime actress teased that it “definitely looks like it.” She added, “I think his eyes are going to bleed.”
The Real housewives executive producer joked that he also felt “kind of energized” while peeking at her ensemble.
Sandoval, for his part, opted for all-black when he was spotted with Leviss – for the first time since the scandal broke – outside the studio.
While neither Cohen nor Bravo have further shared exactly what was discussed during filming, the TV host walked away with some sweet keepsakes.
“I got some new merch to go with my TomTom sweatshirt from Raquel,” Cohen joked in his social media video, donning a “Something About Her” sweatshirt from Madix and Maloney’s upcoming sandwich shop.
Leviss, for its part, previously had the Glitter every day write a glitzy TomTom sweatshirt — from Sandoval and Schwartz’s joint venture — during a WWHL appearance. The former Miss Sonoma County alumnus had donned the hoodie late last year and was nicknamed “fangirl” by 36-year-old Maloney, after hooking up with Utah native Schwartz’s ex-husband. (Leviss, who was previously engaged to Kennedy, 31, in 2021, kissed the Minnesota native during Shay’s August 2022 wedding to Brock Davies.)
After filming ended, several Bravo stars went out for cocktails to celebrate. “We did it,” Shay exclaimed in a Thursday Story video with Madix, Maloney, Kent, 32, and show alum Kristen Doute.
