Wow, Ariana Madix has been booked and busy since last season of The Vanderpump Rules

From breakup to Broadway x

Ariana Madix has been booked and busy since the last season of The Vanderpump Rules and Scandoval drama.

In case you missed it, Ariana Madix found out last March that her boyfriend of nine years, Tom Sandoval, had been cheating on her with her friend Rachel ‘Raquel’ Leviss for six whole months. TMZ broke the story after filming wrapped up on the Bravo reality show. Obviously, the drama, which was dubbed Scandoval, got production to spring back into action. No telly executive worth their salt would let a storyline like that go to waste.

The Vanderpump Rules, which follows the staff at Lisa Vanderpump’s Sexy Unique Restaurant, has had its fair share of infidelity plots since its 2013 debut. Despite this, not one of them captured the imagination quite like this one. As more and more allegations came to light, Ariana proved herself the winner of public opinion. How can you not when it’s claimed your other half had had sex with your pal in the house you own together WHILE you are in the house? It would be difficult not to come out on morally top after that dirty laundry gets aired…

Along with bartending at SUR, failed beauty ventures and a cocktail recipe book in collaboration with Tom, Ariana supplemented her income by being a jobbing actress across Los Angeles. However, sometimes being done dirty by the man you planned your life around can be really good for your career! Let’s look at how she has grown her net worth to a reported cool $2 million.

What was Ariana’s schedule looking like before the Scandoval storyline on The Vanderpump Rules?

Prior to the drama, Ariana had short stints on series like her two-episode arc on the  Roku Original Waking Up With Strangers in 2019. That same year, she joined the rest of her reality television co-stars in playing themselves on The Other Two. Before her explosion of fame, her last acting gig was on Paradise City on Amazon Prime in 2021.

Ariana gets her first Lifetime movie

However, just weeks after the news broke, Ariana was cast in the Lifetime movie Buying Back My Daughter, which was based on the true-life case of a teenage victim of sex trafficking. In the film that aired last October, she played a police officer called Karen.
