Girl, Just Lay It on Me, Are Scheana And Sandoval Friends In 2024?

It’s important to remember that Scandoval did not just affect Ariana Madix, Tom Sandoval, and Rachel Leviss. It affected all of their friend group, who are definitely self-centered enough to make it about themselves. An unsurprising amount of the Scandoval episode and reunion revolved around how much Scheana’s life has been changed by Tom cheating on Ariana, and how this would come in the way of her friendship with the Worm With a Mustache. So are Sheana and Tom Sandoval friends in 2024, or did she really kick the worm to the curb?

Let’s see whether her loyalty was as good as gold.

What Happened Between Scheana and Tom Sandoval on Vanderpump Rules?

Scheana had been close with both Tom and Ariana pre-Scandoval. She was even friends with Rachel, who had been one of her bridesmaids and spent a lot of time with Scheana and her hubby.

During the Season 10 finale, which aired in May 2023, Scheana and Tom had a tearful heart-to-heart gaping abyss, where she told him, “I don’t even know where to go from here. I mean, obviously we’re not friends anymore, because I can’t support anything you’ve done.”

Not to mention Tom’s girlfriend had filed a restraining order against her and accused Sheana of punching her. She can’t even make a fist with those acrylics!!! Remember??

But since then, Scheana seems to have wavered on this decision.

At BravoCon 2023 in September, it was revealed that Scheana had spent time hanging out in Tom’s hotel suite. James Kennedy pointed this out, and falsely accused Lala of being there as well (which she did NOT appreciate).

Scheana spoke to Page Six to “clear” up the matter. “There was a lot that was said, and I’ve not been easy on him,” she said, before sharing that she went to his room to continue to have “conversations” with Sandoval about why he shouldn’t be talking about Ariana anymore. “I’ve been very stern with how I feel and what I disagree with.”

Although later, Scheana responded to a fan’s question on the matter, and said, “Last night, there were a lot of us who, after the bar closed, we continued the party in his room. It’s an after party, I don’t say no to an after party.”

That’s suspicious…

Sheana also discussed her friendship with Tom on her podcast “Scheananigans, and said, “I never thought he was a bad guy. He was one of my best friends for almost 15 years. He was the only person who had my back on this show, who fought for me whenever something was unfair and he was the person there in my corner.”

She continued, “I have personally really struggled with all this because I’m like, ‘Yes, you did a really bad thing. But you weren’t a bad friend to me. But then what you have done has affected me, so it’s just changed the entire dynamic of our group.”

Ugh, doesn’t it just suck when your friend cheats on your other friend! It is such an inconvenience.

Tongues were wagging after the new trailer revealed them having a cozy chat, and Sheana claims we totally don’t understand what’s happening.

She told Page Six, “Let me tell you this. It took a whole season and a lot of conversations to even have that moment.”

But we can expect at least one emotional scene between the two ex-besties, as they were apparently COINCIDENTALLY paired together for a “spiritual meditation healing” during a cast trip to Lake Tahoe.

“Wednesday filming was beyond the most emotionally draining day I have ever had in 11 seasons of Vanderpump Rules,” She said on an Amazon Live. “My eyelashes hurt from how much I cried that day, my contacts were dry, I was congested, I felt weak in every way possible.”

Basically, me after any minor inconvenience in life.
