When the Bravo series kicked off season 10 in February 2023, the topic on everyone’s mind was Tom Schwartz‘s hookup with Leviss amid his divorce from Katie Maloney. One month later, Us Weekly confirmed that Sandoval and Ariana Madix had called it quits after nearly a decade of dating due to his infidelity.
Sandoval later put his coworkers on blast for benefiting from the drama. “Using this to make it seem like everything I have done for them — they make it out like I am a narcissist,” he said during an April 2023 episode of the “Howie Mandel Does Stuff” podcast. “Using all these things as content for their podcast. Fellow cast members are asking me all these questions, but you don’t want to know because you care about Ariana. You want to know so you have more content for your podcast. It is f—king disgusting to me. It is so gross. You are not someone who gives a flying f—k about Ariana. You are doing this for your own personal gain.”
Leviss, for her part, blamed the network for not paying her enough amid the drama. “One of the things that producers also told me is that you get paid based off of your performance from the season prior,” she claimed on Bethenny Frankel’s podcast in August 2023. “So that already set me up to want to perform well going into season 10. I was like, ‘OK, this could be my season. I could really stand out and I’m single for the first time. Like, I wanna embrace that.’ And I took direction well.”
