Ariana Madix has broken her silence in regard to Tom Sandoval‘s affair with their Vanderpump Rules co-star and friend, Raquel Leviss.
Two weeks after reportedly being “blindsided” by Sandoval and Raquel’s apparent months-long romance, Ariana took to her Instagram page, where she shared a photo of herself in Mexico and a message about her “darkest hours.”
“Hi. Where to begin?” Ariana began on March 16.
“I want to express my most sincere gratitude for the outpouring of love and support I have received from friends, family, and people I’ve never even met in the last two weeks,” she wrote. “When I have felt like I couldn’t even stand, you all have given me the strength to continue and seen me through my darkest hours. To say I have been devastated and broken is an understatement. However, I know that I am not in this alone.”
According to Ariana, she and her “closest friends” are “grieving” the loss of her relationship with Sandoval, and they are “reeling from this betrayal on so many levels.”
“I am so f-cking lucky to have the best support system in the world and I hope I can repay every single person for the love you have shown me,” she shared.
Then, in closing, Ariana warned, “What doesn’t kill me better run.”
Following the sharing of her post, Ariana was met with tons of messages from her fans and followers, including past and present members of the Pump Rules cast.
“THERE SHE IS!!!!” Scheana Shay exclaimed, along with a series of fire emojis.
And James Kennedy posted a bunch of emojis as well, including the fire and hand-clapping emoji.
“I love you babycakes … You are slaying life [and] your support squad is here for your trustfall,” added Kristen Doute. “Watch out world: She back.”
Then, in her first of two posts, Charli Burnett said, “I love you … Always in [your] corner.”
“You look so amazing,” Charli added in a second post as former cast member Brittany Cartwright weighed in with three heart emojis and a fire emoji.
Even Selling Sunset star Chrishell Stause spoke out, telling Ariana, “Yessssss so happy you feel supported and loved!! You look so beautiful and the last sentence … chef’s kiss.”
