Vanderpump Rules cast members Katie Maloney, 36, and Lala Kent, 32, sat down to talk about the cheating scandal involving Tom Sandoval, 39, and Raquel Leviss, 28, during a March 14 episode of Give Them Lala. Katie didn’t hold back, even claiming that Raquel “deserved” the backlash following Tom and Ariana Madix’s split. Not only did she tell the 28-year-old she “can say ‘f*** you’ with confidence,” she also called her an “idiot” during the show.
“I gave you every opportunity, I was so nice to you when I didn’t need to be, but I was. The fact that you didn’t actually do that or didn’t appreciate or recognize that and you walked over it and made a huge pile of it, you’re an idiot,” Katie continued around the 5:28 mark. “You deserve whatever comes your way.” The brunette beauty also claimed that Tom isn’t her biggest fan. “I never had a chance with him. He would always find fault with me,” she said, while explaining that he would “throw her aside” if she opened up.

On the subject of Tom and Ariana’s split due to his romance with Raquel, the 32-year-old Bravo personality also had a lot to say. Lala even remarked that it shouldn’t come as a surprise that people’s actions have consequences. “That’s what drives me so crazy, that when people are really f***ing around and then there’s repercussions on your actions and they’re like, ‘That’s not fair’…” Lala said. “And it’s like… you did that. Nobody did this to you, right? So are we sorry we got caught or sorry it happened?” Her apology comment comes a week after Raquel shared a statement of regret with Ariana on March 8 via Entertainment Tonight.

In the statement, Raquel apologized for hurting Ariana, who dated Tom for nine years. “I want to apologize for my actions and my decisions, especially to Ariana and my friends and the fans who are so invested in our relationships,” she wrote at the time. “There’s no excuse, I’m not a victim and I have to accept my actions and I deeply regret hurting Ariana.” She went on to reveal that she takes time to reflect on her “choices” and seek help looking for a consultant.
“I’m reflecting on my choices, talking to a counselor, and learning things about myself like my patterns of codependency and addiction to being loved and feeling loved,” the statement continued. “I have sought emotional validation through intimate connections that are unhealthy, with no regard for my own well-being, sometimes negative impacts on others, and often I have prioritized the intimate connection over my friendships. I’m taking steps to understand my behavior and make healthier choices.” Amid the apology, sources told Page Six that Raquel is currently “ghosting” the 39-year-old. “She completely ignored Tom,” the source claimed on March 8.
Most recently, Katie appeared on Bravo’s Watch What Happens Live on March 15, responding to her ex-husband Tom Schwartz’s interview with TMZ about Tom S. “Well, I don’t think he necessarily said that [Tom S.] was a piece,” she explained. “I think he said it could be him. And I texted him and said, ‘Have you ever heard about there being no comments?’” The last episode of the hit reality series aired March 8, with the latest on March 15 on Bravo .
