It’s reunion time! Part 3 of the Vanderpump Rules reunion airs Wednesday (June 7) on Bravo.
“There’s never been any reunion in any season, regardless of what was going on, where the cast — all of us — felt united,” Vanderpump Rules star Ariana Madix shared with E! News ahead of the first reunion episode last month. “It was tough, but I almost felt more confident going into that day than I have on any other day filming a reunion.”
Madix also revealed that she got emotional watching the finale. “I watched it here in New York and I cried, definitely,” she admitted. “It was hard to watch but, at the same time, it felt like another lifetime.”
After the Season 10 finale aired, Madix broke her silence on Watch What Happens Live With Andy Cohen, which was her first interview since #Scandoval broke.
Not familiar with Vanderpump Rules? The series began soaring in ratings after star Tom Sandoval was exposed for cheating on Madix — his nine-year, live-in girlfriend with whom he owns a house — with fellow cast member Raquel Leviss, one of Madix’s best friends. The cheating scandal broke in March, causing producers to pick the cameras back up and film an additional finale episode.
Part one of the reunion features Sandoval and Madix along with fellow cast-members James Kennedy, Lala Kent, Katie Maloney, Tom Schwartz and Scheana Shay. Leviss watched portions of the reunion from a nearby trailer because her and Shay were not allowed to be within 100 yards of each other after Leviss filed a restraining order against her co-star, which she later dropped. Leviss opened up about the affair during a solo interview with Cohen, which aired during part two of the reunion. The episode ended just as Leviss walked onto the set of the reunion.
In the third and final installment, Madix and Leviss will be face-to-face on camera for the first time since the scandal broke.
Given everything that fans now know about the monthslong affair between Sandoval and Leviss, the season’s final episodes have felt surreal and cringeworthy at times — but it’s paying off in the ratings. The first part of the reunion reportedly snagged another season high of 2.036 million viewers, while part two wracked up a 1.869 million viewers. Meanwhile, the finale reached scored a total of 4.1 million viewers, Variety reports. That number is up from 1.8 million live viewers and a ratings spike that carried over to WWHL, which snagged a reported season high of more than 1.4 million viewers thanks to Madix.
During the WWHL interview, Madix went into detail about the cheating scandal, the reunion and selling the home she shares with Sandoval. “My plan is to sell the house. I want my money out of that house as quickly as possible and I want to move on,” she told Cohen at the time.
Despite living under the same roof, Madix and Sandoval don’t “communicate on any level.” Instead, the former couple relies on Madix’s friend Logan, and Sandoval’s assistant, to communicate with each other.
Last month, Madix posted a video of stacked up boxes to her Instagram Story with the caption, “Ready to dip out,” but she’s not moving out just yet. In a follow-up post, Madix teased an ad for a collaboration with personal finance company SoFi. “I’m moving up, not out — well, not yet at least,” she states in the video. “It’s time to get my financial house in order. I will have more to share with you very soon.”
Needless to say, Madix has turned heartbreak into a major payday. The 37-year-old reality star inked deals with major brands like Sofi, Lay’s, BIC razors.
Her commercial for BIC EasyRinse razors, which airs during the reunion, has given the product a sales boost. “Sales of our women’s EasyRinse razors were up 35 percent in the two weeks after the spot aired,” Katie Potocki, marketing director for BIC Blade Excellence, told The Hollywood Reporter. “We have seen a ton of social chatter and it’s increasing. We’re nearing 20 million views on Instagram, which is an incredible response. But it’s not just in social mentions, it’s also in sales.”
And it doesn’t look like the gigs will be slowing down. Madix, who plans to open the sandwich shop called Something About Her with Maloney, has been cast in a forthcoming Lifetime movie, Buying Back My Daughter, and is expected to join the upcoming season of Dancing With the Stars. She also made a guest appearance at a Raising Cane’s location in El Segundo, Calif. late last month and threw out the first pitch at the San Diego Padres game with Shay last week.
