Ariana Madix and Tom Sandoval ended their nine-year relationship because of a cheating scandal, and their house is the one shared thing they have left to part with.

On Vanderpump Rules, Ariana Madix and Tom Sandoval had the most solid relationship in the cast.

But when Tom was caught having a seven-month-long affair with Ariana’s friend Raquel Leviss, everything fell apart.

The Vanderpump Rules couple never planned to get married or have kids, and were content with just being long-term partners.

However, it could’ve been a sign that Tom and Ariana’s relationship wasn’t meant to last after all.

Ariana says she countered Tom Sandoval’s “trash” buyout offer

In Peacock’s exclusive clip from Vanderpump Rules Season 11 posted on Instagram, Ariana explains her current living situation with Tom, and why neither of them have moved out yet.

“But what I think is psychotic is that he wants to buy me out and stay here,” Ariana told Katie Maloney, who told him to “go buy something else” with the money.

Ariana continued, “I’m sorry, but then you don’t have to move, and I do?”

In the video’s comments, fans asked Ariana why she can’t just accept Tom’s offer to put an end to the situation.

“WE COUNTERED BC HIS OFFER WAS TRASH AND GOT NOTHING BACK, Jesus y’all, it’s gonna be a looooooong season,” Ariana wrote, shutting down claims that she was wrong for wanting to leave.

While Tom and Ariana are lucky they don’t have any other significant assets like being legally married or sharing custody of children, a house is still a big purchase.

Vanderpump Rules’ Ariana files lawsuit against Tom

On January 5, Ariana filed a lawsuit against Tom for their joint home to be sold and for the two of them to share the profit evenly. Sandoval hasn’t publicly responded to the lawsuit as of yet.

In the Season 11 trailer, she was already seen threatening legal action against him, so between the time of filming to January, it seems as though they were not able to come to a reasonable resolution and Ariana now has to take it into her own hands.

Vanderpump Rules season 11 premieres Tuesday, January 30 at 8:00 p.m. ET on Bravo.
