In a video announcement obtained by TMZ, Vanderpump Rules star Tom Sandoval revealed that he had one month sober. “It’s been one month since I’ve had my last drink of alcohol”, the Vanderpump Rules star says. He added, “I’m just taking a little break for a second”.
As a prominent figure in the reality television industry, Sandoval’s statement carries significant weight, potentially reaching a wide audience and offering hope to those who may be silently battling addictions or who just might want to take a break from alcohol for whatever reason. By sharing his declaration, he helps to destigmatize alcohol consumption and that it might be hurting a situation, not helping.
The drama that surrounds Sandoval has to do with a recent cheating scandal. His longtime girlfriend Ariana Madix accuses him of an affair with Raquel Leviss who is their costar on the show Vanderpump Rules. The couple had been together for 9 years and in the finale of the show, it was revealed that an affair has been going on for 7 months. Bravo boss Andy Cohen who will host the reunion show says “This is a drama that is expected to unfold”
As fans, we can offer our encouragement for Sandoval’s decision to stop drinking. We hope that his story serves as a reminder that taking a break from alcohol at a dramatic time in your life might keep you from saying or doing something you might regret. Getting through this situation without being under the influence is probably the best choice he could make at the moment. He seems to prioritizing his well-being.
