Ariana Madix isn't ready to forgive Tom Sandoval.

The 38-year-old beauty split from Tom in 2023 after it emerged that he had a months-long affair with Rachel Leviss, and Ariana has now revealed that she still isn't ready to get on the "Sandoval sympathy train".

Speaking to Lala Kent on the latest episode of 'Vanderpump Rules', Ariana shared: "My position has not changed that he doesn't get any sort of access to my life via me or via mutual friends.

"I'm not down with him being around. You know, I can quietly remove myself from situations that make me uncomfortable.

"I'm not the person to come to with the Sandoval sympathy train."

Earlier this year, Ariana accused Tom of refusing to accept responsibility for his actions.

She said on an episode of 'Vanderpump Rules': "He still will not take responsibility for what he did. So ease up?! I'm not gonna be like, 'Hey everybody, it's me Ariana on my Instagram Story, if you guys could just like, be nice to my ex-boyfriend who did all these things...' that's not happening."

Tom has spoken openly about his mental health struggles over the last year.

And while Ariana has some sympathy for her ex-boyfriend, she also believes that he only has himself to blame.

She said: "I can understand that he has had some thoughts and some feelings, but those thoughts and those feelings are based on a situation he created."

By contrast, Rachel previously took to social media to apologize to Ariana.

The 29-year-old star wrote on Instagram in 2023: "I want to apologize for my actions and my choices foremost to Ariana, and to my friends and the fans so invested in our relationships. There is no excuse, I am not a victim and I must own my actions and I deeply regret hurting Ariana. (sic)"
