Tom Sandoval expresses regret over his affair with Raquel Leviss with Ariana Madix: I could have handled the situation better.
In his first interview with the media since the story emerged, Tom Sandoval acknowledged that the response regarding his relationship with co-star Raquel Leviss has "been hard."
A few days after shooting the Vanderpump Rules reunion, Tom Sandoval admitted to cheating on Ariana Madix with Raquel Leviss.
He later expressed regret for his actions. When asked if he would go back and reverse what he did, the reality star, 39,
replied that "hindsight's always 20/20" during a brief interview with TMZ on Monday night March 27 in California.
In addition, Tom said that he "could've handled things a lot better" in respect to his relationship with Raquel, 28, whom he had an affair with while dating Ariana, 37, for nine years.
Tom admits the public backlash over his affair has been "unexpected" and "rough" on his businesses.
Tom spoke to the media for the first time since the scandal began on March 3 around this time. On March 4, the Bravo personality requested followers to keep Tom Schwartz, his family,
friends out of the controversy in his first Instagram post regarding the issue. Tom apologized for everything, but he made no mention of Ariana in his statement.
