“Vanderpump Rules” star Scheana Shay’s husband Brock Davies, who joined the show’s cast during season 9, spoke about his relationship with Tom Sandoval in the July 21 “Scheananigans with Scheana Shay” podcast episode. As fans are aware, Sandoval and his castmate, Raquel Leviss, were romantically involved while the Schwartz & Sandy’s co-owner was still in a relationship with his now ex-girlfriend, Ariana Madix. In the “Vanderpump Rules” season 10 finale, Shay, who has a close relationship with Madix, stated that she no longer views Sandoval or Leviss as her friends after their cheating scandal.

While recording the podcast episode, Shay read a question from a fan who inquired if “Brock miss[es] his friendship with Tom Sandoval.” He replied, “Yeah, of course, I do.”

“It’s just very annoying that he did this, unfortunately. And so, until – I’m not just going to forgive him, I don’t think anyone in the group is just going to forgive and move on. We want to kind of, like, have those conversations, so hopefully, they happen this summer. And see how it goes,” said Davies.

The father of three also stated that he misses his wife’s friendship with Sandoval. In addition, he suggested that he hopes to repair their relationship with the Tom Sandoval & The Most Extras singer.

“That’s why it’s such a weird thing. So I miss our friendship? Yes. Do I condone his actions? Hell to the no. And so we’ve got to figure out what that middle ground is on the way back to becoming friends again,” said Davies.

Scheana Shay Received Criticism for Being in a Picture Next to Tom Sandoval

Us Weekly reported that Shay received criticism after standing next to Sandoval in a picture with her castmates for a “Vanderpump Rules” fan in Lake Tahoe. The “Good as Gold” singer and Lala Kent discussed the picture on Shay’s Instagram Stories. Shay stated that she and her castmates did not want to refuse to take a photo together.

“We’re in a group. We’re all here. We hopped in a photo, you know what? I happened to be standing where I’m standing … I take photos with strangers every f****** day. It’s how you take a photo. You stand like that,” stated Shay.

Kent also shared her frustrations as Shay filmed her July 19 Instagram Story.

“People are so stupid. It, like, still blows my mind that people, like, don’t realize we’re filming a show. And it was that girl’s birthday. What are we going to be like, ‘No! Absolutely not.’ Like, no, happy birthday. Let’s take a f****** picture. It’s called adulting,” continued Kent.

Madix addressed the negative comments regarding the picture in a July 21 Instagram Story. In the post, Madix described the “Good as Gold” singer as “an amazing friend who took a photo with a fan for their birthday.” She wrote that “there’s been so many mean comments toward [Shay] for it and she was just doing something nice.”

“We always try to stop for photos and when the whole cast is present, it’s common for the whole cast to be in the photo regardless of what is going on between any of us at the time,” continued Madix.
