The “Vanderpump Rules” scandal got the entire Bravo world reacting and “Summer House” star Carl Radke opened up about where he stands with both Tom Sandoval and Ariana Madix now in the wake of their highly publicized split.
“I actually unfollowed him,” Radke shared with Us Weekly on May 22. Radke and Sandoval both appeared in season 2 of “Winter House,” though they weren’t at the shared house in Vermont at the same time. “I don’t condone cheating,” he continued. “I don’t love the lying and just the way that he responded to some of it.”
Radke shared that while he didn’t reach out to Sandoval and actually unfollowed him, he did reach out to Madix after news of Sandoval’s affair with Raquel Leviss came to light to share his support. “I don’t wanna beat on [Sandoval] while he’s down,” Radke continued, “But I don’t really wanna partake in that. I wish him all the best in his journey and in life, but we’re Team Ariana over here.”

The 1st Part of the ‘Vanderpump Rules’ Season 10 Reunion Aired on May 24
The first episode of the three-part “Vanderpump Rules” season 10 reunion aired on May 24 and it was a very contentious one. The cast often struggled to get through three minutes of conversation without it devolving into a yelling match.
The cast began to discuss the scandal but didn’t completely get into it as Leviss was not on stage during the first part. Sandoval and Madix both shared some of their perspectives and Madix accused Sandoval of creating a narrative that the two had issues in their relationship.
The biggest argument came between Sandoval and James Kennedy as the two men nearly came to blows and Kennedy left the stage for a bit to calm down. Since Leviss had filed a temporary restraining order on Scheana Shay, Leviss was in her trailer for the first portion of the reunion while Shay was on stage with the rest of the cast.
The “Vanderpump Rules” season 10 reunion will continue on Bravo on Wednesday, May 31, at 9 p.m. Eastern and Pacific times.
