“Vanderpump Rules” star Scheana Shay spoke about the ongoing drama surrounding Tom Sandoval’s cheating scandal in a May 2023 interview with In The Know. As fans are aware, reports circulated in March 2023 that Sandoval and his castmate Raquel Leviss were romantically involved while he was still in a relationship with his now ex-girlfriend, Ariana Madix. While speaking to In The Know, Shay acknowledged that she was skeptical when James Kennedy’s girlfriend, Ally Lewber, voiced her concerns about Leviss and Sandoval’s relationship in season 10, episode 12. The “Good as Gold” singer also criticized Katie Maloney as she believed she claimed that Madix and Sandoval had an open relationship.

Shay stated she is fine with the fact that she came to Leviss and Sandoval’s defense while filming “Vanderpump Rules” season 10. She explained she believes her behavior exhibited that she is loyal to her friends.

“I want to beat myself up about it and be like ‘I should have seen this, I should have asked this and that’ but at the end of the day, I’m proud of myself for being a good, loyal friend. You know, like, I had their back, I defended them because I thought they were good people and I thought they would never do this. So I can’t let myself be upset with my past actions,” said Shay.

She also stated that while she feels uncomfortable watching certain moments from “Vanderpump Rules” season 10, she thinks “[she] was a good friend” to Leviss and Sandoval.

“I’m not going to apologize for being a good friend,” said the mother of one.

While recording the April 28 episode of her podcast, “Scheananigans with Scheana Shay,” Shay revealed that she began to believe that Sandoval and Leviss were romantically involved in January 2023. She explained that her castmate, Lala Kent, was suspicious of their friendship and “put some things in [her] head that finally clicked.” The reality television star stated that Leviss traveled to Sonoma, California to go see Sandoval perform in his band Tom Sandoval & the Most Extras. According to Shay, she started to not trust the former pageant queen after she “didn’t post [on social media] at the show.”

“I was like hold on. There might be some truth to this and that’s when I started questioning them,” said Shay.

The “Vanderpump Rules” star shared that she decided to tell Leviss that she believed “something is going on” between her and Sandoval. She stated that she accused the 28-year-old of lying about the situation. According to Shay, she told her castmate that “it makes [her] feel like if [she] could do this to Ariana, [she] could do it to [her].”

“She goes ‘Oh my god, no, Scheana, it’s different’ and I said ‘What do you mean it’s different because you are doing it to Ariana?’ And she said ‘No, no, of course not. I mean it’s just different like [your husband] Brock [Davies] is like a big brother, I would never, I would never do that to you.’ I go ‘I thought Sandoval is like a big brother to you too?’” said Shay.
