‘Vanderpump Rules’ Producers Taking A Break To Figure Out Casting

Vanderpump Rules producers are reportedly taking some downtime after Tom Sandoval’s affair with Racquel Leviss divided the friend group.

Executive producer Alex Baskin told Variety that the reunion was so heated, that everyone needed to take time out to figure out whether not they still want to be a part of the show.

“I had thought that we needed cameras on them right away,” he told the outlet. “And I now think we need a minute.”

“The reunion is not just a recap of what you know, and it’s not just an intense version of the emotions,” he said. “I will put it this way: There are revelations, and they are revelations that not all of them know now. So we need a little space.”

Tom Schwartz is siding with his best friend, Sandoval. The rest of the cast has pretty much sided with Ariana.

“I think everyone’s wrapping their heads around what that might mean,” he said about the stars coming back to the show. “No one’s saying no, I’ll say that — but I think it’s hard for anybody to say yes right now, because they feel like they haven’t gotten any reprieve.”
