Former Vanderpump Rules star Jax Taylor has slammed Tom Sandoval after he announced the launch of his new podcast a day after his ex-girlfriend of nine years, Ariana Madix, made her Dancing With The Stars debut.
“I’m happy for him, but I don’t think he should have launched it the day after Ariana’s ‘Dancing With the Stars,’” he told Page Six.
“I think that was bad PR, and the fact that he is trying to redeem himself and make himself a better person — whoever told him to announce this the day after … not a good move. I don’t understand why he couldn’t have announced it maybe a week later.”
Tom and Ariana split after she found out that he had an affair with their former costar, Raquel Leviss.
During the first episode of his podcast, Tom revealed he is now sober.
“Your world just starts collapsing itself and you cannot see outside of your feelings,” he shared. “Your peripheral goes away, your sense of thinking about future, about like, ‘Oh come on,’ like, you’re ability to snap out of it goes away.”
