Reality Star Ariana Madix Addresses Potential Comeback to Hit Show!

Ariana Madix, known for her role on Vanderpump Rules, recently shared her thoughts on the possibility of returning to the show for its potential 12th season. Speaking at the Los Angeles Times Festival of Books, Madix, who was promoting her latest book, Single AF Cocktails, emphasized that any decision to return would need to align with her authenticity.

In her conversation with interviewer Yvonne Villarreal, Madix expressed that for her, being genuine and authentic is essential for the show to thrive. She acknowledged that Vanderpump Rules is at its best when it portrays real and authentic moments. Therefore, any potential return for Madix hinges on her ability to show up as her true self.

Reflecting on her current involvement in the show’s 11th season, Madix highlighted the challenges she faced following the revelation of her ex-boyfriend Tom Sandoval’s infidelity with her friend and former co-star, Rachel “Raquel” Leviss. Despite the turmoil, Madix returned to film for the season but opted not to film scenes involving her ex-partner.

Madix opened up about the emotional hurdles she encountered, particularly when revisiting TomTom, the restaurant co-owned by Sandoval. She admitted feeling anxious about returning to the place where she learned about Sandoval’s betrayal. However, Madix chose to confront her discomfort, aiming to reclaim the space and create new memories.

Away from the cameras, Madix has been focusing on personal growth and pursuing other endeavors, such as her recent role as Roxie Hart in Chicago on Broadway. Additionally, she has found love again with fitness influencer Daniel Wai.

As for the future of Vanderpump Rules, Madix’s stance remains grounded in authenticity. While she didn’t confirm her return for the potential 12th season, she emphasized that any decision would be contingent on whether it aligns with her values and allows her to be true to herself.

Fans can catch Madix and the rest of the Vanderpump Rules cast on Bravo, where the show airs on Tuesdays at 8 p.m. ET. Those who miss the broadcast can stream episodes on Peacock the following day.

In summary, Madix’s considerations about returning to Vanderpump Rules underscore her commitment to authenticity and self-awareness.
