Ariana Madix, 38, stayed drama-free on Saturday, avoiding an awkward run-in with ex Tom Sandoval, 40, as the Vanderpump Rules cast was spotted filming at SUR restaurant, where Jax Taylor and James Kennedy were hosting a brunch.
The blonde beauty kept her look casual, rocking a chic one-shouldered brown dress with clear slide sandal-like heels.
She wore her hair tied back in a loose knot, throwing on a pair of brown sunglasses to shade her face from the sun.
Ariana’s dress perfectly showed off her toned legs, as she flashed a smile when joined by her fellow Vanderpump Rules co-star and friend Katie Maloney.
The pair, who recently opened the Something About Her sandwich shop together, couldn’t stop smiling as they arrived at SUR together.

Meanwhile, Tom rocked a look inspired by the 70s as he stepped out in a groovy brown, orange and yellow shirt tucked into flared cream trousers.
The TomTom bar co-owner sported a pair of aviator shades and white platform Converse sneakers.
Despite being the show’s latest villain, Tom looked in a great mood as he rolled up the Lisa Vanderpump-owned eatery.
Ariana, Katie and Tom were also joined by castmates Lala Kent, Scheana Shay and Tom Schwartz for James and Jax’s afternoon event.
Despite the fact that Tom and Ariana are very much broken up, the couple still live together, much to the chagrin of Vanderpump Rules fans who watched the dramatic Scandoval play out in real time.
The blonde beauty defended her decision not to move just yet, explaining to a follower, ”I live in my home that I own while working with my lawyer and financial advisors to navigate the best path forward before uprooting my dog and my elderly cat and causing more trauma for the three of us.’
Meanwhile, the Buying Back My Daughter star SLAMMED Bethenny Frankel’s recent bombshell interview with her ex-BFF Raquel Leviss.
During the interview, the Skinnygirl founder downplayed Ariana’s relationship with her cheating ex-boyfriend, noting that they weren’t married and didn’t have any kids together.
Ariana clapped back on the Scheananigans With Scheana Shay podcast, saying, ‘In many states, [he was my common law spouse]…I find that hurtful in regards to other women in relationships who don’t have children. Maybe they can’t have children or don’t want children or don’t want to get married.’
In spite of the recent fresh drama, the Florida-born bombshell has found love again.
The petite reality television star is currently in a relationship with her new boyfriend, Daniel Wai, who she describes as having ‘a very grounding, calming, positive energy.’
‘He’s very like, always trying to help with things,’ she gushed to Shay.
