Since Scandoval, Ariana Madix has come to understand how Lala Kent “lost so much weight” during her own split from Randall Emmett.
Kent shared that shortly after Tom Sandoval and Raquel Leviss’ cheating scandal made headlines last month, Madix said the “Give Them Lala” host’s 2021 transformation “now makes sense.”
“‘It’s a different kind of pain,’” Madix, 37, said of the infidelity, according to Kent in Wednesday’s episode of her podcast.
The “Give Them Lala” author, 32, noted that she remembers that feeling from her own breakup, as she “want[ed] to projectile vomit” all the time.
“It’s that gut-wrenching sadness that you can’t explain,” she said.
Kent went on to share that Madix’s California home is no longer a “safe” space to mentally “recharge,” as Sandoval, 40, “won’t leave” despite their breakup.
She explained, “I don’t know if he will now, but for a very long time he [was] … using every room in the house.”
Madix and Sandoval bought their house in 2019 after five years of dating.

The former couple and their “Vanderpump Rules” castmates resumed filming the Bravo reality show’s 10th season when their relationship dramatically ended in March over the bar owner’s affair.
Not only did Madix confront Sandoval — as teased in the mid-season trailer — but she also had words with Leviss, 28, at the series’ March 23 reunion taping.
At the time, Andy Cohen and Lisa Vanderpump teased Madix’s “revenge dress,” which would make her ex-boyfriend’s eyes “bleed.”
The red-hot number was revealed Monday, with Madix smoldering in a long-sleeved gown featuring multiple torso cutouts.
Instagram users gushed over her fiery look, with one calling it “full ‘hell hath no fury’ fashion.”
Leviss wore a draped green number to the taping. Sandoval, for his part, sported a black suit.
The duo, who were spotted chatting in the studio’s parking lot that day, went out to dinner afterwards.
Kent pointed out in last week’s episode of her podcast that Sandoval took the former pageant queen to Musso and Frank, the same restaurant where he and Madix celebrated their ninth anniversary in January.
“Now he’s been outed, [so] Raquel has been upgraded,” Kent said. “She’s no longer a mistress.”
“Vanderpump Rules” airs Wednesdays at 9 p.m. ET on Bravo.
