ARIANA Madix has defied snide comments from Tom Sandoval with a surprise new project.
Tom Sandoval made a personal comment about sex with Ariana during the Vanderpump Rules reunion, but Ariana responded with a tongue-in-cheek business venture.
Accordingly E! NewsPresenter Andy Cohen, 55, pre-warned the audience that Tom, 39, would make a comment that would “upset every woman in America”.
In the shocking moment, Tom was asked if he had slept with anyone else since his affair with 28-year-old Raquel Leviss.
The star said no, although some of the other cast members said they’d heard rumors of more affairs.
Ariana, 37, who stayed with Tom despite not knowing about his months of infidelity, was quick to clapping back. The TV personality slammed: “Do you know who he slept with after he and Raquel started sleeping together? I.”
Tom replied snidely, “Yes, she kept her t-shirt on. It was really hot.”
Ariana and her co-stars quickly made a move on Tom, with many calling him “disgusting” and warning Raquel, “This is your future.”
However, Ariana decided to see the silver lining to the situation and took to Instagram to promote a new t-shirt inspired by the moment.
The t-shirt featured a graphic of Ariana eating a grilled cheese sandwich with a bright red caption that read, “F**k me in this t-shirt.”

Taking to Twitter, one person preempted Ariana’s move: “Ariana – releasing merch that says ‘this is my sex t-shirt’…fuck Tom Sandoval he deserves all the hate and more.”
Many others also shared their thoughts on the “disgusting” comment.
One person exclaimed, “What did he just say about the t-shirt? Sandoval, you better run.”
A second shocked Bravo viewer wrote: “What did Sandoval just say?! I know he didn’t say what I think he just said.”
“This t-shirt comment is DEMON BEHAVIOR, my mouth is AGAPE,” said a third.
Another commenter slammed: “Disgusting. I literally get sick.”
A fifth smashed: “THAT. COMMENT. Such damned audacity!’
“He deserves a backhand for the t-shirt comment. Absolute crap,” claimed a recent social media user.
Tom’s behavior towards Ariana after she found out about his cheating has also been previously criticized by fans.
Recently, Vanderpump Rules supporters were furious after Tom “blamed” Ariana for his affair in an interview.
After Tom declared that he didn’t think the relationship was “fair,” critics were quick to voice their thoughts on Twitter.
One person said: “Dig a deeper grave brother. Keeeeep digging. It’s so entertaining to watch him blindly embarrass himself…”
“It’s so sad that Sandoval thinks he could hurt Ariana more.
“So selfish,” wrote another.
