Inside, Ariana Madix’s first public appearance since ‘Scandoval’
Ariana Madix is officially back in the spotlight.
The “Vanderpump Rules” star has made his first public appearance since Tom Sandoval was dumped over his affair with Raquel Levis.
On Saturday night, Maddix, 37, starred in a quirky comedy at the Upright Citizens Brigade Theater in Los Angeles, just minutes from her ex-boyfriend’s newest restaurant, Schwartz & Sandy’s Lounge.
An eyewitness told Page Six that the reality star was greeted with “thunderous cheers and applause from the crowd” when he took the stage at the live event billed as “the only game show in the world.”
“From the smile on her face and the little dance she did as she walked onto the stage, she looked a bit surprised, but very grateful for the fans’ support,” the insider said.
“Judging by the excitement the audience has for Ariana, it’s clear that most people are here to see her.”
An eyewitness noted that Maddix “looked carefree,” adding, “She seemed happy to have a fun evening without mentioning ‘Scandoval’ at all.”
we are told the show is called “Make That Sandwich” Kicking off around 10:30pm, Madix wore a brown tweed jacket and fitted skirt with a shiny brown turtleneck and leather knee boots.
The whistleblower noted that the crowd consisted mostly of “Pump Rules” fans who seemed excited by the multiple cameras placed around the small hall.
Comedian Connor Wood, better known on social media as “Fibula,” was also “nervous” for Madix’s new single, as evidenced by a clip obtained by Page Six.
“You shouldn’t have said that. I was having a cool time backstage,” Wood joked when host Lindsay Ames called him out.
“I’m totally over you, but you know what? She’s really cute,” she replied.
“How do we feel about moving forward with that plan?” he asked, trying to change the subject.

As Page Six previously reported, Madix was watching Sandoval’s 40-year-old cover group Tom Sandoval & The Most Extras on March 1 when she found a sexually explicit video of 28-year-old Leviss on his phone. It was later revealed that the couple had been having a secret affair since at least July 2022.
