According to new reports, Madix is “refusing to share the screen” with her former partner and longtime now ex-boyfriend Tom Sandoval after the months-long affair with Raquel Leviss.
According to TMZ, Madix will not be participating in any “one on one” scenes in production. Producers have allegedly had cameras on Tom and Ariana “at the top of their to-do list,” but she has been firm that she is “just not interested in talking to the guy,” per the insiders.
In the new report, Madix has also not spoken “directly” to Sandoval since the season 10 reunion that had fans shocked. The episode was filmed on March 23rd.
The two are still apparently living under the same roof but have been “communicating through other people” for the last four months as well.
Filming for season 11 began late May and is expected to wrap sometime this September.
Cast member Lala Kent also confirmed previously that the two have not shot any scenes together.
“From what I’ve heard, they have not,” she said on Amazon Live Monday. “We have a few weeks left, I believe, so we’ll see what happens.”
In the new season, fans can see things like a group trip to Lake Tahoe with some of the group in attendance. Sandoval, Kent, Tom Schwartz, Scheana Shay, Brock Davies, James Kennedy and Ally Lewber also go to celebrate Lisa’s new place, Wolf, while Madix and Maloney stay behind in Los Angeles.
Shay went on to mention that she had the “most emotionally draining day” while doing a one-on-one meditation session with Tom Sandoval last week.
She stated on Amazon Live, “My eyelashes hurt from how much I cried that day. My contacts were dry. I was congested. I felt weak in every way possible.
While most of the cast has been filming, Raquel Leviss has been playing “hardball” according to reports at Page Six. The star recently changed her name to Rachel allegedly and is continuing to live at her parents’ home in Tucson, Arizona.
