The highly-anticipated reunion special for Season 5 of ‘Vanderpump Rules’ is just two weeks away, and HollywoodLife.com got Tom Sandoval and Ariana to break down all the drama that went down while filming the three-part special. To find out what they told us, keep reading!
1. Jax Taylor recently said there will be a few surprise guests at the Vanderpump Rules reunion — who will they be, and what sort of havoc will they wreak?
Tom Sandoval: We do have some special guests come in. [I can’t tell you who.]
Ariana Grande: They’re already on the internet, Tom. [Well], not all of them. There’s a photo of Lala that’s circulated. Bravo TV posted something about Scheana running into her ex (Mike Shay) at the reunion.
Tom: Three of my kids show up that I had no idea I had. It was crazy. One of them was like 24. I was like, ‘How is that possible?’ [Laughs]
Ariana: I think [the guests] all bring out different things in different people. I think some were very necessary, I think there are some books that needed to be closed. I also think there were some that were there for click bait in a way.
Tom: I can tell you that I do, as in other reunions past, I tend to talk a lot and speak up. I don’t know exactly how that’s going to get edited, or what you’ll see, but I tend to do that because [Tom] Schwartz and Jax — I don’t know why, but they always have a hard time speaking up. The day before the reunion they’ll say, ‘I’m pissed about this, I’m pissed about this, and this really bothered me.’ I’m like, ‘Guys, please, please speak up. You know that I’m going to say something that you 100% agree with, can you please just not sit there quietly? Say something.’ It’s also a lot of things that have gone unsaid. And I like to get all the things that have been unsaid, out there.
2. We also learned that Katie gets a lot of heat during the reunion — what will the cast and/or Andy Cohen give her a hard time about?
Ariana: Well, you watched the season, right?
[We said yes]
Tom: Then, you can imagine!
Ariana: I know that she got a lot of heat on social media [about how she treats Tom Schwartz]. It’s questions about her behavior and motivations and relationships within the cast.
3. Who is involved in the biggest fight during the reunion?
Tom and Ariana: There were a lot of them.
Ariana: Conversations were pretty evenly distributed.
4. How nervous were you during the reunion, seeing Jax and James sitting next to each other?
Tom: We were definitely a little nervous. And you’re going to see how that all unfolds. It’s crazy!
Ariana: I feel like I can’t spoil that. That’s a big one, and I can’t spoil that!
Tom: There might be [some punching].
5. What can you tell us about any shocking moments during the reunion? Tease the biggest one!
Tom: It’s when I first walk in and reveal my new hair — reveal that I cut 12 inches of hair off my head. [Laughs]
Ariana: I’d say there’s a couple. There’s something that happens that you would never expect to happen. I was sitting there in my chair and I was like, ‘Oh… s***!’
Tom: There’s actually a lot of things now that I’m thinking about it. There’s a lot of stuff you’ll finally get some answers on.
Ariana: It was a really intense day. There was a lot of laughter, but there were a lot of tears.
