The 38-year-old reality star during the season 11 episode titled Notes On A Scandal spoke with her new boyfriend Dan over the phone ahead of going back to the TomTom bar partly owned by her ex Sandoval, 40, and his business partner Tom Schwartz, 41.

Ariana admitted that she was nervous and Dan asked her why.

‘I’m going to TomTom tonight. I haven’t been there since, like, that night that all of that transpired,’ Ariana replied.

A flashback showed Tom performing with his band at TomTom and a title card read ‘Ariana Discovers Tom’s Infidelity’ on ‘March 1st, 2023’.

The clip showed Tom thanking the audience and Ariana wildly clapping for him in support.

Ariana that night learned of Tom’s affair with her good friend Raquel Leviss, 29, after finding a racy video and inappropriate texts on his phone.

‘Part of me was like, should I just not go? And then I was like, no, if I don’t go, then it’s like …that wins,’ Ariana told Dan.

In a confessional, Ariana further explained her reason for going.

‘I shouldn’t have to make my life smaller because Tom messed everything up. And if I can go there and make new memories, maybe it won’t have power over me anymore, and I’ll be able to just look at it as some bar,’ Ariana told the camera.

Dan told Ariana that he was always there for her and would be cheering her on from New York City.

Scheana Shay while watching Lala Kent put on her makeup revealed that she gets asked if she’s on Ozempic lately and said, ‘No, it’s called Scandoval’ as she attributed her weight loss to the affair.

Ariana strolled up to the bar and restaurant with her close friend and sandwich shop partner Katie Maloney, 37, who filed for divorce from Schwartz in March 2022.

‘I need to hold onto you,’ Ariana said as she grabbed Katie for support.

‘Remember when we first walked in here?,’ Katie asked as a flashback showed them walking excitedly into TomTom together when it first opened.

‘It’s a little different now,’ Ariana said.

Ariana and Katie were welcomed at a table by Lisa Vanderpump, Scheana Shay, Lala Kent and Ally Lewber.

‘Do I have to sit right here again?,’ Ariana said.

‘Wait, what do you mean?,’ Lala asked.

‘That’s where I sat last time I was here,’ Ariana said.

‘How are you feeling about that?,’ Lala asked.

‘I’m a little shaky, honestly,’ Ariana answered.

‘Are you?,’ Lala said.

‘Yeah,’ Ariana admitted.

‘Well, you’re in better company this time,’ Scheana said.

Schwartz said hello to Ariana, but she ignored him.

‘Ariana’s got the wall up. She’s an ice queen. I understand that she has this exalted status …Queen Ariana, Patron Saint of Scorned Women, but until the ice melts with her, I just have a feeling it’s gonna be really hard to make any inroads with the rest of the girls,’ Schwartz said in a confessional.

Ariana meanwhile was struggling with being there and said she needed a drink fast.

‘Are you all right? It’s a lot,’ Lisa, 63, said as she reached over and held Ariana’s hand.

Scheana also held Ariana’s hand in support.

‘I didn’t expect to really feel all of this coming up right now. You think that it’s just a place or it’s just a chair. It’s a table, whatever, and I’ve sat in this table so many times. But now that time is really kind of taking over my memories of this place,’ Ariana said in a confessional.

A flashback showed Sandoval and Ariana celebrating the opening of the bar together and talking about being truthful with one another.

Katie hugged Ariana as she leaned into her for comfort while James Kennedy, 32, pumped up the crowd from the DJ booth.

‘To a summer of bad b****es,’ Ariana later said while leading a toast.

The episode opened with Ariana alone at the Valley Village home she was still sharing with Sandoval in the San Fernando Valley area of Los Angeles.

Ariana made her own latte as her dog Mya watched and topped off her drink with a heart symbol written with a cinnamon pen.

She was later visited by Katie as they were going thrift store shopping for tea cups for their business.

Katie noted that it was quiet in the house and Ariana told her that Sandoval was in New Zealand shooting ‘some kind of competition show’, referencing his stint on Special Forces: World’s Toughest Test on Fox.

‘Three months ago when Tom blew up our lives. I was not prepared to be kicked out of my house and start a whole new freaking life,’ Ariana said in a confessional.

‘So, even though we still live under the same roof, I’ve been able to maintain a no-contact policy. We communicate via his assistant, Ann, which is great for me because I don’t have to look at his stupid face,’ Ariana told the camera. ‘But, bad for Ann because that’s literally her job.’

Ariana told Katie that the Valley Village house was the last thing tying them together.

‘But what I think is psychotic is that he wants to buy me out and stay here,’ Ariana said.

‘If he has that kind of money, go buy something else,’ Katie said.

‘I’m sorry, but then you don’t have to move and I do? What, are you gonna bring your little pen pal back over here?,’ Ariana said referencing Raquel. ‘I don’t f***ing think so.’

‘No,’ Katie said.

Ariana in a confessional said that Tom and Raquel were still ‘very much together’ because they were sending mail and packages back and forth.

‘She even sent a postcard with lightning bolts all over it. Like, get a new bit already,’ Ariana said referencing the lightning bolts symbol that Tom and Raquel shared between each other.

Ariana also revealed that Tom in his latest ‘unhinged’ behavior had his assistant glue the penis flute back together that her friend purposefully broke three months earlier after she learned of the affair.

Lala, 33, while at TomTom privately told Lisa that she felt empathy for Raquel after being bamboozled by her ex-fiance Randall Emmett, 52, and afterward sent Raquel an emotional voice message while reaching out to her.

‘Oh, my God. She saw it,’ Lala said after sending the text. ‘I feel like I’m gonna throw up and s*** my pants at the same time.’

Lala the next night during a girls night out told Ariana about sending a text to Raquel.

‘My feeling is that whatever work she’s doing, I hope the best for her, you know, over there. But she’s still doing the same stuff. She’s still in contact with him, and they’re sending packages back and forth to each other,’ Ariana said.

Ariana also revealed that Raquel came to her house around January 2023 when she was crying ‘and it was very clear that Tom and I were still together’ and consoled her while having an affair with her boyfriend.

Scheana in a confessional also noted that Raquel filed a temporary restraining order against her and said the legal move ‘changed everything’ between them.

‘For me, I worry that there are certain people in this world that look at those types of conversations as, like, a foot in the door. And there’s no foot to be had,’ Ariana said.
