    The fact Sandovals family let Raquel stay and never reached out to Ariana is DISGUSTING. I’m sure Tom’s family became Ariana’s over the course of 9 years, that would’ve been extremely hurtful.

      If it was my son, I would express disapproval but not call the gf or interfere. It isn’t up to me.

      ​@Ms Nawrecka If his family had/have any decency they would not allow Rachel to stay either and they would tell their son to leave to sort his 💩 out before coming back. That's if they had/have decency but they are related to Tom Scandoval so I doubt they recognise people that are good to them, people who sacrifice for them or people have been good to them.
      I'm glad Rachel showed her true colours and outed Scandoval he ain't gonna find another Arianna that hid his secrets and watched his ass for him. He was only interesting because of Arianna and how they developed their style together. Now he's just an old man plus nobody and so is Rachel. They'll lose interest in each other now as they were only someone because of Arianna. No Arianna, no interest in Scandoval and Rachel.

      That’s why pple say being introduced to some families while in a relationship means nothing. 9yrs n non of them even texted Ariana it’s sad fcking sad

      Probably they way he did about Kristen.

    The fact that Tom wanted her to lie about the timeline of their affair just solidified what LaLa said about him being dangerous.

      Lala is a mean girl and bully. Not to mention she’s tried at one time or another to sleep with them all. It’s called the human condition takes 2 to make and break. Something was missing at home Tom tried to leave once before and Ariana threatened suicide. I say he should have left anyway

      Yah but she could have taken a beat once in a while, we barely heard from Katie and Ariana only really spoke her feelings after Tom asked that question. Lala made it too much about her.

      Who said that she tried suicide? Who said he tried to break up first?
      Tom? Are taking your facts from Tom Sandoval.???
      You have played into his game just as much as Raquel did. 🤦🏼‍♀️

    Loved how when they called out Tom's crocodile tears, he started again and said it with absolutely zero fake crying. If they were real tears, he would have still cried. He has always grossed me out and I never got what anyone saw in him. I think he 100% took advantage of Schwartz's friendship and loyalty and knew he was already struggling in His own life. He also knew Rachel had issues of her own that he used to his own advantage and she had the intelligence of a 10 yr old (not knowing to not put metal in a microwave or know how a marriage works) I think he knew she would be a groupie and not question anything and made her thi k there was nothing wrong with what they were doing. I think now they are both just diabolical Narcissists and they better stay together. I don't think anyone left on this planet would ever want to take a ride on either one of those crazy trains!

      OH, WELL lVP was telling him what to say. She makes over other people's children. SHES HOT THEM IN A BAR AND THEY ALL LOVE TO PARTY AND DRINK NOT GOOD ENVIRONMENTS FOR YOUNG COUPLES, ESPECIALLY THE MARRIED. The guys especially like to party and play and they have Lisa helping them financially and no matter what rotten things they do, it's OK because they love this for TV. Katie has been the smart one who wants to be true to herself and is willing to work hard. Blessings to all.

    Raquels lack of emotion is CHILLING, The fact that her apology to Ariana is so cold and just robotic was so hard to stomach. Like how can you just not be sobbing? You blew you your whole life for a what? FOR WHAT? It's so sad for Ariana but Raquels just blank face is chilling, disturbing and concerning and that's putting it mildly.

      I think whatever her issue is is pretty deep and needs to be diagnosed by a psychologist. Not only did she act like this this entire season but she's acted like this before. She seemed to be numb to a lot of James issues and she was numb this season as well.

    The executive producer comes across as so professional, smart, but so emotionally intelligent and sensitive. No wonder this show has lasted until a season 11. Really loved getting to see him and hear his POV! ❤

      @Sashay Away Right? And the fact that they along with Andy can see that something's not right with Raquel ("out of touch", "medicated", "seems very level") and still sent her into an aggresively angry mob!

    I absolutely loved the uncensored, extended reunion on Peacock. It was interesting to watch both the Bravo and Peacock coverage. So many small but significant moments were included on Peacock. My hope is that Bravo will consider continuing this trend for other shows’ reunions. For anyone to try explain Tom’s callous comment about A. wearing a tee during sex is disgusting. Exhaustion is not an excuse. It may account for him dropping the act and letting us see how he spoke to A. off camera. What else did he say to drag her down when the world wasn’t watching? As for the “shocking” revelation at the end, as a VPR fan who follows the show’s social media gossip, it wasn’t a surprise at all.

    • Monika Kriegisch

      Did you see when tom and raquel was in the dressing room he was drinking a hard seltzer and he turned his back to the camera and got a bottle of something dark out of his bag and it was almost empty. You know how drinkies make you emotional, maybe that's why that last cry looked real.

      But really. Why would you wear a T-shirt during sex? American women are so bizarre 😅 I get that in the heat the moment u may not get to take your shirt off, but this sounded like she kept the shirt on, because that’s how insecure she was about her body. How are u so insecure after 8 years or whatever of relationship. Also, her behavior during the show ? It was very telling that she is not truly a good human being lol. At 35, you should be able to get your thoughts together after 2 weeks of knowing about the whole thing. They did have issues. Yeah, it’s messed up he cheated with their mutual friend, but I mean, is it really that surprising considering that the whole group has no morals? They act like they do, but really, they don’t. It’s time they all looked in the mirror 😅

  • CikisHelyzet

      Arianna knew them for almost 10 years and she said none of Tom's family reached out to her ... shameful!

      SLASHERWAVE TV 3 months ago +35

      @Diana Scott I mean what was his family supposed to do? I feel like yes that’s his family but it’s not really their business, they probably just didn’t wanna get involved or didn’t care.

      Tom is 42. What do you expect his parents to do?

    • Rochelle Hansen
      Rochelle Hansen 3 months ago +66

      After 10 years and not have any family reach out? That’s effed up because they should be as close as family with her after that long. I’ve been with my boyfriend for 7 years and if this shit happened to me and his family didn’t reach out at all AND knew before hand and let it slide….oh I would lose my ever loving shit! That’s straight up fucked up.

  • Truthseeker
    Truthseeker 3 months ago +510

    Ariana was so good with managing her anger given the circumstances and as Andy said her comebacks were so laser focused and succinct. Despite it all I could feel her hurt. It was so palpable especially her tears and that moment she stood up for herself when Shwartz confronted her about the fact that the whole country was behind her.

    I honestly think Raquels lack of emotion is just a defense mechanism for the reality of the consequences of her actions. I mean the life she had with her friends, her job, rising role in a reality tv series - the trajectory of her life has just completely crashed and will arguably never look the same. I mean, this is career ending in a variety of ways, the social, emotional, and financial fallout alone would be traumatic enough…but that doesn’t even include the cultural fallout; I mean, can you imagine becoming an American cultural sensation in which peoples hatred of you is collectively shared both nationally and internationally??? Shit, do you know how rare it is for democrats and republicans to agree about anything in America?? Well Raquel has just achieved that, becoming a pop cultural fleeting individual who is collectively embraced by all media/news outlets with the same outrage and disgust. I couldn’t even imagine.

    • lalimf305
      lalimf305 3 months ago +38

      Agreed. I don’t think she can mentally handle the impact and extent of her vile actions yet. Like…that shit is eating her up and will forever eat her up as long as their relationship continues. I’m not saying this because I’m holier than thou. I’m saying this bc when you’ve played any similar role in infidelity, you’d understand it would’ve been 1000% easier to have never done it in the first place. She’ll learn too. It’ll just come with a hard price.

    Sandoval’s crocodile tears were sickening!!! The first time he started the ridiculous, disgusting, and fake crying is when he went to Lisa’s house. Getting up and going to the corner and ACTING and FAKING the crying, sobbing, and shaking really showed how disingenuous and rotten he truly is. Sandoval isn’t sorry for the mess and turmoil he’s created HE’s ONLY SORRY HE GOT CAUGHT!!! The same goes for Raquel. And frankly I think both Sandoval and Raquel wanted to up their time in the spotlight, and did it via this “affair”.

    • Rebecca Ellison
      Rebecca Ellison 3 months ago +1

      I agree with most everything you said BUT I don’t think he ever expected to get caught. He’s always, throughout the entire show, tried to make himself seem like the best guy in the group. Especially since the whole Kristen debacle. He’s obsessive about not being put in a negative light so to do this in order to gain the spotlight goes against all of that. But I have always had the ick about him from the start. Never understood why people liked him.
      Raquel on the other hand, while she may be aged out of pageants, she’s not too young to make stupid decisions. I think she desperately needs to learn about herself and why she ruined some amazing real friendships for a man. My husband and I jokingly say we never would be married if we had met in our 20’s or we would already have been divorced. I did absolutely stupid things as well (not cheating wise but certainly questionable decisions) that I knew were wrong. I think she could make a comeback but it will take a long while and a REAL apology tour.

      @Rebecca Ellison Agree on Sandoval. He thinks he’s just so much smarter than everyone else! And you called it “icky” is exactly my reaction to Sandoval. 😂😂
      Raquel seems extraordinarily reliant on someone else to tell her she’s ok-and that includes her family!! She’s simply not mature enough, not assure of herself, and certainly experienced in relationships. She jumped into the deep end not knowing how to swim, without arm floaties, not even a pool noodle, and any lifeguard(s) she had have left the pool area. She has really screwed herself with such a big issue, betrayal, lying, sex in their friend group, and everything documented on TV. And she’s really going to be alone when Sandoval dumps her, if he hasn’t already.

  • Sommer Conroy
    Sommer Conroy 3 months ago +56

    The only, I repeat, the ONLY time Raquel cried was when she was talking about her reputation and how it’s a bad look. The ONLY time she cried. There’s something fundamentally wrong with her.

    • Sam Banack
      Sam Banack 3 months ago +6

      but, like, the bad look thing - sounds like it came STRAIGHT from Sandoval's mouth... like a parrot. and that was the gaslighting he needed to keep her quiet... very stockholm syndrome.... she is not an innocent in this. but she was DEFINITELY groomed

    Rachel’s real true feeling about what she did was showed when filming right after they was busted at her house with Sandoval. She was laughing and smiling and giddy the whole time. Guys, every time after that was prepared interviews. Also watching Rachel watch the reunion from trailer showed another moment that was not a prepared moment and yet she still sat whole time stoned faced. Again shows how she really feels. Matter fact she was rolling her eyes and aggregated at moments. I’m telling you, watch the times Rachel isn’t prepared for and being filmed, you can see her stoned cold heart. No emotions of remorse whatsoever!!!🤯

    The emotional detachment from Tom and Raquel is beyond disfuctional....Its pathological. Two psycopaths trying to make sense of their own mess is just beyond sad and scary. Its toxic and if BRAVO decides to keep both on after this wreckage, it will only show how deep down the rabbit hole they are willing to go in spite of the irreparable damage they both have caused to the cast....for the sake of numbers....That in itself would be incredibly selfish and corrosive.

    I think that Rachel started seeing things for what they were when it was mentioned that he slept with Arianna after Rachel. I think when Sandoval was crying at the very end and told Arianna that he would always love her and wish the best for her, it put Rachel over the edge and that's why she came out with the truth. I think her emotional detachment was due to meds and it also helped her to make the decision to throw him under the bus,

  • Stephanie Miller
    Stephanie Miller 3 months ago +113

    My theory is that Rachel’s parents made her tell the truth in her interview. They probably said something like You need to stop sticking up for Tom. He’s making you look bad, he’s making the family look bad and until you go and tell the truth we will no longer support you. And I bet the only reason why she was crying so hard was because she thought she was going to lose Tom because of what her parents were making her do.

    I think that Raquel found out a lot sitting in the trailer and watching the others on TV, and that's why she chose to tell the truth in the end. I'm glad that she did and I know that is why the others are beginning to feel kind of bad for her and that's the Raquel that I enjoyed watching.

    I survived a narcissist relationship. If you have not been through it, you truly can’t understand. I didn’t understand. And actually didn’t realize what it was until I was dealing with it afterwards and trying to understand him and what happened. This was over 10 years ago and not nearly as much awareness and info available as there is now. That being said, she can NOT blame her behavior on that. Do I think he manipulated and played her, absolutely. But as Arianna’s friend, she should have never been sucked in far enough to begin with for him to be able to control her. Also, her treatment of Katie about Schwartz shows her true colors.

    Tom trying to down play he and Ariana sleeping together because he had told Rachel that the intimacy had totally stopped to be worried about not wanting to seem like you are “cheating” on your mistress is so gross 🤮 and to down play it in a a way that further hits below the belt at your ex you cheated on is so evil I can’t even imagine how terrible of a person you have to be to do that. But again that’s who he truly is those moments show him without this mask he puts on

      But ariana wasnt having $ex with tom…for a long time. She was cold. Didnt want kids, or to get married…and he did. Maybe he went about this all the wrong way…..cheating isnt how you get out….. but ariana isnt innocent. She cheated with Tom on Kristen and on Tom with Lala. Why is everyone so offended? If youre a woman and acting like ariana, you can guarantee you will get cheated on. And her cheat dress? Seriously 😂. That red dress. Sorry…its just wasnt good. She isnt fit enoug to pull that off and racquel doesnt even have to try. She is you g and new-bile. And thats why Tom was drawn to her.

      @I'm Always Right you misinterpret……my opinions are suppose to be a reflection for Ariana, pointing out how she contributed, she is playing the victim way to hard for not taking any responsibility for driving him away. He isnt defensible, so thats incorrect, but did she expect him, at 40, to keep trying to get her to take the payh he wanted? Kids etc. Ariana had what she wanted, but he didnt, she didnt seem to notice and he was miserable.

    Loved this video 👍 Also loved the one on one interviews being played as part of the reunion, it was a very smart decision because the fans would have been pissed to not hear from those three individuals because of all the yelling over each other. I actually turn on the closed caption so I can at least read what they are saying.

    there clearly is something wrong with Raquel but after seeing the last 5 minute bit where she cops to the timeline I really really believe this was mostly Sandoval. Sandoval clearly sought out Raquel knowing he could fully groom and manipulate her. The fact that he could sit throughout the entire reunion saying 'im taking accountability for it' when he was forcing Raquel to lie with him about the time line!!!!! He's really the most manipulative, disgusting prick. Also the amount of times Raquel said this summer 'she wasnt going to a people pleaser and do things for herself', but like use those exact same words multiple multiple times, i feel like even that line was fed to her by Sandoval. He probably told her he and ariana is open and that she shouldnt fight these feelings and stop 'being a people pleaser' like UGH Raquel definitely took a part in this but i dont think people are giving Sandoval enough credit for the extreme manipulation and non stop lying that he has been doing this entire time. He's GROSSSS.

    Scheanna has always defended people while they were being terrible and malicious to her friends. This is the first time in the series that she’s taken a real moral stance against someone’s actions. It’s only because she was personally attacked. Scheanna is sweet natured but she also so incredibly self-centered it’s kind of jarring.

  • Amal Ali

    While I appreciate the group had to vent, there was a strong element of performative rage and projection from LaLa & with James ranting silly retorts left to run rampant it really took out the opportunity to explore genuine raw emotions more meaningfully which may've given room for some honest answers. Those two really ruined the reunion for me as they sucked the attention when they had the least to contribute. I wish Arianna healing. Tom sealed any notion of having decency with his T-Shirt comment & Raquel can go find herself somewhere else.

    • Nicole May

    • Amal Ali
      Amal Ali 3 months ago +7

      @Nicole May not sure, perhaps he just saw an opportunity for camera time. It was entirely disproportionate. Ironic he repeated his previous actions were because he was young and has now matured! 🙂
      LaLa didn't have much of a storyline either this season but for acting as if she's the first & only embattled single mother without really showing much about it (legal issues not included) other than policing other's actions & handing out judgments. She's risen through the ranks and every time she got a got a bit more prominence she misused it at the expense of someone else e.g Scheena & Brock's early relationship/ Raquel early on. Or in this case Arianna's painful situation.
      If she's not careful she'll end up like Kristen & Stassi with downfall by her own ego & sense of impunity. By focusing on everyone else she deflects from closer examination of her so becomes less interesting however much she shouts. We see you!

    • Sonia Shaw
      Sonia Shaw 3 months ago +5

      James is angry because he looked up to Sandoval and he isn't the man James thought. Not to mention it really isn't nice when a close friend starts boning your ex fiance no matter whether you're with someone else or not. Lala is angry because she is feeling the pain of discovering Randall wasn't who she thought he was and relates to the situation. The both needed to vent. I thought Lala kept holding Sandoval accountable and called him out when he deflected.

    • Amal Ali
      Amal Ali 3 months ago +6

      @Sonia Shaw Heckling Sandoval before he finished a sentence was not holding him accountable but peacocking. I don’t disagree that the impact of their sordid actions reverberated through the group and are awful but it’s more about Arianna, it wasn’t the time to return every point to make it about her.
      What happened to LaLa was awful but she seems to want to play a Jedi mind trick on us as if we’ll forget all she said before & during Randall & how she acted entitled & awful. She takes zero responsibility or accountability that isn’t fake and soon went back on her promises to Scheena & Brock for their wedding attendance after apology to be “HBIC” in Katie’s click probably because she has more prominence in Camera time there than being one of many in the wedding.
      They all play up to Camera to some extent but this was way more than necessary and it’s particularly annoying because they robbed the audience of getting some answers. We learned nothing apart from final Raquel confession.

    • Sonia Shaw
      Sonia Shaw 3 months ago +2

      Lala and Ariana brought the convo back to what they were talking about each time Tom tried taking it off track. He said "it was one time" way too much when they all knew that wasn't true. He answered every question with a lie. Lala was getting her own back because Tom was always lecturing her and acting righteous. I don't think anyone is forgetting about the Randall stuff. It's the fact that Tom lectured everyone about accountability and acted superior when in reality he is just a self obsessed liar. True Tom is "left her tee shirt on" to Ariana, "took your iud out" to Lala, "multiple multiple" in a fake British accent to James - because they weren't buying what he was selling. He got to talk but it was all rubbish and Rachel was just parroting what Tom told her to say, just not very well.

    • Jake Stroll

      Both could be true. Maybe the reason she doesn’t care is because she’s got mental problems. Sometimes depression cause anhedonia where nothing and nobody matters and you even feel outside your own body. That said, it’s still Rachel’s job to ask for help and not devastate her friend like this.

    I find it absolutely hilarious when production claims that Raquel no longer self-identified with her old self and as a result, she was trying on new persona’s ….one of which was Ratchet-mistress-whore, who hooks-up with the entire cast and basically moves into her BFF’s house and takes her “husband.” 😭🤣😭 WTF kind of relatable life journey is that?? 😆 13:24

      I agree she did it out of spite to Tom, maybe she knows he already cheated on her lol😂 or maybe because he didn’t leave Ariana fast enough. I guess there’s lots of possibilities. The other reason could be she wanted to flex, to show Toms been into her a long time and it’s not a quick fling.

      IMO I think this final confession was to get revenge at Tom (him not professing his love for her at the reunion) and at Ariana (because she was getting the support and attention Raquel desires)
      Raquel was loving her new free version of herself with this increased attention from all these men. But then she hooked up with Tom & was attracted not only to Ariana but her life. She wanted to be Ariana… have her man, her spot on the show, HER LIFE!

    Sandavol was only a shell of himself because he was caught and the image he tried to have over the years has crumbled. He was crying for himself, he was not remorseful whatsoever. If there was remorse he would have been more humble and would have not blamed anything on Ariana. He got caught and he feels sorry for himself.

    She's not brave. She's a manipulative sociopath, same with Tom who is also a narcissist. They coached each other so they wouldn't look as bad to the world as they truly are. Now she is having second thoughts and cold feet and doing whatever she can to make herself look better. At first, I felt bad for her and cast Tom as the bad guy (which he is), but she is just as evil. It takes a certain type of person to be able to lie to your best friend for 8+ months about something like this, while actively sharing personal and intimate secrets. She is wolf in sheep's clothing. Also, am I the only one who gets super uncomfortable when she cries on camera? Everything seems STAGED and rehearsed - no wonder she's never won a pageant. I will not believe anything Tom and Ratchet say anymore.

    • Melanie Weicker
      Melanie Weicker 3 months ago +4

      I agree! She wanted people to feel sorry for her so that when this eventually came out she would not look so bad! They were trying to make it seem like Arianna was the bad person, and we should feel bad for both of them, therefore, they fell in love with each other while trying to comfort each other! That definitely didn’t work! We see both of them for who they really are! Narcissistic people who only care about themselves and their image! They’re not sorry for what they did. They’re just sorry they got caught! Scumdaval will definitely be back next season because he wants to paycheck and will think he can find a way for viewers to forgive him! Ratchet will only be back if her parents say she’s allowed, and if she does come back, it will be with an agenda! The only problem is, she’s a bad actress, so we’ll see straight through it!

  • i am the news

    17:27 I don’t think Raquel is brave; She has proven, time and again, that thinking isn’t her strong suit, and so she say’s and does as she’s told…. I believe that her team told her to throw Sandavol under the bus, so that Ratchet can be seen as a sympathetic character; and hopefully, keep her job on the show.

    I think this affair started way before they’re saying.. like when Rachel was still with James. She stayed with him for quite awhile after the rage texts which is when she said she and James stopped being intimate. I think the rage texts weren’t the only reason she stopped being intimate with James. Sandoval also claims he and Ariana had problems for YEARS. Rachel becomes best friends with Scheana who truly wants to be best friends with everyone because she’s so sweet. Rachel definitely had a plan to set herself up in this group because remember she was a fan. She used James, hooked up with Tom, used Scheana as an in to get closer to the group. She and Tom are diabolical! TOXIC NARCISSISTS!!! Schwartz knew about this longer than he’s letting on too! Remember when he told Brittany that he would cover for Jax? Schwartz needs to be his own man and not be so dependent on others. He does seem like a sweet person who needs to get the hell away from Sandoval!

      IMO Ariana was on speakerphone & Raquel had just told Ariana she had been having the affair w/Tom for over 7 months.
      At that point Scheana being shocked and justifiably upset grabbed the phone from Raquel’s hand and her fingernail clipped Raquel’s eyebrow. It was not a punch & it was not intentional. It was an accident. Raquel has a natural dark area under her eye which can be seen in previous photos when Raquel is without makeup!

    As someone who found her fiancé 2 weeks before the wedding humping a 15 year old (he was 30) which had been going on for months, I totally get where Ariana is coming from. I thought my story was bad but bringing your side piece around while your life partner is at her grandmother's funeral is just beyond disgusting, disgusting is too mild a word. Oddly enough though the random lines Tom is chucking at Ariana like "she kept her top on during sex, that's hot!" My ex said the same sort of things to me, clearly cheaters read the same rule book 😅 when I met the girl to get the truth she didn't cry once, she wasn't exactly happy but she wasn't bubbling her eyes out either the way Rachel is. I can only assume Rachel is crying not because she's sorry for what she did she's sorry she got caught and has humiliated herself and Ariana infront of the world. She isn't sorry, the fact she entertained the idea of being a 3rd wheel in the relationship says it all, she's an extra special kind of warped, the type of girl you want to run a mile from. Tom as far as I'm concerned is a predator, not a perverted predator but a predator in the sense of he likes girls he can control and Rachel was easy pickings. Ariana is her own woman who can stand on her own two feet, Kristen although bat crap crazy and not perfect while with Tom she flip flopped between doing whatever Tom wanted to refusing to tow the line he was trying to manufacture infront of the cameras. He's a master manipulator and found himself a little girl who doesn't know when she's being manipulated and once the penny finally dropped she chucked Tom under the bus and revealed it all in her final interview 😊 Tom deserves to lose it all everything about him is fake and I hope his next GF goes into the relationship with one eye open every night when they go to bed.

    Tom’s response shows the signs of problems in their relationship. Things that were never said and the catalyst to go outside his relationship with someone so close in the circle.
    I always question relationships that start on the show. Which helps the storyline. but then you wonder how Real the relationships are.
    Both Tom and Ariana, had non-monogamous scenes which questions what type relationship they really had. An opening, or a crack that allows others to enter.
    Why buy a house together. Was that like having a baby to mend the relationship or a financial decision ?

    I think Tom truly did a number on Raquel. Truly. It's almost like with all her lies and demoralizing behavior this season, she started acting like him! He changed her. And obviously not in a positive way!! Then, seeing her come clean about the timeline and finally showing some emotion, it felt as if she was more herself. The best thing for her well-being is to 🏃‍♀️ far, far away!!
    I actually went through something VERY similar to this situation where my best friend of 4 years slept with the guy I thought I'd marry. We lived together and everything! I found letters from her to him about their 1st time sleeping together in OUR bed during Christmas time...I feel every emotion, every tear that Ariana sheds, I really do.

    Tom really needs to go read up on what a narcissist is since he's so adamant on not being one. He absolutely is. I lived with a narcissist for quite somd time and the trauma it gives you is.. insane. Gaslighting is a narcissist's best friend, and Tom has had his for years.
    Will i feel sorry for saying that Tom is worse than Jax? No, I don't think so. Especially after going back to watch the entire show once season 10 started wrapping up, just to look at things from a different perspective.
    In all seriousness, both Tom and Raquel needs help with their mental states, especially as being on a high profile television show doesn't exactly help whatever underlying issues they have

  • Pat Riot

    If Raquel's parents always had extreme control over her, then it's understandable that she doesn't have normal reactions and supresses emotional pain. It appears she's been told what to do so long her life has evolved as a stage act, rather than true growth. As stoic as she appears, she is emotionally fragile and gullible. Tom had her convinced Ariana knew he was unhappy and talked about breaking up. She appeared extremely deceptive when asking Ariana if she still loved Tom, but I think she really wanted to know for herself and didn't get the response she expected. At that point, the mountain was too high to climb to confess, but she would have brought that to Tom to end it. Being told what to do her whole life, she let Tom "manage" her.... I don't think she's crazy or a narcissist, just someone who can't access her emotions and doesn't understand the depth of how much she has hurt her friends. They all know she's delicate emotionally, thus why Ariana and Scheana protected her, and Tom tried to elevate her confidence.

    To be honest, I'm still upset that Raquel was willing to go after Schwartz (or so we thought), and most of the group thought that was okay. Where was the outrage about that? With the exception of Lala and JK, most of them didn't stick up for Katie and she had been with Schwartz and was actually still MARRIED to him when Raquel was setting her sights on him. Sheana should have not been so on board for that like she was. That was infuriating to sit through.

    Rachel has a very strange and disturbing level of detachment towards the things that she has done. It's very indicative of a personality disorder. Her smiling when she was saying how it happened in mexico...she definitely needs alot of mental help...and tom is just a narcissistic master manipulator. He treated Arianna as if he hated her for doing nothing. I pray these 2 feel everything 10 fold.

      Watching this episode was extremely painful because (to me) it showed how much trauma she has. She is completely dissociated and you can tell by her vacant stare, and incongruent actions such as laughing about Mexico. She grew up in the pageant world which is quite brutal, and where you deal with issues by detaching and glossing and moving on. I don't think that she's the brightest cookie in the first place, but I wouldn't be shocked if she was the victim of sexual abuse. I understand the outrage towards her; but the behavior on this episode was dee.sgus.ting-- especially coming from Lala and Tom.

  • Kelsey

    They should have had a segment with just Ariana, Tom and Raquel. The screaming of other people interjecting totally ruined the interview because Tom and Raquel never had a chance to explain. Raquel was never in a safe place to tell her side to the story until after the reunion. Lala and James have their own skeletons to worry about. People were bullying Raquel who was already down knowing damn well Ariana had been in the same position with Kristen.

    I’m curious to know why there was not one question about the psychological abuse that is gaslighting. The whole hook of watching the episodes back was witnessing that, and yet again, Bravo ignores the most abusive apart (we can only assume for their own benefit as they think Tim will boost their ratings next season). You can’t keep facilitating that abuse (and excusing it by broadcasting it without challenge) and think you can stay on the right side of history. Alex needs domestic abuse awareness training if he’s going to continue to steer this ship.

    Tom’s t-shirt comment about he and A having sex was despicable!!!! We know she had body issues. But in my experience t-shirt on means “ugh make it quick” - that HE wanted sex with HER and took what he could get. He is absolute trash. He should’ve sat there and taken every comment just for A’s sake. Instead he made it worse. He’s so gross.

    • Lesia Grigoras

      I know but sexless relationships lead to cheating. He tried but didn’t work. I know my husband doesn’t like it when I wear a shirt he is a gentleman but he doesn’t see me as defective as I see myself. He is visual. I’m not justifying Tom’s actions. They’re horrendous. Really. He should have broken up with her in a respectful way. But what does Ariana think? Is a sexless relationship really sustainable for years?

    • Linnea
      Linnea 3 months ago +6

      ​@Lesia Grigoras it was more than that. They should've broken up a long time ago as their future goals looked so vastly different, but Ariana chose to stay with him because she loved him whereas Tom, in my opinion that isn't really based on anything but speculation and outside view, stayed with her because it was comfortable. From the beginning he's had this "I'll change her mind" mentality, for example with kids and with marriage where it's like he didn't take Ariana's "No" as an actual no. That's very telling and is something that not just love can overcome. They should've both left for their own sakes, but when there's a power imbalance, it's difficult to do so. (I say power imbalance as Ariana has out loud admitted that she is depressed and has low self esteem regarding certain things, which automatically puts her at a disadvantage in certain aspects. People with depression are easy to manipulate, I say as someone with depression. Unfortunately.)

      @Lesia Grigoras Well to be fair, how the hell was he "trying" to make it work while he was fucking Raquel all those months...please. I have no doubt it was going on longer than even Raquel confessed. You can't be trying in your relationship while the other is having a torrid affair. I have no respect for people who cheat - you aren't happy, then get out of the relationship if you have any love/respect for your partner. I know about toxic and unhappy relationships, I had one (my marriage) and left. It's not like they had even kids to consider.

  • Stacy J

    Here’s my take:
    I believe in Tom Sandy’s actions, starting back when it did, he completely USED Tom Schwartz as his scapegoat in order for anything to happen between Rachel & Tom. I also believe the opening of Tom Tom 100% without a doubt, was a huge part or reasoning for their marriage break-up. Think about this: as long as Sandy kept the focus or pressure on the “newly budding romance” as a smokescreen, so they were no doubt hiding in plain sight, & nobody would really even know. Do I believe Rachel had this planned for a while? ABSOFRIGGINLUTELY! Don’t get too comfy, Rachel, as we’ve all seen Tom do this before…how many times? He’s a “grown” male who believes he’s everything & everyone bows at his “super star status” like he really is something….he’s a wanna be 1970’s wanna be porn star complete with the douchebaggery ‘stache! Rachel AND Tom deserve each other. Ariana, you are absolutely gorgeous, your mind is full, your heart is BEAUTIFUL! Live life to its fullest! Your Prince…no, your KING, is awaiting the arrival of his QUEEN, Ariana! Much love from Michigan…💜🤍💛

    There’s nothing Raquel could have done that would have pleased everyone. If she cried, everyone would say she was trying to victimize herself. I think-all things considered- she was very brave for walking into that room and taking accountability and for eventually being honest about what happened. She did a horrible thing and carried on with it for way too long, but I think it’s time people back off. She’s apologized and she’s getting help. Let her be.

    I disagree that Raquel “finally told the truth.” 🙄 In her final interview, she kept lying, and then she would be re-asked the same question, and then she would give a different answer (supposedly the truth). 🙄. So, i think we still got half truths. And her and Tom have other secrets still. And I do NOT believe Tom n Raquel are currently a couple, nor will they be a couple in the future. He is just not that into her. He only said he was in love (at the reunion), so she would help keep his secrets. She’s too young and dumb to realize this.

    Hopefully what Tom and Rachel did to the people close to them, particularly Ariana will not be lost in the justifiable anger in response to it. These two unrepentant creeps lived a lie and created a false reality for others, causing those close to them to lose trust in their own judgement & very existence. The length & level of this betrayal is off the charts cruelty. For Lisa to defend that in any way is very upsetting.

    I want first dibs at producing Tom and Raquel's spinoff show. I will call it "Most Hated" but it would be more tongue-in-cheek because how can anyone really hate a Bambi-eyed B!tch?? I loved Raquel this season. She also handed the barrage very well. She brought her reality A-game and it was a game-changer! She started off shy and timid and really blossomed into a REALITY TV STAR. People didn't see her coming. I hope she has a really good agent... Because I think people really liked that she turned this show upside down when it was becoming predictable. I mean how many times are we going to watch Scheana get married and Katie yell at Tom?? They should be working on HER contract rather than recapping "secrets." She's the prettiest villianess on TV and she wasn't even trying. She was simply following her heart and afterall, she and Tom are in love. We have to see the rest of the story.

    I want to know how Schwartz got a free ride as usual. Why did he not have to answer for his actions for standing back why Raquel attacked his ex and her mother, what she did was in tasteful as hell and he to stand around and defend it was sick. Also how he has known all along yes he is friends with Sandoval but he was suppose to be friends with the other cast as well. FYI the point of having friends is for them to tell you when you are wrong not to be a yes man for their ego!

    At this point years of Rachel’s expressionless and shocking lack of understanding most simple things and inability to speak naturally and clearly, it’s so obvious she likely has a developmental delay of some sort. Obviously not inappropriately throwing out a diagnosis, just making an observation. It’s starting to feel dirty hating on her and surprised all the deciders/ producers involved even allowed her to remain on the cast this long with something so clearly off… No excuses for what she did of course regardless. But hard to watch her attempt to speak, listen, etc…

    I would have loved to have seen Sheena and Raquel on stage together. I don't think they went after Rachel hard enough they were too easy on her and I don't know why. We had Ariana call her several disgusting words and James and Lala speak up when Rachel called them out on having sex one time but she really didn't get it like she should have. And maybe she know would have done that. I don't know what the deal was maybe because she was going to a mental health facility when she should have been going to alcoholic facility but for some reason everybody went easy on her. Maybe she wasn't confronted enough because they thought it would take her too long to answer even a simple question with the way she talks.
