Vanderpump Rules star Ariana Madix is ”thriving” after her split from ex Tom Sandoval.
Madix, 37, who was left heartbroken after Sandoval’s affair with co-star Raquel Leviss, 28, was exposed last month, spoke to social media influencer Farai Bennett for a TikTok videoand told fans she’s doing “great.”
When Farai — who attended the CELSIUS Oasis Coachella party with the star on Friday — asked if she was “doing well” and “thriving,” she confidently replied “yes” with a smile on her face.
‘Don’t wish her well. She’s doing great. What doesn’t kill her they better run away,” Farai added at the end of the video, as Madix replied, “F**k yeah.”
Madix’s statement comes after it was revealed that Leviss had checked into a mental health facility — amid the lingering fallout from her fling with Sandoval.

Farai also wrote in a text overlay on the video, “Ariana wellness check: She’s thriving babes.”
Madix showed off her cleavage in a multi-colored crop top with sheer sleeves and also showed off her tight midriff in her latest “revenge look.”
She paired this with a pair of cut-off denim hot pants that revealed her honed legs, and completed the look with white sneakers, a brown bag and toned shades.
The star was joined by co-star and staunch defender Scheana Shay, 37, and husband Brock Davies, 31.
Ariana also took to her Instagram on Saturday to share a clip of her getting a tattoo. The blonde beauty showed off her toned midriff in a white crop top and matching miniskirt.
She later showed off the new ink on her arm, which depicted an alien head, along with another arm with the same tattoo, tagging Kourtney Kardashian.
It was later reported that Sandoval may have also attended the star-studded festival, though fan footage posted him in Anaheim, California, earlier Friday.
It comes after news that Leviss reportedly chose to enter the voluntary institution before her affair was discovered, reports ET.
A source said: “Raquel and her family decided before the relationship was discovered that she would go to a voluntary mental health facility.
She was supposed to go to the pre-reunion, but decided she wanted to finish her movie commitment. Bravo and production were aware and supported her journey to better mental health.”

Leviss’ representative added that she was not in a facility for substance abuse problems.
Last month, Leviss released a statement revealing that she was analyzing her own behavior and spoke to a counselor after the affair came to light.
She said, “I reflect on my choices, speak with a counselor, and I learn things about myself, such as my patterns of codependency and addiction to being and feeling loved.
“I have sought emotional validation through intimate connections that are not healthy with no regard for my own well-being, sometimes negatively impacting others and often prioritizing the intimate connection over my friendships. I am taking steps to understand my behavior and make healthier choices.’
This comes after Sandoval revealed that he and Leviss put the brakes on their sexual relationship, after their month-long affair came to light in March.
After the recent end of his nine-year relationship with Madix due to his infidelity, the bar owner revealed that they are “kind of taking a break.”
“We don’t label it,” the reality star said on the Howie Mandel Does Stuff podcast.
When asked if they were still friends with benefits by the comedian, 67, Sandoval denied they were still in a relationship.

“Not now,” the rocker, who is in cover band Tom Sandoval & The Most Extras, told listeners, after insisting he and the former pageant queen are still “good friends.”
As for how their relationship blossomed from platonic to intimate, Sandoval opened up about his attraction to Leviss when he and Madix drifted apart after nearly a decade together.
“We were at my house, and I’m locked out of my house and we talk and we kiss,” he recalls. “It was magnetic. We got closer and while we were talking time went on, and we talked closer and closer, and all of a sudden we’re kissing. I felt something I hadn’t felt in so long, emotionally, for instance.’
He went on to explain how he and Madix had taken on their own lives and how the romance between them had grown stale.
