Tom Sandoval isn’t a fan of the modern dating scene, but he still believes he’ll be living with ex-girlfriend Ariana Madix, 38, in a year, according to Additional.
When asked by the outlet if he thought Ariana would still be his roommate in a year, the 40-year-old Vanderpump Rules star replied, “Probably.”
Tom remained realistic about his relationship with his ex, noting, “We obviously have mutual friends who are on the same show together, so we have to co-exist.”
Despite reports that the disgraced reality TV star had already moved on from Ariana and his mistress Raquel Leviss, the 5’11 drama stirrer also confirmed that he is currently very much single.
After saying, “I’m single, yeah,” the Alien Presence star proved more relatable as he noted how “awkward” modern dating was.

The actor added, “It’s just weird. It feels like a job interview. I normally don’t like dating unless I already know them.’
After previously being linked to Texas influencer Karlee Hale in May following his back-to-back splits from Ariana and Raquel, Tom said he’d rather “hang out with (potential dates) and like their friends, see who they surround themselves with .’
He continued with, “see how they act when they get drunk and go on a date later,” reiterating that he wanted to start out as friends before seeing dating potential in a woman.
In regards to his ex of nine years – who is about to compete on season 32 of Dancing With The Stars, Tom realized that they weren’t going to be friends anytime soon, but they still needed to communicate with each other.
‘It will be a slow process. We will deal with it the best we can,” the Bravo TV personality said.
Unable to escape fan backlash months after Scandoval rocked Vanderpump Rules season 11, Tom also sparked outrage when he brought his latest fling, Tii, 25, to the home he still shares with Ariana after a night of partying.
However, the pair don’t appear to be an official couple, given the scandal-plagued reality star’s telling “I’m single” statement.
His blonde ex-bartender reiterated his “co-existing” statement when she appeared on Scheana Shay’s podcast, saying, “Yes, we’re in the same house, but I don’t have to think about (him).”
She added: “I have a pretty decent setup,” she said. “My room is a bit like my little apartment… I stay in my own little zone.”

While Ariana may have had one of the most dramatic breakups of the year, Tom tried to take advantage of it during his appearance on Special Forces: World’s Toughest Test.
In the trailer, he asks to be beaten up for being unfaithful to his girlfriend for almost a decade.
“The whole world is mad at me,” he declared, adding, “I had an affair and I want to be spanked.”
However, the Tom Sandoval & The Most Extras frontman failed to show a similar sense of understanding after Raquel blocked him on Instagram following a Happy Birthday comment from him, with Tom calling the move “petty.”
