As soon as news of the affair became public on March 3, fans wanted to know how Ariana Madix learned about the scandal.
According to former cast member Kristen Doute, the discovery happened on a night when Sandoval and his band were playing at his bar TomTom. Madix and Doute were there, and at some point, Madix got ahold of Tom’s phone.
“Ariana did have his phone, and she told me she just had this gut intuition to look at it,” Doute shared on her podcast, Sex, Love, and What Else Matters. “So she went into his photos, and he had screen-recorded a FaceTime of him and Raquel masturbating with each other. That’s the truth.”
Sandoval and Madix quickly broke up after that. The two had been together for nine years.

When host Andy Cohen asked if she thought Sandoval and Leviss were “truly in love,” the SUR owner said she didn’t know and hoped to learn more details during the reunion show. However, she said she found it “shocking” that the affair went on for “a long time.”
A source told Us Weekly that Sandoval and Leviss “have fallen hard for each other” and could start officially dating.
“Tom and Raquel are the real deal,” the insider said. “They have confided to pals that it’s love, and they have fallen hard for each other.”
The source added, “It’s no excuse for what they did and the people they hurt, but they see a long-term future together. Only time will tell if their bond can survive the backlash.”
