After what feels like a century of waiting, part one of the Vanderpump Rules season 10 reunion has finally aired – with Lisa Vanderpump getting most of the backlash.

Unsurprisingly, it was a very heated episode as Tom Sandoval came face-to-face with former girlfriend Ariana Madix and his Bravo co-stars for the first time since news of his affair with Raquel Leviss broke.

The reunion filmed less than two weeks after their infidelity became public and it was down to host Andy Cohen to attempt to mediate the day.

Despite the ongoing drama and hurled insults, it was the Sur boss that attracted the most heat as many of her castmates – and viewers watching on from home – alleged that she was defending Tom’s actions throughout the first of the three-part special.

‘I’m ready to sort it out. I love each and every one of you. Don’t forget, the truth is going to come out,’ she initially told Lala Kent, Katie Maloney and James Kennedy as she took her seat at the beginning of the episode – before things immediately became fractured.

Tensions first erupted when Lala branded Tom a ‘dangerous narcissist’ – a comparison that Lisa branded ‘ridiculous’.

‘That is a f**king narcissist,’ Lala fumed. ‘Everyone needs to be warned about this person. This is a dangerous human being.’

‘That’s actually a ridiculous stance to start saying Sandoval is a dangerous person,’ the Real Housewives of Beverly Hills icon replied.

‘I didn’t ask for anyone else’s opinion,’ she spat back. ‘I reject it.

‘He was sleeping next to her, this was his life partner. If he can do that to her, this is a dangerous person.’

Lala also suggested that there were similarities between Tom’s behavior with Raquel and how he acted with Ariana when he was still dating Kristen Doute almost a decade ago – with Lisa stating that she wasn’t part of the show, or friendship group, at that time.

The businesswoman later had an awkward interaction with Ariana, who said that they ‘won’t be as close’ if she continued her working relationship with Tom.

‘What do you expect me to do? I’ve been close to you and supportive of you, and you know I love you very much,’ she questioned.

‘You think I should buy him out of the business?

‘If Tom remains my partner, I don’t want that to affect our relationship.’

‘I don’t expect anything of you,’ Ariana responded icily. ‘I think she knows what is best for her. I’m not someone who is going to be giving Lisa business advice.’
