The dust eventually settles when tensions are high, but the Scandoval catastrophe on Vanderpump Rules shows no signs of slowing down.

The world continues to pour out support for Ariana Madix after she learned that her longtime boyfriend, Tom Sandoval, two-timed her with her ex-best friend, Raquel Leviss.

While Ariana has been extremely strong throughout the whole ordeal, fans want the entrepreneur to focus on the next phase of her life. And of course, she can’t do that without completely cutting off all ties to her former life with Sandy — which includes the the home they bought together.

However, selling a house you own with your ex isn't an easy process. So, do Ariana and Tom still live together? Here’s the full scoop.

Do Ariana Madix and Tom Sandoval still live together?

Ariana and Tom reveal early on in Season 11 of Vanderpump Rules that they decided to cohabitate the home for quite some time, following their breakup. But it's not what you think. Despite the fact that they are (in Taylor Swift's words) never ever getting back together, Tom and Ariana have yet to sell their shared house. And neither had left, prior to the filming for the 2024 season of the Bravo series.

However, in March 2024, Page Six broke the news that Ariana had reportedly (and finally) purchased her own home, and in the Hollywood Hills, no less. According to the outlet, she purchased a $1.6 million home that we're sure literally every other cast member will be just a tad envious of.

It's still unclear what Ariana intends to do with the house she still owns with Tom, but she had said before that she would rather sell their home and split the profits than be bought out. The latter is what Tom has expressed interest in, but for quite a while, they were in a stalemate.

It seems that Ariana is insistent that she will not be the first to leave the house — and viewers have watched that drama play out in Season 11.

"You can't sell the house unless both people agree to sell the house," Ariana says on the show. "But Tom wants to buy me out and stay there and I'm not just gonna pack up my clothes and hitchhike down the road because Tom offered me a measly sum of money."

According to an interview with ExtraTV in November 2024, Tom has officially moved out of the shared home, but how that all unfolds is unclear for viewers. For now, though, it seems that Ariana still owns the house with Tom, even if she bought a new one on her own. Ariana sued Tom at the start of 2024 to move forward with the sale process, as she wants to split the money from the house evenly.

“I own the house,” she told People in January. “I felt like it was the last thing, and I'm just really motivated to be able to get my investment that I made into the house out so that I can make another investment and be able to fully just move on from being tied to that."

Where is Ariana Madix's new house?

Ariana's new home, which boasts views, albeit distant, of the famed Hollywood sign, is a far cry from Valley Village, where she and Tom purchased their first home together. According to the Zillow listing for Ariana's new house, the home has three bedrooms and two bathrooms and was even recently renovated prior to Ariana's purchase.

What does this mean for Ariana and Tom's house, though? That still remains to be seen. And whether Tom agreed to sell it or Ariana finally gave in and allowed him to buy her out, it's clear that Ariana is moving on and moving up.
