He claimed that there was a lack of intimacy with his then-girlfriend Ariana Madix that led him into Raquel's arms. Needless to say, many fans weren't impressed.

A rumor began circulating online that Tom might get fired because Bravo didn't greenlight the Howie interview. So, far the rumor appears to be just that — a rumor.
