As the tea heats up between Tom Sandoval and his Vanderpump Rules co-stars Raquel Leviss and Ariana Madix, tensions are beginning to boil over.

Who is Ariana Madix skinny-dipping with in the midseason trailer of 'Vanderpump Rules'?

Ariana was supporting her man Tom at his concert when she discovered a series of NSFW texts between him and Raquel. Needless to say, she was devastated.

In the latter half of Season 10, she confronts Tom about his infidelity. During their heart-to-heart, Tom says he wished that they had fought harder for their relationship. Ariana, on the other hand, is over it. This becomes clear later in the trailer when she’s caught frolicking buck-naked with a man that many assume is her new love interest.

The controversial clip of Ariana and Brett leaves a lot of room for speculation, but Brett was quick to clear the air. In a TikTok, Brett confirmed that he and Ariana are just friends. And because he isn’t interested in women, it’ll stay that way.

“It’s me, hi. I am the one naked in the pool with Ariana and I am gay, so I’m glad we could clear that up,” he said in the video. He went on to encourage viewers to tune in to see what happens next.

In the comments, he clarified that the skinny-dipping scene was filmed before Ariana found out about Tom and Raquel, so it’s pretty clear that the clip was only included in the trailer to stir up some drama. And it definitely worked …

New episodes of Vanderpump Rules air Tuesdays on Bravo at 9 p.m. EST!
