Ariana Madix scored a major gig with Lifetime Movies Network. This comes amid the Vanderpump Rules’ cheating scandal involving her ex-boyfriend Tom Sandoval. She will star opposite Meagan Good in a new thriller. Keep on reading for new details.

Ariana Madix scores post-Scandoval gig

Per Deadline, Ariana Madix is embarking on a new career in lieu of “Scandoval.” This comes as good news to fans of “Team Ariana.” She will star in the new Lifetime Movie film Buying Back My Daughter alongside Meagan Good. The movie is about a mother who tries to get her teenage daughter back after she was human trafficked through a website.

She finds out that her daughter ended up on an escort website. Meagan has a solid relationship with Lifetime Movies and is the producer of this movie. She previously produced the films Death Saved My Life and Love by the 10th Date. This is Ariana’s first acting gig. However, she’s used to living her life like a daytime drama.

Ariana Madix ended her nine-year relationship with Tom Sandoval. She found out that he was in a months-long relationship with co-star Raquel Leviss. The news broke and the Pump Rules fans thought up the clever name “Scandoval.” Bravo wanted to catch up with the drama and picked the cameras back up.

They’re incorporating the episodes into the midseason. The trailer just dropped for Part 2 of Vanderpump Rules Season 10. Fans can’t stop buzzing about it. Ariana Madix might have the acting chops since she’s already good at expressing herself on camera.

Tom Sandoval’s Lifetime Movie role

Ariana Madix isn’t the only one with a Lifetime Movie credit. Tom Sandoval previously played a creepy handyman in the film, The Wrong Real Estate Agent, starring Vivica A. Fox. The film is part of the popular Wrong movie franchise and is about Julie (Vivica A. Fox) and Maddie (Alaya Lee Walton), who move into a beautiful home that’s settled on several acres of land.

The mother-daughter duo thinks someone’s living with them on their property. Sandoval plays the role of Charles, who gives Maddie the creeps. He works with a fellow handyman named Connor, who ends up in her bedroom and asks her weird questions. Charles tries to play it off and says that it’s part of Connor’s quirkiness.

Both Connor and Charles come off as peculiar in the film. Sandoval also had a minor role in the other Lifetime film, Pregnant and Deadly. However, that shouldn’t surprise fans since Sandoval had the acting bug long before Pump Rules.

Ariana Madix never expressed that interest until this news came out. She modeled for the VPR annual shoot and released a Fancy AF Cocktails book with her ex. Ariana is also launching the sandwich shop Something About Her with co-star Katie Maloney later this year.
