For anyone who hasn’t been paying attention, Tom Sandoval hasn’t exactly won over any new fans this year. Thanks to his salacious affair with Rachel Leviss earlier this year, the Vanderpump Rules star is one of the most despised TV personalities today. That includes both fans and former costars. But according to former BFF Jax Taylor, Sandoval might just have one more person in his corner now.
In a recent interview with E! News, Taylor revealed that he recently had an opportunity to speak with Sandoval. “I do finally get the chance to have a talk with Tom, you’ll see,” Taylor told E! News October 26. “Three weeks ago, four weeks ago is when we talked for the first time after all this. I was trying to figure out how I was going to approach Tom, because I haven’t seen him in such a long time. He’s called me out on so many different things after this all happened.”
“I think you have to hit rock bottom to work your way back up,” the former Vanderpump Rules star said. “Take it from somebody who knows. I think he has a way, I don’t know if he’s going to figure it out, but I hope so. I hope the best for him. You always wanna see people do well.”
Not Very BFF’s
Taylor has been a vocal critic of Sandoval in the past. Despite their shared history together, Taylor has not been afraid to let his displeasure with Sandoval’s actions be heard.
Back in July, Taylor and Sandoval weren’t exactly on the path to reconciliation. “I think he’s going through something,” Taylor told Us Weekly on July 11. “I don’t want to say midlife crisis, but he’s definitely going through something. He’s had a little bit of a diva mentality on the show, where he kind of thinks nothing could touch him, and I think he kind of bit off a little more than he can chew.”
“His tone-deafness and self-unawareness and selfishness is just on another level. I think something’s going on upstairs. I think he’s got a few screws loose, personally,” said Taylor.
Regardless of how Taylor has felt about Sandoval in the past, it’s clear that the two have begun the process to put the past behind them.
Tom Sandoval’s Redemption Arc?
As 2023 winds down, Sandoval has attempted to restore some credibility back to his name. Sandoval made a marine-themed appearance on The Masked Singer. His brief stint on the show gave him a chance to begin to change the narrative. Only time will tell if he’ll be able to win over his harshest critics.
In another attempt to prove his desire to seek forgiveness, Sandoval has most recently appeared on the Fox show Special Forces: World’s Toughest Test. In the show, celebrities are put to the ultimate endurance test by completely physically demanding challenges.
“The whole country is pi**ed at me,” Sandoval reveals in the show. “I had an affair and I want to take a beating.”
