Vanderpump Rules star Ariana Madix defended her choice to continue to live under the same roof as her ex-boyfriend, Tom Sandoval, five months after their split. 

While navigating the end of their nine-year relationship, following his affair with her friend, Raquel Leviss, the former couple have continued to reside at the Los Angeles home that they purchased for $2 million in 2019.

Despite Bethenny Frankel recently criticizing their awkward living arrangement on her Just B podcast, the reality star stated that she will not ‘f**k [herself] over’ by making any rash decisions.

‘I have never been someone who came from money. I know how quickly that goes away,’ she explained. ‘I’m taking care of myself.’

The TV personality went to on to say that she is ‘not rich’ and has a mortgage and other expenses. 

‘A lot of people on the internet seem to think I’m rolling in money right now. I have a lot of places where that money has to go before I get [it],’ she continued. 

Despite living with Sandoval, the actress made it clear that she keeps their interactions to a minimum. 

‘I have a pretty decent setup,’ she said. ‘My room is kind of like my little apartment… I stay in my own little zone.’ 

Additionally, Madix said she keeps her door ‘locked just in case’ and sleeps ‘easier at night not giving a f**k when he comes in that door.’ 

‘Yes, we’re in the same house, but I don’t have to think about [him],’ the former  bartender told listeners.

Earlier this week, the Buying Back My Daughter star explained why she has not moved in the comment section of one of her recent Instagram posts. 

‘I live in my home that I own while working with my lawyer and financial advisors to navigate the best path forward before uprooting my dog and my elderly cat and causing more trauma for the three of us,’ she told a follower.

Madix is currently in a relationship with her new boyfriend, Daniel Wai, who she describes as having ‘a very grounding, calming, positive energy.’ 

‘He’s very like, always trying to help with things,’ she gushed to Shay. 

The bombshell went on to rave about how he likes to help her with mundane tasks, like calling her credit card company. 

As for their future together, Madix said she is going to continue to do what makes her ‘happy and going in that direction.’ 

‘He is someone who does bring a whole lot of happiness,’ she continued, which prompted Shay, 38, to say she is ‘obsessed’ with Wai. 

Shay went on to say how unlike her pal’s ‘past relationships’ that this one brings out ‘the best’ in Madix.

‘You’re with someone for the first time — that I’ve personally ever seen — who supports you, who’s happy to help you and empower you and also take a backseat and just f**king let you shine,’ Shay praised.
