Tom Sandoval is taking some time to work on himself while shocking affair allegations swirl around him.
Unless you’ve been living under a literal rock for the last week, you’ve been tracking the sordid story of Tom’s months-long affair with Vanderpump Rules co-star Raquel Leviss. The 39-year-old restaurant owner had been in a nearly-decade-long relationship with fellow reality TV vet Ariana Madix, of course. But that ended in an awful flourish days ago once his behind-the-scenes romance with Raquel was revealed.
Most recently, Tom has taken to social media to apologize for his actions. (Err, for the second time.) And now, it also seems as though Sandoval is working on himself. That won’t make good on the hurt he’s caused Madix through the unsettling infidelity, of course. But at least it’s a start for him to theoretically carve out a healthier future…

On Tuesday afternoon, TMZ published pics showing the Tom Sandoval & The Most Extras frontman walking through a parking lot and into an office park in El Lay. According to that outlet, the building he went into is apparently “home to many therapy and psychotherapy offices.”
Curious about the sighting, the news org asked an insider about it. That source claimed Tom was going to see one of those therapists. In fact, Sandoval supposedly spent “about two hours” with the professional on Tuesday. And even more notably, the source alleges Tuesday’s therapy sit-down “isn’t a new thing” for the Bravo star. In fact, to hear the insider tell it, Sandoval has evidently been talking things out with a therapist for a while now.
That’s probably a good thing, TBH. Tom is in the middle of a social media s**t storm right now and talking it through with a pro is not a bad course of action. Then again, it would have been even better had he not cheated at all, and just, like, broken up with Madix months ago if he felt the relationship had run its course. But that’s just our take on the matter…
Anyways, you can see Sandy’s therapy walk-up pics from Tuesday afternoon for yourself at the link HERE.
Speaking of therapy, Raquel mentioned it in the scandal statement she just delivered on social media, too. As Perezcious readers will recall, while apologizing to Ariana for the awful affair, the 28-year-old Bravolebrity wrote that she is “speaking to a counselor” about her “patterns of codependency and addiction to being and feeling loved.” In turn, Leviss lamented, she’s hoping to use that professional assistance to “make healthier choices” in her own life:
“I am reflecting on my choices, speaking to a counselor and I am learning things about myself such as my patterns of codependency and addiction to being and feeling loved. I have sought emotional validation through intimate connections that are not healthy without regard for my own well-being, sometimes negatively affecting others and often prioritizing the intimate connection over my friendships. I am taking steps to understand my behavior and make healthier choices.”
Thus, it sounds like Tom and Raquel are both working through things in therapy. There’s undoubtedly a lot of s**t to unpack for these two after their months-long choice to cheat in the way they did. But working with an expert on the fallout is better than not confronting these problems at all, ya know? Still, they probably each have a long road ahead, TBH.

As for Ariana, there’s no word on whether she’s talking things out on a therapy couch. It sounds like she’s getting a TON of support from pals, though. Which she deserves! She was thrust into an awful and undeserved situation with this. Friend support doesn’t absolve the infidelity, but it has been nice to see #TeamAriana rally around her. Just saying!
Thoughts, Perezcious readers??
