Tom Sandoval Compares Vanderpump Rules Cheating Scandal to O.J. Simpson & George Floyd: Analysis & Insights

• Tom Sandoval compares Scandoval to O.J. Simpson and George Floyd in terms of media scrutiny for his affair with Rachel “Raquel” Leviss
• Sandoval defends his actions and says he was in an unhappy place in his life when he cheated on his girlfriend, Ariana Madix
• Sandoval’s co-stars express their opinions on the situation, and Sandoval apologizes for his inappropriate comparison

Here is what happened:

In a recent interview, Tom Sandoval compared the media scrutiny following his affair with costar Raquel Leviss to the 1995 O.J. Simpson trial and the 2020 murder of George Floyd. He stated, “I witnessed the O.J. Simpson thing and George Floyd and all these big things, which is really weird to compare this to that, I think, but do you think in a weird way it’s a little bit the same?” Sandoval expressed surprise at the level of national media attention his affair received.

The Vanderpump Rules stars seem to be dealing with the aftermath of the scandal in a variety of ways. While Sandoval seems to have no regrets about cheating, he appears to be getting more hate than other public figures who have committed serious offenses. Leviss seems to have distanced herself from Sandoval and hasn’t returned his calls since June. She has sought mental health treatment and appears to be remorseful for her actions, seeking to learn from her mistakes and make better choices.

The rest of the cast appears to be feeling the impact of the scandal as well. Some members have distanced themselves from Sandoval, and there is tension among the cast members around the fallout from the affair. Meanwhile, the aftermath of the scandal seems to be playing out in the latest season of Vanderpump Rules, which is currently airing on Bravo.

Sandoval recently issued an apology for his comments in the interview, recognizing that the comparison he made was inappropriate and ignorant. This apology came after social media backlash and a call-out from costar Katie Maloney, who questioned what Sandoval was really trying to say.
