Ariana Madix reacts to Raquel Leviss’ ‘Scandoval’ interview

Let’s not be mani-petty.

Ariana Madix wants “Vanderpump Rules” fans to know she has more important things to worry about than Raquel Leviss’ bombshell “Scandoval” interview.

“I don’t pay attention to any of that,” she told a paparazzo while leaving a Los Angeles nail salon Wednesday.

While Madix seemed to be in good spirits despite Leviss having a months-long affair with her now-ex-boyfriend Tom Sandoval, the Something About Her co-founder declined to spill any more tea ahead of the Bravo reality show’s Season 10 reunion taping Thursday.

“Bye! Next time,” Madix, clad in a pink crewneck sweatshirt and white sweatpants, told the videographer before getting in her car and driving off.

While the “Buying Back My Daughter” actress, 37, denied having any interest in what Leviss, 28, had to say, “Pump Rules” fans were gobsmacked when the former pageant queen openly answered numerous questions about her dalliance with Sandoval, 40, during her own trip to an LA nail salon.

“I don’t know where our relationship is going to be,” Leviss told a photographer while sitting alone outside the establishment earlier Wednesday.

“We’re just kind of trying to get through these next few steps and trying to, you know, make amends, hear everybody out.”

Leviss emphasized that she wanted to patch things up with Madix and her other castmates and acknowledged that “a lot of people are angry” at her and Sandoval.

The reality star, who went makeup-free, also clarified that she and the TomTom co-founder were not “putting a label” on their romance and “taking a break for now.”

Leviss went on to blab that her entanglement with Sandoval “started off as a friendship” before turning into “something more” — despite his nearly 10-year relationship with Madix, with whom he shares a house.

She then teased that the “Vanderpump Rules” cast would go into more detail about the cheating scandal during the highly anticipated reunion.

Page Six previously reported that Leviss had been ghosting Sandoval amid the drama.

But days before the silence began, a source revealed to us that the lovers had shared an on-camera smooch while filming at her North Hollywood apartment on March 4.

A second insider told us at the time that things remain “complicated” between Sandoval and Leviss.

Madix broke off her nearly 10-year relationship with the bar owner when she discovered a sexually explicit video of Leviss on his phone while watching his cover band perform in West Hollywood on March 1.

Madix then learned that Leviss and Sandoval had been having an affair since at least July 2022.

The pair made matters even worse by waiting nearly a full week to publicly apologize to Madix.

Madix broke her own silence on the matter on March 16, sharing on Instagram, “To say I have been devastated and broken is an understatement.

“I know that I am not in this alone,” she added. “What doesn’t kill me better run.”

More recently, Madix blatantly shaded Leviss, telling the paparazzi when asked about her co-star, “I don’t know who you’re talking about.”

“Vanderpump Rules” airs Wednesdays at 9 p.m. ET on Bravo.
