Lisa Vanderpump refused to comment on whether she knew about Tom Sandoval and Raquel Leviss’ affair before it became public. The “Vanderpump Rules” executive producer Alex Baskin teased a “shocking” season 10 reunion that could impact whether the cast continues with the show. Ariana Madix, who split from Sandoval after learning of the affair, said she didn’t think Vanderpump knowingly protected him.

Lisa Vanderpump refuses to address speculation that she knew about Tom Sandoval and Raquel Leviss’ affair before it was made public, ahead of a shocking revelation teased for the end of “Vanderpump Rules” Season 10.

Lisa Vanderpump, star of Bravo’s Vanderpump Rules, did not address rumors that she knew of Tom Sandoval and Raquel Leviss’ affair months before it was revealed. Speaking at an FYC event in Hollywood, she and executive producer Alex Baskin discussed the upcoming Season 10 reunion, and Baskin teased a “shocking” twist. However, Vanderpump declined to give any spoilers, joking to Page Six: “OK, I’ll tell you — it’s me shagging Andy [Cohen]!”

Ariana Madix, who is at the center of what has been dubbed “Scandoval,” recently told the Call Her Daddy podcast she did not believe Vanderpump was aware of Sandoval’s affair with Leviss. Vanderpump is in business with Sandoval as a co-owner of the bar TomTom.

Vanderpump admitted it is tough to navigate the current divide among her cast as she feels like a “mother” to most of them. A loud portion of viewers were displeased with her approach to a one-on-one discussion with Sandoval that aired in the explosive finale. She said: “A lot of people criticized me and said, ‘Why didn’t I jump on him and chastise him and berate him?’ But everybody had done that already. He knew that, OK? So yeah, I was trying to say, ‘Calm down, let’s try and look forward.'”

Meanwhile, Madix has made strides since dumping Sandoval, who she had dated for nearly a decade, after discovering his romance with Leviss. Vanderpump praised her for living her best life and said: “That’s why we went to the White House Correspondents’ Dinner together in our gowns and everything. I was like, ‘Come on, let’s go! Let’s show the world that you’re still kicking butt.'”

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