Vanderpump reigns in scandals worse than Scandoval

The cast of Vanderpump Rules are masters of bad behavior. Over the past decade, fans have watched the cast lie, cheat and steal their way through ten seasons. While it’s hard to imagine a scandal bigger than Scandoval’s, there have been a few blows over the years that rival Tom Sandoval and Rachel Leviss’ infamous affair. Here are four Vanderpump Rules scandals that were worse than Scandoval.

When news of #Scandoval first broke, the public was shocked that two people could stoop so low, but Vanderpump Rules fans had seen it all before.

There was a scandal in season 2 that was very similar to Sandoval and Rachel’s affair. Yes, we’re talking about Jax Taylor and Kristen Doute getting together. This is how it went down. Jax had recently broken up with his longtime girlfriend Stassi Schroeder, who happened to be best friends with Kristen. One night, Jax decided to break the bro code and slept with Sandoval’s girlfriend, Kristen. Not cool. What makes matters worse is that this was not an isolated event. They met twice. Once when Sandoval was sleeping in the other room.

Some might argue that Scandoval was worse due to the length of the affair. However, let’s remember some important facts. Kristen lied to Stassi’s face when she confronted her about the affair, while Rachel was never asked about the affair before the news broke. Who knows, maybe she would have gotten in. Emotions were also involved in the Scandoval affair, which doesn’t make the matter right, but does make it more complicated.

In Season 1, Jax admitted that he cheated on Stassi during a trip to Vegas, but wait, it gets worse. Jax got the girl pregnant. Dudeeeee. Viewers were shocked, Stassi was crying and Jax…felt bad? We hope?

Some people will say that Scandoval is much worse because Vegas Girl was a one-time incident, but it is by no means the only time Jax was unfaithful to Stassi. We think the pregnancy aspect makes the affair even more shocking than the Season 10 scandal.

Jax sleeps with faith

In Season 6, Jax proved he wasn’t done with his bad boy behavior when he cheated on his girlfriend Brittany Cartwright with SUR employee Faith Stowers. Now you might be thinking, “How is this worse than Scandoval?” Well, Faith was caring for a 95-year-old woman at the time, and yes, the two met in front of a sleeping old woman. So crazy.

But that’s not all. Jax also said a lot of mean things about Brittany during the meeting that Faith recorded. Lala Kent got hold of the audio and played it for Brittany at a party. Viewers couldn’t listen to the audio, but according to Lala, Jax said he never wanted to marry Brittany or have children. This was a complete shock to Brittany. She was completely devastated and started screaming “red in hell” at Jax. They’re married now and have a kid, so I guess it worked out? Yikes.

Miami girls

On Season 3 of VPR, Kristen attempted to ambush Sandoval at work with a girl he allegedly slept with in Miami. The girl, commonly known as “Miami Girl,” showed up at SUR and tried to get Sandoval to admit that they were together.

Sandoval denied this and left the restaurant. Ariana Madix defended Sandoval for years and publicly said she believed the two never slept together. Guess what? She knew all along that they were actually sleeping together. After Scandoval, Ariana confirmed that Sandoval slept with Miami Girl early in their relationship. The Bravo star said she and Sandoval were not exclusive at the time and that she felt the need to protect the man she would spend the rest of her life with.

We think this Vanderpump Rules scandal rivals Scandoval because the extent of the lies is just so shocking. Sandoval slept with this girl and then gaslighted her, making her look like a liar on TV.
