After watching some episodes of Vanderpump Rules, it’s easy to think many of the people who work for Lisa Vanderpump at SUR don’t have a lot of other options. But that’s not the case with Ariana Madix, the girlfriend of Tom Sandoval. She graduated from Flagler College in Florida and earned a degree in Theatre and Broadcast Communications. Another thing most VPR fans don’t know is that Ariana is funny. When she moved to New York she “became a part of the sketch comedy world” working with College Humor, MTV, and ESPN. She’s appeared on several sitcoms including Dads on FOX and Anger Management on FX.
When not playing mean girl Ariana on TV (intentionally excluding Lala from the SUR clique), Ariana is playing dirty in films. She landed the role of Raine, a sexy female casino dealer in the film Dirty Dealing 3D with Michael Madsen and C. Thomas Howell. Ariana is forced to play dirty against a casino owner in order to do good. Vanderpump Rules airs Mondays at 9pm on Bravo.
