Ariana Madix is ​​still suffering from her longtime partner Tom Sandoval’s cheating scandal, which is making headlines. The ‘Vanderpump Rules’ star ended her 10-year relationship with Sandoval following his affair with co-star Raquel Leviss, and now fans are looking to show their support.

Madix and her friend Katie Maloney have been working on a new business venture, a sandwich shop called Something About Her, for over a year. In her Instagram storySharing a photo to the Instagram account Something About Her, her former co-star Kristen Doute urged friends to “show love for Katie and Ariana” — and now they really can.

On March 8, 2023, Maloney revealed that a “cool” announcement would come just in time for International Women’s Day. “So many of you have been asking, ‘How do we support Ariana? How do we support the sandwich shop?'” Maloney said, noting that Madix was “overwhelmed” by all of the love and support she’s received from fans.

Hours later, a link for Something about their merch appeared on Maloney’s Instagram story. The merch line includes sweatshirts, t-shirts, hats and phone cases featuring the upcoming restaurant’s logo and other designs. Prices range from $18.99 to $49.99 and the proceeds will likely go a long way toward opening the long-awaited store.

A message on the shop link describes Something About Her as “an undeniably charming sandwich shop and wine bar coming soon.”

Fans can’t wait to support Ariana Madix & Katie Maloney’s sandwich shop business

“Vanderpump Rules” fans have caught the early planning stages of the sandwich shop after watching Maloney and Madix’s ex-boyfriends Tom Schwartz and Sandoval compete to open their newest bar, Schwartz & Sandy’s.

Fans have taken to social media to say they would like revenge for Madix.

“I would like a revenge season for Katie and Ariana where Something About Her beats Schwartz & Sandy by far.” A fan tweeted.

“I can’t wait for Ariana and Katie to open a sandwich shop and become more successful than the Toms.” another agreed.

“Can we talk about how Katie and Ariana, who are finally getting their way after standing up for the Toms for more than a decade, are opening a sandwich shop called ‘Something About Her’ after both Toms hooked up with Raquel have. Really, the marketing couldn’t be better.” another intervened.

Katie Maloney revealed that she and Ariana Madix are still working on the sandwich shop’s finances

Maloney has spoken about the sandwich shop in recent interviews. When continuing her You’re Gonna Love Me podcast, Maloney said she and Madix were still working on “the legal stuff” before moving on to the “fun” aspects of their business. “We’re fundraising, we’re doing it all at the moment,” she said in November 2022.

In an interview in February 2023 on Kristen Doute’s Podcast “Sex, Love, and What Else Matters” Maloney said there was still work to be done before the sandwich shop could open. While securing a location in West Hollywood, the two women have been working with consultants “to really outline the business plan down to the smallest detail [and] the budget,” she said.

At Dear Media’s Trade Secrets With Jason Tartick Podcast, Maloney said she and Madix got a little sticker shock while researching her budget. “I mean, we have spreadsheets on spreadsheets on spreadsheets,” she said in March 2023. “Like how much we need a budget for toilet paper each month. So we have numbers. And it started, and when they first gave us a number, I think it was over 700,000.”

She noted that the high six-digit number was on the high end for “a complete build out” of a space that requires plumbing, a kitchen, and ADA compliance.

“That was like the top and we were like, damn,” she said. “But then when they broke it, we were like, okay, well, I think you need to prepare for the worst … so you need to give yourself a runway, but also some working capital.”

Maloney added that once things start to “groove” financially, things will move forward.

Maloney detailed the duo’s vision on an episode of the Bachelor Happy Hour podcast, teasing that the restaurant will have a unique, romantic “vibe” and offer brands from female-fronted companies.

“We’re about supporting women and women’s businesses and products,” Maloney said in May 2022, noting that she wants to partner with “a woman-owned brewery or wine brand” as well as other “products or candles” in the shop for sale.
