On Friday at a performance at the Scheanagans with Sheana Shay On the podcast, Ariana admitted that she “wasn’t listening, she was reading summaries,” laying it all on the table:
“Bethenny actually upset me more by the things that were said.”
Ariana said the 52-year-old doesn’t know “what the heck” she’s talking about, adding that she needs to “do more research” into Rachel’s affair with her ex-boyfriend. And something she particularly didn’t like was the fact that Bethenny tried to paint the scandal as not as damning as Ariana and Tom weren’t married and didn’t have children together — but that Vanderpump Rules Star has a completely different opinion given their NINE-year relationship:
“In many states [he was my common law spouse]. I find that hurtful in relation to other women in relationships who don’t have children. Maybe they can’t have children, or don’t want children, or don’t want to get married. The relationships of these people are no less important as a result. She should know better than to say that about anyone.”
Yeah, that was kind of a low blow on Bethenny’s part…
Ariana also defended that she still lives in the same house with her Schwartz & Sandy’s co-owner, whom the pair bought together in 2019, and explains she won’t be “pissing off” about the affair:
“I was never someone who came for money. I know how quickly this passes. I take care of myself.”
She added that she’s “not rich” like “Scrooge McDuck,” noting:
“I’m paying a mortgage. It is expensive. A lot of people on the internet seem to think I’m making money right now. I have many places that the money has to go before I get it [it].”
However, she has hired “financial advisors, a lawyer and an accountant.” [and] all sorts of people who help make the best decisions.”

As for the day-to-day hassles at their home together, Ariana shared:
“I have a pretty good set-up. My room is like my little apartment. … I stay in my own little zone.”
However, she keeps the door “closed just in case”.
“I sleep a lot easier at night and don’t care if he comes in the door. … Yes, we’re in the same house, but I don’t have to think about it [him].”
Poor Ariana. She already has so much to deal with! But we’re glad she’s prioritizing herself. Thoughts, Perezcious readers? Share it below in the comments!
