Tom Sandoval attacks journalist for daring to speak out
Oh, how the moderately powerful have fallen. Once a well-loved and motivated member of the Vanderpump Rules family, he is now struggling to rebuild his now badly battered image.
But what we won’t do Tom Sandoval is attack more women. I’d say Tom hit his quota by around 2027 while trying to defend himself against a huge community of women rallying around Ariana Madix. Hey baby, that’s fame, that’s what you wanted.
Because of the theme and the boldness of its players, a large population has invested in Scandoval. Celebrities have commented. Fans literally rode it. And as the drama unfolds in the media, the writers also share their thoughts. Because… it’s their job.
Stephanie McNeal, editor at Glamor, wrote one Piece on Tom. It didn’t address his lack of a moral compass, nor did he question his choice of footwear. Stephanie was more worried about what Tom had done to white nail polish lovers across the country. And that, my friends, is it Really let him go.
It’s not about the paint
The lows go deeper I guess. After the article was published, Sandoval took to his Insta Stories to call out Stephanie and question her integrity as a writer. Really sir? He limited himself to posting screenshots of her Instagram page and asking how she could even call herself a “journalist”.
In one of the photos, Tom shared this hot shot: “How dare you call yourself a ‘journalist’ when you’re writing such a disgusting, hateful and biased article? ‘reins’ [sic] of terror? I’m human and you don’t know me.” Wow. There is so much to do here. I wonder if he wrote that on a 2001 Nokia Flip phone. Tom has appeared on a TV show again and twirled around and you don’t want anyone to write about it? That’s not how it all works.
Let’s play: How dare you call yourself a scientist?
Tom continued to berate Stephanie by posting the definition of a journalist’s role. He emphasized “researching and writing informational messages” as if he had just eaten. Which one of you will tell him that “singer” is someone who can hold a note? Also the definition of “actor” would be a person with the ability to express true feelings in front of the camera.
It seems Tom is indeed going through difficult times and we don’t want anyone to suffer unduly. But if the results of huge ratings and gaining a higher profile cause him to pounce on those writing about the downfall he’s caused, it might be time for a break.
Surely he didn’t want to react so violently to an article about white nail polish. And Tom will hopefully apologize to Stephanie for his outburst. Because a writer is probably not someone you want to piss off.
You can see Tom and his white nail polish in part 2 of the Vanderpump Rules season 10 reunion. It airs May 31st at 9/8c on Bravo.
TELL US – Do you think Tom has any regrets about cranking up the journalist? Why would Tom be so upset about an article about nail polish?
