After the shocking news rocked the Bravo universe on Friday afternoon, James took to his Instagram account to share the story with his readers, sharing his thoughts on the scandal as a number of other members of the show, including Lala Kent and Katie Maloney, weighed in.
“Hope you all feel as sick as I do. This explains everything,” James wrote in the caption of his March 3 post on Instagram.
And needless to say, James’ post got a lot of attention.
“Absolutely sickening. Cowards to the CORE,” wrote former cast member Dayna Kathan.
In another comment, Logan Cochran, Ariana’s longtime best friend, spoke out.
“These two are THE most vile subhumans I’ve ever met,” he wrote, via Comments By Bravo on Instagram, along with a puking emoji.
“CORRECT,” James agreed.
And in a post of her own, Lala slammed Sandoval and Raquel as “disgusting,” saying they “trigger” her, potentially giving a nod to her troubled relationship and messy split from her former fiance Randall Emmett, who allegedly cheated on her with a number of women in 2021.
“I’ve been telling y’all! Everyone said I was a ‘bully.’ It’s called YOU TRIGGER ME AND I SEE YOU FOR WHO YOU ARE! I’ve known these two are disgusting from the jump,” she declared.
Lala also reacted to the cheating drama, which is expected to be filmed for season 10, on her Instagram Story by issuing a warning to Raquel, who recently told Us Weekly she doesn’t have the “energy” to deal with her.
“I suggest you get some energy for me. You’re gonna need it,” she said, tagging Raquel’s page to ensure she’d get the message.
On her own Instagram Story, Katie let her thoughts be known with a couple of clown emojis.
“It’s funny to watch people social climb and be soooooooo fake that they’re willing to sh-t on people that are supposed to be their ‘best friend’ (a term that gets thrown around very often around here) all just to come up or have some sort of story line,” he wrote. “This lifestyle and this group is beyond toxic and I wouldn’t recommend it to anyone. All just for clout from a corny a– network like [Bravo TV]. Toms a try hard having a midlife crisis with his cringy band and Raquel has faked her way to the top trying to make something of her life willing to step on whoever to get there starting with James. Sell out type lame sh-t. Let’s all remember that Raquel was a fan of the show before all of this. Does anyone pay attention?”
Vanderpump Rules season 10 airs Wednesdays at 9/8c on Bravo.
