In the video, DWTS host Derek Hough, 38, is standing in Ariana and Katie Maloney’s sandwich shop Something About Her as he reveals that he will announce the show’s first contestant tomorrow morning.
Previously, Ariana and Tom, 39, split after she caught him cheating on her with co-star Raquel Leviss, 28.
Ariana uncovered the affair after she discovered an “intimate video” on Tom’s phone.
The U.S. Sun learned exclusively at the time that the pair had been on a downward spiral for months before their split.
The couple had not been intimate in some time and they had reportedly been having issues months before their relationship’s official demise.
The drama is set to unfold across additional episodes of Vanderpump Rules after the cast wraps filming on Season 10.
In addition to her upcoming role on DWTS, Ariana is set to appear in a Lifetime movie.
Deadline reported Ariana will star in Buying Back My Daughter, which will also feature Meagan Good.
In response to the new GMA video, VPR fans immediately knew who Derek would announce as the contestant.
One said, “Ariana Madix!! I wouldn’t be the least bit surprised.”
Someone else wrote, “Ariana Madix. He’s at Something About Her.”
“I think we all know who it is…It’s not exactly hard to figure out,” added a third.
Another said, “I mean, he is shooting from Something About Her.”
OUT FOR REVENGE
The star wore silver rings and a red dress that left little to the imagination.
Other photos included drawings of her and her co-star’s dresses and a behind-the-scenes look of her getting ready to attend the TV special.
On previous episodes of the Bravo show, Tom said that he made the money in their relationship; however, Ariana had something to say in the previous post.
The reality star captioned her post: “Breadwinner.”
Fans showed love for Ariana in the comment section as one person exclaimed: “Quite the red revenge dress for Ariana.”
“Ariana is straight fire,” admitted another while a third swooned: “She looks gorgeous!”
A fourth – quoting lyrics from a Taylor Swift song – said: “Lately she’s been dressing for revenge.”
“Arianna looks absolutely stunning!” one person reacted.
THE END OF A RELATIONSHIP
A source claimed that producers got word of what went down, and made the decision to film with the entire cast to document the fallout.
The drama could even make it into season 10 of VPR, which is currently airing on Bravo.
Ariana supported Tom’s band to support the release of his new single, but that was the last time the couple was seen together
But sources close to the group told the outlet that the pair had been on the rocks for a while.
After news broke, Raquel’s ex-fiancé James Kennedy posted to Instagram: “Hope you all feel as sick as I do. This explains everything.”
She ended their engagement back in December 2021 admitting her “heart wasn’t fully in it.”
