Tom Sandoval is doing major damage control in multiple areas of his life!
In the wake of “Scandoval,” the co-owner of TomTom and Schwartz & Sandy’s restaurants is diving into a new business venture.
You may recall, his first apology regarding “Scandoval” was NOT to Ariana Madix, his girlfriend of nearly a decade.

It was more of a plea to fans to NOT boycott his restaurants that he co-owns with Tom Schwartz.
“Also Schwartz & Sandy’s might have my name on it, but also there are 3 other partners and 20 employees, who especially rely on the restaurant for income for them and their families. Just like TomTom, I’m a small part of a much bigger thing. Direct ur anger towards me and not them. They did nothing wrong. I’m so sorry that my partners, Greg, Brett, and Schwartz and our employees have to suffer for my actions,” he wrote.
According to The U.S. Sun, Sandoval is “secretly working” on repairing the damage he’s caused his businesses.
The outlet spoke to the owner of Dumba** Whiskey, who shared that he is working with Sandoval and Schwartz to help bring the hard liquor to California.

“At the moment we’re in the process of launching in the state of California with a distributor,” Peter Spicer told The U.S. Sun. “California will be opening, and that’s sort of like our benchmark state because [Tom & Tom] are out in California and with their restaurant, we’ll be able to do a lot more focus [there] than we can in New Jersey.”
The “Vanderpump Rules” stars currently promote a brand of whiskey called “Toms’ Good Lovin’.” It is featured at Schwartz & Sandy’s and available for purchase on its website.
Ironically enough, one ad on the whiskey brand’s website says, “Keep Your Whiskey On The Rocks, Not Your Relationships.”
Spicer revealed he’s spoken to Sandoval since the cheating scandal broke; however, they’ve only talked business and nothing about the affair.
He added that he’s gotten a slew of “nasty emails” from fans.
“I can’t say, at this point, if [‘Scandoval] affected it negatively or positively. But the thing that I’m enjoying about it is there seems to be an awareness out there,” the Dumba** Whiskey founder spilled. “More people are expressing an interest – whether it’s positive or negative… I think that people are aware of the brand.”
I guess the age-old saying, “any publicity is good publicity,” is true.
Ariana Madix Finally Breaks Her Silence!
Sandoval’s ex-GF, Madix, broke her silence about “Scandoval” this week.
“hi. where to begin? i want to express my most sincere gratitude for the outpouring of love and support i have received from friends, family, and people i’ve never even met in the last two weeks. when i have felt like i couldn’t even stand, you all have given me the strength to continue and seen me through my darkest hours,” she wrote. “To say i have been devastated and broken is an understatement. however, i know that i am not in this alone.”
She concluded, “What doesn’t kill me better run. love, Ariana.”
