When Tom Sandoval cheated on Ariana Madix with Raquel Leviss, he probably didn’t realize he’d be on the losing side of things 7+ months down the line.

But “Vanderpump Rules” co-star Lala Kent says she thinks Sandoval is jealous of how well Madix has recovered the wake of the so-called “Scandoval.”

In fact, the whole cast seems to be on the up – all except Sandoval himself.

Madix ended up with multiple big brand endorsements, and a Lifetime movie. She even had the chance to visit the White House with Lisa Vanderpump.

And other cast members ended up on top too. Scheana Shay has banked since the scandal, Kent has also raked in the dough with her own merch. Even bad boy Jax Taylor seems to be doing well after everything.

Again – except Sandoval.  Kent thinks that Sandoval is jealous over how well Madix has recovered and the fact that people are throwing money at her now. Kent opened up about her thoughts on the whole situation during the Give Them Lala podcast.

Reality Tea writes, “Lala thinks Sandoval is miffed people aren’t throwing dollars at him. She said, ‘Behind the scenes, he’s been wondering why he wasn’t invited, trying to get invited, to the White House Correspondence Dinner.’ He’s also curious as to where all of the requests for appearances are.

‘[He’s] trying to get invited to X, Y, and Z, asking why he’s not doing certain talk shows,’ Lala added. Well, I guess not too many folks are prepared to see a worm with a mustache when the sun is out. ‘Behind the scene, he’s jealous,’ she quipped.

Considering how Tom acted when Ariana attempted to do her own book of cocktails, this tracks. He must be seething that her net worth increased while he’s still paying his band to show up.

Lala rationalizes that people are seeing Tom in a negative light, which has afforded him the fame always wanted – but he’s not coming out unscathed and his reputation has been impacted. While the pot of gold continues to elude Sandoval, Ariana’s next venture, her sandwich shop with Katie Maloney, is progressing nicely.”

And Kent isn’t the only one coming out swinging at Sandoval this week.

One-time “Vanderpump Rules” villain Jax Taylor recently told Rolling Stone that he thinks Sandoval is a narcissist, and called his lack of empathy and accountability “sociopathic.” He contrasted his remorse at having cheated on Brittany Cartwright with Sandoval’s seeming lack of emotion and regret.

While one would assume that Sandoval should have known how things would turn out after he cheated on his wife for seven months,  apparently he’s shocked by how badly things turned out.

Or maybe shocked by how graceful and resilient Madix has proven to be.

Either way, everything’s coming up Madix – and nothing’s coming up Sandoval.
