Tom Sandoval is reportedly estranged from the entire Vanderpump Rules cast, who began filming the series’ upcoming 11th season on Wednesday, even his longtime friend and business partner at TomTom and Schwartz & Sandy’s, Tom Schwartz.

As Bravo looks to potentially add new cast members to the show, the series’ matriarch, Lisa Vanderpump, was spotted outside of TomTom in West Hollywood, where she reacted to Raquel Leviss‘ potential return to the show and spoke of Jax Taylor‘s latest diss.

“That’s her decision,” Lisa told TMZ of whether or not Raquel should return to production immediately after she leaves the treatment facility where she’s been treated for mental health concerns for over two months.

According to Lisa, she’s not sure how the cast should respond to Raquel’s possible role on season 11 because she doesn’t “make decisions for them.”

“I think it’s up to everybody individually, they all make their own decisions, clearly, as we’ve seen,” she noted.

As for Jax’s suggestion that she’s supercilious, which he made while appearing on The Toast podcast in early June (he also claimed she was nothing more than a “prop” on Pump Rules), Lisa looked back on Jax’s troubled past, and she made it clear she was unbothered.

“That’s the guy that was like, I supported as he was like, thieving sunglasses and running around off his head. Do I look like I care what he says? Not really,” she stated.

Then, after TMZ asked if it was a poor decision for Jax to trash her when he owes so much to her, Lisa replied, “I didn’t say that, but yes.”

Also, during the interview, Lisa said PUMP, which will close this month for good, has seen a rush of traffic since its impending closure was announced.

“It’s like it was before COVID, which is kind of ridiculous,” she revealed.

Although production on Pump Rules season 11 is already underway, a report from Entertainment Tonight on June 30 said Bravo “is looking to bring in some new cast members.”

“They have started having outbound conversations,” their source shared, before adding that Lala Kent and Katie Maloney “are looking in their external friend groups to see who might be a good fit for the show.”

As the returning members of the show focus on the new episodes, Sandoval is in New Zealand, where he’s been filming the second season of FOX’s Special Forces: World’s Toughest Test.

“No one in the [Pump Rules] cast is in touch with Sandoval,” an insider told The Messenger on June 30 of the musician.

Vanderpump Rules season 11 is expected to begin airing on Bravo sometime later this year or early next year.
