Vanderpump Rules star Ariana Madix has turned her heartbreak into a profitable venture, partnering with various brands for advertising and endorsements. It was revealed in March that her longtime boyfriend, Tom Sandoval, had been having an affair with their mutual friend, Rachel ‘Raquel’ Leviss. During the Season 10 reunion, Tom tried to gaslight Ariana and shift the blame onto her for the demise of their relationship. However, instead of wallowing in sorrow, Ariana decided to use her sadness as an opportunity for success.
One of Ariana’s first commercial ventures was with shaving brand Bic Razor. In an ad, she shared her “truth” and talked about how life doesn’t have to be complicated. She also filmed a photoshoot at Bloomingdale’s, showcasing a red revenge dress and a lavender gown. The fashion retailer heavily advertised Ariana, highlighting their options for all shoppers.
Ariana also appeared in an Uber Eats commercial, alongside co-stars Lala Kent and Scheana Shay, where they sang a catchy remix of the song “Good as Gold.” She filmed a Duracell battery commercial, expressing her dissatisfaction with anything basic and promoting Duracell’s long-lasting product. Ariana has also partnered with Glad garbage bags, using the opportunity to promote her own sandwich shop, Something About Her, which is set to open in the summer.
In a surprising collaboration, Ariana teamed up with Bellesa, a vibrator brand, showcasing their pink Pebble vibrator. She also appeared in a Lay’s Chips ad, enjoying her homemade lunch with the added crunch of potato chips. Finally, she partnered with Joyburst, a cocktail brand, to create her own signature cocktail and promote moments of joy in her life.
Ariana’s ability to turn her heartbreak into a business opportunity has surprised many. Fans are speculating about who else she may collaborate with in the future. Despite the betrayal she experienced, Ariana has shown resilience and a determination to succeed.
