Ariana Madix seems to be moving on in the wake of the “Vanderpump Rules” drama now known as “Scandoval.” On April 17, the reality star was spotted kissing fitness coach Daniel Wai at LAX as she dropped him off for a flight, per photos published by the Daily Mail. The airport PDA comes after Madix and Wai were spotted glued at the hip at Coachella all weekend, even posing for photos together.
In the picture below, taken on April 14 at the festival’s Celsius Oasis Vibe House, Wai wears a blue outfit next to Madix. The photo also features Madix’s “Vanderpump Rules” castmates Scheana Shay and Brock Davies, as well as former star Dayna Kathan.

Madix’s new romance comes a little over a month after her breakup with longtime boyfriend Tom Sandoval. The pair were together for nine years. In early March, Madix learned that Sandoval had been cheating on her with her friend (and fellow “Vanderpump Rules” cast member) Raquel Leviss. Both Sandoval and Leviss eventually publicly admitted to the affair and issued apologies. But in an interview with Howie Mandel, released on April 11, Sandoval claimed he tried to break up with Madix on Valentine’s Day before she learned about the affair. Madix has not yet responded to that allegation.
It’s unclear when Madix met Wai, but the latter is a fitness trainer, and most of his Instagram presence relates to his business. On April 18, he posted a Reel recapping his weekend at Coachella that contained shots of him and Madix holding hands and looking like a couple.
Currently, fans are anxiously awaiting the premiere of the “Vanderpump Rules” season 10 reunion, which will show Sandoval and Leviss facing Madix and their castmates. The reunion was filmed on March 23, and host Andy Cohen teased on the April 3 episode of his radio show that it’ll be “a real reckoning.” Sandoval and Leviss, he said, are “confronted to their face about what they’ve done in, I would say, an aggressive manner.” An air date for the reunion has not yet been announced.
Before Madix sparked romance rumors at Coachella, the festival was a fixture in Sandoval and Leviss’s lives. When Leviss got engaged to former fiancé (and “VPR” star) James Kennedy back in May 2021, the latter threw a Raquel-themed Coachella party and Sandoval paid for half the costs. In 2022, Madix, Sandoval, and Leviss all attended the music festival together as well.
