Ariana Madix Opens Up About Her Past “Emotionally Abusive” Relationship!
"This is what really frustrated me watching that whole uncensored thing, because I obviously wasn't on it, but you had people like Kristen [Doute] saying, 'Oh well that's why she didn't want to do the show, because of Tom [Sandoval].' No. I didn't want to do the show, because I was in a relationship with someone who was extremely emotionally and mentally abusive towards me," she told The Daily Dish podcast.
Ariana said her boyfriend at the time despised Scheana Shay and the show.
"[He] told me Scheana was a piece of sh**, that I shouldn't be friends with her, she's fake. He literally hated every single thing about her and every single thing about reality television in general."
Ariana said her fears of him leaving her kept her from wanting to take part, despite the fact that she did film a performance as a backup dancer for Scheana.
The bartender describes that period of time as "weird" and "tough" and says she's just now getting comfortable with being on the show.
