Schwartz has voiced his frustrations over Sandoval’s actions and the profound burden it has placed on their shared business ventures. As their friendship strains under the weight of betrayal, Schwartz emphasizes the urgent need for Sandoval to exhibit genuine remorse and take full responsibility for the consequences of his behavior.
A Mess Left Behind
Expressing his deep resentment towards Sandoval, Schwartz revealed the extent of the aftermath caused by his friend’s actions. “He made a big mess. And then you know, he left it for us to clean up back at the businesses,” Schwartz admitted in a heartfelt podcast discussion. The fallout from the affair with Raquel Leviss has had a profound impact on their professional endeavors, straining their partnership and leaving Schwartz feeling exploited. The weight of disappointment in Sandoval’s actions has only grown heavier.
Lack of Remorse and Continued Controversy
Schwartz couldn’t help but comment on the optics of Sandoval, seemingly devoid of remorse, continuing to tour with his band, Tom Sandoval & The Most Extras, amidst the ongoing controversy. “He’s singing his heart out. He’s got his shirt off,” Schwartz remarked, alluding to the lack of contrition displayed by his friend. “It just looks like he has no contrition or it looks like he just doesn’t give a f— and he’s living out his rockstar dreams, and good for him.” Schwartz highlighted Sandoval’s glaring absence of remorse, emphasizing that the people in their restaurant circle are baffled by his lack of accountability.
The Need for Genuine Remorse and Humility
As Schwartz gradually distances himself from Sandoval, he underscores the critical importance of his friend shedding his ego and offering a sincere apology. “He needs a change of heart, humility, and to say ‘I’m sorry’—not ‘I’m sorry, but…’,” Schwartz passionately stated. He firmly believes that genuine remorse, humility, and an unequivocal apology are essential for the healing of their friendship. The affair with Raquel Leviss has left a lasting impact on all those involved, and Schwartz implores Sandoval to take ownership of his actions and demonstrate genuine remorse. The future of their once-solid friendship hangs in the balance as they navigate the painful consequences of the affair. Viewers of Vanderpump Rules continue to witness the ongoing repercussions of this strained friendship, as the show’s dynamic is forever altered by the lingering effects of the betrayal.
