Summer House star Carl Radke has stated that he has unfollowed Vanderpump Rules’ Tom Sandoval following his cheating scandal and split from Ariana Madix, stating that he doesn’t condone cheating, lying or his behavior in response to it.
Summer House star, Carl Radke, recently opened up about his take on Tom Sandoval’s cheating scandal and split from Ariana Madix. Although he isn’t on Vanderpump Rules, Radke exclusively told Us Weekly that he unfollowed Sandoval because he doesn’t condone cheating and doesn’t want to partake in his behavior. Radke added that he wishes Sandoval the best in his journey, but he’s “Team Ariana” over here. Us confirmed that Tom and Ariana called it quits in March after he was caught having an affair with their Pump Rules costar Raquel Leviss.
During her visit to New York City after the season 10 finale, Ariana met up with other Bravo stars, including Carl and his fiancée, Lindsay Hubbard. Carl praised Ariana for her strength and the way she’s been coping with the breakup, stating that she’s handled the situation admirably and with courage. He can relate to difficult personal situations being public after his own experience dealing with the public’s interest. However, he’s gotten more comfortable speaking out about the importance of mental health, which is why he partnered with Talkspace for their “Celebrate Every Step” campaign for Mental Health Awareness Month.
Carl explained that he’s been on a mental health journey for years, and therapy played a pivotal role in overcoming challenges in his life and helping him show up in relationships for his friends, family, and fiancée in a more profound way. He hopes that his involvement in the campaign can help decrease the stigma around asking for help and normalize therapy. He believes that mental health should be treated like physical health and that “going to the gym for your mind” is crucial to overall well-being.
As a Bravo personality, Carl’s been through his fair share of challenging situations, but he’s using his platform to advocate for mental health awareness and encourage others to seek help. Summer House airs on Bravo Mondays at 9 p.m. ET.
