Sandoval continued that this is a very personal situation and although Sandy bears his name, there are three other partners and twenty employees involved in this restaurant and depend on himself for their source of income. The Vanderpump Rules star says he’s just a small part of the bigger thing and tells people to direct their anger at him and not at them because they did nothing wrong. He apologizes to partners Schwartz, Brett and Greg along with the staff as they had to accept the consequences of his actions.

I will take a step back and stop being respectful to my employees and partners. I need some time to process everything else,” Tom Sandoval wrote in the statement. In the end he apologizes for everything.

Sandoval’s apology comes in light of people boycotting their restaurant Sandy’s because of Ariana Madix’s Vanderpump Rules star cheating on her with Raquel Levis. It was also reported that Schwartz knew about and supported his actions.
