Boy (and girl), bye.
“Vanderpump Rules” star Ariana Madix has seemingly blocked co-stars Tom Sandoval and Raquel Leviss on Instagram after making her return to the social media platform.
Madix, 37, deactivated her account last week after news broke that Sandoval, her boyfriend of almost 10 years, was having a “full-on,” months-long affair with her Leviss, her close friend.
Though she has not yet posted since the scandal made headlines, it appears Madix made the decision to block Sandoval, 40, and Leviss, 28, as well as unfollow castmate Tom Schwartz, who is believed to have known about the pair’s dalliance.
Sandoval and Leviss do not show up on Madix’s following list and are no longer tagged in her previously uploaded photos, which occurs when a user is blocked.
However, Schwartz, 40, is still tagged in past photos, even though he’s no longer being followed by Madix. This could mean that while she did unfollow the businessman, she did not block him.
As we previously reported, Madix discovered that Sandoval was cheating on her when she discovered a sexually explicit video of Leviss on his phone while watching his band, Tom Sandoval & The Most Extras, perform at TomTom in LA on March 1.
After realizing the two had been “communicating inappropriately for months,” she promptly dumped the Schwartz & Sandy’s co-owner.
“Ariana was blindsided by the cheating,” a source told Page Six, adding that she had “no idea there were any issues” in her relationship and feels both “heartbroken” and “betrayed by her friend.”
Madix’s castmates, many of whom have publicly come to her defense, have corroborated the information.
“Pump Rules” matriarch Lisa Vanderpump said Madix is “devastated” by Sandoval and Leviss’ actions, while the musician’s ex-girlfriend Kristen Doute added that the blonde is overwhelmingly “sad” and “not doing well.”
Katie Maloney — who was married to Schwartz before Leviss made out with him in the midst of her affair with Sandoval — made sure to note that her business partner feels “overwhelmed” by fans’ support.
Meanwhile, former “Pump Rules” star Stassi Schroeder is convinced that Leviss’ hookup with Schwartz was a “cover-up” for her illicit romance with Sandoval.

Sandoval issued an initial statement on the matter one day after the bombshell dropped, but failed to mention Madix.
Fans were not happy, so he released a second statement in which he apologized profusely to his now-ex.
In her own public apology, which was posted Wednesday, Leviss blamed the affair — which we’re told “began last summer” — on her “addiction to being and feeling loved.”
Though the secret lovers initially “wanted to be together,” the former beauty pageant queen is now distancing herself from the wannabe rockstar.
Leviss returned to Instagram Wednesday night to say that although she “care[s] for Tom,” she needs to “take time to be ok with being alone.”
On Tuesday, Leviss filed for a restraining order against co-star Scheana Shay, whom she had a “heated confrontation” with after news of the affair broke.
Leviss claimed Shay, 37, pushed her into a brick wall, injuring the back of her head, and punched her in the left eye.
Shay called her ex-BFF a “liar and a cheat” in response to the restraining order, and said the allegations are “fabrication.”
