Vanderpump Rules star Lisa Vanderpump has teased the Season 10 reunion, which will feature explosive drama, including a confrontation between Tom Sandoval and Ariana Madix.

"It's going to be long. It's going to be very long," Lisa, 62, recently told Extra.

"I mean, normally, the maximum they do is three [parts]. I think they could do three, four weeks of it [because] there's so much stuff that goes down."

The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills alum noted that she wasn't allowed to say too much about the reunion, which taped on March 23, but she believes viewers will be satisfied with the footage that airs of Tom and Raquel's scandalous affair as well as Ariana's reaction to it.

"There [were] a lot of feelings that needed to be worked out," Lisa explained. "I can't say it's the end of that story. Maybe it's just the beginning of another one but... it's complicated."

Tom and Raquel had a secret affair that lasted for over six months and resulted in Tom and Ariana ending their nine-year relationship in early March.

Bravo recently released a clip of the show's Season 10 finale, which is set to air Wednesday, May 17, via Twitter and Instagram.

"I was going to break up with Ariana regardless," Tom explains to co-star Scheana Shay.

"But you didn't," Scheana counters. "You f--ked her best friend instead."

Tom then breaks down into tears and vents, "I sacrificed everything, and now my world just got turned upside down."

The trailer proceeds to show Tom addressing the scandal with Ariana directly.

After Tom says he and Raquel were "really good friends" before sparking a romance, Ariana explodes and shouts in reply, "I don't give a f-ck about f-cking Raquel! Your friendship is f-cking bullsh-t."

Ariana later admits to Tom, "I regret ever loving you."

The footage ends with Ariana telling Tom, "It turned out so horribly wrong," and then Kristen Doute -- who dated Tom from 2007-2013 and got fired from Vanderpump Rules in 2020 for a racist prank -- suddenly returning.

Bravo executive Andy Cohen called the reunion "really confrontational" in late March. He teased that "nothing was left unsaid."

In mid-April, Raquel checked into a treatment facility to check her mental health in the aftermath of her highly publicized affair with Tom.

Raquel's representative told Us Weekly that the 28-year-old Bravo reality TV star had checked into rehab, but not for substance abuse issues.

"Raquel had planned to admit herself before the [Vanderpump Rules Season 10] reunion was taped on March 23," the rep explained.

"She was scheduled to go in pre-reunion but decided she wanted to finish her filming commitment. Bravo and production were aware and in support of her journey towards better mental health."

Raquel and Tom both issued public apologies for their actions in March, but they were spotted together several times after filming the Vanderpump Rules' reunion.

A source told Us on March 3 that Tom and Ariana had been "having problems for a while." The insider claimed the pair's relationship "only came to a breaking point" the day prior to their split on March 1.

"We're really good friends. We are not putting any label on it," Tom reportedly said of Raquel on the April 11 episode of the "Howie Mandel Does Stuff" podcast.

Tom also shared how his romance with Raquel started with a kiss in August 2022 that felt "magnetic."

"I felt something that I hadn't felt in so long emotionally," Tom explained.

"The feelings were something very, very strong. Those feelings that I had started to take over in a sense. Logic went out the window. Because I wasn't experiencing that [with Ariana] -- I hadn't experienced that [before]."

Tom claimed that he had attempted to break up with Ariana once he realized he had strong feelings for Raquel.

"Like many relationships, it felt like it became more of like a best friends, family [thing] -- sometimes roommates," Tom continued.

"There were a lot of ways where the relationship was just lacking the intimacy, the connection. We would travel more by ourselves than we would together. I would go to weddings by myself."

Tom said his communication with Raquel was frequent and their connection was pretty strong.

"I was seeing Raquel as often as I could. I know that sounds horrible," Tom admitted.

"And FaceTiming her all the time. And Ariana didn't even notice because that's just how separate our lives were. I had to actually tell her, 'How have you not noticed how distant I've been lately?'"

Ariana joined the cast of Vanderpump Rules in November 2013, and then she and Tom announced they were officially dating during the Season 2 reunion that aired in February 2014.

Raquel began dating James Kennedy in 2016, and the pair got engaged in May 2021. However, the couple broke up in December of that year.

Raquel proceeded to go on dates with Peter Madrigal in Summer 2022 before hooking up with Tom Schwartz, who had split from Katie Maloney, during August of that year.
