After 11 seasons of fighting in between making drinks or waiting on tables, each member of the cast of Vanderpump Rules has gone through a lot of drama. Since Season 2, Ariana Madix has provided a dry wit to the show, and she's often been the dose of reality that many of the cast members need. Needless to say, if Ariana quit the show, many would be displeased.

Though she had a rough beginning on the show as the alleged secret girlfriend of Kristen Doute's then-boyfriend Tom Sandoval, since making her reality TV debut, Ariana has become a staple on the show.

She developed a friendship with Stassi Schroeder after years of feuding in Season 7, but things went back to normal in Season 8, as Ariana was once again on the outs from most of the other women following Tom's drama about Stassi's book party at Tom Tom.

The drama was so extreme that the reality star even considered leaving the show. Then there's the Scandoval of it all, with Ariana on one side and ex Tom on the other as their friends take sides following their breakup.

But is Ariana Madix quitting Vanderpump Rules any time soon? The reality star has hinted that she wanted to quit following Season 8, and Season 11 seems to have been the hardest one yet to film (for good reason!). So what's the deal?

When Season 11 of Vanderpump Rules premiered, viewers got a look at the aftermath of Scandoval and how the group dynamic changed with Ariana and Tom's shared friends and co-stars. Although Ariana has some loyal friends among them, it's no secret that things were hard for her, as some of her friendships were seriously tested at the time of filming.

On the other side of the coin, the scandal afforded Ariana opportunities the likes of which she had never seen before. These included being on of Dancing With the Stars, hosting Peacock's Love Island USA, and playing Roxie Hart in Chicago on Broadway. With all of that in mind, VPR fans assumed Ariana might be ready to move on from the reality show to greener pastures.

Ariana hasn't revealed plans to leave the long-running Bravo show after Season 11 (provided that the show returns for a twelfth season). But she did tell Us Weekly in a March 2024 interview that boyfriend Daniel Wai would not be back to film the show again after his Season 11 appearance. With no word about Ariana not returning, it certainly seems like she's still interested in being the number one girl in the group.

Ariana Madix bought a new house.

With Ariana's many new opportunities seemingly flooding in for her to choose from, and a continued salary from VPR, she recently purchased her own home in the Hollywood Hills. After months of going back and forth with Tom and their attorneys divvying up their assets in their shared home and deciding on the amount for which Tom could buy out Ariana, it looks like she has finally moved on from that part of her life.

Ariana purchased the home for $1.6 million, and it is newly renovated. Plus, it's all hers, and has literally nothing to do with her ex.

Does that mean Ariana has also moved on from VPR? Right now, to the relief of fans, it doesn't seem like it.
