Bravo didn't dangle Winter House over Tom Sandoval's head to get him to film scenes for Vanderpump Rules post-Scandoval. Sources with direct knowledge of the situation denied the accusations Sandoval made in the first episode of his podcast, Everybody Loves Tom, telling that production didn't bribe him with an appearance on Winter House so he'd film with Lisa Vanderpump and Scheana Shay after being exposed for cheating on Ariana Madix with Raquel Leviss.

Sandoval alleged that Bravo insinuated he wouldn't be able to film Winter House unless he filmed with Scheana and Lisa after Scandoval.
