Tom Sandoval's latest confession is good as gold.
While attending Bravocon 2023 (See every star here), the Vanderpump Rules star revealed the real reason he hasn't been wearing his infamous lightning bolt necklace. You know, the piece of jewelry he and Rachel "Raquel" Leviss both wore during their months-long romance while he was still with Ariana Madix.
When asked what happened to the original necklace, he added, "Ariana ripped it off my neck."
While Tom didn't share any additional details about the necklace's disappearance, he noted he's been sporting lightning bolt earrings.
In fact, the 40-year-old rocked his new accessory at Bravocon, pairing them with a pleated jean skirt, black blazer and platform boots. The reality TV star skipped the shirt, baring his chest and tattoos, including what appeared to be new ink on his neck.
Tom isn't the only one to part ways with his necklace and start fresh. Just last month, Rachel auctioned off her TomTom restaurant hoodies and lightning bolt necklace for charity to celebrate World Mental Health Day.
"I am currently in the process of letting go of things that no longer serve me," she told her followers in an Oct. 10 Instagram Story. "As I was cleaning out my closet, I have found a few items that are a little bit triggering and I just don't want to see them."
She continued, "I don't want to have them in my possession. I will never wear them again."
According to eBay, Rachel raised $5,300 for the gold necklace. As for the two sweatshirts? She sold them for an impressive $9,500 for a total of $14,800.
"It's all about creating a better mindset," Rachel shared, "changing your environment so that you can set yourself up for success."
