The former Vanderpump Rulesstar spoke to Page Six, where he shared that while he's "happy for [Sandoval]," he disagrees with Tom's decision to announce his new podcast the morning after the season premiere of Dancing with the Stars, on which Ariana is competing.
"I'm happy for him, but I don't think he should have launched it the day after Ariana's Dancing with the Stars," said Taylor. "I think that was bad PR, and the fact that he is trying to redeem himself and make himself a better person -- whoever told him to announce this the day after... not a good move."
"I said, 'Hey listen, I don't agree with what you did to Tom Schwartz. I don't agree with how you handled your bar situation,' but other than that as far as the cheating thing goes, I've done that. So I don't really have a leg to stand on," said Taylor.
"But I said, 'Listen, I don't know what you're going through mentally. I can only imagine the whole world hating you.' So I just gave him a hug and said, 'If you need me I'm down the street,'" concluded Taylor.
Sandoval, 40, and Madix were together for nine years before the latter discovered texts and videos that were sexual in nature from Rachel on the former's phone in March. It was later confirmed that Sandoval and Raquel had an affair for months.
The scandal -- aka Scandoval -- took the world by storm, with the fallout unfolding on the Season 10 finale and three-part explosive reunion.
While Sandoval is currently single, Madix has since moved on with new beau Daniel Wai.
