Who Is Ann Maddox? 5 Things About Tom Sandoval’s Former Assistant


Tom Sandoval’s former assistant Ann Maddox made her Vanderpump Rules debut in January 2024 — and she is so iconic for her discussion about appearing on the Bravo show.

Fans were introduced to Ann during VPR season 11, when she became middle ground between Sandoval and Ariana Madix following their breakup. Sandoval decided he wanted to host a birthday party for himself at their shared home. (Sandoval and Ariana broke off their nine-year relationship in March 2023 after it was revealed that he was cheating with fellow VPR star Rachel “Raquel” Leviss.)

“Ariana’s obviously invited if she wants to come,” he told Ann, quickly suggesting that he could also “get her a nice hotel room” instead. Ann then had to bring the idea up to Ariana.

“That’s not happening. I think that’s very disrespectful and inappropriate,” Ariana told Ann in the February 2024 episode. “If he wants to have a party, he can have it somewhere else. If there are people here making noise, I will call the cops.”

“My response to that is, ‘Bitch, I don’t work on Saturdays!’ I’m your girl Friday, but I don’t work on Saturdays. That’s the end of that,” she said. “Also, Ariana wakes up way earlier than all of us because she is a busy, busy lady, and I don’t come into work until 11:00 a.m. So, if the mail’s delivered before then, sorry.”
