Watch: Ariana Madix Makes Out With New Man at Coachella 2023

Ariana Madix and her new man are going strong.

Two weeks after the Vanderpump Rules star proved she was moving on from the Scandoval drama by making out with Daniel Wai at Coachella, the 37-year-old reunited with the fitness coach for a date night in NYC.

In photos and videos posted to Instagram, Bravo fans caught the lovebirds sitting together at a Yankees game May 2 and the two were even featured on the stadium's Jumbotron laughing and smiling during their sporty outing. Both Ariana and Daniel rocked Yankees jerseys while watching the team beat the Cleveland Guardians 4-2.

The pair first sparked romance rumors in mid-April by displaying lots of PDA at Coachella while hanging out with friends including her VPR co-stars Scheana Shay and Brock Davies. Daniel even shared a cozy photo with Ariana to his Instagram story on April 16 that showed the reality star wrapping her arms around him in the crowd during one concert set.

Following their whirlwind weekend in the desert, Daniel shared a sweet video celebrating their getaway that featured images of them holding hands, staring lovingly into each other's eyes and wearing matching sneakers.


Ariana's rebound romance comes a month after news broke of the seven-month affair between her then-boyfriend of nine years Tom Sandoval and co-star Raquel Leviss. The fallout from the scandal is playing out on the current season of Vanderpump Rules.

And Ariana recently opened up to E! News about the lesson she's taking away from the explosive cheating scandal.

"I've learned recently that I can handle anything that's thrown at me in life," Ariana exclusively revealed at the 2023 White House Correspondents' Dinner on April 29. "I think that that was something I was always scared of."

After Tom and Raquel's affair came to light in early March, both apologized to Ariana in public statements with Raquel subsequently seeking treatment for her mental health amid the backlash.

And while Ariana has mostly stayed quiet on the scandal, she did thank fans for their support during this difficult time.

"I want to express my most sincere gratitude for the outpouring of love and support I have received from friends, family, and people I've never even met in the last two weeks," she wrote in a March 16 Instagram post. "When I have felt like I couldn't even stand, you all have given me the strength to continue and seen me through my darkest hours."

See the Sandoval drama continue to play out when Vanderpump Rules airs Wednesdays at 9 p.m. on Bravo.
