Kristen has broken silence on Tom's separation from Ariana and romantic involved with Raquel. She said, "This is all very surreal that this occurred with he and Raquel behind Ariana's back.

But I really didn't think he'd do it to her." She shared Ariana and Tom's present situation is evoking many memories for her.
According to Kristen, she believes that she and Tom should have ended their relationship earlier than they did. She said, "We should've broken up after a year or two. We shared a DVR box. We shared bills. We shared a s****y apartment. We didn't have any money. And it was like, we shared the same friend group. It was, like, easier to just as it felt in the moment easier to just stay in it than it was to, like, break up the friend group. But we were both unfaithful. We cheated on each other."
Tom Schwartz also spoke about the controversy surrounding his closest friend, Tom's alleged affair with Raquel. He said, "[Sandoval's] okay, I think. Relatively speaking, I mean, he has a sense of profound sadness, rightfully so, that he's a piece of s***. And to some extent, maybe he is. But he knows he f***ed up, and the whole thing is just really sad."
