Ariana Madix of Vanderpump Rules fame wrote “a long but sincere post about this past year” on her Instagram page summarizing 2018. “2018 was a year full of huge moments that were unplanned. Lifelong dreams fulfilled and unexpected hardships overcome.”
The bartending beauty revealed that she had a significant health scare stating, “I had to have a lil bit o’cancer removed from my body and lymph nodes biopsied. (In the clear now!).” Thank heavens for that. What would we, or Tom Sandoval, do?!?! I hope we never have to find out!

Everyone is doing it so here’s a long but sincere post about this past year! I wish i could post more pics 🥺 half of the ones i posted are showing up all white?!! 2018 was a year full of huge moments that were unplanned. Lifelong dreams fulfilled and unexpected hardships overcome. We went to Cuba and Japan! I dreamt of going to both from such a young age. I had to have a lil bit o’cancer removed from my body and lymph nodes biopsied. (In the clear now!) I started a business and got to raise money for my favorite charity. I kicked ass in the horse show ring. I fell more in love with my boyfriend and my girlfriends, but most importantly: MYSELF. So much progress was made on my many goals and ambitions, but I’ve had to learn the same lessons in life over and over: Intense ambition is one of my best qualities BUT when it becomes overwhelming to have so many goals, I need to take a step back and just focus on one thing. Even if an issue won’t be solved right away, talking about it ALWAYS sends it on a path to resolution and healing. Looking ahead to 2019 with optimism, hope, and more hard work on the horizon!
Stassi Schroeder‘s birthday twin didn’t give oodles of deets about the cancer, but she posted a video that featured a bandage close to her chest a while back. “Update: I’m not allowed to shower so I feel extra gross,” she said at the time, according to Us Weekly. “I’m watching scary shows but what is really scary is what’s going on in there,” Madix continued. “Still waiting on biopsy results, lymph node biopsy results. So hopefully next week I get a clear on that. Until then, I feel really disgusting.” Glad she had the support of her friends, family, and the love of her boyfriend, Tom (of West Hollywood’s Tom Tom). Ariana, keep focusing on all the good in your life and you will be just fine.
These wise words from Ms. Madix are helping me get movitated for the new year, so I’d like to share the positivity with you… “I started a business and got to raise money for my favorite charity. I kicked ass in the horse show ring. I fell more in love with my boyfriend and my girlfriends, but most importantly: MYSELF.” Yes, Ariana. You deserve all of it!
Poor Ariana! I can’t imagine how horrible that must have been for her. Please drop some words of encouragement for the sassy and sexy SUR bartender in the comment section below!
