Call her shady.

Ariana Madix shut down the host of “Call Her Daddy” over a question about Tom Sandoval’s history of cheating on his girlfriends.

“People are like, ‘Oh, you lose him how you got him.’ Like, he cheated on Kristen [Doute with you]. He cheated on you [with Raquel Leviss],” Alex Cooper told the “Vanderpump Rules” star in Wednesday’s episode of her podcast.

Cooper then asked Madix why she would be “surprised” that Sandoval carried out a months-long dalliance with Leviss considering they got together 10 years ago while he was still dating Doute.

“Well, to be very clear: I didn’t lose him, he lost me,” the reality star clapped back.

Madix explained that even before she and Sandoval crossed the line from being friends to having a fling, she “trusted in him so much even as a friend back then.”

“I trusted him so much during our relationship that I trusted his perspective on things, and I think that I was caught up in [it],” she said.

“Whatever he told me, whatever it was he was telling me, was what I was going with.”

Madix, 37, was referring to Sandoval, 40, allegedly telling her that he and Doute, also 40, were in the process of a breakup when they kissed at the Golden Nugget in Las Vegas in 2013.

“That’s not to say I’m a smart girl,” she admitted. “I could’ve dug deeper, but I didn’t.”

The Something About Her co-owner explained that more than anything else, she found the start to their relationship to be more reflective of his character than hers.

“I think that it’s something that just goes to show that that’s kind of maybe just what he does, is he says things like, ‘I tried to end it’ or things like that or ‘We’re broken up’ or whatever it is,” she continued.

Madix ultimately hopes the massive backlash from Sandoval’s affair with Leviss — since dubbed Scandoval — will “prevent him from ever doing that again with any other person.”

Sandoval previously claimed on Howie Mandel’s “Howie Does Stuff” podcast that he broke up with Madix on Valentine’s Day — two weeks before she found out about him and Leviss, who was her close friend at the time.

Sandoval further claimed to co-star Scheana Shay that he and Madix had “not been good” for the last “four or five years” and that they bought their $2 million Valley Village, Calif., home as a “band-aid” for their relationship.

Madix denied that she felt the house would fix their romance and emphasized that while things may have been off over the last year, she assumed Sandoval was going through a midlife crisis — not having an affair with Leviss.

Among other bombshells on the podcast, Madix claimed Sandoval and Leviss, 28, once had sex while she was just one bedroom away from them.

“They had sex in my guest room while I was sleeping in my own bed that he and I went to bed in together, and then he left the bed and went to the guest room and f—ked her,” she told Cooper.

Madix dumped Sandoval in March, and Page Six reported last week that Leviss has also “dipped out” of any romantic future with Sandoval.
