Alyssa Farah Griffin blasts Tom Sandoval’s ‘cringey’ podcast announcement: ‘I hated it’

Reality TV

Nobody loves Tom.

Alyssa Farah Griffin is one of many critics who despised Tom Sandoval’s bizarre podcast announcement, in which he yanks off his T-shirt for attention.

“That was so cringey, I wanted to jump out of my skin,” the “View” co-host, 34, said on the daytime talk show Thursday. “I hated it.”

Sandoval, 41, released the peculiar promo video for his new podcast, “Everybody Loves Tom,” on Wednesday. But aside from the backlash over his scantily clad appearance, the title of his podcast also got slammed.

The “Vanderpump Rules” star has been under fire after he cheated on his longtime girlfriend, Ariana Madix, with their mutual friend Raquel Leviss in a scandal that has been dubbed Scandoval.

Griffin noted that perhaps Sandoval was trying a public relations technique where you “lean in” to what people are saying about you so that it can be perceived as “funny, charming and self-deprecating.”

However, the former White House communicators director said the Bravoleb’s pod title was “not that,” adding, “That’s like leaning into, ‘I’m a bit of a narcissist.’”

Her co-host Joy Behar then pointed out, “If he understood, he would call it ‘Everybody Hates Tom.’”

“That would show you that he has what they call an observing ego … when you understand your own self,” the 80-year-old comic added.

Joy Behar said that if Sandoval was self-aware, he would call the podcast, “Everybody Hates Tom.”

Griffin also blasted Sandoval for releasing his podcast announcement just a day after Madix, 38, made her debut on “Dancing With the Stars” Tuesday night.

Griffin said of the Tom Sandoval and the Most Extras frontman, “Once again, he has to just step on her success with his stupid, little podcast.”

Perhaps the TV commentator also had a bone to pick with the reality star since he used a clip of her likening him to Donald Trump as part of the promo for his podcast.

However, Griffin doubled down on her initial comments about Sandoval, writing via her Instagram Story Wednesday, “I said what I said.”
