Raquel Leviss says she thought Vanderpump employee was single
Vanderpump Rules personalities Ariana Madix and her boyfriend of nine years, Tom Sandoval, ended their relationship. On March 3rd TMZ reports that the couple split because he “allegedly cheated with costar Raquel Leviss.” A few days before reports of Sandoval’s cheating scandal began to circulate, Leviss appeared At Virtual Reality Tea Podcast by Page Six, alongside Scheana Shay. In the interview, Leviss admitted that she kissed Real Housewives of Beverly Hills star Garcelle Beauvais’ eldest child, Oliver Saunders, during the production of “Vanderpump Rules” Season 10 Episode 5. According to Us Weekly, Oliver was still in a relationship with his estranged wife Samantha Saunders when the encounter took place. In a September 2022 Instagram Story, Samantha, the mother of Oliver’s child, Oliver Jr., claimed that the 32-year-old “cheated publicly with Raquel on camera just for fame.” Page Six reports Saunders “filed for the termination of his marriage” in September 2022.
In the Virtual Reali-Tea interview, Leviss claimed she believed the father of one was “single” before they kissed. She explained that her castmate Lala Kent’s attraction to the Vanderpump à Paris employee was one of the reasons she thought he broke up with Samantha.
“Lala mentioned meeting him at the Vanderpump [à] Paris opening and she said she was kinda into him and that made me think he was single,” said the 28-year-old.
Leviss also claimed that Oliver “put it succinctly,” saying, “I’m separated from my wife.”
Scheana Shay revealed Lala Kent was suspicious of Oliver Saunders
During the Virtual Reali-Tea interview, Leviss shared that Kent “gave [her] green light” to pursue Oliver. However, Shay made it clear that the “4 U” singer was suspicious of the 32-year-old’s situation with his then-wife. The Jonas actress pointed out that Kent claimed she wasn’t aware that her ex-fiancé Randall Emmett was married to his ex-wife Ambyr Childers when they started dating in 2015.
“For her as someone who has been in that position before, that was an immediate red flag for her. She said, ‘Okay, girl, you can have him,'” Shay said.
The “Good As Gold” singer also claimed that Leviss shouldn’t be held responsible for her encounter with Oliver.
“She was put in such a bad position and it wasn’t her fault at all and I’m so over that everyone blames the woman because she didn’t do anything wrong on purpose, she didn’t know,” Shay claimed.
A source claims Scheana Shay had a “heated” encounter with Raquel Leviss
While Shay came to Leviss’ defense for kissing Oliver, Page Six reports that she was unhappy with her “Vanderpump Rules” co-star after learning about her involvement in Sandoval. According to the publication, a source claimed that the couple “went out for drinks with friends” after being interviewed by Andy Cohen for the March 1 episode of “Watch What Happens Live With Andy Cohen.” The insider stated that Leviss was “on the phone” with Madix during the night.
“One night Scheana lost Raquel and then found her outside the bar on the phone with Ariana, who could hear Scheana crying,” the source said.
The source also claimed Leviss revealed to Shay that she was romantically involved with Sandoval, leading to “a heated confrontation.”
Rachel Leviss Claimed she was “physically assaulted”.
TMZ reported Leviss “requested [a] restraining order against Scheana, which the judge granted on March 8 due to a March 2 interaction of the co-stars. According to the publication, the 28-year-old claimed that the ‘Good As Gold’ singer “bumped Raquel into a wall and hit her in the left eye” over her relationship with Sandoval.
March 8 Leviss went to Instagram to address the situation regarding Madix and Sandoval. In the post, she said she “deeply regrets it[s] hurting Ariana” and revealed that she is “speaking to a counselor”. The 28-year-old also claimed that since Madix she’s “been physically assaulted, lost friends, received death threats and hate mail, and also violated privacy.” Sandoval Separation became public knowledge.
