Raquel Leviss blamed Ariana Madix amid ‘deceitful’ Tom Sandoval affair

Written by on June 1, 2023


Raquel Leviss is “ashamed” of her and Tom Sandoval’s “deceitful” affair — and of how she felt about Ariana Madix during the dalliance.

When Andy Cohen observed that the former pageant queen appeared to be “blaming” Madix for the infidelity during part two of the “Vanderpump Rules” reunion, Leviss confirmed the producer’s suspicions.

“At the time, I think that was my mindset,” the 28-year-old admitted on Wednesday’s episode during a one-on-one with the Bravo exex.

Leviss explained that Madix appeared “to be in denial” about Sandoval’s cheating and never “pressed” or “confronted” them.

Leviss slammed Madix for taking her and Sandoval’s innocence at “face value.”

“From what I know what Tom has told me, she didn’t question him too much about it just believed like at face value what he would tell her,” she claimed.

However, Leviss noted, “I now I know that she really did want to know.”

She and Madix, 37, were friends during Leviss’ months-long affair with the cover band frontman.

Leviss was in her “own little reality” at the time, “hoping that it would work out.”

She gushed to Cohen, 54, about how “heard and seen” Sandoval made her feel, adding that she hadn’t experienced that in a relationship “maybe ever.”

“It was a lot of pain that I felt from her,” Leviss recalled. “She begged me to tell her when it all happened. … I told her the truth. And she said, ‘Thank you for telling me because Tom would have never told me the truth.’”

Leviss and Sandoval’s initial plan, however, had been to “truncate how long it had been going on” in order to “hurt” Madix less.

While Leviss watched much of the Bravo reunion from a trailer as she had a temporary restraining order against Scheana Shay when it was filmed, Madix and the rest of the cast members will confront her in next week’s installment.

Sandoval believes Madix will “unleash” on Leviss during the final installment.

Sandoval warned Leviss before her entrance that Madix is going to “unleash” on her when given the chance.

The bar co-owner, for his part, called Madix a “motherf–ker” in an extended scene on Wednesday, claiming she acted “condescending” toward him during their nine-year romance.

Part three of the “Vanderpump Rules” reunion airs June 7 at 9 p.m. ET on Bravo.
