This is what we all needed to hear. It’s the relationship born out of betrayal. Surely it will be sunshine and rainbows for the doe-eyed Raquel Leviss and sequin-loving Tom Sandoval?
Not so. The disgraced reality TV siren was solo outside LA nail salon Blush Nail Bar. Dressed to be incognito, and going makeup-free, Raquel was definitely without Sandoval.
The video of Raquel was shared by Page Six. A paparazzo peppered her with questions. “I don’t know where our relationship is going to be. We’re just kind of trying to get through these next few steps and trying to, you know, make amends, hear everybody out,” Raquel said.
Presumably, Ariana Madix is at the top of that hierarchy. It will take a LOT of work to resolve this mess. Raquel plans to squeeze it into the Vanderpump Rules reunion.
“I know a lot of people are angry, so I think just getting through these next few steps and seeing where it goes,” she explained. Raquel and Tom are “not putting a label on” their status. The duo is “taking a break for now.”
Perhaps VPR co-star Lala Kent had a point about Sandoval getting off on the illicit aspect of his romance with Raquel. Now that it’s all come to the surface, it’s not quite as appealing, is it?
Yet Raquel alludes to a deeper connection between herself and the Schwartz & Sandy’s co-owner. According to Raquel, the romance “started off as a friendship.” Ok, cool. Then it “turned into something more.” Not cool. “But I’m sure we’ll go into detail tomorrow at the reunion,” Raquel added.

The disgraced reality TV star’s comments are in line with what an insider told Page Six on March 8, 2023. Supposedly, Raquel fled LA and ghosted Sandoval in the process.
“Tom has been unable to track Raquel down for several days. He’s been asking mutual acquaintances if they’ve heard from her at all, but has had no luck. He can’t get in touch with her,” a source said. “She has been completely ignoring Tom,” a second insider added.
Well, perhaps the two played up their spark for Bravo cameras on March 3rd. Just days prior, Raquel and Tom shared their first on-screen kiss while filming for Season 10 of Pump Rules. “It’s complicated,” a source told Page Six of the duo’s dynamic.
Ariana may not be on board to patch things up with Tom’s mistress so quickly. The affair “blindsided” her.
Two weeks later, Ariana shared a heartbreaking statement on Instagram. “To say i have been devastated and broken is an understatement. however, i know that i am not in this alone. What doesn’t kill me better run.”
The silver lining here is that Raquel will be at the reunion.
