Here’s Where Raquel Leviss Spent the Vanderpump Rules Season 10 Reunion Taping When Scheana Was Onstage

Raquel and Scheana couldn’t be onstage together during the Season 10 reunion, and now we know where Raquel was during the tense taping.

When the Vanderpump Rules Season 10 reunion was filmed earlier this spring, fans learned that there would be two seating charts for the emotional sit-down. One version of the arrangement included Raquel Leviss with the group, while the other included Scheana Shay with the group. The two women were not onstage at the same time.

Why Raquel and Scheana Didn’t Appear Together

How to Watch

Watch Vanderpump Rules on Bravo Tuesdays at 8/7c and next day on Peacock. Catch up on the Bravo app.  

As Andy Cohen noted in Part 1 of the Vanderpump Rules Season 10 reunion (Episode 16), which aired on May 24, the group featured in Part 1 was “minus” Raquel, who would be “joining us a little bit later” since, at the time of the reunion, she and Scheana were in a situation that required them to be kept apart during the filming.

For Part 1 of the reunion, Scheana sat on the stage with the group, and viewers learned where Raquel spent the time while the cast hashed out what may go down as the most tense and emotional season in the show’s history.

Where Was Raquel?

Raquel spent the time in a trailer, watching the reunion on a monitor. At one point, while she was watching from the trailer, she said she wanted to know the answer to one of the questions Tom Sandoval was asked during the heated sit-down. At the reunion, Andy asked, “Sandoval, once you started your relationship with Raquel, why not come clean to Ariana right then?”

“I want him to answer this question,” Raquel said in the trailer. And answer Tom did.

His response? “I was obviously scared to,” he said. “Also, she was going through a lot at that time and I didn’t want to add anything.”

That was just one of the reveals that were shared at the Season 10 reunion. Of course, fans will get to find out what else was revealed when Part 2 of the Season 10 reunion airs on May 31.

Raquel will eventually get to tell her side of the story when she joins the reunion during a later part.

When Andy spoke with The Daily Dish ahead of the reunion airing, he opened up about what it was like to host the reunion with two different seating arrangements.

“[It] didn’t really have an effect on me. We just brought Scheana in and brought her out. I mean, it wasn’t that dramatic, to be honest,” he said. He did note, however, that when the seating arrangement included Raquel instead of Scheana, the vibe in the room did change. “Well, yeah. When Tom and Raquel were out there [it was different energy]. When Raquel was out there, people were really on her.”

Peacock will exclusively stream Vanderpump Rules: Pumped Up Edition, a first-of-its-kind extended version of the three reunion episodes, as well as a supersize version of Secrets Revealed. The uncensored extended versions will feature additional never-before-seen footage of the Bravo offerings, exclusively on Peacock the day after the reunion episodes air on Bravo.

When speaking with The Daily Dish, Andy noted​​​​​ that, overall, once the reunion wraps up, “I think it really delivers. Because I think what people want is retribution and they want these people to be confronted with what they’ve done, and they’re going to get it.”


He added, “I think it’s one of the most highly anticipated reunions that I can think of. I mean, [it] started months ago, obviously. And I think the reason everybody is so invested is that they want to see some sort of a reckoning [with] Tom and Raquel, and they’re going to get it. They want to see them confronted by Ariana. They want to see them confronted by their friends. And it was incredibly confrontational. What can I say?”

But wait, there’s more! Following the three reunion episodes, Bravo will air a Secrets Revealed episode with additional dramatic and scandalous moments behind the affair that jolted the zeitgeist. Tune in on Wednesday, June 14, at 9/8c.
