Tom Sandoval Gave Raquel Leviss This Warning Ahead of the Season 10 Reunion
Find out what else was said when Sandoval visited Raquel in her trailer during Part 2 of the Vanderpump Rules Season 10 reunion.
After spending the beginning of the Vanderpump Rules Season 10 reunion in a trailer 100 yards away from the set, Raquel Leviss joined the rest of the group onstage during Part 2 (Episode 17), which aired May 31.
However, before she sat down with host Andy Cohen and castmates Ariana Madix, Lala Kent, Tom Schwartz, James Kennedy, and Katie Maloney to talk about the fallout from her affair with Tom Sandoval and the rest of the Season 10 drama, Raquel chatted with Sandoval alone in her trailer. What’s more, she also had a one-on-one sit-down with Andy.
Keep scrolling to find out the biggest revelations from both of those chats.
How Tom Sandoval and Raquel Leviss Prepared for the Reunion
Ahead of her Season 10 reunion debut, Raquel sat down with Andy to share her perspective on her affair with Sandoval. She also addressed whether Sandoval “prep[ped]” her for the reunion in advance (which is something Ariana previously brought up on the stage).
“We have, obviously, been talking about the reunion and preparing what to expect and kind of how to approach things,” Raquel said about what her interactions with Sandoval were like heading into the reunion.
Tom Sandoval’s Thoughts on the Reunion
During the lunch break at the reunion, Sandoval went to visit Raquel in her trailer. Though Raquel had been watching the reunion on a monitor while the rest of the cast was filming, Sandoval described what it was like to physically be there on set.
“It’s rough out there,” Sandoval admitted. “I got emotional right off the bat, and James has been literally been exactly how I knew he would be… He’s just out of control. Scheana is fully groveling to Katie ’cause she wants to be back into the group. Lala, who literally does not give a flying f-ck about either one of us, [is] calling me a narcissist, and they’re making you out to be, and me, basically like pathological liars.”
“I see that, yeah, even though we know that we’re not,” Raquel said in response. “And we haven’t lied about anything besides this affair.”
Why Raquel Leviss Questioned Tom Sandoval at the Reunion
Though Sandoval and Raquel were on the same page heading into the three-part reunion, the SUR waitress did take issue with a few of the comments that were made about the end of his relationship with Ariana.
As Scheana said during Part 1, Ariana and Sandoval were in a good spot in their nine-year relationship when the speculation ramped up that Raquel and Sandoval could have been engaging in an affair. “I sat down with Ariana, and from the sounds of it, everything was great, they had been very intimate that month, their communication was better, and they were in a very good place,” Scheana explained.
In her trailer, Raquel told Sandoval that she didn’t appreciate the sentiment.
“I don’t love the way it’s coming across, about your guys’ intimacy. Like, clearly I only know what you’re telling me,” she said. “Just watching what you guys taped right now, it looks like you guys had this solid relationship.”
Sandoval claimed that Ariana “always kind of talked down to [him]” during their relationship, but that she had been giving him more compliments during the time Scheana was referring to.
“I feel like she felt like you wanted to keep the relationship working because you never broke up with her,” Raquel added.
“Yes, in a sense,” Sandoval admitted. “Maybe we should have done this earlier.”
The Warning Tom Sandoval Gave Raquel Leviss at the Reunion
Shortly before Sandoval left the pageant queen’s trailer, he shared an ominous message. “Ariana’s gonna unleash on you,” he said. “I’m glad you came, though.”
Raquel, who previously told Andy that she was “scared” to see Ariana on the set, also reflected on the fallout from the affair. “It just sucks, because my entire character is in question now,” she said. “I have gone through a transitional phase in my life this summer, and I think the pendulum swang [sic] a little too far the other way. And this is my wake-up call.”
“I believe in you,” Sandoval said.
