The interview, shown at the end of Part 3 of the reunion (which aired June 7), has Raquel clarifying the timeline of her relationship with Sandoval and making other big reveals.


In the episode, it was revealed that “six days later, Raquel sat down for her final interview of the season,” and in that interview, she addressed more details about her affair with Sandoval, which ultimately led to the end of his nearly decade-long relationship with Ariana Madix.

Raquel’s interview took place with a show producer, and in their candid chat, she spoke on several never-before-revealed details about her situation with Sandoval, and she addressed the timeline of their affair.

“I think it’s important to me to tell the truth,” she said in Season 10 Episode 18. “I think that I’ve been lying and being so deceitful this entire time that I don’t want to lie anymore. And it’s all out there anyway, like the worst is out, yet I’m still finding myself having to lie about specific timeline things.”

What Did Raquel Leviss Reveal About the Timeline of Her Affair with Tom Sandoval?

Raquel opened up about the lingering “untruths” from the reunion sit-down with the cast days prior.
“He [Sandoval] feels like it would be less hurtful to say that this wasn’t going on for so long,” she shared on the June 7 episode, before revealing more about when it started to become a “regular thing.”
“The second time [we hooked up] was, it was actually during Mexico [at Scheana Shay’s wedding],” she said. “I was like, ‘We can’t see each other. This isn’t gonna be a thing.’ But then that first night in Cancun, he was drunk and trying to find his room, and I heard him talking in the hallway. And there was somebody working there, and he was, like, asking which direction the elevator was. And I was like, ‘Wait, come inside.’ That was the second time that we were physical and intimate with each other.”

When the producer asked in the episode if it became a “regular ongoing thing as of Mexico,” she said, “I don’t remember, like, how often it would happen, but it definitely, like, picked up speed more, like, after we wrapped filming.”

Did Raquel Leviss Go to St. Louis with Tom Sandoval?

She clarified that she has met his family: “I’ve met his mom. And she was aware of, like, the situation. That was in L.A.”
When pressed if she’s ever been to St. Louis, she first noted, “I can’t recall.”
From there, a photo of her and Tom flashed across the screen from a trip to his hometown, and she then confirmed that “it frickin’ happened.”

What Did Raquel Leviss Ask Tom Sandoval and Ariana Madix?

“I definitely felt really guilty. A huge part of me wanted to tell [Ariana]. It ate me alive not to tell her. I mean I even suggest[ed to Tom], I was like, ‘Maybe, what would Ariana think about having me as an addition [to your relationship]?’ And he was like, ‘No, no, no, she would not be into that.’”
She noted that she suggested it “because I love Ariana as a person. And then also I’m in love with Tom Sandoval. So, yeah, it didn’t seem like that far-fetched of an idea, but it was not something in question. God, he’s gonna kill me. I just hate lying so much.”

Did Raquel Leviss and Tom Sandoval Hook Up in the Jacuzzi?

She said no and then added, “He’s asked me to not disclose all this information. Especially now with being so isolated, I feel like Tom is, you know, my one person that I do have, and if I just, like, went and betrayed him, then I’d really have nobody.”

What Was the Big Secret Raquel Leviss Revealed at the End of the Reunion?

From there, with tears in her eyes, she revealed, “We’ve, like, the one story that we’ve agreed on getting straight. And I know that the reason why Tom wanted to lie about it is because it’s a really bad look to hook up with someone’s boyfriend in their own house when they’ve gone out of town, especially for a funeral of all things. I don’t know. This f-cking killed my soul. I am so sick of lying. I hate it. I hate being deceitful. It’s horrible.”
