Raquel Leviss Spent Valentine’s Day with Tom Schwartz: Here’s What Went Down
The Vanderpump Rules castmates had quite a night at Schwartz & Sandy’s, and there are photos of everything.
As we know from the trailer above, this season of Vanderpump Rules will heavily focus on the drama surrounding a hookup between Raquel Leviss and Tom Schwartz. Although the two recently shared that their relationship these days is not romantic, they have remained great friends who frequently hang out — most recently on Valentine’s Day.
On February 14, Raquel and Schwartz had a fun-filled night with a group of friends, including Tom Sandoval and Ariana Madix. Their evening at Schwartz & Sandy’s included beautiful cocktails, red wine, so much delicious food, and fabulous fashion. While Raquel donned blue jeans, a white crop top, and a pink blazer with matching heels, Ariana rocked a black-and-red top, a Valentine’s-inspired manicure, and small hearts on her face. The Toms, meanwhile, both wore black shirts.
Schwartz opened up about his make-out with Raquel during the February 8 episode of Watch What Happens Live with Andy Cohen. “Do you regret hooking up with Raquel now that you know how much it hurt Katie [Maloney]?” Andy asked, to which Schwartz replied, “I’m gonna go on the record: No regrets. Although I regret that I hurt Katie’s feelings.” When asked for his reaction to Katie referring to Raquel as a “fan girl” for wearing Tom Tom merchandise, Schwartz declared, “She’s one of our hype girls,” before Sandoval came to her defense, explaining, “Scheana [Shay] wears it [and] Ariana does.”
One night earlier, Raquel told Page Six where she and Schwartz currently stand. “We are really good friends. We hang out, and he’s a great guy,” she said. “As far as a romantic thing, it was more his decision to not pursue that. I think Katie had a big reasoning as to why. But I respect his decision, and I gained a really good friendship out of it.”
Seeing Raquel and Ariana at Schwartz & Sandy’s together isn’t exactly a surprise. The friends often document their nights out at the Toms’ cocktail lounge and restaurant, including one particularly fun-looking evening shortly after the business opened. In a November 2022 Instagram Story, Ariana declared she was “back in my favorite place” as she showed the cocktails, wine, mushroom beignets, sliders, and lobster corn dog she was sharing with Raquel.
