Raquel Leviss reveals the current status of her relationship with Tom Sandoval
Raquel Leviss disclosed the current status of her relationship with her partner Tom Sandoval when she was approached by a paparazzo on Wednesday.
“I don’t know where our relationship is going,” she said as she sat outside the Blush Nail Bar in Los Angeles, video footage obtained by Page Six shows.
“We’re just trying to take these next steps and try to, you know, make amends, listen to everyone.”
The makeup-free ‘Vanderpump Rules’ star said she hoped to work out a solution with her aggrieved costars — including Sandoval’s dumped ex-girlfriend Ariana Madix — during the Season 10 reunion, taped Thursday at Los Angeles.
“I know a lot of people are angry, so I think it’s just a matter of taking these next steps and seeing where it leads,” she continued, adding that she and Sandoval “don’t put any label on” their status.
Still, Leviss, 28, noted that she and Sandoval, 40, were “taking a break at the moment.”
During her interview with the nail salon, the former pageant queen shared that her months-long flirtation with Sandoval “started out as a friendship” before it “morphed into something more.”
“But I’m sure we’ll get into the details tomorrow at the meeting,” she teased.
Leviss’ comments come weeks after sources exclusively told Page Six that she ghosted Sandoval following their date, widely referred to as the “Scandoval.”
“Tom hasn’t been able to find Raquel for several days,” an insider told Us on March 8. “He asked mutual acquaintances if they had heard from her, but he was unlucky. He cannot get in touch with her.
Another source added, “She completely ignored Tom.”
A few days prior, however, Page Six exclusively reported that Sandoval and Leviss kissed on camera during a scene filmed at the latter’s North Hollywood apartment on March 3.
Despite the kiss, their romance status remained “complicated,” an insider said.
As Page Six previously reported, Madix was watching Sandoval cover band Tom Sandoval & The Most Extras on March 1 when she discovered a sexually explicit video of Leviss on her phone.
It then emerged that the pair had been having a secret affair since at least July 2022, prompting Madix to dump Sandoval after nearly 10 years of dating.
Leviss and Sandoval have since issued a public apology to Madix, while the Something About Her co-founder first addressed the situation on March 16.
“To say I was devastated and broken is an understatement. However, I know I’m not alone in this,” she wrote in part via Instagram, concluding with, “What doesn’t kill me better run.”
“Vanderpump Rules” airs Wednesdays at 9 p.m. ET on Bravo.
