Raquel Leviss is out and about in the world once more after checking out of a sustained treatment program at a mental health facility. But she’s NOT taking part in the latest Vanderpump Rules cast trip…
New paparazzi pictures this week show the embattled 28-year-old reality TV star hanging out down in Tucson, Arizona. That is quite a bit removed from the rest of the cast of Bravo‘s hit show, as they are right now filming scenes for their forthcoming season up in Lake Tahoe. So, the geographic (and psychological) rift remains!
It’s not just the pics of Raquel out and about in the south Arizona city that are gaining attention, though. The snaps alone are a big deal themselves. After all, these are the first public photos of the reality TV star after her mental health check-in following the revelation of her months-long shocking affair with Tom Sandoval behind his then-girlfriend Ariana Madix‘s back.
But beyond the images alone, it’s what she was wearing which is really piquing our interest!!
In the snaps, which were taking during a Tuesday outing, Raquel can be seen walking around with a baseball cap on which had four very, very interesting words written across it:
“Be a good person”
That’s quite the statement to make following her looooong Scandoval affair! You can see the curious hat for yourself — in images that show Leviss also rocking an oversized white t-shirt, black shorts, and sneakers — at the link HERE.
And that’s not all!! As we noted up top, the VPR crew is in Lake Tahoe right now filming what will no doubt be some fun and dramatic scenes for Andy Cohen‘s network. With Leviss in Tucson, she’s obviously not around the cast. Page Six cites an insider who claims she had been negotiating with Bravo’s producers to potentially join the Tahoe trip “for the right price,” but that appears to have fallen through. Alas!
Still, there is one ex-Leviss household member on the Tahoe vacay: Graham!!!
Yes, the dog formerly shared with Raquel’s former fiancé James Kennedy has been reunited with the DJ-slash-VPR star and his girlfriend Ally Lewber! In a new pair of photos posted to Instagram very late on Wednesday night, Kennedy noted that Graham had “made his way back home” in a touching and telling reveal!
Ch-ch-check it out for yourself (below):
“Look who made his way back home, back into my life, I’ll take care of you forever and I love you.”
That adorable pooch was initially adopted by Leviss and Kennedy back when they were together in 2018. Then, after they called off their engagement in 2021, the dog lived for a bit with the former pageant queen’s parents before moving back in with Leviss in recent years.
But now, Graham is very clearly all the way back with the 31-year-old Kennedy — and his 27-year-old girlfriend! Surprise! Pooch and dog dad both look happy as can be in those new pics, too. Happy for them!
What do U make of these two interesting developments, Perezcious readers?? What do y’all think about Raquel’s hat?! And James’ unexpected doggy reunion??
