Did Raquel Leviss possibly hint about her alleged affair with Tom Sandoval just days before the news broke of his breakup with Ariana Madix?!?! What a difference some context makes…
In case you haven’t heard about the Vanderpump Rules scandal yet, the rumor out on Friday that the 28-year-old reality star not only hooked up with Tom Schwartz but had been involved with Tom Sandoval too! Raquel was getting with all of the Toms, apparently… According to TMZ, Ariana found out about the 39-year-old’s alleged infidelity in the last couple of days and left him.
The news was unexpected for Bravo fans, too, who have watched Ariana and Sandoval’s relationship play out on the reality series for nine years. However, it seems like Raquel might have been leaving little breadcrumbs about an affair with Sandoval! Because just days before the news dropped, she admitted on TV that the singer was the more attractive Tom!
During an appearance on Watch What Happens Live with Andy Cohen on Wednesday, Raquel and Scheana Shay were asked who they believed was “the hotter Tom” on VPR. And to everyone’s surprise — including Scheana’s — the former pageant queen responded not with the one we already knew she hooked up with, but with “Sandoval.” She didn’t offer any explanation, but we cannot help but notice the look on her face after her confession… Yeah, it seems pretty sus now! Ch-ch-check out the moment (below):

Of course, viewers most likely guessed that Raquel would have said Schwartz, considering they had a fling during Scheana and Brock Davies’ wedding over the summer – against his ex-wife Katie Maloney’s wishes. But nope! She replied with Sandoval. And that wasn’t the only strange detail to surface.
She also told Page Six’s Virtual Reali-tea co-host Danny Murphy days ago that she recently spoke with both of the Toms! When asked who was “the last cast member” she’d “texted with,” Raquel spilled:
“I have a text thread with Tom and Tom. Mine is from Schwartz saying, ‘Raq, come kick it with us tomorrow. See ya mañana.’”
She then explained to Scheana:
“That was the night we went to [their new bar] Schwartz & Sandy’s, which is the night that I posted that photo.”
As we previously reported, the pictures in question were shared by Raquel last month, which feature her and Schwartz outside of his and Sandoval’s restaurant, Schwartz and Sandy’s. Katie called the former fiancée of James Kennedy “desperado” for posting the pic amid their beef. Wow… Did everyone miss the signs, or what? Were we just too focused on the Schwartz drama?!
We can bet more clues and deets about the situation will come out in the next couple of days. But in the meantime, what are your thoughts on the matter, Perezcious readers? Sound OFF in the comments below!
