Raquel Leviss Visited Tom Sandoval In His Hometown In DECEMBER -- But Family Didn't Want To Meet Her!!

Raquel Leviss Visited Tom Sandoval In His Hometown In DECEMBER -- But Family Didn't Want To Meet Her!!

As it turns out, Tom Sandoval was so comfortable with Raquel Leviss months before they were outed to the world that he chose to bring her home to Missouri to meet the family.

…And Tom’s family was so uncomfortable with the situation that they declined the rendezvous. Good for them!

According to TMZ, Tom was so cool with leaking the salacious connection he had with his Vanderpump Rules co-star out to his closest compatriots that he brought her home to St. Louis, Missouri in late December of last year. The duo took a pic together posing in front of one of the Midwestern city’s most iconic tourist sites — the Apotheosis of St. Louis sculpture — and were very clearly there for each other on the 1-on-1 trip. (You can see that sculpture-going snap HERE.)

Per the outlet, the two “spent time together” in St. Louis for a few days right around the New Year. And the Tom Sandoval & The Most Extras frontman even “brought her to hang out with some of his closest friends.” Remember, this was months before their affair was first brought to light. Tom and longtime girlfriend Ariana Madix were still very much a thing!!

And yet the outlet claims Tom’s family knew the 28-year-old Leviss was in town with him but they had “no interest in meeting her.” As far as they were concerned, Sandoval’s family believed it was “inappropriate for him to bring another girl home” while he was still in a relationship with Madix. Which is correct, of course. Plus, the news org claims the TomTom owner’s family “didn’t support his seemingly new, secret relationship” with his reality TV co-star. The vibes were off!!!

After Tom struck out with family members, he tried to make his new connection happen with childhood friends. He apparently told his hometown pals about how he had been “trying to break things off with Ariana” before heading home for the December holiday. He even asserted the two were “going to therapy together” near the end of their relationship. But of course, as we know now, their relationship didn’t end then. It only crumbled early last month after Leviss and Sandoval’s jaw-dropping affair was first uncovered.

It seems like Sandoval struck out on a third late December move through the Midwest, as well. After that failed St. Louis family visit, Tom and Raquel drove to Chicago so the cover band frontman could perform in one of his shows. However, Leviss opted not to attend the venue in person out of fear she’d be recognized. Which honestly was probably the right idea. But basically it all totaled up to three back-home hangout attempts — family, friends, cover band fans — and three big misses.

Three strikes and you’re out!!

Sure seems like Tom’s family and friends weren’t feeling the new visitor’s vibes once they first caught a whiff of the connection he had with Raquel. And knowing what we know now, it definitely seems like they were on to something. Just saying!!

Reactions, Perezcious readers??
