Tom Sandoval Insults Ex Rachel Leviss In First 7 Minutes Of VPR Reunion!

Tom Sandoval Insults Ex Rachel Leviss During First 7 Minutes Of VPR Reunion!

Tom Sandoval just couldn’t resist getting in a few digs at Rachel Leviss during the Vanderpump Rules reunion!

Following the explosive season finale on Tuesday night, Bravo released a preview of the opening moments of the upcoming reunion episode. And it looks like the cast wasted no time addressing the elephant in the room — how Rachel didn’t return for Season 11 following her affair with Sandoval! During the first seven minutes, Andy Cohen asked Lisa Vanderpump if she expected the former pageant queen to return to the show. To which she replied:

“All of her actions were so kind of unpredictable. I really didn’t know. All this nonsense on a podcast and her denigrating everyone — it’s absolutely ridiculous.”

As for Sandoval? He also had no idea if Rachel would come back. However, the bar owner said he “always encouraged her to take some time away from everybody, including” himself, “and come to her decision that way.” Rachel would say otherwise, obviously! She previously claimed Sandoval called her “selfish” and was “guilt-tripping” her for taking time to work on herself at a mental health facility during the cheating scandal backlash. So was Sandoval actually encouraging her to take a beat away from everyone? Hmm.

Ultimately, Rachel chose to bow out of the show. No one got the opportunity to have a post-Scandoval conversation with her once the initial anger died down. So looking back, Andy asked the cast if they had “any regrets” about their last words to her at the previous reunion. As you will recall, most of the group slammed Rachel for secretly messing around with Sandoval while being close friends with Ariana Madix. Lala Kent, in particular, was very vocal about her anger with Rachel and Sandy! However, she stood by her words at the last reunion:

“As time passes, there’s healing that happens. And I think had she come back, we would have had a very productive conversation. But I stand behind everything that I said at that reunion.”

Obviously Ariana has zero regrets! She said:

“I mean I had the courage to stand up to my perpetrators. I can’t believe I even showed up that day.”

However, Lala did praise Rachel — and even Sandoval —  for having the courage to show up to film the special despite knowing they were in for a verbal smackdown. She argued:

“Well, I think credit needs to be given to her with that. Because I’m very proud of Ariana for coming and facing something that was very difficult. She had a solid support system physically in the room and outside, right? For Tom and Raquel to show up — now that was like, ‘Damn, I consider myself a tough bitch, I don’t think I could have. I don’t think I would have.’”

Sandoval doesn’t see it that way, though! He slammed Rachel for being a “f**king coward” and constantly talking about all things Scandoval on her podcast, even though she claimed to have moved on:

“Looking back, I think she’s a f**king coward. Like, I’m sorry to say it. And I think her sitting here preaching to everybody that she’s moving on but still talking relentlessly about me and everybody is just f**king ridiculous.”

Yeesh! Sandoval is clearly still upset about her comments over the past year! But now he should expect more heat coming his way. Once Rachel catches wind of this insult, we bet she’ll have a few more unkind words to say about her ex-lover in an upcoming podcast episode! Watch a clip of the sneak peek:
