Tom Sandoval and Raquel Leviss seem to be done hiding their relationship after Scandoval.
According to pictures obtained by TMZ, the controversial pair were spotted dining at The Musso & Frank Grill in Hollywood on Thursday night after taping the explosive season 10 reunion for Vanderpump Rules — and they got pretty cozy! Sandoval and Raquel reportedly arrived at the restaurant around 10 p.m., grabbed a booth, and ordered a bottle of wine, oysters, and some entrées. While the pair did not show any PDA during the night, eyewitnesses told the outlet that they looked very much like a couple, as they sat very close to each other in a booth.
As for what the two talked about? The outlet reported that the reunion episode seemed to be on their minds at dinner, as they were caught by diners talking about what went down during filming. At one point, TMZ claims Raquel could be heard saying:
“I can’t believe she said that.”
It is unclear who she was speaking about – but it could be about several things since the entire cast reportedly blasted the duo over their affair during the five-hour-long filming session for the reunion.
And as you can expect, Sandoval and Raquel dined alone without their cast members. Instead, many of their co-stars, including Ariana Madix, went out to a bar and even took a moment to boo the two when a news segment about Scandoval appeared on the establishment’s TV. They made it clear they’re Team Ariana all the way – even after the reunion! You can ch-ch-check out the images from Sandoval and Raquel’s outing HERE.
There have been a lot of questions ever since their months-long affair was exposed earlier this month about whether Raquel and Sandoval would continue to pursue their relationship. The former pageant queen previously told her followers on Instagram that while she did still “care” for the 39-year-old cover band artist, she did not “want to label anything or predict what lies ahead” since needed time to “heal” from the cheating controversy.
When Raquel spoke with a photographer earlier this week, she claimed they were still “taking a break” from their romance, explaining:
“I don’t know where our relationship is going to be. We’re kind of just trying to get through these next few steps and trying to make amends – hear everybody out. I know a lot of people are angry. So I think just getting through these next few steps and seeing where it goes. We’re not putting a label on anything. We’re just kind of taking a break for now.”
However, TMZ reported that Sandoval and Raquel made it sound like they were still dating during the reunion! And this dinner seems to make it clear that these two are moving forward with their relationship – despite the backlash!
