A few months ago, the Vanderpump Rules’ Scandoval situation blew up and clogged every crevice of the internet after Tom Sandoval cheated on Ariana Madix with cast member Raquel Leviss, but now that the stink has settled, people are slowly moving on with their lives. BUT WAIT! After part two of the Vanderpump Rules reunion dropped Wednesday, Real Housewives of Beverly Hills alum Brandi Glanville pulled out her Twitter like a switchblade and cut into the VPR cast for their “fucking hypocrisy” for being appalled at someone’s cheating ways since they’re all cheaters!
“Scandoval” Signs Started To Surface On Last Night’s Episode Of “Vanderpump Rules,” And Scheana Shay Addressed Her Altercation With Raquel Leviss
As a Bravo enthusiast, even I was starting to feel like the Vanderpump Rules “Scandoval” mess was dragging on and becoming stale. But then came last night’s episode, where clues that something in the milk wasn’t clean between Tom Sandoval and (Rachel) Raquel Leviss started to emerge, and knowing all that we know now, it caused me to whip out my Jessica Fletcher magnifying glass to analyze their every interaction. It seemed like cast members Ally Lewber, Katie Maloney, and even Lisa Vanderpump herself were starting to have their suspicions as well. And after VPR aired, Scheana Shay was on Watch What Happens Live and came clean about getting physical with Raquel upon learning of the affair AND put the rumors that “that hoe” tried to seduce her husband, Brock Davies, to rest.
Vanderpump Rules fans have seen their fair share of bitch slaps, sucker punches, and hand-shaped red marks over the years to know assault is totally within the realm of possibility between this show’s cast members, but we’ll never really know if Scheana Shay gave her castmate Raquel Leviss a black eye because the temporary restraining order that Raquel got against Scheana has been officially dismissed after Raquel was a no-show at court. Either way, Raquel’s word basically means nothing to anyone after sneaking around in her months-long affair with Tom Sandoval behind Ariana Madix’s back.
Yesterday, Bravo executives led by Andy Cohen definitely did the “We’re In The Money” shuffle while going into the studio to tape the 10th season finale of Vanderpump Rules. Obviously, the reunion will be a Scandoval showdown where Tom Sandoval and Raquel Leviss will answer for their sins after their months-long affair behind the back of their fellow castmate and Tom’s girlfriend, Ariana Madix. The reunion was taped yesterday, and the producers were definitely popping bottle after bottle during filming because the reunion reportedly brought an almost physical fight and a legal stunt involving Scheana Shay. If Lisa Vanderpump really did pay Raquel Leviss to have this affair for ratings, then Lisa is the new Suze Orman since she made a wise business investment.
Vanderpump Rules’ Raquel Leviss has been literally and figuratively punched in the face (allegedly) in the fallout from her and Tom Sandoval’s illicit months-long liaison behind the back of Tom’s long-time girlfriend/Raquel’s good friend, Ariana Madix. Though Raquel issued a totally PR-crafted apology on her Instagram a few weeks ago where she declared she’s not a victim, apologized, and then listed all of the ways she’s a victim, she just publicly spoke out about the scandal sweeping the nation yesterday with a TMZ staffer while sitting outside of a nail salon–all the while sporting an inappropriate grin.
Two weeks after the Vanderpump Rules Scandoval affair scorched the Bravo-verse and caused Andy Cohen to prolapse with glee over all the attention, Ariana Madix has finally released a statement to share her side of their story. As those who care know, Ariana dumped her co-star/boyfriend of 9 years, Tom Sandoval, after discovering he was having a months-long affair with fellow VPR castmate Raquel Leviss. Both Tom and Raquel have already dropped standard apologies, and now Ariana is talking. Ariana, who deleted her Instagram Megan Fox-style after the news broke out, reactivated her account to share her side of the story and thank her friends, VPR castmates, and fans for the “outpouring of love and support.”
