“I think [Tom] was getting off on the creeping around [and] I think Raquel [was] fueling his ego, which a narcissist loves,” the Give Them Lala author, 32, alleged during the Thursday, March 16, episode of Heather McDonald’s “Juicy Scoop” podcast, noting the duo are “still” in touch. “She was a full groupie [and] thought he was the greatest thing since sliced bread. She was obsessed. He needs that, and then when they get caught, it’s the textbook ‘[Ariana Madix and I] weren’t in a good place,’ ‘We weren’t having sex anymore.’ I’ve seen this movie [and] I’ve read this book a million times.”
News broke earlier this month that Sandoval, 39, and longtime girlfriend Madix, 37, had separated after the TomTom cofounder had been involved in a months-long secret affair with Leviss, 28.
“I want to first and foremost apologize to everyone I’ve hurt through this process. Most of all, I want to apologize to Ariana,” the Tom Sandoval & the Most Extras frontman wrote via Instagram on March 7. “I made mistakes, I was selfish and made reckless decisions that hurt somebody I love. No one deserves to feel that pain so traumatically and publicly.”
Sandoval continued at the time: “I can only imagine how devastating this has been for Ariana and everyone around us. I feel really horrible about that. My biggest regret is that I dishonored Ariana. I never meant to disappoint so many people, including our loving families and friends.”
The former pageant queen, who split from ex-fiancé James Kennedy in December 2021, also issued a public apology regarding her involvement in the scandal. Since then, many of their Vanderpump Rules costars have been quick to weigh in — including Kent.
“I can’t stand Tom Sandoval, and the fact that he recorded her without her knowledge, if that’s really what happened, I think that’s absolutely disgusting,” the Give Them Lala Beauty founder confessed on Thursday, referring to the allegations that the Missouri native allegedly recorded Leviss during a NSFW FaceTime video, which Madix reportedly discovered earlier this month. “I feel like when a man does a woman dirty, the only thing they have after that is their girlfriends [to] lean into. To find out, it’s the girl you’re best friends with — who you’d usually go to in this situation to, like, give you strength — I just think the whole thing is dirty.”
Season 10 — which is currently airing on Bravo — has highlighted Leviss’ brief flings with costar Tom Schwartz and Garcelle Beauvais’ son Oliver Saunders, who claimed he was separated from now-estranged wife Samantha Saunders, before making out with Leviss.
“If we didn’t know what we know now, then the audience would be torn because you do see [Raquel and I] laughing and [our friend group] making fun of her,” Kent told McDonald, 52, of watching the former Miss Sonoma County’s drunk antics during their Las Vegas trip on the Wednesday, March 15, episode. “We were having so much fun, like, when she got back, where I drew the line was when she spilled a plate of food on my floor where I’m gonna sleep in that bedroom. I’m very weird about where I’m sleeping [and] the smell of food. Then she got marinara sauce on the blanket that my mom just washed for me before the trip. I was like, ‘Enough already.’”
