Following weeks of rumors in regard to the Vanderpump Rules stars’ apparently blooming romance, which is believed to have been sparked during their trip to Mexico in August for Scheana Shay and Brock Davies‘ wedding, Tom and Raquel were caught getting close at The Bayou in West Hollywood, California.
In a photo shared by Bravo and Cocktails on Instagram on September 15, Tom was seen smiling as Raquel stood in front of him, seemingly feeding him some sort of shot from an oversized plastic syringe.
“Raquel Leviss and Tom Schwartz were spotted out last night getting ‘cozy’ (and by cozy we mean making out, partying it up… and having a great time) at nightclub [The Bayou]. [Joe Hollywood] also joined the happy couple and exclusively told [Real Vanderpump] that ‘they were so cute together,'” the page stated.
An additional report from Bravo and Cocktails‘ website included another insider account.
“I saw Raquel and Tom last night! They were at The Bayou in Weho. Fully making out. Like I know they hooked up but was crazy to see them together. All night!” their source claimed.
Although Tom and Raquel have remained tight-lipped about their potential relationship, Tom admitted to taking a liking to Raquel during an appearance on Scheana’s podcast, Scheananigans, in July. At the time, in addition to discussing his divorce from estranged wife Katie Maloney, Tom said he hadn’t given Raquel a fair shot in the past.
“Raquel is, she was always cool… I never really gave her a chance to like, I was in my… She has so much depth and character. I think I wrote her off as maybe… Raquel is like, there is a Raquelessaince… She is cool as sh-t,” he gushed.
“[Raquel] and Katie aren’t close. If they were, she wouldn’t have hooked up with Tom. She has no regrets,” the source told Us Weekly. “Katie is the one who made the decision to divorce Tom. Whatever he does with another girl is none of her business, friends believe.”
Vanderpump Rules season 10 is expected to return to Bravo sometime in early 2023.
