According to a recent source, Raquel Leviss replaced her PR team, and she is hoping to craft the “narrative” that Tom Sandoval took advantage of her during their reported affair amid his relationship with Ariana Madix.
Vanderpump Rules castmates Lala Kent, Katie Maloney, and Kristen Doute slammed Raquel over the allegation while a fan showed alleged documentation that Raquel’s real name is “Rachel.”
In a @deuxmoi post shared by @bestofbravo, a source alleged Raquel “fired her PR,” which happened to be the same team representing Sandoval.
“Her new team is already on the offensive, crafting the narrative that Raquel is also a victim in all of this. When she films with Sandoval later today, she’s been advised (and is planning) to break things off with him,” said the source. “TBD if that happens.”
“The plan is to then go after him for screen recording the FaceTime sex session without Raquel’s consent, which was uncovered by Ariana on Sandoval’s phone and led to the unraveling of events. They’re planning to allege that Sandoval took advantage of Raquel while she was in a vulnerable moment in life, clouding her judgment, then recording intimate videos without her knowledge,” the source continued.
They also claimed Raquel will go on an “apology tour” afterward, though she’s allegedly more concerned with “correcting the record on the ‘finger banging’ vid than taking accountability.”
“And just for the record, she didn’t have these ideas, nor plans to distance from Sandoval, until her new PR relayed their strategy to try and save her image,” said the source.
After sharing the report, Kristen wrote, “She’s not even slightly sorry. Disgusting.”
Lala also addressed the allegations, speculating that Raquel’s team is trying to make her look “dumb.” She added that the strategy will not “work.”
The mother of one also suggested she should get a cut of Raquel’s PR money because she created Raquel’s “oblivious to life” image. She also declared in another post, “I tried to tell y’all. She is sick. Someone call her mama.”
Her co-star Katie called out the report, claiming it’s an example of “more nefarious behavior.” She also shared a message of support for Ariana: “You are going to thrive like you were always meant to!”
Scheana Shay declared her similar support, writing, “Always got your back!” She also called herself, “#TeamAriana.”
According to a post shared by @queensofbravoplus, Raquel’s new PR rep is also representing controversial star Erika Jayne from Real Housewives of Beverly Hills.
Meanwhile, in a post shared by @allabouttrh, a fan posted alleged proof that Raquel changed her “real name.”
“When you find out Raquel went to your husbands high school and her real name is actually Rachel,” wrote @princestongirl818 on TikTok, along with the yearbook footage.
Vanderpump Rules season 10 airs Wednesdays at 9/8c on Bravo.
