Oliver Saunders‘ soon-to-be ex-wife, Samantha Saunders, put him on blast ahead of Wednesday night’s new episode of Vanderpump Rules, insisting they were very much together when Oliver flirted with Lala Kent and made out with Raquel Leviss amid a cast trip to Las Vegas.
Months after the ladies ventured into Vanderpump à Paris, where Oliver works, to film a scene for season 10, Samantha took to her Instagram Story with a series of messages about the then-upcoming episode, slamming Oliver for seeing their son an example of “lying and cheating.”
“Tomorrow is going to be a really hard day for me! The fact that [people] think is cute and flaunting what they did is beyond painful! You know what you did!!! … Completely delusional! I deserve so much more respect than this!“ Samantha vented on March 7, as seen in a set of screenshots shared by a Pump Rules fan page on Instagram.
She then wrote in a second post, “Last thing!! I think the biggest part is our son will see how you handled this whole situation! Your setting an example of lying and cheating. No respect for your wife, kid [and] step kids! No apology! No remorse!”
Samantha went on to reveal that she and Oliver are currently “in the process of divorce.” As Pump Rules fans may recall, Oliver filed for divorce in September 2022, weeks after filming with Lala and Raquel.
Hours after her posts were shared, on March 8, Samantha returned with a third message for her online followers.
“Let’s be very clear! We were not separated!! I was straight played! He lied to everyone!” she declared.
At the time of Oliver’s rendezvous with Raquel last year, Samantha said that despite Raquel’s involvement, she was not to blame for Oliver’s infidelity.
“FYI- I don’t blame Raquel,” Samantha wrote in an Instagram Story post last September 3. “She did nothing wrong and has been respectful and supportive.”
Meanwhile, an insider told Page Six that Oliver allegedly lied to Raquel about the status of his marriage to Samantha.
“Oliver told Raquel he was separated and that they were in the process of getting a divorce,” the source said. “Raquel would have never pursued him if she had known that wasn’t the case at the time.”
“Garcelle did not want me to talk about it publicly. That is why she has unfollowed me and blocked me,” she shared.
Raquel also spoke to Page Six around the time of the incident, accusing Oliver of manipulating her.
“I would like to clarify that I did not know Oliver had a wife. He misled me,” she said. “I was in Vegas this year just trying to have a good time being single, and we didn’t hook up either, by the way. Just wanted to clarify all that.”
Vanderpump Rules season 10 airs Wednesdays at 9/8c on Bravo.
