After reportedly getting “annihilated” by their castmates at the taping due to the months-long affair they had behind the back of Ariana Madix, Sandoval and Raquel ventured to The Musso & Frank Grill in Hollywood, California, to share a meal.
According to a March 25 report from TMZ, Sandoval and Raquel arrived at the restaurant around 10 p.m. last Thursday with none of their co-stars. They sat together in a booth, where sources said they showed no PDA but looked very much like a couple.
During the outing, Sandoval and Raquel enjoyed a bottle of wine, oysters, and some entrées. And at one point, they seemed to be discussing the reunion taping as Raquel was overheard complaining about one of their female castmates.
“I can’t believe she said that,” she reportedly said.

As for Ariana, an insider told PEOPLE on March 24 said that she “is so strong” and “did great” at the reunion, and they added that she and Katie Maloney “are putting all of this energy into their business and moving faster than ever towards opening [their sandwich shop].”
“And then, it’s just out there for the whole world,” Scheana continued. “But I think the way that the whole world has rallied behind her, she just has this crazy sense of empowerment that she’s just pulling through and pushing through, and she’s doing as best as she can.”
The PEOPLE insider went on to share that Sandoval and Raquel “were defensive” at the reunion taping last Thursday.
“It was basically everyone against them. They are not displaying empathy at all,” the source stated.
