Days after Andy Cohen shared a video from backstage in which Lala said she was ready to get her “claws” into a couple of people in particular, a report claims she and James “went crazy” on Sandoval and Raquel, whose months-long affair was revealed publicly weeks ago.
“The cast was out of control and Lala Kent and James Kennedy went crazy,” an insider tells Us Weekly on March 27. “James took on Tom Sandoval while Lala took on Raquel Leviss and they both just lit them on fire and burned them alive with their shade.”
“Lala and James literally screamed at Raquel and Tom for hours,” the source added.
According to the report, the Pump Rules cast doesn’t want “anything to do with” Raquel after learning Sandoval cheated with her on Ariana Madix. However, in terms of filming in the future, she’s still needed for season 11.
“It would be impossible to begin filming next season and act like the bombshell affair never happened and Tom and Raquel are still together,” the source explained.
Although Raquel was temporarily on the “chopping block” with Bravo because “no one wanted to film with her next season,” the ratings on season 10 have been “incredible” as her affair with Sandoval continues to make headlines.
Following the taping of the reunion last Thursday, the divide among the cast was evident, with Sandoval and Raquel enjoying a low-key dinner date in Los Angeles and several others, including Ariana, Scheana Shay, Katie Maloney, Kristen Doute, and former cast member Dayna Kathan, venturing to a local bar for some cocktails.
“We did it! And I love you,” Scheana told Ariana in a video shared to her Instagram Story, which featured the two of them enjoying a couple of espresso martinis.
Meanwhile, in a clip shared by Kristen, she told Ariana and Scheana, “I love you girls and I’m so f-cking proud of you.”
And in a video posted to Dayna’s Instagram Story, their group at the bar was seen booing and giving thumbs down as a television aired a news segment about Sandoval and Raquel’s affair.
“Any questions?” she asked.
Vanderpump Rules season 10 airs Wednesdays at 9/8c on Bravo.
