Raquel Leviss has at least one fan remaining following the news of her shocking affair with Tom Sandoval.
While the Vanderpump Rules cast and the show’s many viewers have turned on both Raquel and Sandoval, choosing to instead side with her one-time close friend and his ex-girlfriend, Ariana Madix, Tom Schwartz‘s rumored girlfriend, Jo Wenberg, praised her in a post shared to her private Instagram Story earlier this week.
“Jo is [obviously] Team Raquel,” a Pump Rules fan page on Instagram announced to their followers on March 29.
“If you don’t know who Jo is, she was mentioned early on in season 10. Schwartz described her as a ‘friend’ who was staying with him … Kristen Doute has also said Jo *was* her bff for years.”
In Jo’s post, as seen in a screenshot shared by the Pump Rules fan account, she included a photo of herself and Raquel, along with the message, “I like everything about you everything!”
Following the sharing of the post, Schwartz’s ex-wife, Katie Maloney, offered a comment in which she expressed her disgust with a series of cringe emojis.
Although many have suspected that Schwartz was well-aware of what was going on between Raquel and Sandoval behind the back of Ariana, an insider told E! News last week that he only learned of their months-long affair three weeks before the rest of the world.
“Sandoval confided in Schwartz approximately three weeks before the news broke out, telling him he was having an affair with Raquel and that he was planning on telling Ariana,” the source revealed. “Schwartz urged him to tell Ariana right away.”
Jax Taylor also discussed the matter on Watch What Happens Live, claiming he and Schwartz had a conversation about when he found out.
“I talk to Schwartz every day so I know for a fact, for a hundred percent fact, on my child, he told me he knew,” Jax revealed. “He goes, ‘I knew for a while,’ and kinda like left it at that but then he said, ‘I tried to tell him to come forward with it.’ So that’s what he’s told me, verbatim. I gotta take his word for it.”
Vanderpump Rules season 10 airs Wednesdays at 9/8c on Bravo.
