Peter Madrigal and Dayna Kathan don’t believe Raquel Leviss checked into a treatment center last week to address mental health concerns.

On Saturday, after Raquel announced, via her rep, that she was seeking help following a months-long affair with Tom Sandoval, the Vanderpump Rules stars spoke out against her on Instagram, saying that she is currently at a “spa,” not a mental health facility.

“Raquel and her family decided before the relationship was discovered that she would enter a voluntary facility for mental health counseling,” a statement from Raquel’s rep said on Friday. “Raquel had planned to admit herself before the VPR reunion was taped on March 23. She was scheduled to go in pre-reunion but decided she wanted to finish her filming commitment. Bravo and production were aware and in support of her journey towards better mental health.”

As Pump Rules fans may recall, Raquel mentioned her mental health struggles in her apology statement last month, which included a nod to Ariana Madix, the victim of her and Sandoval’s affair.

“[I am] reflecting on my choices, speaking to a counselor and I am learning things about myself such as my patterns of codependency and addiction to being and feeling loved,” she explained at the time. “I have sought emotional validation through intimate connections that are not healthy without regard for my own well-being, sometimes negatively affecting others and often prioritizing the intimate connection over my friendships. I am taking steps to understand my behavior and make healthier choices.”

But after confirming she entered treatment, Raquel was questioned.

“Not a mental facility! It’s a Spa Resort,” Peter wrote in a comment shared to an Instagram post from Real Vanderpump on Instagram, which mentioned that Raquel had gone to treatment.

“She’s at a spa,” Dayna added in a comment to a post from Glorified Gossip Girl.

Meanwhile, in response to their speculation, an insider assured Us Weekly that Raquel “is absolutely not at a ‘spa,’ Miraval Resort, or otherwise.”

“People looking to jump on the bandwagon for relevance and spreading misinformation and rumors should not only consider Raquel’s circumstances but also consider all of the people struggling with their mental health who are watching how people are reacting to this situation,” the source stated. “It will only make it harder for them to seek help.”

Vanderpump Rules season 10 airs Wednesdays at 9/8c on Bravo.
