Vanderpump Rules to Begin Filming Season 11 Without Raquel Leviss, Plus Sandoval and Ariana Return as Lala Admits to Feeling Anxious

Vanderpump Rules season 11 is set to begin filming this Wednesday. But will Raquel Leviss be returning to the series? Her status is revealed below, plus find out which cast members are returning.

As exes Tom Sandoval and Ariana Madix, who split in March after his affair with Raquel was uncovered, and the rest of the cast, including Scheana Shay, Brock Davies, James Kennedy, and Tom Schwartz, prepare for the start of production, Lala Kent is feeling admittedly anxious about the drama that is sure to come.

“We start filming on Wednesday,” Lala shared on Monday, via a clip posted by Queens of Bravo on Instagram. “It’s giving me anxiety. They sent us like, what our schedule may look like. It’s subject to change, and I’m just like, ‘Oh, we’re like, really in it again.’”

According to Lala, she and her Pump Rules castmates are used to having more time between seasons.

“We usually have so much time to just kind of process. Things change a lot but it’s like, nope. This is the first time that it was, film a season, oh wait, something really crazy happened, pick back up cameras, ‘Here’s nine episodes to watch by tomorrow for the reunion. Oh, and by the way, you only have X amount of weeks before we start again,’” she noted before adding, “I’m not complaining though.”

In more Vanderpump Rules news, TMZ confirmed production on season 11 will begin on Wednesday, June 27, and they said that Raquel hasn’t committed to the new season quite yet, although she is said to currently be in negotiations to return.

As Pump Rules fans well know, Raquel checked herself into treatment for mental health concerns shortly after filming the reunion in March and has been there ever since.

While production has been working with Raquel’s team in hopes of getting her back on the show, she’s said to be focused on her mental health and has not spoken out in recent weeks in regard to her thoughts about making a potential return.

That said, Raquel did tell Andy Cohen at the reunion, “I don’t know. It’s in question right now. I want to.”

Vanderpump Rules season 11 is expected to premiere on Bravo sometime later this year or early next year.
