Tom Sandoval celebrated his 40th birthday over the weekend with a group of friends, four cakes, and possibly, Raquel Leviss.

Amid filming on the upcoming 11th season of Vanderpump Rules, Sandoval’s party was seen in a series of social media posts, one of which seemed to feature Raquel in the background, as his former girlfriend, Ariana Madix, enjoyed time with her new beau, New York-based fitness trainer Daniel Wai, in Los Angeles.

“L.A. week recap!” Daniel wrote in the caption of an Instagram Reel on July 9, which featured several photos of him and Ariana.

In one particular photo, taken at a pool, Ariana was seen giving Daniel a kiss on his cheek.

And in a comment response to Daniel’s Reel, Ariana made it clear that she’s looking forward to his next trip.

“[I don’t know] why yay fireworks is taking me out … ok come back again thanks,” she told him.

Meanwhile, in videos shared to Instagram by Billie Lee, via a Pump Rules fan page on Instagram, Sandoval’s party decor was seen.

“Here’s Billie Lee’s Stories for Tom Sandoval’s Birthday,” they wrote in the caption.

“Scanning all background voices for Raquel? And apparently Tom retained enough friends to have 4 small cakes for his birthday!” the fan page wrote in their caption as IG users suggested her voice was heard in the clip of Sandoval’s nail art seen below.

Sandoval turned 40 on July 7.

While Raquel hasn’t been seen publicly since she entered a mental health facility in March, following her months-long affair with Sandoval, an insider told TMZ last month that she would be exiting the undisclosed location “soon” — and discussing her potential return to the show.

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