Tom Sandoval was seen crying during a filmed outing at SUR earlier this week.

As Sandoval remains under fire with his Vanderpump Rules co-stars due to the months-long affair he had with Raquel Leviss while in a nine-year relationship with Ariana Madix, his former mistress is reportedly playing “hardball” with Bravo as she attempts to get “as much money as” possible for her potential season 11 return.

“She wants to get as much money as she possibly can so she is playing hardball,” the insider told Page Six on July 12.

According to the report, executives are hoping a deal will be made before the cast’s upcoming trip to Lake Tahoe and that “[Raquel] will appear.”

“But for the right price, she will be there,” the insider added.

Although she is expected to start “filming soon,” the source went on to say that Raquel, who checked into a mental health facility in March after her and Sandoval’s affair was uncovered, is “genuinely concerned for her well-being.”

Watching the reunion was excruciating,” the insider shared. “The way the other women just completely tore her apart and essentially wished her dead. It was just a lot to take.”

In addition to not being seen publicly since March, Raquel has also not seen her castmates since the reunion, which was filmed that month.

Although Sandoval and Raquel have not confirmed their relationship status recently, they were said to have split in May.

“Raquel dipped out. Sandoval is not the one for her,” an insider told Page Six at the time.

As for Sandoval’s recent outing with his co-stars, he was seen wiping tears from his eyes as he sat at a table in a black and white sweater as Ariana, Lala Kent, and Scheana Shay were seen nearby.

As Pump Rules fans may have seen, Sandoval’s outing with the cast was his first group event with them. And, as expected, emotions were running high with Scheana yelling at him outside of SUR as James Kennedy DJed inside, and Katie Maloney, Kristen Doute, and Ally Lewber were also seen.

“If you hadn’t f***ed Raquel,” Scheana was heard saying at one point amid the heated chat.

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