PHOTOS: Raquel Leviss is Spotted in "Be a Nice Person" Hat in Arizona as Lala Feuds With Sandoval While Filming Pump Rules in Lake Tahoe, Plus Ariana and Katie Hire Something About Her Staff

Raquel Leviss has been spotted for the first time publicly since her two-month stint at Arizona’s The Meadows, where she underwent intense therapy after facing major backlash for her months-long affair with former BFF Ariana Madix‘s now-ex-boyfriend Tom Sandoval.

As Raquel surfaced in a “Be a Nice Person” hat in Tuscon, Arizona, Lala Kent was seen yelling at Sandoval amid their Vanderpump Rules cast trip to Lake Tahoe, and Ariana and Katie Maloney were seen filming scenes for season 11 with their Something About Her partner, Penny Davidi, in Los Angeles.

“So we’re back at it, filming season 11 [of] Vanderpump Rules,” Penny told her followers on her Instagram Story on July 19. “Today’s episode is hiring new staff so we’re doing the staff interviews, which should be super exciting. I’m here in a restaurant, can’t name it where, but waiting for the girls to show up so we can interview staff.”

“Be ready. Buckle up, b-tches!” Penny continued, later adding pics with Ariana and Katie to her page.

As Ariana and Katie filmed in L.A., their castmates, including Tom Schwartz, Scheana Shay, Brock Davies, James Kennedy, and Ally Lewber, filmed in Lake Tahoe, where Lala was seen yelling across a table at Sandoval during a group dinner.

Although it was noted last week that producers were hoping to make a deal with Raquel that would ensure she’d be a part of the cast trip to Lake Tahoe, that deal doesn’t appear to have been made — at least not yet. Instead, as of Tuesday, she was spending time with family in Tucson.

In photos shared by Page Six on July 19, Raquel was seen in a hat that read, “Be a Good Person,” as well as a white T-shirt, a striped button-down, black shorts, and white tennis shoes.

According to a Page Six insider, Raquel still seems to be playing “hardball” when it comes to returning to Pump Rules for season 11.

“She wants to get as much money as she possibly can so she is playing hardball,” an insider previously shared.  “For the right price, she will be [in Lake Tahoe].”

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