REPORT: Bravo is Still Working on Deal With Raquel Leviss, "[Wants] Her Back" for Pump Rules Season 11 as She's Seen in New Pics in Arizona

A new report is giving an update on Raquel Leviss’ contract negations.

Bravo is said to be in talks with Raquel as they attempt to make a deal to get her back on Vanderpump Rules for its 11th season, which has been in production since late June.

As the rest of the cast films in Los Angeles after a trip to Lake Tahoe, the network is doing its best to get Raquel recommitted to the series as she remains in Arizona, where she was spotted leaving a Whole Foods in Tucson, Arizona, over the weekend.

In photos shared by the Daily Mail on August 14, Raquel was seen walking out of the grocery store in a long blue button-down over a white T-shirt with black shorts and white shoes.

As she carried a brown paper bag, Raquel showcased a fresh-faced look with her dark hair down and AirPods in her ears.

While the cast of Pump Rules is reportedly convinced that Raquel, who was caught having an affair with Tom Sandoval, her best friend Ariana Madix‘s boyfriend, in March, will not play a role in season 11, executive producer Alex Baskin told The Hollywood Reporter in July that he and his team were having “ongoing conversations” with her.

“I imagine there will be an update fairly soon. But, for now, we’re still in dialogue with her,” he revealed.

Still, in the weeks since the interview, Raquel has continued to be seen in Arizona, far away from the Bravo cameras.

Although there doesn’t seem to be much hope for a Raquel sighting on season 11, another insider said that as filming for the upcoming season nears its end, a plan is still being worked on.

“Bravo and Evolution are still trying to piece together a deal with her and want her back,” the insider told The Messenger on August 14.

As Pump Rules fans well know, Raquel checked into a mental health facility in Arizona in March, following the taping of the season 10 reunion, where she remained through July.

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