Raquel Leviss returned to Instagram for the first time since her controversial interview with Bethenny Frankel to share a video of a flower farm on Saturday.

After announcing she would not be returning to Vanderpump Rules for its upcoming 11th season, which wrapped production earlier this month, Raquel shared her clip with her fans as she reacted to their supportive messages in the comments section of her post and teased her new podcast.

“I’ve been dreaming of a place like this,” Raquel wrote in the caption of the September 9 post, also including hashtags for “flower farm” and “flower arranging.”

Following the sharing of her post, Raquel was met with a lengthy message from a supportive follower who offered her encouragement and pointed out that most 20-something-year-olds make mistakes.

“[I’m] SO glad that you’ve allowed comments as I’ve wanted to encourage you – realistically you probably won’t see this LOL but it’s all good … You are such a lovely young lady and deserve the world – just like anyone else in this world,” the person wrote. “We ALL make mistakes, we just don’t have ours broadcast all over the world for everyone to see. I’m sure that many casting stones at you were living in glass houses. I CRINGE at the thought of some of my 20-ish year old self’s antics on display for my friends, family and public to witness and comment on. You do YOU! You’ve got your whole life ahead of you, Rachel and I pray for peace and happiness for you.”

“Thank you for the kind words,” Raquel, who has returned to her birth name, Rachel, replied.

During her interview with Bethenny, 52, in August, Raquel, who left Pump Rules after her months-long affair with Tom Sandoval, 40, was exposed, shared her plans to start a podcast.

“I really am impassioned by learning about myself and the psychology behind all of this and I am taking the steps to start my own podcast,” she said on Just B With Bethenny. “I feel like it would be a great way to share my side of the story and bring on experts that really understand the psychology behind it. And I feel like this is an area that’s untapped because nobody really wants to talk about being the other woman as for as many people that are hurt by this affair, there’s equally as many people that have been that [other person].”

Vanderpump Rules season 11 is expected to start airing on Bravo sometime later this year or in early 2024.
