Raquel Leviss‘ TomTom hoodies and lightning bolt necklace have just been listed on eBay.

In honor of Mental Health Day on Tuesday, the former Vanderpump Rules cast member, who now goes by her birth name, Rachel, took to her Instagram page to reveal that she would be unloading the items in an effort to create a healthier home environment and distance herself from the “triggering” pieces.

In a description of her TomTom hoodies on eBay, Raquel, 29, said that although she “can’t rewrite history,” she “can use something from my darkest days towards a good cause.”

As of Wednesday morning, less than 24 hours after they were listed, Raquel’s hoodies, which include the logo of Tom Sandoval, 40, and Tom Schwartz‘s Los Angeles restaurant, had a current bid of $8,100.

Also in the description of the items, Raquel said she would be donating 100 percent of the proceeds to the National Alliance on Mental Illness (NAMI), “a non-profit organization that offers educational programs and advocates for individuals and families affected by mental illness.”

Continuing on, Raquel, who began a months-long affair with Sandoval behind the back of her then-friend, Ariana Madix, 38, last summer, reminded fans that the three-tone topaz hoodie was the one she wore to BravoCon — and the same style as the one she “boldly” gave to Andy Cohen, 55, on Watch What Happens Live the night that their secret romance was exposed.

“I added the black hoodie to the listing since it is more worn and not in pristine condition. The rhinestone TomTom hoodie is designed by Eddie Valentin,” she noted, adding that she’ll sign the sweater upon request.

As for the necklace, which Raquel purchased in Pump Rules season 10 (amid her affair with Sandoval), that bid is up to $2,425.

“This solid 14K gold Lightning Bolt Necklace is designed by Caitlin Nicole jewelry and measures 18 inches. The original cost was $765 USD. There is a small scratch in the gold but not noticeable when the light hits,” Raquel explained.

Raquel also mentioned her sordid relationship with Sandoval, saying, “This necklace was symbolic of my devotion to another person who I allowed to have power over me. He no longer does.”

Meanwhile, in her Instagram post, Raquel, who spent months in a mental health treatment center earlier this year, further explained her decision to sell her hoodies and necklace.

“I am currently in the process of letting go, letting go of the things that no longer serve me anymore and as I’m cleaning out my closet I have found a few items that are a little bit triggering and I just don’t want to see them. I don’t want to have them in my possession. I will never wear them again,” she noted.

“It’s all about creating a better mindset, changing your environment so you can set yourself up for success. Yeah, I’m about that right now,” she went on. “One listing will be the TomTom hoodies and then the other listing will be the lightning bolt necklace that you all saw me purchase on camera. Cringe. And hopefully, there is some good that can come out of this. Let’s start the bidding.”

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