As BravoCon kicked off on Friday, with much of the cast in attendance, the new season was teased, with James Kennedy, 31, literally drawing a line in the sand, Katie Maloney, 36, warning Scheana Shay, 38, about her potential friendship with Sandoval, 38, and Ariana accusing him of ruining her life and home, as sources confirmed if Rachel “Raquel” Leviss, 28, was invited.
On November 3, just about eight months after she was caught having an affair with Sandoval behind the back of her then-friend and castmate, Ariana, TMZ revealed Raquel was not asked to attend BravoCon.
The outlet also noted that Raquel, who is currently living in Arizona, is still not in contact with her former co-stars, the majority of whom berated her earlier this year at the Pump Rules season 10 reunion.
With Raquel hundreds of miles away, Bravo debuted the trailer for Pump Rules, which began with a message that read, “What a difference one scandal makes,” and encouraged fans to “get pumped to pick up the pieces” of Scandoval.
The sneak peek then moves to Santa Monica Beach, where the cast is attempting to enjoy a day in the sun — as a group.
“That’s Ariana’s side. Sandoval’s side over here. Don’t go over the line!” James proclaims.
As the cast tries to coexist amid the falling out between Ariana and Sandoval, Lisa Vanderpump seems to be doing her best to convince the group to offer Sandoval forgiveness.
“To lose his best friend, his business is up the creek, everything has gone wrong in his life,” she explains, giving a nod to Tom Schwartz, 40, and their bar, Schwartz & Sandy’s, which took a hit after Sandoval and Raquel’s affair was exposed.
Meanwhile, Katie wants no such reunion between Sandoval and Scheana, whom she offers a stern warning.
“Scheana, if you’re gonna be friends with him, she’s gonna f*cking cut you off so think about your next move very carefully,” she states.
As for Ariana and Sandoval, they are seen in a scene together, during which she tells him, “[You] ruin my life, my home, and then attempt to kill my f*cking dog. My lawyer will be dealing with you!”
