Rachel “Raquel” Leviss made some bold claims against former boss Lisa Vanderpump during the latest episode of her podcast.

After Lisa, 63, was seen expressing concern for Tom Sandoval, 41, on the latest episode of Vanderpump Rules, Raquel, 29, wondered why the Real Housewives of Beverly Hills alum didn’t have the same worry for her while also reflecting on what she told Nema Vand about Sandoval and Ariana Madix‘s supposed “open relationship” and explaining why she “ghosted” Sandoval.

“I feel like it’s pretty typical for Lisa to really like, take the men under her wing and make sure that the men are okay, but she doesn’t really care about the women on the show as much,” Raquel stated on the February 19 episode of Rachel Goes Rogue. “To me, my perception of it, it seems like the women are more disposable to her, and she has invested in the TomTom name and has business with Sandoval.”

“If you were really concerned about Tom having dark thoughts, you had to have considered my mental state of mind as well because we were both going through the same thing at the same time,” she continued.

According to Raquel, Lisa did not reach out to her to see how she was doing as she underwent a months-long treatment program post-“Scandoval.”

“She didn’t. And she didn’t care what my mental state was when she pulled that whole Graham situation on me,” Raquel added, signaling to Lisa’s gifting of Graham to her ex, James Kennedy, 32.

Raquel was then asked about her past comments regarding her date with Nema, and what he said about her claims of an “open relationship” between Sandoval and Ariana, 38.

“I didn’t think that I said anything bad, but [Sandoval] was like, ‘I’m a business professional and people are looking at me and when they hear things like this, it looks bad on me.’ So he was scolding me for opening up about that dating situation and how it went down,” Raquel recalled.

As for where the comment about an “open relationship” came from, Raquel said she spoke of the idea to Nema after spending a weekend at Coachella with Sandoval and Ariana prior to their split.

“I did not tell Nema that Tom told me that he was in an open relationship. What I told Nema when I was explaining to him my experience at Coachella staying with Tom and Ariana and a few of our friends in that Airbnb, Tom and I and Jesse, were in the jacuzzi, our feet were in the jacuzzi and we were talking until 5 a.m. The sun was coming up, and we were listening to Dua Lipa and talking about relationships and whatnot, and nothing happened that weekend. But also like Tom and Ariana were extra lovey towards me, and so when I told Nema this experience, what I said was, ‘Tom and Ariana give off an open relationship vibe,'” Raquel revealed. “And he was like, ‘Oh, that’s interesting. Do you think they’re in an open relationship?’ And I was like, ‘No, I don’t think that they are, but it’s, it was a weird energy.’ And he said, do you think Tom is interested in you like that and I was like, ‘Yeah, it felt like he was.’ And then he said, ‘Would you act on that?’ And I said, ‘No, I would be more likely to hook up with Ariana than I would with Tom.'”

“He took it as I was saying that Tom told me that he and Ariana were in an open relationship and that was not the case,” Raquel clarified.

Moving on to the end of her relationship with Sandoval, which happened amid her treatment, Raquel admitted to feeling “a little bit” like she abandoned him.

“I do but, you know, I’d been advised that that would be the best way for me to end it because if I tried to explain the reasons why I’m breaking up with him, he would figure out a way to get back into my good graces,” she shared, noting that she attempted to call it quits with Sandoval before he joined FOX’s Special Forces.

“I said like, ‘I don’t want to do this anymore. This isn’t healthy for me,’ and he was like, ‘Please don’t do this to me. Please don’t do this to me.’ And then he started talking about how Kyle Chan had to come over and remove the guns from his house, and I was like, ‘Oh my God. Like, please don’t choose a permanent solution to a temporary problem,'” she revealed. “I’m talking him off the ledge and so you know, like after he did that, it was like, ‘Well, I don’t you know, he’s going to pull something to keep me in his grasp.’ So … I just had to ghost him.”
