I’d love to start out this off by saying Kristen Doute has entered the chat. However the Vanderpump Rules alum virtually began the chat when Scandoval broke. Kristen was the first to post a pic with Ariana Madix after she discovered about boyfriend Tom Sandoval’s shocking infidelity with Raquel Leviss.
People reported that Kristen had some ideas to share about Raquel and the VPR group. She appeared on an “emergency” episode of Scheana Shay’s Scheananigans podcast. Stated Kristen of Raquel, “I’ve at all times thought that she and James [Kennedy] are on the identical precise degree of being an opportunist.”
She added, “I needed to remind myself that she was a fan of the present earlier than she was on the present. And never that that makes everybody that approach, however like, she didn’t organically actually slot in with the group ever, in any respect.”
Kristen, who had long-term relationships with each Sandy and James, solely just lately determined to simply accept Raquel. “I selected — what was it, possibly a 12 months in the past — to cease hating Raquel or, like, hating on her,” Kristen famous.
The creator and podcast host stated that her first actual dialog with Raquel was throughout Lala Kent’s first party for daughter Ocean Kent Emmett. Kristen recalled, “That day at Ocean’s party was like essentially the most clever and well-spoken and put-together I had ever heard her be, with out sort of barely blinking her eyes and simply opening her mouth.”
Kristen went on to muse, “Similar to these bizarre, dumb stares the place I’m like, Why are you simply me like that? Like, What? Is your mind catching up? Like, I’m confused.” Lol. I feel we have been all confused by Raquel at one level.
Lala, who was additionally current for the episode, questioned if Raquel “had an precise dialog with anyone with out quick circuiting?” My guess might be not. Then once more, I suppose Raquel stopped quick circuiting sufficient to enamor Sandy for the last 7 months.
Whereas the information of Sandy’s betrayal continues to be contemporary, Andy Cohen instantly deployed cameras to catch the drama. The affair can be featured within the present season of VPR, which is airing now. Moreover, the VPR reunion is scheduled to film in simply two quick weeks.
Apart from the unprecedented rigidity, there’s additionally only one teeny tiny drawback with the much-anticipated reunion. Raquel’s order of protection against Scheana after accusing her of a “bodily assault.” Scheana allegedly hit Raquel as soon as she found out about the news. The incident allegedly occurred proper after showing together with her on an episode of Watch What Happens Live.
Raquel produced photos of her eye. One image featured a bandage on it and the others present a small gash on her eyebrow space. Scheana has vehemently denied she hit Raquel, saying that her claims are “a fabrication.”
However Lala thinks further security measures can be taken. “Safety will certainly be amped up on the reunion,” she famous.
Scheana quipped, “We have to have cages. Everybody wants their very own private bodyguards.” However the VPR OG solid member in all probability wasn’t laughing the subsequent day. Raquel filed the order simply in the future after Scheana recorded the podcast.
Raquel, a former magnificence queen, is now generally known as one of many biggest VPR villains of all time. In a solid stuffed with villains. In order that’s saying so much.
Shortly after Scandoval broke, Raquel advised Individuals, “Apart from the indefensible circumstances surrounding our relationship, my feelings for Tom have at all times been honest and born out of a loving friendship. Realizing how many individuals we harm, I want to know my selections and be taught to make higher ones.” A press release she additionally echoed in a post on her Instagram account.
Apart from being public enemy primary, Raquel continues to be attempting to maintain a sexually explicit video underneath wraps. It’s the identical video that Ariana allegedly discovered that uncovered the entire affair.
In an effort to maintain it personal, Raquel despatched authorized notices to her castmates, together with Ariana and Sandy, with a warning not to share the video. A supply advised Individuals that Ariana allegedly screen-recorded the video and despatched it to herself. Her reasoning for doing so is unclear, however her have to have proof isn’t precisely shocking.
The discover, despatched by Raquel’s lawyer, claimed that the video was recorded “illegally” and “with out the permission” of Raquel. Her counsel additionally suggested anybody who has the recording to delete it from any “methodology during which the recording might exist.”
Understandably, nobody on the podcast addressed whether or not or not that they had seen or have been in possession of the video.
