Pics! Raquel Leviss Lands in L.A. Before In-Person ‘Vanderpump Rules’ Reunion Appearance
Raquel Leviss is ready to face the music and her castmates after her affair with Tom Sandoval aka “Scandoval” was revealed!
On Wednesday, she confirmed that she’ll be making an in-person appearance at the “Vanderpump Rules” Season 10 reunion.
She wrote on her Instagram Story, “Yes, I will be attending the reunion tomorrow in person.”
On the same day, Leviss was also photographed arriving at LAX airport ahead of the reunion.
When a photographer asked if there would be any reconciliation in the future, she just nodded yes.
Later in the day, Raquel was more chatty when photogs spotted her outside of Blush Nail Bar in Valley Village, California in video obtained by TMZ.
When asked how she was doing, Leviss answered that she was "hanging in there."
As for how she felt about the reunion, Raquel said, "I know I have to take accountability for my actions. I'm completely prepared to do that."
Raquel also explained how the affair happened, saying, "It started out as a friendship and turned into something more. I'm sure we'll go into detail about all of that tomorrow."
Leviss shut down rumors that her kiss with Tom Schwartz was a cover-up for her affair with Sandoval. She said, "No, that's not true. I genuinely had an interest in Tom Schwartz."
Raquel admitted that she didn't know where her relationship with Sandoval stands. She commented, "We're just trying to get through these next few steps and make amends... we're not putting a label on anything."
While it's been "a lot," Raquel acknowledged that there were "consequences to my actions."
Raquel currently has a temporary restraining order against Scheana Shay, who she claimed punched her in the face. Scheana has denied the allegations.
Despite the TRO, it looks like Scheana is also planning on attending the reunion. On Scheana’s podcast, she said, “As far as I know, I'm fully intending on being there in person."
Shay also took to her Instagram Story to show her "pre-reunion coffee" with Lala Kent and Ariana Madix.
We’ll have to wait and see how the TRO will affect the reunion!
Andy Cohen hasn’t spilled too much about the reunion episode, but recently teased on his SiriusXM show, “We’re going to deliver and it’s going to be great.”
We’re expecting that it’ll be a warzone at the reunion due to Scandoval.
Raquel and Tom have both apologized to his ex, Ariana, who he was dating until news broke about the affair.

Leviss wrote on Instagram, “I want to apologize for my actions and my choices foremost to Ariana, and to my friends and the fans so invested in our relationships. There is no excuse, I am not a victim and I must own my actions and I deeply regret hurting Ariana."
Sandoval wrote, “I want to first and foremost apologize to everyone I’ve hurt through this process. Most of all, I want to apologize to Ariana. I made mistakes, I was selfish, and made reckless decisions that hurt somebody I love. No one deserves to feel that pain so traumatically and publicly.”
Earlier this week, a dramatic teaser was released for what’s to come on “Vanderpump Rules.”
In the trailer, Tom and Ariana sat down for an emotional conversation after their split.
At one point, Ariana told Tom that she wanted him “to die” after he asked if she wanted anything from the kitchen.
The trailer also gave a glimpse into the problems that Tom and Ariana were having in their relationship.
Tom complained about “having sex, like, four times a year,” to which Ariana responded, “I cannot have sex with somebody who feels like a stranger.”
Tom and Ariana were together for nine years before they called it quits.
A few days ago, Ariana was approached by photographers, who asked if she’s spoken to Raquel. She answered, “I don’t know who you’re talking about.”
