Vanderpump Rules Scandal: Raquel Leviss and Tom Sandoval Speak Out on Cheating Affair

Speaking to Entertainment Tonight, Leviss expressed her regret at her actions and apologized to Madix, her friends, and fans for her behavior. She revealed that she is seeking counseling to address her patterns of codependency and addiction to being loved, taking steps to understand her behavior and make healthier choices.

Leviss also highlighted the negative impact that the scandal has had on her life, with physical assault, lost friendships, and hate messages. She has taken steps to protect her mental health by seeking counseling to end her unhealthy behavioral cycle and learn to set stronger emotional boundaries. Leviss added that she is not seeking forgiveness but instead focusing on her own well-being as she strives to become a better person.

Sandoval has also issued an apology, this time to Madix directly, admitting that he had been selfish and made reckless decisions that hurt someone he loves. He acknowledged the pain he had caused and expressed his regret that their relationship had ended so severely tarnished. The apology followed Madix’s discovery of an NSFW video of Leviss on Sandoval’s phone last week. The situation, which has been dubbed Sandoval, has left many fans in shock, and Sandoval and Leviss may still face the consequences from Bravo, the network behind Vanderpump Rules.

Meanwhile, former Vanderpump Rules star Stassi Schroeder has weighed in on the scandal, stating her support for Madix and her disappointment in Sandoval. Schroeder, who has her own podcast, Straight Up With Stassi, called Sandoval’s infidelity “shocking” and criticized his attempts to paint himself as the good guy over the past ten years. She also expressed her sympathy for Madix and her anger at Sandoval for his actions.
