Tom Sandoval & Raquel Leviss Are ‘Moving Forward’ Together Amid Scandoval Fallout!
Tom Sandoval and Raquel Leviss are ready to move on from Scandoval… possibly together?!
Amid the scandal of their months-long affair, one of the biggest questions surrounding the controversial Vanderpump Rules stars has been: Are they going to continue their romance following the 39-year-old’s breakup with Ariana Madix? So far, they seem to be still going out and spending time together. However, multiple sources – and even Raquel – have noted they have put no “label” on their relationship for now. Meanwhile, a Page Six insider said Sandoval “wants to make it work” with the former pageant queen. All of this drama and these two aren’t even on the same page about what they want? That doesn’t bode well for them as a couple…

Now, some more insight into the television personalities’ futures together has been revealed. Although the two are “still not putting a label on things between them” right now, a source for People on Tuesday shared that Raquel and Sandoval are figuring out what this next “chapter” in their lives looks like after Scandoval. Despite what some Bravo fans think, the insider insisted they connected emotionally before it became “physical”:
“[They] are both taking time to adjust to where things are now before making any decisions about their futures. They care about one another. Their relationship was emotional way before it was physical. This is a new chapter. They need to figure out what they want that to look like.”
Hmm. Basically, things are still up in the air when it comes to their relationship, but this could also just be a PR way of keeping things on the DL before they make it official.
Obvi Raquel and Sandoval’s romance is very complicated as they are dealing with the public backlash and the anger from their Vanderpump Rules castmates for having a full-on affair behind Ariana’s back. Things even got “really confrontational” during the season 10 reunion taping last week, with reports revealing that Lala Kent and Raquel’s ex-fiance James Kennedy went off on the two. And based on everyone’s reaction to the affair, we would not be shock if they’re very hesitant to carry on with their relationship.
However, it doesn’t sound like they are quite ready to close the door on it yet. The People insider they are focused on “moving forward” since they “can’t change” the fact that they started a relationship before Sandoval ended things with Ariana:
“The reunion was tough, but they didn’t expect it wouldn’t be. They’ve both clearly stated they regret the circumstances around what happened — and apologized sincerely for the hurt they caused — but at the end of the day, they can’t change anything about how things were handled. Now is all about moving forward.”
It’ll be inneresting to see if these two decide to make their relationship official, but we can bet their VPR co-stars won’t be happy about it! Of course, at this point, what else do they have to lose? What do YOU think, Perezcious readers? Will Sandoval and Raquel become an official couple, or do you think their relationship is over after Scandoval? Sound OFF in the comments below.
