Tom Sandoval Wants To ‘Make It Work’ With Raquel Leviss Amid Cheating Scandal! But…
Tom Sandoval isn’t done with his relationship with Raquel Leviss…
Early Tuesday we heard from the TomTom co-owner he thinks he could’ve handled his affair with the 28-year-old “way better” (obviously!). In a video obtained by PageSix, the 39-year-old said to a paparazzo:
“Hindsight’s always 20/20, man. It’s like when you look back at a situation, you think of all the things [you] should’ve, would’ve, could’ve done to make it better … Yes, I could’ve handled things way better. Of course.”
Very carefully avoided the words “regret” or “sorry” there, didn’t he? If only he thought of handling the situation better before he cheated on his girlfriend…
But his hesitation made us wonder if he was dancing around calling the affair a “regret” — because he didn’t want to say he regretted what was happening with Raquel!

He’s apparently still hoping to “make it work” with the SUR waitress, despite all the drama! Last week he and ex Ariana Madix met up, along with the rest of the Vanderpump Rules cast, to film a Season 10 reunion. He and his new lady reportedly took a lot of heat from other cast members! Lala Kent and James Kennedy went particularly hard against the couple for their cheating scandal. It couldn’t have been easy for Tom and Raquel as a duo to take such a beating — we’d worry as long as they’re together they’re going to be treated like they’re doing something wrong. But that’s not where their heads are at! Or their hearts, we suppose.
According to the outlet on Tuesday, though, an insider is claiming Tom is ready to fight for his scandalous relationship. And apparently he’s “very emotional” about the ass-kicking he got from his VPR castmates:
“Tom has been very emotional after the [Vanderpump Rules] reunion. He wants to make it work with Raquel. But he knows the odds are stacked against them as a couple.”
However, the Bravolebrities aren’t even official as it stands right now!
“[Tom & Raquel] are friends, but not putting a label on anything at the moment.”
They can’t even commit to one another right now? Wow.
So much effort to put into an affair that ruined a decade-long relationship — and to not even make things official? They’re definitely still dating and enjoying their time together, but they may not even be on the same page with how serious their relationship is. Everything seems to be up in the air at the moment, and with how the Scandoval is putting pressure on them both, it could seriously blow up in their faces.
What do U think, Perezcious readers? Will Tom and Raquel work things out or are they doomed from all the backlash? Let us know in the comments (below)!
