The cast of “Vanderpump Rules” wants Raquel Leviss to “go away” amid the fallout from her affair with Tom Sandoval.
Shortly after Leviss released a second statement in which she said her and Sandoval’s inappropriate romance was “born out of a loving friendship,” a source close to the situation told Page Six exclusively that the group isn’t buying what she’s selling.
“Right now Raquel needs to atone and go away, so that those she has hurt and betrayed can be given the space and time to heal,” the insider shared.
“If she was truly remorseful, she would stop making public statements multiple times a day, sending frivolous legal letters to her castmates, accept that she wouldn’t be in this situation if she hadn’t pursued a relationship with her best friend’s partner, and end this bizarre PR spectacle.”
However, a source previously told Page Six that the video has not been circulated among the cast and claimed that no one has seen it other than Leviss, Sandoval and Madix.
Our source also blasted Leviss, 28, for making herself out to be the “victim” in the situation when the hurt one is Ariana Madix, Sandoval’s now-ex-girlfriend.
“Raquel is not a victim; she just plays one on TV,” the insider said.
A second source added that “no one” from “Vanderpump Rules” is talking to Leviss amid the fallout.
Leviss said in her statement Wednesday that although she cares for Sandoval, 39, she needed to take time to “heal,” which apparently means ghosting her secret beau. As Page Six exclusively revealed Wednesday, Leviss has been hiding out with family.
“Tom has been unable to track Raquel down for several days,” one insider told us. “He’s been asking mutual acquaintances if they’ve heard from her at all, but has had no luck. He can’t get in touch with her.”
Dressed in an all-black outfit and a black cap, Leviss attempted to go incognito while smoking her vape; however, her purported black eye — allegedly given to her by Scheana Shay that prompted a restraining order — appeared visible when photographed yesterday.
Meanwhile, the alleged cut to Leviss’ eyebrow, documented in her filing against Shay, 37, did not appear to be visible during her afternoon outing.
