Ariana Madix says Raquel Leviss is ‘not a whore’ in pre-Scandoval scene

Ariana Madix defended Raquel Leviss’ while she was secretly having an affair with the actress’ longtime boyfriend, Tom Sandoval.

In a new preview of “Vanderpump Rules” — which was filmed before Scandoval surfaced — the “Dead Want Women” actress stuck up for her co-star against Katie Maloney calling Leviss a “whore” after she made out with Maloney’s ex-husband, Tom Schwartz, against her wishes.

“Are you guys not friends anymore because of him and Raquel making out?” Sandoval asked Maloney in the clip obtained by E! News.

“I don’t think it was really like a big deal,” the embattled reality star continued. “They were just two single people that are decent looking in like Mexico that just decided to make out.”

However, Maloney hit back, “We’ve had 900 conversations about it and he’s told me a hundred times, ‘I’m not interested in her, Nothing’s ever gonna happen.’ It’s too close to home.”

The TV personality, who split from Schwartz last March, said she now has to deal with the “aftermath” of her ex’s kiss with Leviss.

When Sandoval, 40, expressed confusion, Madix, 37, chimed in, “Well, they’re not friends anymore, so there’s an aftermath and now it’s going to make it really difficult for her and Raquel to be friends.”

Maloney, 36, continued slamming Leviss, 28, calling her “a f–king whore.”

“She’s not a f–king whore,” Sandoval responded, while Madix agreed, “She’s not a whore. She does not get paid by anyone to do anything.”

Maloney replied, “Well, then she should because she’s acting like one.”

Little did Madix know, Sandoval and Leviss had already begun their months-long affair, which only came to light when Madix accidentally discovered a sexually explicit video of Leviss on his phone on March 1.

The “Buying Back My Daughter” actress wasted no time dumping her boyfriend of nearly a decade upon discovering the news.

An insider told Page Six last month that the lovers’ dalliance began in the summer of 2022 and that Leviss “has slept over Tom and Ariana’s house when Ariana’s been out of town.”

However, Sandoval and Leviss are apparently on a break — despite being spotted together on multiple occasions.
