Katie Maloney wants Tom Sandoval and Raquel Leviss to give romance ‘a shot’

Katie Maloney is rooting for Raquel Leviss and Tom Sandoval to give their romance a go.

During her Wednesday “Watch What Happens Live With Andy Cohen” appearanceMaloney explained her surprising support for the embattled “Vanderpump Rules” stars’ future.

“I still think maybe they should give it a shot because they’ve blown up their lives,” the 36-year-old said. “May as well.”

Maloney clarified that she doesn’t “know what they’re doing” relationship-wise at this time.

Andy Cohen noted that Maloney said something similar about the duo back in March, the same month their affair came to light.

“At this point, they better fall in love because who’s going to date them?” Maloney joked on “WWHL” at the time.

Sandoval was in a nine-year relationship with Ariana Madix when news broke of his months-long dalliance with the former pageant queen.

She said in March that no one else will want to date them.

The Bravo show had already wrapped Season 10 by that time, but the cast members resumed filming to capture the fallout of the cheating scandal.

While those scenes have yet to air, hints of Leviss and Sandoval’s betrayal played out on Wednesday’s episode.

“I feel like in a relationship you should want to, like, have sex,” Leviss, 28, said in a lengthy conversation with her then-friend.

Although Madix has yet to discuss the affair — besides a March 16 Instagram statement — she is scheduled to appear on “WWHL” next week.

The actress also had a chance to confront Sandoval and Leviss during the March 23 reunion taping while wearing a red “revenge dress.”
