On Wednesday’s episode of “Vanderpump Rules,” Tom Sandoval denied strongly that he had ever touched Raquel Leviss while they were dating for months. A reporter asked the pub owner during his confession, “Has anything physical ever happened between you and Raquel?” “Nothing has happened between Raquel and me,” Sandoval said, fixing his face a little.
“Like, there’s nothing that wouldn’t happen between, you know, me and Katie [Maloney].” Sandoval’s answer came after many of his friends asked him why he was alone at The Abbey with Leviss, who was 28 years old.

Ally Lewber, who was dating James Kennedy at the time, was the first to spot the “weird” interaction. She told Maloney about it, and Maloney then asked Sandoval about it. “It’s annoying Katie would say something like that,” Sandoval, 40, said again. “Not only is it rude to me, but it’s also rude to Ariana.” He said that he didn’t “dance all close” with Leviss in a “dark corner” of the pub.
Instead, he said that “a bunch of us” went there, and Raquel and he were two of those people. Sandoval, who had at least one “magnetic” kiss with Leviss at the time, thought the charges were “funny” when a worried Scheana Shay told him Maloney said, “Raquel’s now going after Sandoval.”
“Where the f—k is the Abbey?” We know all of the people there. “I wouldn’t go there for a secret f-king rendezvous,” he said at the time. Maloney later clarified what she meant when she said Madix, 37, and Sandoval were in a “open relationship,” saying that she meant they “don’t have rules for each other in their relationship.”
“I guess what I’m trying to say is that if Tom and Ariana have an open relationship, Ariana doesn’t know about it,” Maloney admitted, adding that Sandoval is “very manipulative.” Even though Sandoval denied it over and over, Maloney, 36, and Lewber’s observations were proven to be true.
On March 1, Madix found out that her boyfriend of almost ten years was cheating on her with one of her best friends, so she broke up with him.
Scandoval’s effects have continued to show up on and off-screen, and the “nuclear” Season 10 reunion, which was filmed on March 23, was the last big event. “Let me tell you something—I didn’t leave with any bruises, but I was called into action,” Page Six host Andy Cohen had joked before. “Vanderpump Rules” airs every Wednesday at 9 p.m. ET on Bravo.
