Rachel “Raquel” Leviss claimed Ariana Madix and alternative contributors of the Vanderpump Laws solid had been within the find out about her affair with Tom Sandoval months sooner than the scoop poor within the lawsuit she filed towards the previous couple on Thursday.


As she accused Sandoval, 41, and Ariana, 38, of revenge porn, eavesdropping, and invasion of privateness, claiming Sandoval recorded movies “without her knowledge or consent” and that Ariana “distributed” or confirmed to others, Raquel, 29, mentioned her and Sandoval’s romance was once “well known” to many as she described herself as a “victim” and complained that her occupation was once ruined by means of “Scandoval.”

Within the paperwork acquired by means of Radar Online on February 29, Raquel mentioned that “although, purportedly secret, the affair,” which started “on or about August 10, 2022,” was once, actually, “well-known to many cast members and suspected by others” as she and Sandoval “were not particularly discrete.”

“(Raquel) is informed and believes, and on such information and belief alleges, that (Ariana) knew about it as early as the Fall of 2022,” she alleged. “In December of 2022, (Ariana) scolded (Raquel) and Sandoval for being handsy in public, admonishing them to save the story for season 11.”

In step with Raquel, Pump Laws was once “facing an uncertain future” amid season 10 because the display had “grown stale.” And Ariana, “in particular, was reportedly on the chopping block.”

“In the absence of a sticky new storyline, there is every reason to believe Vanderpump Rules would have been canceled,” her paperwork mentioned.

“(Ariana) was aware of these pressures as Sandoval, and both were heavily invested financially and reputationally in the show remaining on the air,” they persisted. “By extension, if their relationship was already on the rocks and if Sandoval was intent on brazenly carrying out an illicit affair with another cast member, they had every incentive to leverage these salacious threads into the storyline Vanderpump Rules so desperately needed.”

In any other portion of Raquel’s 19-page grievance, acquired by means of Page Sixthe Pump Laws alum was once described as a “victim” of Sandoval.

“Lost in the mix was that (Raquel) was a victim of the predatory and dishonest behavior of an older man, who recorded sexually explicit videos of her without her knowledge or consent, which were then distributed, disseminated and discussed publicly by a scorned woman seeking vengeance, catalyzing the scandal,” the grievance alleged.

It additionally mentioned that along with the NSFW video Ariana found out on Sandoval’s telephone, which sparked “Scandoval” in March 2023, Raquel believes that Sandoval could have “additional illicit videos and/or photographs” of her, and she or he is worried that those clips may well be “in the hands of someone who (hates) her guts and (is) out for blood.”

“(She’s) terrified (Ariana could) leak them,” the paperwork upload.

Because of her extremely publicized affair with Sandoval, the Pump Laws solid has “enjoyed unseen levels of public recognition and professional opportunity.” In the meantime, Raquel, “who was humiliated and villainized for public consumption, remains a shell of her former self, with career prospects stunted and her reputation in tatters.”

Following the submitting of Raquel’s lawsuit, her legal professional, Bryan Freedmanwho could also be representing Brandi Glanville51, in her sexual harassment claims towards Andy Cohen55, excused a commentary.

“The idea that human beings are expected to sacrifice their mental and emotional health in service of Bravo’s ratings is obscene. Many of their employees are suffering in silence due to brazen and calculated actions by NBC and Bravo,” he mentioned. “Hundreds of reality TV participants have reached out to Mark Geragos and myself, and we are committed to ensuring that they have zealous advocates to confront the damage these employers have wreaked on their lives. While coming forward can be terrifying and even embarrassing, I implore people not to suffer in silence.”

Bryan’s spouse, Mark Geragosafter added, “This lawsuit is squarely about illegal behavior and those who traffic in it and enable it. Rachel has apologized for her part in an affair. That’s not a crime. Tom and Ariana are alleged here to have engaged in criminal acts. They then doubled down and used those actions to shame, bully, belittle, and intentionally try to destroy Rachel’s mental health.

The law makes it clear that recording someone without their consent and distributing that illegal recording is punishable by law; however, doing so while knowingly enticing them to engage in sexual acts deserves the harshest of penalties allowable under the law.”
