The original heat from #Scandoval has cooled down and the Vanderpump Rules fandom, as a whole, is doing a lot of reflecting. We’re wondering how we all missed the red flags that Tom Sandoval was cheating on Ariana Madix for months with Raquel Leviss. Raquel and Tom fooled us all with their sneaky affair until it exploded in their faces. Now, everything in recent VPR history is being viewed under a microscope.
One puzzling element about all the latest Pump Rules drama is Sandoval’s most recent Halloween costume. He had the audacity to go as Raquel for Halloween while he was sleeping with her behind Ariana’s back. The absolute mental gymnastics I’m doing to try and rationalize this. The costume seemed like Sandoval and Raquel were harmlessly poking at Katie Maloney calling Raquel a fangirl. All we knew at the time was that Raquel and Tom Schwartz had something going on and Katie wasn’t happy about it. Little did we know how desperate of a TomTom fangirl Raquel really was at the time. What a whirlwind.
Now, we know that Sandoval’s Halloween costume had a sinister side. Even so, after the #Scandoval affair became public, Raquel still has the cheeky Halloween costume highlighted on her Instagram Stories. According to Page Six, the reel includes several photos and videos from the night, and almost all of them include Sandoval in one way or another. He’s the star of the highlight and now it just makes me sick to see. It’s even worse that deleting this dirty detail of her past wasn’t a part of Rachel’s PR strategy. The Bambi-Eyed B-word might not be so savvy after all.
It’s just gross to think that not only did Ariana have to live through the deception, but now, Raquel still proudly portrays it on her Instagram. Maybe she and Sandoval really are planning on convincing the VPR universe they’re “in love” or whatever. I’m not buying it. If that’s their strategy, they can take Schwartz with them and the three can live happily ever after on their own island of misery. All I know is that Lala Kent and Scheana Shay better add the Halloween costume to the list of receipts they bring up at the reunion. That is if Scheana is even allowed to address Raquel and Tom directly at all. VPR Season 10, it’s a ride like no other, folks.
TELL US – ARE YOU SURPRISED THAT RAQUEL DIDN’T DELETE THE HALLOWEEN HIGHLIGHT OFF OF HER INSTAGRAM PAGE? WHY DO YOU THINK SHE STILL HAS THE HIGHLIGHT OF TOM ON HER PAGE?
