Raquel Leviss tearfully came clean about the Scandoval affair and admitted to more sex romps with Tom Sandoval and her desire to be in a ‘throuple’ with Ariana Madix on Wednesday’s third and final Vanderpump Rules reunion episode on Bravo.
The 28-year-old reality star sat down for a final interview six days after the season 10 reunion in which Ariana, 37, blasted her over her betrayal.
Ariana split with her longtime boyfriend Tom, 40, in March after learning of his months-long affair with Raquel.
‘I think it’s important to me to tell the truth,’ said Raquel as she admitted to lying during the reunion.
‘I think that I’ve been lying and being so deceitful this entire time that… I don’t want to lie anymore, and it’s all out there anyway. Like, the worst is out, yet I’m still finding myself having to lie about specific timeline things,’ Raquel said.

Flashbacks were then shown of Sandoval during the reunion insisting they had sex once and took a break before resuming their affair.
‘He feels like it would be less hurtful to say that, you know, this wasn’t going on for so long,’ Raquel said.
The producer prodded her for details and Raquel revealed the second time they had sex was during the Mexico trip for Scheana Shay’s wedding last August that Ariana also attended.
‘I was like, “We can’t see each other. This isn’t gonna be a thing.” But then, like, that first night in Cancún, he was, like drunk and, like, trying to find his room, and I heard him talking in the hallway, and, there was somebody working there, and he was, like, asking which direction the elevator was, and I was like, “Wait, just come inside.” I was like, “Sorry, sir. Like, he’s really drunk.” Yeah. That was the second time that we were physical, intimate with each other,’ Raquel admitted.
She shared that their affair ‘picked up speed’ once filming ended on the Bravo show.
Raquel also claimed that she ‘felt really guilty’.
‘A huge part of me wanted to tell her. Like, it ate me alive not to tell her. I mean, I even suggest, I was like, “Maybe, like, what would Ariana think about, like, having me as an addition?” And he was like, “No, no, no. She would not be into that”,’ Raquel said.
‘A throuple?,’ the producer asked.

Done lying: ‘I don’t want to lie anymore, and it’s all out there anyway. Like, the worst is out, yet I’m still finding myself having to lie about specific timeline things,’ Raquel said
‘Yeah,’ Raquel answered. ‘Because, like, I love Ariana as a person, and then also I’m in love with Tom Sandoval. So, yeah, it didn’t seem like that far-fetched of an idea, but it was not something in question,’ Raquel said.
‘God, he’s gonna kill me,’ she added.
‘I just hate lying so much. I hate it,’ Raquel said.
Raquel also told the producer that Sandoval asked her not to disclose certain information.
‘I feel like Tom is, like, you know, my one person that I do have. And so, if I just, like, went and betrayed him, then I’d really have nobody,’ Raquel said.
She started crying as she revealed they agreed to get their story straight.
‘The reason why Tom wanted to lie about it is because it’s a really bad look to hook up with someone’s boyfriend in their own house. When they’ve gone out of town, especially for, like, a funeral, of all things,’ Raquel said sobbing.
Ariana earlier unleashed her full fury on her ex-boyfriend Sandoval and former friend Raquel during the reunion that was filmed Avenue Six Studios in Los Angeles just weeks after the affair broke.
‘Diabolical, demented, sub-human,’ Ariana called Raquel after she admitted to being ‘super selfish’ for engaging in a months-long affair with Sandoval. ‘Selfish doesn’t cover it.’
The episode opened with Ariana in a fiery red revenge dress ignoring Raquel as she took the far seat next to Tom Schwartz, 40.
Throuple thoughts: ‘Yeah,’ Raquel said when asked if she considered being in a throuple with Tom and Ariana. ‘Because, like, I love Ariana as a person, and then also I’m in love with Tom Sandoval. So, yeah, it didn’t seem like that far-fetched of an idea, but it was not something in question’
She took the seat that was left vacant after Scheana Shay, 38, had to leave due to a restraining order that Raquel filed against her.
Ariana stared straight ahead with an emotionless expression as Raquel sat down.
Hi, Raquel,’ said host Andy.
‘Hi, Andy,’ Raquel responded as Sandoval dropped his head and looked down.
Raquel said she was ‘super embarrassed’ and knew that she owed a lot of people in the room an apology.
Raquel in an off-shoulder green dress joined the rest of the cast after watching the season 10 reunion from a trailer 100 yards away due to the terms of the restraining order.
James Kennedy, 31, who was formerly engaged to Raquel, and Lala Kent, 32, who was suspicious of their relationship sat opposite Raquel when she joined the cast.
Lisa Vanderpump, 62, also was among the cast who gathered for the reunion.
