Are Tom Sandoval and Raquel Leviss still seeing each other now that their affair has been exposed?

#Scandoval rocked the internet, Bravo fans and the world on Friday, March 3. (Here's the Vanderpump Rules drama explained, if you need a little refresher.) But are the disgraced reality TV figures still able to carry on a romance now that everyone has turned against them and unapologetically declared #TeamAriana? 

Are Tom Sandoval and Raquel Leviss from 'Vanderpump Rules' still seeing each other?

In an exclusive with People (opens in new tab), Leviss gave us insight about where she stands with Sandoval.

"I care for Tom and I don't want to label anything or predict what lies ahead. Right now I need to heal," she said. 

She added, "Besides the indefensible circumstances surrounding our relationship, my feelings for Tom have always been sincere and born out of a loving friendship. Knowing how many people we hurt, I need to understand my choices and learn to make better ones." 

At press time, Sandoval has not addressed their status, but if you asked Bravo's Andy Cohen, the TV exec suspects that the two aren't over quite just yet. 

"It is my understanding that they are still [seeing each other]," he said during an episode of Andy Cohen Live on SiriusXM (opens in new tab) on March 6. "But I can’t say that as fact—that’s what I’ve gathered from my intelligence."

And it certainly didn't help that photos surfaced of Sandoval venturing over to Leviss' apartment late at night on Saturday, March 4, after the news went public a day prior. Yes, the Pump Rules camera crew rushed to get everything filmed over the weekend as the drama unfolded, but what would Sandoval be doing at his costar's house so late in the evening? You'd think he'd want to avoid being seen with her, as his friends and co-stars have rallied to support his now ex, Ariana Madix.

That Tom Sandoval and Raquel video, plus other clues

Now that the infidelity news is out in the open, eagle-eyed fans are piecing together clues signaling Sandoval and Leviss' affair. For one, the two were spotted with very similar lightning bolt necklaces, which some say was a subtle hint at their explicit romance. 

A few past videos have also resurfaced: one of Tom singling out Raquel while performing with his band (below), which seems innocent enough. But Reddit users got ahold of another video of Leviss (opens in new tab) on Sandoval's shoulders at the 2022 Life Is Beautiful Festival, which seemed a little too friendly for some people's liking. 

However, what really seemed to send everyone into a panic was a resurfaced interview with E! News (opens in new tab) when Leviss described her budding friendship with both Madix and Sandoval. 

"I've gotten really close with Scheana [Shay] and Ariana and Tom Sandoval as well," Raquel told E! News. "I feel like he's become one of my best friends lately."

Normally we wouldn't bat an eyelash, but then Raquel made this reveal: "He just is so in touch with himself and is fully accepting of who he is and is so confident. I don't know. I feel like he looks at me like a little sister and he's supporting me in a very kind way. He's a really great guy."

*Face palms*

And lastly, the explicit video Leviss sent to Sandoval, which ultimately was what exposed their affair, was allegedly filmed without her consent. A legal letter has been sent to Leviss' Pump Rules castmates stating that there would be legal action for posting or sharing the video. According to The New York Post (opens in new tab), Leviss’ lawyers cited a California law against revenge porn. Additionally, Leviss alleged that she was physically assaulted by co-star Scheana Shay, which fans are debating on the Twittersphere, and issued a restraining order against her.

The reunion is set to film in a few weeks, and it appears everyone will be there.

"They’re coming. I believe they’ll be there, yes I do,” Cohen said on his podcast. "This is a reunion that’s going to be…I’m girding my loins."

(Here's when Vanderpump Rules season 10 filmed so you have the timeframe in place.)

Catch Vanderpump Rules on Bravo on Wednesdays at 9pm ET and next-day on Peacock.
