Add another bit of insanity to all that Scandoval drama: is Raquel from Vanderpump Rules pregnant?!
That tumultuous Vanderpump Rules finale on May 17 was truly the Super Bowl of Bravo TV, and it left us with many questions: What's going on with Vanderpump Rules season 11? Where is Raquel Leviss now? Are Tom and Raquel still together? And exactly how will the three-part Vanderpump Rules reunion—which airs on Wednesday, May 24—possibly ramp this melodramatic mess up even further?
And now it looks like there's even more drama plaguing the Pump Rules personalities, with pregnancy rumors swirling around Raquel and Tom. Here's what we know.
Is Raquel from 'Vanderpump Rules' pregnant?
Alas, we don't have official confirmation either way about whether Raquel Leviss is currently pregnant, with Tom Sandoval's baby or otherwise. The baby rumors started cropping up after the Vanderpump Rules season 10 finale episode aired in mid-May after a post-season interview with producers about contract negotiations sparked up some speculation.
When discussing future filming of the Bravo show, executive producer Alex Baskin told Variety: “I had thought that we needed cameras on them right away. And I now think we need a minute.”
The reason for that delay? Apparently, a bombshell that dropped in a one-on-one during the reunion special. “The reunion is not just a recap of what you know, and it’s not just an intense version of the emotions,” he told the outlet. “There is new information.”
“I will put it this way: There are revelations, and they are revelations that not all of them know now. So we need a little space," Baskin added.
Many Pump fans have taken that revelation to mean a baby might potentially be on the way for Raquel. For one, it would have to involve either her, Tom or Ariana specifically, as there were only three one-on-one discussions filmed between host Andy Cohen and the cast during the reunion special: "I did separate one-on-ones with Tom, Ariana, and Raquel so that I could get all of their stories just in conversation with me," Cohen revealed on his “Radio Andy” SiriusXM show.
There's also the fact that Raquel has been out of public sight since the season culminated. The reality star was reportedly seeking mental health treatment at an Arizona facility amid the ongoing Scandoval drama. The gossip mill, however, seems to believe that Leviss is actually pregnant and hiding at her grandmother's house in Tucson, with the TikTok user @thebravomom claiming that she heard intel from Leviss' sister confirming the pregnancy.
Again, there's no word either way from any of the potential parties involved, but Baskin said of Leviss' future on the show: “We have had those conversations with her reps...she and people around her have to feel OK about it. And so that’s why I also think that waiting a little bit helps.”
Fans react to those Raquel Leviss pregnancy rumors
Wait would people actually be that surprised if Raquel was pregnant? After everything we’ve been through I feel like that would be the least surprising ending to Scandoval…. #PumpRules pic.twitter.com/Z9IobvpylfMay 19, 2023
Raquel was outside the reunion vaping. Unless she is literally Satan’s daughter, she wouldn’t be doing that newly pregnant. That can’t be the reveal.May 20, 2023
Okay, what if Rachel/Raquel is not pregnant? WHAT IF Tom fathered a child with a different woman?!?!? Someone who is not Raquel or Ariana, but it's in that timeline?!??!?!! Is it too Days of Our Lives/General Hospital??? Idk...... The man was having a midlife crisis 👀👀May 20, 2023
My brain can’t even process Raquel possibly being pregnant so I’m choosing to ignore this rumor #PumpRules pic.twitter.com/yU1HroLT4KMay 20, 2023
