No rest for the weary: Vanderpump Rules season 11 has just started filming, and we all have the same question: "Where is Raquel Leviss now?"
Clearly unfazed by chaos, the hard-working production crew has resumed its duties to pick up the pieces post-Scandoval. However, we suspect it's a bit of a challenge considering one of the key players, a.k.a. Raquel, is M.I.A. The former pageant queen had checked into a rehab facility following the disastrous Vanderpump Rules reunion but remained hopeful about her return. Though Raquel allegedly remains in the facility, weighing her options about a return, the rest of the cast members are picking right back up where they left off.
"We start filming on Wednesday [June 28] and it’s like giving me anxiety," Lala Kent revealed on an Amazon Live session, according to Deadline. "They sent us like what our schedule may look like — it’s subject to change. And I’m just like, ‘Oh, we’re like really in it again. We usually have so much time to just kind of process… things change a lot. But it’s like, nope."
Who's ready for more?!
What's going on with 'Vanderpump Rules' season 11?
Though we originally wondered if Vanderpump Rules was cancelled post-Scandoval, we learned that the Bravo series has been officially renewed and began filming in late June 2023.
In fact, season 10 brought in record numbers, and if anything, gave the show new life. What's a bit uncertain at the moment, however, is who will be involved, considering Sandoval and Leviss' falls from grace, and the fact that she's been a bit hard to reach.
And we can't forget about potential comebacks. We got a sneak peek at an old, dear friend in season 10, none other than the chaotic Kristen Doute—who also dated Sandoval—when she came to comfort Ariana after the breakup. According to sources, bringing back old members like Doute is definitely a consideration, as they're still involved with the main friend group. We're definitely curious if she will venture back to her old stomping grounds. (And speaking of old members making a comeback, check out what's up with those Vanderpump Rules spinoff rumors.)
As for what comes next for the group? Reconciliation might not be in the cards anytime soon—if at all. When speaking to The New York Times back in May, Ariana Madix mentioned that it's probably not likely that she will move forward in any capacity with Sandoval or Leviss.
"I think had they not done or said all of those horrible things, maybe one day, but I think the answer ultimately is no. In our friend group, the answer is no," she told the publication. "I have nothing to say to either of them. Our show is very real and follows a real group of friends, and neither of them is in the group of friends, so, good luck."
And after all this mess? Tom and Raquel have broken up. This isn't scripted folks—you really can't make this chaos up.
When will 'Vanderpump Rules' 11 premiere?
TBD, folks. But if you can't stand the thought of a respite from the chaotic SUR clan, you can stream all seasons on VPR on Peacock.
