Sounds like Raquel Leviss and Tom Sandoval not only still have that romantic spark between ’em, they’re not afraid to show it off for Bravo cameras, either!!
We’re learning more about the first post-affair scene the duo filmed for season ten of Vanderpump Rules. According to insiders, it was STEAMY!!! Of course, this comes amid the demise of Tom’s decade-long relationship with Ariana Madix after the shocking cheating reveal involving Leviss. But things are moving forward in the VPR realm regardless…
According to Page Six, the 39-year-old Sandoval and his 28-year-old
mistress girlfriend whatever “kissed on camera” while producers were rolling tape on Saturday. That three-word reports comes from an insider who confirmed Tom was filming a VPR scene with Raquel at her North Hollywood apartment that day when the smooch supposedly took place. The insider also noted things remain “complicated” as the two reality TV stars grappled with this new level of notoriety.
Of course, earlier on Tuesday morning, we reported new details about Tom’s late-night jaunt to Raquel’s pad. When that report first went out, Tom’s reps claimed his late-night arrival there was because the duo needed to film for VPR. We were skeptical about that claim at the time. But now, this new insider would seem to have confirmed it — Tom and Raquel are working hard at getting producers the shots they need for the hit Bravo show. Even as they apparently dive head-first into building their real-life relationship amid all the affair drama!
Things aren’t going quite as well between Tom and VPR producers! According to insiders, the restaurateur-slash-musician apparently went to producers in the last few days and said he REFUSES to film anymore scenes for the show unless they stop making him look like the bad guy in the whole Ariana-Raquel affair mess!
Of all people, VPR alum Jax Taylor was the one to break that piece of news on Twitter on Tuesday. That afternoon, he tweeted — and then quickly deleted — this interesting message that appeared to be about Sandoval allegedly “now refusing to film” scenes for the hit Bravo show:

And ET appears to have corroborated that claim from Jax, too. In a report published later on Tuesday, the news outlet cited an unnamed source who revealed the TomTom head’s apparent frustration with how his initial weekend filming work alongside Leviss went:
“Tom wasn’t happy with how the scene went with Raquel and felt like it was going to paint him in a negative light. He told producers he’d like to re-film the scene, but producers weren’t having it.”
Uh-oh!! Sandoval reportedly even gave Bravo cameras the ultimate ultimatum in order to get his way:
“Tom told production that he would no longer shoot Vanderpump Rules if they don’t listen to him.”
Good luck with that, dude. You just know Andy Cohen‘s got air-tight contracts with that entire network’s reality TV stars!!
To tie a bow on the ultimatum claim, ET also revealed a separate detail from another source who confirmed “there are plans to film again with Tom later this week.” So that would seem to be a quick cave on his part… Just saying!
What do U make of ALL these new VPR developments, tho, Perezcious readers??
