Vanderpump Rules” alum Rachel “Raquel” Leviss said she apologized to her former castmate, Katie Maloney, for a recent Instagram post.

On the April 7 episode of her podcast, “Rachel Goes Rogue,” Leviss noted that she and Maloney separately posed while in attendance at the 2024 iHeartRadio Music Awards, held on April 1. She referenced that Jo Wenberg, a friend of Maloney’s ex-husband Tom Schwartz, shared an image from a Life & Style article that named Leviss one of the best-dressed individuals from the event. According to Reality Blurb, Wenberg also included a portion of the article wherein Maloney and her “Disrespectfully” podcast co-host, Dayna Kathan, were included on the list of the worst-dressed iHeartRadio Music Awards guests.

While recording the “Rachel Goes Rogue” episode, Leviss acknowledged that she re-posted Wenberg’s upload to her Instagram Stories.

“I guess my ego got in the way a little bit. And I encouraged Jo to post the best and worst showing Katie and Dayna. Then I reposted it,” said Leviss.

She then stated that while posting the Instagram Story “felt good in the moment,” she did not stand behind her actions. She said after speaking to her therapist, she determined that she should “take accountability” for the situation.

“I decided that that was not my best decision. Because I am in this space of learning and growing. And also being kind,” said Leviss. “And it’s so easy to get on the same level as some of these other people. But that’s not who I want to be.”

The model stated that she “decided to reach out and apologize to Katie and Dayna personally.”

“I don’t think that they were worse dressed by any means,” continued Leviss.
