The “Vanderpump Rules” season 10 reunion special was filmed on Thursday, March 23. Lala Kent discussed the reunion while recording the March 31 episode of her castmate, Scheana Shay’s podcast, “Scheananigans with Scheana Shay.” During the podcast episode, Shay and Kent mentioned that their co-star Tom Sandoval cheated on his girlfriend of nearly a decade, Ariana Madix, with Raquel Leviss, who joined the show’s cast in 2017. Madix broke up with Sandoval once she discovered the affair. According to the “Good As Gold” singer, Leviss did not seem upset during the production of the reunion.
“She sat at the reunion and did not shed one tear,” said Shay.
Kent then claimed that Leviss “actually smiled” while filming the reunion special.
“It was scary, it was like watching the Joker,” stated the 32-year-old.
Kent also shared that she did not believe Leviss handled the reunion well.
“If I were her, I would have walked in and just owned it, said like, ‘Sorry I hurt [Madix], but not sorry enough to like stop. I dig him, I’m in love with him, I didn’t care about you as much as I pretended,’” revealed the mother of one. “I asked her, I said, ‘Did you have a PR team? You need to fire them immediately and have someone else be prepping you for these things because this is real bad.’”
Kent also shared that she called Leviss “a f***** idiot” while filming the reunion special.
