Raquel Leviss isn’t going to be hiding from her co-stars amid Scandoval!
On Wednesday, the embattled reality star told E! News that she will 100% be attending the Vanderpump Rules reunion taping in person. The 28-year-old said confidently:
“Yes, I will be attending the reunion in person.”
Thank goodness! She started this s**t, it’s only fair she has to confront her colleagues face-to-face!

Not unexpectedly, it sounds like the SUR waitress will be attempting to do a ton of damage control during the reunion, which will be filmed on Thursday. A source for Entertainment Tonight revealed she has her sights set on one person in particular, dishing:
“Raquel will be at the Vanderpump Rules reunion, in person. Raquel wants to be there to show her face and apologize to Ariana [Madix] in person.”
Uhh, we doubt Ariana’s ready to accept an apology at this point, but it’ll be juicy to see Raquel try! That said, these two aren’t the only ones who have some beef to unpack!
Scheana Shay and Raquel have also been pitted against each other since the Tom Sandoval affair news dropped. As Perezcious readers know, the former beauty queen obtained a temporary restraining order against the 37-year-old after Shay allegedly physically attacked her upon learning about the cheating scandal.

In a legal filing, Leviss claimed she was “pushed against a brick wall causing injury to the back of [her] head” and was “punched” in the face, injuring her left eye. She also alleged “mutual friends” told her the Bravo personality didn’t “regret the physical attack” and “would do it again” if she felt necessary. The pageant queen supplied images of her alleged injuries (below).

Because of these allegations, a judge granted the temporary restraining order, forcing Shay to stay 100 yards away from Leviss, her home, vehicle, and workplace. Scheana has denied the reports, but there’s not much else she can do until a March 29 hearing… which, of course, is a week after the reunion. Terrible timing!
So, what does Raquel’s attendance mean for Scheana?! Surprisingly, ET’s insider claimed BOTH women plan to be there in person, explaining:
“As far as her situation with Scheana, the logistics of filming are still being figured out but both will be there and will film. If it’s needed, they will have to film separately while maintaining 100 yards.”
Unless Shay’s legal team can make headway on the case today, it seems like a no-brainer that the ladies won’t actually come in contact, but it’s exciting to know the Scheananigans podcast host isn’t giving up on being there with everyone to discuss the drama. We’d love to hear her side of the story, too! Last week, she declared on her podcast:
“As far as I know, I’m fully intending on being there in person.”
At this point, Tom has not yet confirmed if he will be attending the reunion in person, but now that his lover is going, it seems hopeful! Either way, none of them can avoid the controversy since they’ve been busy filming everything for season 10. If the upcoming episodes are anything like the teaser, we’re in for a wild ride!
Reactions, Perezcious readers? Who do you want to see hash it out during the reunion?? Sound OFF (below)!
