Absent from the group was Raquel Leviss. During an extended version of Vanderpump Rules that aired last month, the star told Andy Cohen that she was not sure if she would be back for the upcoming season.
“I don’t know. It is in question right now,” she said in the one-on-one interview, which was taped in March. “I want to.”
Leviss is currently seeking medical treatment in a mental health facility, and her future with Bravo has not been disclosed.
“Raquel is going to be checking out of the mental health facility within the next 10-15 days,” an insider exclusively told Us Weekly on Friday, June 30, noting that Leviss “could choose to stay longer.”
The VanderPump Rules producers “have remained committed to supporting Raquel’s treatment,” the source added. “Nothing has been decided yet and it’s all still up in the air. … Both sides are hoping they can work something out so that Raquel gets the treatment she needs, and she’s still able to be included in the show.”
Leviss checked into the counseling center after filming Vanderpump Rules season 10 finale back in March. During the reunion, Leviss revealed that Tom Sandoval asked her to lie about the start of their relationship that began in August of 2022.
“Raquel and her family decided before the relationship was discovered that she would enter a voluntary facility for mental health counseling,” Leviss’ rep told Us in an April statement, noting that she was not seeking treatment for substance abuse. “Raquel had planned to admit herself before the VPR reunion was taped on March 23. She was scheduled to go in pre-reunion but decided she wanted to finish her filming commitment. Bravo and production were aware and in support of her journey towards better mental health.”
