Andy Cohen issues PSA for upcoming ‘Pump Rules’ episode

Andy Cohen has issued a PSA over the “shocking” upcoming episode of “Vanderpump Rules” as the fallout from Tom Sandoval’s affair with Raquel Leviss continues to unravel.

The “Watch What Happens Live” host said Bravo fans aren’t going to believe that Wednesday’s episode has not been edited since news of the affair — dubbed the “Scandaval” — came to light.

“There is something I wanted to say about ‘Vanderpump Rules,’” Cohen said on SiriusXM’s “Andy Cohen Live.”

“Guys, you’re going to watch Wednesday’s episode. You are going to think that it was recut. Okay? It was not recut. This was the episode.”

Cohen warned that fans are going to be shocked to hear a conversation between Raquel, Lala Kent, and Katie Maloney as he promised viewers that the footage “was not touched.”

“I watched it on my sick bed, Wednesday’s — this episode that’s gonna air in two days — I watched it and I was like, ‘People are going to think we did this, or we moved stuff up,’” he said Monday.

“The conversations that go on between Katie and Lala and Raquel are not to be believed in the light of what has come out.”

“This is how it was going to be shown … which makes it all the more shocking. You won’t believe it,” he added.

Bravo fans were thrown for a loop after it emerged that Sandoval has been cheating on his girlfriend of nearly 10 years, Ariana Madix, for months with co-star Leviss.

As Page Six previously reported, Madix realized that Sandoval was cheating on her when she discovered a sexually explicit video of Leviss on his phone while watching his cover band perform at TomTom in Los Angeles on March 1.

After realizing the two had been “communicating inappropriately for months,” she promptly ended her relationship with the Schwartz & Sandy’s co-owner.

As news of the full-blown affair came to light, both Sandoval and Leviss issued social media statements, respectively.

“I want to apologize to Ariana. I made mistakes, I was selfish, and made reckless decisions that hurt somebody I love,” Sandoval wrote last week.

“No one deserves to feel that pain so traumatically and publicly. I can only imagine how devastating this has been for Ariana and everyone around us.”

“I feel really horrible about that,” he continued. “My biggest regret is that I dishonored Ariana. I never meant to disappoint so many people, including our loving families and friends … I owed Ariana better.”

For her part, Leviss issued a lengthy statement in which she blamed the affair on her “addiction” to love and vowed to do better from here on out.

“I am reflecting on my choices, speaking to a counselor and I am learning things about myself such as my patterns of codependency and addiction to being and feeling loved,” she wrote.

“I have sought emotional validation through intimate connections that are not healthy without regard for my own well-being, sometimes negatively affecting others and often prioritizing the intimate connection over my friendships.”

While Madix has yet to publicly comment on the news, she was recently spotted dancing her troubles away in Mexico.

The Bravolebrity was spotted partying in the city of Oaxaca, where she celebrated chef Michael Jenkins and Lauren Basco’s wedding.
