Days before news broke that she allegedly hooked up with Tom Sandoval, Raquel Leviss told Page Six exclusively that her last text exchange was with him and Tom Schwartz.
When asked about “the last cast member” she’d “texted with,” Leviss revealed to “Virtual Reali-tea” co-host Danny Murphy, “I have a text thread with Tom and Tom.”
“Mine is from Schwartz saying, ‘Raq, come kick it with us tomorrow. See ya mañana,’” she read aloud.
Looking at co-star Scheana Shay, who joined her for the chat, the former beauty queen explained, “That was the night we went to [their new bar] Schwartz & Sandy’s, which is the night that I posted that photo.”
The photo in question — branded “desperado” by Schwartz’s ex-wife, Katie Maloney — was posted to Leviss’ Instagram account on Feb. 18.
As cameras rolled for Season 10 of the Bravo reality show, which is currently airing, Leviss, 28, made out with Schwartz against Maloney’s wishes.
But on Friday, TMZ reported that she allegedly hooked up with Sandoval, too, prompting his longtime girlfriend and co-star, Ariana Madix, to leave him.
Sources told the outlet that Madix, 37, found out about the alleged cheating in the last couple of days and immediately ended things with Sandoval, whom she had been dating since 2013.
Page Six can confirm the pair split and that cameras are rolling to document the fallout.
Reps for Bravo, Leviss, Sandoval and Madix — who has since deactivated her social media accounts — did not immediately respond to our requests for comment.
However, Leviss’ ex-fiancé, James Kennedy, posted a screenshot of the story to his Instagram account and captioned it, “Hope you all feel as sick as I do. This explains everything.”
He also pinned a comment from a fan that read, “these two are THE most vile subhumans i’ve ever met 🤢,” prompting co-star Lala Kent to reply, “I’ve been telling y’all! Everyone said I was the ‘bully.’ … I’ve known these two are disgusting from the jump.”

Ariana’s brother, Jeremy Madix, echoed the sentiments in a lengthy comment of his own, calling out people who “social climb and be sooooo fake that they’re willing to s–t on people that are supposed to be their ‘best friend.’”
He went on to call Sandoval, 39, a “try hard having a midlife crisis with his cringey band” and claimed Leviss “has faked her way to the top trying to make something of her life willing to step on whoever to get there starting with James.”
He added, “Let’s all remember Raquel was a fan of the show before all of this. Does anyone pay attention?”
