Raquel Leviss and Tom Sandoval locked lips in their first post-“Scandoval” scene for “Vanderpump Rules” Season 10, multiple sources tell Page Six.
“They kissed on camera,” one source tells us exclusively, adding that the smooch took place at Leviss’ North Hollywood apartment on Saturday.
Despite the kiss, the status of the pair’s relationship remains “complicated,” another insider shares.
Page Six has reached out to reps for Bravo, Sandoval and Leviss for comment.
Sandoval was spotted making a late-night visit to Leviss’ place — just one day after longtime girlfriend Ariana Madix dumped him for cheating with the former pageant queen.
A rep for the Tom Sandoval & the Most Extras singer previously told us that he exited the building through a private entrance once filming was over.
Both Bravo and network honcho Andy Cohen confirmed that cameras have been filming the entire bombshell and it will play out before the reunion airs.
Page Six exclusively reported that Sandoval and Madix sat down to discuss the aftermath of his infidelity for a scene filmed Friday at the exes’ shared home in Los Angeles’ Valley Village enclave. (Both parties are still living there.)
Sources told us that Madix, 37, left the discussion feeling “gaslit” by Sandoval, 39, who became romantically involved with Leviss, 28, last summer.
“He gave her several excuses as to why he never copped to cheating,” an insider said, adding that “he didn’t tell her about the affair with Leviss because he was worried about how it would impact her mental health.”

The source noted that Madix felt “perturbed” by the conversation and has since confided in her “VPR” friends — including Katie Maloney, Scheana Shay, Lala Kent and show alum Kristen Doute — who are “disappointed” by how they feel Sandoval is handling the split.
“[Madix] has recapped what happened with her friends and castmates, the majority of whom are disappointed Tom seems unable to take accountability for his actions or express substantial remorse,” the source explained.
“Of course, they’ve been rallying behind her in the passing days.”
Sandoval addressed the cheating scandal in a statement shared via Instagram Saturday night. While urging fans not to “direct [their] anger” over his indiscretions at his Schwartz & Sandy’s business partners, he failed to directly apologize to Madix.
“Where’s the mention of hurting Ariana?! No apologies to her?” Maloney, 36, wrote on her Instagram Story.
“where’s Ariana’s apology in this?” Kent, 32, added in her own Story. “It’s called narcissism… & it’s terrifying.”
A source previously told Page Six that Madix was “heartbroken” and felt completely “blindsided” by the betrayal, especially as she had been a good friend to Leviss over the past several years.
Madix learned of the affair when she saw a sexually explicit video sent by Leviss on Sandoval’s phone. The discovery came the same night Madix supported Sandoval at a concert for his cover band at TomTom in West Hollywood on March 1.
Meanwhile, Leviss was on the other side of the country participating in a New York City press tour with co-star Scheana Shay. (Shay, 37, has since ended her friendship with Leviss, Page Six reported this weekend.)
Sources told us on Saturday that Sandoval and Leviss planned “for weeks” to tell Madix about their affair before she uncovered it herself.
It’s unclear whether they wanted to tell Madix on camera, but the idea to confess had been “ruminating for weeks,” an insider shared.
Madix and Leviss have yet to make a public statement on the matter.
“Vanderpump Rules” airs Wednesdays at 9 p.m. ET on Bravo.
