Raquel Leviss Says She ‘Should Have Respected’ Ariana Madix & Tom Sandoval’s Relationship

Raquel Leviss is taking accountability. The “Vanderpump Rules” star is responding to fan chatter about why she pursued a relationship with Tom Sandoval while he was dating her friend Ariana Madix. On Saturday, the 28-year-old commented on a clip posted on Instagram where a fan questions why she didn’t ask Tom to end things with Ariana before they pursued a relationship. In her comment, Raquel explained her low self-esteem was a reason she pursued Tom. “100% you’re not wrong! I should have had more self-respect than that and should have respected the relationship that Ariana had with Tom,” she said. “No excuses… however, looking back, I see I had low self-worth and Tom kept telling me he was actively breaking up with her ‘amicably’ for her ‘mental health,’ which I can now see was magical thinking,” she added. News broke that Ariana and Tom split back in March, after he was caught cheating on her with Raquel. The fallout of their relationship was television on Season 10 of the hit Bravo reality show “Vanderpump Rules.”
