Raquel Leviss admitted to getting “really close” to Tom Sandoval in a resurfaced clip from July 2022 — which is around the same time the pair’s affair started.
However, the “Vanderpump Rules” star claimed Sandoval, who is 11 years her senior, just saw her as his “little sister.”
“I’ve gotten really close with Scheana [Shay] and Ariana and Tom Sandoval as well,” Leviss told E! News last summer. “I feel like he’s become one of my best friends lately.”
She continued to gush about her co-star, saying, “he just is so in touch with himself and is fully accepting of who he is and is so confident.”
“I don’t know. I feel like he looks at me like a little sister and he’s supporting me in a very kind way. He’s a really great guy.”
However, the pair’s platonic relationship quickly morphed into a “full-on affair” — despite Sandoval’s 10-year relationship with Ariana Madix, who broke up with him last week.
In fact, an insider told Page Six that the former beauty pageant queen “slept over” at the former couple’s shared home while Madix, 37, was “out of town.”
Not only that, but their “VPR” co-star James Kennedy, who was previously engaged to Leviss, claims the pair would sometimes get it on while “Ariana [was] sleeping.”
We’re told Madix “found out” about the pair’s affair Wednesday at Sandoval’s band’s show after stumbling upon inappropriate messages — and sexually explicit video — sent from Leviss on her now ex-boyfriend’s phone.
The video somehow got into the hands of her “Pump Rules” co-stars, leading Leviss to take legal action.
The 28-year-old had her attorneys send her cast mates a legal letter imploring them to delete the video and stop sending it around, TMZ reported Tuesday.
Leviss claims the clip was recorded “illegally without [her] knowledge or consent” and cited a California law against revenge porn.

Although some of the Bravolebrities seem un-phased by the legal threats, their full reactions will be shown on the TV show later this year.
The network confirmed Monday that cameras have been rolling to capture the affair’s fallout.
“We have resumed filming on #PumpRules and this story will be unfolding on camera,” Bravo captioned a photo of Kennedy filming a confessional.
The post showed a clapperboard held in front of the DJ’s face, with “Scandoval” written as the scene name.
All the juicy drama is slated to be part of the series’ ongoing Season 10.
