Raquel Leviss is taking action against her “Vanderpump Rules” co-stars who may have obtained a recording of her intimate FaceTime session with Tom Sandoval that ended his relationship with Ariana Madix.
Leviss had her attorneys send a legal letter to cast members imploring them to delete the video and stop sending it around, as the 28-year-old claims it was recorded “illegally without [her] knowledge or consent,” TMZ reported Tuesday.
Leviss’ lawyers cited a California law against revenge porn, which makes it a crime to invade someone’s privacy by disseminating “nonconsensual pornography.”
Although the letter specifically demands the video not be passed around, it reportedly does not state that Sandoval, 39, recorded it.
The lawyers ordered anyone in possession of the recording to promptly delete it from their phones, the cloud or “any other manner or method in which the recording may exist,” according to the outlet.
Neither Leviss’ rep nor her attorney immediately returned Page Six’s requests for comment.
Page Six reported last Friday that Madix, 37, found out Leviss and Sandoval were having a “months-long” affair after seeing the sexually explicit video on his phone.
A source told us that Madix was left “heartbroken,” as she had “no idea there were any issues” in her nearly decade-long relationship with the bar owner.
“Ariana was blindsided by the cheating,” the source shared, adding that Madix and Sandoval had been “affectionate in public recently.”
The insider noted that Madix feels “betrayed” by Leviss, whom she considered a “friend.”
Although the Bravo show’s cast has been vocal with their outrage on social media, there will be more to come on TV later this year, as cameras have been rolling on the fallout of the affair.

The network gave fans a behind-the-scenes look of James Kennedy filming a confessional Monday for an upcoming episode. A clapperboard held in front of the DJ’s face revealed the scene was called “Scandoval” and would be part of the series’ ongoing 10th season.
“We have resumed filming on #PumpRules and this story will be unfolding on camera,” Bravo captioned the snapshot.
