Having recently been revealed to have been having an affair with her co-star Tom Sandoval, Raquel Leviss from the reality show Vanderpump Rules has checked into a mental health treatment facility. In the past month, Leviss and Sandoval’s affair has been making headlines after it was revealed that Sandoval was in a nine-year relationship with Ariana Madix while they were in a months-long relationship.
Prior to the discovery of Leviss’ affair, Leviss voluntarily entered a mental health facility for mental health counseling. The representative stated that Leviss was not in rehab for substance abuse issues, but rather in a program focused on mental health and trauma therapy. The Bravo and production team reportedly knew about Leviss’ decision and supported her efforts to improve her mental health. The network also released a statement that they were committed to supporting Leviss and her journey of self-improvement. They stated that she was taking the necessary steps to better herself, which is commendable.
Leviss has remained silent on the recent news, and her representative has not provided a response to comment requests. Nonetheless, Leviss expressed remorse for her behavior in an earlier statement, where she apologized specifically to Ariana Madix and acknowledged causing harm to others. She disclosed that she had been attending therapy sessions aimed at addressing codependency tendencies and an addiction to acceptance seeking. Her expectations were that these interventions would enable her to interrupt negative behavioral patterns while emphasizing mental wellness as a top priority.
It was Sandoval’s first interview after the scandal in which he described her first kiss as “awesome,” “kind,” “smart,” “witty,” “fun,” “beautiful,” and “amazing.” During his allegedly unhealthy and unhappy relationship with Madix, Leviss was also said to have been a source of strength for him.
Leviss’ decision to seek mental health counseling during the public scrutiny of her affair with Sandoval shows that she is committed to taking care of her emotional well-being. In this ongoing reality TV saga, fans and followers continue to keep an eye on the unfolding story. Leviss’s commitment to her mental health stands out from the rest of the cast as an act of self-care in a situation that could easily have taken its toll on her. She has shown strength and resilience through this difficult time, demonstrating that she can take care of herself no matter what life throws her way.
