A “Vanderpump Rules” star spoke up about rumors that two of her co-stars have recently hooked up.
Five months after Tom Schwartz and Katie Maloney announced plans to divorce, it was rumored that the owner of Schwartz & Sandy was dating co-star Raquel Leviss at Scheana Shay and Brock Davies’ wedding in Mexico.
According to a source for Hollywood Life, Maloney walked in on Schwartz, 39, and Leviss, 27, hours before the wedding ceremony at a Cancun resort in an underwater cave, and Bravo caught the aftermath. “Katie went off and cameras were rolling on the whole thing,” the insider claimed. “She yelled at them and they yelled back.”
Another source told Us Weekly that Schwartz and Leviss were later seen “at the after party,” and that more than kisses “happened” between the two co-stars.
In an interview with Radar Online at the Summer Spectacular event held by the Brent Shapiro Foundation on September 12, 2022, “Vanderpump Rules” star Lala Kent revealed that she has been “cheated” by the connection between Leviss and Schwartz. She also hinted that some of the drama that happened after that could be seen in the upcoming 10th season of “Vanderpump Rules.”
It’s no surprise that the author of “Give Them Lala” doesn’t send any Leviss/Schwartz romance. For starters, Leviss ended her engagement to Kent’s close friend, James Kennedy, in December 2021, so Kent is undoubtedly Team James.
Not only is she close friends with both Kennedy and Maloney, but Kent has long argued with Leviss, once calling her a “Bambi-eyed b****”. During the season 9 reunion of “Vanderpump Rules,” Leviss revealed that she knew Kent as “a mistress” of a then-married Randall Emmett when she first met her.
In addition, Kent recently revealed that she cut Schwartz from her life when he continued to talk to her ex after their fleeting breakup last fall. “I learned that Schwartz dealt with that person” [Randall] the other day. So I took him out,” Kent said in “Watch What Happens Live” in April 2022, per People. “I’m not the type of person to tell you to pick sides. But in this situation, if you don’t side with me or you stay in Switzerland, I don’t want anything to do with you.”
While Leviss is under fire for violating the “girl code” by reaching out to Schwartz, who is still legally married to Maloney, an insider claimed the two women are not close friends.
“She and Katie aren’t close,” an insider told Us Weekly in September 2022, adding that if Leviss had never interacted with Schwartz if she was friends with his ex.
“She has no regrets,” the source said of Leviss. “Katie is the one who made the decision to divorce Tom. Whatever he does to another girl is none of her business, friends believe.”
