Vanderpump Rules Rachel Leviss’ Life Update Away From Chaos

When Rachel Leviss joined Vanderpump Rules in Season 5, no one knew what to make of her. She was dating a young James Kennedy who was constantly getting in trouble for drinking on the job and causing a stir. As time went on, Leviss immersed herself in the group. She started working at SUR and got engaged to James, whom she encouraged to become sober. Eventually, they broke up and she became best friends with Ariana Madix and Scheana Shay until she started an affair with Madix’s longtime boyfriend, Tom Sandoval.

Both Leviss and Sandoval became the villains of the series, spawning ‘Scandoval.’ She headed to a mental health facility to work on herself after the reunion where she was ripped to shreds. It was unclear if she would return for Season 11 with heavy negotiations but she ended up opting out. Leviss threw around allegations about pay, storylines, and more. Additionally, she started her own podcast, Rachel Goes Rogue, where she discusses her experience on the show.

Now, she is talking about life away from the filming while attending the iHeartRadio Music Awards. According to People, Rachel Leviss prefers podcast life over reality television.

“Oh, I have so much more control when it’s my own podcast. When you’re on a reality TV show, you’re just living your life and you don’t know what they’re going to air, or how they’re going to edit you to look a certain way, so with my own podcast, I’m able to speak freely — I know what I’m going to say won’t be edited out, and I just have a voice.”

She went on to add that she likes to talk about her journey to get to where she is today thanks to treatment. Additionally, Leviss has experts in the mental health profession providing insight for listeners.

Still Talking ‘Scandoval’

Despite staying away from Vanderpump Rules this season, Rachel Leviss still talks about the show on her podcast. She has shared how kissing Tom Schwartz helped get her a special birthday trip. Recently, Leviss’ podcast was about forgiveness and followers tore her to bits:

  • you were in Arianas home doing it when she was at her Grandmother’s funeral. you knew what you were doing,
  • Who is gonna shut her up? I’ll pay someone to shut her up.
  • And yet you’re continually trying to displace blame on others….
  • You talk about forgiveness Rachel. And then sue Ariana. What a crock!

Yes, she recently sued Tom Sandoval and Ariana Madix for revenge porn as he filmed her on FaceTime doing intimate things. He then saved it in his phone and Maidx saw it but she maintained it was deleted immediately. Though Leviss claims she is moving on, fans of the show are not so convinced.
