Just weeks before the duo allegedly hooked up, Tom Schwartz described “Vanderpump Rules” co-star Raquel Leviss as “cool as s-t” on Scheana Shay’s podcast.
In the “Scheananigans” episode from July 22, Schwartz, 39, talked about his divorce from Katie Maloney and admitted that their close friendship may have made him forget about Leviss.
We get from when Tom Schwartz revealed that he was caught up in his world and was married; thus, he never took the time to know Raquel. He said she was cool but never considered investing his time in her. Tom Schwartz added that he knows it is a horrible way to phrase it, but he never gave Raquel any chances.
Less than a month later, at Shay and Brock Davies’ wedding in Mexico, Leviss, 27, and Schwartz are said to have had sex.
A source recently revealed to US Weekly that some heavy drinking was involved before Tom Schwartz and Raquel Leviss made out.
The co-stars, who’d already denied hooking up at Coachella months prior, said they heard “through the grapevine” that “more happened” between them.
Tom Schwartz Denied Him Being Involved With Raquel Leviss:
In response to Shay’s question on her show, “Will you make the rumors true?” TomTom co-owner Tom Schwartz smiled and said that he never knew what to say.”
Leviss was keen to test the waters with Schwartz, according to Shay.
Maloney joined other reality stars for cocktails while she was in Mexico for the wedding, including James Kennedy, who had formerly been engaged to Leviss.
She was “uninvited,” according to Shay’s now-husband. Thus she was unable to attend the party.
After starting a relationship in September 2010, Schwartz and Maloney married in front of Bravo cameras in August 2016.
Maloney declared that getting a divorce in 2022 “was the toughest thing” she has ever had to do.
