Tom Sandoval Reflects on Fighting for Raquel Leviss and the Heartbreak that Followed

Tom Sandoval of Bravo Network’s ‘Vanderpump Rules’ recently expressed his feelings of heartache resulting from his broken relationship with ex-girlfriend Raquel Leviss.

Sandoval opened up about the turmoil he’s experienced for the past year and revealed on the December 7 episode of the Two T’s in a Pod podcast that he had “fought so hard for Raquel.” He decided to quit drinking and smoking when Leviss checked into rehab for mental health treatment in April. After Leviss blocked him on Instagram and moved to Arizona, Sandoval disclosed that he was “fully in love with her.” He described their bond as deeper than just a superficial or physical connection.

Earlier this year, Sandoval’s ex-girlfriend Ariana Madix dumped him after getting wind of his affair with Leviss. The scandal erupted when Madix uncovered FaceTime videos of Leviss on Sandoval’s phone, directly confronting him about the relationship. Their action-packed breakup caused a tumultuous media frenzy, now culminating in Sandoval setting the record straight in a new podcast interview. Sandoval also expressed that he has not spoken to Madix since their split.

Sandoval elaborated on his commitment to tour with his band, even though he was mulling over taking time off from it all to focus on his mental health. Financial responsibility has been a major issue for Sandoval, as he revealed that he is the one footing the bills for almost everything. This included the mortgage. He talked about Madix not pulling her weight and lagging behind on her own financial responsibilities.

Furthermore, the reality star passionately disclosed that he contemplated suicide following his breakup. Additionally, when asked about Leviss’s feelings toward him, Sandoval admitted he was uncertain about Leviss’s feelings. He also expressed hope that she loved him before they parted ways.

Sandoval’s heartbreak reveals the very difficult time he’s been enduring since the very messy, publicized affair. However, despite the strife, he remains committed to being forthcoming with his audience.
