Tom Schwartz revealed in January that he knew about Scandoval
During an appearance on Wednesday night’s episode of “Watch What Happens Live,” Schwartz revealed that her close friend Sandoval is head over heels in love with her co-star Leviss. Page six.
The two have reportedly been an item for months, unbeknownst to Ariana Madix, with whom Sandov was involved.
They reportedly started their romance with a one-night stand in August 2022, which turned even more passionate in the fall. Sandoval then decided to spill the beans to Schwartz in January 2023.
“Tom came to me in January… and told me he was in love with Raquel. I was amazed,” the “Basally Stassi” actor told host Andy Cohen.
She added that in the early stages of Sandoval and Leviss’ relationship, their romance was unknown to the “Vanderpump Rules” stars, but her close friend became “flamboyant” and “brazen” after their conversation.
“He told me he had a game plan.”
Schwartz noted that when Sandoval and Leviss had a one-night stand, his close friend was going through a “midlife crisis” and Leviss was there to support him emotionally.
Despite this, he still called the duo’s relationship “inappropriate”, apparently due to Sandoval’s relationship with Madix.
She also blamed her close friend for lying to her about her relationship with Madix, saying Sandoval told her they weren’t “healthy” and “intimate.”
According to Schwartz, this led him to not inform Madix of Sandoval’s affair with Leviss when he found out about it.
“He did a good job of calming me down. … And he said he had a game plan, he was going to do the right thing — and then he just put it off,” the 40-year-old said.
According to Tom Schwartz, Tom Sandoval took advantage of his kindness
Unsurprisingly, Madix found out about Sandoval’s affair with Levis, which led to a breakup in March after nearly ten years of dating.
The implosion of the relationship also smeared Schwartz because he knew about the affair and kept it to himself.
Because of this, the actor said he was “rather upset with Sando for taking advantage of (her) kindness”.
He added, per Page Six, “And it put a lot of people, not just me, in very compromising situations where our integrity was at stake.”
Despite the fact that public opinion is at an all-time low with Sandoval, Schwartz said his close friend is “addicted” to Leviss and has called her his “heroine.”
“It’s addicting. . . ‘It’s a rapture for fans,'” Schwartz noted, before adding that his statement wasn’t “disrespecting” people with addictions.
Ariana Madix is deeply hurt by Tom Sandoval’s actions
Although Sandoval seems to live in a cozy world with Leviss, his actions hurt Madix deeply.
“It completely blinded him; devastated doesn’t even scratch the surface of how he feels,” said an insider, per People. “This is someone she thought she knew and planned to spend the rest of her life with. This betrayal cannot even be put into words.”
The reality star later issued a statement a few days after the end of the relationship, which reflected the emotional trauma experienced.
He said, “I know I’m not alone in this. So many of my closest friends are also grieving this loss and reeling from this betrayal on many levels. I’m so lucky to have the best support system in the world and I hope I can repay everyone for the love they’ve shown me.”
