Raquel Leviss is seeking treatment for her mental health.
A source tells ET, “Raquel and her family decided before the relationship was discovered that she would enter a voluntary facility for mental health counseling.”
The source adds that Raquel initially planned to seek treatment before filming the Pump Rules season ten reunion. However, she later decided to fulfill her contractual obligation to film the reunion on March 23 and check into treatment at a later date.
“She was scheduled to go in pre-reunion but decided she wanted to finish her filming commitment,” says the source. “Bravo and production were aware and in support of her journey towards better mental health.”
Raquel’s rep insists that she is not in treatment for any type of substance abuse issue.
After the scandal broke in the news, Raquel issued a public apology. She blamed the affair on her “patterns of codependency” and having an “addiction to being and feeling loved.”
“I have sought emotional validation through intimate connections that are not healthy without regard for my own well-being, sometimes negatively affecting others and often prioritizing the intimate connection over my friendships,” she explained at the time.
Raquel noted: “I am taking steps to understand my behavior and make healthier choices.”
Pump Rules airs on Wednesdays at 9 pm on Bravo.
