Raquel Leviss wants Bravo to show her the money! The Pump Rules star is playing “hardball” with Bravo while negotiating her season 11 contract.
“She wants to get as much money as she possibly can, so she is playing hardball,” an insider reveals.
Filming for season 11 of Vanderpump Rules is in full swing, but Raquel Leviss has yet to join her co-stars on camera. The source notes that Raquel and Bravo will have “a deal” in place by next week when the cast takes their first cast trip to Lake Tahoe.
The source insists “she will appear” on season 11 of Pump Rules. “But for the right price, she will be there,” the insider explains.
Despite the belief that Raquel will begin “filming soon,” for season 11, the source admits that she is “genuinely concerned for her well-being,” especially after being ganged up on at the season 10 reunion.
“Watching the reunion was excruciating,” the source explains. “The way the other women just completely tore her apart and essentially wished her dead. It was just a lot to take.”
Raquel has not seen any members of the Vanderpump Rules cast since they filmed the explosive season 10 reunion in March, which came just weeks after her months-long affair with Tom Sandoval was exposed.
Since shortly after filming the season 10 reunion, Raquel has been in treatment for her mental health.
“Raquel and her family decided months before the relationship was discovered that she needed mental health treatment and ultimately decided she would enter a voluntary facility for mental health counseling,” Raquel’s rep said in a statement in April. “Raquel was scheduled to go in pre-reunion but decided she wanted to finish her filming commitment.”
In May, Raquel and Tom called it quits on their relationship just two months after their affair was made public.
“Raquel dipped out. Sandoval is not the one for her,” an insider told Page Six at the time.
