Raquel Leviss is returning to her roots & we don’t mean her natural hair color. The Vanderpump Rules star is now going back to using her birth name.
The Vanderpump Rules star reportedly had an “epiphany” while seeking mental health treatment for the last several months.
Raquel Leviss “was very upset her haters” uncovered that her real name was Rachel and began to use it as a “weapon” amid Scandoval.
“Her therapists explained to her [that] her detractors had weaponized the name ‘Rachel’ to hurt her,” TMZ reported.
The Bravolebs therapists told her that “taking the name [Rachel] back and embracing it” would “neutralize” the haters and internet trolls.
While Raquel’s legal name has always remained Rachel, she began going by the name Racquel at a very young age. Friends and family “began calling her Raquel at a very early age, and the name stuck.”
Last week Raquel checked out of The Meadows in Wickenburg, Arizona, after receiving treatment there for the last two months.
Raquel Leviss reportedly spent $200,000 on her stay at the facility.
Since leaving treatment, Raquel has been staying with a friend as she prepares to return to Vanderpump Rules for season 11.
As we previously reported, the 28-year-old SURver is playing “hardball” with Bravo as she negotiates her contract for season 11 of Vanderpump Rules.
“She wants to get as much money as she possibly can, so she is playing hardball,” an insider told Page Six last week.
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.
