Raquel Leviss Calls Tom Sandoval a ‘Narcissist A–hole’; Reveals What Ended Their Relationship


Raquel Leviss is coming for Tom Sandoval hard in the latest episode of her podcast, Rachel Goes Rogue, and reveals what led to their split and more.

On the February 10 episode of her Rachel Goes Rogue podcast, the 29-year-old opened up about what caused her to end her relationship with Tom while also calling out the Vanderpump Rules OG’s selfish and narcissistic behavior. 

After reflecting on a package she received from her now ex-flame during her stint in a mental health treatment facility, the former SURver revealed how Sandoval insulted her and proved that he didn’t truly love her like he claimed. 

She also details how Sandoval overwhelmed her with “love bombing” throughout their eight-month-long affair. Now, in hindsight, she also sees that Sandoval is a “narcissistic a—hole.”

“When I was at The Meadows, Tom and I would send letters to each other. So I got a big package. There [were] three items in there, a friendship lamp, where you tap it and it changes colors, Bluetooth-connected, one lamp per person, and I was like, ‘Oh my gosh, that’s actually a really cool gift.’ And then the second thing that was in that box was an Us Magazine, and we were on the front cover in a little square on the top right, and I was like, ‘Oh my gosh. I’ve always wanted to be on the cover of a magazine. I didn’t think it was gonna be like this. But, still cool.’ And then the third item that was in there was a letter,” Raquel Leviss recalled on her podcast.

Naturally, Raquel saved Tom’s letter because it had sentimental value. However, when she later re-read the letter and reflected on its content, she came to a very big realization about Tom and their relationship. 

“I started feeling sick to my stomach because the letter was so insulting to me and the work that I was doing at this treatment facility. He was basically saying, ‘In all the years that I’ve known you, I’ve never seen you so dependent on a place. He was trying to convince me to leave The Meadows and come back to him,” she explained. 

Raquel says that she wasn’t ready to leave treatment and had shared that with Sandoval, noting that at the time, she didn’t think it was safe for her to do so as she was still struggling with her mental health. 

“He tried to convince me to leave anyway. And that’s when I really knew that this person does not love me. And this is a love bomb tactic to try to have this control over me,” she confessed.

After realizing that she was ready to tell Tom Sandoval that she had no interest in continuing their relationship, Raquel initially planned to reach out to him, but her therapist advised her against it. 

“So I just didn’t call him again, and I blocked his number. And, you know, some people would consider that ghosting. And I think he was hurt by it because, you know, he didn’t get any closure,” she said. 

Elsewhere on the podcast, Raquel Leviss opened up about the two “narcissistic a—holes” she dated in her 20s. 

“I fell in love with one narcissist a**hole, and after that relationship ended, after five years of being in that relationship, I fell into the hands of another narcissist a**hole,” Raquel shared, seemingly referring to her relationships with Tom Sandoval and James Kennedy.

When it comes to her relationship with James, whom Raquel did not name, she says that despite their long-distance relationship, he confessed his love for her only a week after they met. She notes that their relationship was exciting from the start but took a turn because of the way he treated her and others.

While looking back on her relationship with Sandoval, Raquel said:

“In that situation, I felt like he was really giving me this undivided attention. I was able to express my emotions, and he could really understand what I was saying. It seemed like it was on a deeper level than what I experienced before, and everything else went out the window, all my morals went out the window, and he became like the most important person to me, and you know, we would go on trips together and stuff like that, and I consider that like a form of love bombing.”

“I think that there’s like a part with living in the fantasy, and I don’t know, for some reason, whenever I’m dating guys like this, they become the most important person to me,” she added.

Vanderpump Rules airs Tuesdays at 8 p.m. ET on Bravo.
