Lisa Vanderpump Slams Raquel Leviss’ Revenge Porn Lawsuit Plus Ariana Madix Denies Ever Sending Video of Raquel to CoStars


Lisa Vanderpump calls out former employee Rachel Leviss for her role in Scandoval and her lawsuit against Tom Sandoval and Ariana Madix.

As AllAboutTRH previously reported, Raquel Leviss is suing Tom Sandoval and Ariana Madix “for revenge porn, eavesdropping, intentional infliction of emotional distress and invasion of privacy.”

On Thursday, February 29, Raquel Leviss filed a legal complaint in the Los Angeles Superior Court pertaining to the intimate FaceTime video that she claims Tom Sandoval filmed without her consent.

Now, Lisa Vanderpump is sharing her thoughts on the legal mess while commenting on the recent allegations against Andy Cohen.

“That’s ridiculous,” the Real Housewives of Beverly Hills alum told TMZ on Friday in response to Raquel’s revenge porn lawsuit.

“I think if you don’t want to have somebody share your porn, then don’t send it to your best friend’s boyfriend,” she added.

When it was pointed out that Raquel was not aware Sandoval recorded her while performing the sexual act, Lisa Vanderpump responded by joking that Ariana “didn’t share” the video with her.

“Why did she leave me out?” Lisa Vanderpump quipped before noting that the entire ordeal was “all inappropriate.”

Raquel’s rep replied Lisa Vanderpump’s remarks in a statement to Page Six, saying the comments are “disappointing choice for an executive on the show since victim shaming is a defense mechanism often used by abusers and coming from a person in a position of power can cause even further harm to a persons mental health. ” 

While Sandoval and Ariana have yet to address Raquel’s lawsuit, Ariana Madix previously denied ever sharing the video with the rest of the Vanderpump Rules cast.

“I saw about maybe five seconds of that,” the 38-year-old said on Scheana Shay’s podcast last August.

“When she sent a cease and desist to the entire cast as precaution … my lawyer responded to said precaution with very thorough, very clear information that proved and showed [my innocence].”

Meanwhile, Lisa Vanderpump was also asked about Leah McSweeney’s allegation that Andy Cohen “snorts cocaine” with his favorite Housewives.

“I’ve partied with him hundreds of times in my business, in my house, in New York, but I’ve never seen anything like that,” LVP explained. “I would categorically say no; he wouldn’t do that.”

She went on to call Leah’s allegations “bulls-t,” noting that the Watch What Happens Live host uses marijuana.

When it comes to the claims that Bravo producers force Housewives to drink on camera, LVP said, “You drink if you want to drink … You’re responsible for your own actions.”

However, a source close to the Real Housewives of New York alum told Page Six on Saturday, “Multiple people have shared the same account about Andy Cohen, including Kathy Griffin.”

“The number of current complaints and the hundreds of victims and lawsuits, including, but not limited to, emotional, sexual, and substance abuse inbound at Bravo, supports these claims, and Andy has stated that he is an executive on all of these shows.”

The insider added, “To single out and invalidate one person’s experience utilizing current paid Bravo talent is very transparent. Victim-blaming from Bravo talent isn’t surprising. The volume of complaints against this toxic workplace speak for themselves. Andy wouldn’t have hired crisis PR if there were no crisis.”

“This is a classic David and Goliath scenario where a multi-billion dollar public company is sending out the troops to try to bury the truth,” the source concluded. “But women are strong, and the truth is stronger.”

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