‘Vanderpump Rules’ Insider Talks Raquel Leviss’ Secret Pregnancy
Executive producer, Alex Baskin, has shot down a “wild” internet rumor claiming that Vanderpump Rules star, Raquel Leviss, is secretly pregnant with Tom Sandoval’s baby.
Baskin addressed the plethora of rumors that circulated online after the reality star went into hiding in comments made to Page Six, ahead of an FYC event held Tuesday night at The Aster in Hollywood, California.
“The pregnancy one was wild,” Baskin told the outlet, referring to the theories swirling online.
“She’s not pregnant by the way,” he noted, squashing speculation that the reality star was hiding a baby bump.
A TikTok user recently shared a since-deleted video that claimed that she had received a message from someone connected to Raquel’s sister. The person alleged that the former beauty queen was “hiding out” at her grandmother’s house in Tucson, Arizona to conceal a pregnancy.
The 28-year-old Bravo star reportedly checked into a mental health facility to receive treatment, shortly after the bombshell affair was exposed. Sandoval, 40, had been in a nine-year relationship with Raquel’s close friend, Ariana Madix, when the covert romance was discovered, in early March.
“I have not directly spoken with her. She’s been a little bit cut off,” Baskin said, adding that he was relieved to hear she’s “doing well.”
He revealed — “We’ve gotten good reports back from her team — who are taking care of her — and from her family as well. I think it’s a good thing for her to take a minute down and sort of assess where she is.”
Lisa Vanderpump confirmed that she had not been in touch with Raquel since the filming of the Pump Rules Season 10 reunion. The cast reportedly ripped into both Raquel and Sandoval during the explosive sit-down.
“I think she’s off the grid. I respect that too,” the 62-year-old restauranteur said of Leviss. “People need to go away. It has been a lot, so maybe she just needed to literally retreat and get herself together.”
Sandoval and Raquel reportedly called it quits amid the backlash. Madix has since moved on with fitness trainer, Daniel Wai.
The ongoing fallout will likely be documented in Season 11 of Vanderpump Rules — which is expected to begin production in the coming months. Ariana has declared that she will not film with either Sandoval or Leviss and other various cast members have echoed the sentiment.
Baskin stated that he hoped that the cast will “find its way back together” when filming season kicks off.
“I think that all of that is going to sort itself out over the next several weeks. It’s hard to plan because we’re sort of subject to real-life forces. But one thing that I’ve seen is this cast is very resilient and they end up finding their way back together. It’s just sort of hard to see that at this point,” he explained.
He added — “Look, Tom and Ariana still live together. So even sort of just the logistics of that connect them.”
As reported — Ariana Madix moved out of the home she once shared with Tom Sandoval, on Monday. Page Six obtained photos of friends helping the reality star with the move in the driveway of the Valley Village, CA residence.
Ariana was later snapped moving into her new place, which is located 15 minutes from the farmhouse she shared with cover band frontman.
Vanderpump Rules airs Wednesdays at 9 pm ET on Bravo.
