Raquel Leviss confirmed her split from her partner of 5-years, James Kennedy, in December of last year. However, Raquel has recently alleged that Oliver Saunders “misled” her before they went on a date together.
According to Page Six, the “Vanderpump Rules” star admitted that when she went out on a date with “Real Housewife” Garcelle Beauvais’ son at the beginning of September but she was unaware that he was married. “I would like to clarify that I did not know Oliver had a wife. He misled me,” she explained at BravoCon 2022 on Saturday.
“I was in Vegas this year just trying to have a good time being single, and we didn’t hook up either, by the way. Just wanted to clarify all that.”
Leviss revealed that she was getting ready to meet him for dinner when she learned about Saunders’ wife, Samantha Saunders. She even stated that Samantha was right to call Oliver out on Instagram for his “unacceptable” behavior.
“I was getting ready to go on a date with him when I found out he had a wife, so it completely changed the dynamic of the day and my mindset going into that.
It was a stressful day, stressful two days afterwards.”
During the filming of “Pump Rules” Season 10, Samantha alleged in a series of Instagram posts that her husband had “made out” with Leviss. She also criticized Oliver for intending “to continue to go on a date with Raquel” even after he was caught. “He has committed adultery with coworkers and guests of the restaurant,” claimed Samantha.
Eventually, Vanderpump intervened and even had a discussion with Beauvais about the situation. “I feel like Lisa just kind of wants to make sure she that she hears both sides of the story and fully understands,” Leviss told Page Six on Saturday.
“I feel like she might have talked to Garcelle and understood more of Oliver’s side, but I feel like I need to stand up for myself and hold my own because he put me in a situation that I didn’t want to be in and I didn’t ask for.”
Leviss got support from her co-star Scheana Shay as well. “I hate that she was put in that position. I think it was unfair that she was lied to and misled because now, forever, she will have that stamp on her,” Shay told PageSix at BravoCon. “She didn’t deserve that.” Stay tuned to Thirsty to get the latest updates.
