Reality TV star Paige DeSorbo, known for her appearance on “Summer House,” has accused Raquel Leviss of making moves on her boyfriend, Craig Conover, during Hannah Berner’s wedding in May 2022. DeSorbo revealed the alleged interaction during her “Giggly Squad” podcast live show in Chicago, where she explained how she saw Leviss walk over to Conover at the bar after leaving the dance floor.
DeSorbo expressed her distrust of Leviss, who had already been dating Tom Sandoval at the time. Leviss and DeSorbo had attended the wedding as guests and had developed a friendship in the following months. However, Leviss’s affair with Sandoval was later exposed, causing a rift between her and her former friends.
Paige DeSorbo caught ‘bitch’ Raquel Leviss making beeline for Craig Conover
The affair has been dubbed “Scandoval,” and the explosive Season 10 reunion aired recently. DeSorbo and Berner’s popular podcast “Giggly Squad” releases episodes weekly and is set to tour again in the fall. Fans can catch more “Scandoval” drama on the “Vanderpump Rules: Secrets Revealed” episode on Bravo.
“Summer House” star Paige DeSorbo says Raquel Leviss appeared to make moves on her boyfriend, Craig Conover, months before the “Vanderpump Rules” star began her affair with Tom Sandoval.
DeSorbo and Leviss were both at Hannah Berner’s May 2022 wedding when the alleged interaction occurred.
“I literally survey the whole f–king room, I clock Craig at the bar, and I watch Raquel leave the dance floor and walk over to Craig,” DeSorbo said Saturday during her “Giggly Squad” podcast (via TikTok) live show in Chicago.
The crowd immediately screamed and booed Leviss for seemingly trying to flirt with Conover – who’s been dating DeSorbo since fall 2021.
“I know! And I’m standing there, and I turn to literally everyone around me, and I was like, ‘I don’t trust this bitch, I do not trust her,’ and everyone was like, ‘Oh my God, no, she’s so sweet, and she would never,’ and I f–king knew it,” DeSorbo, 30, emphasized.
Berner, who co-hosts the “Giggly Squad” podcast, chimed in that at the time, she recalled her wedding guests telling her, “Rachel [Leviss’ legal name] is so sweet.”
“I mean she’s always been very nice to us,” DeSorbo, 30, added before Berner, 31, clarified she was more like “a hurt bird.”
Leviss’ rep didn’t immediately return TheFantasyTimes’s request for comment.
Leviss, 28, attended Berner’s nuptials to Des Bishop last year as former flame “Shahs of Sunset” star Nema Vand’s plus one, and the ladies developed a friendship in the following months – even attending the Life Is Beautiful Festival together along with Scheana Shay in September.
At the time of the September hangout, Leviss was already entangled in a months-long affair with Sandoval, 40, despite him being in a nine-year relationship with her close friend and fellow “Vanderpump Rules” co-star, Ariana Madix.
The affair – dubbed Scandoval – blew up when Madix discovered the secret relationship upon seeing a sexually explicit video of Leviss on Sandoval’s phone on March 1.
Scandoval only continued to escalate over the last few months, with Leviss and Sandoval both having to face their former friends at the explosive Season 10 reunion which concluded airing last Wednesday.
Leviss initially faced backlash for appearing blank-faced and emotionless while talking with Madix, 37, but she’s since received some understanding after she got emotional while spilling more intimate details from her dalliance.

Madix herself even changed her formerly angry attitude to a more soft approach and acknowledged that Leviss felt bad about the betrayal.
Co-star Lala Kent – who went after Sandoval and Leviss in the press and at the reunion – admitted she’s feeling more “empathetic” towards Leviss and would be willing to film with her next season depending on casting decisions.
“I just want her to do what’s best for her, whether it’s on the show or not on the show,” Kent told TMZ last week.
Meanwhile, fans can catch more Scandoval in the “Vanderpump Rules: Secrets Revealed” episode Wednesday at 9 p.m. ET on Bravo.
