Raquel Leviss claims Tom Sandoval recorded her ‘intimate’ FaceTime video ‘without consent’

Raquel Leviss reaffirmed her claim that Tom Sandoval secretly recorded a explicit video of her without her consent before their affair was exposed. Leviss opened up about the incident during her first post-reunion interview on Bethenny Frankel’s podcast, “Just B with Bethenny Frankel.” She recounted the story of the now-infamous video that led to Sandoval’s then-girlfriend, Ariana Madix, discovering their involvement.

During the interview, Leviss confirmed that she was engaging in a FaceTime session with Sandoval while she was in New York and he was in Los Angeles. Unbeknownst to her, Sandoval was secretly recording the call. Leviss explained that they had a lot of FaceTime conversations, but this particular one took a more intimate turn. She expected privacy during the call and was not aware she was being recorded.

Leviss only discovered that Sandoval had recorded the session when Madix sent her two screen recorded videos along with a text message saying, “you’re dead to me.” This revelation left Leviss shocked and overwhelmed with emotions. She admitted feeling scared that the video would be leaked and felt compelled to confess the truth about her affair to Madix, who had been Sandoval’s partner for almost ten years.

When asked about the explicit nature of the video, Leviss stated that it was something she would never want her grandmother to see. After news of their affair broke, Leviss sent cease and desist letters to her former friends, demanding they delete the video as it was filmed illegally without her knowledge or consent. However, it appears that the video has still circulated among some individuals, including Madix’s friends who have described it online. Leviss suspects that Madix may have sent it to other people as well.

Leviss also confirmed that other people have told her that they have seen the video. Sandoval has not yet addressed Leviss’ claims. Madix discovered the betrayal when Sandoval’s phone accidentally fell out of his pocket during a performance with his band. She ended their relationship, and the fallout from the scandal continues to unfold both on and off-screen. The cast is currently filming Season 11 of “Vanderpump Rules,” but Leviss has not yet participated.

Raquel Leviss doubled down on her claim that Tom Sandoval recorded a NSFW video of her without her consent prior to their months-long affair being exposed.

Leviss sat down for her first post-reunion tell-all on Bethenny Frankel’s podcast, “Just B with Bethenny Frankel,” on Wednesday, where she shared her side of the story with the now-infamous video that ultimately led to Sandoval’s then-girlfriend, Ariana Madix, finding out about their dalliance.

“So you’re FaceTiming Tom, you’re in New York and Tom is in LA and you’re masterbating, and he’s recording you, and you don’t know you’re being recorded?” Frankel asked.

“Correct,” Leviss quickly replied.

The former “Vanderpump Rules” star, 28, explained that she was in the Big Apple doing press for Season 10 of the show when she decided to FaceTime Sandoval on March 1.


“I decided to be adventurous and look at the adult section on the TV, and Tom and I FaceTimed a lot, so it turned into something more of an intimate FaceTime. I expected to have privacy in that moment, so that happened,” she recalled.

“I expected to have privacy in that moment,” Leviss explained.

Leviss claimed that she had no idea Sandoval, 41, was recording the session until Madix, 38, found it on his phone later that same night and sent her the videos.

“I get a text from Ariana sending me two screen recorded videos and a text that said, ‘you’re dead to me,’ and that’s how I knew that she knew,” she continued. “And then also that’s how I found out I had been recorded without my consent, so of course all of these emotions came flooding over me.”

The former beauty pageant contestant remembered feeling “scared” that the video was “going to be leaked,” so she “felt pressured in that moment” to tell Madix the truth about her affair with Madix’s partner of nearly a decade.

The reality TV star recalled finding out Sandoval had recorded the FaceTime when Madix sent them to her later that night.

When asked how “graphic” the video was, Leviss quipped that “it’s not something that I would ever want my grandma to see.”

Shortly after news of their affair – aka Scandoval – made headlines two days later, Leviss sent out cease and desist letters to several of her former friends demanding they delete it, since she claimed it was filmed “illegally without [her] knowledge or consent.”

However, the legal notice may not have scared everyone, since Leviss said, “It seems to be that a lot of people have seen it” since the letter.

“Some of Ariana’s friends have described the video in great detail online, and she also sent it to me, so I don’t know who else she sent it to. I wouldn’t be surprised if she sent it to other people, but it’s not legal,” she added.

Sandoval has yet to address Leviss’ claims.

Leviss also confirmed that “other people” have straight-up told her they have “seen” the video.

Sandoval’s rep didn’t immediately return TheFantasyTimes’s request for comment.

As TheFantasyTimes previously reported, Madix discovered the betrayal when Sandoval’s phone fell out of his pocket while he was performing a show with his band, Tom Sandoval & The Most Extras.

Madix subsequently dumped him and Scandoval has continued to play out on- and off-screen ever since. The cast is currently filming Season 11 of “Vanderpump Rules,” though Leviss has yet to take part in any setting.
