• Tom Sandoval revealed that he fought hard for Rachel “Raquel” Leviss and made several sacrifices for her, including quitting alcohol and cigarettes
• Sandoval and ex Ariana Madix were still living together despite their bitter breakup, but have recently taken a step towards separating for good

Here is what happened:
Tom Sandoval recently opened up about his devastation over his breakup with Rachel “Raquel” Leviss, revealing that he fought hard for her. During an episode of the Two T’s in a Pod podcast, he expressed how deeply he cared for her, saying, “I fought so hard for Rachel.” Sandoval was even willing to make significant lifestyle changes in order to support her during a difficult time in her life. However, despite his efforts, Leviss ultimately cut him out of her life and moved away.
This breakup comes after the end of Sandoval’s decade-long relationship with ex Ariana Madix, which was brought to an end by Leviss’ affair. Although Sandoval and Madix were still living together in their LA home after their bitter breakup, they have recently taken steps towards separating for good, with Sandoval revealing that they don’t talk and have a go-between, such as his assistant or a friend, for communication.
The new season of Vanderpump Rules, set to premiere in January 2024 on Bravo, will detail the aftermath of this drama, including how the cast members are navigating their personal and professional lives. The show will also feature new developments, such as the opening of Ariana Madix and Katie Maloney’s new West Hollywood sandwich shop, and Lisa Vanderpump’s new club in Lake Tahoe. Additionally, Sandoval and Madix were recently spotted filming together, while Raquel Leviss has confirmed she will not be returning for the new season.
