BravoCon 2022: Raquel Leviss and Tom Schwartz avoid rumors of love

The reality TV world was shocked when Tom Schwartz and Katie Maloney got divorced. If these two crazy kids didn’t make it, what chance was there for Hollywood’s other fame-seeking sweethearts? Schwartz and Maloney’s split seemed to cause a rift in the Vanderpump cast as they took different sides. However, it seems that Raquel Leviss was firmly #TeamTom.

Maloney quickly proved that she was moving away from Schwartz in a big way. The pair have been involved in a toxic and codependent relationship since Season 1 of Vanderpump Rules, with plenty of breakups and make-ups. But Maloney made it clear there was no chance of reconciliation this time. Meanwhile, Schwartz had reportedly gone back to his old ways and was using SUR as his personal Tinder. “Yes my heart aches but I will be alright,” he wrote in an emotionally charged Instagram post in March 2022. “I don’t want to arouse sympathy here.” That’s a good thing, because Maloney didn’t have any for him. Not only did she initiate the breakup, but she immediately put her house up for sale. Maloney posted a picture of the recently sold bare lot in June 2022. “I will miss coming home,” she wrote.

“I love you, boy,” Schwartz finished his post. “Forever and ever you will be in my heart.” However, time is clearly subjective in the SUR world, as Schwartz was reportedly looking like a bandit with Leviss just months later. When Leviss and Schwartz were asked to serve the Dalliance dish during BravoCon 2022, they sidestepped the love rumors entirely.

Raquel Leviss and Tom Schwartz reportedly made it in Mexico

Despite the many tears, tantrums and shock exits at SUR, there was always one constant – the bromance of the toms. Tom Sandoval and Tom Schwartz’s friendship has weathered many storms along the way and survived to tell the many stories, well, usually at least. Sandoval and Schwartz were unusually shy when asked to spread the romance rumors about Schwartz and Raquel Leviss — as did they, unsurprisingly.

According to a reporter from The List, during the “Vanderpump Rules” panel at BravoCon: 2022, colleagues walked around questions about alleged connections. Leviss simply told reporters, “I’m single and living my life.” As both Scheana Shay and Sandoval have said, Leviss was clearly the cast member with the juiciest storyline of the next season. Per People, Leviss called off her engagement to James Kennedy in January. Meanwhile, Schwartz was single after his divorce from Katie Maloney and ready to mingle.

When the stripped beauties clashed at Shay’s wedding in Mexico, there was reportedly plenty of love under the scorching sun. And apparently Leviss has no regrets about breaking the girl code. “She has no regrets,” a source told Us Weekly. “Kati is the one [who left Schwartz]. Whatever he does with another girl is none of her business.” Meanwhile, when asked by a fan, “Why would you make out with a castmate at a wedding in Mexico?” Schwartz kept it cool, but made mouth and gesture to “write me.”
