'Vanderpump Rules' Scheana Shay Denies Physically Assaulting Raquel Leviss, Explains Alleged Altercation

In response to Raquel Leviss’s allegations that she was physically abused over her relationship with Tom Sandoval, Scheana Shay of Vanderpump Rules is speaking out.

“This case was made up by a known liar and cheat who has lied to and cheated on everyone she cares about. Scheana never punched Raquel, full stop,” Scheana’s lawyer, Neama Rahmani, said in a statement to Us Weekly on Thursday, March 9.

“Those dark spots that people say are around her left eye have been there for months.” “Neither Scheana nor any of the other cast members want anything to do with Raquel going forward,” the statement said.

This caused the couple, who had been together for nine years, to break up. When word got out about the secret relationship, many of the Pump Rules stars, like Shay, came out to support Madix, who is 37.

“Every time I wake up in the morning, I know it wasn’t just a dream. “It’s true. #TeamAriana,” the “Good as Gold” singer wrote earlier this month on Twitter. In the middle of all the drama, there were stories that Shay and Leviss got into a fight after filming Watch What Happens Live With Andy Cohen on March 1 with both of them.

The host of the “Scheananigans with Scheana Shay” podcast kept quiet about the claimed assault at the time. She did, however, “like” a tweet on Monday, March 6, that talked about the fight.

“If what they say @scheana did after WWHL is true, she is the best friend you could ever ask for. The tweet said, “Everyone needs a friend like Scheana.” The Mega Firm The former Miss Sonoma County then filed an order of protection against Shay on Tuesday, March 7.

She said that Shay beat her after finding out about her affair with the cofounder of TomTom.

“[Scheana] pushed me against a brick wall, hurting the back of my head, and punched me in the face, hurting my left eye,” Leviss said in the court statement, adding that she had a “black eye and cut with a scar on the left eyebrow, blurred vision, and swelling to the left eye.”

MEGA Jackson Lee In addition to filing a lawsuit against Shay, Leviss sent a letter earlier this week to several of her Pump Rules co-stars asking them to delete a sexual FaceTime video of her and Sandoval.

The legal notice said that the clip was taped “illegally” and “without permission” by the Sonoma State University graduate. She said that sending the tape to someone else is against the law in California.

Lisa Vanderpump, who used to be Shay and Leviss’s boss at SUR, talked about the fight reports on WWHL on Wednesday. “I think she did, yes. When host Andy Cohen asked Vanderpump, 62, if Shay hit Leviss, she said, “I think she slapped her around the chops.”


“But you know what, she has a lot of feelings because Ariana was her best friend for about 12 years.” Stassi Schroeder, a former co-star on Pump Rules, said on her podcast “Straight Up With Stassi” on Wednesday that she “will not confirm nor deny” the claims.
