Tom Sandoval and Raquel Leviss apparently couldn’t hide their feelings for one another during Scheana Shay and Brock Davies’ Mexico wedding.
The two “Vanderpump Rules” cast members were seemingly caught sharing a kiss when “nobody was around” by Shay’s wedding dress designers, Patrik Simpson and Pol’ Atteu, right after the ceremony.
“I get off the elevator and I see Tom Sandoval and Raquel Leviss kissing off to the side,” Simpson told Jeff Lewis on Thursday’s episode of Sirius XM’s “Jeff Lewis Live.”
He also noted that some of the show’s producers were also “off to the side” but isn’t sure if they saw the steamy moment.
Simpson then admitted that he could “never tell [Tom Sandoval and Tom Schwartz] apart,” making it difficult to discern which of the best friends Leviss had kissed until Scandoval broke in early March.
Reps for Leviss, Sandoval and Shay did not immediately respond to Page Six’s request for comment.

During the interview, the two designers also claimed that the kiss between Leviss and Tom Schwartz, which had happened the previous night, “was fake” because show producers asked them to move out of the way so that they could capture the moment on camera.
“We knew it was fake because hello, we got kicked out of our seat,” Atteu noted, adding that he never liked Leviss when he met her because she was never “engaged” and was “very removed” from what they were doing.
He added that even when he got to know her on a more personal level, he still didn’t like her, saying, “Her motives were so skewed that when you’re in it, you’re not going to see it.”
By the time news of Scandoval broke in March 2023, Sandoval and Leviss had been having an affair since July 2022, one month before the wedding.
After Ariana Madix found a sexually explicit video of the former beauty queen on Sandoval’s cellphone on March 1, she promptly dumped him. They had been dating for almost a decade.
However, Sandoval later claimed that he had broken up with Madix two weeks before she found the video but that she had been in denial.
Following the news, heated exchanges came from all sides of the “VPR” cast — including Shay, who at one point defended Leviss before later allegedly punching the pageant queen.
After both she and Sandoval apologized for their actions, Leviss has since checked herself into a mental facility for “mental health and trauma therapy.”
“Raquel and her family decided months before the relationship was discovered that she needed mental health treatment and ultimately decided she would enter a voluntary facility for mental health counseling,” Leviss’ rep told Page Six.
