A massive cheating scandal recently rocked the reality show.
Since its debut in 2013, Vanderpump Rules has attracted millions of viewers with its behind-the-scenes look at the lives of employees at Lisa Vanderpump's luxury restaurants.
While the show has largely maintained a professional tone, fans have recently become concerned about the personal lives of some of the show's characters. Specifically, a scandal involving Tom Sandoval and Raquel Leviss has sparked widespread speculation and concern among viewers.
Fans of Vanderpump Rules were stunned by the news that Tom Sandoval had cheated on his girlfriend of 9 years, Ariana Madix, with Raquel Leviss.
The couple had always been considered one of the strongest on the show, making the revelation all the more shocking. After Ariana dumped Tom and Raquel issued a public apology, it seemed as though things would go back to normal. However, Lala Kent believes Tom and Raquel are beyond saving.
During a recent episode of her podcast, Lala Kent shared her thoughts on the situation and its impact on the future of Vanderpump Rules. According to Lala, Tom and Raquel will have to leave the show as their actions not only caused a lot of pain and suffering to Ariana but also damaged the show's reputation.
Lala didn't hold back when it came to sharing her thoughts on Raquel.
Lala said that she had always found Raquel's behaviour on the show questionable, noting that Raquel's desperation to become a reality TV star had made her willing to throw other people under the bus to get ahead. Lala went on to call Raquel a narcissist and described her actions as disgusting. In Lala's view, Raquel likely slept with Tom on purpose, possibly even hoping to gain some publicity in the scandal's aftermath.
Most fans agree, calling Raquel one of the most hated contestants on the show.
Quite a few fans also believe that Ariana dumping Tom was the best thing that could have happened to her, as her relationship with him sapped all joy out of her. Ariana's still dealing with the fallout from the scandal and has so far been keeping quiet about it, but when she decides to go public, her colleagues and fans will certainly be on her side.
