Who will attend the Vanderpump Rules reunion?
On March 22, 2023, 28-year-old Raquel Leviss — who was born Rachel — informed E! News that she will be present at the Vanderpump Rules season ten reunion taping.
The TV personality told the outlet: “Yes, I will be attending the reunion in person.”
On March 17, Scheana Shay, 37, announced on her Scheananigans podcast that she plans on attending the reunion.
She said: “As far as I know, I’m fully intending on being there in person.”
The reality star added: “I have no say over how this logistically works out.”
The stars’ announcements come after Leviss was granted a temporary restraining order against Shay following a physical disagreement between the two.
E! News reported that on March 8, 2023, Leviss acquired a TRO after claiming Shay punched her in the face on March 2, which caused a “black eye and cut/scar to left eyebrow, blurred vision & swelling to left eye.”
However, Shay has denied the claims.
On March 9, her lawyer Neama Rahmani said in a statement to E! News: “This case is a fabrication by a known liar and a cheat who has betrayed everyone close to her.
“Scheana never punched Rachel, period.”
The alleged altercation took place after the revelation that co-star Tom Sandoval, 39, cheated on 37-year-old Ariana Madix — his girlfriend of nine years — with Leviss.
Due to legal reasons, it is unclear how both Leviss and Shay will attend the reunion.
As People reported, the lawsuit — which was granted by the Los Angeles Superior Court — forbids Shay from being within 100 yards of Leviss.
Rahmani told the publication: “So they can’t both be physically present at the reunion.
“Rachel not only betrayed her friends, but she has sabotaged this reunion because it just can’t happen in any meaningful way while this order is in place.”
She added: “Potentially, one of them could Zoom in and appear virtually but Scheana still can’t communicate with Rachel either directly or through an intermediary.”
As E! News noted, Sandoval has yet to confirm if he will be at the reunion taping in person.
However, Us Weekly reported that Sandoval is “expected to participate” in the reunion, along with Leviss, Shay, Madix, Lisa Vanderpump, Katie Maloney, Tom Schwartz, James Kennedy, Lala Kent, Charli Burnett, and Brock Davies.

Andy Cohen will host the TV special.
While the program’s premiere date has yet to be announced, Bustle speculates that it will air sometime between mid to late May 2023.
While both Leviss and Sandoval have posted public apologies for their affair via Instagram, it does not seem that this will be enough to stop the backlash from brewing during the reunion.
As Us Weekly discussed, Lisa Vanderpump spoke about the scandal during a March 8 appearance on Watch What Happens Live with Andy Cohen.
The businesswoman and TV star said: “We will have a much better understanding when we get through the reunion. But I think it is going to be really tough. I don’t think it is going to be the same reunion where there are these accusations flying because they admitted to it.
“I think it is going to be difficult. … This is huge. This is breaking up a couple that has been together for [nearly 10] years and the deceit. [Raquel] acted like a wolf in sheep’s clothing.”
