Reality TV stars Lala Kent and Katie Maloney have criticized Raquel Leviss over her alleged PR strategy following her high-profile cheating scandal with Tom Sandoval. In a video posted to her Instagram Story, Kent claimed that Leviss’ PR team was trying to make her out to be a victim by leaning into the idea that she is not intelligent. Meanwhile, Maloney posted a screenshot of the reported PR strategy on her Instagram Story, labeling it as “more nefarious behavior.”
Kent also revealed that she had created the persona that the crisis PR team was now trying to get Leviss to embody. She added that she would be sending an invoice to Leviss and demanded that she get a cut of whatever the reality star was paying her PR team. Maloney, for her part, posted a screenshot of the reported PR strategy, agreeing with Kent’s assessment that it was a questionable tactic.
Leviss had been involved in a cheating scandal with Sandoval that resulted in his split from long-time girlfriend Ariana Madix. Madix has yet to publicly comment on the breakup, but Kent said on Friday that her friend had given her “consent” to “torch” Leviss and Sandoval. The TomTom co-owner, meanwhile, issued an apology via Instagram, stating that he fully understood and deserved the anger and disappointment directed towards him but asking fans to leave Schwartz, his business partner, out of it.
Sandoval went on to say that he planned to take a leave of absence from the business and that he wasn’t yet ready to address the specifics of what had happened with Madix and Leviss. The restaurant’s official Instagram page also issued a statement, asking fans to remember that negative reviews hurt not just Sandoval but also the livelihood of several others involved in the business.
