Scheana Shay’s lawyer has revealed that the reality star was “devastated” after being served with a temporary restraining order by former friend Raquel Leviss. The order was filed after Shay was alleged to have punched Leviss following news of her affair with Tom Sandoval, which reportedly led to Sandoval’s split from Ariana Madix. The situation is also causing issues with filming for season 10 of Vanderpump Rules, including the upcoming reunion show.
Scheana Shay was left “devastated” after being served with a temporary restraining order by Raquel Leviss, whom she considered a dear friend, following Leviss’ affair with Tom Sandoval, resulting in a rumored altercation and legal action.
Scheana Shay, former Vanderpump Rules cast member, was deeply upset when she was served with a temporary restraining order by her friend and castmate, Raquel Leviss. According to Shay’s lawyer, Neama Rahmani, she considered Leviss a dear friend and felt betrayed by her after hearing about her affair with Tom Sandoval. Reports say Shay punched Leviss after learning about the fling, leading the latter to file for the restraining order.
Shay’s camp issued a statement denying the allegations, saying they were fabricated by a known liar and cheat who betrayed those close to her. They claim that the supposed dark marks around Leviss’s eye were present for months and that Shay never punched her. The statement also said that neither Shay nor other cast members wished to have anything to do with Leviss in the future.
As the case moves forward, Shay is still coming to terms with her emotions towards Leviss, according to Rahmani. She is fighting the allegations and intends to litigate the restraining order issue to show the truth to the court and the world. The restraining order is also affecting the show, as it means Shay and Leviss can’t be in the same place at the same time, making the upcoming reunion show difficult to handle.
The restraining order has become a major storyline in season 10 of Vanderpump Rules. It is not clear whether the order will become permanent or be dropped entirely after the March 29 hearing. Shay’s lawyer has expressed confidence that they will win the case, but it remains to be seen how the situation will play out. The incident has highlighted the complicated relationships between cast members and the impact of personal drama on the show.
