Liar, liar, sequin pants on fire.

Tom Sandoval vehemently denied ever being physical with Raquel Leviss in the midst of their months-long affair on Wednesday’s episode of “Vanderpump Rules.”

“Has anything physical ever happened between you and Raquel?” a producer asked the bar owner during his confession.

“No, nothing has happened between Raquel and I,” Sandoval replied as his straight face turned into a slight smirk. “Like, nothing that wouldn’t happen between you know like, me and Katie [Maloney].”


Sandoval’s response came after several members of his friend group questioned why he was previously spotted hanging out with Leviss, 28, by himself at a bar called The Abbey.

James Kennedy’s girlfriend, Ally Lewber, originally saw the “weird” interaction — sans his then-girlfriend, Ariana Madix — and told Maloney, who in turn questioned Sandoval about the outing.

“It’s annoying Katie would say something like that,” Sandoval, 40, said in another confessional. “It’s insulting to not just me but Ariana as well.”

He denied “dancing all close” with Leviss in a “dark corner” of the bar and instead insisted that it was “a bunch of us” who went to the bar and “two of those people happened to be Raquel and I.”

Elsewhere in the episode, Sandoval — who had already shared at least one “magnetic” kiss with Leviss at the time — dubbed the allegations “funny” when a distraught Scheana Shay told him Maloney said that “Raquel’s now going after Sandoval.”

“At the f–king Abbey? We know everybody there. It’s not a place where I would take a secret f–king rendezvous,” he said at the time.


Maloney later defended herself after her words got twisted that Madix, 37, and Sandoval were in an “open relationship,” explaining that she meant the duo “don’t have rules for each other in their relationship.”

“I guess what I’m trying to say is that if Tom and Ariana do have an open relationship, Ariana knows nothing about it,” Maloney said in a confessional, adding that Sandoval is “very manipulative.”

Despite Sandoval’s several denials, Maloney, 36, and Lewber’s observations proved to be true.

Madix discovered that her partner of nearly 10 years was having an affair with one of her closest friends on March 1 and subsequently dumped him.


The aftermath of the dalliance — since dubbed Scandoval — has continued to play out both on-screen and off-screen and will culminate in the “nuclear” Season 10 reunion, which was filmed on March 23.

“Let me tell you something — I didn’t leave with any bruises, but I was called into action,” host Andy Cohen previously teased to Page Six.

“Vanderpump Rules” airs Wednesdays at 9 p.m. ET on Bravo.
