Bravo’s “Vanderpump Rules” Star Raquel Leviss just recently sat down with “Real Housewives Of New York” Star Bethenny in a tell all interview and fans are speculating that she was fired from the series!
During the interview, Leviss accepted responsibility for her actions and says she chose to talk to Frankel because she’s “a forced to be reckoned with.”
“I just heard what you were saying on TikTok and using my case as an example of exploitation and the way that the network is running to the bank — like laughing, running to the bank with this scandal and I haven’t seen a single penny. I feel like it’s not fair and I feel like a toddler saying, ‘It’s not fair,’ but it really isn’t.
And I feel like I’ve been portrayed as the ultimate villain. My mistakes, that I’ve made on camera, live on forever. And you mentioned the addiction of doing reality TV and the way they always dangle that carrot in front of you telling you, ‘You need to tell your side of the story, otherwise it’s going to be written for you.’ And that’s terrifying. So, I almost went back just because of that.
I was not thinking long-term. I was completely wrapped up in heartbreak and wanting to get certain needs met. Looking back now I can see that I was still healing from a relationship from somebody who I thought I was going to marry and in ending that, I still haven’t healed yet.
When I was filming, I was drinking a lot to ease that anxiety. In a reality TV environment, I wasn’t getting that safe space for me to express my emotions in a healthy way.”
The last we’ve heard about Raquel’s “Vanderpump Rules” involvement, she was in the negotiation stage. Looks like the negotiations ended.
