Vanderpump Rules Season 11 is now filming, and if there’s one question fans want an answer right now, that is if Raquel Leviss will return to the show after the explosive Scandoval broke in March. But if Jax Taylor, Tom Sandoval’s former buddy and Vanderpump Rules star, is to decide, Raquel should never return to the show.
Scandoval shook the Bravoverse after Raquel’s affair with Sandoval made it to the headlines while the latter was still in a relationship with Ariana Madix. The affair resulted in Tom and Ariana’s split, ending their nine-year relationship.
Jax Taylor on Whether Raquel Leviss Will Return to Vanderpump Rules Season 11
In an interview with Us Weekly, Jax believed Raquell should never return to VPR. “No, absolutely not. No … There’s nothing healthy about reality TV for anybody,” he said.
As a reality series star, the 44-year-old sees the reality series world as sometimes a “very toxic place,” and its cast should “need to have thick skin.”
“In my opinion, I think [Raquel] dove into something that was a little bit bigger than her. I don’t think she’s mentally tough enough to be in something like this,” he explained.
However, it looks like Jax doesn’t personally know Raquell, as he revealed he has only spoken to her twice. Despite that, he still wishes “the best for her,” and he seems not to care about the onscreen drama, adding that he doesn’t “feel bad” for any cast members.
Jax furthered that they all stepped together in the game of reality TV shows. Hence, they all know what they’re doing and “signed on the dotted line,” making him not feel bad for anybody.
“This is what you signed up for. Now you gotta own it,” he continued.
Will Raquel Leviss Return to Vanderpump Rules Season 11?
Though there are no official words yet if Raquel will return to Vanderpump Rules Season 11, sources claimed that she’s now in talks to return to the series after its filming resumed earlier this month. According to TMZ, the controversial star is now negotiating with Bravo for a deal to return to the series’ new season.
However, insiders told the outlet that the talks weren’t smooth as there were alleged “complications” in sealing the deal.
Hence, fans have to wait and see for an official announcement or a big surprise that Raquell will return to the show. Currently, the 28-year-old is at a facility to receive mental health treatment.
