It looks like Scandoval isn't over yet. With the new season of Vanderpump Rules opening immediately after the explosive drama that followed the cheating scandal Tom Sandoval, his then-girlfriend Ariana Madix, and the other half of his affair, Rachel (then Raquel) Leviss found themselves in, people are talking about the drama all over again. And it's not just the remaining Vanderpump Rules stars that are talking -- Rachel Leviss is releasing a podcast sharing her side of the story, even though she's not coming back to the show.

Unfortunately for her, it looks like not everyone is excited to hear her side of the Scandoval story. Social media users have been sharing their mixed feelings on the announcement and now, Vanderpump Rules star Scheana Shay has spoken up -- and she's got some harsh words for Rachel!

While Rachel Leviss is set to launch her podcast in January 2024, the same month that Vanderpump Rules returns for another season, fans will know that Scheana Shay already has one of her own, called Scheananigans. During a recent episode of her own podcast, Scheana spoke about what she thinks about Rachel Goes Rogue before its release.

According to Scheana, there's just not enough for Rachel to talk about that she needed an entire podcast. The reality star and current podcast host questioned the need for a full series by saying, "What is episode 10 of ‘Rachel Goes Rogue’ going to be about?"

But, the fact that she doesn't have more than a single episode worth of content isn't the only criticism that Scheana Shay lodged against Rachel Leviss. According to her, the whole podcast is "fully staged" and she wants a video version of the recording sessions released to prove that Rachel Leviss is speaking from the heart on what happened between her, Tom Sandoval, Ariana Madix, and the rest of the cast.

"I would love to see a video portion of the podcast. Instead of it not being only audio because that’s how you know it’s fully scripted." Scheana Shay said on her own podcast while speaking about Rachel Leviss' upcoming project. Although the teaser promised Rachel Leviss opening up in her own words and sharing the behind-the-scenes truth of the Scandoval cheating scandal, Scheana Shay just isn't buying it.

She went on to say, "I would like to see more — I mean not that I’m going to watch or listen at all — but if she’s going to do this then don’t just be reading a script behind a mic. Show your face."

Only time will tell if Scheana will keep her promise and not listen to Rachel Goes Rogue when it's released. As for Rachel, she has stayed silent on the drama since seeking treatment at a mental health facility. With the release of her podcast and so much of the upcoming season being about drama she was involved in, fans will have to wait and see if she breaks her silence and responds to cast members like Scheana Shay or if she focuses on her podcast instead.
