The bomb(shell) has dropped.

During the highly anticipated third part of the “Vanderpump Rules” Season 10 reunion, Raquel Leviss spilled it all in a bombshell one-on-one interview with a producer.

After being grilled by her co-stars, Leviss clarified some of the lies that Sandoval actually told about their affair, including their “one-night stand” in early August, six days after the reunion was filmed. In fact, she confessed that they actually hooked up “multiple” times at co-star Scheana Shay’s wedding in late August.

“The second time was actually during Mexico,” Leviss said.

“He was drunk and trying to find his room, and I heard him talking in the hallway and there was somebody working there, and he was asking which direction the elevator was, and I was like wait just come inside.”

When asked if they had sex “multiple times” during the wedding getaway – where Sandoval’s then-girlfriend Ariana Madix was present – she said “yeah.”

Leviss also fessed up to hooking up with Sandoval at his shared home with Madix while she was out of town for her grandma’s funeral – even though he vehemently denied doing so during the reunion taping prior to her one-on-one interview.

“That’s the one story that we’ve agreed on getting straight, and I know that the reason why Tom wanted to lie about is because it’s a really bad look to hookup with someone’s boyfriend in their own house when they’ve gone out of a town especially for a funeral of all things,” Leviss said while sobbing.

Leviss divulged that at one point during her months-long affair with Sandoval, she asked him if Madix would be open to a “throuple.”

“I mean I even suggested maybe like, ‘What would Ariana think about like having me as an addition?’ And he was like, ‘No no no she would not be into that,’” Leviss claimed.

A producer asked if she was referring to a “throuple,” to which she confirmed with “yeah.”

“I love Ariana as a person and then also I’m in love with Tom Sandoval, so yeah it didn’t seem that far fetched of an idea, but it was not something in question. God he’s gonna kill me I just hate lying so much,” Leviss confessed.

Elsewhere in the bombshell reunion, Leviss and Sandoval shared that they were “in love” with each other and that the former got a lightning bolt necklace to match his existing one and symbolize their love.

Cast member James Kennedy previously promised fans that the big Scandoval reveal — which occurred during the last five minutes of Wednesday night’s episode — would shock fans.

“Guys. If you think it’s been a wild ride thus far. Strap your bloody seatbelts. The madness begins tomorrow,” the DJ, 31, captioned a video shared via Instagram earlier Wednesday.

“This is not a drill. Get. Ready.”

Kennedy went on to say that the information would likely reinvigorate viewers who were growing tired of the nonstop “Pump Rules” news cycle.

“Let me just tell you, like, if you were thinking that you’re over it, right, or you’re ready to forgive anyone,” he teased, “and I swear, you’re gonna get shot back to square one, OK?”

Kennedy’s comments prompted fans to flood his comments section with predictions, with many theorizing that Tom Sandoval’s affair with Raquel Leviss began earlier than previously relayed.

“I think this proves the affair went on for longer than we thought. Nothing about Lisa [Vanderpump] leaving etc.,” one person speculated, referring to how Sandoval, 40, cheated on now-ex Ariana Madix with Kennedy’s ex-fiancée Leviss, 28.

“I think the scandoval started when you and Rachel were engaged,” another person guessed.

Prior to Wednesday’s explosive finale, “Vanderpump Rules” executive producer Alex Baskin told the Hollywood Reporter that the revelation came a “few days” after the reunion wrapped filming on March 23.

“There is, as we’ve been teasing, a twist at the end of the reunion. So I think it’s the perfect capper to a season unlike any other,” he said in an interview published Tuesday.

“We wind down the day of [filming the reunion] and then a few days later, there’s yet another development. I’ll just say this isn’t a garden-variety getting-the-group-together-to-recap show or, in this case, just Raquel speaking her piece of apologies to Ariana. There are revelations and developments that left even our heads spinning.”

Raquel Leviss
Leviss’ affair with Sandoval began last year.

Sandoval’s infidelity came to light in March when Madix, 37, discovered a sexually explicit video of Leviss on his phone. She then dumped him, and the aftermath of their breakup was captured by Bravo cameras and has been covered extensively in the press.

Sandoval and Madix still live together in their shared $2 million California home, though the Something About Her co-founder has asserted they “do not interact on any level.”

While the status of Sandoval and Leviss’ relationship appears in flux after a source told Page Six the former pageant queen “dipped out” on the cover band frontman, Madix has moved on with fitness pro Daniel Wai.
