Now that their secret’s out, Tom Sandoval and Raquel Leviss are committed to making their romance last for the long haul! That is if they can make it out of this mess unscathed…
It turns out the newly exposed lovebirds have no reservations about their relationship after their cheating scandal was unearthed just days ago, a source dished to Us Weekly on Tuesday:
“Tom and Raquel are the real deal.”
That’s gotta suck for Ariana Madix to hear! As you likely know by now, this scandal began last week when the 37-year-old TV personality discovered her then-boyfriend had been cheating on her with their Vanderpump Rules co-star when she found an inappropriate video and text messages on Tom’s phone. After nine years of dating, it was all over in the blink of an eye!

Sadly, it sounds like the TomTom co-owner checked out of the relationship a looong time ago, too. How do we know? Well, the insider is already throwing around the L word! They went on to insist this isn’t “a regrettable fling or one-night stand,” sharing:
“They have confided to pals that it’s love and they have fallen hard for each other.”
Love already?! While it seems fast, the pair have reportedly been dating/sneaking around for about six months, so it’s not actually that shocking to hear. We’re also not surprised to see their camps pushing the love story narrative. It obviously looks better for both their reputations if this is true love and not just some mistaken entanglement! Just sayin’. Doesn’t mean it looks GREAT. But looks better…

While the drama is still very fresh, the co-stars have plans to (finally) go more public with their romance — no matter what haters think:
“It’s no excuse for what they did and the people they hurt, but they see a long-term future together. Only time will tell if their bond can survive the backlash.”
A pretty big if… Controversy like this at the start of a relationship can be detrimental! Only time will tell how serious these two really are. In the meantime, their troubles are far from over! (Tom does have a pattern of cheating on his ladies, after all.)
Bravo has had their cameras rolling ever since the jaw-dropping affair allegations hit the internet, catching everything from the other cast’s reactions to an “emotionally charged” conversation between now-exes Ariana and Tom. There’s even buzz that some old cast members could return to hash out the drama on-screen! And all of this will be included in the latest season, so we won’t have to wait very long to see it all play out in even more detail! Tom and Raquel better buckle up for a bumpy ride!!
Reactions, Perezcious readers? Do you think these two will last or will the pressure cooker be too much for them to handle? Send us your predictions (below)!
