Was Tom Schwartz a decoy?
Earlier this month, news broke about Raquel Leviss’ months-long affair with Tom Sandoval. Ariana Madix dumped him after she found out he was cheating on her with their co-star. The reason why this is such a big deal is that Ariana was such a good friend to Raquel. The three of them were so close, as seen on the show.
Raquel and Sandoval hooked up in his Valley Village home, which he shares with Ariana. Most of their affairs took place in that home or on the road. Sandoval would tour with his cover band, Tom Sandoval & The Most Extras. Fans noticed that Raquel would follow him for much of his tour.
There’s damning evidence of an affair between the two. However, in Season 10 of Pump Rules, Raquel is ready to take someone else’s man — or former man. She said she had a “crush” on Katie Maloney’s ex-husband Tom Schwartz. The two were in the middle of a divorce at the time.
Schwartz and Raquel made out on numerous occasions. Those moments will take place throughout the season. Some fans wondered if Sandoval used Schwartz as a decoy to cover up his affair with Raquel. He even encouraged his best friend to make out with her.
