Even when the cameras are off Vanderpump Rules, the drama continues to play out online as the Scandoval affair plot contains some pretty obvious plot holes. As for how Tom Sandoval and Raquel Leviss’ affair began, the now-scorned reality TV stars claim their connection was formed after a guys’ night out mid-season. Just a few episodes later, the cast traveled to Mexico for Scheana’s wedding, where the affair then took off but remained secret until March 2023, when their deception was finally exposed. During the taping of the reunion, Raquel finally admitted to lying for Tom throughout this ordeal.
Raquel’s recent confession and a certain story arc being called back for questioning has caused many viewers and cast members to seek out where the truth actually lies. go to twitter, The Bravo binge pointed out Raquel and Peter Madrigal’s on-air date, which was a storyline that took place well before the men’s night mentioned above. The account then asked: “If the affair started on guys’ night out, why did Sandoval care that Rachel was dating Peter and wanted to know if they were dating? I definitely believe it happened before or that an emotional affair has already taken place.”
on this plot hole, Sheana agreed and said:Million Dollar Question!”
Tom Sandoval’s text to Peter Madrigal explained
To understand this twist in the plot, Peter, a longtime manager at SUR, watched Kristen Doute’s podcast Sex, love and whatever else is importantwith aspects re-shared by @ratemybravo. Here he shared with his former Vanderpump Rules Costar that shortly after his date with Raquel aired on SUR, he received a text message from Tom, who he hadn’t heard from in six months.

Did you Raquel in the evening to Sur! fucked?‘” According to Peter, this text suggests that Tom was jealous, suggesting that his affair with Raquel had begun much earlier than stated.boys night” answer.
Peter could definitely be on to something because Tom’s text message to him could very well have been Tom’s way of secretly finding out if Raquel was now cheating on him with Peter or not. Or by the time this episode aired, Tom and Raquel had already been intimate, so maybe Tom was just trying to find out more about Raquel’s past before beginning their affair. Either way, this exchange of lyrics reflects badly on Tom, as it gives the already heated viewers even more fuel in their quest for truth as storylines continue to unravel and more lies and plot loopholes are uncovered in this off-air phase become.

When it comes to where exactly the truth is on the timeline of their affair, Raquel’s recent admission that she lied about certain events could very well lead to a redeeming story arc for Raquel. When Raquel returns to face the heat while also committing to telling the whole truth, her mate Vanderpump Rules Co-star forgiveness will be much easier to earn.
