Andy Cohen on Raquel Leviss-Tom Sandoval affair reveal


Andy Cohen admitted that he felt “odd energy” from Raquel Leviss and Tom Sandoval before their bombshell affair was revealed.

Cohen was surprised on Wednesday, just hours before the news broke, that Leviss said on “Watch What Happens Live with Andy Cohen” that she thought Sandoval, 39, was cuter than Tom Schwartz, with whom she’d also previously kissed.

“I looked up and said to Raquel, ‘Oh you said Sandoval, hmm,’ and then we moved on,” Cohen said on Monday’s episode of SiriusXM’s “Andy Cohen Live.”

Cohen then revealed that during the commercial break, her co-star, Scheana Shay, asked Leviss, 28, about her surprising answer.

“Scheana said to – I guess Scheana’s antena was up – and Scheana said to Raquel, ‘You know I only picked Sandoval, because I knew that you were gonna pick Schwartz,’ and Raquel said, ‘Well Sandoval has abs’ and kind of shrugged, so you know that was interesting.”

Cohen emphasized that at the time he “didn’t think twice about it,” but after news broke of Leviss and Sandoval’s affair on Friday, he messaged Shay, 37, to get more details on the interaction, but he didn’t divulge what Shay specifically told him.

“I thought it was odd,” Cohen admitted.

Cohen, 54, then discussed when Sandoval and Schwartz, 40, appeared on “WWHL” on Feb. 8.

“When Schwartz was on with Sandoval on premiere night, there was some odd energy between them,” Cohen explained. “Schwartz was looking at Sandoval the entire time –almost for guidance on answers.”

Cohen’s feelings on the “odd” episode led him to wonder, “when did Schwartz find out about this?”

The dad of two brought up another tidbit of him, Leviss and Madix, 37, all watching Sandoval’s band, Tom Sandoval & The Most Extras, perform during BravoCon in October.

“I was at that show, and I’m standing there, and Raquel’s standing behind me, and Ariana’s in front of me, and you can see how they’re both looking at Sandoval. It’s wild,” Cohen continued.

Cohen revealed that he learned of the affair on Thursday – just one day after Leviss and Shay appeared on his late night talk show.

The author said he found the revelation “disturbing,” “shocking” and “upsetting.” He also confirmed that Bravo cameras have been filming the whole ordeal and it will play out before the reunion – which films in two weeks – airs.

Page Six confirmed on Friday that Madix – who began dating Sandoval in 2014 – had dumped Sandoval after learning he was having a “full-on affair” with Leviss when she saw a sexually explicit video of her former friend on Sandoval’s phone on Wednesday night.

Madix also learned that the pair had been allegedly “communicating inappropriately for months.”

A source claimed to Page Six that the two have been having the affair since “last summer” when Leviss had “slept over Tom and Ariana’s house when Ariana’s been out of town.”

“Ariana was blindsided by the cheating,” a source previously told Page Six and added that she had “no idea there were any issues” with Sandoval and feels “betrayed” by Leviss.

Another insider spilled that Leviss and Sandoval, who showed their secret love for each other by wearing matching lightning bolt necklaces, “want to be together.”

Madix has continued to keep her social media accounts deactivated, but Sandoval shared a lengthy statement on Saturday.

“I fully understand and deserve ur anger & disappointment towards me, but please leave [Tom] Schwartz my friends and family out of this situation,” he wrote in part, notably not addressing Madix.

Leviss has not addressed the affair.
