Rachel Leviss is going ‘Rogue’ … if that’s what you want to call it. 

The former Vanderpump Rules star dropped her first podcast episode, Rachel Goes Rogue, and tells her side of the the alleged night Scandoval began.

The controversial Bravo TV personality told her co-host, “I could tell you the story and then you can decide who made the first move … because I’m not accusing anyone…” [anyone being Tom Sandoval].

In a nutshell, Tom wormed his way into SUR while Rachel (then Raquel Leviss) was filming with Lisa Vanderpump. Rachel admitted she had “starting to feel a certain way” about the TomTom and Schwartz & Sandy‘s co-owner at this point even though she was close friends with his life partner, Ariana Madix.

“Cue the ‘love bombing,'” joked Rachel alluding to how Sandoval courted her behind Ariana’s back as evidenced by Tom doing little things for her, such as treating her to her favorite strawberry cocktail.

On to the now-infamous night after getting spotted together at The Abbey

Rachel drove Tom home where he proceeded to invite Rachel inside for a “nightcap” while Ariana was “upstairs sleeping.”

But …

Tom locked himself out of his own house, so he took Rachel to the backyard to chat by the fire pit. They got ended up getting in Tom and Ariana’s “heated pool” – Rachel in a corset and undies while Tom wore his boxers.

Sandoval “looked at me a certain way and then he, like, grabbed me, spun me, and kissed me,” detailed Rachel.

“I was, like, surprised but, like, happy. So embarrassing.”

“Right after Tom kissed me, he, like, sat on the stair of the pool. He was, like, hands on his face, like, his mind must have been running a million miles a minute, like, contemplating what to do.”

Rachel decided to remove herself from the situation when she claims Tom said, “No, no, no. Don’t go, just sit down.”

Allegedly, Tom said he needed a minute to process what had just transpired. “I don’t know what to do right now cuz I, like, really like you, but, you know.”

Rachel suggests they continue the conversation in her car.

The podcast’s co-host asked if she and Tom hooked up in the car. “We did” answered Rachel.

DJ James Kennedy‘s former fiancé described her feelings at the time. “I feel like I’m in this, like, romantic, like I feel swept off my feet. Like, I feel so infatuated and, like, loved.”

“This is my crazy life. This is what I got myself into,” concluded the former beauty pageant contestant.
