Raquel Leviss subtly supported the first photos and video of her and Tom Sandoval together following their bombshell months-long affair coming to light.
Leviss “liked” a video posted to fan account @pumprules Instagram that showed her and Sandoval spending time together at the highly anticipated Season 10 “Vanderpump Rules” reunion.
The former pageant queen didn’t elaborate on why she “liked” the video nor did she comment under it.
The pair matched in all-black outfits while having a heart-to-heart conversation during a smoking break outside of the taping on Thursday.
At one point, Bravo cameras tried to film their discussion, but Sandoval, 40, wasn’t having it and angrily talked to the producers while Leviss, 28, kept her arms crossed.
Sandoval and Leviss – who sat next to each other on the set – were joined by their other “Pump Rules” co-stars to discuss Scandoval as a group for the first time.
Not everyone could be in attendance, though, as Scheana Shay and Leviss had to film at separate times after Leviss obtained a temporary restraining order against Shay, 37, for claiming Shay allegedly hit her and bruised her eye.
Shay’s attorney – who has previously denied Leviss’ allegations against his client – told Page Six that Leviss had host Andy Cohen “serve” Shay papers with “no legal meaning” during Shay’s portion of the reunion.
“It was a request to dismiss a complaint or a civil lawsuit, but Rachel had requested a permanent restraining order, which is something completely different,” Neama Rahmani told Page Six in a statement Thursday, using Leviss’ legal name.
It’s unclear exactly when Cohen handed Shay the papers or when Leviss — who ended up filing to drop the permanent restraining order altogether on Friday — and Shay switched out spots on the reunion, but Shay was photographed arriving alongside her co-stars earlier in the day.
Cohen, 54, confirmed that filming concluded around 7 p.m. PT on Thursday and teased that it was “really confrontational” and “really emotional.”
“Nothing was left unsaid,” the “Watch What Happens Live” host said in an Instagram Story upon leaving the set.

Fellow “VPR” star Lala Kent confirmed Cohen’s sentiment and added that she was “drained.”
“That was the most exhausting reunion I’ve ever done in my life,” Kent said in an Instagram Story late Thursday night.
“I feel like I want to crawl into a hole and sob and scream, but I’m happy to be home now with my little one, crawl in bed, watch ‘Seinfeld’ and just, like, regroup.”
As Page Six previously reported, Ariana Madix dumped Sandoval after nearly 10 years together when she learned he was having a “full-on affair” with Leviss – who was once a very close friend of hers.
Meanwhile, Leviss recently divulged that she doesn’t “know where” her relationship with Sandoval is headed, because they’re both focused on “trying to get through these next few steps” and “make amends.”
“Vanderpump Rules” airs Wednesdays at 9 p.m. ET on Bravo.
