Raquel Leviss and James Kennedy were engaged for five years before the Vanderpump Rules season 9 finale. However, the two ended their relationship in the middle of filming the season 9 reunion in December 2021.
According to Us Weekly, Kennedy took no time in going public with his new girlfriend, Ally Lewber, whom he met just one month after ending his five-year relationship with Leviss.
Leviss revealed that she was hesitant about interacting with her ex when Season 10 of Vederpump Rules began filming in July 2022. She hadn't seen him in a long time.
This time, the dynamic will be different, and we haven't hung out since the breakup, so it's certainly going to be a different sort of situation than I'm used to, according to the lady.
In July 2022, the Schwartz & Sandys opening party took place. The cast gathered to commemorate the soft opening of the bar owned by Tom Sandoval and Tom Schwartz. There, Leviss confronted her ex and his new flame as the cameras rolled.
Raquel Leviss revealed that she spoke to Ally Lewber and revealed that their first meeting was recorded for VPR.
Leviss shared her first impression of Lewber in an interview with Us Weekly. She is a very sweet lady, according to the pageant queen. I actually like her. I see a lot of me in her.
Leviss said Bravos cameras would be available for their face-to-face meetings.
I didn't give her, like, straight-up advice [about James], she said. I let her know how I felt about him throughout the conversation. There's a lot of things about James that she loves, and I loved about him as well, like how funny he is, how charismatic he is, and how dedicated and hardworking he is. I'm confident that she's learned a lot from him and I did too.
At the first glance, Leviss judged Kennedys new relationship.
Leviss said she wishes Kennedy and Lewber the best with their relationship, but she wasnt happy about the romance until the start of the episode. On the April 1, 2022 episode of the Youre Gonna Love Me podcast, Maloney shaded Kennedys rebound relationship.
Leviss informed Maloney during the podcast that he is considering you if you have a girlfriend.
Leviss did note that she didnt want to slander her former boyfriend too harsh because she was the one who ended the relationship, and we all deal with separation differently.
But I do believe that being single isnt a bad thing. I think it's a great time to re-evaluate yourself, heal from past traumas, and explore what you really, really like, and meet new people.
Kennedys new romantic relationship has also been weighed in by other Vanderpump Rules actors.
I'll even give her any influence, like she is. During an interview with E! News Daily Pop in January, Shay said of Lewber.
Lala Kent was interviewed about Lewber on Watch What Happens Live in April 2022. She said, "I met her once, per BravoTV.com.It's difficult to remember it well. "I'm sober," she said.
Ariana Madix of Vanderpump Rules talked about meeting Lewber during the MTV TV and Movie Awards in June, and she agreed to her.
Madix said his new girlfriend is lovely, she is very sweet, and I have enjoyed our conversations.
