The Gist:

  • Raquel Leviss made her debut on Vanderpump Rules Season 5 — as James Kennedy's new girlfriend.
  • Raquel has been a regular on Vanderpump Rules ever since, though she may not be returning for Season 11.
  • While some sources suggest Raquel is a millionaire, that no longer seems to be the cast as of October 2023.

Season 10 of Vanderpump Rules is definitely the most dramatic yet. Raquel Leviss’s involvement with Tom Schwartz took things from messy to messier, but things got messiest with the bombshell news about Raquel and Tom Sandoval's reported months-long affair while he was still with Ariana Madix. Ariana and Tom are kaput, and the #Scandoval is all anyone can talk about until Season 11 drops!

Let's just say Raquel has made quite a name for herself since first appearing on Vanderpump Rules in Season 5. As a result, her net worth has skyrocketed in recent years. From reality television to pageantry to business collaborations, read on to learn more about where the 28-year-old’s net worth comes from.

Raquel Leviss’s impressive net worth started with pageantry.

In March 2023, Life & Style reported that Raquel Leviss’s net worth was an estimated $30 million. However, as of October 2023, sources like Celebrity Net Worth say she's only worth $500,000. In August 2023, Raquel reportedly complained about not being fairly compensated for helping boost the TV show's ratings and being portrayed "as the ultimate villain," Yahoo reported.

Despite this, the discrepancy has many questioning just how rich the reality TV star actually is.

The Vanderpump Rules star is no stranger to the spotlight. Per Us Weekly, Raquel was passionate about pageants growing up and even secured the Miss Sonoma County title in 2016.

"I just wrapped my last ever Miss California USA headshot," Raquel wrote on Instagram. "It's so bittersweet knowing this will be the last time I compete in a state pageant. Fingers crossed that it won't be my very last pageant ever and that I will have the opportunity to represent California on the Miss USA stage."

Raquel’s active social media presence also contributes to her net worth.

The Vanderpump Rules star shares branded content that bolsters her colossal net worth on Instagram. From a Porsche x REVOLVE collab to White Fox Boutique ads, Raquel’s social media presence includes no shortage of impressive brand deals.

In addition, the former pageant queen frequently promotes Vanderpump Rules on her Instagram page. As the primary source of her $500,000 million net worth, it behooves her to share behind-the-scenes photos, videos, and more with her fellow cast members.

Part of Raquel Leviss’s net worth stems from her beauty collab with ‘Vanderpump Rules’ co-star Lala Kent.

In May 2022, Raquel teamed up with fellow Vanderpump Rules star Lala Kent to create an eyeshadow palette for her brand Lala Beauty. The palette’s name paid homage to their dramatic Season 7 fight, where Lala called Raquel a “Bambi-eyed b---h.”

Naturally, the product’s name reflects the iconic insult, as it's called the Bambi-Eyed B---h Palette.

At this point, it's unclear what the future holds for Raquel and Lala's collaborative relationship. Lala did not hold back when it came to expressing her feelings about the news of Raquel and Tom's affair.

And when Raquel sent the VPR cast legal letters requesting they delete the inappropriate video of Raquel that Ariana reportedly found on Tom's phone, Lala said, in a now-deleted Instagram story, per Page Six, “Raquel, tell your little Mickey Mouse lawyer that if he has stuff to send over, he can send things to my lawyer, same with the rest of my friends and cast all right?”

Raquel Leviss's future on 'Vanderpump Rules' is now a big ol' question mark.

Both Tom and Raquel posted apology statements addressing the affair on March 8. In her statement (which has since been taken down), Raquel said, "There is no excuse. I am not a victim and must own my actions. I deeply regret hurting Ariana." She revealed that she is seeing a counselor to "understand [her] behavior and make healthier choices."

"Although I chose to be on a reality show, accepting the good and bad that comes with it," she continued, "beyond my own actions, I have been physically assaulted, lost friendships, received death threats and hate emails in addition to having my privacy violated."

Will Raquel continue to be a member of the VPR cast? What does the future hold for her and Tom's relationship? Her and Ariana's friendship?

Stream Season 1 through 10 of Vanderpump Rules on Bravo and stay tuned for updates on Season 11.
