James’ girlfriend catches Raquel, Tom in intimate moment
James Kennedy’s girlfriend, Ally Lewber, allegedly spotted Tom Sandoval and Raquel Leviss getting a little too close for comfort during a night out in West Hollywood, Calif.
“I saw Sandoval and Raquel dancing together at The Abbey after [Kennedy’s] See You Next Tuesday [set at SUR],” the reality star, 27, said in a confessional during Wednesday’s episode of “Vanderpump Rules,” recalling a conversation she had with Lala Kent.
Lewber previously confided in Kent off-camera – along with Katie Maloney and Kristina Kelly – about feeling “weird” after seeing Leviss, 28, and Sandoval, 40, together at SUR that night.
“I thought it was kind of weird, because it was like 1 a.m. and we were like, ‘Where’s Ariana?’” Lewber told Kennedy, referring to Sandoval’s now ex-girlfriend, Ariana Madix.
Kennedy, 31, admitted at the time that he definitely “noticed” Leviss spending more time with and becoming “best of buds” with both Sandoval and his BFF, Tom Schwartz.
“I personally wouldn’t be comfortable with it, I guess, to have my boyfriend out at 1 a.m. with girls,” Lewber concluded in her confessional. “But everyone’s different.”
Kennedy seemed to shake off the sentiment and encouraged his girlfriend to “not put too much to it.”
At the time of the initial conversation, Leviss and Sandoval had already begun their secret months-long affair — unbeknownst to viewers, their cast members and Madix, 37.
However, Sandoval cursed out Maloney for even speculating that anything could be going on between him and Leviss when she addressed the late-night hangout later on in the episode.
“You get a lot of joy out of Raquel as well, I think,” Maloney, 36, told Sandoval.
She then brought up to Sandoval how he and Leviss were at The Abbey together “at one o’clock in the morning.”
“Dude, what even the f–k are you saying. Dude, get the f–k out of here man,” Sandoval fired back.
Sandoval and Leviss’ affair — dubbed Scandoval — was not exposed to the public until March. However, several cast members have pointed out that “Pump Rules” viewers will see how the obvious signs were there long before then.

Earlier in Wednesday’s episode, even Lisa Vanderpump called out Sandoval for acting a little too happy while sitting next to Leviss and putting his arm around her.
“Why do you like it so much? You’ve got a smile on your face,” Vanderpump told him, to which he subsequently placed his arm on his own lap.
Page Six previously broke the news that Lewber caught Sandoval and Leviss “dancing alone together” and thought it was “weird.”
“When they realized they’d been spotted looking cozy, Tom and Raquel appeared to act a little strange, like they were caught doing something bad,” a source told us last month.
The insider alleged that Lewber purposely didn’t bring up the allegation on camera at the time, because “she was very much bothered by Tom and Raquel’s interaction.”
Madix ultimately learned of the affair after seeing an explicit video of Leviss on Sandoval’s phone and dumped him on March 1. She has seemingly moved on as she was spotted making out with personal trainer Daniel Wai at Coachella over the weekend.
Meanwhile, Sandoval is “taking a break” from his romantic relationship with Leviss since the world learned of Scandoval on March 3.
“Vanderpump Rules” airs Wednesdays at 9 p.m. ET on Bravo.
