Tom Schwartz DENIES conspiracy theory that he only kissed Raquel Leviss to cover up for Tom Sandoval

Tom Schwartz has vehemently denied a conspiracy theory that he kissed his Vanderpump Rules co-star Raquel Leviss on camera to cover up for Tom Sandoval.

The rumor began after a scene in the popular reality show that aired on Monday night, where Tom Schwartz and Raquel shared a romantic kiss. Some viewers speculated that Tom Schwartz was kissing Raquel to cover up for Tom Sandoval’s indiscretions with a woman named Lala Kent.

However, Tom Schwartz took to Twitter on Tuesday to deny the theory, writing: “I kissed Raquel because I'm wildly attracted to her and I wanted to. Not because I was covering for anyone.”

The conspiracy theory was further fueled by comments from Raquel during the same episode. When asked if she was aware of the rumors, Raquel said: “I do know about them, and I think it’s really funny that people would think that Tom [Schwartz] would do something like that for Tom [Sandoval].”

However, it appears that the kiss was purely platonic. Tom Schwartz and Raquel Leviss have been friends for years, and the two have always had a special bond.

Tom Schwartz later clarified his tweet, saying: “Raquel is an amazing person and I'm lucky to have her in my life. She's been a great friend to me and I cherish her friendship.”

It seems that the conspiracy theory has been put to rest, and Tom Schwartz and Raquel Leviss can go back to being just friends.
