Raquel Leviss playing ‘hardball’ with Bravo contract as cast starts filming, wants ‘as much money’ as possible

Raquel Leviss is playing “hardball” with Bravo execs regarding the salary portion of her contract for “Vanderpump Rules” Season 11, a source tells Page Six exclusively.

“She wants to get as much money as she possibly can so she is playing hardball,” the insider tells us.

The source further notes that the expectation is that, by the time the cast goes on their trip to Lake Tahoe next week, Leviss and the network would have reached “a deal and she will appear.”

“But for the right price, she will be there,” the insider explains.

Despite Leviss being expected to start “filming soon,” the source tells us she is “genuinely concerned for her well-being” — especially after she was crucified during the Season 10 reunion.

“She wants to get as much money as she possibly can,” a source tells Page Six.

“Watching the reunion was excruciating,” the source tells us. “The way the other women just completely tore her apart and essentially wished her dead. It was just a lot to take.”

Page Six contacted reps for both Leviss and Bravo, but did not immediately hear back.

News of the former beauty queen’s possible return to the hit Bravo show comes weeks after it was reported that she was negotiating her contract details with the network.

Several sources told TMZ last month that Leviss — whose months-long affair with Sandoval, 41, was exposed in March — and Bravo had “complications” in sealing the deal.

Filming for the rest of the cast — including Ariana Madix, Sandoval, Lala Kent, Tom Schwartz, Katie Maloney, Scheana Shay and James Kennedy — resumed earlier this month.

Leviss has not seen the cast since they recorded the explosive three-part Season 10 reunion in March.

Shortly after the reunion, the reality star checked into a mental health facility to receive treatment for her mental health amid the drama.

“Raquel and her family decided months before the relationship was discovered that she needed mental health treatment and ultimately decided she would enter a voluntary facility for mental health counseling,” her rep told Page Six in April.

Sandoval had been in a nine-year relationship with Ariana Madix when he and Leviss started having an affair.

“Raquel was scheduled to go in pre-reunion but decided she wanted to finish her filming commitment.”

Sandoval had been in a nine-year relationship with Madix, 38, when he and Leviss started their affair, which was exposed in early March.

At the time, the Lifetime Movie actress discovered a sexually explicit video of Leviss on Sandoval’s phone, prompting her to dump him.

After apologizing to Madix, the TomTom co-owner and Leviss continued to see each other. However, the pair called it quits in May, just two months after their dalliance surfaced.

“Raquel dipped out. Sandoval is not the one for her,” an insider told us exclusively at the time.

Madix has since moved on with fitness trainer Daniel Wai. The pair celebrated her 38th birthday together at a club in Los Angeles last month.
