Rachel Leviss’ NYFW Runway Debut

Ariana Madix isn’t the only Vanderpump Rules star with a shiny new gig. In a surprising turn of events, Rachel Leviss (formerly known as Raquel) just made her NYFW modeling debut. The former pageant queen traded in her sashes and tiaras to walk the runway in two stunning evening gowns for Glaudi by Johana Hernandez.

The 29-year-old’s journey from a VPR side character to a controversial figure started in March 2023 when her affair with costar Tom Sandoval was exposed by his then partner of nine years, Madix. Since then, Leviss has faced both criticism and support from fans and viewers.

Leviss’ Thoughts on Her Career Move

In a recent interview with People ahead of the Art Hearts Fashion show on February 9, Leviss opened up about her challenging experiences. “It was a very difficult time for me,” she shared. “I felt like I wasn’t going to get through it at some moments. And so I’m just so happy that I’m able to see the light at the end of the tunnel and finally reintegrate into the real world.”

She expressed her pride in her progress, emphasizing her focus on prioritizing her mental health and personal well-being.

Reactions from Fans

Despite the mixed opinions surrounding Leviss and Sandoval, reactions to her NYFW debut varied among fans. Some expressed support for her second chance and growth, while others remained critical of her actions.

  1. “I hope the best for her! She’s young and beautiful and has so much life left ahead of her! Glad she’s healing and growing,” one fan commented on social media.

  2. On the other hand, some fans believe Leviss has not yet earned her redemption, pointing out her past behavior.

Rachel Leviss’ Future in the Entertainment Industry

Although Leviss chose not to return to Vanderpump Rules for season 11, she continues to share her experiences through her podcast, Rachel Goes Rogue. Her goal is to contribute to a more positive and ethical reality TV environment by educating viewers about the complexities of the genre.

As Leviss navigates her career post-VPR, her NYFW runway debut marks a significant step in her journey towards personal and professional growth.
