‘Vanderpump Rules’ Raquel Leviss slams ‘sad’ editing for cutting Lala Kent’s apology
“Vanderpump Rules” star Raquel Leviss is calling out the show’s editors for cutting key dialogue from a scene during last night’s episode.
In the episode, Leviss, 25, sat down with co-star Lala Kent over coffee to hash out their feud, which dates back to the previous season.
During the scene, Leviss shared that she didn’t appreciate Kent calling her her “dumb.” Kent responded, “My time is very precious and I wouldn’t waste it on someone who I felt was a true idiot.”
“That means so much to me, Lala,” Leviss then said.
Fans on Leviss’ social media called Kent out for appearing to not give a proper apology.
“It was so sad to see Lala not apologize to you for the things she said to you,” one person wrote.
Leviss responded in a now-deleted comment, “You know what’s even more sad? Lala did apologize and they decided to edit that part out.”
Another fan pointed out that it was “obvious” and “shady” that the cast members’ conversation had been condensed.
“They tried to make it look like Lala gave you a non apology and you were just so grateful for any crumb lol,” the user commented. “I see you editors.”
Leviss wrote back, “Our conversation was much much longer than what was shown. This conversation was one of my favorite moments of filming because we really connected and were able to move on from last years argument.”
Kent’s rep did not immediately return Page Six’s request for comment. Bravo declined to comment.
The editors behind “Vanderpump Rules” have come under scrutiny before.
In January, fans called out a scene in which Ariana Madix‘s hair and makeup were noticeably different throughout.
“Did anyone else catch Ariana’s hair growing 3 inches over the course of her conversation with LVP?” one person said. “Come on Bravo editors….you can do better!”
However, Madix, 34, came to the show’s defense, saying re-shoots are often done when something “doesn’t line up, a shot is blurry, etc. just a way to fill in the gaps,” adding, “Nothing about pickups makes the show inauthentic or our conversations less real.”
