Vanderpump Rules’ Raquel Leviss won’t attend restraining order hearing against Scheana Shay, but stands by accusations.

Raquel Leviss will not attend a court hearing regarding her restraining order against Scheana Shay, but she stands by her allegations that Shay punched her in the face and gave her a black eye. Leviss and her lawyer will not be present at the Los Angeles Superior Court, and the hearing was set to determine whether to make the temporary restraining order permanent. While Leviss informed Shay she was dropping the restraining order at a reunion taping last week, Shay’s attorney released a statement noting they would still be present in court.

Raquel Leviss will not attend the court hearing to determine if her temporary restraining order against Scheana Shay will become permanent, but she stands by her accusations of being punched in the face by Shay.

Reality star Raquel Leviss has chosen not to attend a court hearing relating to her restraining order against fellow Vanderpump Rules cast member Scheana Shay. Leviss received a temporary restraining order against Shay after alleging the latter punched her in the face and gave her a black eye. The incident was said to have taken place after Leviss revealed to Shay that she had been involved in a seven-month affair with co-star Tom Sandoval.  Leviss will not be at the hearing, which had been designed to determine whether the temporary order should be made permanent.

Sources familiar with the situation have told media outlets that Leviss stands by her original claims despite not presenting them in court. Shay’s lawyer has denied that the incident ever took place, while Leviss apparently submitted a series of photographs documenting her alleged injuries. “The supposed dark markings around her left eye have been there for months,” Shay’s attorney said.

Leviss had informed Shay that she was dropping the restraining order during a recent show reunion taping. Following this, producers were reportedly forced to film each of the cast members separately to avoid any legal complications. Shay’s attorney has since confirmed that he will be present in court during the hearing, despite Leviss issuing a request for it to be taken off the calendar. A source close to Leviss has told reporters that, “Raquel stands by her initial statement that Scheana punched her in the face supported by photos of her bruised eyebrow bone and slashed eyebrow — Not the dark circles that Scheana is trying to deflect towards”.

Despite Leviss choosing not to attend the latest hearing, her attorney has filed documentation being requested by the court clerk. A full hearing relating to the matter is now expected to take place on 29 March. It is not yet known whether any further statements from the two cast members will be released ahead of that date.
