After retreating from the spotlight following Scandavol, Rachel Leviss is making a comeback. The former Vanderpump Rules star, 29, has announced her new podcast, Rachel Goes Rogue, set to debut in the New Year. The new show will ‘lean into’ Rachel’s journey and see the former Bravolebrity get candid about her mental health breakdown and intensive treatment, according to a press release.
‘With “Rachel Goes Rogue”, Leviss will explore a spectrum of topics, mastering self-empowerment and navigating life’s challenges with grace and authenticity. She will passionately cultivate candid conversations, breaking the fourth wall in reality TV and frankly discussing living her entire dating life on camera. Opening up about her mental health breakdown and intensive treatment on the podcast, Leviss will aspire to inspire, bring awareness to mental health issues and challenge the stigma surrounding treatment. Every topic is on the table with Rachel confronting her truths, exposing secrets, and drawing strength from her continued transformations. She will also welcome prominent guests spanning the realms of entertainment, pop culture, mental health and self-help.’
In a teaser the former pageant queen said fans can expect to hear her side of the story. ‘I’m Rachel Leviss. This might not be the return you were expecting, but this coming January you’ll hear my side of the story. You may just be surprised by what you find out,’ she said. Rachel – who previously went by Raquel – announced the new iHeartRadio podcast herself on her Instagram, writing simply: ‘COMING JANUARY 2024.’
Rachel landed at the heart of one of the biggest scandals to hit reality TV earlier this year after it emerged she had been having an affair with Tom Sandoval, breaking the heart of his then-girlfriend Ariana Madix. The betrayal consumed the fandom for months to come, and both Rachel and Tom faced the music from their enraged castmates during an explosive three-part reunion. Leviss subsequently entered a mental health facility in April and left two months later.
When announcing her new podcast on Instagram, she received a shout-out from Bethenny Frankel, a former Bravo star who hosted the reality star on her own podcast in what marked Rachel’s first time speaking out since the height of the ‘Scandoval’ drama. ‘One man’s “trash” is a group of women’s treasure. Use your voice & let the haters fuel your own machine….’ Bethenny, who has also been leading a fight for reality stars to unionize, commented.
Opening up about why she chose to take a step back from the public eye, the Bravo star told Bethenny during her first sit down interview: ‘It’s been a whirlwind, it’s been chaos. But I’ve taken some time to myself to reflect and try to understand my actions. And I finally have come to the place where it makes sense to me.’ The reality star then explained that she chose to spend time in a treatment facility in an attempt to ‘understand my behaviors’. She stated: ‘But then the other part of the reason why I wanted to go to a treatment facility was to understand my behaviors and my goal was to really get down to the bottom of, “OK why am I choosing men that are unavailable, why do I keep finding myself in unhealthy relationships, what are the things that I need to change about my behavior.” And in knowing that I needed to make a change, I first had to know what leads to those behaviors.’ Read the full story: https://www.dailymail.co.uk/tvshowbiz/article-12812111/Rachel-Leviss-announces-Rachel-Goes-Rogue-podcast.html?ito=msngallery
