The moment Raquel Leviss recently took a dig at the Bravo network where she alleged that the network made tons of money off the ‘Scandoval.’
“The network is running to the bank — like, laughing, running to the bank with this scandal — and I haven’t seen a single penny,” said Leviss.
Why Raquel Leviss is not happy with Bravo?
Leviss went on to describe her situation as ‘exploitation,’ as she made her appearance on Bethenny Frankel’s ‘Just B’ podcast on Wednesday, August 16.
After Raquel Leviss and Tom Sandoval’s affair was caught on camera, the latter’s longtime girlfriend Ariana Madix ripped through both her cast members. Many fans anticipated the episode to be explosive and they weren’t disappointed. “I have been super selfish,” Leviss, said during the show. This prompted a reaction from Madix, “Selfish does not cover it. Diabolical, demented, subhuman,” reports PageSix.
“They’re making you and me to be pathological liars,” Sandoval said to Leviss. “I see that, even though we know that we’re not,” she responded.
After the fallout, Leviss went to a mental health facility to seek treatment, and the network made the most of the scandal. Especially Madix, who made around $1 million through several deals, other than landing a movie role, several sponsorships, and opening a West Hollywood sandwich shop, as per DailyMail.
How did Ariana Madix benefit from the ‘Scandoval’ incident?
According to Gina Rodriquez, head of the PR and production business Gitoni, “Ariana is hot in the news and everyone wants to see her do well.” “Usually, if you’re not the cheater, a cheating scandal can bring in quite a bit of money.”
According to Diana Abousleiman, the director of the brand development and marketing company DABC Limited, “Ariana’s Instagram fee before the scandal was probably between $10,000-$20,000 a post.” She continued, “Now that she is in the spotlight and really has the public’s support, her engagement and influence have gone up, as will her fees and other potentially more lucrative opportunities.”
Meanwhile, Leviss said on her stay at the mental health facility, helped her a lot, “And I’m so blessed that I had that opportunity to go and to extend into ninety days because I knew I wasn’t ready to leave yet. I knew I had more work to do, and I just feel so lucky that I was able to learn about myself at such a young age.”
