Scheana Shay gleefully reported that Ariana Madix ‘assassinated’ Raquel Leviss at the fiery Vanderpump Rules reunion.
A scandal erupted this month when Ariana dumped her longtime boyfriend Tom Sandoval after she discovered he was cheating on her with Raquel.
As the drama unfolded, Raquel filed a restraining order against Scheana, whom she accused of punching her during a confrontation about the ‘Scandoval’ affair.
The restraining order has since been dropped over Raquel’s failure to appear in court – though this latest legal development occurred after the March 23 reunion, meaning Scheana and Raquel had to maintain a 100 yard distance at the taping.
On the latest episode of her podcast Scheananigans, Scheana and her castmate Lala Kent gushed over the way Ariana laid into her ex-boyfriend’s other woman.

Lala rhapsodized that ‘Ariana handled herself so well. Like, she sat back, looked insanely hot and amazing and just f***ing sliced with her words.’
‘So good. It was beautiful to watch!’ Scheana agreed. ‘I really enjoyed watching that. It was just – there was no response. Like, there was nothing Raquel could have said back to her because she just assassinated her.’
Scheana and Lala also expressed how horrified they were at Tom Sandoval’s remarks over the course of the taping.
Under the terms of the restraining order, Scheana had to watch the reunion on video in a trailer whenever Raquel was onstage.
Scheana said that while observing Tom from the trailer ‘every time I looked up and heard anything come out of his mouth it was just like: “Are you f***ing kidding me?”‘
During the podcast episode, Lala and Scheana confirmed the rumors that two cast members almost came to blows but declined to reveal who.
Meanwhile, during a recent Amazon Live, Scheana revealed that she missed an early sign that skullduggery was afoot between Sandoval and Ariana.
The red flag was apparently raised last August on the morning of Scheana’s wedding to Brock Davies, with whom she shares her one-year-old daughter Summer Moon.

‘One of my girlfriends was like: “So I was at the pool the morning of your wedding and I was just looking back at some of my photos and there’s literally one with Tom and Raquel in the background in a cabana just hanging out at the pool together,”‘ Scheana recalled, according to a report in Us Weekly.
‘And my friend thought: “Don’t you guys need to be getting ready for the wedding? You’re actually in the wedding,”‘ she added.
‘They knew that Ariana was occupied with me as a good friend and a good bridesmaid so they took that time to hang out,’ Scheana claimed. ‘It’s just so disgusting I mean I sometimes don’t even have words for it.’
Raquel was spotted earlier this week meeting Tom at the home he shares with ex Ariana after their shocking affair came to light.
The Vanderpump Rules star, 28, was spotted outside of his home on Wednesday afternoon, packing up the trunk of her car, in photos obtained by TMZ.
She wore sweatpants, a black top, and slides as she threw various belongings into the back of her vehicle.
A half hour after Raquel departed, Tom was spotted leaving his home to catch a flight out of LAX.
A representative for Sandoval clarified to TMZ that Raquel merely stopped by his house to say good-bye before his flight: ‘Raquel did not spend the night at Tom and Ariana’s house. She stopped by the house Wednesday afternoon for about a half hour to say goodbye to Tom before he left town.’

Sandoval was traveling to his hometown of St. Louis on his own, and was spotted wearing a face mask and rolling his suitcase as he approached his Southwest terminal.
Page Six reports Madix is currently out of town shooting her new Lifetime film, Buying Back My Daughter.
It has been a tumultuous few weeks for the Vanderpump Rules cast ever since Sandoval and Leviss’ affair was revealed, leading to the end of Sandoval’s nine-year long relationship with Madix.
The drama also resulted in a restraining order filed by Leviss against co-star Scheana Shay, alleging Shay punched her after learning of the affair.
However, the temporary restraining order was dismissed by a judge after Raquel failed to appear in court on Wednesday.
Scheana, 37, was at the court but did not have the opportunity to speak on her own behalf since the order was dismissed.
TMZ’s cameraman asked Scheana why she thinks Raquel dropped the restraining order, to which Scheana said: ‘Well she didn’t drop it which is why we had to come here today. With this type of restraining orders, there’s no way to dismiss a case. That’s why we had to show up. But her absence today further proves that this was all a PR stunt from the beginning. And to just deflect from the affair. Save face and abuse the court system.’
She added: ‘There’s people out there who actually need this… there are real victims of domestic violence. There’s amazing organizations such as Futures Without Violence, LifeWire, who help people who really need this. The abusive process…’

Third party: The duo faced the music at a reunion taping last week
The cameraman asked her if she could ever see herself friends with her again, to which Scheana said: ‘Hell no! That’s a hard no.’
The outlet’s cameraman then asked if she is going to pursue anything against Raquel.
‘I’m going to have a meeting with my lawyer this week and we’re going to… You’re going to have to talk to him about that. And I’ve very thankful to have Neama [Rahmani] here [pointing at him walking besides her], who have been amazing and have worked so hard to make sure that the truth prevailed and I’m just very, very thankful for this guy. He’s been amazing.’
The camera noted it was unfortunate the show Vanderpump Rules will be more popular than ever because of the Tom Sandoval Raquel cheating scandal, to which Scheana agreed.
‘It’s extremely unfortunate. Ariana [Madix] doesn’t deserve what has happened to her. I’m just here to be her support system.’
Last week, Leviss and Sandoval faced the music at a reunion taping where Scheana had to be kept apart from Leviss to comply with the restraining order.
