Former ‘Vanderpump Rules’ Star Rachel Leviss Talks About the New Man She’s Dating; Says She Won’t Rush Sex Due to Already Having a “Reputation”

Bambi-Eyed B has herself a new boo.

Rachel Leviss says she’s open to getting into a new relationship now that she’s completely moved past “Scandoval”— but she’s not ready to get into bed with anyone just yet.

Nearly a year-and-a-half after Rachel Leviss and Tom Sandoval’s months-long affair was exposed to the world– and to Sandoval’s long-time girlfriend, Ariana Madix– Rachel has revealed that there is a new man in her life– one who (presumably) does not wear white nail polish and have a live-in girlfriend.

On a recent episode of her podcast, Rachel Goes Rogue, the former Vanderpump Rules star spoke about getting back into the dating world after allegedly taking a year off from dating to work on herself. 

“I just happened to make mine on TV….and make a lot of them!” 

“ … Now that I’m, you know, getting back out there and meeting new people, I met someone who I had awesome communication with and he was very emotionally intelligent and emotionally regulated and it just didn’t work out,” she said. 

While her first post-Sandoval connection didn’t pan out, Rachel went on to reveal that another man has since caught her eye.  

“I’ve kind of been seeing somebody else and it’s been fun and like, a fling,” she said. “He’s just so sweet, so kind and like … it really does make a difference.” 

“I’m sweet! I’m KIND! Well…kind of.” 

Back in April, it was rumored that Rachel had started dating an investment CEO named Matthew Dunn, though in May, Rachel’s publicist told People the two were just friends and it was “a little too soon to jump to any labels.”  

According to LinkedIn, Matthew is the owner of Dunn Investment Group in Spokane, Washington; according to @bravosnarkside– who reposted a photo of the duo in April– Matthew is also a single father. 

While Rachel didn’t reveal during the podcast episode if she was referring to Matthew or another man, she admitted that her past relationships– which she said were “abusive” and “toxic”– somewhat complicate her current one. 

“It’s hard for me to be with a sweet guy and think of it as a serious long-term thing,” she said. “Like, I don’t see him as my husband. 

“So you’re sayin’ there’s a chance…”

“I think we need to experience that sweetness and that other side of the spectrum in order to find a good balance,” she added. 

As for what kind of man Rachel is looking for, the “Bambi-Eyed Bitch” has high expectations.

“I’m looking forward to it. I’m looking for someone who is safe and reliable and emotionally mature, emotionally stable, and someone who’s gonna treat me right,” Rachel said.

“Well, I guess that kind of counts me out, eh?”

She has also set higher expectations for herself. Rachel stated that she is trying to overcome the public’s assumption that she’s a floozy, due to her affair with Scandoval.

“I definitely wouldn’t sleep with someone on the third date, especially because I already have a reputation,” she said. “[I] don’t need people making assumptions about me being easy.”

Rachel added that not having sex with her dates has allowed her to get to know the men more.

“I do enjoy deep conversations,” she said.
