Rachel Leviss Says Tom Sandoval 'Crossed a Boundary' Romanticizing Their Affair as a “Romeo & Juliet” 'Suicide Pact'

Rachel "Raquel" Leviss has major issues with how Tom Sandoval is telling the story of their now-severed relationship.

The Vanderpump Rules alum, 29, took to her own Rachel Goes Rogue podcast on Monday to share her thoughts on Sandoval’s revelations in his interview for Tamra Judge and Teddi Mellencamp Arroyave's Two Ts in a Pod. Specifically, Sandoval claimed on the Housewives' podcast that he and Leviss were on the phone in the aftermath of Scandoval and “literally debating on f---ing killing ourselves.”

“That one I really went into deep processing with my therapist because it was like, ‘Whoa, why are you talking about this personal information that was like privy to only your ears,’” she shared. “Like this is a vulnerable topic, a vulnerable position for me to be sharing with you, and you're telling Teddi and Tamra and whoever else is listening to this popular podcast that I have had dark thoughts.”

“But the way that he said it too, he made it seem like we had a suicide pact, like it was some Romeo and Juliet love story,” she continued. “Uhh! That really angered me.”

Leviss added that it is “not OK to be discussing that personal emotional turmoil, state of mind with the rest of the world and now it's a topic of conversation. That really crossed a boundary.”

The former reality star also alleged that Sandoval, 41, mentioned having “guns” when she tried to end their relationship.

When asked if she felt that she had “abandoned” her ex while receiving treatment at The Meadows, a mental health facility in Arizona that she entered at the height of the Scandoval to address her trauma and love addiction, she responded, “A little bit. Yeah. I do. But you know, I've been advised that that would be the best way for me to end it, because if I tried to explain the reasons why I'm breaking up with him, he would figure out a way to get back into my good graces.”

She continued, “I mean, I even tried to break up with him before he went on Special Forces ... and he was like, ‘Please don’t do this to me. Please don’t do this to me.’ And then started talking about how [his friend] Kyle Chan had to come over and remove the guns from his house. … Now I’m talking him off the ledge.”

Leviss added that the intense conversation made her think that it was best to stop all communication, saying, “And so, you know, like after he did that, it was like, He’s gonna pull something to keep me in his grasp. So, yeah, I just had to ghost him.”

Sandoval’s reps declined to comment on her allegations when reached by PEOPLE.

During last week’s Vanderpump Rules after show, Sandoval revealed that communication between the two stopped "shortly before" he appeared on Special Forces: World's Toughest Test, which he filmed just before production on VPR season 11 began last summer.

Sandoval said cutting ties was "really hard" since he had been doing "everything" possible to support her following her treatment.

"It was so defeating. I was doing everything I could to be there with her," Sandoval said of Leviss. "That's why I quit drinking. That's why I quit smoking because I knew she couldn't do that. I wanted for when she got out [for us] to be on the same page. Maybe we could have our first drink together."

When asked why Leviss chose to stop talking to him, he said that he believes there are "a lot of reasons."
