During an appearance on Amazon Live on Monday, Lala, 33, lashed out at Raquel’s behavior, slamming her as a “coward” for failing to return to the show and suggesting that she’s “helpless,” despite the months she spent in a mental health facility after her sordid affair with Sandoval, 40, was exposed.
“Wait! What? What happened?” Lala proclaimed after the Instagram drama was brought to her attention.
After Lala’s assistant informed her that Raquel blocked Sandoval after he sent her a message on her 29th birthday, telling her he missed her and hoped she was doing well, and later posted a screenshot of the block along with an “X” over Sandoval’s face, Lala wanted to know more.
“For what reason?” she asked, via Bravo Snark Side on Instagram.
When the assistant further explained that Raquel had wanted to show her fans that she was moving on from her past romance with Sandoval, Lala shared her thoughts.
“Well I see that the mental health facility really helped her. She’s just come so far. She’s just so removed from this world,” Lala sarcastically said, giving a nod to Raquel’s months-long stint at Arizona’s The Meadows.
“Rachel, I really tried and you are just beyond like helpless,” she continued. “I can’t believe she did like the ‘X’ through his face and blocked. Like, honey, we’ve moved on. That happened like 500 years ago and if you had something to say, you should’ve come on the show after you blew everyone’s world up and you should’ve addressed it. But instead, apparently, all that you learned from your time away is that you get on social media.”
According to Lala, she believes Raquel is someone who can’t confront her issues head-on.
“Here’s the difference between you and me: I’m willing to go toes on the Gram, on Twitter, on Threads, on Facebook, and then when I see you, we’re still gonna go toes. You don’t know how to do that because you’re a coward and that’s the dumbest thing I’ve heard all day,” she stated.
As Pump Rules fans may recall, Sandoval also spoke out against Raquel after she blocked him, telling PEOPLE days ago that he “[feels] bad for her.”
“I think she’s really struggling with taking accountability for her actions and just wants to point fingers and be mad at everybody else,” he revealed. “There were two of us in this situation. We both screwed up.”
Vanderpump Rules season 11 is expected to premiere on Bravo sometime later this year or in early 2024.
