Raquel Leviss is talking about the “attack” she says her co-star on Vanderpump Rules, Scheana Shay, did on her after the scandal with Tom Sandoval.
People were able to get court documents that show the Los Angeles Superior Court gave Leviss the temporary restraining order he asked for against Shay.
In the filing, Leviss, who is 28 years old, said that she hurt herself in a fight with Shay, who is 37, at 1:30 a.m. last Thursday.
The Bravo star said that Shay pushed her against a brick wall, hurting the back of her head, and then “punched me in the face,” hurting her left eye. She said that after the attack, she had “a black eye, a cut/scar on her left eyebrow, blurred vision, and swelling in her left eye.”
Leviss said that Shay doesn’t seem sorry for what she did after hearing from people they both know.
“Right now, our mutual friends and coworkers tell me that she doesn’t regret attacking me physically and that she would do it again if she found that our mutual friend was upset even more,” she said.
Leviss also sent pictures of her injuries to the court, which TMZ shared.

She also sent a screenshot of Shay’s most recent Instagram post, which was a picture of her and Madix with the words “Always got your back! #TeamAriana” written next to it. Leviss circled the punch emoji twice in the filing to show how important it was to him.
People tried to talk to a representative for Shay, but they didn’t have anything to say.
Leviss’s legal action follows the breakdown with her co-stars following the revelation of her affair with Sandoval, age 40. Shay was with Leviss when Ariana Madix, Sandoval‘s fiancée of more than nine years, discovered his infidelity.
Madix uncovered Sandoval’s adultery when she saw an intimate video and “inappropriate” text messages between the two on his phone while he was performing in Los Angeles with his band on March 1.
On that evening, on the opposite side of the country, Leviss and Shay appeared on See What Happens Live with Andy Cohen, where she justified her decision to kiss Tom Schwartz, Sandoval’s best friend and business partner.
A source told PEOPLE that after the taping, Leviss informed Shay the truth about her and Sandoval.
“Scheana was outraged,” according to the source. “She and the other cast members of Vanderpump Rules have rallied around Ariana at this time. They cannot think Raquel would act in such a manner.”
Leviss sent a legal letter to her castmates in response to the revelation, telling them not to reveal the recording of her intimate FaceTime chat with Sandoval, which Madix discovered on his phone. Also, letters were written to Sandoval and Madix.
The relevant video was “among Tom and Raquel Tom had screen-recorded the video. When she discovered it on Tom’s phone, Ariana taped and texted it to herself “A source revealed to PEOPLE.
In the legal notice viewed by PEOPLE, Leviss’s attorneys claimed the video was illegal and without the reality star’s permission recorded. The letter sent to Sandoval identified him as the individual who allegedly made the recording.
The reality star’s attorneys instructed anyone with access to the recording to delete it from their phones, the cloud, and “any other manner or method in which it may exist.”

The attorneys also demanded to know “everyone to whom you have forwarded this recording or who you may have permitted to view it.” In a letter to Madix, attorneys explained that while they “appreciate the distress that this may have caused you,” re-recording the footage is illegal and could expose her to “criminal and civil penalties.”
According to the attorneys, the distribution of the video would violate California law, which prohibits the distribution of nonconsensual pornography. “This includes sending the recording to another person, even if it’s just one other person,” the attorneys noted.
This matter should be taken very seriously, the letter warned the VPR cast. Attorney stated at the conclusion of Sandoval’s letter, “This is a grave matter. Your exposure is significant.”
