It seems there won’t be another “Vanderpump Rules” romance on the horizon after all.
Tom Schwartz told Page Six exclusively at BravoCon 2022 on Sunday that he doesn’t see a future with his co-star Raquel Leviss after she gushed over their “flirty” connection.
“It’s been an absolute pleasure to get to know her on a deeper level,” he began.
“I’ve been chatting with people [about how] I didn’t really ever bond with Raquel before, but now I see the depth of character and how funny she is.”
However, when asked whether he foresees a relationship with Leviss, Schwartz replied, “I don’t think so.”
“I have a great admiration for her, and we’re tight, we’re friends, we’re boys,” he joked.
Schwartz, 40, also revealed the pair shared “a climatic moment,” but he remained coy about what exactly went down.
“I’ll just say that I have a great appreciation for her, and it’s cool,” he teased.
The bar owner’s comments come one day after Leviss, 28, spoke candidly about her newly single castmate amid rumors they hooked up at Scheana Shay’s wedding in August.
“I think he’s cute. I feel like we have a little flirty, friendly connection that’s lighthearted and fun,” she told us at BravoCon on Saturday.
“He’s a very sweet guy, obviously, and easy to talk to. It’s just very nice to have a friend in my corner.”
Leviss then joined Schwartz, along with co-stars Tom Sandoval Ariana Madix, for his 40th birthday celebration at LAVO Italian Restaurant on Sunday.
The pair are both on the market after Levisscalled off her engagement to James Kennedyin December 2021 and Schwartz split from his wife, Katie Maloneyin March after 12 years together. Their divorce was just finalized last Wednesday.
The TomTom co-owner admitted during BravoCon’s “Pump Rules” panel that he was “a sad sack of s—t” for the first few months following his separation from Maloney, 35.
“I turned emo for a while. I was kind of wallowing in my own little pity party,” he said.
Meanwhile, Leviss told us she has been “having fun” in her “single life” — despite a brief entanglement with fellow Bravolebrity Garcelle Beauvais’ married son, Oliver Saunders.
