Which ‘Vanderpump Rules’ Cast Members Congratulated Raquel Leviss on the New Job at SUR?
The Vanderpump Rules and SUR family gained a new member as James Kennedy’s girlfriend Raquel Leviss announced she is a new SURver.
Leviss has been more visible on the show after she earned her degree from Sonoma State University. She would often appear on the show by Kennedy’s side but spent a good amount of time off-camera because she was busy attending classes.
This season, however, Leviss was so present on the show, she may have been considered to be a cast member. While most cast members seem to take her presence in stride, will they accept her as a coworker, considering most no longer speak to Kennedy?
Only these coworkers showed up for the big ‘puppy shower’
When Leviss and Kennedy wanted to throw their new pup a welcome shower, many of the cast members refused to attend. The cast doesn’t seem to have any issues with Leviss, but some have some serious angst about Kennedy.
When Leviss invited Jax Taylor and Brittany Cartwright, Taylor told her if she was throwing the party on her own, he’d be happy to attend. But the Kennedy connection inspired him to bow out. She got a similar reaction from Stassi Schroeder too.
Thankfully, Tom Sandoval, Ariana Madix, Peter Madrigal and Billie Lee were present for the dog-themed bash. Madrigal also got a little extra attention during the shower thanks to Leviss’ mom.
This could stir up some drama
Leviss posted that she is the new addition to SUR’s wait staff, so she’s not starting out by bussing tables or as a hostess. Could the fact she went right for one of the most coveted jobs at the restaurant cause a little animosity?
One reason it could be a sticking point is that it took Cartwright a little time before she was welcomed to the SUR family. After arriving in Los Angeles, Taylor tried to help Cartwright get a job at SUR. But boss Lisa Vanderpump wasn’t ready to pull the trigger. So Cartwright worked at Hooters for a while. She was ultimately hired at SUR but had to prove herself first.
Taylor is already at odds with Kennedy so working side by side with his girl may not sit overly well with him. Especially when it took Cartwright time before she landed a server job. Also, Katie Maloney may give her an icy reception. Comments Kennedy made about Maloney’s weight were the reason he was fired. So having Leviss on staff may provide Kennedy more opportunities to hang out at SUR. And add gas to the fire with Maloney.
Leviss seems thrilled about the new job
Leviss posted an adorable photo in her new SUR uniform outside the restaurant. “SURprise!!!!! You’re looking at the newest addition to SUR’s wait staff! May I take your order?” she wrote.
The photo received plenty of likes and comments. “Yes!!! So excited for this! Can’t wait to work with you boo! Oh this Sunday! Brunch!” pal and SUR hostess Billie Lee exclaimed. Lee also reposted the image, which Kennedy reposted to his Instagram story.
Also, SUR co-owner Guillermo Zapata replied, “Welcome to #SURFAMILY❤️” Among the photo likes was Below Deck deckhand Ashton Pienaar. Otherwise, other cast members have yet to respond.
