See you next Tuesday? More like see you never.

That's what Scheana Shay is thinking after her temporary restraining order from Vanderpump Rules co-star Raquel Leviss was dissolved earlier this week. Now, the Bravo star wants to keep her distance from a woman she used to call a close friend.

"I honestly hope I never have to see her again because I have nothing to even say to her face," Scheana told Lala Kent on Dear Media's Scheananigans With Scheana podcast March 31. "At this point, I've said everything I've wanted to say at the reunion."

According to Scheana, she doubts anything Raquel hears from her will have a serious impact.

"It's not going to go through," she explained. "Nothing is going to process."

Court documents confirm Raquel's temporary restraining order was discharged by the Superior Court of California in Los Angeles County on March 29 after a scheduled hearing took place. Scheana and her attorneys were the only party present for the court date. Afterwards, a source close to Raquel said Scheana and her attorney were notified at the March 23 reunion taping that the reality star wasn't moving forward with the case.

However, Scheana explained why she wanted to attend court proceedings

"Just because you said you weren't going to show up, I don't trust that," she said on her podcast. "I have to protect myself. I have to protect my family. I'm going to show up because until I see the judge say it's dismissed, I don't believe anything."

Scheana added that she apologized to court staff members during her appearance for "wasting their time."

"There were so many people in there dealing with some real s--t," she continued, "and that's what pisses me off."

As for how all this drama first got started? Everything changed earlier this month when it was revealed that Raquel had a months-long affair with Tom Sandoval, who was in a relationship with Scheana's best friend Ariana Madix for nine years. (Tom and Ariana split in the wake of the scandal.) 

Raquel took legal action against Scheana after she accused her castmate in court documents of pushing her and "causing injury to back of head" in the early hours of March 2, shortly after their joint taping of Watch What Happens Live. Scheana's attorney slammed Raquel's accusations saying, "This case is a fabrication. Scheana never punched Rachel, period."

While the affair initially caught Scheana and her co-stars by surprise, the relationship will be explored later this season on Vanderpump Rulesincluding the reunion. And Scheana shared what it's been like seeing season 10 unfold with the information she has now.

"There were a lot of red flags," she explained. "Watching back the show now, I'm like, ‘How did I miss the signs? How did I not see that? How could I allow someone so evil into my home?'" 

E! News has reached out to Raquel's rep for comment on Scheana's latest podcast and hasn't heard back. 

Vanderpump Rules airs Wednesday nights at 9 p.m. on Bravo.
