Days before Vanderpump Rules' jaw-dropping three-part reunion concluded June 7, the Give Them Lala podcast host revealed why she actually feels slightly bad for the former beauty queen in the wake of her months-long affair with co-star Tom Sandoval.
"You bring this girl in, blow up her life, and for you—because you're a narcissist—it's like it doesn't affect you either way," Lala exclusively told E! News' The Rundown host Erin Lim Rhodes in reference to the TomTom co-owner during an interview to promote her June 5 Amazon Live. "You're just thrilled people are talking about you."
Following the scandal, which came to light in March, Raquel sought trauma treatment while Tom continued touring and living his life.
"You could have really ruined her entire life," she continued. "Well, you kind of did. You absolutely did."
Lala then offered Raquel one piece of advice if she ever wants to come back from the controversial affair: "If she, like, moved and changed her name again."
Raquel, whose birth name is Rachel, tried making amends with her co-stars—especially Tom's ex Ariana Madix—during part three of the explosive VPR reunion. But when Raquel dropped a bombshell about the true timeline of their secret romance, Lala was just as caught off guard as fans were.
"I am so confused," Lala shared during a June 7 Watch What Happens Live interview. "Like it's weird because we've seen her go from, like, she's a lost soul to watch her friend cry, no emotion, to full breakdown like, 'I've been trying to protect Tom.'"
She added, "It's like taking a hit of acid."
