In an interview filmed six days after the reunion, Leviss dropped a big bombshell, declaring it was “important” that she finally told the truth.
“I think I’ve lied all along and cheated to the point where I don’t want to lie anymore,” Leviss said. “But it’s all out there. The worst is out there, but I still have to lie about certain timing things.”
When asked by a producer why she lied, Leviss said Sandoval felt “it would be less hurtful to say that this isn’t going to continue for long.”
When did your affair actually start? Leviss revealed they first met when the cast were in Mexico for Shay’s wedding and it became a regular occurrence thereafter. “It definitely picked up speed after filming,” she said.
Leviss then confirmed that she met Sandoval’s family and traveled to his hometown of St. Louis.
Finally, Leviss revealed that she and Sandoval slept together when Madix was out of town for her grandmother’s funeral.
“That’s the only story we agreed to clarify and I know Tom wanted to lie about it because getting involved with someone’s boyfriend in their own house after they’ve moved out looks really bad.” I went into town for a funeral of all things,” said a crying Leviss. “Well I don’t know, that killed my soul. I’m so sick of lying I hate it. I hate being cheating. It’s terrible.”
Leviss admitted why she originally agreed to lie about the schedule and that Sandoval asked her not to reveal the information. “Right now that I’m so isolated,” she explained, “I feel like Tom is the only person I have and if I had just betrayed him, I really wouldn’t have anyone.”
