Scheana Shay plans on showing up to the “Vanderpump Rules” Season 10 reunion despite co-star Raquel Leviss obtaining a restraining order against her.
“I mean, as far as I know, I’m fully intending on being there in person,” Shay said in Friday’s episode of her Dear Media podcast, “Scheananigans.”
The “Good as Gold” singer admitted she has “no say” over the logistics of the reunion, which is scheduled to be filmed next Thursday.
Shay also shared that she has not been told whether she or Leviss will have to appear virtually, as her attorney previously suggested.
“That is not up to me whatsoever,” she emphasized. “I wanna make that very clear.”
Shay, 37, stayed tight-lipped about the restraining order on her podcast, but she pointed out to listeners that she and Leviss, 28, had been on good terms just days before the former pageant queen went to court to seek legal protection from her.
“Up until we did ‘Watch What Happens Live,’ her mom was texting me about how we should dress up like pumpkin pie and cotton candy and wear orange and pink and make fun of the things we were called on the show this season,” Shay shared.
The duo had a full day of press interviews on March 1 — including stops at “WWHL” and Page Six’s office — but that night, their castmate Ariana Madix learned Leviss was having an affair with her boyfriend of nearly 10 years, Tom Sandoval.
Sources told Page Six at the time that Shay and Leviss got into a “heated confrontation” that evening after Shay found out about the “Scandoval.”
Leviss requested the restraining order on March 7, alleging in court documents obtained by us that Shay had punched her, leaving her with a bruised eye.
Shay’s lawyer denied that his client hit Leviss, claiming in a statement to Page Six, “The supposed dark markings around [Leviss’] left eye have been there for months.”
Shay’s friends and co-stars have also come to her defense.
“I know Scheana was pissed off, but … Scheana cannot punch someone no matter how mad she is,” former “Pump Rules” cast member Kristen Doute said in Thursday’s episode of the “Viall Files” podcast. “It’s just bulls–t.”
A court hearing regarding the restraining order is set for March 29, six days after the reunion taping.

Page Six confirmed on March 3 that Madix, 37, dumped Sandoval, 40, after finding out he and Leviss had been entangled in a months-long affair.
Sources told us Madix saw a sexually explicit video of Leviss on Sandoval’s phone and then found out that the secret lovers had been “communicating inappropriately” since about July 2022.
Madix spoke out about the dalliance for the first time Thursday.
“I am so f–king lucky to have the best support system in the world and i hope i can repay every single person for the love you have shown me,” she captioned a photo of herself in a revenge dress during a getaway to Mexico for a friend’s wedding.
Prior to Madix’s Instagram post, both Sandoval and Leviss issued separate apologies on social media. Neither has addressed the current status of their relationship.
“Vanderpump Rules” airs Wednesdays at 9 p.m. ET on Bravo.
