Rachel "Raquel" Leviss says she has "a lot" of regrets about her time on Vanderpump Rules and that she "would do everything differently if I had the chance to go back."

"I really just wanna acknowledge that a lot of people were believing in me and I feel like I was a disappointment to those people," she told Bethenny Frankel on The Real Housewives of New York City alum's Just B podcast. "I know that there was a lot of trust that was broken between friendships and betrayal that happened."

She added, "I look back at my actions and I’m disappointed in myself as well. That is not the person that I want to be. I wasn’t happy. I was really hurting."

Leviss, 28, also told Frankel, 52, she didn’t "ever want to be in a place like that again, and I will make sure that I don’t put myself in a situation like that again."

In part 1 of her visit on Frankel's podcast, the former SUR waiter hinted that she had decided not to return to the Bravo reality show when she mentioned that she "almost went back" to film for season 11.

A source then told Entertainment Tonight that she "ultimately decided against it" to stay "focused on her mental health journey."

Leviss made headlines in March when her months-long affair with costar Tom Sandoval, 40, became public, breaking his nine-year relationship with Leviss's friend and castmate Ariana Madix, 38.
