“Vanderpump Rules” star Rachel Leviss has filed for a restraining order against her Bravo reality show co-star Scheana Shay, according to Los Angeles County Superior Court documents.
The “Real Housewives of Beverly Hills” spin-off, which debuted in 2013, focused on the restaurant staff at SUR in West Hollywood in its early years. A number of cast members have moved on from the restaurant, but the show still revolves around their antics, misadventures and scandals.

Leviss filed the petition Tuesday and a hearing is scheduled for March 29.
According to TMZunconfirmed rumors suggested that Scheana “reportedly got violent with Raquel (Leviss) over her and Tom’s cheating scandal.”
In the “Vanderpump” lore, Scheana is good friends with Sandoval’s former partner, Ariana Madix.
Madix and Sandoval are said to have split after nearly 10 years after news of the affair. reported the New York Times.
According to the New York Times, the show began with an affair between Scheana and Eddie Cibrian, “Real Housewives” ex-husband Brandi Glanville.
“Vanderpump Rules” is currently airing for its 10th season on Bravo, and the restraining order raises the question of whether and how a planned reunion episode will take place.
