“Tom couldn’t find Raquel for several days,” an insider said. “He asked mutual acquaintances if they had heard of her, but he was unlucky. He cannot contact her.

Another source adds, “She completely ignored Tom.”

Representatives for Leviss and Sandoval did not respond to Page Six’s requests for comment on the pair’s lack of communication.

Despite the kiss, the couple’s relationship status is “complicated,” an insider noted.

A rep for the Tom Sandoval & the Most Extras singer previously told us he exited the building through a private entrance after filming wrapped.

The day before, Sandoval and Madix, 37, sat down to discuss his infidelity for a scene filmed last Friday at the exes’ shared home in the Valley Village enclave of Los Angeles. (Both parties still live there as they navigate their separation.)

Sources tell us that Madix left the conversation feeling “enlightened” by Sandoval, who was romantically involved with Leviss last summer.

Sandoval was romantically involved with Leviss last summer as cameras began rolling for season 10 of “VPR.”

“He gave her multiple excuses as to why he never got around to cheating,” an insider said, adding that “he didn’t tell her about the Leviss affair because he was worried about the impact it would have on his mental health.”

Madix was “heartbroken” and “blindsided” when she learned of the affair after a sexually explicit video sent by Leviss appeared on Sandoval’s phone, a source told Page Six.

The unfortunate discovery came the same night Madix supported Sandoval at a gig for his cover band at TomTom in West Hollywood on March 1.

Sources previously told Page Six that the couple kissed on camera in their first post-“Scandoval” scene.

Madix has yet to publicly address the issue.

Leviss issued a public apology to Madix on Wednesday, attributing his indiscretions to an apparent “love” addiction. Meanwhile, Sandoval – who dated Madix for nearly a decade – took five days to deliver a meaningful apology that fans deemed too little, too late.

Madix, for his part, has yet to address the issue publicly.

However, her Something About Her costar and business partner Katie Maloney recently told fans that the blonde beauty was “overwhelmed” with the public’s support.

“Vanderpump Rules” airs Wednesdays at 9 p.m. ET on Bravo.
