The Raquel Leviss Puppygate Drama: Explained

Post-Scandoval, Raquel Leviss (who returned to “Rachel” after the scandal) discovered herself involved in another dustup: a custody debate Bravo fans called puppygate. Let me discuss.

A small supporting character in the Vanderpump Rules universe is Leviss’s canine, Graham, a curly-haired pooch she and previous fiancé, James Kennedy, embraced together when they were still in a relationship. After the break up, Leviss got complete custody of Graham and ultimately stopped letting Kennedy see the pet dog completely. (As you might keep in mind, this was the source of some small season 10 stress when Graham got injured at doggy day care and Leviss stopped working to notify Kennedy.)

Fast-forward to July 20, 2023: James is publishing images with Graham to his Instagram with the caption “Look who made his method back home, back into my life, I’ll look after you permanently and I enjoy you. ❤” Meanwhile, a clip of the cast shooting VPR in Lake Tahoe with Graham however without Leviss turned up on the web.

It would appear that Kennedy has actually ended up with Graham after all because, as TMZ reported, Leviss had actually dropped him off at a shelter since of behavioral problems, particularly biting. It does not appear that Leviss herself informed her ex-fiancé where she had actually taken the canine, however when Vanderpump Dog Foundation (Lisa Vanderpump’s pet rescue) discovered the scenario, they assisted schedule Graham to go home with Kennedy. Sources informed TMZ that Kennedy now has Graham in training classes and is satisfied to have him back.

On Sunday, July 23, the DJ shared a photo of his pet dog on Instagram Stories, in addition to a description for a name modification: The pet previously called Graham is now called Hippie, in honor of his late godfather, George Michael. “We’ve chosen to relabel this little charm ‘hippie'” he composed in a caption. “This is a homage to my late godfather, George Michael’s pet’s name … the only canine I saw around your home maturing, although George and hippie remain in paradise now together I understand that they are monitoring me now, a happy doggy papa!” He included a canine emoji and heart emoji.
