4:18 PM PT -- Lisa Vanderpump says folks need to ease up on Raquel, and she's concerned about Raquel's mental health.
We got Lisa in Los Angeles on Friday and our photog broke the news to her about Raquel checking in to a mental health facility.
Lisa says she's going to get on the phone to make some calls about the situation, and in the meantime she's hoping folks back off ... because the "Scandoval" seems to be taking a toll on Raquel.
11:50 AM PT -- Scheana Shay's attorney has inserted Scheana into the situation, telling TMZ, "We’re happy that she [Raquel] is getting the treatment she needs but none of this changes the fact that she abused the justice system to put forth false allegations against Scheana and she has never to this day publicly come out and apologized for all her lies.”
“We obviously recognize mental health is an important issue and wish Rachel all the best in her recovery, but we’d also like her to own up to her false allegations and publicly come out and acknowledge that she lied.”
Clearly the drama between these two runs deep.
Raquel Leviss is getting treatment at a mental health facility on the heels of her affair with Tom Sandoval going public.
TMZ has confirmed the "Vanderpump Rules" star recently checked herself in.
ET, who was the first to report the story, says Raquel made the decision with her family to seek treatment. What's interesting is ... she reportedly made that decision before the so-called "Scandoval" became a thing.
A source claims she had planned to start the treatment before the reunion taping last month, but decided to officially wrap up the season before going. It's unclear what kind of treatment she's getting, but a rep for Raquel tells TMZ ... "she isn't there for rehab, but rather mental health and trauma therapy."
TMZ broke the story ... Raquel and Tom were together behind Ariana Madix's back for quite some time, but it all came to the surface last month when Ariana found sexual texts exchanged between the duo.
Since then Tom and Raquel have been dragged through the mud, in public, and at the taping for the 'VR' reunion ... and as we reported, things were so tense things almost got physical between some cast members.
We've also learned Raquel spent time with Tom in his hometown around the holidays -- while he was still dating Ariana, which is why his family didn't want to meet her.
