Raquel Leviss has revealed she’s taking a step back from Tom Sandoval days after their months-long affair was exposed, RadarOnline.com has learned.

She added, “Knowing how many people we hurt, I need to understand my choices and learn to make better ones. I need to take care of my health, work on self-growth and take time to be ok with being alone. I care for Tom, and I don’t want to label anything or predict what lies ahead. Right now, I need to heal.”

Raquel was spotted out for the first time yesterday looking somber as the backlash against her grows. As RadarOnline.com previously reported, last week, Tom’s girlfriend Ariana Madix found inappropriate videos of Raquel on his phone.

For his part, Tom apologized to Ariana via a public statement on Instagram. He said, “I want to first and foremost apologize to everyone I’ve hurt through this process. Most of all, I want to apologize to Ariana. I made mistakes, I was selfish, and made reckless decisions that hurt somebody I love. No one deserves to feel that pain so traumatically and publicly.”

“I can only imagine how devastating this has been for Ariana and everyone around us,” he added. “I feel really horrible about that. My biggest regret is that I dishonored Ariana. I never meant to disappoint so many people, including our loving families and friends.”
