While attending the 6th Annual Best Buddies’ Celebration of Mothers event on Saturday, The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills star, 56, spoke with people magazine, about the new season of Vanderpump Rules, and the drama surrounding her son, Oliver Saunders, Media Take Out confirmed.
The 32-year-old became caught up in the affair between Tom Sandoval and Raquel Leviss that ended Tom’s nine-year relationship with Ariana Madix. Before Tom hooked up with Rachel, Oliver was caught on camera making out with Raquel, 28, at a Las Vegas nightclub.
“Obviously, he’s my son. And we don’t always make great decisions. And he was definitely separated at the time,” Garcelle said about her son Oliver, who shares 2-year-old son Oliver Jr. with his ex-wife Samantha Saunders.
Garcelle continued, saying that it “hurts my heart” knowing the interaction between her son and Raquel became a storyline on the hit Bravo series.
“I didn’t watch the episode because I didn’t want to,” explained Garcelle. “But my friends were like… they were mad for me, and they were like, ‘We felt like Oliver was used.’ But Lisa [Vanderpump] has been great, and she stood up for him, and I appreciate that, and we move on.”
Following her November 2021 split from fiancé James Kennedy, Raquel had a steamy encounter with Oliver, which was documented during season 10 of Vanderpump Rules.
Oliver’s then-wife Samantha accused him of cheating on her with the Vanderpump Rules star, among other women, while working at Lisa Vanderpump’s Vanderpump à Paris in Las Vegas. Oliver responded on Instagram, according to the outlet, writing, “I apologize for my Sons Mother Putting My Business Out There. We Are Getting Divorced.”
Viewers watched the drama play out during a March 2023 episode of Vanderpump Rules. Leviss met Oliver while on a girls’ trip to Las Vegas, and the pair ended up making out at a club.
