Kristen Doute is adamant that Scheana Shay “didn’t hit” Raquel Leviss after finding out she was having a months-long affair with their co-star Tom Sandoval.
One week after Leviss filed for a restraining order against Shay for the alleged assault, Doute set the record straight on a “Viall Files” episode.
“I know Scheana was pissed off, but … Scheana can not punch someone no matter how mad she is,” the “Vanderpump Rules” alum, 40, claimed Thursday.
“She waves a buck five, and her nails are longer than her fingers,” Doute continued. “It’s just bulls–t.”
The former reality star admitted that Shay, 37, “possibly pushed” Leviss, 28, and “maybe scratched her with a nail.”
Doute gushed, “I applaud her if she did. I got backhanded by Stassi [Schroeder], well-deserved, [in 2014], and did you see me pressing charges?”
She advised Leviss to “grow up,” adding, “She didn’t break your bones.”
Doute went on to express doubt about the bruised eye Leviss photographed in her legal filing earlier this month, claiming that one of her eyes has “always … been a lot darker underneath.”
As for the scratch, she compared it to someone taking “red lip liner and [drawing] a line.”
Doute joked that the alleged injury “healed up quickly” when Leviss was photographed for the first time post-“Scandoval” with “no marks on her face.”
Page Six reported on March 4 that Leviss got into a “heated” confrontation with Shay when her affair with Sandoval came to light after their “Watch What Happens Live” appearance.
In her social media apology to Sandoval’s ex-girlfriend Ariana Madix, Leviss claimed she had been “physically assaulted” in the wake of the infidelity.
Shay, meanwhile, has denied punching her former friend via her lawyer, Neama Rahmani.

The duo’s hearing over the restraining order is set for March 29, six days after the Bravo cast is supposed to reunite for the show’s reunion — which is why Doute believes Leviss’ legal action to be “bulls–t.”
Doute explained, “How convenient that she get this ridiculous temporary restraining order against Scheana. … How convenient that Raquel now does not have to sit under those hot lights and be on the hot seat.
“I think it’s really f–king convenient and it’s Raquel’s way of getting out of it,” she continued.
However, Andy Cohen told his SiriusXM listeners last week that the reunion will be “great,” even hinting at doing “one-offs” with Leviss and Shay as a “hypothetical” solution.
Shay’s lawyer told Page Six Wednesday that Leviss’ actions are “sabotaging” the reunion.
“It just can’t happen in any meaningful way while this order is in place,” Rahmani explained. “There really is no mechanism to modify this.”
“Vanderpump Rules” airs Wednesdays at 9 p.m. ET on Bravo.
