Raquel Leviss is dropping her request for a permanent restraining order against Scheana Shay after being granted a temporary one on March 7.
“I can confirm that my attorney took my case off the court calendar Wednesday and is filing the appropriate paperwork requested by the court today to dismiss the TRO (temporary restraining order) from moving forward after the 29th,” Leviss told Entertainment Tonight on Friday.
Leviss further claimed that her attorney “let the court know” that she will not be going forward with the permanent restraining order (PRO).
It’s unclear when the case for the PRO will officially be dropped since Page Six confirmed that the hearing is still scheduled for March 29, according to the the Los Angeles Superior Court calendar.
“My team tried to work with Scheana on a mutually beneficial agreement hoping to get the TRO dropped earlier so we could film [the ‘Vanderpump Rules reunion’] together,” Leviss, 28, continued, referring to the taping on Thursday.
Leviss claimed that she requested the TRO to give Shay, 37, a “cooling-off period” after the latter allegedly gave her a black eye upon learning of her “full-on affair” with Tom Sandoval. At the time, the singer had been in a nearly 10-year relationship with Shay’s best friend, Ariana Madix.
Leviss doubled down on her claim when she accused Shay of giving her a “permanent scar” on her left eyebrow in a bombshell interview on Wednesday.

“I didn’t want to continue with the permanent RO nor did I want to cause Scheana further agony and stress,” Leviss told the outlet.
Leviss’ rep didn’t immediately return Page Six’s request for comment.
Shay’s attorney, Neama Rahmani, denied that his client hit Leviss and accused her of “sabotaging” the reunion, since they couldn’t directly interact or be within 100 yards of one another.
Page Six previously reported that during the taping, Leviss had host Andy Cohen “serve” Shay with documents that had “no legal meaning” during Shay’s portion of the reunion taping.
“The document was a dismissal form that the court asked us to submit and I wanted to show Scheana my intentions and that we had informed the judge we weren’t moving forward – and it was an explanation at the reunion to alleviate Scheana’s concerns,” Leviss explained to ET.
Rahmani, however, maintained to Page Six on Friday that “there is no way for Rachel to ‘drop’ the temporary restraining order before next week’s hearing” — which is still on the calendar.
“If she wants to make this go away, she can tell everyone that she wasn’t punched and she lied, and that she doesn’t intend to go forward with a permanent restraining order,” Rahmani continued, using Leviss’ legal name.
“That wouldn’t undo the damage she has caused, and she still filed a false police report, but it would go a long way toward resolving the legal issues.”
Page Six confirmed that Shay and Leviss filmed the reunion with the rest of the cast at separate intervals as a result of the temporary restraining order still being in place on Thursday.
