Raquel Leviss has reportedly checked out of the mental health facility she’s called home for the past two months.

The “Vanderpump Rules” star, 28, left The Meadows in Wickenburg, Ariz., a week ago with a $200,000 bill, TMZ reported Friday.

Per the outlet, Leviss has been staying with a friend since then and is anxious about venturing back out into the world.

A source who allegedly spent time with the former beauty pageant queen upon her exit from the treatment center claims, “She is like a totally different person.”

Her rep has not yet responded to our numerous requests for comment.

However, a source exclusively told Page Six earlier this week that Leviss has been “playing hardball” with Bravo execs regarding the salary portion of her contract for “Pump Rules” Season 11, which began production last week.

“She wants to get as much money as she possibly can,” the insider explained.

Our source went on to say that the expectation is for Leviss and the network to reach “a deal” before the cast embarks on a trip to Lake Tahoe, Calif., next week.

“For the right price, she will be there,” the insider insisted, cautioning that Leviss is “genuinely concerned for her well-being” as she re-enters the group.

“Watching the [Season 10] reunion was excruciating,” our source shared. “The way the other women just completely tore her apart and essentially wished her dead — it was just a lot to take.”

Leviss checked herself into the mental health facility in mid-April after filming the extremely contentious three-part reunion, during which her castmates crucified her for her part in Scandoval.

News broke in early March that Ariana Madix had dumped Tom Sandoval after nine years of dating upon learning of his months-long affair with Leviss, who had been a close friend to both.

Several days later, Leviss issued a public apology to Madix, her friends and the fans, admitting that she had an “addiction to being and feeling loved” and displayed “patterns of codependency.”

“I have sought emotional validation through intimate connections that are not healthy without regard for my own well-being, sometimes negatively affecting others and often prioritizing the intimate connection over my friendships,” her statement read in part.

“I have begun counseling to end my unhealthy behavioral cycle, learn to set stronger boundaries and learn to protect my mental health.”
