“Vanderpump Rules” star Peter Madrigal clapped back at Raquel Leviss’ comment that he was a “great starter pony” when she got back into the dating scene after ending her engagement to James Kennedy.
Days after the former pageant queen was embroiled in a cheating scandal with her co-star Tom Sandoval, Madrigal reacted to her remarks about the few dates he and Leviss went on in 2022.
In a March 13, 2023 interview on the “Behind the Velvet Rope with David Yontef” podcast, Madrigal revealed he was “upset” that he was made fun of on TV. “I don’t tolerate that s***,” he told Yontef. “It’s like, yeah, well, you know, who the hell are you to call me a starter pony?”
Leviss has been hit with major backlash amid the cheating scandal due to the fact that she was close friends with Sandoval’s now-ex, Ariana Madix.
“I probably would’ve defended her more had she not come in like, ‘oh yeah, he’s a starter pony.’ Madrigal said. “You know, just kind of dismissing me. It’s like, yeah, well, why would I have to defend someone like that? You know what I mean? That’s not cool. …I’ve already been insulted by this …I’ve nothing left to say to this person, you know?”
“Name calling,” he added. “I don’t tolerate that. We’re not in high school. You can be like, ‘oh, yeah, he was a good guy, but I just wasn’t into it.’ No, starter pony.”
Madrigal was also angry with Leviss while speaking on the “Alison Rosen Is Your New Best Friend” podcast. “I’m nobody’s starter pony,” he said. “Go f*** yourself. I always keep an even keel, but my God. Who the hell do you think you are? Who the f***k do you think you are?”
