On an August episode of Scheana Shay’s Scheananigans podcast, Schwartz teased the idea of a connection with Leviss, 28, after his split from Maloney — and Leviss’ wrecked engagement to James Kennedy. “I was so caught up in my own little world and I was married [to Maloney],” Schwartz said. “I never found opportunity to get to know Raquel.”

He added, “She was always cool. I simply never really carved out opportunity to invest in her — wait, that’s a terrible way to phrase it.

I never really gave her a chance,” noting he “thought of her off.”
