The 31-year-old also admitted that he supported costar Scheana Shay after rumors swirled the reality star physically attacked Leviss after she found out about the bombshell affair.

"Yep, she knows well," Kennedy said, but noted, "I don't know much about it because I've not been able to speak to Scheana in person."

As for Kennedy's other opinions on the scandal aptly dubbed the Scandoval, the Bravolebrity teased, "everyone has to wait for the reunion to hear what I have to say."

"It's gonna be very interesting," he added. "Everyone's gotta watch it to see what happens."

As Sandoval and Leviss continue to find themselves in hot water with both fans and costars for their illicit relationship that reportedly began last summer, a source dished the lovebirds are staying strong, sharing that they are "the real deal."

"They have confided to pals that it’s love and they have fallen hard for each other," the source spilled at the time. "It’s no excuse for what they did and the people they hurt, but they see a long-term future together. Only time will tell if their bond can survive the backlash."
