Vanderpump Rules: Katie Maloney Calls Tom Schwartz’s Love Life Toxic
Thinking back to her split from Tom Schwartz on the you will love me podcast, Vanderpump Rules‘ Katie Maloney has revealed that she and her ex at one point discussed how they were going to date once they were no longer together.
“The only thing Tom and I talked about was just, like, maybe we’re not dating in our friend group,” Katie told her guest, summer houseit’s Lindsay Hubbard. Then, seemingly referencing rumors that Tom and Raquel Leviss are “kissing” at Scheana Shay and Brock Davies’ August wedding in Mexico, Katie added, “It’s one thing when you’ve been, for the whole from the group of friends, you “I’ve been in a relationship and married. Then to break up and then start dating in that group, it’s just kind of toxic.”
Tom and Raquel haven’t said they’re dating or even confirmed they’re together – although Raquel admitted in October that they “have a loving and friendly, light-hearted and fun little connection” – but speculation continues. are intensified after James Kennedy called the team up at BravoCon 2022.
Her comments came when Andy Cohen asked Raquel if, post-breakup, she was already “nervous” about James and Lala Kent “maybe rekindling things”. Raquel replied, “I don’t know, for some reason I kind of sent the idea to James and Lala.”
James’ answer? “Now she says that after she, like, went out with Peter [Madrigal] and Schwartz. Like, cool.”
Raquel and Tom both laughed at the remark at the time, but Tom later admitted that he “sort of stopped” because it was so “awkward”. As for Peter, Raquel previously confirmed that she actually dated him earlier this year.
That wasn’t the only drama to come out of BravoCon 2022, though. Raquel opted to wear a Tom Tom sweatshirt while attending a few of the weekend’s events, and Katie later called her “a fan girl” as a result. An online back-and-forth between Katie and Raquel ensued, and Tom himself recently weighed in on the matter.
“I stay out of it,” he said. “I care a lot about Raquel and Katie is my girlfriend. I love her. We spent over a quarter of my life together so I have a lot of respect and love for her. But she can be very reactive and I haven’t had much time to process that yet.”
Lindsay also weighed in on Katie’s podcast, admitting she was “shocked” by Raquel’s decision to wear the sweatshirt. “She knew you were going to be there, she knew Tom Schwartz was going to be there,” Lindsay told Katie. “I just think it was a bit of a slap in the face. Like showing up to an event with you on purpose. What was the point of that? What kind of message are you trying to send, showing up in your sweater? ‘ex-husband ?”
