Tom Schwartz Opens About Cheating On Katie Maloney And Denies Drinking Problem

This season of Vanderpump Rules has been one of the weirdest to watch. There are cheating scandals galore, but they seem to be brushed off too quickly by all involved. Katie Maloney found out that husband Tom Schwartz got wasted and made out with another girl, but she’s already moved past it and claims she has total faith in him. In a new interview, they opened up about the messy situation.

Tom says that he’s mortified by his behavior, “First of all, I don’t even know how that happened and it’s so regrettable, I’m so embarrassed. It’s like, especially for my age and maybe if I was single and 22, that would be OK. No, then it’s definitely OK. But as a married man.. It’s easy for me to make light of the situation but knowing that I hurt someone I love so much, it’s really embarrassing. I think it’s not that big of a deal in the big scope of things, but it’s still completely unacceptable and really douchey.”

Schwartz is adamant that his drinking isn’t out of control, despite blacking out and making out with a woman who wasn’t his new wife. He tells Us Mag, “I don’t have a drinking problem, I’m not in denial or anything. I’m a very well-balanced human being in general, but with drinking I do have a tendency to push it to the extreme. I don’t drink frequently, but when I do, I love shots.” He admits he needs to stop the shots,  “I got to chill with the shots, but I’m a great drinker, I can hold my alcohol. Well, most of the time.”

Katie insists that she trusts Tom completely despite the screw up – and even ponders if the other girl maybe persuaded him a bit (if he even did it at all). She declared, “I do trust him. Yeah, I generally think that if he did in fact make out with this person that he doesn’t remember, that it was just simply because he was blackout drunk. Who knows, maybe there was a little persuasion on the other end of things. I don’t know.”
