This season of Vanderpump Rules resulted in an uncharacteristically happy ending (or beginning!) for Tom Schwartz and Katie Maloney, who celebrated their engagement at Lisa Vanderpump’s Villa Rosa during the final episode. While Tom describes the celebration as a “fantasy,” it turned into a bit of a nightmare when the ghosts-of-hot-messes-past arrived in the form of Kristen Doute and Stassi Schroeder.
Tom says he wasn’t ruffled by Kristen and Stassi’s entrance, though! He says the event “was a nice healthy mix of excitement, joy, and anticipation heading into the engagement party. I was being cheap at first but eventually loosened the purse strings.”

“Having my mom there was a dream come true! Honestly the whole thing felt like a fantasy,” blogs Tom. “There were moments where it was a pain in the ass, but still fantasy land.”
Was this “fantasy land” tainted by Stassi and Kristen crashing? Nah. Tom admits he kind of expected this sort of behavior from the two of them. “If I’m being totally honest I was not surprised they showed up. Doute never lets a little thing like not being invited stop her and I personally invited Stassi, so yeah. I was happy to have them there! I’m a lover.”
Decidedly NOT lovers are James Kennedy and Jax Taylor, who used VPR’s final episode to beat their chests and howl at each other…as lower primates tend to do. Tom admits the two will never, ever be friends.
He explains, “Jax and James are archenemies. Jax just straight up hates that guy and, honestly, I don’t blame him. James is obnoxious as hell. Jax doesn’t do himself any favors in regards to squashing though. He instigated too. I don’t hate James though; he’s got some positive aspects to him.”
Positive? Like, as in, medical test results? Not sure James did himself any favors this season in the “positive aspects” department! But Schwartzy, as Lisa might say, is a sweetie for claiming so.
