I can’t believe I’m saying this, but I was actually pretty moved by Katie Maloney and Tom Schwartz wedding. I know we didn’t even get to the actual vows part yet, but it was so sweet when Jax Taylor and Tom Sandoval surprised Schwartz by flying out his triplet brothers to attend the wedding.
It was really nice, but a lot of the viewers were so confused by the couple spending so much money on towel invitations and flower arrangements instead of paying for his family to attend the event. Still, this is a way nicer criticism than the hate the couple has faced all season in response to their drunken arguments.

Tom and Katie addressed this during their appearance on Watch What Happens Live. Schwartz told Andy Cohen, “I just want to go on the record and say I had no idea how much she was spending on flowers and she paid for the flowers actually, but yeah it’s a bad look and our budget was already spread so thin. They couldn’t get off work too. It was complicated.” It’s hard for me to get mad at Schwartz (not that I actually know him), but I just don’t totally get that. Although I obviously don’t know the specifics of their schedules and financial situation.
Katie said, “I paid for some of my family travel and I was just swamped with preparation and everything. It was so stressful. I could not have switched focus for like five minutes.” I feel like if anyone should have budgeted for the triplets to be present, it should have been Schwartz instead of Katie, but obviously it all worked out for everyone.
Speaking of Schwartz’s financial situation, a caller asked Schwartz if he has another job aside from doing the show and he admitted, “I used to do commercials with modeling, but with the show I don’t have a lot of time to do anything else. Is that a lame answer?” Andy confirmed, “Yeah.”
Aside from those awkward conversations, Tom actually had something super sweet to say when a caller asked him about the point he knew he would go through with the marriage. He said, “I know it looks rough and the seas were choppy. I know it sounds a little cliche, but I had this moment where a breeze blew in the window and I was watching her sleep and I was like ‘I love this girl and I’m going to marry her.”
Andy asked if “Tequila Katie or Tequila Tom made an appearance” since Schwartz and Katie got married, which is something we all wanted to know. They both said “No” about Tequila Tom. As far as Tequila Katie goes, Schwartz revealed, “I’ve seen a glimpse, but she hasn’t reared her full.” And Katie said, “Tequila Katie can also be fun to be around” which Andy (and the viewers) definitely did not believe.
Andy asked the duo if they had sex on their wedding night and (unfortunately) Tom revealed, “She passed out in our little cottage and I passed out on the stoop of the main house.”
Aside from talking about their own relationship, they discussed Scheana Marie Shay and Mike Shay. They didn’t reveal too much except for the fact that Shay actually appeared to to make tape the reunion, which I think is very surprising since he’s been notably absent all season.
Even Andy admitted, “It was very heavy at the reunion when Shay came. That was one of the most awkward things I’ve ever been in the middle of.” All Schwartz had to add was the word “palpable.” Katie recalled, “I remember it just being like silence. We had not stopped talking and all of sudden you could hear a pin drop.” I cannot wait to see all of that go down.
