After a very rocky Season 5, things are going a lot better for Katie Maloney and Tom Schwartz this year on Vanderpump Rules. Just like everyone else in the cast, they’ve had their own drama to deal with, but that’s utter child’s play in comparison to past seasons with drink throwing, rings on strings, and rage texting.
Even with a significant dip in the Tom and Katie drama, there are other cast members coming through with the public fights this season. We were blessed with James Kennedy and Lala Kent screaming at each other, storming out of a restaurant, and continuing the argument on the sidewalk just because Lala ate some pasta.
During an interview for Bravo’s The Daily Dish podcast, Mr. and Mrs. Schwartz were asked if they watch the show together. Immediately, Tom answered, “No way. There’s no chance of that.” That’s pretty surprising. Minus those episodes about Tom forgetting a drunken make out with a stranger, it’s a pretty good season for the two of them as a couple.
Katie shared, “He doesn’t really watch. I’ll make him watch certain scenes or stuff that he may want to see, but it gives him like anxiety, I think.” Tom explained, “Hearing our voices play back through the TV and seeing myself, I love myself, but seeing myself on TV, I just tend to tear myself apart.”
Katie admitted, “I actually just really enjoyed watching as a viewer. I mean, the pasta scene, that is some of the best television, I’ve seen.” I couldn’t agree more. Tom chimed in with, “It was almost too good. It was perfect: everything about it.” Once again, I can’t help but concur.
Katie even said, “James has just been hilarious”- which has pretty much always been the case, but I guess it’s easier to notice now that he is on better terms with people in the cast. Tom gave credit where credit is due: “James and Lala have been on fire this season.” Yes, they have.
Tom said, “I’ve warmed up to them so much and I’ve gotten to know them better. I’ve fallen for both of them now.” Same, Tom. Tom added, “They’ve come into their own.” Katie agreed and said, “There’s also been a lot of growth, I think.”
