Lance Bass Apologizes For Spilling The Tea That Tom Schwartz & Katie Maloney’s Marriage Isn’t Legal

There seems to be a lot of legal drama around the Los Angeles Bravolebrities these days. You’ve got the Real Housewives of Beverly Hills ladies and their myriad of issues. Then you’ve got the Vanderpump Rules crew, whose legal woes are not quite at the same level of RHOBH grifters stars. But just give it some time. Lala Kent and Randall Emmett are bound to have something up their sleeves. Just ask fofty.

Still, there are some recent issues. Jax Taylor allegedly owed a large amount in back taxes. Then Lisa Vanderpump’s bestie, Lance Bass, dropped the bomb that Tom Schwartz and Katie Maloney are not legally married because they didn’t send in the right materials. I’m sure this caused Tequila Katie to come out of the shadows and rage text Lance all hours of the night to drop it and apologize. Unfortunately, the apology they received might not be what they had hoped for.

Us Weekly reported that Lance went on an episode of Strahan and Sara and apologized about letting it slip regarding Tom and Katie’s marriage. He said, “I didn’t know it was a secret.” Looks like Lance is sticking with his story. Sorry, Katie and Tom!

Lance also said he, “Spilled the tea.” That’s an understatement. Doesn’t he realize he’s pretty much guaranteed viewers yet another season of angry Katie? Sigh.

He continued, ”I don’t know reality television like that. I apologize, I’m sorry.” I find it hard to believe Lance doesn’t know how reality TV works. He must have at least seen a little something when he officiated Jax and Brittany Cartwright’s wedding. Because you know those cameras were front and center.

Lance added, “You’ll just have to watch [Vanderpump Rules]. You’ll have to see the show to see what really happens.” This whole thing seems a bit meta. Did Lance pretend to “spill the tea” in order for Katie and Tom to have a storyline next season? Or, was it an honest mistake?

And if this is true, I don’t understand how Katie did not send in the proper materials. Girlfriend was obsessed with getting married. And we all know there’s no way Tom could be in charge of them. The poor guy can barely get dressed in the morning.

I guess we’ll have to listen to Lance and watch Pump Rules to find out the truth. But I really hope that Tom and Katie have a more interesting storyline than this next season.
