We are into Season 9 of Vanderpump Rules and things look a lot different, yet totally the same. For one thing, Scheana Marie and Lala Kent have babies. This means they’re doing the adulting thing where they don’t scream like children and lose their minds any time someone calls them on their behavior. Oh wait, Lala isn’t doing any of that! She just likes to tell people that she’s totally changed since becoming a mom.
Tom Schwartz is another one who doesn’t seem to ever change. Tom 2 is somehow continuing to fail upward, opening a new restaurant with Tom Sandoval that won’t be called Schwartz and Sandy’s. How this man gets free opportunities all the time in spite of having zero drive, life skills, or sense of accountability is beyond me. And by some miracle, he and Katie Maloney-Schwartz are still married and supposedly trying for a baby. Because that’s what all their friends are doing.
Tom decided to poke fun at this fact on Instagram, which is always a good idea. Schwartz posted a picture of Katie standing between Lala and Stassi Schroeder who were holding their baby girls. In the caption, he wrote, “I said, ‘Bub where’s yours?’ She said [unamused emoji face].”
None of us know for sure where Tom and Katie stand on the baby thing. Maybe they’re really trying and it’s taking longer than they thought it would or maybe they actually don’t want kids. Hear me out – remember in the season premier when Katie went to Lala’s, and she was gushing over her baby girl’s outfit? Clock Katie’s face. It could read two ways: 1) she’s sad because she doesn’t have a baby yet or 2) she could give a crap about babies. But I digress.
Fans are taking Tom 2 to task and rallying around Katie in the comments section of this Instagram post. Here’s the general consensus of what people are saying: “Ooft this caption sucks,” “Caption is yikes,” “Wow…that’s rude to say to her,” and simply, “that’s not nice.”
Others are “Waiting for him to change the caption in ….3…2…1….” While many more people are taking this seriously, pointing out Tom’s terribly flawed thinking. “Not funny. I don’t see how this is funny,” “If you’re struggling to conceive, that’s super insensitive,” which yes, it definitely is! One person even pointed out that, “This isn’t the caption you think it is. During pregnancy and infant loss awareness month. Do better, Schwartz.” Wow, seriously do better and practice awareness.
Other commenters kept it light, “she will be a great mom when the time is right!” While some kept things direct: “Cute pic, joke sucks,” “Dick,” and “He’s such an immature and thoughtless ASS!” Have to say, I agree with this commenter on so many levels.

Finally though, Kristen “Suck a dick” Doute commented, “this is cuuuute,” while her boyfriend, Alex Menache aptly chimed in with, “Narrator: ‘it was at this moment, Thomas had knew he had fucked up.’” But it’s Schwartz. When he messes up, he walks away unscathed because he’s perfected that dopey, quiet, nice guy shtick.
