Tom Schwartz Is Still Wearing His Wedding Ring After Splitting From Katie Maloney

I must admit that I was a little sad when I heard that Vanderpump Rules stars Katie Maloney and Tom Schwartz had called it quits. They were the last original couple left from the “OG” cast members. But there were plenty of signs that this relationship wasn’t destined to last forever.

Pump Rules stars Katie and Tom announced that they were breaking up on March 15, 2022. Tom posted a three-slide message on his Instagram. “Well this sucks. How am I supposed to capture 12 years of love in a f–kin canned Instagram caption,” he wrote. “Katie & I are separating. I’m not quite ready to use the ‘D’ word because it’s too painful.”

Tom continued, “Fully respect[s] Katie’s decision and we’ve had healthy, productive conversations about it. It would be far sadder if she decided to stay with me whilst not happy.” Tom’s post was so sad.

“I don’t think we were ever a model couple. Maybe we are model divorcees,” Tom said. “So, I’ll shut up now and say it one last time, love you Bub. Always & forever you’ll be in my heart.”

Katie shared a message on her Instagram as well. “I never thought I would have to make an announcement like this. But I feel it’s important that I’m open about my life with you. After 12 years on an adventure through our life together Tom and I are ending our marriage,” Katie wrote. “This ending is not met with resentment or animosity, no sides to choose.” Katie’s looking at you, Lala Kent.

She added, “We have deep admiration for one another that will always remain, and we cherish our friendship. Although we may be on different paths we will continue to love and support one another’s happiness.” It looks like the Pump Rules cast is supporting both Katie and Tom during this difficult time, and they flooded their Instagram comments with love.

Page Six reported that Tom was spotted out still wearing his wedding ring on March 16, 2022. He was photographed getting into his car in Los Angeles, still sporting the symbol of their marriage. Poor Tom.

The couple survived Tom’s cheating scandals and Katie’s tequila-fueled outbursts. Last season on VPR, the couple was trying to get pregnant. And Tom’s bestie, Tom Sandoval, was feuding with Katie about her involvement in the Toms’ new bar. It was infuriating how Tom refused to stand up for his wife, and it caused Tom and Sandoval to take a friendship break.

Tom and Katie actually tied the knot twice. The duo got married in August of 2016 in an enchanted woodland ceremony. Apparently, there was a snafu with the paperwork, and it turned out that the first wedding wasn’t legal. Oopsy! So, Katie and Tom headed to Las Vegas to walk down the aisle again in July of 2019. This time, Sandoval and Stassi Schroeder were the officiants, dressed as Elvis and a sexy nun.

Maybe the marriage license issue was a sign? I’m hoping that the couple can remain friends. And I’ll bet that Sandoval is doing his happy dance right about now.
