Tom Schwartz and New Girlfriend Sophia Skoro ‘Definitely Love Each Other’

If anyone’s holding out hope on a Tom Schwartz and Katie Maloney rekindling this season on Vanderpump Rules, don’t. It’s not going to be your day, your week, your month, or even your year when it comes to this matter. For her part, Katie’s out there looking for someone who not only loves her but who also likes her. As for Tom, he’s officially-ish moving on with his new beau, Sophia Skoro, and they already “definitely love each other.”

What is love? Tommy don’t hurt me, Sophia

Mr. Aw Shucks and Sophia just joined Tom’s buddy Nick Viall over on his podcast, The Viall Files. At first, the hosts joked about kidnapping Sophia at the Neon Carnival, just to get her to appear on their podcast. Then, they asked her how many wisdom teeth she’d had removed. “Both of them,” she replied, as the good-natured laughs rolled in, chiding “all four?”

At this, Tom took the jokes off Sophia’s back by putting himself down. “On a scale from 1 to 10, how embarrassed are you to be hanging out with Tom Schwartz?’ he asked his lady friend. “He’s a little bit self-deprecating because he’s so humble,” she explained. Also, for the record, Sophia says that she’s not sure yet if she’ll film for VPR. For now, she’s just “taking things day by day.”

Moving on, Nick asked the pair if they were officially together. In reply, Tom smiled and extended his arm out to Sophia, motioning for her to answer. “It’s one of those things where we’re almost, but I feel like, I just want to be in the most perfect place. I like to be very at ease,” Sophia explained.

Finding his voice, Tom added that he didn’t “want to put pressure on her,” but he did admit that “we enjoy our time together.” He also stated that he’s “happy,” and that he finally feels like he’s lighter. The largest reveal though came when Sophia admitted that they “definitely love each other.” To note, Sophia will be working with her man on his fashion choices, but she won’t be changing him because she wants him to stay true to himself.


Vanderpump Rules Season 11 continues without Sophia on Tuesdays at 8/7c on Bravo.
