The Vanderpump Rules duo Katie Maloney and Tom Schwartz made their separation announcement back in March.
The couple swiftly changed their minds after initially claiming they had no plans to formally split. Now that Katie filed, their marriage is formally finished. Tom has even moved on with one of their co-stars since the two sold their Valley Village home!
So Who Got What in Their Split?
Katie Maloney and Tom Schwartz’s divorce has reportedly been finalized, according to Page Six!
After six years of marriage, Katie filed for divorce from her spouse back in March. On October 12, their case was concluded without a disagreement.
The two also reached a private understanding over how they would divide their joint assets, which included their home. The couple left their $2 million Valley Village property, which was later sold.
Even though they are no longer a couple, the drama surrounding their divorce will be covered in Vanderpump Rules season 10! Recall that on March 15, the couple posted an Instagram announcement of their separation.
A source informed The Sun that the couple “had split and gotten back together” after the news of the announcement broke. No, they are not currently dating. She is currently acting independently, they told the site.
“They switch sides. Due to their shared friend networks, they remain friendly and continue to see each other and attend the same events, but they only pay attention to themselves.
Many followers thought there was a chance of reconciliation because they were hesitant to file for divorce. However, on March 22, 2022, at the Los Angeles Superior Court, Katie formally filed for divorce a few times after making her declaration.
Later, Katie talked about the breakup on the We Met At Acme episode from April 10. The reality star was questioned by host Lindsey Metselaar on a variety of topics, including “what caused her divorce, when she knew it was over if there were red flags she ignored, the final straw, why she and Tom are still living together if they can stay friends, what she is looking for in a partner now, and more!”
“We didn’t start dating straight away when we first met, which was in May or June of 2010. For a few months, we kind of kept it [casual], Katie said at the start of the interview. “And after that, yep, I proposed to him… I believe we both caught feelings because I knew. Even though neither of us wanted to date, we had feelings.
She claimed that although they had both built barriers between them so as not to injure one another, after moving in together, she gave him a marriage deadline.
As she put it, “I felt like he was always really commitment-phobic in ways, so I offered him the famous ultimatum.” And I wanted to follow natural progressions; getting married was something I had always wanted. And he was misbehaving.
So I said, “You know, it’s time to make the actual commitment…” Naturally, I am the one who has now requested a divorce. Thus, it’s amusing how life operates.

“I came to the realization that I needed to actually start putting my happiness and well-being first. It simply had to occur… It had been building up for months. Simply put, I felt cut off. She said on the show, “I felt like I was drifting further and more away.
The VPR star, however, acknowledged that she believed she had chosen well when she wed Tom.
“I genuinely believed that we could pull it off. I felt like we had grown together and that we had overcome a lot,” she remarked. “And I was extremely optimistic that we would keep developing together. I reasoned that I had erred as well as he had, that patience is a virtue, and that we both had made mistakes.
Katie continued, “I felt like I couldn’t blame Tom for his mistakes since I had mine too,” although she later acknowledged that she might have been feeling insecure at the time. She guessed that it was “the end of last summer/fall” when she thought the two may part ways.
“I suppose maybe, subconsciously, I’ve been feeling them longer, but I didn’t know what they meant or wasn’t feeling them appropriately if that makes sense,” she added of the thoughts that had begun to sneak in. They were there, but I was merely turning my cheek in their direction. I didn’t want to accept it as it was.
However, the presenter of You is Gonna Love Me hopes that she and Tom will still be able to hang out even if they start dating other people.
“[Tom] isn’t the kind of man who gets like, extremely, super jealous. We can still be friends, in my opinion. Like, the foundation of our relationship is truly our friendship,” she remarked. “That’s kind of what got us through everything up until this point. We simply really, truly have a wonderful relationship.
We have been together for 12 years and have a long history together, so I think it would really crush both of our hearts if we suddenly stopped being friends. He and some of my closest pals will continue to hang out together. Therefore, a lot of things in our lives would have to alter for us to just stop being friends.
