Katie Maloney blasts Tom Schwartz’s support for Tom Sandoval on ‘WWHL’

Katie Maloney sees “media training” in Tom Schwartz’s future after his “Watch What Happens Live” interview about Scandoval.

After breaking down the latest episode of “Vanderpump Rules” via Instagram Wednesday, Maloney addressed her ex-husband’s “not good” chat with Andy Cohen.

“[He’s] just gonna say whatever lands in [his] head,” the 36-year-old said.

She went on to tweet a clip of Schwartz, 40, asking fans of the Bravo series to be kinder to Tom Sandoval and hug him after his affair with Raquel Leviss.

“You’re the only one that wants to hug him dude,” Maloney wrote.


Schwartz spoke candidly throughout the interview, telling viewers that he found out about Sandoval and Leviss’ so-called “one night stand” and ensuing “emotional affair” in August 2022.

He claimed that five months later, Sandoval, 40, told Schwartz that he was “in love” with the 28-year-old former pageant queen.

“Raquel is Tom’s heroin,” Schwartz said. “He’s addicted. It’s an infatuation of infatuations.”

The reality star also alleged that his Schwartz & Sandy’s co-owner attempted to break up with his girlfriend, Ariana Madix, on multiple occasions.

He claimed, “I [was] fed a narrative that … he [was] not happy, they [were] not healthy, not intimate, blah blah blah.”

News broke last month that Madix, 37, and Sandoval had called it quits after his months-long dalliance with her former friend Leviss.

Leviss and Sandoval have played coy about the current status of their relationship in conversations with paparazzos.

“We’re just kind of trying to get through these next few steps and trying to make amends,” Leviss said last month.

She noted that they were “not putting a label” on their romance.
