In 2016, she married Tom Schwartz but the couple announced their separation in March 2022. The duo were together for over 12 and share no children.

Tom Schwartz finds Katie living alone ‘weird’

Katie recently celebrated her 37th birthday on January 16 with her best friends by her side. Katie’s birthday celebrations took place in the living room of her Valley Village apartment she moved into in June 2022. Katie told her Dear Media podcast how excited she was to make the space her “own little sanctuary.”

However, her former husband, Tom Schwartz is still getting used to the fact that they’re living apart. In the season 10 premiere of Vanderpump Rules, Schwartz goes to Katie’s apartment to drop off their dogs and says seeing her new home is going to take some getting used to.

He said: “I can’t believe you have an [expletive] apartment. It’s still weird, It’s getting less weird.” 

Katie Maloney’s beef with Lala and Tom

Vanderpump Rules is the hub of friendship group rifts especially when it comes to Katie Maloney and her pals. She and Lala Kent addressed their rocky friendship on each of their podcasts. On Maloney’s January 13 episode, she admitted that the “vibes are definitely off” between the duo.

On a January 18 episode of Give Them Lala, the Vanderpump star seemingly responded to Katie’s comments. Lala quipped: “So I guess the vibes are definitely off.” When Lala’s co-host asked if she was surprised, she answered, “after the DMs, I got from her the other day, not so much.” Referring to the backlash she got from Katie for not sending her a happy birthday message.

She also has drama going on with her former husband which she discussed on her January 13th podcast episode. In the clip, Katie answered the question: “Was this season hard to film because of the divorce and Tom’s questionable antics?” She responded: “You [expletive] bet it was. That was a huge thing because it was still a very tender subject, a very tender time in our lives. We were exploring and still kinda navigating the friendship between us, and that whole aspect of it all was still new to both of us.”

When Tom hooked up with Raquel, he and Katie had “barely moved out.” Then throwing some cameras into the mix, Katie reveals it was “definitely, definitely very difficult.”
