Katie Maloney says Tom Schwartz’s bar put a strain on their relationship

Wednesday’s episode (February 15) saw Schwartz and his business partner Tom Sandoval finally open the doors to their new bar, Schwartz & Sandy’s.

Katie was there to support her ex-husband and even complimented him on how good the vibes of the establishment were. Although, she couldn’t help but get emotional reflecting on how she felt Tom put the bar before her.

“I’m trying to be excited for Tom, but this bar has a very complicated history,” she said in her confessional. “It put a massive strain on our relationship.”

The season 10 episode was titled ‘Was It Worth It’, and that’s exactly what Katie was asking Tom at the DailyMail party. Katie even called the bar ‘the other woman’ in their marriage.

In response to the question, Tom said: “Don’t say that. Jesus, I don’t know how to answer that. I just don’t want you to ever think that I chose this place over you because I didn’t.”

Tom was seen getting emotional in his confessional. “I’m so madly in love with this whole bar, this lounge, the concept, but sometimes I ask myself, ‘Was it worth it?’ and I don’t know.”
