Katie Maloney missed “Vanderpump Rule” reunion – sort of.
The Bravo reality show OG star was on top all season long new bar business that her husband, Tom Schwartz, was opening with Tom Sandoval, but she did not confront Sandoval directly at the reunion recording. The “Vanderpump Rules” season 9 reunion taping took place on stage in Los Angeles on December 3, 2021, according to Us Weekly.
This is why Katie missed the in-person reunion.
Katie Maloney and Tom Schwartz had a last minute change of plans
Fans first suspected that Katie and Schwartz were not at the reunion when the former SURver tweeted and deleted a video of her at home during her reunion on the day the updated show was filmed.
According to a post on “Pump Rules” Twitter page, One fan noted that there were only 9 seats seen in the Raquel Leviss reunion stage photo when there should have been at least 12 seats to accommodate the full cast.
“In Raquel’s latest video, we only see 9 chairs… Charli. Raquel. James. Lisa. Andy. Tom. Ariana. Scheana. Brock… Lala and Katie are in a trance but not filming there? ” to the caption.
Both Katie and Lala Kent later deleted their videos. Katie’s husband was also photographed reunited at home, via Bravo Insider.
Katie then shared an update on Instagram as she posed in her bright red House of CB reunion dress with matching gloves.
“Look at my season 9 reunion!” she captioned the photo. “It’s my favorite! … So of course I was heartbroken when I got sick on the morning of the reunion and couldn’t join everyone on set. ”
Katie and Tom Schwartz also skipped their Watch What Happens Live schedule
While Katie did not elaborate on her illness, she was so ill that she also had to cancel her previously scheduled appearance on “Watch What Happens Live” a few days after the reunion. Katie and Schwartz were scheduled to appear on Andy Cohen’s Bravo late-night show on Tuesday, December 7 following the episode of “Vanderpump Rules” that night, according to a list shared by My TV tonight. Instead, Katie’s “Vanderpump Rules” season 9 enemies, Tom Sandoval, and his girlfriend, Ariana Madix, joined Cohen in the studio that night.
After Sandoval appeared on WWHL, Kate filmed a weird video in which she accused him of lying about her asking to join the bar he was opening with her husband. Katie said she specifically told Sandoval that she wanted to work at the bar and that it would have nothing to do with the “Vanderpump Rule” storyline.
Katie and Sandoval’s beef is sure to be dealt with in the “Vanderpump Rule” reunion – even if Katie’s side is videotaped.
The upcoming reunion isn’t the first time Katie will be virtual. For the season 8 reunion that was filmed last year, the entire cast went virtual filming due to the COVID-19 pandemic. according to Us Weekly. At that time, Katie also boasted that she had lost 20 kg
