Just a month after ‘Vanderpump Rules’ stars Tom Schwartz and Katie Maloney confirmed their split, rumors surfaced online that Schwartz had moved on romantically.
“Tom Schwartz and Raquel bravely hold hands and make out. Seems like Peter was definitely pro optics. The level of comfort between these two was not the first time. I’m shocked. I didn’t take a picture, but I’m sure someone did,” read a blind released by Bravo and Cocktails on April 18, 2022.
The post has since been deleted. That could be because the information was fake — and Schwartz has confirmed it.
Here’s what you need to know:
Schwartz did not attend Coachella
Perhaps the first step in debunking the rumor that Schwartz and Leviss were at Coachella together is to find out if both parties were in the same place at the same time. As it turns out, Schwartz didn’t attend the festival.
On April 19, 2022, someone on Twitter shared the message sent to Bravo and Cocktails. Schwartz wasted no time in replying.
“People hate to tell you, but I haven’t been to Coachella.” he wroteand added the crying laughter emoji.
Most people didn’t believe Blind Man at first, mainly because Maloney and Leviss became close and Leviss recently made an appearance Maloney’s You’ll Love Me Podcast in which the two women bonded.
Interestingly, Leviss was linked to her VPR co-star Peter Madrigal in the weeks before this rumor surfaced. As it turned out, she was dating him, and she revealed it on Maloney’s podcast. From what she said, things sound more friendly than romantic.
“Everyone will judge me for it. I condemn myself for that,” Leviss said. “Last night I went for a drink with Peter. And it was just a fun little time. And I thought this would be a good opportunity for me to just get back into the dating world because I haven’t been on an official date since we broke up,” Leviss continued.
Maloney & Schwartz still live together
During their divorce, Maloney and Schwartz are still living together, although they sleep in separate bedrooms.
“This housing situation will not last forever. We’re trying to finish the repairs on our house, and then we plan to list our house, sell it, and find our own apartments,” Maloney said on the podcast episode she recorded with Leviss.
“Obviously we don’t sleep in the same room – we’re sort of roommates. We are connected and our friendship is intact. We have a great friendship, so we can still be loving and peaceful with each other during this transition, and that’s been really nice,” added Maloney.
As for dating, Maloney seems open to the idea, but she’s also taking some time to heal.
“It’s a great time to just start saying yes to things. I mean, I try to say yes to things. I didn’t go on dates, but I say yes, going out with friends and having dinner and just hanging out with people,” she said.
