Tom Schwartz opened up about his ex-wife Katie Maloney’s new husband.
The ‘Vanderpump Rules’ stars announced their split in March 2022, and their divorce was recently finalized.
While he’s now single for the first time in more than 12 years, Schwartz has stated that he has no interest in dating at the moment. In October 2022, the 40-year-old bar owner changed said E! news that dating seems like “such an abstraction” at this point in his life.
“I don’t even think about dating, I accept being single and I’m focused on my career and our business,” he said.
But the same can’t be said for Maloney, who is back in the dating pool and meeting a guy 15 years younger than Schwartz.
Tom Schwartz admitted he “liked” Katie Maloney’s young boyfriend.
During BravoCon in October, Maloney said Page Six that she met some guys via Instagram DM. “There’s a guy who’s like 25 that I’ve been hanging out with,” she said. “It’s fun, it’s just casual. It’s just fun.”
According to Us WeeklyMaloney’s 25-year-old boyfriend is actor Satchel Clendenin.
Schwartz in early November said the outlet that he had heard “great” things about clendenin. “I heard he’s a really nice guy,” said Tom Tom’s partner. “I just want Katie to be happy. I’m not just saying that. I’m not trying to be a self-righteous Mr. Cool Guy. I just want Katie to be happy. I’m not the jealous type.”
But recently, Schwartz confirmed that he actually met his ex-wife’s new husband — and liked him.
“I met him briefly,” Schwartz said the sun. “I don’t know if I should say this, but I liked him. And then people will say, ‘Oh, you like everyone.’ I don’t like everyone, but I liked him.”
Schwartz admitted that “of course it hurts on a certain level,” but that he just wants his ex to be happy. “I will support anyone she wants to date as long as they’re not an asshole,” he added.
Katie Maloney spoke about dating younger men
In July 2022, Maloney, 35, opened up on dating younger men after 12 years with Schwartz. “Many [the guys] are really young and that’s kind of fun too,” she said told us back then. “I’m kind of in a Puma era.”
She also confirmed that her 25-year-old boyfriend has been hanging out with some of her Vanderpump Rules co-stars and other friends.
And like Schwartz, Maloney’s best friend, former ‘Vanderpump Rules’ star Stassi Schroeder, has given her approval of Clendenin. An insider said Hollywood Life that Schroeder “couldn’t be happier” for her VPR beast.
“Stassi just wants Katie to be happy,” the source said. “A few people have met Satchel and so far everyone thinks he’s great. He’s really laid back, which Stassi says suits Katie well. She realizes there is an age difference but Satchel seems quite mature for his age and Katie enjoys his company so that’s all that matters. She sees that Katie isn’t putting too much pressure on herself and is just having fun for now.”
