Shutting it down. Katie Maloney is responding to Raquel Leviss’ claims that she and Tom Schwartz made their Vanderpump Rules costars choose sides amid their break up — and her endurance is carrying skinny.
“We literally told them there’s no sides to pick,” Maloney, 35, commented by way of an Instagram fan page put up on Friday, June 3, of the mannequin’s Page Six interview. “I have felt that some people have on their own done that for whatever reason, but Tom and I are still friends so whatever.”
Leviss, 27, beforehand spoke out about feeling caught in the midst of the previous couple’s points. “I feel like with Tom and Katie, they do expect [people to pick] sides, unfortunately,” the California native advised the outlet in May. “It has [changed the dynamic], yeah. It seems that way, anyway – even though I’m friends with both of them.”
The former Miss Sonoma County didn’t elaborate on which half of the couple was placing extra stress on the group however hinted that one cast member may be feeling the warmth extra so than others. “Personally, I don’t get that vibe, but Scheana [Shay] does, so you should ask her,” she added on the time.
Leviss’ feedback got here simply two months after the “You’re Gonna Love Me” podcast host and TomTom co-owner, 39, introduced their breakup after being collectively for greater than a decade. “Well this sucks,” Schwartz wrote by way of Instagram in March. “I’m not the victim. Not gonna write too sad a song. Fully respect Katie’s decision and we’ve had healthy, productive conversations about it. It would be far sadder if she decided to stay with me whilst not happy.”
Maloney, for her half, revealed later that month that it was her choice to name it quits.
“I realized that I had to really start prioritizing myself and my happiness as well. It just needed to happen. That’s just what everything inside of me was saying, I thought it got to a point where I just felt like I was going to burst,” she defined an episode of her podcast. “For months, it was building up. I felt just disconnected. I felt like I was drifting further and further away.”
In April, the Utah native advised Us Weekly that it had been Leviss’ personal breakup with ex-boyfriend James Kennedy that initially impressed her to take a deeper look into her personal life.
“When they announced at the reunion that they had broken it up — it was a bit empowering because when you’re trying to figure out what to do and you see other people be strong and their convictions like that, you’re like, ‘All right, I can do it, I can do it,” she stated.
According to government producer Lisa Vanderpump, season 10 of Vanderpump Rules, which was renewed in May, will tackle the pair’s divorce in a fancy approach.
“I think you’ll see there have been some tough moments,” Vanderpump, 61, advised Page Six throughout the Vanderpump Dog Foundation’s sixth annual World Dog Day. “The thing with this cast is, they’re very open emotionally. Maybe it’s because they’ve kind of grown up with the cameras, you know? It’s been 10 years. They’re very relaxed about sharing their lives. I think that makes for fascinating television. It’s people’s journeys – and this is a journey a lot of people relate to as well.”
