What does he do? The Tom Sandoval-Rachel Lewis case More interesting than the usual reality TV cheating scandal is the way it affects the entire cast. Vanderpump rules.
The most obvious victim is Tom’s ex-girlfriend Ariana Maddix, but Raquel’s ex-fiancé, James Kennedy, and many other people have been involved, knowingly or otherwise, in the effort to cover up this happy romance.
Take, for example, Tom Schwartz, who spent years building a reputation as one of Vanderpump’s most sane and stable members, falling between scandals.
To be clear, Schwartz is not blameless in all of this.
But his harmless “nice guy” bestie and business partner may have taken off a few more years because he didn’t decide to have a messy relationship with his younger partner.
As Schwartz, he’s called in to help the crooks get rid of, and he’s making things worse by defending Sandoval.
Now, Schwartz’s own character is being reexamined, and many VPR fans have come to the conclusion that he wasn’t such a nice guy to begin with.
In other words, Schwartz’s ex-wife Katie Maloney is finally getting a much-deserved redemption arc.
Schwartz appeared on See what happened straight ahead On Wednesday, he encouraged viewers to hug Sandoval if they see him in public.
That was too much for Maloney, who tweeted her frustration watching the show.
“You’re the only one who wants to hug him, my friend. Read the section!!!” Maloney wrote.
Katie added, referring to past incidents where she was bullied by Toms.
“I’ve been called a monster too many times to count… Today’s #whl just didn’t rankle me. unfortunately”
Like the others Vanderpump Actors, Katie has been talking a lot about the Sandoval-Raquel situation in recent weeks.
And she made it clear that she wasn’t the least bit surprised to learn that Schwartz knew about it.
In fact, she says, the illicit lovers were very brave until the end. Everyone He found out!
“I started to know… during Ariana [Madix] Katie revealed during a recent appearance on Nick Viall’s podcast.
“If Ariana chooses not to go to a party or event, Tom and Raquel will go together.”
Maloney then said she knew something was wrong when she saw that Sandoval and Raquel were wearing matching lightning bolt necklaces.
“I notice what my friends wear, especially what they wear all the time. [and ask], ‘Is this new? What’s the point?” Kathy remembers.
“A flash of lightning [is] Not like a heart or a butterfly. Not as beautiful.
Apparently, Schwartz also noticed the corresponding screws.
But at that point, Sandoval Tom wasn’t the only one completely caught up in this thing.
