There seems to be no bad blood between Vanderpump Rules stars Katie Maloney and Tom Schwartz despite their ongoing divorce.
As reported by Monsters and Critics, Katie and Tom announced the end of their marriage earlier this year by taking to social media to release individual statements. At the time, both Katie and Tom admitted that they were devastated to see their marriage come to an end, but they still had deep love and respect for one another.
And it seems they were telling the truth.
After announcing their separation and impending divorce, the former couple put their once shared home up on the market and moved into their own places. Katie has already given her online followers a sneak peek at her new digs.
The pair has also maintained that their friendship remains intact, and while Katie shared she wasn’t looking forward to addressing their divorce in the upcoming Season 10, she confirmed they’ve always been open and honest, so they’re certainly not planning on stopping now.
Just after Katie and Tom were seen engaging in a heated discussion while cameras were rolling, they recently updated their followers on the current status of their romance turned friendship, and it doesn’t look like they’re doing too bad.

Taking to his Instagram Stories, Tom shared a snap of himself and his former wife. The two looked quite content as they hung out side-by-side in a pool while taking in the warm weather.
Tom held his camera up to show his smiling face while wearing shades and a ball cap. Just behind him Katie also flashed a half smile for the camera with her hair pulled back and away from her face while she also protected her eyes with sunglasses.
There was no caption or wording on the post, however, Tom did tag Katie’s Instagram handle.
If this is what their divorce looks like, maybe Tom was right to call them the “best divorcees ever.”

While at the grand opening for his new lounge with business partner and BFF Tom Sandoval, Tom Schwartz discussed the current state of his relationship with Katie.
According to Tom, he appreciated how busy he was with opening his new restaurant as it helped distract him from the stress of their divorce. However, it hasn’t all been bad news.
“Yes, it was very painful, no one loves getting divorced,” Tom shared. “But I think we might be some of the best divorcees ever. We still have an incredible friendship.”
Tom continued, “Yeah, it was rough in the beginning, I’m not gonna lie, but we still have a great bond, we still text, talk, we have joint custody of the dogs.”
He concluded that despite the raw pain of their relationship and marriage coming to an end, there’s “zero animosity, it’s not awkward, there’s no tension.”
Of course, there’s bound to be bumps in the road, and it won’t all be smooth sailing. Viewers will have to tune in when the new season drops to watch their new dynamic unfold.
Vanderpump Rules is currently on hiatus.
