Vanderpump Rules star Katie Maloney’s split from husband Tom Schwartz happened just days ago, and now Katie has opened up about how she’s been doing since making the announcement.
Following 12 years together, Katie and Tom announced their separation after rumors surfaced that there was trouble in paradise for the Bravo stars. The initial rumors questioned the status of their marriage after Katie shared a cryptic message on social media.
However, it didn’t stop there. In the weeks that followed, Katie was spotted out and about without her wedding ring on more than one occasion. The constant barrage of questions may have been what finally pushed her and Tom to come clean about their situation.
Thankfully the pair is seemingly on good terms, and that has allowed Katie to put herself first and focus on her future goals. She confirmed her current state of mind in a recent Q&A on social media.
