Why Tom Continues To Wear Ring Post Katie Split

Why Tom Continues To Wear Ring Post Katie Split

Even though Vanderpump Rules stars Katie Maloney and Tom Schwartz are divorcing, he still chooses to sport his wedding ring out and about.

Tom Schwartz of Vanderpump Rules recently shared with fans why he chooses to still wear his wedding ring to Katie Maloney after their recent split. Katie filed for divorce shortly after their announcement that they were taking a break back in March. Now Bravo fans are wondering if Tom isn’t managing the break-up so well.

After 12 years together, Katie finally got tired of Tom dropping the ball as her husband. Viewers often watched Tom back away from confrontation or even defend his wife, especially when it came to helping out at his bar, TomTom. Back in March, Katie was snapped out with her good friend, Stassi Schroeder, not wearing her diamond wedding ring. VPR fans knew what was coming next and couldn’t help but feel sad for the couple who star in The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills spinoff. Tom proposed to Katie in 2015 with the help of Lisa Vanderpump, and the couple exchanged vows in 2016..

It seems memories are hard to block out for Tom, who was spotted wearing his wedding ring. According to Page Six, Tom feels extremely “naked” without the ring. While he joked that it was not because he was “clinging on” to the relationship, Tom added that there was such a “profound love” with Katie that it didn’t feel right to remove the ring just yet. Tom told fans that he was doing the best he could, adding that coming out of a long-term relationship with someone he deeply loved has been challenging.

Tom’s best friend and fellow Vanderpump Rules castmate, Tom Sandoval, was right next to him, encouraging him to keep wearing the ring. The bartender told the reader that Schwartz better keep wearing the ring because it is giving everyone hope that the former couple may be able to work out their issues in the long run. Even though Sandoval is known to butt heads with Katie, he was on the side of love and wanted to support his friend and business partner. Despite their impending divorce, Schwartz shared that he and Katie were still living together in their home near Sherman Oaks due to “practicality.” 

While Katie and Tom were never a model couple, they were big hitters on Vanderpump Rules. In the early days, Hurricane Katie would rear her ugly head after drinking a shot or two of tequila. Tom also wasn’t great at handling his alcohol. As fans will remember, he once threw a drink on Katie’s head while in Mexico. It may be better that the two decided to go their separate ways, but for now, both hearts are still healing.
