Katie Maloney-Schwartz Talks Owning Mistakes and Social Media Hate

Viewers of Vanderpump Rules know that despite having her wedding aired this season, it wasn’t all good for Katie Maloney-Schwartz. Between fighting with her fiance, her feud with Lala and the negative attention on social media, it wasn’t as glamorous as it may have appeared.

On The Daily Dish podcast, Katie admitted, “I got pretty much slaughtered for the last year. All summer was tough. Social media this whole season has not been fun.”

Schwartz, who was on the podcast with her, said people on social media have gone so far as to compare Katie to Hitler and have told her to kill herself. “Even having thick skin, eventually that gets to you,” Katie admitted.

When asked by the hosts if the reunion this year was tough, Katie said, “Because I endured so much [negativity], by the time the reunion came around, I was like, ‘I can handle pretty much anything.’ It was the time to speak the final words and sort of put the period at the end of it and just put it to bed.”

She also said the reunion was an opportunity to own her mistakes. “It wasn’t fun the entire time, but I had to really swallow my pride and truthfully own some of my actions. I couldn’t defend everything. It was my time to address all of those things, and I think I did.”

My name is Nicki. I am 32 years-old and married to my best friend. I was previously in business for over 12 years, but I’ve always had a great passion for web and graphic design. Another one of my passions, of course, is to escape into the world of TV, which is where this journey began. My goal in starting AllThingsRH.com was to give fans, like myself, a place to catch up on all the latest news and gossip about The Real Housewives. I wanted to create a place where viewers could interact with each other, share their opinions, and get straight-forward and unbiased information about what’s going on. I am proud of the diversity this site has to offer.
