Vanderpump Rules star Tom Schwartz and Tom Sandoval are dishing about this season of the show during a recent appearance on The Daily Dish podcast. The Toms spoke about the cast’s recent trip to New Orleans, gay rumors and crazy fans.
“I think that’s an accurate portrayal. I think it’s probably the hardest I’ve ever fallen apart in my life. It was cathartic and it was sloppy. It was a beautiful disaster,” Tom said of his drunken behavior at his bachelor party. Of the NOLA trip, Sandoval added, “It was super fun and amazing and also very like depressing.”
Schwartz added, “It was contentious at moments,” and Sandoval threw out the word, “emotional” as a description. Schwartz even said, “It was a disaster. I’m having flashbacks.”
The host asked if Tom Schwartz watches the episodes with his wife Katie Maloney. “I can’t. I can’t watch the episodes,” he admitted. Schwartz continued, “First of all, I love our show. I love watching it with Tom. I’ll indulge with Tom once in a while, but I just can’t do it. I can’t look at myself. It’s just so hard to watch yourself. I don’t know if it’s the same for everybody, but I just look at myself and I just hyper-criticize myself and I’m like ‘Oh my god. You’re a wreck.’”
The Toms have always had love for one another, so what about the gay rumors that started circulating after Sandoval did a photoshoot with Joe Simpson? “People say that about everyone. They say that about Ryan Seacrest, they say it about me, that say it about [Schwartz]. People like to speculate all kinds of different things,” Sandoval insisted.
As for Tom and Katie’s upcoming wedding that we will see at the end of this season, Schwartz said, “It’s a beautiful, beautiful disaster.” He even teared up when he described his wedding by saying, “Not everyone can say that they’ve had the best moment of their life documented. I’m the happiest I’ve ever been. I could cry right now.”
Sandoval added, “I’ve said it before, but I think this is one of the best – if not the best – seasons of our show.”
Schwartz continued, “I don’t say the word ‘epic’ anymore because I feel like it’s hackneyed or abused, but this wedding was epic.” And Sandoval finished things off by teasing the next episode, citing a recommendation from Lisa Vanderpump herself: “Lisa even said that next week’s episode is the best episode of the show’s history. I definitely agree with that in a lot of ways, but it gets even better after that.”
