Vanderpump Rules fans have been wondering for a year just what Tom Schwartz’s job at Tom Tom will be, and this week during Bravo’s Vanderpump Rules After Show, Lisa Vanderpump tried to clear up what Schwartz will be doing. But, everyone still seems a bit confused about his role – even the Bravolebrity.
When a producer asked the restaurant owner, “What do you expect Schwartz to do at Tom Tom?” she replied, “Show up.”
The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills star then attempted to elaborate further by saying Schwartz has a love and zest for life, which apparently are important qualities for a Tom Tom employee. She also said that the 35-year-old is possibly one of the most likable people anyone in the group has ever met, and then added that she doesn’t understand how he gets “everything back to front, inside out, and upside down.” Vanderpump doesn’t think he knows his “a**hole from breakfast time, but he has a likable quality.
When she does finally open Tom Tom, fans will surely show up because Schwartz and Tom Sandoval are famous. Plus, they have heard so much about the bar this season. But chances are Schwartz will most likely not be a bartender based on the fact that he left mid-shift the only time he worked at PUMP.
Vanderpump owns several bars and restaurants with her husband Ken Todd, and they know what it takes to be successful. So, if she thinks Schwartz will help Tom Tom thrive, then she probably knows what she is talking about.
She says that a lot of magic in a restaurant and bar is the people who greet you and who you know when you walk through the door – the energy of the place. Vanderpump then told Schwartz he would be greeting and be very present.
But when she called him a “greeter,” he didn’t seem to agree, and disputed her statement by saying he won’t be “like a Walmart greeter.” Vanderpump then said that Schwartz is going to be a partner, and that means standing there and looking after your customers and your business. He has to make sure the music is right and listen to everything to make sure that it is successful.
As she continued to explain his different jobs, Schwartz didn’t appear too sure of his many Tom Tom roles, or it was possible he started to panic about all that he would actually have to do. But, he is going to have to accept it because Vanderpump is boss.
As for his partner, Sandoval will be a bartender and is currently working on creating cocktails. But Vanderpump made it clear that drinking cocktails isn’t the same as working on them.
There still isn’t an official opening date for the West Hollywood bar, but Sandoval recently revealed that it will probably open in late May or early June.
Part three of the Vanderpump Rules season six reunion airs Monday night on Bravo.
