Vanderpump Rules stars Katie Maloney and Tom Schwartz have had their fair share of ups and downs in their relationship, but they say that their marriage is stronger than ever – despite a recent cheating scandal. So how do they get past it? The reality stars reveal that they are good at addressing their problems, and their conflict resolutions skills are “off the charts.”
In a new interview with OK!, the couple says that married life is terrific and a lot easier than dating.
“I feel like we went through all the bad stuff early on and now we just get to enjoy the spoils of our happy marriage,” says Schwartz.
Maloney added that the key “is moving past everything and keeping it behind you.”
Cheating rumors have plagued the couple for years, with the most recent allegation being that in recent months, Schwartz made out with a friend of Lala Kent’s while Maloney was out of town.
In a recent episode of the hit Bravo reality show, Kent dropped the cheating bombshell to Scheana Marie and Ariana Madix, telling them that Schwartz hooked up with a friend of hers after he married Maloney.
Kent said that she wasn’t going to say anything, but she changed her mind because Maloney made fun of her boyfriend.
“You f**k with my relationship, I’m coming at you full force,” blasted Kent. “What a dumb a** b*tch. Well her marriage is going to end, so that’s her karma.”
When Madix pulled Schwartz aside to tell him what she knew, he said there was no way that it happened. But when she told him that it was at the Bungalow club when his wife was in New York, he admitted that he was incredibly drunk that night and he didn’t remember anything. But, since something like that had happened before, he was definitely capable of it.
Schwartz then told his wife about the alleged hookup. He admitted that he had made out with someone, but had no recollection of it.
Maloney’s reaction wasn’t good. She started asking Schwartz what was wrong with him and wondered if this was karmic punishment. Then, Maloney started to recall the last time Schwartz had been unfaithful, saying she had already been down this road, and she felt like this was a bad dream.
Maloney then told Schwartz to get it together. He said he had no excuse, and he couldn’t remember a thing.
Their boss, Lisa Vanderpump, officiated Schwartz and Maloney’s wedding, and when she found out about the cheating took it personally.
She told Schwartz she wasn’t happy with him and he needs to remember the ring on his finger.
