“I’m not trying to get a boyfriend or a relationship, but I’m having fun.” – Katie Maloney, Bachelor Happy Hour podcast.

Both Maloney and her ex were guests at former co-star Stassi Schroeder’s recent Italian wedding. The two were among the only former co-stars not snubbed for the event.

Despite splitting up, Schwartz and Maloney are still on good terms. It’s likely for that reason that they didn’t make things awkward at Schroeder’s wedding.

However, Tom raised eyebrows after he returned to the States by posting a photo with a woman named Fawn Everett.

Bravoholics did a deep dive into Everett and discovered she’s a mutual friend of both Tom and Katie. Heavy reported fan speculation that Schwartz met up with the friend during a layover on the flight home from Italy.

While Katie Maloney seems ready to move on, Tom Schwartz may not be on the same page. The breakup could make things awkward during the upcoming Season 10 of Vanderpump Rules.
