While appearing on the December 10 episode of Watch What Happens Live with Andy Cohen, host Andy Cohen read a viewer-submitted question that asked Ariana for her opinion on Schwartz being “hung up” on Katie’s name.

Ariana may not be in the best place with Schwartz, but her friendship with Katie Maloney is stronger than ever.  In fact, the Single AF Cocktails author opened up about her tight-knit bond with her castmate while in the Bravo Clubhouse.

During a game of “Vanderpump You for Info,” Andy questioned Ariana about who’s the “most loyal friend” out of the former SURver’s squad, and to no surprise, she named her close friend and Something About Her co-owner, Katie Maloney.
