Tom Schwartz and Jo Wenberg's Relationship History
Vanderpump Rules fans likely first heard about Jo on Season 10. Following his separation from Katie, Schwartz and Jo were roommates. Though Schwartz told Scheana that he was just friends with Jo, the pals turned their friendship into a situationship.
During the Vanderpump Rules Season 10 reunion, Schwartz clarified his status with Jo.
“It did evolve into a situationship, or like a friends-with-benefits thing with clearly defined boundaries,” Schwartz said. “We were both coming out of long-term relationships, and for a minute there, we were each other’s happy place.”
