Lisa Vanderpump and Ken Todd know a thing or two about maintaining a relationship for a long period of time. After all, the couple has been married for 34 years. And when it came to assessing the sometimes drama-filled romances of her crew on Vanderpump Rules, the restaurateur hoped a certain set of newlyweds are the most stable in the group.
"I hope Tom [Schwartz] and Katie [Maloney]! They are married and I love them both and want the best for them," she told Yahoo. "Tom [Sandoval] and Ariana [Madix] also have a great relationship, they really do."
While Schwartz and Katie are currently Mr. and Mrs. after saying I do back in August, it's clear from the Season 5 preview that the road to happily ever after wasn't always an easy journey. "Oh, that’s the understatement of the year!" she teased about the couple. "I’ve been married for years and really believe in the institution of marriage. It seemed like they weren’t in a great place. You’ll have to see how it unravels because there is nothing I can say that does this story justice."
Though it does sound like the couple has found the perfect way to keep the spark alive now that they did take the plunge. Schwartz recently shared with Bravo After Hours a bit about his date nights with his lady love, which sometimes take place at the bar where he proposed back in July 2015.
"It's nice. Every time I go back in there, I kind of look upstairs and I reminisce," he shared. "It takes me back. And sometimes me and Katie will sneak away 'cause there's two bars: there's Rock & Reilly's and then [the bar located upstairs where I proposed]. Sometimes we'll be at Rock & Reilly's, and we'll be like, 'Hey you wanna go upstairs and have a drink where I proposed to you?'"
