New Details Emerge Surrounding Max Boyens and Katie Maloney's Hookup — Thanks to Brittany Cartwright

Was Max Boyens and Katie Maloney's hookup motivated by "revenge"? Brittany Cartwright weighs in and reveals new information.

After Scheana Shay saw that Max Boyens' phone was pinging in Katie Maloney's apartment building one night, Katie confirmed on Vanderpump Rules that she and Max — who happens to be one of Tom Schwartz's closest friends — did indeed hook up.

How to Watch

Watch Vanderpump Rules on Bravo Tuesdays at 8/7c and next day on Peacock. Catch up on the Bravo app.  

Katie addressed her and Max's hookup on Vanderpump Rules Season 11, Episode 10 (which aired on April 2). "I was, like, truly in a mindset of 'f-ck it,'" Katie explained to Ariana Madix.

"I don't really give a f-ck," Katie added in a confessional interview. "I'm just gonna do what I want."

She shared a similar sentiment in conversation with Schwartz and later on the Vanderpump Rules After Show. Katie also insisted that the hookup was not a "revenge bang" despite the fact that it occurred right after she found out Schwartz had previously kissed Scheana Shay. "That was really divine timing though," she said.

Schwartz, on the other hand, did indeed think Katie hooked up with Max out of "revenge." This ignited a debate on the Vanderpump Rules After Show as well as the April 2 episode of Watch What Happens Live with Andy Cohen, during which The Valley's Brittany Cartwright weighed in.
