If viewers have tuned into Vanderpump Rules this season and thought that the stress of wedding planning and the drama within her crew of bridesmaids is weighing on Katie Maloney-Schwartz's attitude, well, her now-hubby Tom Schwartz has some words to share.
"Katie, in the past, she's been contentious and petty and just sulky, but once you've seen Katie's inner light you know that's not what defines her," Tom, who has also faced off with his spouse throughout the season, recently told The Daily Dish. "There's so much more to Katie. That's not what defines Katie Maloney. I wouldn't be married to her if it was, you know? Once you see her in her light, it sounds cheesy, but, yeah."
In fact, Schwartz's longtime best bud, Tom Sandoval, took that argument one step further, noting that Katie's inner circle of gal pals should have stepped up more to support her. "When you're in a vulnerable spot or when you're in a situation where you can either go either way, in my opinion, it's your friends job to keep you from straying too much to the dark or letting something ruin your night," he told us. "It's your friends' job to be, 'Hey, take a deep breath. You OK? You good?'"
Of course, the pre-wedding drama will continue to unfold before the Schwartzs can get to their happily ever after. Check out a preview of next Monday's episode, below.
