Tom Schwartz Reveals Where He Stands with Katie Flood Today and How Katie Maloney Feels About the Romance
Vanderpump Rules' Tom Schwartz dished on his "chemistry" with the Below Deck Mediterranean stew.
Tom Schwartz and Katie Flood instantly hit it off on Winter House Season 3, and although they've already encountered a few obstacles — namely, Tom's inability to grapple with the fact that Katie shares a name with his ex-wife and Vanderpump Rules castmate, Katie Maloney — the pair solidified their romance with a "full blown makeout" on Episode 4.
Couple that with Tom buying Katie Flood (or "Floody, as he and his castmates have begun to call her) a pair of $300 earrings on Episode 5, and it's safe to say that the two are in a full-blown "situationship" on Winter House.
Can the same still be said for Tom and Floody today, though? He answered this exact question in a recent interview. Read on to see where the pair stands now.
Are Tom Schwartz and Katie Flood dating after Winter House Season 3?
Not exactly. As Schwartz told E! News on Nov. 21, he and Floody are currently "really good friends."
"We haven't like friend-zoned each other," Tom added. "We stay in touch."
He went on to explain why he fell for Floody in the first place, noting, "She's obviously beautiful, on the surface, but she has a great sensibility. She's self-deprecating, she's really funny. And she's got a lot of humility, too. We kind of got a little spark going and we had some chemistry."
How Katie Maloney Feels About Tom Schwartz and Katie Floody's Romance
As Tom and Floody's romance continues to play out on Winter House Season 3, some may be wondering how Katie Maloney feels about it.
The answer, according to Tom, may surprise you.
"She was very supportive," Tom said. "Somewhere in the back of my mind, I thought she was going to be annoyed or just disappointed that I'd had a romance on camera, even though at that point we had been separated for a year. And again a very healthy, amicable separation."
"Okay, there was a few bumps along the way if you watched [Vanderpump Rules] last season," he added with a laugh. "But for the most part, it's all love with me and Katie. And I'm always rooting for her and she's crushing life right now. It makes me happy to see her just thriving."
Stay tuned for more on Tom and Floody's romance by watching Winter House Season 3. Tom and Katie Maloney's relationship, on the other hand, will play out on the upcoming 11th season of Vanderpump Rules.
