Tom Regrets Calling Scheana a ‘Bootleg Kardashian’

Over the six seasons of Vanderpump Rules, many an insult has been slung by the SURvers and their pals. And on a recent episode of the show, Tom Schwartz found himself smack dab in the middle of some of the drama when Scheana Shay found herself at odds (again) with Katie Maloney-Schwartz (and, well, also Lala Kent). That's when Tom stepped in — and called Scheana a "bootleg Kardashian."

How to Watch

Watch Vanderpump Rules on Peacock and the Bravo app.  

With some distance since that phrase was uttered, the model/future Tom Tom proprietor reflected on the incident during an appearance on Watch What Happens Live with Andy Cohen on Monday. As you can see in the clip above, Tom shares how he feels about calling Scheana that now and if he has any regrets about saying it.

Last December, Katie reflected on her ups and downs with Scheana, telling Us Weekly at the time, "I kind of resolved it to — we don’t have to be best friends. I’m not going to hate you. I’m not going to ignore you or go out of my way to be rude," she explained. "If I see you, I’m going to say, 'Hello. How are you?' That’s what I thought was going on."

You can hear more from Scheana on the matter, below.
