Tom Schwartz hasn't always been perfect, and he's the first person to admit that. But now the Vanderpump Rules star is ready to put all the drama behind him, and make up for the mistakes of his past. Schwartz proudly declared that it is the "Year of Tom" when Season 4 of Vanderpump Rules kicked off earlier this month, and now he's breaking down just what that means to The Daily Dish.
"I did declare it the 'Year of Tom,' and it is! This is just a year of turning things around and redeeming myself. I feel like I was just kind of going through the motions of life over the course of the last year," he explained (in the clip above). "And I wasn't loyal to my girlfriend. I was so wishy washy, you know. Maybe I'm still a little wishy washy, but I feel like I've come a long way."
And that means he had to overcome some adversity in his relationship with Katie Maloney, who he finally proposed to back in July (this time with a ring that wasn't on a string). "I feel like me and Katie had to completely fall apart, and just like get it all out. There was so much pent up, not resentment, well, some resentment. There was so much, I feel like we had to let it all out and it was kind of a disaster and after that [it was fine]."
These days, Schwartz isn't the only one putting love first. Check out Jax Taylor opening up about his girlfriend, Brittany, below.
