By Allison Crist

Katie Maloney and Tom Schwartz both went on dates with Scheana Shay's friend Tori Keeth on Vanderpump Rules Season 11, Episode 11 (which aired April 9), but which ex was the first to express interest in the singer? It turns out there's differing opinions. 

Katie Maloney says she pursued Tori Keeth before knowing about her and Tom Schwartz

How to Watch

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

A producer on the Vanderpump Rules After Show asks Katie in the above clip, "Were you interested in Tori before you found out that Schwartz was interested in Tori?"

"Yes," Katie replies. "[Ariana Madix] can vouch for this. I truly did not know that she had talked to Tom or anything like that. I was like, 'Whatever.'"

Sitting alongside Katie is none other than Ariana herself, who adds, "Facts. 'Cause I remember we were at SUR and you guys were flirting, and there was a time before that too where Tori came up to me and said I was talking to Katie — it was like the night before the last time you guys had seen each other — and [Tori] was like, 'I think I actually like [Katie]. And I was like, 'You should talk to her.'"

Scheana Shay claims Tori Keeth had a crush on Tom Schwartz for "years"

Scheana, on the other hand, revealed on the Vanderpump Rules After Show that Tori "had a crush on Schwartz for a couple of years." 

"Like, right after he got divorced, [Tori] was like, 'Hey, I heard Schwartz is single!' and I was like 'Err...'" Scheana recalled. "The age gap for me, I was like, it's a little too much."

(Tori is 25 while Schwartz is 41.)

"But then I feel like the only girls Schwartz and [Tom] Sandoval have hung out with have really been in their early to mid 20s, so I was like, 'Maybe,'" Scheana continued. "Then when Katie seemed interested, I'm like, 'Look, Tori's bi — so, maybe. I think it could go either way. Let the best person win.'"

Katie Maloney and Tom Schwartz's thoughts on being in a love triangle

Putting aside who was or wasn't interested in Tori first, Schwartz ultimately described the situation with him, Katie, and Tori as "f-cking weird." 

"Like, can you imagine?" he added on the VPR After Show. "In 2018, we just bought a home together, we're married, we're happy as f-ck — you know, more or less — but now it's like we're vying for the same chick."

A split of Katie Maloney, Tom Schwartz, and Tori Keeth.

Katie, for her part, insisted she simply wasn't thinking about Schwartz at the time. Speaking sarcastically, she joked, "My life revolves around Tom Schwartz. Everything I do is for that man and because of that man, literally. I eat, sleep, breathe Tom Schwartz. I can't make a single decision until I figure out if it has anything to do with Tom Schwartz. Would Tom Schwartz sleep with this person? Is he sleeping with this person? I need to know before I make a decision."
