Katie moved into her new apartment with the help of her ex, Tom. Although the separation was rather sudden, the two still left on good terms.
Both stars jumped to their social media to make a statement about the final decision to go their separate ways.
Katie wrote out that she still had a deep ‘admiration’ for her ex, and that they will do their best to still ‘cherish their friendship.’

‘I’ll be okay’: Although Tom stated that his heart ‘ached’ over the decision, the two still went their separate ways peacefully
While voicing his heartbreak over the decision, he also typed out, ‘It would be far sadder if she decided to stay with me whilst not happy.’
Tom was strong and also stated in his post that he respected Katie and that they had, ‘healthy, productive conversations,’ about separating.
The couple were legally married for almost four years total, but issues in the relationship couldn’t keep it glued together.

Katie and Tom found fame on Lisa Vanderpump’s spin-off show about a group of friends working at her popular SUR restaurant in West Hollywood, and their relationship was often a featured storyline on the series.
In season five, the couple had their dream wedding in the forest in Northern California, with Lisa officiating the ceremony, only to find out years later that Tom never filed the paperwork to legally certify their union.
On season eight, they whisked away to Las Vegas for the weekend and were officially married in 2019, once again by their boss, Lisa Vanderpump.

‘I felt that we had grown together, and I thought that we would continue growing together. I was very optimistic,’ she said on We Met At Acme podcast.
Maloney confessed that she began to realize toward the end of 2021 that despite doing her best, their relationship wasn’t salvageable.
‘I had been expressing my feelings and where I felt that I was not getting my needs met and where I thought I was being hurt by some of the behavior, and I don’t think he understood or resonated or agreed,’ she shared. ‘I understand you can’t really change a person, and I don’t necessarily want to.’
She realized it would have taken a ‘wakeup call [or] an epiphany’ for Tom to really realize what was at stake and that their relationship was floundering.
While Katie fessed up to being a ‘bad drunk’ and admitted she had her own faults after investing in herself to not only improve their relationship but also her image of self-worth, Maloney didn’t feel as though Schwartz was putting in any similar self work.
