Everything is happening, and then some. Season 10 of The Vanderpump Rules cast has begun, and it appears that the devoted pals will be dealing with some major obstacles in their personal life.
Everyone is thinking about Katie Maloney and Tom Schwartz‘s separation in the trailer for the forthcoming season, which was published on Monday, January 9. Following their breakup, Katie, 35, is stunned to learn that her estranged husband, 40, had an affair with their co-star Raquel Leviss during the wedding of Seana Shay and Brock Davies.

The co-owner of TomTom responds, “This has no impact on me at all.”

Raquel and James Kennedy declared the breakdown of their engagement while filming the season 9 reunion in December 2021. After more than ten years together, Katie and Tom announced their separation two months later.

The Minnesotan native posted on Instagram in March 2021, “Well, this stinks. The victim is not me. I won’t make a depressing tune. I fully support Katie’s choice, and we’ve had frank, useful discussions about it. If she chose to stay with me while not being happy, it would be far more tragic.
How am I expected to sum up 12 years of love in an f king-prefabricated Instagram caption, he continued. The D-word hurts too much, therefore I’m not quite ready to say it.
Over the course of our relationship, we experienced some of the most wonderful, romantic, and enjoyable moments imaginable. I’m talking about joy on par with heaven. She gave me a lot of valuable advice on how to love and date better.

Raquel was later recognized by the Utah native for aiding her in terminating the relationship.
‘When you’re trying to figure out what to do and you see other people be strong with their convictions like that, you’re like, Alright, I can do it, I can do it,’ Katie told Us in April 2022. ‘When they announced at the reunion that they had split things up it was a bit empowering.
