Katie Maloney slams ex Tom Schwartz’s rumored love interest Jo Wenberg: ‘I will light her on fire’
Katie Maloney shared her two cents about Jo Wenberg, the friend who lives with her ex-husband Tom Schwartz, on Friday.
The 36-year-old Vanderpump Rules star appeared on Instagram fan account @realvanderpump leave a revealing comment about the stylist.
In a post theorizing that Schwartz, 40, hooked up with Raquel Leviss, 28, to hide an affair with Jo and cover up Raquel’s affair with Tom Sandoval, Maloney held nothing back.
He began his statement by writing: ‘Jo is creepy. I mean, none of us could bear to be around her.
Katie went on to criticize Jo, who Tom denies being romantically involved with, adding: “Her energy is on par with a drug addict.”

The scathing comment revealed what Jo said to comfort Katie last year after announcing her split from Schwartz.
Maloney wrote: “When Tom and I announced our divorce almost a year ago, the last thing he sent me was ‘Bieber loves you / I love you and I’m so supportive of your inner thoughts and visions / Live in the moment, you.’ You are a gem and I have always respected you. I love you. Xo Jo.”
Wrapping up her thoughts, Katie said, “She’s a psycho and I’m going to set her on fire with Rachel too.”
The part about “lighting her on fire” is based on a comment Katie had made earlier in the week while appearing on Watch What Happens Live.
Asked by host Andy Cohen what her reaction would be if she found out that Schwartz knew Raquel and Tom were dating but lied to protect Sandoval, she replied, “I’d set it on fire.”
The post Katie left her comment on included a series of photos and videos along with a speculative caption that begged the questions: ‘Could this have been a double cover? Schwartz and Raquel dating was a cover because Sandoval and Raquel were actually dating… while Schwartz and Jo were also dating? Let your double dates go under the radar?
Tom has denied being romantically involved with Jo, saying usweekly last month, ‘I just got out of a 12 year relationship. I can’t be committed, I can’t dive back into another relationship.
“We’re not living together and we’re not dating either, but she’s someone I appreciate on a deep level and she’s a really great human being, and we’re just hanging out,” he said at the time.
It later came out in a deleted scene from season 10’s Vanderpump Rules that Tom is in fact living with Wenberg.

Katie also revealed that she wasn’t surprised by Sandoval’s affair with Leviss on Wednesday’s episode of WWHL on Bravo.
“I wasn’t surprised,” Katie said. But the details were shocking. I wasn’t surprised it was Raquel.
Andy, 54, started the show by making it clear that the latest episode of Vanderpump Rules was not re-edited after the news broke on the matter.
“It was in what happened,” Andy said. ‘The interviews you did on tonight’s episode were before you found out about Tom [Sandoval] and Raquel’s adventure. Especially this comment. You said, ”I’m starting to see a pattern in Raquel. She seems like she’s only into guys that her friends are married to or interested in, and that’s a big red flag to me.

Andy asked Katie if anything else in this episode surprised her, given what she knows now.
‘Just her coming to Lala [Kent] call her mistress, I mean just the level of…stupidity,’ Katie said.
Andy said that the trip to Lake Havasu took place in the first week of August and asked Katie if she thought Raquel and Sandoval were having an affair at that time.
“That’s the question on everyone’s mind,” Katie said. I think maybe, maybe, or soon after.
Andy pointed out that Sandoval was wearing his lightning bolt necklace in the episode. Katie said Sandoval always had that necklace and said she believed Raquel wearing one was ‘fan’ behavior.
“She wants to emulate what he does,” Katie said.
Andy also asked how Sandoval’s ex-girlfriend, Ariana Madix, 37, was doing.
‘All things considered, she’s in a pretty good headspace. She is taking care of herself. I saw it yesterday and we are excited. She’s excited,” Katie said.
Shocking details: “I wasn’t surprised,” said Katie, 36. “But the details were shocking”

Andy asked him if he knew how the affair started.
“I heard a little bit of the origin story,” Katie said. ‘Maybe we’ll talk about it at the meeting.’
Andy said they were all at that Sandoval show at Bravo Con.
“I wasn’t,” Katie said. “I actively avoided watching that show.”
“I was there, I was down there on the floor with Ariana on one side of me and Raquel on the other side. So by all accounts the thing was going on during that time, that was mid-October,” Andy said.
‘Oh, at that time for sure,’ said Katie.
Andy then asked Katie if she thought her ex, Schwartz, 40, was just a pawn in all of this.
“Yeah, a part of me thinks he was tricked,” Katie said.
