Tom Schwartz Shares The Latest On "Tom Tom” & Sorry, ‘Vanderpump Rules' Fans, You Can’t Make A Reservation Yet
The Season 5 finale of Vanderpump Rules finally gave audiences more than a peek at the highly anticipated Tom-Kat wedding and a somber look at the last days of the Shays. But an unexpected proposition arose when restauranteur extraordinaire Lisa Vanderpump offered Tom Sandoval and Tom Schwartz a partnership in a potential new bar, tentatively named "Tom Tom." But pump the brakes before you make plans with your squad for a the new spot's version of a Pump-tini. Plans for Tom Tom are still in the works.
Speaking to Bravo's The Daily Dish, Schwartz said that he, Sandoval, and Vanderpump have checked out a venue near the Real Housewife of Beverly Hills' other establishment PUMP and have had some "creative conversations." However, he admitted that the trio has only discussed Tom Tom once since his August wedding to Katie Maloney, but suggested fans "stay tuned."
The model said he was too excited to finally be married that he couldn't process Vanderpump's business partnership proposal at first. He told The Daily Dish:
"I mean it's so up-in-the-air, but at first I was just like, 'Oh my God, I can't do this. I don't want to tarnish your reputation that you spent 30 years building.' Plus, also, in that moment I was emotionally fried. I just couldn't even process what she was proposing to me. There was so much going on in that moment, I could not process it, but I'm excited about it. And we'll see what happens."
In the meantime, Schwartz is busy modeling his business savvy after the Vanderpumps. "Any opportunity to work for Lisa or Ken — I really look up to them. They've had so much success," Schwartz said.
Mrs. Maloney-Schwartz, who worked as Vanderpump's assistant throughout Season 5, chimed in on their joint interview for The Daily Dish to express her pride in and slight jealousy of her new husband. "It's like a massive compliment for them to approach you and be like, 'We want to do business with you.' I'm over here like 'Remember me?'"
Although details remain sparse about the future of Tom Tom, maybe Vanderpump and the Toms will spill the tea when the reunion show begins on Monday, Apr. 3.
