Tom Schwartz couldn’t ‘imagine life’ without Katie Maloney pre-split

Tom Schwartz admitted he couldn’t “imagine life” without estranged wife Katie Maloney weeks before she made their breakup public. 

The “Vanderpump Rules” star, 39, reveals as much in a preview for “Winter House” Season 2

“Where are you and Katie right now?” asks “Summer House” OG Kyle Cooke, to which Schwartz responds, “I just can’t imagine my life without her.”

The Bravo spinoff — which convened cast members from “Pump Rules,” “Summer House,” “Southern Charm” and several new faces  — was filmed in Vermont this past February and March. 

Maloney, 35, announced her split from Schwartz on March 15 and filed for divorce one week later. 

The former couple began dating in September 2010 and tied the knot in front of Bravo cameras in August 2016. After realizing they didn’t have a valid marriage license, they got legally married in Las Vegas in July 2019. 

In April, Maloney — who has dipped her toe back into the dating pool in recent months — insisted to Page Six that she and Schwartz will “always have each other’s backs” post-separation. 

“I’m glad that we have had time to take our time, do it together, untangle together and not have it be this abrupt, cold turkey situation,” she said, adding that it was a “relief” to acclimate to single life before Season 10 began filming. 

In July, Schwartz told us that he’s “relearning how to be single” since Maloney filed for divorce.

Part of his untethered new beginning included a steamy interaction with “Pump Rules” co-star Raquel Leviss at Scheana Shay’s Aug. 23 wedding to Brock Davies.

The “Vanderpump Rules” couple went public with their split in March.

“Raquel and Schwartz 100 percent hooked up during Scheana’s wedding,” a production source previously told Page Six.

In the July 22 episode of Shay’s “Scheananigans” podcast, Schwartz opened up about his split from Maloney and revealed that their relationship may have caused him to overlook Leviss.

“I was so caught up in my own little world and I was married — I never took time to get to know Raquel,” the Schwartz & Sandy’s co-founder told Shay, 37.

“She was always cool. I just never really took [the] time to invest in her. That’s a horrible way to phrase it. I never really gave her a chance,” he continued. “She has so much depth and character. I think I wrote her off.”

The aftermath of Maloney’s divorce filing is expected to play out on
