Watch: Katie Maloney Filled With "Hatred" After Tom & Raquel Hookup

Katie Maloney wants ex Tom Schwartz to move on, just not with someone in their friend group.

The Vanderpump Rules star made her feelings about that very clear on the Bravo series' Feb. 22 episode after co-star Scheana Shay encouraged Schwartz to have a post-divorce fling with Raquel Leviss during a 2022 appearance on her podcast.

"It's a total act of betrayal," Katie said in a confessional. "Scheana was a bridesmaid—my bridesmaid—in my wedding. And when Scheana went through her divorce, I supported her."

In fact, Katie later told Raquel to her face it would be "f--king weird" if she hooked up with Schwartz, adding, "I'm not ready to see that or be there just yet."

However, Scheana insisted that Katie already gave her stamp of approval on Raquel dating her ex-husband.

"Katie was the one, by the way, when we were in Vegas for the Vanderpump à Paris opening, she was like, 'I saw some rumors about Raquel and Schwartz online, and honestly if it was true, I would embrace it,'" Scheana later claimed during a walk with Raquel. "'He needs to start dating.' She was the one, first of all, who pushed me to then bring it up to you."

Even more enraged after listening to Schwartz's full interview with Scheana, Katie vented to Lala Kent over a FaceTime call.

"A friend wouldn't do this," she stated. "A friend wouldn't bring him on a podcast when he's vulnerable like this and try to coerce him into saying s--t. She needs to stay the f--k out my s--t. We don't need her. She wants to be supportive. Be supportive over there."

But her rant didn't end there. "She's an evil, evil little troll," the 36-year-old added. "Scheana, you're a s---ty person. You're a s---ty friend, and it's fine because karma's gonna come for you, and I'll watch your world burn and I'll smile."

Katie finally confronted Scheana during a night out to watch Tom Sandoval's band play a local show. "Get the f--k out of my divorce with Tom," Katie snapped at her former friend. "I'm really proud of where we're coming and you're derailing everything. You're meddling like a little troll. A little f--king troll. I'm done with you."

After storming off, Katie told her ex, "Tom, she's a f--king snake and I'm done with her."

See how their feud plays out when Vanderpump Rules airs Wednesdays at 9 p.m. on Bravo.
