Vanderpump Rules star Katie Maloney was called a “bully” by her husband Tom Schwartz’s best friend Tom Sandoval after she got James Kennedy fired from SUR. Andy Cohen questioned Katie on Watch What Happens Live on March 4 on whether or not she was actually a bully – and she was stunned by the accusation.
Katie, 32, was visibly shocked when Andy, 50, asked her if she was a bully for excluding James, 27, because of their beef. The VPR star claimed she was just sticking up for herself.
The WWHL host also grilled Katie about her history with ultimatums. The SURver famously gave Schwartz, 36, the decision of marrying her or breaking up in 2015. “Given everything that happened this summer, I think it's only fair that I give him a little shove and a little bit of an ultimatum,” she told Andy at the time.
Sandoval, 35, told Us Weekly he felt horrible after he yelled at Katie in a heated exchange shown in the midseason trailer. “The next day I woke up I was pretty depressed about that, obviously I love Katie,” he said.
Katie was not happy with Sandoval when he invited James on a trip to Mexico. “I can say whatever the f**k I want, to anybody. But if somebody calls me fat, I’m getting their a** fired,” Sandoval screamed at Katie, mocking her.
Katie responded, “I didn’t get him fired, he got himself fired!” As fans of VPR know, Katie gave Lisa Vanderpump an ultimatum to either fire James for allegedly fat-shaming her or lose Katie. Lisa, 58, ultimately decided to let go of the DJ in order to keep Katie.
