Vanderpump Rules star Tom Schwartz denies that he is dating hairstylist Jo Wenberg after rumors of them being together made headlines online.
With Tom Schwartz and Katie Maloney’s divorce playing out on Vanderpump Rules, the former refuted rumors that he is dating hairstylist Jo Wenberg. Tom and Katie dated for five years before tying the knot in 2016. However, Katie filed for divorce from Tom in 2022. She cited irreconcilable differences as the reason for wanting out of their marriage. The former couple reached a divorce settlement in September 2022 and have remained good friends since their split. Since his divorce from Katie, Tom has been in the news over his activities with other women.
Tom and Vanderpump Rules‘ Raquel Leviss sparked rumors of a relationship after making out at Scheana Shay’s wedding. Recently, Tom was in the news again after rumors emerged that he was dating hairstylist Jo. Tom and Jo’s relationship was questioned after the latter appeared in a video Raquel shared on her Instagram Stories from a concert in Los Angeles in December 2022. Tom has finally responded to the rumors and denied that he and Jo are an item. During a chat with Us Weekly, Tom described Jo as a “bad*** hairstylist” before adding, “I think she’s a beautiful soul.” However, Tom noted that he and Jo were neither living together nor dating. Still, he maintained that she is someone he appreciates on a deep level, adding, “She’s a really cool human being, and we’re just hanging out.”
VPR’s Tom Schwartz Doesn’t Want To Be In Relationship Right Now
Tom’s clarification about his relationship with Jo came after the Vanderpump Rules season 10 episode on February 22 showed him telling Scheana that he was up until 4 a.m. hanging out with Jo. However, he denied hooking up with her. During his chat with Us Weekly, Tom explained why he couldn’t be in a committed relationship so soon after ending his 12-year relationship with Katie. He said, “It wouldn’t be fair to the other person ‘cause I’m kind of consumed with business and my family, and I’m kind of falling in love with myself all over again.”
It isn’t too surprising that Tom continues to be associated with dating rumors. The 40-year-old is currently single, so there is every chance he would make news headlines whenever he is pictured or spotted with any woman. However, it is great Tom continues to stay calm and clarify his relationships with the women he has been linked with since his divorce from Katie was finalized. Tom seems intent on not rushing into a relationship but is eager to have more time for himself and his business.
At the moment, no one knows if and when Tom feels it is the right time to be in another committed relationship. The Vanderpump Rules star looks like he is fine with how things are and doesn’t feel perturbed by talks suggesting he should date again after his divorce. It must also be noted that Tom has been respectful toward Katie after their divorce and ended his fling with Raquel after his ex-wife expressed her annoyance toward it. Hopefully, any relationship he begins going forward is one that won’t upset Katie or negatively affect their amicable post-divorce friendship.
Vanderpump Rules airs Wednesdays at 9 p.m. EST on Bravo.
