Tom Sandoval and Ariana Madix were blamed for causing their Vanderpump Rules costars Katie Maloney and Tom Schwartz to feud — but the SUR bartenders are exclusively giving their side of the story to In Touch!
Katie, a beauty blogger, has ripped her now-husband in the past for what she felt was "putting Ariana's feelings before her own."

"I don't think Schwartz puts mine or anyone's feelings above Katie's. I think he was looking at the situation objectively and just genuinely disagreed with her. He took things too far at times and made a few remarks towards her that were out of line," the blonde beauty explains. "She said mean things, too. All relationships struggle with communication, mine included, and we all get in trouble when that breaks down."

The longtime couple adds while it was not fair for Katie to blame them for her relationship problems, "[we] don't think she actually believed that. Katie was under so much stress at that time and [we] think she misplaced her anger."
Everything appears to have worked out, considering they tied the knot back in August 2016.
"I just hoped that whatever they were going through or whatever issues had surfaced, that they would be able to truly resolve them before the big day. I love both of them and wanted it to be the happiest day of their lives and kick off a lifetime of happiness together," Tom says.

Stassi was the queen bee when the show first began, though has semi-chilled out since rekindling her friendship with Katie Maloney. She put her SURver days behind her and currently hosts a podcast called Straight Up With Stassi.
The blonde beauty was also romantically involved with her costar Jax Taylor at the start of the series.
