Katie Maloney is under fire after seemingly spotlighting estranged husband Tom Schwartz in a low moment amid their split.
In a clip shared to the Vanderpump Rules star’s Instagram Story earlier this month, Tom was seen sitting in the jacuzzi of their $1.9 million Valley Village home, where he gave a nod to his upcoming move from the residence, saying it was likely that his dip in their hot tub would be his last.
“Well, that’s probably the last time I’ll ever be in here… I’ll have to get a new hot tub,” Tom said as he looked up at his wife.
After the clip was then shared on Reddit by a user who deemed Tom to be “so f-cking pathetic,” numerous other Redditors wondered why Katie would share such a clip.
“I think sometimes we forget these are real people going through actual events in their lives. This is sad,” one person noted.
“Why would she post this?” another wondered.
And a third agreed, saying, “I had the exact same thought…. This feels like a very personal and sad moment.”
Others said that Tom didn’t appear happy, and one person stated that he looked downright “unwell.”
“This is actual kinda sad. I know he’s a terrible person but he looks like he’s falling apart,” someone noted.
“Ugh. This makes me feel real sad for the guy,” a fan added.
As the comments continued, Katie’s motives continued to be questioned.
“Wtf was the point of her posting this?” someone asked.
“This is just mean,” another stated.
Amid the controversy, Katie was seemingly unbothered as she continued to explore Europe in the days that followed Stassi Schroeder and Beau Clark‘s wedding in Rome.
“Lost count of how many Aperol Spritz I have had,” Katie captioned a May 14 post, which featured a slideshow of photos and a video of the reality star walking alongside a Venice canal and through the buildings of the city.
Vanderpump Rules season 10 is expected to go into production sometime in the coming months.
