ARE they or aren’t they?
One day after Vanderpump Rules star Katie Maloney teased some hope that she is “feeling really loved and supported” following a lunch date with her recently estranged husband Tom Schwartz, photos from the gathering paint a more complicated picture.

Katie, 35, and Tom, 39, were spotted sharing a meal together in Studio City, California over the weekend.
Both were casually dressed, with Tom wearing a light blue patterned sweatshirt over gray sweatpants, and Katie wearing a black sweatshirt coupled with white pants that featured the likenesses of Leonardo DiCaprio and Claire Danes from their big screen version of Romeo + Juliet.
The two kept their sunglasses on as they dined outside.
But perhaps most noticeably, the two seemed to keep their distance from each other and at times did not seem to be enjoying their reunion.
An eyewitness told TMZ the two were mainly on their phones during the lunch. And while they talked at points, they were not affectionate.
Katie and Tom announced their breakup via separate Instagram posts last week, after The Sun exclusively revealed that their relationship was on the rocks.
Katie told her followers: “After 12 years on an adventure through life together, Tom and I are ending our marriage.”
She added: “This ending is not met with resentment or animosity, no sides to choose.
“We have deep admiration for one another that will always remain and we cherish our friendship.”
LORD OF THE RINGS
The couple had fueled breakup rumors for weeks after the podcast host shared cryptic quotes about divorce and showed off photos that emphasized her without a wedding ring.
Katie tied the knot to the TomTom co-founder in 2016, although the pair never officially filed their documents, and had to have another ceremony in 2019 to legally seal the deal.
Katie and Tom’s troubled marriage has been well documented on Vanderpump Rules.
Before their split was confirmed, the pair dealt with numerous issues including infidelity.
But during their lunch reunion, Tom was apparently still wearing his wedding ring.
Shortly after their meet-up, Katie opened up on Instagram, answering fan questions with thinly filled responses that seem to evoke a positive aftermath of her lunch.
When one fan asked a simple: “How are you?” Katie, 35, replied, “I’m actually doing really good. Feeling really loved and supported.
“I feel very hopeful.”
