The Bachelor Nation x Vanderpump crossover you didn’t know you needed!
‘Vanderpump Rules’ star Katie Maloney stopped by the ‘Bachelor Happy Hour’ podcast where she caught up with co-hosts Becca Kufrin and Michelle Young.
The three talked about everything from reality TV friendships to public breakups to dating and everything in between.
As fans know, Katie and ex-husband Tom Schwartz announced they filed for divorce earlier this year after 12 years together and three years of marriage.
After being in a very public relationship on “Vanderpump Rules” for the past decade, Katie has shared an update on her dating life with Becca and Michelle.
Becca asked Katie if she had started dating again and Katie said, “I’m not trying to get a boyfriend or a relationship, but just having fun. I like going out and flirting and I went on a date. To me, it’s just fun. All the guys are around 28, which is good because there’s no pressure there.
And Michelle chimed in, asking if Katie was “professional dating apps or no dating apps?”
Katie responded candidly, revealing, “No apps for me, at least for now. They freak me out. At the time I was dating Tom it was pre-applications so I had no experience with applications. I’m old fashioned though.
She went on to say, “All the people on the apps are around the world, I prefer to go to places I like to hang out and I imagine if they’re there that would be the company I want to be with. I have no qualms about going up to a guy I think is cute and saying hello.
During their conversation, Katie and Becca also bonded after going through some very public breakups and luckily Katie said she was in a place where she didn’t care what other people thought of her and her. Tom’s separation.
She said: “I’ve had to train over the years to really not care what the public thinks. That’s not to say I never think about it, but when it came to it , I knew people were going to have opinions and no matter what other people had to say about it, it’s ultimately my life.
