Tom Schwartz is adjusting to single life.
After recently separating from his Vanderpump Rules costar Katie Maloney, Schwartz admitted he has a lot to learn about being alone. "I'm sort of relearning how to be single, which is strange," the 39-year-old told Page Six at the opening of Schwartz & Sandy's.
Schwartz's co-star and co-business owner, Tom Sandoval, added: "He hasn't even had time to be single," pointing to their bar's opening as Schwartz's main priority as of late.
"This has been a great thing to focus on," Schwartz added.
"After 12 years on an adventure through life together Tom and I are ending our marriage. 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," she wrote in the statement.

"Although we may be on different paths we will continue to love and support one another's happiness," she added. "Thank you for all the kind words and support."
Schwartz, 39, addressed the breakup in his own statement, revealing Maloney was the one who made the choice to separate.
"Fully respect Katie's decision and we've had healthy, productive conversations about it. It would be far sadder if she decided to stay with me whilst not happy," he wrote in part, adding, "We had some of the most blissful, romantic, fun times humanly possible over the course of our relationship."
"Yes, it was very painful, no one loves getting divorced. But I think we might be some of the best divorcees ever," he said. "We still have an incredible friendship."
Schwartz added: "Yeah, it was rough in the beginning, I'm not gonna lie, but we still have a great bond, we still text, talk, we have joint custody of the dogs. It's really good. There's zero animosity, it's not awkward, there's no tension."
