Katie Maloney compared Jo Wenberg to a “crack head” amid speculation that the hairstylist has been romantically involved with her ex-husband, Tom Schwartz.
The “Vanderpump Rules” star reacted to a Bravo fan post on Instagram over the weekend, which theorized that Schwartz only hooked up with Raquel Leviss to cover up his alleged romance with Wenberg – along with Leviss’ own affair with Tom Sandoval.
“Jo is spooky. I mean none of us could stand to be around her,” Maloney wrote in the comments section of a post from @realvanderpump.
“Her energy is on par with a crack head.”
The former SUR waitress, 36, revealed Wenberg sent her a text “almost a year ago” when she and Schwartz, 40, announced their divorce.
The message allegedly read, “Bieber loves you / I love you, and I’m so supporting of your inner thoughts and and visions / live in the moment, you’re a gem and I’ve always respected you. I love you. Xo Jo.”
Maloney concluded her comment by calling Wenberg “a psycho” who she would “light” on fire, along with Leviss.
The original post featured a series of “Pump Rules” pics and videos accompanied by the speculative caption, “Could it have been a double cover??? Schwartz and Raquel dating was a cover because Sandoval and Raquel were actually dating… while also Schwartz and Jo were dating? Allowing their double dates to go unnoticed?!!! 🤯😵😫.”
The TomTom restaurant owner has denied ever hooking up with Wenberg, whom he has known since 2015.
“Jo is a badass hairstylist. … I think she’s a beautiful soul,” he told Us Weekly in February.
“We’re not living together and we’re not dating either, but she’s just someone who I appreciate on a deep level and she’s a really cool human being, and we’re just hanging out,” he added.
Maloney’s latest comments came shortly after her BFF and co-star Ariana Madix dumped Sandoval, 40, after finding out her longtime beau had been cheating on her with Leviss, 28, since at least July 2022.
As WM Leader previously reported, Madix, 37, was watching her now-ex’s cover band, Tom Sandoval & The Most Extras, perform in West Hollywood, Calif., on March 1 when she accidentally stumbled upon a sexually explicit video of the former beauty pageant queen on his phone.
Both Leviss and Sandoval have since apologized for their entanglement — dubbed “Scandoval” — and WM Leader can confirm that Bravo cameras have been rolling to document the messy fallout.
Maloney previously admitted that she “wasn’t shocked” to hear that Leviss and Sandoval were engaged in a “full-on affair” in the midst of his nearly decade-long relationship with Madix.
“Vanderpump Rules” airs Wednesdays at 9 p.m. ET on Bravo.
