Say it ain’t so, Tom Schwartz and Katie Maloney!
During a recent interview with the REALITY BYTES! podcast, Lance Bass claimed the two Vanderpump Rules stars — who had a ceremony in August 2016 — are NOT legally married!
The former ‘NSYNC band member dished:
“We just found out Tom and Katie are not married… They did not send in their materials right, so, they are not married.”
In fact, the musician said this debacle “might be a little story line” on the next season of their hit Bravo series.
Speaking of reality TV marriages, in June, the 40-year-old officiated the wedding of fellow Pump Rules cast members Jax Taylor and Brittany Cartwright in Kentucky.
Cartwright told People that month:
“[Lance has] become one of our really, really great friends, and he has really stepped up for us in this moment when we needed somebody. He stepped up and is such a nice, kind person.”
Though boss Lisa Vanderpump — who officiated Tom and Katie’s ceremony — was supposed to do the honors at Jax and Brittany’s, she was unable to due to her mother’s sudden death.
However, the Real Housewives of Beverly Hills alum and husband, Ken Todd, still made it to the bash. Jax and Brittany’s rep told the publication:
“Lisa and [husband] Ken made it to the wedding and surprised Jax and Brittany… They were ecstatic and so touched. It was emotional.”
Legally married or not, in August 2018, Schwartz and Maloney celebrated the two-year anniversary of their nuptials.
He wrote on Instagram:
“2 years strong bub! Let’s keep it going now until infinity. I’m so happy all the choices I’ve made in my life, good and bad, lead me to you. I should be whispering this into your ear but instead I’m writing it on Instagram as you lay 2 feet away from me. Such is life in 2018. I’ll tell you this all to your face drunkenly later tonight while we are celebrating the love of @rocmaloneyphoto & @namasteji . You are my favorite person in the world to do nothing with. And that’s something. Love you deeply. Happy anniversary Bubba”
“Happy 2 year anniversary to the love of my life, my best friend, my ninja turtle, my special guy, Postmates partner, and the only one I wanna grow old with. You have shown me so much love and gratitude over the years and can’t imagine my life without you. Here’s to many more bubba!”
