On Friday, Katie Maloney shared her two cents on Jo Wenberg, the friend of her ex-husband Tom Schwartz.
The 36-year-old Vanderpump Rules star took to Instagram fan account @realvanderpump to leave a telling comment about the hairstylist.
On a post theorizing that Schwartz, 40, dated Raquel Leviss, 28, to hide a romance with Jo and to cover up Raquel’s affair with Tom Sandoval, Maloney held nothing back.
She began her statement by writing, “Jo is scary.” I mean none of us could bear to be near her.
Katie continued to tear up Jo, who Tom denies ever having a romantic relationship with, adding, “Her energy is on par with a crackhead.”

The scathing comment revealed what Jo said to comfort Katie last year after announcing her split from Schwartz.
Maloney wrote: “When Tom and I announced our divorce almost a year ago, the last thing she sent me was ‘Bieber loves you/I love you, and I’m so supportive of your thoughts and your inner visions / live in the moment, you “I’m a gem and have always respected you. I love you. Xo Jo.”‘
Concluding her thoughts, Katie said, “She’s a psycho and I’m going to turn it on with Rachel too.”
The lighting “her fire” piggybacks on a comment Katie made earlier in the week during her appearance on Watch What Happens Live.
When host Andy Cohen asked what her reaction would be if she found out that Schwartz knew Raquel and Tom were hooking up but had lied to protect Sandoval, she replied, “I’d set him on fire.”
The post where Katie left her comment included a series of photos and videos as well as a speculative caption that posed the questions, ‘Could this have been a double cover??? The meeting between Schwartz and Raquel was a cover because Sandoval and Raquel were actually dating… whereas Schwartz and Jo were dating? Allowing their double dates to go unnoticed?!!!’
Tom denied having a romantic relationship with Jo, telling UsWeekly last month, “I just got out of a 12-year relationship.” I can’t be committed – I can’t dive back into another relationship.
“We don’t live together and we don’t date either, but he’s just someone I deeply appreciate and he’s a really cool human being, and we just hang out together,” he once told the time.
It later came out in a deleted scene from Season 10 of Vanderpump Rules that Tom is actually living with Wenberg.

Katie also revealed she wasn’t shocked by Sandoval’s affair with Leviss during Wednesday’s episode of WWHL on Bravo.
“I wasn’t shocked,” Katie said. “But the details were shocking. I wasn’t shocked that it was Raquel.
Andy, 54, started the show by clarifying that the latest episode of Vanderpump Rules has not been re-edited following news of the affair.
“That’s when it happened,” Andy said. ‘The interviews you did in tonight’s episode were before you found out about Tom [Sandoval] and Raquel’s case. Especially this comment. You said, “I’m starting to see a pattern in Raquel. It seems like she’s only interested in men her friends are either married to or interested in, and that’s a big red flag for me.

Andy asked Katie if anything else about this episode blew her mind, given what she now knew.
‘Just his coming to Lala [Kent] to call her a mistress, I mean just the level of…stupidity,’ Katie said.
Andy said the trip to Lake Havasu took place the first week of August and asked Katie if she thought Raquel and Sandoval were having an affair at that time.
“That’s the question everyone is asking,” Katie said. “I think maybe, maybe, or soon after.”
Andy pointed out that Sandoval wore his lightning necklace in the episode. Katie said Sandoval still had that necklace and said she thought Raquel wearing one was “fan” behavior.
“She wants to emulate what he does,” Katie said.
Andy also asked how Sandoval’s former girlfriend Ariana Madix, 37, was doing.
“All things considered, she is in a very good state of mind. She takes care of herself. I saw her yesterday and we are delighted. She’s excited,” Katie said.
Shocking details: “I wasn’t shocked,” said Katie, 36. “But the details were shocking”

Andy asked her if she knew how the affair started.
“I heard a bit of the origin story,” Katie said. “Maybe we’ll talk about it at the meeting.”
Andy said they were all at that Sandoval show at Bravo Con.
“I wasn’t,” Katie said. “I actively avoided seeing this show.”
“I was there, I was there on the floor with Ariana on one side of me and Raquel on the other side. So by all accounts the case was happening at that time, it was mid-October,” Andy said.
“Oh, at that time for sure,” Katie said.
Andy then asked Katie if she thought her ex, Schwartz, 40, was just a pawn in all of this.
“Yeah, part of me thinks he was duped,” Katie said.
