On Vanderpump Rules Season 5 Episode 17, Tom Schwartz and Tom Sandoval engaged in an epic blowout over accusations of cheating.
While in drag, naturally.
There was a brief moment in Vanderpump Rules Season 5 Episode 17 that will truly never be replicated in the history of reality TV.
For better or worse.
Tom Sandoval, with a face full of makeup, kicked in a bathroom door to find Tom Schwartz, who he likened to a battered wife, on the floor.
Schwartz, of course, is not a battered wife. He is a pathetic dude whose fiancee is pissed he slept with some other girl in Las Vegas.
To liken him to a woman who experiences actual abuse is insulting on so many levels, yet it underscores how much Sandoval loves him.
They didn’t end up in bed together, but they did share an embrace that was years in the making, exemplifying one of TV’s top bromances.
If you watch Vanderpump Rules online, you know that Sandoval probably loves Schwartz even more than Katie Maloney loves Schwartz.
Or Schwartz loves Schwartz.
As a result, he was the one running point in the effort to diffuse the situation with Katie and the girls that erupted on last week’s episode.
Stassi Schroeder also realized, in a rare moment of self-awareness and clarity, that her past fights with Katie caused her to miss out.
Not on something for herself, but on one of the painful moments (Schwartz’s alleged cheating) when Katie needed her most as a friend.
Of course, things soon got all kinds of awkward when Schwartz walked in to apologize to Katie for all of the things he did to upset her.
She was not having it.
The next day, they did have a real talk in which Katie and Tom agreed to bury the hatchet, even if he wouldn’t admit what he did in Vegas.
Meanwhile, Kristen confronted Tom Sandoval about trying to sabotage her romance with Carter, and that was about as weird as it sounds.
Sandoval is not above drama, but when it comes to Kristen Doute, he’d rather leave well enough alone, and move on with their lives.
As he put it, this was as if Doute was trying to have an argument with herself. Not an inaccurate observation, and wouldn’t be a first.
Back in Los Angeles, Lisa Vanderpump and Ken Todd talked about partnering up with Tom Sandoval to open a new bar in West Hollywood.
Much as you want to shoot that idea down with jokes right off the bat, it actually seems like a partnership that could work out for everyone.
Unlike Schwartz, Jax Taylor and James Kennedy, Tom has never flaked out or irredeemably humiliated himself at his place of business.
Low standards, we know. But true.
He can also be incredibly charming and hard-working when properly motivated, and the idea of running his own place with the boss?
We’d check it out. Just saying.

If you watch Teen Mom 2 online, you probably already know that Jenelle Evans and her infamous mother, Barbara Evans, don’t enjoy the closest of mother-daughter bonds.
In fact, we’re not sure if they’ve ever had a conversation that didn’t escalate into a full-throated screaming match.
Jenelle’s eldest son, Jace, has lived with Barbara his entire life, but over the past year, Jenelle has ramped up her efforts to be awarded sole physical custody of the 7-year-old.
Last year, Jenelle boasted about “fighting two custody battles at once,” one with Barbara, the other with her Nathan Griffith, the father of her second child.
Despite frequently and publicly exercising poor judgment (such as when she boasted about fighting two custody battles at once on social media), Jenelle was successful in her efforts to limit Griffith’s parental rights.
She’s had no such luck in her battle with Babs.
On last night’s episode of Teen Mom 2, Jenelle and Barbara once again had it out over what’s best for Jace, but this time, there were lawyers present.
Both of the Evans women gave depositions, with Jenelle reportedly answering difficult questions about her lengthy arrest record and past issues with substance abuse and violence.
(Cameras weren’t allowed in the courtroom, but Jenelle’s lawyer congratulated her on her grace under pressure.)
But while we didn’t get to see Jenelle plead her case in front of the judge, we did get to hear her share her thoughts on the Babs situation when her conversations with David Eason and friends.
Jenelle talks about her strained relationship with her mother just about every week, but this time around, she really went in, at one point going so far as to claim that Barbara only wants custody of Jace because of the money she gets from MTV.
It was a low blow that didn’t entirely make sense (Barbara would likely continue to appear on the show and receive a salary, even if she lost custody of Jace.), but it’s not like Babs took the high road.
In fact, Jenelle says she told the judge she has doubts about Eason’s trustworthiness (but was unable to offer any specifics as to why) and described Jenelle’s economic situation as “unstable.”
Now, there are a lot or criticisms that can be fairly leveled at Jenelle Evans.
(See: The aforementioned arrest record and lengthy history of substance abuse.)
But it’s tough to argue that the girl’s financial situation is anything less than solid.
She’s been earning a six-figure salary from MTV since before Jace entered the world, to say nothing of her many other revenue streams.
Jenelle might be insane – but she’s also insanely well-off.
Of course, thus far that hasn’t been enough to convince the judge that she’s capable of providing a stable environment for Jace, and that seems unlikely to change any time soon.
