Katie Advocates for Body Positivity After 'Vanderpump' Co-Stars Criticize Her Weight Gain


When viewers first met Katie Maloney on Season 1 of Vanderpump Rules back in 2013, she was a waitress at SUR who just wanted her boyfriend Tom Schwarz to commit. Along with fellow servers and best friends Stassi Schroeder and Kristen Doute, the trio was an impenetrable clique who made the lives of their enemy co-workers miserable. 

Fast-forward seven years, and Katie and Tom have wed, she's dealt with the ebbs and flows of her friendships with Kristen and Stassi (which changes multiple times per season), and she's matured from some of her antics — except Tequila Katie, who still emerges from time to time. She's even become an advocate for body positivity, following the scathing comments co-star DJ James Kennedy made about her weight gain.
