Ahead of the reunion taping in Los Angeles on March 16, Schwartz chatted exclusively with about his reunion prep process, and he revealed that he did have some words of wisdom for his former friend-with-benefits, Jo.

How Tom Schwartz felt going into the Vanderpump Rules Season 11 reunion

Following the dramatic 10th season reunion, when Schwartz found himself at odds with many of the other cast members, the Schwartz & Sandy’s co-owner was feeling “good” ahead of the Season 11 reunion.

“I feel f-cking good today! I’m in good spirits. I feel like I’m oozing optimism lately, I’m in a good head state,” he told “I think I’m on good terms with everybody. I f-cking love these people! They’re like my family. The word is — this is kind of cheesy — gratitude. I’m feeling super grateful to be 11 seasons in and to do a f-cking TV show with people I love.”
