Former ‘Pump Rules’ star Brittany Cartwright recently revealed that she’s no longer as close with her former co-star and matron of honor, Katie Maloney. In a recent interview with Us Weekly, Cartwright shared her feelings about the situation, saying that she is “sad” about the way things have turned out.
Cartwright and Maloney’s friendship dates back to their time on the hit reality show, ‘Vanderpump Rules’. The two were close throughout the show’s run and were even part of each other’s weddings. Maloney served as Cartwright’s matron of honor when she married Jax Taylor in June 2019, and Cartwright was a bridesmaid in Maloney’s wedding to Tom Schwartz in August 2016.
However, it seems that their once-close friendship has hit a rough patch. Cartwright revealed to Us Weekly that she and Maloney are “not as close as we used to be,” but she remains hopeful that they will be able to repair their relationship.
“It’s just one of those things where life happens,” Cartwright explained. “We’re still friends, we still love each other, but we’re just not as close as we used to be. And that’s OK, that happens in life.”
Cartwright went on to say that she was “sad” about the situation because of the important role that Maloney played in her life.
“She was my matron of honor, and we were so close,” Cartwright said. “But sometimes things happen in life that you can’t control, and you just have to accept it and move on.”
While Cartwright didn’t go into detail about what may have caused the rift between her and Maloney, she did acknowledge that being in the public eye can put a strain on even the strongest of friendships.
“Being on a reality show and having your life on display for everybody to see can be really tough,” Cartwright said. “It puts a lot of pressure on your friendships, and it can make things really difficult.”
Despite the distance between them, Cartwright remains optimistic about the future of their friendship.
“I’m hopeful that we can repair things,” she said. “We still love each other, and we still want the best for each other. We’re just not as close as we used to be.”
Cartwright’s situation is not uncommon among reality TV stars. The intense pressure of being in the public eye, combined with the added stress of having your personal life on display for millions of viewers, can make it difficult to maintain close relationships.
However, it’s important to remember that friendships are like any other relationship—they require effort, communication, and understanding. If you find yourself in a situation where a friendship has hit a rough patch, it’s important to take the time to reflect on what may have caused the distance and make an effort to repair the relationship if it’s something that’s important to you.
In the case of Cartwright and Maloney, it’s clear that they both value their friendship and want to maintain a positive relationship with each other. While it may take time and effort to repair the rift between them, their willingness to work through their issues is a testament to the strength of their bond.
In the end, Cartwright’s story serves as a reminder that even the strongest of friendships can face challenges, but with effort, communication, and a willingness to work through those challenges, it’s possible to come out on the other side with an even stronger bond.
