But through it all, Katie and Stassi remain the best of friends. Even though some viewers have a problem with that.
"Sometimes they come up and say, ‘I don’t like that Stassi. I don’t know how you’re friends with her,’ " Maloney said. "What if I came up to you and said, ‘I don’t know how you’re friends with that person sitting next to you’? It’s not really insulting, but it’s just kind of silly."
Season 2 begins Tuesday, Nov. 4, as part of a two-hour block of programming on Bravo. At 9 p.m., it’s the fourth-season premiere of “Real Housewives of Beverly Hills,” which spills over into the second-season premiere of “Vanderpump Rules” at 10 p.m.
The two of them were friends long before the show began production and they remain friends today.
"I wouldn’t be friends with somebody that’s a complete nightmare," Maloney said. "She definitely has more to her than that. But people want to watch their unsolicited advice about who you should be friend with or who should be dating who."
The Utah native has adjusted her goals a bit. Trying to find work as an actress in Hollywood can be "debilitating sometimes. You go out on countless auditions for months upon months and you don’t get anything."
So she’s trying to get work doing hair and makeup for film and TV. And working at SUR to pay the bills.
"I’m still working here. Still paying bills waiting tables," she said.
And, of course, Maloney continues to appear in "Vanderpump Rules."
"Would I do it all over again?" she said. "Definitely."
