Tom Schwartz and Katie Maloney are getting married. 

Yes, really. 

If you watch Vanderpump Rules online, you know that the show made a big deal about them getting married several seasons ago, but new details have emerged that have rendered the initial vows not legally binding.

However, the pair look set to make their union official, and it looks set to be televised once again. 

E! News is reporting that the pair obtained a marriage license in Las Vegas on Wednesday, July 24.

News of the couple's exchanging of vows on the Bravo reality series not being legally binding comes as a huge shock, but who dropped the explosive bombshell?

It was none other than former 'NSync star Lance Bass, who is well known to be friends with many of the reality series' cast members.

“We just found out Tom and Katie are not married,” he dished on the “Bleav in Reality Bytes” podcast earlier this month, adding that it could be “a little storyline” on season 8.

As for why they were not legally married, we have no idea, but in the words of Bass, "they did not send in their materials right, so, they are not married.”

The bombshell surprised many fans of the show, prompting Bass to apologize for making it public knowledge. 

“I didn’t know it was a secret,” Bass said on Strahan and Sara just last week.

“I don’t know reality television like that. I apologize, I’m sorry. You’ll just have to watch [Vanderpump Rules]. You’ll have to see the show to see what really happens.”

Given that everyone now knows the cast is assembling for a wedding in Las Vegas, it's likely that it will be more than just a small storyline on Vanderpump Rules Season 8. 

There will likely be a reason for the lack of legally binding nuptials, but it's hard not to speculate on what might have gone wrong. 

If you keep up to speed with the series, you will be well aware of Katie having trust issues with Tom following, and rightfully so after some of the $hit he's pulled. 

Could this be a reason, or will it be something more innocent?

What we do know, is that Vanderpump Rules is filming now, and is slated to premiere later this year. 

We also know that Billie Lee has quit the series, so don't be expecting her to be featured in any of the storylines.
