Earlier this year, Stassi Schroeder‘s mother, Dayna Schroeder took to social media to reveal how she had an unpleasant interaction with Tom at the wedding, noting how he seemed to have purposefully refused to give her an umbrella.
In a comment on a Pump Rules meme praising Tom’s “best best man” behavior, Dayna threw some shade Tom’s way, noting how he was not the “best” man he claimed himself to be back in March.
“[Tom] refused to give me an umbrella, even when my wonderful future son in law asked Tom to give me one!” she wrote in the comment. “He looked right at us and gave it to someone else over and over again, on purpose with that smirk little smile of his. (Don’t like the daughter… take it out on her mother) not nice.”
Tom then responded to the critique from Dayna in a recent episode of Watch What Happens Live, defending himself against the accusation. He noted how he was grabbing every umbrella and fan he could find. He tried to evenly disperse them among the crowd, and he wasn’t intentionally trying to avoid Dayna.
“I heard about that because I didn’t go get her an umbrella or something,” shared Tom. “I brought umbrellas myself. I grabbed every umbrella I could find at that castle and I brought fans and stuff, and I was trying to hand them out to people. I’m not going to hand an umbrella and a fan to the same person. I was trying to space out.”
“I was just walking around — No, if she took it that way, I didn’t plan it that way,” he explained.
“I don’t think anybody else remembered that,” Ariana added.
