“Summer House: Martha’s Vineyard” star Jordan Emanuel is setting the record straight on her relationship status with fellow Bravolebrity Tom Schwartz.
“We are 100 percent friendly,” the model and DJ, 31, said on Page Six’s “Virtual Reali-Tea” podcast. “We just bond over music or when I have a new set, I’ll send it to him.”
Emanuel has grown close with Schwartz, 40, since entering the world of reality TV.
“I love him,” she said. “He’s just so sweet.”
Social media users spotted the former Playmate of the Year and the “Vanderpump Rules” star hanging out at a New York City bar following the latter’s April 5 “Watch What Happens Live with Andy Cohen” appearance, leading some to believe a romance was brewing.
However, Emanuel reiterated that their dynamic is strictly platonic — and mostly rooted in their shared love for music.
“Literally, most of our time is articulating our favorite music or, like, karaoke-ing or something like that,” she said of the Schwartz & Sandy’s co-owner.
Emanuel noted that the Schwartz fans see on TV is “fully how he is” off-camera as well.
“Sometimes that does get him in trouble,” she explained, acknowledging his involvement in best friend Tom Sandoval’s headline-making cheating scandal.

Schwartz notably knew about Sandoval’s affair with co-star Raquel Leviss months before it came to light.
The shocking betrayal prompted a “heartbroken” and “blindsided” Ariana Madix to swiftly dump Sandoval, 40, her boyfriend of nearly 10 years.
Schwartz’s knowledge of the situation — and the holes in his story, emphasized by a purported timeline that deviated from Sandoval’s — has drawn ire from passionate Madix supporters.
Emanuel, for her part, encouraged Schwartz to “be more sturdy” in making decisions and statements that feel authentic to him — even if they don’t align with the narrative pushed by his embattled pal and business partner.
“I fully encourage him to be more sturdy in what it is that is best for him. I think that he spends too much time people-pleasing and trying to satisfy everybody else and it gets him in a lot of trouble,” she told us.
“I would love for [Schwartz] to just be more study in what it is that he needs to do for [himself], not the other Tom. I think that’s where a lot of his issues come into play.”
Emanuel — who is currently single — asserted that Schwartz — who is also single after finalizing his divorce from ex-wife Katie Maloney in October 2022 — is “genuinely somebody that means well” even if that isn’t always apparent.
“He is just a really good example of when boundaries are needed,” she told us.
“Summer House: Martha’s Vineyard” airs Sunday at 9 p.m. ET on Bravo.
