This week we touchdown in to the center of my crazy universe at Sur. I am a spokesperson for GLAAD and have had a few gay clubs and bars in London. The gay pride parade was imminent and I knew we had to support the gay community and also let our presence be known on that day -- persuading Guillermo was just a minor hurdle. So mission accomplished. He had acquiesced and we were full steam ahead.
I have to admit when I watch this show I also feel that the staff seem unruly. But Sur has always been a bit of a playground, with many of the components bringing their complicated scenarios to the workplace. I chastise them, but I understand.
That said, all was in order. The kids gave up their time to dress the float. The pink army was prepared and all was set. The fact that just a little lotion placed on the wrong shoulders should have such an impact on the day is a perfect demonstration of the volatility that is so prevalent amongst this group. I have to admit when seeing Stassi referring to Scheana as a whore, it really bothers me. Scheana had made a mistake, paid dearly for it, and should not be judged by Stassi.
The relationship between Stassi and Jax has always been riddled with insecurities, but this was the final straw that triggered the downfall of this precarious partnership.
Peter had his birthday in our friend's bar. Tthe one thing that is important to be aware of is that these guys for the most part really are extremely close and have worked at Sur for years. They not only work but socialize together a huge amount of their time. Anyway I digress. So Peter's party. . .now for some unknown reason Jax felt it necessary to guzzle seven shots. I am clueless how one could even function after that. I, when watching this footage, sympathize with Stassi and understand her frustration. She was now negotiating her future with somebody, who at this point, would probably have difficulty in remembering his name.
Stassi has taken a lot of heat for her behavior last week, but I ask you to not judge too quickly. . .things change so rapidly at Sur. I sometimes find it difficult to follow. They are an interesting blend of characters that seem to relish the perpetual craziness that follows them. Kristen, I am constantly remonstrating for inserting herself where she doesn't belong and you will see perfect examples of that as we proceed. I have expressed to you previously that I do not support many of their actions, but I am assured that if many employers witness the high jinx of their employees, many wouldn't have a job on Monday morning!
So there we have it. Until next week.
