Don't Judge Stassi Too Quickly

Lisa asks that you cut Stassi -- but defends Scheana once again.

Read Lisa's expanded blog after the jump

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.

Love Lisa.

Ariana: Tom and I Have Reached Our Boiling Points

Ariana is more convinced than ever that the Miami affair didn't happen.

Right off the bat, I want to get something out of the way: I’m not the smartest person I've ever met in my life (I’ve also never technically "met" myself, so that choice of words is hilarious.). I didn't mean that seriously; I let my frustrations get to me, and I lashed out. There are much better and more clear ways to express my point of view without sounding like a total ---hole. Smooth move, Ferguson.


That being said, when you live your life amid second and third-hand rumors and lies, it's hard to have an objective point of view. Watching conversations that I wasn't present for gives me a much clearer perspective…it’s an out-of-body experience.


Let's be clear: Jax didn't "crack," "reveal," or "admit" anything. He never made a choice between being loyal and being honest, because he has never been either of those things (and I doubt even knows the definition of those words). I was so frustrated that people were interested in the “story” and the gossip and were so desperate for it to be true that they weren't paying attention to the fact that NONE of it made any sense!


Every single time that someone attempts to perpetuate this story about Tom, their story changes, without fail. Each person involved has their own reasons for doing so. While neither Tom nor I have anything to actually worry about, both of us reached our boiling points due to the relentlessness with which this has been brought up. We’ve always told the truth, but because it’s not interesting, people jumped at the chance to buy into the bullsh--. I mean, there are people who still believe that our relationship started as an affair. I don’t have to go on a ridiculous crusade to "clear my name" and then act as though I've been a martyr to truth. But if that’s what helps someone sleep better at night? Hopefully a good night's rest will help them be a better human.


I've been told that I'm pretending to be someone I'm not, that I'm fake, because I'm not interested in petty drama, or because Tom and I don't feel the need to hide our happiness. I've been told I'm shady and mean, because I'm not nice 100% of the time, but when I am, I get called a doormat. Guess what? I’m a three-dimensional human being, like the rest of the world. I’ve got issues: I’m not forthright with my feelings, I have crippling anxiety, cellulite, and my hair always refuses to part where I want. But while I may not be nice 25/8, I try not to be rude to anyone who doesn't deserve it.


2014 was the best year of my life in so many ways, exacerbated by the fact that my 2013 was full of tragedy, struggle, and pain. Tom has always been a good friend to me, and I feel so incredibly grateful for the life we have together. I am so proud of him and proud to be his partner and teammate. Tom always has my back, and I will always have his.
The bottom line is that some people will love you, some people will hate you, but most people don't care either way. I'm doing the very best I can, and that's all I can do. Gossip, rumors, and a flair for the dramatic rank very low on my list of priorities. I'm so thankful for the people who have always been there for me. It's such a great feeling to know that there are wonderful and kind people in this world. I'm truly lucky to know so many.


True love is real. Onward and upward. Live long and prosper. In case I don't see you: good afternoon, good evening, and good night.
