Oh how do we decipher this complicated,convoluted situation? I have had so many tweets from you telling me to fire Stassi and advising me that she is no good for my business.

You have to trust me on this one. What you are witnessing is not present on the floor of the restaurant. I have had 26 of them and they are all vastly different. SUR is unique in the fact that it is avant-garde (so the staff follow suit).

Now seeing their behavior captured on film I was angry. I felt compelled to chastise them, but then upon reflection I wondered what right do I have to criticize how they behave in their personal lives? One thing I knew for sure,is that all of them stooping to the level that I witnessed in another restaurant, well that was something that particularly irked me.

Now the rest of it? Skinny dipping and their general shenanigans -- well it's possibly something I am sure most of us when we were twenty something have experienced, at some time or another.

If had known that Jax was following them I would have obviously have tried to stop him in his tracks,inappropriate to say the least. But when you are young, headstrong, and jealous, things sometimes get worse before they get better. He was furiously motivated by the gall of Frank stepping into his shoes after he so recently confided in him. I wondered if Jax was perceptive in calling Frank just a pawn in Stassi's game, but I also understood Stassi's frustration at both of her closest friends siding with the man she had spent the last two years with, invested in, and loved when now she felt wronged and brutally let down.

You will see as this story unfolds that maybe allegiances will change. Maybe what you are viewing right now is not an accurate picture of someone's actions, their protestations of innocence. . . Well we shall see won't we? Anyway until next week. Don't judge them too harshly, remember as I stressed before -- this might not have been their finest hour. So from here it has to be onwards and upwards!

If ever you are in West Hollywood drop by and witness the vibrant, eclectic restaurant and bar that SUR is, many of the staff you will know, you will see how it would be an unrealistic expectation for them all to work and interact without a modicum of complication. One of the reasons that makes SUR unique is also what makes it so difficult to manage.

Until next week...
Love always, Lisa.

Scheana: It's Sad How Few Friends Stassi Has

Scheana discusses the very, very slow day at SUR and what she thinks of Stassi's controlling ways.

Gay pride is one of my favorite days in West Hollywood out of the entire year. I love supporting the gay community and being part of the craziness. This year at SUR however, there was no fun and no crazy. I've never worked a day so slow since I've been at SUR. Even a Tuesday night when it's raining is busier than that day was.


The one thing that was good about it not being so crazy was I got to know Vail a lot better. She and I met many, many years ago and have several mutual friends -- however I hadn't seen her in so long! I've always really liked her. She's such a doll and absolutely gorgeous.

 

When I saw her sitting down with Stassi I figured I'd come and make sure Stassi wasn't trying to control the new girl. Stassi doesn't work at SUR anymore, yet she's always there, and by herself might I add. It's sad how few friends she has left and pathetic that she actually admits to bossing them around. I just don't understand how these girls could be friends with someone so controlling and who only cares about herself. I guess it's because they don't have a mind of their own.

 

I'm SO proud of Katie for finally standing up to her. Look, I get that she was trying to be a good friend to Katie and defend her, but the way she talks down to her is just sad. Katie is an amazing girl and she doesn't deserve to be treated like that. Stassi calls her weak and a doormat. I mean what kind of friend says those things about their best friend who's going through a hard time? I guess I will never understand the science of Stassi, and for that I'm thankful she's no longer a part of my life.
