Scheana shares her thoughts on the SUR staff meeting and on her big performance.

Scheana Marie

Bravotv.com: What did you think of Lisa having a sit down with Jax? Is that like her to get involved in the staff’s problems?
Scheana Marie: When I saw the sit down between Lisa and Jax I just thought, "Uh oh, he's in trouble! Lisa doesn't get involved when she doesn't have to and especially if it isn't extremely serious. So when Lisa asks you to have a sit down you know she means business! Especially in this situation of disrespecting another restaurant owner's property.

Bravotv.com: What did you think of Jax hooking up with Laura-Leigh so soon, particularly after how upset he seemed when talking to Lisa about Stassi?
SM: At the time of Jax and Laura-Leigh hooking up I wasn't that close with either of them, so for all I knew that's how the SUR staff is -- hopping from one employee on to another. However in this situation, I think Jax was truly hurt by Stassi moving on so quickly to Frank that he was just trying to get back at her in a malicious way -- even when it appeared it was his fault they broke up in the first place.

Bravotv.com: How did you feel prepping for your first big performance? Were you nervous?
SM: Prepping for my first big performance was one of the most nerve wracking experiences of my life! I hadn't done trained dancing in years and picking up choreography is not as easy at 27 as it was at 17! Singing live for the first time in front of a huge group of people just stressed me, because I didn't knowing if I would sound like complete s--- or not.

Bravotv.com: How did it feel going to that party that Stassi wasn't invited to? Did you feel bad for her for being dropped by her friends so quickly?
SM: At the time of being invited to the party I didn't feel bad for Stassi at all. I was just happy to be a part of the group finally. Kristen, Tom, and I had known each other for years but I knew their loyalty was always to Stassi, and it made situations uncomfortable when we were both in the same room.

Bravotv.com: What did you think of Stassi's texts to Laura-Leigh? Were you glad her target wasn't you for a change?
SM: Initially when I heard the texts out loud from Stassi I thought they were pretty harsh, but after thinking about it now it really wasn't. Had a friend of mine done that to me if Shay and I had broken up, that would have been me being nice! When someone hurts you you need to vent and sometimes take things out on that person. And although I was happy not to be the target anymore, I really think Stassi could have given it to Laura-Leigh a lot harder.

Bravotv.com: How did you feel going into the all-staff meeting at SUR? What did you think of everyone's behavior at the meeting?
SM: I had no interest to go to the all staff meeting. I'm never a part of any of the drama so why should I have to sit through this!?! It was quite entertaining, I'll say though. I felt like I was watching a ping pong tournament with the fighting going back and forth and me stuck smack in the middle. I thought Laura-Leigh was going to explode like a human bomb. She absolutely lost it.

Bravotv.com: How was it returning to dancing and getting prepped for the performance?
SM: Returning to dancing and prepping for the show was extremely stressful. There was so much that went into it it would have been impossible to show everything. We had four rehearsals with the choreographer, vocal harmonizing sessions, met with a stylist, did a sound check (in which they told me I wouldn't have cordless mice to use), and then had to get ready on my own while trying not to forget anything in the process. Once I got on stage it all came back to me. All the performance training I had as a child and through college just came right back in and I took over the stage -- splits, booty poppin', and all.

Bravotv.com: How did you feel after your performance? Did it go as you wanted? Do you have more plans to perform anytime soon?
SM: After the performance I felt amaaaaaaaaazing!!!! It went better than I ever could have expected and then some. My girls, Ariana and Jackie, killed it behind me and made me feel so comfortable on stage. It was so much fun to share this experience with two of my best friends and I could not have done it with out them. As far as performing again anytime soon, well I guess I'll just wait and see if anyone offers it to me. I'd love to travel around the country to clubs and hear my song playing and get on the mic.

Bravotv.com: Why did you decide to comfort Stassi at the show?
SM:I decided to comfort Stassi because she needed a friend at the time. She got in an argument with the girls earlier and although I didn't know what it was about, to see someone so sad broke my heart. I don't care if she was mean to me and judged me because that was so long ago and life is too short to hold grudges and have hate. I love and adore Stassi. I think she's an amazing person and was going through a very hard time. Everyone does things they regret. She's apologized to me and that was enough. I'm so happy to now have a new friend and it never hurts to have a "mean girl" in your corner.

Katie: This Is Just Plain Creepy

Katie thinks Tom Sandoval was put in a no-win situation.

Wow! I mean just WOW! I was biting my nails, laughing, and cringing through this episode.
Let me start by saying that following my conversation with Stassi, I had very mixed emotions. I felt very confident in my decisions and felt that I wasn't in the wrong and had to firmly stand my ground. I couldn't let Stassi make me feel guilty about something that I felt so strongly about. This was my life, and I was making necessary changes and choices to regain happiness. I was heartbroken over how our conversation went and the results. I didn't want our friendship to be over. How could she just throw it away? Schwartz was right in his blog when he said Stassi dehumanized me. She abandoned everything she knew about me and our friendship and was purely looking at me as a "link." That hurt. I don't throw friendships away, so I was going to leave the door open and if Stassi could accept me and the conditions, then I would happily continue our friendship. If not, well I did everything I could.
Now this Annemarie chick...I'm not sure what exactly she is doing here. Why was it so important for her to come here and confront Tom and Ariana with her "story"? I do not for a minute believe her story, aside from the fact that she did meet and hang out with the boys in Miami. I don't feel like delving into the semantics of it all, but it virtually doesn't add up. Watching Kristen wither while she spoke and chug wine as if Tom cheated on her with this girl was comical really. I'm still trying to figure out what Kristen feels she has to gain by orchestrating this whole thing, besides some karmic punishment. Why did she want to break Tom and Ariana up so bad? Does she realize that even if this were true that the fate of Tom and Ariana's relationship is THEIRS to decide? And if they were to break up, does she think that this would win Tom over? I'm seriously at a loss here. We had just come off an amazing trip and everyone was in a great place and this week was leading up to Scheana and Shay's wedding and Kristen decides to do this NOW?!

It sounds like Annemarie was reading lines as she spoke. No conviction in her voice. I understand why Tom ran away when he saw her. First of all, he was blindsided by this girl he met once in Miami who decided to fabricate a story. Now this is just plain creepy. She has taken it to new levels by showing up at his work like a crazed stalker. I don't blame him for getting out of there. He doesn't owe her anything and doesn't need to give her the time of day. On the other hand, to those who want to believe he cheated, the fact he ran away incriminates him further in their eyes. This is why I said it's not a good look to run away, because he didn't cheat and giving anyone the satisfaction of believing he did just makes the matter worse. It's tough because when people are accusing you of cheating and you really didn't, you want to just ignore it and not let it get to you, because if you do, then you will look guilty. But on the other hand, when you are being accused of something you didn't do it's really frustrating and you want to fight to prove your innocence, which can also make you look guilty. It's a double-edge sword. It's nearly impossible to handle and correct this situation when people are shoving it in your face.


I really felt for Scheana during her fight with Kristen. Scheana wasn't trying to make it about her, but Kristen put her in an impossible situation. Scheana has been an advocate for Kristen and stood by her and for Kristen to do something so selfish and cause Scheana to have to deal with this drama right before her wedding is completely unfair. I couldn't believe my eyes the way Kristen spoke to her and then to Diana, her boss. This is exactly the kind of behavior that management and Ken and Lisa DO NOT tolerate.


Thank god Tom and Ariana came back to work and apologized to Lisa. I loved the way they handled the second attempt by Annemarie. It further proves that the story this girl is spewing is complete garbage, and they aren't going to let her try and shake them. This girl has no purpose aside from wanting attention. I don't know anyone that would travel cross country to go and confront someone who they claim to have had a horrible one-night stand with. So I'm sorry Annemarie, but you've just wasted your time.
