Bravotv.com: Why did you think that Jax and Stassi would get back together?
Kristen Doute: Over the past couple of years I've seen Stassi and Jax "break up" a million times. Their relationship has been a broken record and they both live in absolutes, so when they broke up this time I just felt like, "OK, I'll believe it when I see it."
Bravotv.com: And why did you want them to?
KD: As unhealthy as their actions had become, they really are perfect for each other. It's also heartbreaking to have our group torn apart. I know that they both love each other and I felt like they both just checked out. Relationships are not effortless.
Bravotv.com: Why did it upset you so much running into Casey?
KD: It was just really unexpected to have Casey at the photo shoot. When I first realized who she was, it didn't even occur to me that she and Tom had hooked up before. I just thought, "What a small world!" She and her sister were living with Tom when he and I met. Earlier that day she and I were conversing about my apartment etc. so when it later came up that she was the one who slept with him it just grossed me out. I'm well aware that Tom and I both have pasts but honestly -- who wants to picture their boyfriend having sex with someone else?
Bravotv.com: Do you think Stassi made the situation worse?
KD: Stass loves to rattle the cage. She wasn't trying to upset me but she definitely wanted to stir the pot and keep it going for her own humor. She would have reacted the same way as I did and wanted to feel justified that it would have bothered her if she were in my position.
