The Sur Dish

See what Stassi, Jax, Scheana, Katie, Tom, and Kristen thought of the first episode of 'Vanderpump Rules.'

on Jan 7, 20130

Kristen Doute

Bravotv.com: Give us a quick primer, how long have you worked at SUR? How did you end up there?
Kristen Doute: I have worked at Sur for five-and-a-half years. My first agent in LA told me about Sur and introduced me to Guillermo. This was when we had all of 12 employees and no liquor license. Now the place has evolved in to this giant LA hotspot. The more employees there are, the more rules we have. I don't do well with change there!

Bravotv.com: Do you feel the same way as Stassi that Scheana was someone who should not be trusted?
KD: Stassi and I do not share a brain. I've been friends with Scheana for years, through my boyfriend Tom. Scheana has a past, as we all do, but that doesn't negatively effect my opinion of her. You can't judge someone until you've walked a mile in their shoes.

Bravotv.com: Do you feel like Stassi’s treatment of Scheana was fair? Did you feel for Scheana after seeing her chat with Brandi?
KD: Stassi is who Stassi is, and you can't change her opinion of someone. I don't think she gave Scheana a fair chance and I don't condone the way she treated her. Yet, at the end of the day Stassi is my best friend and my loyalty lies with her. You have to pick your battles and sometimes, with her, it's just easier to turn your cheek.

I felt for Brandi after seeing their conversation! It was really intense and not a position that I would want to be in. The whole Eddie ordeal happened so many years ago and it doesn't define who Scheana is. I know Scheana is truly apologetic that her actions were a part of hurting Brandi.

Bravotv.com: Tell us more about your relationship with Tom? Do you ever get any time in the bathroom?
KD: Oh, God. Tom is hilarious. What you see is what you get. We've been dating for more than four years, which is forever in Hollywood. He's my best friend. We share everything -- including hair products. He doesn't leave the house without that damn flat iron. We definitely compete for mirror time but luckily, we have two bathrooms! He should buy stock in Murray's.

Bravotv.com: What would your dream career look like?
KD: Sooner than later I would like to be able to quit Sur and be working as an actor enough to support myself. I would love to be working on multiple projects at once. I feel truly fulfilled when I'm creating a 3D human being out of a character on a piece of paper. I feel that's when I'm in my element.

Can not stand Stassi she is so stuck on herself and she is not all that great. She opens her mouth and out comes jealous and it is always all about me me me. Bravo I know you have to have someone be the victim someone be the mean girl and so on so tell us is this the real Stassi? Is she this self centered in real life. If she is then I know I would never want to be around her and her whining and oh poor me comments, her lies and her causing fights between the others. Bravo can't you put on a show once in a while that has everyone getting along. Really tried of whiners. Stassi so what if it is your birthday the world did not come to a stop. The only time anyone's birthday was of greatness was Jesus birthday. Get a grip you are only one person in a big world and that means your not that important. I walk away when she is on the screen and Bravo puts her on the screen so much I have really stopped watching. Just caught this last one about her birthday and it really is crappy. Thanks for listening....... Oh and Stassi has so much advice yet she treats others like they are her subjects. Can't stand her at all............................................

Why does everyone let Stassi walk all over them? Who talks to people that way? Why doesn't anyone mention how disrespectful and selfish she acts towards her 'friends'?

On the othr hand, about Stassi - I did't like that she as laughing at Kristen when kristen met the girl her boyfriend Tom had slept with. Kristen was obviously feeling sick to her stomach to meet the girl - which I can completely understand. But, Stassi yells across the room "are you the girl that slept with tom Stoval?" And the girl just said "It was a long time ago". There is Stassi laughing about it, but then gets pissed when the girls don't back her on her own boyfried drama. I am not sure I believe that Jax got some girl pregnant? Frank will say anything to get one over on Jax and have Stassi. not liking Frank at all - waaaayyy too shady!!!

Wow! Jax is such a hottie! How tall is he? LOL. All I have to say about last night, is that all the young people watching Jersey Shore on MTV, need to tune into Vanderpumup Rules - on BravoTV.. Enough of Snooki falling down drunk and getting arrested on the beach! This is waaaay more eventful and exciting!! Kinda an upscale version of Jersey Shore, haha. Almost started feeling sorry for Stassi last night, miniscule, but just a bit!

Jax, I have a feeling that Lisa was going to fire you but changed her mind... It would be a big mistake.  A clue everyone tunes in to watch you!!!! I am not just saying that because your incredibly hot either.  It is the way you have about you.  I am so glad that you and Stassi broke up.  Now you can get a real woman (that you deserve) don't sell yourself short because a psycho points out to you that you have some flaws.  You are genuine with yourself a qualiy not very many have certainly not Stassi, you can't depend on someone else for your happiness or blame somone else for your feelings.  It seems she has a severe mental illness and is going untreated.  I hope they fire her and get her off the show.  She brings such a trashy element to the show that is truly unbearable to watch.  Jax, Scheana is really sweet and hot too.  Hmmm you ever think about it?  Stassi needs to go back to wherever she came from Missississippi or wherever it is and let her family take care of her and get her the help she needs.  It is really cruel watching Bravo put her on TV people are making fun of her and it really isn't fair to Stassi I doubt she even recognizes that she has a mental illness.  But Jax stay on this show or the ratings will drop to nothing (which will happen anyway if Stassi continues to be on the show).  I pray you keep her out of your life so you can move on.  The world needs more Jax!!!!!  I say Jax TV...lol.   Thanks Jax, I hope I can continue to watch you on the show.  That includes some of the other people as well so they can use this show as a springboard for success... As soon as Stassi is gone!!!! YAY!!!

I looove, love love Lisa. Also that she has a soft side! But that kind of kindness is wasted on Stassi!! Anyone else would have fired her a long time ago!

Kristin:  Been a waitress for 5 1/2 years?  I think you will be a waitress for the rest of your life.  Don't quit the day job.  You are not a star!

Wow. I can't believe Jax dated Stassi for 2 years. I have a headache after listening to her whine for 1 hour! So tired of her shouting "I don't care!" when someone is trying to have a mature conversation with her. Also need her to stop telling everyone to "grow up" while she's having a temper tantrum that would shame a 2 year-old.

Stassi - I feel so sorry for you. You're so unhappy.  And you're so sure the world is wrong and that everyone needs to know you're right (which you're not).  When I see someone like you who is so judgemental all I can see is how much you hate yourself.  It's evident that you truly do - and frankly I can see why.  Nonetheless, please try to forgive yourself and be gentler with yourself and you just might find that you have some tolerance for the world that you live in.

 

Otherwise I recommend climbing under a rock and staying there - you'll be happier than out in the world.  So will we.  Please don't bring your hate.  Good luck.

I finally watched the first show and I see Stassi is a hot mess. I cannot believe she is a friend of Pandora.  Stassi had some serious issues.  When she said she was the "devil" although I believe she was only kidding, but really she was definitely on point.  Although she is a pretty female, she has an evil spirit which makes her look very extremely ugly.  I hope Lisa can talk to her and help her see her evil ways or if not she needs to fire her azz.

Lisa,  you need to get rid of Stassi.  I don't think she can be a friend to anyone.  She has a lot

of issues and one of them, is she is very insecure.  It is none of her business  about anyones

life that she works with.  Who does she think she is?

I have to say that watching Stassi was pretty bad she is not a nice person at all. She thinks of herself as a princess us not so much. Jax why would you stay with a brat you don't respect or get along with very well? You could do so much better and find someone to actually like. Also the way she treated and talked about Scheana was aweful and uncalled for why would Lisa let something like that go on in her place of business? Very childess to say the least.  The whole restaurant we were at watching said to get rid of her. Lisa she is going to bring your business down..

Was waiting to see more of Lisa, love her. Didnt know was going to watch young celebrity wanna bees. The guys are pretty boy feminine, ugh, not my taste and the theres bully Stassi and a public known home wrecker, Scheana, trying to be a singer. When she was singing that's when I changed channel. Couldn't take it. This show is not about Lisa :(

I honestly can't watch this show. Stassi is such a brat- it makes the show unwatchable. She may be pretty in the outside but she is ugly on the inside. Treating someone like shit at your JOB because you don't like what she does in her personal life is so unprofessional, and Lisa should know better. Tried it..... Won't watch it. She is as bad as Faye Resnick.

When Kristen chimes in saying “everyone who works here is good looking” thought I was going to barf.  She is the most unattractive of all the women. She has nice figure but with all the beautiful women in Hollywood these are the best looking… I think not!!!

I understand that Bravo will want Lisa to keep Stassi because of the drama but serioulsy she is such a bitch I will have to not watch anymore.  She is going to ruin the reputation of Sur and I Love Lisa so I hate to see that happen.  If Stassi were gone I think her business would go much more smoothly

Stassi needs to be fired!  She isn't all that and she sure thinks she is!  I am surprised that Lisa would even put up with her!  She is horrible and really I think I would not go into the restaurant just based on that witch working there!  Lisa get rid of that that one.  She needs to be a nicer person.  She isn't doing your business any justice.  She brings joy to no one!  very sad.  I'm kinda dissappointed in Lisa that she would employee this girl and than reward her for bad behavior!  Rethinking now.... all i can say is WOW!

Stassi just needs to be fired. She doesn't do her job, or help anyone do their job either. She is not a good person. She has been around ALOT, just with the men she works with. Then she has the nerve to say something rude and embarrassing to the young girl who made the mistake of going out with Brandy's hubby, at the time. Brandy took it well and treated the girl with respect. Stassi acts like she never made a mistake in her life. Also there is no way she is a decendant of any kjind of princess, She is a looser. Hopefully they will get rid of her like they did Margo!!!

Stassi, your interview is disengenuous. Sucking up to Lisa will not help you and its terribly transparent as you speak your "never wrong" mind on everything else. I'm sure you'll see how you're being received and iun to Lisa outraged, but it's out of her hands, the editors are in charge and they're just showing what you've said. You're just plain mean. People like that do not make it. Even if you try faking it now. Wow. And the girl that said 'we're all attractive, sorry" Umm, I can't even write it. Enough said.

Look I understand that Lisa feels a little allegiance to the bratty child Stassi but business is business. But Stassi is very attractive on her outside appearance she is only out for Stassi.  Everything else comes second to her.  She is mean spirited, manipulative and quite frankly a true definition of a bully. Lisa, how can you let her act that way in your restaurant.  She isn't that attractive to keep around.  Los Angeles is full of aesthetically beautiful people. Stassi needs to taste her own medicine.  What Scheanna did was wrong but Stassi hasn't graduated high school yet.  Anyonw involved with Stassi should watch out, because the girl is not right mentally.

Kristen: You fit in perfectly with this group, ys I agree you seem to have a good relationship with your boyfriend, and here is a rule, if he has not asked you or married U within 5 years he will never, so as a friend that is good but if U want more, U woman are in control in every relationship so get the ball rolling and see what base he throws to. Hunter

Scheana-U R a woman and as such responsible for your behavior, U R accountable, whether U new or not, maybe in the beginning U did not know for Brandis' husband your x-lover is a sex addict alleged but after a time when U did know, it was your responsibility to have found out and break off the relationship, the rule is if he is cheating with you , that he is going to cheat on you. I do feel that Stassi was out of line, but she is adolescent like in her behavior and is stuck on the premise that what is her is always her and nobody can get inside unless she invites them. Congrats of your boyfriend. Looking forward to seeing how you respond in this immature atmosphere. Hunter

 Jax-my man woman are in control anyway but U need to take a stand and hold your ground, Stassi is a social dominatrix by her behavior, she needs someone to show her she is a bully at the least and a social terror at the most. You definitely do not need an anchor around your neck. Just find someone who is for and not against you.

Lisa-consummate manager, what a job, I would be firing everyone and starting a new, even if I had to shut down, to many prima donnas.

Stassi-Sweetheart, pretty but insubordinate and nasty to her fellow worker, she needs to grow up and learn to get along.

Good grief, what a nasty little child Stassi is. I hate to see her make Lisa look bad.

There's a reason every single boyfriend you've ever had has cheated on you Stassi... it's you! You're clearly the problem. You're exhausting and full of drama. Get your shit together before you even think about starting a life with someone else.

I want to see Scheana steal Jax from Stassi. She deserves it and it would make for great watching

Vanderpump Rules actually can be fun to watch with just two simple adjustments: Getting rid of the arrogant Stassi and Scheana Marie. Once they are gone this show may have a good chance.

Its funny how Stassi thinks she is so high class when you are actually just a waitress and want to get famous through going in a reality show...

Was shocked to hear she is friends with Pandora :S

 @girlstrong I can not stand her and if she is this way in real life that keep me way away from her. Can't stand her attitude. The other girls are prettier and smarter than her by far.

 @pyin That is the stupid part of Stassi. Really stupid she is sickening.

 Right?!? Pandora was so sweet and classy. Guess Stassi didn't get those things at her all girls school. She talks like she thinks she is classy - but cannot pull it off!! Lisa's business partner wants to fire Stassi - but Lisa keeps giving her a pass. I don't Stassi deserves that kind of loyalty from Lisa!

I agree.  Lisa does need to fire Stassi, bad for business and not fair to the other employees she splits her tips with.  I feel people who watch the show and goes to that restaurant and has Stassi for a server will not be tipping.  Therefore, if Stassi does not make any tips she will be piggy banking from the other servers and thats not cool at all.

 @pyin  @Timolyn Lisa's business partner should over ride Lisa and fire Stassi might do her some good to learn she is not the center of everyone's life oh goodness that would be a blow to her ego.

 @FlutterBy I have to wonder if they are still good friends after seeing her behavior and just the glimpses we have caught of Pandora on RHBH. Maybe they were childhood friends that have grown apart.

franci

 @Timolyn As much as Stassi was arguing to keep sharing tips and from the look Lisa gave her when she was going over who brought in the most and the least, I would say Stassi is already being carried by the others.  With her attitude I doubt she could make it on her own.
