Stassi Schroeder

Bravotv.com: How were you feeling about Jax post-his break-up with Laura-Leigh and pre-confession? Why were you continuing to see Frank at that time?
Stassi Schroeder: It was actually a very confusing time for me. I didn't know whether to trust Jax or not, but was willing to open myself up to him as a friend. He claimed he loved me and said all those wonderful things to me, but I just always sensed he wasn't being 100 percent honest. I was very guarded with him. I hung out with Frank a few times after because our break up had come out of nowhere and it didn't feel like we truly hashed things out and said our peace. We needed to see each other a few more times to really talk and figure things out.

Bravotv.com: What did you think seeing Jax in therapy? Did it change how you felt about him at all?
SS: Not really, because he lied right to the therapist's face. He claims all the time how he wants to change and is good and telling people what they want to hear, which is exactly what I saw when I watched that scene. I can appreciate him making the effort to go to a therapist, but if you aren't even going to be honest there, then what's the point?

Bravotv.com: What did you think of Jax's confession?
SS: It was one of the most heartbreaking moments of my life. I spent the whole summer being the only one to believe he cheated, and to finally hear him admit it was just insane. I was going through so many different emotions, I was angry, sad, anxious, yet at the same time I had a feeling of vindication. No one believed me this whole season, my friends chose to believe Jax. I had the loneliest summer of my life and finally I was getting some justification.

Bravotv.com: What did you think watching this season? Were you surprised seeing things from the other side?
SS: What surprised me the most was watching Katie and Kristen. They fully believed Jax was telling the truth, and I didn't realize how hurt they felt about me. The whole summer, I had just been feeling like the abandoned one, then watching the whole season, I see how they felt abandoned in a way as well. I obviously don't like some of the things they've said about me but we are all guilty of hurting each other to a certain extent. No one is innocent. I just feel fortunate that we were all able to move past this and become a family again.
