Jax reflects on finally feeling remorse for his betrayal, his fight with Tom, and his never-ending love for Stassi

To be honest, I wasn't nervous going to Scheana's engagement party. Everything was OK. But with Tom, it escalated. I gave Tom ample opportunity to approach me. We went out in the parking lot, I talked to him at the beach -- I obviously told him what happened. When he hit me, I didn’t know that was coming. To be honest, I was shocked. He waited until I was around all these girls. He could have hit Scheana -- or anybody else. It wasn’t really appropriate. I get it, he was mad, I would have hit me, too. That’s not what I was mad about. I was mad about how he approached the situation. There's girls around, you know? We were out in the parking lot, we’re men, we cold have handled it like men, instead of in front of girls, in Lisa’s restaurant. We didn’t need to do that here.

I didn't think Kristen would finally admit everything. I know I'm called a liar, but Kristen lies. She's been crying wolf for so long saying, "I'm done with this relationship, I'm done, I'm done." Here's your way out -- be honest. All she had to do was say it. At first she said it only happened once. I mean, if it happened once or 60 times it doesn't matter, it happened. 

I think they got into one of those situations where you've invested in a relationship for so long -- you share bills, you share things -- it was probably easier to stay together. It's a lot of work to break up. I know that’s not an excuse, and that’s not one I would use. I could never live in their lifestyle. They were never happy in their whole five years together. I've known them their whole relationship. I've known them for 10 years, both of them. They were miserable the whole time. They can tell you till they are blue in the face they were happy; they weren't. I don't understand how you can be in a relationship when you're just constantly fighting and miserable.

It's terrible because I show no remorse about it at all, but it didn’t really hit me until now. I watched the show, and I really looked at it and thought, "Wow, that is a sh--ty thing that I did." I was a really bad friend. There’s no excuse for what I did. 

I was surprised that Lisa was so mad at me. Lisa seems so strong, and it doesn’t seem like anything bothers her. But things do. She used to come to me and be like "How do you not get affected?" So I was thinking, "Whoa, am I that cold-hearted?" I don’t know, it just didn’t affect me right away. It took a while. Now I look back on it and think that was a sh--ty thing for me to do. Am I remorseful? Yes, of course. I’m a human being. It took a while for it to affect me. I was very selfish.

You have to remember, too, I was so wrapped up in Stassi then. I would do whatever it took to get back with her. I didn’t care who I hurt or what I did. Whatever made me feel good at the time, I was going to do.  Even if it was sleep with my friend’s girlfriend. Stassi was going back with Frank that week, Kristen and Tom were fighting. Tom called me up asking if I could come and take Kristen. We were both in a bad place. Kristen was at rock bottom, I was at rock bottom. We just cared about ourselves. It wasn't a passionate thing, it wasn’t like "Oh my God, I love you."  There was no kissing involved. It was strictly what it was, it was a hook-up. We were both just really upset with our lives. And that's what it was. Nothing more.

Do I regret it? Absolutely, I wish it would have never happened. I'm not saying this is a good thing, but Tom's a lot happier now. He seems happy. I'm not saying I'm glad that I did this because now look what happened, but he's a different person. It's like, wow, who is this guy? And that’s good. I’m glad.

At that point I had kind of given up on getting back together with Stassi. I will always love Stassi, but we’re obviously just not meant to be together. We’re getting to the point where we can actually talk again and be civil. If I see her in a room we can talk and be pleasant. Where everything stands right now, I just want to stay out of everyone's business. And now, I'm going to play things a little differently. I'm always be around and I'll always add my tidbit in, but I'm not gonna do some of the sh--ty things that I did. I'm going to actually think about what I do before I do it.

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.
