Katie is appalled by Kristen's betrayal and lies and thinks Tom is delusional for sticking by his girlfriend's side.

Preparing for any photo shoot is a daunting experience. I hate dieting so I have to up the work out. I had discovered Shape House LA and thought it was an amazing way to help shed some water weight. I knew Stassi would love it because she just needed to lay there and watch TV. She is really more of an indoor low endurance kind of girl.

For this shoot I really needed to add in some meditation in order to deal with all the drama floating around. It wasn't as bad as I had anticipated. I think it was most awkward for Tom, but he did a good job of holding it together.

They way I see it is, I am only getting older and one day my looks will fade and my body will be unrecognizable from today, so why not do a risqué little shoot. I was with my closest friends and with world renowned photographers. It seemed a better time than ever! I knew if Lisa saw she would be upset, and of course she had to walk in right in the midst of it! Luckily, she didn’t hold it against us.

Lisa and Stassi telling Tom to face the truth was necessary. I think they both approached it in very supportive manner. Tom was caught up in his own doubts and in the semantics of the truth, trying to rule out any possibility that the rumor could be true. But the proof was in the pudding. The unearthing of this revelation was earth-shattering for everyone, especially Tom, and I suppose he needed to take his time, but he also needed to face the harsh truth.

At this point, I had accepted the fact that Tom and Kristen were never going to break up and they were just going to continue torturing each other for eternity. If Tom was going to not only believe Kristen but also have her back, then they are so far from reality that no one could help them.

Moving onto the engagement party, I admire Scheana's confidence to get up in front of a group and perform her own music. It was a very fun and energetic performance from her! I think it was the only fun part of the evening.

I have so many emotions and not so many words regarding Kristen and her betrayal and lies. She has no shame. It’s not normal for someone to be capable of such disgusting acts and have no shame. She treats it like a tragedy, but has no accountability. Once we discovered the truth, it sickened me to recall the behavior and lies Kristen displayed. It’s extremely disturbing to learn that someone you consider a sister is capable of hurting the people she cares about most, swears that she didn't on her niece and nephew’s grave and then demands apologies for even thinking she would do such things. I was completely appalled by her every word and move.

My jaw hit the floor when Stassi told me that Kristen had finally admitted to sleeping with Jax. I thought she would just deny it till her tits fell off. I was shocked, but let’s face it, she had nothing left to lose besides Tom and he clearly wasn’t going anywhere. Kristen’s confession was soaked in self-pity tears and completely lacked true shame for the mess she had made. Tom staying by Kristen’s side after the truth came out was delusional!! I have no idea why he wouldn’t break up with her and continued to defend her because, unlike these two, I think like a normal person.

Jax and Kristen should maybe consider a future together. Their behavior is just creepy. Jax was void of any human emotion. I have never in my life seen someone react that way. I really felt sorry for Tom, he was severely struggling and his oldest friend couldn’t even be decent enough to apologize.

I had a feeling that the night would eventually get physical, especially with the way Jax was acting. It’s really out of character for Tom, but he had given Jax so much opportunity to explain himself. I think that would drive anyone mad.

Katie: Stassi Overstepped Boundaries

Katie discusses why she didn't give Tom and ultimatum and why Stassi's advice was out-of-line.

The days following Tom's admission of past infidelity were taxing both mentally and emotionally. Tom and I spent hours pouring our hearts out, crying, and taking a hard look at the current state and the future of our relationship. While I cherish and value the opinions of my friends, I was not interested in their opinions of how I should handle this situation. For weeks, everyone was weighing in on Tom and I's relationship to a point that felt it was invasive and frustrating. Tom and I are good match. We are each other's best friends. We don't have a perfect relationship. We understand there are areas where we really need to work on, but we decided to make that a priority. I wanted to go over the recent events and revelations in solidarity. I wanted to focus soley on what my heart felt. I didn't want my thoughts and feelings to be colored by anyone else.

 

 

 

While I understood that Stassi did have good intentions, she began to over step certain boundaries. I didn't need Stassi to fight my battle, but rather to just support my decision and be there for me. Of course I didn't want Tom to continue having a close relationship with Jax. I was fed up with Jax's lies and meddling. I didn't understand why Tom so passionately defended his friendship with Jax, especially when I felt he should have been passionately defending OUR relationship. I began to understand that I was going to have to just compromise with Tom -- and I confidently I could do that with out compromising my feelings and integrity. I wasn't going to let Jax be the reason that Tom and I end our relationship. Sometimes ultimatums are necessary, but this wasn't one of those times. I didn't want to be the ultimatum girlfriend, nobody wants to date or be that girl. Tom assured me that he would take necessary measures to ensure that his friendship with Jax wouldn't interfere with our relationship and that no matter what that I was a priority to him. I felt comfortable with our compromise, and I don't think that makes me weak. Relationships, and life for that matter, are not black and white. They are full of compromise and benefits of the doubt. Stassi was maybe just giving me tough love, but to call me weak during such a critical time for me was hurtful. Stassi hasn't always made the best decisions in terms of relationships. She's made decisions I wouldn't personally make, but I allow her to make her own decisions and do my best to support her. I would have liked to have had that in return. Stassi has removed herself from this group of people and no longer worked at SUR, so it's very easy for her to tell Tom to cut it off with Jax and tell me to disassociate from anything having to do with these people. That isn't really want I want, nor isn't it realistic. I still work at SUR and Tom and I both are friends with people in this group. It's nearly impossible to avoid certain people, and it makes life easier to try and co exist.
