Kristen on her Burlesque Blowup

Kristen discusses confronting Dani at the SURlesque bash, the Tom and Ariana rumors, and her glam mug shot.  

Stassi did not come over to "style" me. She came over so that we could get ready together for our passport photos. She gave herself a little too much credit. I was pretty stoked to finally get my passport. I felt so sheltered! I have been to Canada a million times, but only the birth certificate was required way back when. I knew that as soon as I got it, I would start traveling and Cabo would be the perfect destination to receive my first stamp.

Insert foot in mouth. . .I was not bragging about my mugshot, but I had to make light of the situation. I got a DUI years ago, but was not "booked." I had to go back months later to get fingerprinted and have my photo taken, so damn right I was going to walk in done up. Why not?

I was definitely upset with Stassi for attacking my relationship with Tom at lunch that day, but it wasn't an end all argument. I appreciate that she was just trying to look out for me, but I was really trying to live in the present moment with where Tom and I currently were. It was like finally he and I were back on track and happy -- I didn't want to let the rumor mill at SUR ruin that. I felt that if I wasn't concerned, my friends should just be happy for me.
Danielle had no place to even voice an opinion about my relationship with Tom and/or his "banter" with Ariana. She doesn't know any of us well enough and it was purely an uneducated observation. Dani and I were not friends, so it really pissed me off to have her spreading these rumors like the damn plague. Not only did I have my friends knocking my relationship with Tom, now I had to deal with a random co-worker trying to put a wedge between us. I wanted to and was ready to turn over a new leaf both at work and with the love of my life. It was also crucial that I build a positive rapport with Lisa and didn't want anything to mess that up.

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.
