Read Lisa's expanded blog after the jump.

And here we are ...round five! Hope you all had a good holiday!

When Nathalie said she wanted to have a surprise for Guillermo. I was immediately excited at the prospect. This is a man that hates celebrating his birthday and always refuses to celebrate. Well not so this year. . .I have a wonderful relationship with Guillermo and the four of us have shared some special moments in the creation of this restaurant.

He epitomizes the American dream. He came here as a dishwasher, then a busser, then a waiter, then a manager. Then I came in for lunch and overnight we shook hands we became partners. The rest is history.

So to see Nathalie be able to buy him a Mercedes was a moment I relished. The cake and the party was all a success, and he surprisingly adored the attention -- and we will probably have to do it now every year!

Jax was struggling with the news that he had discovered a lump. He has such a history with being economical with the truth, so that it is a classic example of the boy who cried wolf. But I wish Stassi had been more compassionate towards him, regardless of their situation. I was also shocked at all the junk they put in their body. It has to have some effect. I really felt that Jax was hoping Stassi would come over and not chastise him, but give him a sympathy shag. I do believe he was genuinely concerned but also wondered if he thought the victim card might work in his favor.

Whoever gets ready for a passport shoot? I have never seen anything as ridiculous, but they never fail to amuse me.

Who knows if anything has ever gone down between Tom and Ariana? I have seen them work together on countless occasions without incident. I hoped that it would be the same at SUR. Apparently not so. . .This is a situation that gathers momentum and takes many turns so keep watching.

Love to you all till next week. . .
Lisa.

Tom: What a Train Wreck

Tom thinks this was all typical Kristen behavior.

Let's keep it positive. Positive, OK? I just don't think I can do it after this episode. Before we dive in, let me just say I don't write this from atop a high horse. I know I have plenty of my own issues and shortcomings. Anyways, Kristen's attempt at being humorous while she's knee deep in crazy with that girl is painful to watch. She's like "We're gonna need a whole bottle," and says it as if she doesn't want to cope with the situation at hand that SHE set up. It's like a split personality syndrome.

I think Tom did the right thing in removing himself from the situation at SUR, his place of employment. You don't want to cause a scene in one of Lisa's restaurants. Take me, for example. It took so much courage for me to walk away in the middle of my bar shift at Pump and leave my comrades hanging (sarcasm--just in case it doesn't read). So this girl making these bs claims shows up out of the blue?I I would have run for the hills. You never know what people are capable of and honestly I wouldn't have waited around to see her intentions. After the failed confrontation, Scheana comes out and puts Kristen in her place. Kristen belligerently gets defensive and keeps saying, "Why are you making this my fault?" to Scheana. Ahhhhh! Maybe because you instigated this whole situation and facilitated that girl's confrontation.

 

Kristen went to great lengths to get in touch with this girl. She was so excited about the prospect of trying to make Tom look bad, she was practically frothing at the mouth. With her sidekick sitting nearbye. Who would want to be a part of that scenario? You guys get a glimpse of the type of crap I had to live with for three years: Kristin going off the rails and not giving a sh-- about anyone she is affecting around her. The fact that she's in a public place and there are guests around, but she still doesn't give a shite. This is my biggest beef with Kristen. When she has a problem, nothing else in the world matters, and she has ZERO consideration for those around her. You saw the way she made that scene in a public place, completely disrespecting Diana without any remorse. So dismissive of her manager while she smokes cigarettes and pounds wine. Her ability to disregard authority when she's upset is unreal. I mean what a train wreck. It's like a child who throws tantrums in a store when they don't get something they want. I have a complex with people who have meltdowns and lose consideration for those around them. By all means, have a meltdown or two, but be considerate of your neighbors. She will have hissy fits with reckless abandon, then instead of taking responsibility, she'll drop a cheesy quote like, "If you can't handle me at my worst, you don't deserve me at my best." When I'm pissed at her sometimes she'll ask me, "What have I ever done to you?" Um, you kept me up all night, countless nights for years. I don't hold a grudge, of course, but when I see her behave this way, those feelings of resentment resurface quickly. It is true that I have a very short fuse with Kristen and maybe sometimes it's too harsh, but not in regards to this issue. She needs lessons in self awareness (I know, I know, I need lessons in not being a pussy). I had a goddamn flashback watching that episode.

When she has a problem, nothing else in the world matters, and she has ZERO consideration for those around her.

Now this Miami girl seems strange, and I'm 90% sure she had a lobotomy at some point. Maybe she's a droid? Also, she has so much Botox, she can barely emote. I wouldn't talk shit about her personally, but she slandered my friend in the most trashy way. Trying to belittle my friend's Chipotle-sized penis. She's gotta be asking herself, what the hell was I thinking? You really have to wonder how someone can have such poor decision-making skills. What a waste of time and energy. All she did was succeed in making herself look like a stage four cling-on.

Even if these accusations were true, which they are NOT, I don't understand her motives. We all had a good time together in Miami--drinks and laughs--but it was always innocent good fun. Not sure why she would make up these false claims then fly to L.A. to "confront" him.  Some sort of ulterior motives at hand here. People's logic is "Well, she wouldn't fly all the way across the country if it wasn't true." What if it was true? Would that justify flying all try way across the country? What does she get out of it? What was her end goal or ideal outcome? Doesn't she have a job, hobbies, things that keep her busy? I think the girl wanted to be on TV. There were crucial details to this story that didn't make it into the episode, because they can only fit so much into each episode.  She may be a perfect candidate for a "Bye Felicia." I feel deeply for my good friend Sandoval. He was ambushed, and I think given the circumstances, he handled himself pretty damn well. Also, Ariana handled herself like a champ, too, and I was happy to see her put that girl in her place. She totally burned her, and that chick had no comeback. Nice comeback.
