Lisa Reacts to the Ariana Rumors

Lisa vlogs about Stassi's double standards, the cheating rumors, and Kristen sweeping trouble under the rug.

Read Lisa's expanded blog after the jump.

Hello to you all. When I view these episodes it takes me back to how I have changed over the years. To how things that were so troubling when I was younger become irrelevant now. To thrive on situations that are perpetuated by insecurities is really what most of them are guilty of.

I have to laugh at Stassi with her ridiculous comments about Jax modeling. He wasn't modeling when he cheated on her. If a man is going to cheat he will find a way. Stassi seems to relish in punishing Jax in every way possible way, but he keeps coming back for more!

Kristen was reinstated at work, but with a warning. She never fails to rub me the wrong way. It must be a distinct clash of personalites. I am so incredibly lenient with some of these kids. It is because nearly all of them have worked for me at least three years. I make allowances.

We had finished the bar in the garden. . .Finally and I was eager to put somebody in there that I could trust, somebody that I had a track record with, somebody who was pretty exemplary. . . Welcome Ariana. She has always been excellent, and I knew she was eager to pick up extra shifts. I categorically asked Kristen if she had a problem with her. She told me absolutely not -- so I was surprised to see Kristen's immediate disdain for her. She knows Tom and her are friendly, as they worked together pretty much three days a week for the past three years. You will see how this dynamic becomes slightly more complicated.

Stassi as usual goes into overdrive, confronting every situation that often has nothing to do with her. She is critical, but protective, and always loves to vocalise her opinion. I have to say I am constantly astounded at how uninhibited they are -- conversations about their sex lives, things I would think twice about sharing with my closest friends, let alone the world!

The relationship is so dysfunctional between Kristen and Tom. It is hard to understand what keeps them together. You will see the journey they take, which I have to say is a bumpy one. Anyway this season is fast and furious that's for sure. . .until next week.

Love Lisa.

Ariana: Tom and I Have Reached Our Boiling Points

Ariana is more convinced than ever that the Miami affair didn't happen.

Right off the bat, I want to get something out of the way: I’m not the smartest person I've ever met in my life (I’ve also never technically "met" myself, so that choice of words is hilarious.). I didn't mean that seriously; I let my frustrations get to me, and I lashed out. There are much better and more clear ways to express my point of view without sounding like a total ---hole. Smooth move, Ferguson.


That being said, when you live your life amid second and third-hand rumors and lies, it's hard to have an objective point of view. Watching conversations that I wasn't present for gives me a much clearer perspective…it’s an out-of-body experience.


Let's be clear: Jax didn't "crack," "reveal," or "admit" anything. He never made a choice between being loyal and being honest, because he has never been either of those things (and I doubt even knows the definition of those words). I was so frustrated that people were interested in the “story” and the gossip and were so desperate for it to be true that they weren't paying attention to the fact that NONE of it made any sense!


Every single time that someone attempts to perpetuate this story about Tom, their story changes, without fail. Each person involved has their own reasons for doing so. While neither Tom nor I have anything to actually worry about, both of us reached our boiling points due to the relentlessness with which this has been brought up. We’ve always told the truth, but because it’s not interesting, people jumped at the chance to buy into the bullsh--. I mean, there are people who still believe that our relationship started as an affair. I don’t have to go on a ridiculous crusade to "clear my name" and then act as though I've been a martyr to truth. But if that’s what helps someone sleep better at night? Hopefully a good night's rest will help them be a better human.


I've been told that I'm pretending to be someone I'm not, that I'm fake, because I'm not interested in petty drama, or because Tom and I don't feel the need to hide our happiness. I've been told I'm shady and mean, because I'm not nice 100% of the time, but when I am, I get called a doormat. Guess what? I’m a three-dimensional human being, like the rest of the world. I’ve got issues: I’m not forthright with my feelings, I have crippling anxiety, cellulite, and my hair always refuses to part where I want. But while I may not be nice 25/8, I try not to be rude to anyone who doesn't deserve it.


2014 was the best year of my life in so many ways, exacerbated by the fact that my 2013 was full of tragedy, struggle, and pain. Tom has always been a good friend to me, and I feel so incredibly grateful for the life we have together. I am so proud of him and proud to be his partner and teammate. Tom always has my back, and I will always have his.
The bottom line is that some people will love you, some people will hate you, but most people don't care either way. I'm doing the very best I can, and that's all I can do. Gossip, rumors, and a flair for the dramatic rank very low on my list of priorities. I'm so thankful for the people who have always been there for me. It's such a great feeling to know that there are wonderful and kind people in this world. I'm truly lucky to know so many.


True love is real. Onward and upward. Live long and prosper. In case I don't see you: good afternoon, good evening, and good night.
