It's Not Like I Killed Scheana's Cat!

Stassi shares her side of the tooth incident with Scheana and her disappointment in Jax's sitdown with her dad.

Scheana's attitude about the tooth incident was actually quite frustrating because the day before she went in to get her tooth fixed, she had done something to me that really hurt my feelings.

Of course I care about her health and well-being, and it wasn't as if her life was at stake. This tooth thing became so ridiculous to me because it spiraled into so much more. It's not like I killed her cat! I just didn't text her about her tooth because we were in the middle of a fight.

I also didn't understand why I was the only one being blamed for not texting her when Katie and Kristen hadn't texted her either. Why was this all on me? Why was I the only bad guy? Now looking back, I wish I would've just sent an obligatory text, because it would have saved me from all this grief and mindless drama.



There is never any excuse for treating your boss with disrespect. Lisa is always so good to us. She encourages us to be the best versions of ourselves and I'm so grateful for that. It's natural to get frustrated at work, but under no circumstances should that translate into disrespect towards the woman who has given us so much. When we were at the bar afterwards, I felt a little disheartened as Kristen began directing her anger towards us when we were simply trying to give her advice. And it was absolutely fair of Lisa to suspend her. Kristen caused a scene at a very important party we were working. That behavior shouldn't go unpunished.

I didn't realize my dad was so honest with Jax and it was nice to see him call Jax out when they had their talk. Unfortunately, I don't think any of it registered for Jax. It was annoying to see him laugh off so much of what my dad said. Homeboy never learns. 

Kristen and Tom’s situation is heartbreaking. I know how it feels to be cheated on, and in Vegas, nonetheless. And I believe that Kristen should have taken a break from him, otherwise it looks like cheating is okay. I can't ever say what a couple should do, because no one ever knows what really goes on between two people. But when she is constantly talking and crying about it to me, it becomes my business because it takes over every conversation we have.

Apologizing to Scheana doesn't fix things right away. I'm not naive enough to think that all will be forgotten. It takes time to rebuild trust, and friendship is something that involves work and nurturing.  I wanted to move past the conflicts with Scheana, but the tooth thing felt so trifling.

I felt very uncomfortable when everyone started talking about Kristen at Scheana and Pandora’s party. If Scheana didn't want to discuss that on her birthday then why did she not only bring it up, but also keep harping on it over and over? That didn't make sense to me. I also felt it was inappropriate to talk about someone in front of so, so, so many people. That should have been a private discussion if Scheana wanted to have it.

I think there was just a little too much tequila the night of Scheana and Pandora’s party! All the drama seemed so petty that I did my best to simply stay out of it. Something new for me! Haha. When I saw Tom and Shay fighting, I honestly had thought they were joking and messing around. They are the last two people I would have expected that from. But again, too many cocktails that night.

I was actually very surprised Scheana wanted me to stay. Yes, we were trying to get past our issues, but Katie is my best friend and my loyalty is to her. In addition, I understood where Katie's frustrations were coming from. She had been upset that Scheana had only cared about making up with me, and that all came bubbling up.

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.
