Jax's Tattoo Should Just Say "Desperate"

Tom laments that complicated coffee table and tries to figure out what Scheana is so bent on sabotage. 

Scheana talking to Lisa about Schwartz and Shay's fight was a tattletale move, and the way she explained it was pretty much the complete opposite of what actually happened between Shay and Schwartz. Shay was probably the most drunk I've ever seen him, btw. . .

I feel like is just going through this sabotage mindset on a power trip. What bothers me the most about what she did is that she wasn't just a little bias and she didn't just exaggerate, but she full blown lied about what happened that night between Shay and Schwartz.

Scheana also most definitely knew that Schwartz was coming in to interview. News gets around SUR almost as fast as it comes out of your mouth. I've known Schwartz long enough to know he would've never come in for that interview if he know the chances of getting hired at SUR weren't probable or almost a sure thing. Scheana deep down is a good person, that's why it really bothers me to see her be so manipulative and shady.

Putting together that damn coffee table was way, way, WAAAY harder than it should have been!! I didn't even finish all the inside compartments and drawers until the next day! I've put together so many pieces of furniture from IKEA that were far more complicated with ease. Yesterday, I was in such disbelief over the difficulty of construction over this product that went back and checked my records and realized that this table was actually bought on some random website that Kristen found and bought when Googling coffee tables late night. So, my apologies to IKEA for blaming you. . .

With that being said, this coffee table had stickers labeling its parts with barely any adhesive left on them because they had been moved around so much. I should've stopped right there. . .But Kristen wants this coffee table put together, so I decided I'm not only going to have it done, but also have it done fast...

Talk about a FAIL. . .

When putting together this piece of s--- table, I would nearly get it completely assembled, only to realize I'm left holding a part that should have been put in the beginning! I'm not exaggerating when I say that I assembled and unassembled this table at least seven times! And for the record, I'm a guy who takes pride in the fact that I read directions, so don't even go there! This coffee table fiasco couldn't have come at a worse time especially when I'm trying to look like the reliable man in the relationship. Instead I was left looking incompetent and helpless, especially when Kristen had to step in to finish.

Jax should have just gotten "desperate" tattooed on his arm! He knew way better than to bring me, because I would've never EVER let that happen. I was pissed at Schwartz for letting him go through with it! Come on Schwartz! It's your job as a friend to keep Jax from doing something stupid like that! As far as me getting "Kristen" tattooed on my arm, Kristen would never expect or want me to do something like that. But, this past year, when we would all be out together, Jax would often act like this over the top gentleman in front of Stassi trying to woo her back into a relationship. Thanks to this facade, Schwartz and I would get some lovely passive aggressive comparisons to "Gentleman Jax" from our girlfriends.

I know Stassi is just primarily upset because Scheana is the main reason for the rift between her and Pandora and Lisa. I do think its pretty wrong for Scheana to mess with Stassi's job and professional relationships over the lack of a phone call post-surgery. Now Pandora did ask Scheana to work for Divine Addiction, and Pandora did come and tell Stassi about this herself, so Stassi really doesn't have a right to be mad at Scheana for that. Pandora brought Scheana on knowing how much it would upset Stassi, and this fact doesn't seem to bother her? It seems strange that Pandora would want to bring tension like that into her company. . .

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.
