Tom: I'm Kristen's Punching Bag

Tom opens up about the aftermath of cheating on Kristen and his thoughts on Scheana’s “Tooth Incident.”

"Scheana's Tooth". . .Well, don't get me wrong, I understand that an injury like that has to be so catastrophic and devastating, but at times I felt like I heard so much about "Scheana's Tooth" that it could very well be the title of a three part book series that would rival Lord of the Rings in length!

Hmm. . .OK, so let's think about this for a minute. None of us called Scheana the day of her (not even close to life threatening) oral surgery because. . .we are all bad people? Or just maybe, there's more to it than it just being about the tooth. . .I will let you come up with your own conclusion...

Oh, and now her and Pandora are bestie's wearing the same outfits. . .Jeez. . .Watching Scheana dry-hump Pandora kinda says it all. I feel the tooth thing is one more thing that Scheana used to get her to be Lisa's favorite.
 
See, Scheana was insecure at that point because she knew full well that she had violated our trust, and the fact that she refused to admit this further more annoyed most of us. Instead she spent her time manipulating Lisa with constant tears, who facilitated bullying us into formal apologies because of this damn tooth situation. It overall put a wedge between Scheana and the rest of us and further added to the tension between Kristen and Lisa, as well as Stassi and Lisa.

Stassi opted to "fake apologize" to Scheana to get Lisa off her back. I think it's pretty damn s----y for Scheana to use her "tooth incident" to manipulate people and situations to her favor, all while jeopardizing our jobs and relationship with Lisa.

Kristen definitely overreacted to the bartending situation at Kyle's. I know that it came from pent up frustration with Lisa. But Lisa put Scheana in charge of us at Kyle's party, and in my opinion (and probably most everyone else's), she did this to ruffle Kristen and the rest of our feathers. Believe it or not, Lisa likes to stir things up sometimes. But it wasn't the time or the place or the battle that Kristen should have picked.

I was really embarrassed with the way Kristen acted. And, of course, because she is my girlfriend, I definitely feel the residual heat from Lisa and it always puts me in the most awkward position. She deserved the probation.

 

At that point I was pretty much over the Jax and Stassi thing, you can only hear about something so much. Plus Jax changes his mind like changes his socks. I will always try to help Jax out the best I can, but it gets frustrating when one minute Jax is telling me how much in love he is with Stassi, and the next he is showing me a picture of some new girl he just met.

I’m really frustrated with Kristen's constant scolding. The fact that Kristen pretty much tells anyone with two ears that I cheated on her gets really obnoxious at times. It's been over three months, and still every time Kristen has two glasses of wine she wants to started telling or reminding everyone that I cheated on her. And the only time she wants to sit down and talk about our relationship is after at least a bottle of wine. Pretty much every social gathering or every time the girls get together and drink, I become a punching bag.

Katie: Stassi Overstepped Boundaries

Katie discusses why she didn't give Tom and ultimatum and why Stassi's advice was out-of-line.

The days following Tom's admission of past infidelity were taxing both mentally and emotionally. Tom and I spent hours pouring our hearts out, crying, and taking a hard look at the current state and the future of our relationship. While I cherish and value the opinions of my friends, I was not interested in their opinions of how I should handle this situation. For weeks, everyone was weighing in on Tom and I's relationship to a point that felt it was invasive and frustrating. Tom and I are good match. We are each other's best friends. We don't have a perfect relationship. We understand there are areas where we really need to work on, but we decided to make that a priority. I wanted to go over the recent events and revelations in solidarity. I wanted to focus soley on what my heart felt. I didn't want my thoughts and feelings to be colored by anyone else.

 

 

 

While I understood that Stassi did have good intentions, she began to over step certain boundaries. I didn't need Stassi to fight my battle, but rather to just support my decision and be there for me. Of course I didn't want Tom to continue having a close relationship with Jax. I was fed up with Jax's lies and meddling. I didn't understand why Tom so passionately defended his friendship with Jax, especially when I felt he should have been passionately defending OUR relationship. I began to understand that I was going to have to just compromise with Tom -- and I confidently I could do that with out compromising my feelings and integrity. I wasn't going to let Jax be the reason that Tom and I end our relationship. Sometimes ultimatums are necessary, but this wasn't one of those times. I didn't want to be the ultimatum girlfriend, nobody wants to date or be that girl. Tom assured me that he would take necessary measures to ensure that his friendship with Jax wouldn't interfere with our relationship and that no matter what that I was a priority to him. I felt comfortable with our compromise, and I don't think that makes me weak. Relationships, and life for that matter, are not black and white. They are full of compromise and benefits of the doubt. Stassi was maybe just giving me tough love, but to call me weak during such a critical time for me was hurtful. Stassi hasn't always made the best decisions in terms of relationships. She's made decisions I wouldn't personally make, but I allow her to make her own decisions and do my best to support her. I would have liked to have had that in return. Stassi has removed herself from this group of people and no longer worked at SUR, so it's very easy for her to tell Tom to cut it off with Jax and tell me to disassociate from anything having to do with these people. That isn't really want I want, nor isn't it realistic. I still work at SUR and Tom and I both are friends with people in this group. It's nearly impossible to avoid certain people, and it makes life easier to try and co exist.
