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: This Is Just Plain Creepy

Katie thinks Tom Sandoval was put in a no-win situation.

Wow! I mean just WOW! I was biting my nails, laughing, and cringing through this episode.
Let me start by saying that following my conversation with Stassi, I had very mixed emotions. I felt very confident in my decisions and felt that I wasn't in the wrong and had to firmly stand my ground. I couldn't let Stassi make me feel guilty about something that I felt so strongly about. This was my life, and I was making necessary changes and choices to regain happiness. I was heartbroken over how our conversation went and the results. I didn't want our friendship to be over. How could she just throw it away? Schwartz was right in his blog when he said Stassi dehumanized me. She abandoned everything she knew about me and our friendship and was purely looking at me as a "link." That hurt. I don't throw friendships away, so I was going to leave the door open and if Stassi could accept me and the conditions, then I would happily continue our friendship. If not, well I did everything I could.
Now this Annemarie chick...I'm not sure what exactly she is doing here. Why was it so important for her to come here and confront Tom and Ariana with her "story"? I do not for a minute believe her story, aside from the fact that she did meet and hang out with the boys in Miami. I don't feel like delving into the semantics of it all, but it virtually doesn't add up. Watching Kristen wither while she spoke and chug wine as if Tom cheated on her with this girl was comical really. I'm still trying to figure out what Kristen feels she has to gain by orchestrating this whole thing, besides some karmic punishment. Why did she want to break Tom and Ariana up so bad? Does she realize that even if this were true that the fate of Tom and Ariana's relationship is THEIRS to decide? And if they were to break up, does she think that this would win Tom over? I'm seriously at a loss here. We had just come off an amazing trip and everyone was in a great place and this week was leading up to Scheana and Shay's wedding and Kristen decides to do this NOW?!

It sounds like Annemarie was reading lines as she spoke. No conviction in her voice. I understand why Tom ran away when he saw her. First of all, he was blindsided by this girl he met once in Miami who decided to fabricate a story. Now this is just plain creepy. She has taken it to new levels by showing up at his work like a crazed stalker. I don't blame him for getting out of there. He doesn't owe her anything and doesn't need to give her the time of day. On the other hand, to those who want to believe he cheated, the fact he ran away incriminates him further in their eyes. This is why I said it's not a good look to run away, because he didn't cheat and giving anyone the satisfaction of believing he did just makes the matter worse. It's tough because when people are accusing you of cheating and you really didn't, you want to just ignore it and not let it get to you, because if you do, then you will look guilty. But on the other hand, when you are being accused of something you didn't do it's really frustrating and you want to fight to prove your innocence, which can also make you look guilty. It's a double-edge sword. It's nearly impossible to handle and correct this situation when people are shoving it in your face.


I really felt for Scheana during her fight with Kristen. Scheana wasn't trying to make it about her, but Kristen put her in an impossible situation. Scheana has been an advocate for Kristen and stood by her and for Kristen to do something so selfish and cause Scheana to have to deal with this drama right before her wedding is completely unfair. I couldn't believe my eyes the way Kristen spoke to her and then to Diana, her boss. This is exactly the kind of behavior that management and Ken and Lisa DO NOT tolerate.


Thank god Tom and Ariana came back to work and apologized to Lisa. I loved the way they handled the second attempt by Annemarie. It further proves that the story this girl is spewing is complete garbage, and they aren't going to let her try and shake them. This girl has no purpose aside from wanting attention. I don't know anyone that would travel cross country to go and confront someone who they claim to have had a horrible one-night stand with. So I'm sorry Annemarie, but you've just wasted your time.
