Lisa wonders if perhaps Stassi should consider being with no one instead of Jax or Frank.

Welcome back,to my little oasis of craziness in WeHo!

I see so many of you are constantly saying how can I put up with their nonsense? I ask myself that too. Remember I have probably about 60 staff there. You don't see all of it. Also, I have the same at Villa Blanca. Let's keep this in perspective. It all happens there, but my restaurants are successful and until this show, my customers were blissfully unaware of the behind the scenes dynamics that I am often involved in.

I was saddened to see the meltdown between Stassi and Jax, and also appalled to see Frank have no allegiance to Jax whatsoever. Stassi when asking "Who should I be with?". . .How about nobody? Why are theses kids in such a rush to jump out of the frying pan and into the fire?

You are seeing their personal lives, which obviously sometimes spills over into the restaurant, but mostly it is in the down time. Let us not forget this is a television show and if I kept the cameras in the restaurant 12 hours a day and you were witnessing us chopping onions, you would be bored in a hot second.

You are only just getting to know everybody and I can tell you that in my opinion Jax needed to step it up in their relationship. Don't judge Stassi too harshly. She is over emotional yes, but fundamentally a good girl. Look they have all been friends for years, if they weren't decent people, they would not still be in my employ.

For me to witness many of the situations that have played out, that I like you am only seeing as of late, am I disappointed with their behavior? Yes I am. But if most employers saw what a bunch of twenty-something kids did out of the workplace, maybe many wouldn't have a job Monday morning!

They occasionally have a drink after they have finished their shift but that's it. Front of house they are professional and that is the most important thing to me. We rarely have complaints about the service and we often have 300 in the restaurant and many more in the lounge and garden.

Sur has always been a unique restaurant, often described as one of the sexiest restaurants in Los Angeles in the Zagat guide. It is the music, the ambiance, the flowers, the delicious home cooking, and, yes, the staff too. I was fascinated by how open emotionally they all are. So keep watching. It is incredibly unpredictable and a lot of surprises.

Until next week,love always Lisa.
