Kristen on her Burlesque Blowup
Kristen discusses confronting Dani at the SURlesque bash, the Tom and Ariana rumors, and her glam mug shot.
Stassi did not come over to "style" me. She came over so that we could get ready together for our passport photos. She gave herself a little too much credit. I was pretty stoked to finally get my passport. I felt so sheltered! I have been to Canada a million times, but only the birth certificate was required way back when. I knew that as soon as I got it, I would start traveling and Cabo would be the perfect destination to receive my first stamp.
Insert foot in mouth. . .I was not bragging about my mugshot, but I had to make light of the situation. I got a DUI years ago, but was not "booked." I had to go back months later to get fingerprinted and have my photo taken, so damn right I was going to walk in done up. Why not?
I was definitely upset with Stassi for attacking my relationship with Tom at lunch that day, but it wasn't an end all argument. I appreciate that she was just trying to look out for me, but I was really trying to live in the present moment with where Tom and I currently were. It was like finally he and I were back on track and happy -- I didn't want to let the rumor mill at SUR ruin that. I felt that if I wasn't concerned, my friends should just be happy for me.
Danielle had no place to even voice an opinion about my relationship with Tom and/or his "banter" with Ariana. She doesn't know any of us well enough and it was purely an uneducated observation. Dani and I were not friends, so it really pissed me off to have her spreading these rumors like the damn plague. Not only did I have my friends knocking my relationship with Tom, now I had to deal with a random co-worker trying to put a wedge between us. I wanted to and was ready to turn over a new leaf both at work and with the love of my life. It was also crucial that I build a positive rapport with Lisa and didn't want anything to mess that up.
