The phrase "I know for a fact" gets thrown around erroneously around here and it is unfortunate because people who hear that tend to believe it. Rumors are spread, reputations and lives are tainted, and coworkers start giving you the side-eye because they are passing judgement based on a nonsensical turn of phrase. I know from experience. Without anything more than heresay and bitter gossip, it is up to someone to be honest and confess information about themselves.
When Schwartz admitted his past indiscretion to Katie, I was proud of him for being honest with her. I really felt for her these past two episodes and never understood why anyone would want to take her down like that. I didn't see one person doing her any favors besides Schwartz by being honest and Tom by trying to calm Jax down at their lunch. I watched Stassi and Kristina breed negativity in Katie's mind and plant seeds of insecurity while she was in a vulnerable place. Katie and Schwartz are both strong, wonderful, and loving people. I'm sure they will get through this and come out even better on the other side. Meanwhile, Jax needs to chill out and mind his own beeswax.
For a more fun time, get some awesome pool toys and crash a snobby Hollywood rooftop pool! Life's too short for a lot of things, but taking yourself too seriously is at the top of that list. Silly super cool pool parties will beat out looking hot sipping cocktails any day.
