Bravotv.com: How did you feel heading into your engagement party?

Bravotv.com: Was it nice having your mom there to celebrate you and Katie?
TS: Having my mom there was a dream come true! Honestly the whole thing felt like a fantasy. There were moments where it was a pain in the ass, but still fantasy land.
Bravotv.com: Were you surprised when Kristen and Stassi showed up? How did you think Lisa was going to react when she saw them?
TS: If I'm being totally honest I was not surprised they showed up. Doute never lets a little thing like not being invited stop her and I personally invited Stassi, so yeah. I was happy to have them there! I'm a lover.
Bravotv.com: What did you think of Tom Sandoval's live performance?
TS: I was fan-boying through the entire performance. You gotta give it up to them performing in there. Takes confidence. Mojo. I loved it.
TS: Jax and James are archenemies. Jax just straight up hates that guy and, honestly, I don't blame him. James is obnoxious as hell. Jax doesn't do himself any favors in regards to squashing though. He instigated too. I don't hate James though; he's got some positive aspects to him.
