“What Happens in San Diego…” – by HydrangeaHussy
Stassi, Kristiana, and Vail arrive first for Stassi’s birthday. Stassi wants a chill birthday, rather than her usual drama-fest. She also wants Vail to choose her side, rather than get sucked in by Jax and Scheana. Two of the Sur servers announce that they received second-round invites to Scheana’s wedding, two weeks after the RSVP deadline. That’s just kind of tacky. Vail isn’t comfortable with the sh*t-talking and correctly wonders what they will say about her. Katie isn’t happy that Other Tom was invited to the bachelor party and wedding, but she wasn’t. It’s just tacky to invite one part of a couple to a wedding, but not include a plus-one.
Scheana is at Lisa’s to talk about a Sur event. Lisa is hosting a party for a charity, Same Sky, and wants to make sure that it goes well. Lisa is attending Scheana’s wedding, but is not being involved in the planning. Pandora is helping with the planning. Scheana tells Lisa that she didn’t invite Stassi or Katie. Lisa notes that it’s rude to invite Other Tom, but not Katie. She thinks that Katie should be invited to the bachelor/bachelorette to see how she behaves. I think this is going to end badly. Lisa has the ratings game figured out. What reason, other than ratings gold, would make someone think that it’s a good idea for Scheana to invite her former-BFF-now-worst-enemy’s side-kick to her bachelorette party?
Despite all evidence to the contrary, Jax is still dating Tiffany. Or, at least, Tiffany thinks that Jax is still dating her and arranges a guys’ trip to San Diego for the guys. She’s also coming to Miami for the bachelor/bachelorette. He is clearly enjoying the perks of this “relationship.” Katie is nervous because Jax always gets the guys drunk and pushes them into bad situations. I think that she has every reason to be concerned. Tom hopes that this trip is about the guys, rather than about hooking up with girls. Jax told Tiffany that he had coffee with Vail, after he posted about it on Twitter. Tiffany was, of course, not pleased with him seeing Vail.
The guys are staying at the Hard Rock resort in San Diego. The weekend starts with some time by the pool. Peter is the only single guy, but Jax is ready to find some girls. He is encouraging Other Tom to make out with other girls. Jax is such a great friend. This is just disgusting. Jax is a horrible person – he’s already forgotten about the girlfriend who set up the whole weekend and is encouraging his friends to cheat on the girlfriends.
Back at Sur, the team is getting ready for Lisa’s event. Scheana, Ariana, and Katie are working. Scheana invites Katie to the bachelorette party, since Other Tom is going to the bachelor party. Katie says that she wants to try to improve their relationship, but she really just wants to take the trip with Other Tom. The event is going well when Lisa arrives.
Back in San Diego, the guys are getting ready to go out. Jax isn’t drunk enough yet. Ugh. The guys are really appreciative of Tiffany’s help with the weekend. Jax immediately begins hitting on the waitress. Tom is carefully watching Jax to be sure he doesn’t screw up wince Tiffany set the whole weekend up. Then, Jax disappears. The next morning, Jax is not feeling well and doesn’t remember much. Go figure. He doesn’t want Tiffany to know that he got that drunk. Tom is not pleased with Jax’s behavior. He calls Jax out for bringing girls back to the suite and hooking up with one of them. Jax says that he didn’t and doesn’t remember, but there’s footage. Tom says that he will not lie to Tiffany about it because Jax would tell any of their girlfriends if they did the same thing.
Stassi is painting in her apartment, still no sign of her boyfriend. Kristina compliments the painting, even though it’s just a chevron pattern. Kristina misses Stassi at Sur, since she only has Katie there. Umm, you’re there to work, not to hang with your friends. Stassi is still pissed that Other Tom might be going to Scheana’s wedding without Katie. Just let the guy actually screw up before you skewer him.
Katie tells Other Tom that she was invited to the bachelorette and bridal shower. This makes Other Tom happy because she won’t be pissed that he is going now. He correctly notes that Stassi will feel betrayed. Katie thinks that Stassi will understand. Oh, dream on dream-weaver. She doesn’t feel like Other Tom is telling her everything about the trip. Tom arrives to fill her in. He tells her that Jax slept with a girl in the bathroom of the suite that Tiffany set up for him. Other Tom doesn’t want to talk about it, but Tom is pissed that Jax would spread rumors about them. Tom is beginning to realize that Jax is not a good friend. He questions whether they should tell Tiffany.
It’s Scheana bridal shower. Lisa is pleased to see Katie there. Katie is enjoying herself and thinks that she made the right choice to let go of her anger. Scheana tells Pandora that she does plan to talk to Stassi. Katie doesn’t understand why Stassi is mad at Scheana when Scheana just wants everyone to get along. Katie agrees that reconciliation would be good for everyone. Scheana agrees to try one last time. Ariana and Katie bring up San Diego. Scheana is surprised that Jax cheated on Tiffany. Really? Kristen and Carmen (Jax’s ex) are surprised that Katie is at the shower. She worries that Katie will talk trash to Stassi. Kristen isn’t looking forward to Miami because Katie and Ariana will be there. Neither Kristen or Carmen are surprised that Jax cheated on Tiffany. Kristen hopes that Tom tells Tiffany so that Jax will tell the truth about Tom and the Miami girl. She needs to let it go!
The guys have lunch. Other Tom tells them that Katie is going to the bachelorette. Jax thinks that Stassi is going to be pissed. They realize that they can’t get so drunk in Miami. Jax denies hooking up with anyone in San Diego. Though he claimed not to remember at the time, he now clearly remembers everything. He says that he told Tiffany that the girl was sick and that he helped her. The girl kept grabbing him and that he kicked her out. Tom sees this as a desperate play to keep them from telling Tiffany. Other Tom notices that Jax is pretty bad at lying, for someone who has been lying for his entire life. Tom tells Jax that he won’t lie to Tiffany if she asks him. Jax tells him not to say things that aren’t true, because Tom has been in situations that didn’t look right. Wasn’t Jax the one who spread those rumors? Tom and Other Tom know that Jax is lying. Jax immediately calls Tiffany and it doesn’t seem like she knows anything about the weekend. He tells her that he got into situations that he wasn’t comfortable with everything that happened. She didn’t know that the girls came back to the room. What a liar! Tiffany is mad that he didn’t tell her any of this before. How does anyone date this guy after watching this show?
Stassi and Scheana meet up to talk. It starts polite and casual, but Stassi can’t help but criticize Scheana’s dress. Stassi doesn’t understand why Scheana wanted to talk to her. She doesn’t know what she ever did to Scheana. Scheana explains that Stassi agreed to be part of her wedding, then began talking trash about her. Stassi didn’t know that Katie is coming to the bachelorette party. Now she’s pissed at Katie. Scheana tells Stassi that she was going to invite Stassi, but now she isn’t. Stassi doesn’t want to come and is pissed that Scheana became friends with Kristen and Jax. Scheana then began re-tweeting nasty things about Stassi. It seems like these two will never be friends. Stassi feels like she’s losing friends, but that’s ok because she doesn’t want friends who don’t have the same values. Stassi leaves, announcing that she is moving on. Next week is the Miami trip, should be interesting.
