“Tears Over Miami” – by HydrangeaHussy
The gang (minus Stassi) are in Miami for Scheana and Shay’s joint bachelor/bachelorette party. Even Katie has escaped from Stassi’s grasp and is in attendance. I’m sure that Katie will feel the wrath of Stassi when they return. The girls and guys went out separately the night before, but ended up meeting up at a club. The guys fought and the girls had a good time. Scheana managed to check off most of the items on her list. Vail is still under Jax’s spell and is tired of being warned about him. At this point, she has it coming. The only one not having a great time is Ariana, who is tired of Kristen’s attitude. Other Tom is happy to be spending time and having fun with Katie. Back in LA, Stassi is ignoring Katie’s texts and hanging out with Kristina. Stassi is annoyed that the AC is out in her apartment but maintenance can’t get to it until the next week. I’ve been there and it sucks. Stassi has to bring up the bachelorette party. She would rather be at home and sweaty than on the beach with Scheana. They agree that the party sounds awful. Stassi sees her and Katie as a team, so she feels betrayed that Katie is making friends with Scheana. I don’t think they were a team, but more a leader and minion. Kristina thinks that Kati went for Other Tom but that she’ll continue to be friend with Scheana when they return to LA. Stassi needs to get over herself. Katie can be friends with whoever she wants and doesn’t have to fight Stassi’s battles for her. Tom and Jax lived in Miami for two years and were friends with John, a model scout and man-about-town. John comes to the hotel to visit Tom, but Jax is still asleep. We learn that Jax, aka Jason, lived with John, drove John’s cars, and let John pretty much take care of him in Miami. That sounds a little sketch to me. Tom invites John to dinner with the group. This should be good since John and Jax had a falling out years ago. There were rumors about a relationship between John and Jax. Tom later says that the rumors seem somewhat credible because, right after the rumors started, Jax moved to LA and changed his name. Ariana is having a bridal shower for Scheana. Kristen is late for the party because she’s been having sex and shooting tequila. Ariana is not amused. Kristen starts making snarky comments about Ariana as they are constructing toilet paper dresses. Kristen is just crazy, there’s no way around it. She needs to chill with the nasty comments and try not to ruin her friend’s bachelorette trip. Eventually the whole group goes to the pool. Jax is proud that he hasn’t had sex all weekend. Vail tells him that he shouldn’t be proud and tells him that he has a sex addiction problem. She doesn’t find that attractive. Thank goodness! Jax may have finally made Vail realize that he isn’t a good guy. Stassi can’t stay away from Sur. She talks a lot of trash about working there, but she hangs out there an awful lot. She tells Lisa all of their crazy tricks to drink on the job. She shows Lisa the hiding place in the bathroom for liquor. Lisa finds it sad that Stassi is so proud of her antics. I think that Stassi doesn’t have anything else going on in her life, so she has to hang on to Sur. Stassi tells Lisa that she loves Sur, but is moving on. Lisa understands Stassi’s issue with Kristen, but says that the rest of Stassi’s issues are BS. Stassi begins listing all of the people that she has an issue with, and it’s a long list. Katie is now on the list for hanging out with Scheana, without first discussing it with Stassi. Back in Miami, the group is out to dinner. Tom and Ariana are running late. Kristen hopes that Ariana gets hit by a bus. Jax shuts her down, reminding her that they are there for Scheana and Shay. Kristen says that she’s been cool and hasn’t even looked at Ariana on the trip. She may not have looked at her, but she hasn’t talked about much else. Tom and Ariana enjoy their alone time in the cab. Ariana is anxious because Kristen is ruining her trip. Tom is over Kristen’s passive-aggressive digs. I am too. It’s childish and unnecessary. Ariana, Tom, and John arrive at the restaurant. It’s their last night in Miami. Jax explains that John was a model scout who placed Jax/Jason with his first agency. Jax tells the group that he lived with John, in John’s room, and that he had a nude photo in John’s house. It’s still in John’s living room. If they haven’t seen each other in 10 years, that’s very odd. All of the couples are being lovey. Kristen gets upset that Tom is kissing Ariana in front of her, though she was hanging on James earlier. James says that it’s only an issue when they are around Tom and Ariana, otherwise Kristen doesn’t worry about them. Kristen and James have to leave the table. Ariana is doing her best to ignore Kristen and Katie appreciates that. She notes that Ariana puts up with a lot to make Scheana happy. She wishes that Stassi would put up with more so that Katie could be happy. When Jax leaves the table, Vail asks for dirt on him from John and Tom. John refuses to give up anything, claiming bro-code. Vail wonders what they could be hiding. The group makes its way to a club for dancing and more drinking. Jax explains that, when he began modeling, it was associated with homosexuality. He was thrown into a world that he didn’t know anything about. John tells Jax that he still loves him but is over him. Jax appreciates that John jump started his career. The rumors are neither confirmed, nor denied. I don’t really care either way. Jax is still a scumbag either way. Katie calls Stassi, while Stassi is at Sur with Lisa. Lisa advises her to answer the phone. Stassi does, but is very short with Katie. Stassi says that she hopes that Katie is having a good time and hangs up. I’m not sure why Katie expected anything better from Stassi. Stassi is proud that she answered. Lisa advises Stassi not to cut Katie out of her life. Stassi seems ok with dumping her best friends anytime they do something that she doesn’t like. Lisa notes that Stassi isn’t looking for friends, she’s looking for followers. It seems like Katie is finally realizing this. Vail advises Katie that she should choose her boyfriend and her relationship over Stassi. Stassi should support Katie in making her relationship better. Tom and Kristen go outside to talk. Of course, she has to have drama. She gets very upset because Tom and Ariana are together. Kristen doesn’t think that Tom and Ariana are the same as her and James. She despises Ariana and doesn’t want Tom to be with her. She lost any right to tell Tom what to do when they broke up. She really needs to move on and quit holding on to this anger. Kristen thinks that Tom left her for Ariana. I think their relationship was already doomed, even before Ariana. She thinks that Tom is being hateful. Actually, she’s the one who is being passive-aggressive and hateful. It sounds like Kristen wants another chance with Tom, but Tom is over her. Tom breaks down and tells Kristen that he wants her to be happy. She is loving this attention. Tom returns to the group, while Kristen pulls herself together. Their conversation left Kristen convinced that Tom still has feelings for her, and that she has to break up Tom and Ariana so that they can have a relationship again. Ok, she is just delusional and crazy. She calls Ariana the ‘other woman’ that her boyfriend cheated with. Is she forgetting that she slept with Jax?
