“The Vanderpump Rules” Reunion part 2 begins, as Andy, Lisa, and the, “Ridiculously attractive staff,” at SUR continue the verbal battle. As we left off, Katie was ripping Stassi to shreds for her cut and run antics. Katie finding her voice as she blasts Stassi understandably, for their one-sided friendship. Andy asks Stassi about when and why things had gone bad with Katie? Then I got really confused because, Stassi can’t come up with a good reason for cutting Katie off. Katie stones Stassi,”You pick up the damn phone and you call me back, are your fingers broken?” Stassi tells Andy she understood why Katie went to Miami. Stassi, apparently defeated without an argument, responds,”I think your thinking of it as so black and white”. The SUR crew all laugh out loud in utter disbelief as Stassi tries to get out of the mass humiliation by finally apologizing that Katie was so hurt. It swirls around to Stassi even owning up to hurting all of the cast with her nasty comments all season. After Schwartz tries to explain how hurt Katie was by ending the friendship, we hear Stassi try to contend that Katie was rumored to be speaking badly about Stassi’s boyfriend. This excuse was quickly shot down, as once again Stassi just falls on her sword an apologizes again.
Tom Schwartz, suddenly shifts gears and questions Jax,”Why in the world did you tattoo Stassi’s face on your arm?” It gets creepy for a minute giving Jax a hard time, as Jax profoundly swears, the tattoo is not Stassi. Andy hammers Jax until the tattoo is revealed. It really does look like a hybrid Stassi- Carmen face on the whole side of his arm. Jax has once again, tattooed his blundering errors on his body, as a shocked Stassi responds,” Your a straight up serial killer!”. Jax isn’t done been beaten, as Andy asks why he wanted Katie and Tom Schwartz to break up? Jax at first, makes the claim that Scwartz was hanging out more often and was unhappy. Then Katie, like the voice of reason, gets down to the fact that Jax was really mad at Katie, and retaliated by trying to interfere in their relationship. Jax trying to cop out for a second says, “He is a big boy he makes his own decisions.” Jax owes it eventually and shows a tiny amount of remorse for doing it. I mean, trying to make Schwartz kiss a girl by drunk slight of hand, pushing heads together, is a setup from the beginning.
Jax isn’t the only one to get hammered, as Schwartz now defends why he told Katie about the L.A. girl kiss,but not the Vegas girl kiss. Schwartz made out with not one but two girls, and says,”If I laid both things on her, I wasn’t sure if the relationship could handle it.” This brings up the motherly advise and support that Katie got from Lisa Vanderpump, during this cheating scandal. Lisa gives universal advice for Katie not to settle for second best. “I have really seen her grow up and I am very proud of her.” Lisa clearly cares for her staff, and really wants the very best for them. Even Sandoval chimes in and says that Katie really is the most improved this year.
Next, we hear Stassi try to rationalize Kristen’s stalker behavior towards Sandoval this season. She sugar coats it, by saying her behavior was extreme by trying to expose Sandoval. Kristen was determined to prove she wasn’t a liar. The point finally announced, when Scheana states,”No one even called her a liar though.’ Which seems to be the motive in Kristen’s conspiring to bring Miami girl face to face with Sandoval in Los Angeles. Kristen says that Miami Girl started following her on social media, she figured out who she was, but finally admits that she did reach out to Miami girl to start the showdown at SUR. Kristen confirms that she did not fly her there. Her clear involvement in this incident here as she smiles and supports her own truth. Andy makes a point, that it was odd to see this girl yelling at him across the bar claiming they had sex. Sandoval tries to defend himself with Miami girl, begins to gross the viewers out with details of menstrual cycles and rumors that he went down on Miami girl. After hearing this, I officially didn’t care if Tom had sex with a Tiger. Andy, yearns to know why Sandoval tore out of there when this girl had arrived at SUR. Ariana stands by her man saying the facts don’t make sense and the penis reference wasn’t exactly hard evidence of a sexual encounter. Pun intended.
Kristen getting into a screaming match with Scheana and her Manager Diana was center stage next. Telling her manager to,”Suck a dick”, and,” To go *uck herself.” This wasn’t exactly going to give Kristen the best section in the restaurant. On Kristen finally getting fired, Lisa asks Kristen,” What did you expect really, what did you expect after talking to Diana like that?” Lisa affirms that a little humility would have gone a long way if she wanted to keep her job. Lisa explains that there was a history with her working at SUR so long, and owning her crap would have been key to remaining at SUR.
It was nice to hear Kristen admit that working with her ex-boyfriend and his new girlfriend only fed her fire and she should have really quit a long time ago. Next, Andy addresses how awkward the ring on a string was as a promise of a promise, of an engagement, within days of finding out that he had a “moment” with Vegas chick. It was hard to see Katie so wounded and hurt when receiving this gift at Scheana’s wedding. Schwartz was told specifically by Katie not to give her a ring on a string. She wants the flowering, romantic moment, but not at a wedding. Schwartz responds,” I did not expect that response at all, maybe I am naive.” Well we have to give him credit for owning this very insensitive, dumb move. Katie understands he was trying to show his love, but would much rather prefer,”How about you just don’t make out with girls, and that will show me you love me.” Wow Katie really wins major points for telling it straight 5 months and 3 weeks into her 6 month engagement ultimatum.
Then, as Stassi tries to condone her crop top wedding dress bashing, as we get hit with the real reason that Stassi hates Scheana. It appears the whole group excluding Andy, knows why Stassi is so bitter with Scheana. Like a runaway train, Stassi volunteers information suggesting that she has a sex tape that Scheana was not only aware of, but watched and shared with others. Stassi announces, “If I hated somebody, and I saw that their ex-boyfriend was showing a video, I would get on the phone Immediately.” After revealing herself, makes the claim,” I would rather look like a bitch, than have it come out, that I have a video of me.” Lamely trying to justify her rude comments about Scheana on her wedding day. I was dumbfounded that if she didn’t want the sex tape found out,. then why bring it up on national TV? Stassi contends she is hurt by hearing a rumor that Scheana wanted to sell the sex tape to TMZ. Scheana did show and gossip about this
video that apparently was an ex- boyfriend that came to SUR to show everyone. Scheana flat out denies this allegation, but did apologize for watching and sharing the video. Well I guess, it was just a matter of time before a sex tape was leaked with this group.
Kristen punching James at Sheana wedding is brought up as Andy asks politely,”Do you think it’s OK for a girl to hit a guy?” Kristen says its not OK for anyone to hit anyone. She does a crappy job of trying to justify this whacky behavior. Kristen claims thing she thought to do was just walk away. James contends it was his fault because he was in her face, and he is continuing to learn from his mistakes. Finally one thing James Kennedy says that makes sense. Sandoval sticks up for James saying, that James watching Kristen walking away with another man will make it ten times worse when all he is trying to do is get love back from Kristen.
Like a Roller Coaster, we get back onto Kristen being passionate to prove her stalker antics as. Andy states, “You went on a final spree to prove that you were not a liar, as you discussed Tom’s infidelity with Ariana.” Somehow Kristen seems to blame Jax for repeating the alleged, sexual act. Andy corners Jax and says he at dinner he flat out said that Sandoval had sex with that girl, then flip- flops his story the next day of plausible deniability. Finally, we hear from Jax that all of the these rumors actually came from the Miami girls mouth, and he didn’t actually see anything. Kristen tries to lamely slim her way out of her making a huge scene about a girl that sold her,”story” to the tabloids. Sandoval feels like Jax has no credibility at all. Jax claims he does have remorse for what he has done, and he admits freely he makes mistakes, but then counteracts this statement with,” Nobody died, nobody got pregnant, nobody got divorced, it’s
As the final buildup comes out about the ticking time bomb that is Katie and her ultimatum, Schwartz tricks us all to believe he was going to do it right there. He disappoints as he breaks out a a cocktail ring and asks to continue to be his girlfriend until he grows the balls to ask. Schwartz manages to once again smack Katie with a continued, be my girlfriend maneuver. As he slides this joke ring on her finger, Andy reminds Schwartz that he is running out of time, as he begins to shift and get uncomfortable, as his continued commitment issues are clearly still present. He swears he is a changed man and to trust that it’s coming.
The reunion ends with Andy asking Lisa, “Is Stassi welcomed back at SUR?” Lisa replies strongly, “Relationship is over, she trashes SUR, she trashes all these people.” Lisa feels like Stassi is so disrespectful to her and she feels she has been nothing but good to her. It appears Lisa Vanderpump has just about had it with Stassi and her selfish antics over the years. Its very clear that Lisa just can’t handle Stassi, but does compliment how things have changed with this group yet, Kristen, Stassi, and Jax have not. Ouch, the final cut goes to Lisa Vanderpump. After closing with the group, Andy ends this reunion as Shay, Peter, Ken, and most importantly, Giggy joins with a toast with a sexy rose red cocktail. “LONG LIVE SUR!”
