Andy Cohen hosts the reunion. He asks Jax how things are with Carmen. He says he doesn’t know, but shares he saw her last night. He asks when he and Stassi last spoke. He says he’s run into her, but they haven’t spoken for two years.

Andy asks Kristen how it felt to be the pariah of the group when Jax is now accepted. She says it’s funny they’re accepting Jax when he has ruined people’s relationships and she had nothing to do with it.

Sandoval says Jax does stir the pot, but he doesn’t do it maliciously. He says Jax does it out of insecurity. Lisa says he sleeps with other people’s girlfriends because he doesn’t give a damn.
Jax says he was going through his first breakup with Stassi.

Cohen brings up the rumor about Sandoval cheating on Ariana. He asks Ariana why he didn’t lose faith in him despite all the evidence. She says other people with nothing to do with their relationship were bringing her stories that didn’t add up. Sandoval says he hasn’t made it hard for Ariana to trust him.

Cohen says Sandoval has cheated on girlfriends before, alluding to Kristen. She says nothing is impossible and that’s not really the point.  Sandoval says he’s tired of people talking about a situation they were not present for. Schwartz says he was with him all night and nothing happened.

Cohen says people didn’t buy Jax’s deviated septum story. He says that other people on the show have had plastic surgery as well. Scheana says she thinks Stassi is the only one who has had plastic surgery on her face, but she does Botox.

Cohen asks James if he came into Scheana’s birthday party looking for a fight. He says if he were he’d have done a lot more than he did. Sandoval says he was in his face. Schwartz comes in and James says he shouldn’t even start because he punched him in the face. Schwartz says he has a punchable face.

Cohen asks Jax if Carmen and Tiffany knew he was dating at the same time knew about eachother, and he says they did. Katie says them knowing about eachother doesn’t make it okay.

When asked about it, Kristen says Carmen was not aware that he was also dating Tiffany at the same time. She says it is embarrassing for her to watch that on TV. He comes back by bringing up the fact that they were together last night. Jax says it’s not a secret who he is and what he’s doing, and it doesn’t take a rocket scientist to figure out. He doesn’t plan on settling down anytime soon.

Cohen then asks Jax what happened with the girl in the bathroom. Jax still denies that it happened, but he understands why people were coming at him.

He asks Sandoval what exactly happened. He says that they went back to the room and the girl and Jax were in the bathroom, then Jax came out sweating. Schwartz says regardless of what happened, Jax needed to learn a lesson about meddling in others’ relationships.

Cohen brings up when Jax called his girlfriend and told her about the incident as if he had told her all of this information before. Jax says he may have left some stuff out, and Lisa says he does whatever in the moment not caring about the destruction he causes. Cohen asks who believes Jax, and no one says anything.

Cohen brings up Jax using Sandoval’s cheating rumors when his own cheating is exposed.
Sandoval says when Jax gets backed into a corner he will say anything and deflect to escape. Schwartz says Jax gets wounded animal syndrome when he is cornered.

Cohen says a lot of viewers thought Kristen left her cell phone on the table on purpose so that people would read her text messages and start drama. Kristen says she didn’t do that because she didn’t expect anyone to go through her phone because she wouldn’t go through someone else’s. She says if she wanted to make a spectacle of it, she’d have said it at the table, asking everyone if they would really put it past her to do that.

Cohen says Sandoval sounds suspicious telling Jax not to rat him and Schwartz out. He says Jax has ratted him out before and this is about situations that have occurred over time. He says if he were worried about Jax ratting him out, he’d never say that.

Kristen brings up his cheating and Sandoval says she has had month long affairs with other guys. Kristen says they are toxic to eachother. Lisa says she knows Sandoval and Ariana were not together while he was with Kristen. Kristen, however, still says she believes he cheated when Cohen asks her.

Kristen brings up the fact that Sandoval spent the night after they broke up at Ariana’s, staying out until 8 a.m. and then lying about it. He and Ariana deny sleeping together that night.
He says Kristen has accused him of other affairs, and she says yes. He denies it.

Cohen asks Jax if he ever had sexual relations with John, and he says no. He shows a clip of John saying he loves him. Jax says he came from Michigan and this is the first gay man he ever came across.

Jax says he has kissed a lot of his gay friends on the lips and does to this day.  Lisa says he is a dog who will stick it in anything, so when he saw the show, she believed they had a thing. Jax says she can believe whatever she wants to believe.

Kristen says everyone needs to take it down a notch with believing she was threatening Ariana with physical violence. Ariana brings up the fact that Kristen punched someone (James) in the face.

When asked about his emotional closure conversation with Kristen, Sandoval says he was cold in breaking up with Kristen because he had tried to break up with her several times. He says afterward, he tried to be the best ex-boyfriend he could be and help her move on.

James says that conversation was unnecessary and that he thought they would have a very different conversation. When he found out that she was wiping the tears off Sandoval’s face, it made him sick, he says. When asked if he thinks Kristen is over Sandoval, he says that she is and that the two of them are madly in love.

Schwartz criticizes Stassi for being so cold to Katie, cutting her off just because she went on the trip with Scheana. He says she should be appalled at her own behavior, and that she thinks she’s being more mature than everyone else but she’s actually being less mature.

Stassi arrives at the reunion.

Cohen asks Jax if he has any love with her. Jax says of course because of the past relationship and that Cohen asks Lisa if Jax would ever take Stassi back, and she says not right now. Jax says that he wouldn’t, just support her as a friend.

Lisa says it’s because Katie didn’t do exactly what she wanted, and that she thinks Katie was somewhat subservient to Stassi. She says Katie stood up to Stassi and she supports it, and that she thinks they have seen her emancipation.

Stassi comes out, and Cohen asks her why she went to such great pains to avoid him. Sandoval brings up the look of fear on her face when Jax arrived at the anniversary party and she stormed out.

She says she psyched herself out so much because she did not want things to be about her and Jax anymore. She says that he makes up lies about people and manipulates the situation, and that she is in a relationship and she didn’t feel right hanging out with an ex.

Jax says everything was fine and as soon as they got into the relationship it changed. He says that shows her boyfriend’s insecurity.

Stassi says he didn’t, but she would want the same thing from him. Jax says he just wanted to see how she was in life, and that he had e-mailed her. Stassi says she must have been blocked at the time and that she owes him nothing.

Scheana says the whole reason she and Stassi couldn’t hang out was that she was friends with Kristen and now Kristen and Stassi are friends.

Stassi says Kristen is the only person who will talk to her. When James says he had texted her, she says she had blocked him.

Cohen asks Stassi if Jax doesn’t deserve the closure conversation because he cheated, and she says he did more than cheat and did many things that have seriously affected her life.

Scheana tells Stassi that she’s incapable of being nice about anything that isn’t centered around herself, using the example of Stassi mocking her wedding dress.

When Cohen asks her if she actually cares about any of these people, there is a long pause and then she says no.

Lisa says many of these people have helped her, and Stassi says Katie is the only person who has been there for her.

Katie says she disposes of people like they’re things and that she is the most selfish person she has ever met in her life.

Now it is time to talk about “Miami Girl.” Kristen admits that she met the girl on Twitter, and encouraged her to come to LA – but she didn’t fly her in like everyone thought. James and Kristen both are 100% certain that Tom cheated on Arianna with “Miami Girl.” Tom insists that it never happened. Andy reminds him that when the girl walked in the bar, he ran out of the back door and looked super shady. If he hadn’t cheated with her then he wouldn’t have had to run out of work. Arianna sticks up for Tom and says that Miami Girl’s story didn’t add up and she knows Tom didn’t cheat on her.

After Miami Girl left the bar – Sheena and Kristen got in a huge fight over it, then Kristen told her boss to go “suck a d—k.” Lisa sat down with Kristen afterwards and officially fired her for all of the drama that she caused with Miami Girl. Andy asks Lisa if he would ever take Kristen back and she confesses probably not. Kristen agrees and knows that her behavior was out of control, and she thinks that Lisa didn’t have a choice but to fire her.

Sheena’s wedding day was a huge event in the last season – Andy shows a clip of Sheena being a total bridezilla and freaking out on the wedding planner over when they were going to cut the cake and throw the bouquet. Sheena’s wedding was right after Katie and Schwartz’s cheating scandal – and he tried to give Katie a ring on a necklace, but not an engagement ring. Katie broke down in tears and said she “didn’t want a ring on a string.” Talk turns to Sheena’s crop top wedding dress, and what Stassi said about her wedding dress online.

Stassi freaks out that she is tired of being made look like a bully and picking on Sheena and announces she has a legitimate reason for hating Sheena. Stassi confesses that there is a sex tape of her and Sheena’s ex boyfriend has it – and she hears that Sheena watched it, laughed at it, and said that they should sell the video to TMZ.

Andy changes the subject to Kristen and James’s huge fight at Sheena’s wedding – Kristen wound up punching James in the face. James admits that he kind of brought it on himself because he was at a boiling point and said some crazy things when he was drunk. Kristen confesses that she was at her breaking point because she was sick of no one believing her about Tom cheating on Arianna.

Andy shares a clip of Jax confirming Kristen’s story and saying that Tom did cheat on Arianna in Miami. Jax changes his story again and admits that he wasn’t there – he was just repeating what the Miami Girl said. Arianna admits that sometimes she wishes Tom and Jax weren’t friends anymore.

Before the reunion ends, Andy asks Stassi if she will ever be back on Vanderpump Rules – Stassi says that she can’t wait to leave the stage and she has been completely miserable throughout the entire reunion. Andy asks the Sur crew if there is anything they would like to say to Stassi before she is completely done with Vanderpump Rules. Arianna admits that she admired Stassi this season because she told Kristen to “let it go” about the Miami Girl instead of encouraging her to stir up drama. Andy asks Lisa if Stassi is ever welcome back to Sur – and she says that Stassi is done, because she “trashed Sur and her after she was nothing but good to her.”

The reunion closes with Lisa saying that she sees growth in some of them, they have come a long way, and it gives her a little bit of hope.
