Sur was busier than ever. The restaurant had been open for well over a decade and it doesn’t appear as if it ever had a slump. But unfortunately, the staff and their drama still hasn’t changed. This season both Scheana and Katie thought that Lala was some low down skank so she was out of their circle however Brittany was now firmly part of the group. Brittany had actually gotten a job at Sur so she was now with everyone almost all the time. So the only person that had a problem with that was her boyfriend Jax.
Jax and Brittany had been together for a year which is pretty long for him. However, he was beginning to feel crowded because he was practically spending the whole day with Brittany and there wasn’t really a break in between. So Jax was getting frustrated though what helped him take his mind off of it was what he allegedly saw one night. Jax had told Tom while they were mixing drinks that Kristen had come over to his place to hang out with Brittany and one night the girls took it too far.
Jax had said that he saw Brittany and Kristen later on his bed and the sensors had to work extra hard to bleep out what Jax had described. Though Tom had thought it was sort of funny and so he had told Lisa who had been surprised, to say the least. Lisa usually doesn’t like to have couples working at the restaurant together and she had said that she was at the point where she would prefer to have Brittany over Jax yet she had been absolutely shocked to find out that Brittany and Kristen had hooked up. And that Jax had thought it was karma.
Jax had been known to cheat on his girlfriends however Brittany had ended up cheating on him and he didn’t appear to have a problem with it. Yet, Jax had been smart enough to warn Kristen that he had been gossiping and neither Kristen nor Jax had been happy about that. The ladies both claim that they had gotten drunk and maybe shared a few kisses. So the group outing that night at the SkyBar was difficult. Jax kept telling the story to everyone and Tom helped. Tom had of course, told his girlfriend Ariana what he heard and she had been slightly smug.
Kristen had once accused Ariana of being the other woman and basically called her every word she could think of. So Ariana had felt vindicated that it was now Kristen that was the other woman though that night it wasn’t Kristen that was the center of attention because both James and Lala had stirred the pot first. James and Lala were now best friends so they liked to hang out with each other and they had thought that it wouldn’t be so bad to walk up to “the group”. And that turned out to a be a huge mistake.They were told to go away and naturally Lala was called a slut while James was called a joke. So James and Lala retaliated. They had made jokes about Scheana and Katie and at one point James had decided to jerk off a bottle of cranberry juice all over everyone before he walked away with their alcohol. But Jax had almost risked his parole because he had wanted to fight James. He had actually gotten up to do it before his friends managed to calm him down and to be frank he wasn’t the only one that nearly lost control.

Everybody had been ticked off and it had only gotten worse when Tom and Ariana showed up. Tom and Ariana were friends with the group as well as with James and Lala. So Katie had gotten upset and had gone off on a rant. She had said that James and Lala were horrible people and she had basically wanted Ariana and Tom to choose. Though Schwartz didn’t like that and he had said that Katie had reverted back to her old self because Stassi came back. Schwartz believes that Stassi makes Katie drink more and get aggressive so he hadn’t backed up Katie during the fight.
Schwartz had said that Tom was his friend and that had been that for him. However, Katie had said that she hated that Schwartz never supported her and that he hasn’t learned to do it in the six years that they have been together. So their relationship was still having problems. They had gotten a new apartment, dogs, and had even set a wedding date yet Schwartz sometimes talks like he doesn’t feel sure about marrying Katie. The fiasco at the SkyBar had been the start of it and it had been a downside from there.
Schwartz hadn’t liked the fact that Katie tried to tear down his friends and that she put his best friend Tom in a tough spot that eventually made Tom and Ariana leave early. Yet, Katie kept going. Katie talked to Lisa about Lala and more importantly James. So Lisa said that she would talk to him, but Katie later crowed about that to her girlfriends. Katie, Scheana, Kristen, and Stassi had all met up at Katie’s apartment to discuss wedding plans and somehow they ended up going full on mean girl which Schwartz hated to see.
The ladies had talked about James and Lala and they didn’t hold back. They had said that James was still a prick even if his parents were splitting up and his father had moved back to England and they had also had a weapon against Lala. Lala was allegedly seeing a married man that was according to rumors also her sugar daddy so the ladies had a pretty good laugh at that. They made fun of Lala for calling someone else’s husband her boyfriend and Katie’s ugly side truly came out because Schwartz was doing best not to cringe.
But Lisa had lived up to her promise and she had talked to James about his behavior because she felt it was getting difficult to defend his actions.
