Previously on “Vanderpump Rules”, Scheana had told Ariana that she had discussed what she believed to be a sudden change in Ariana’s personality with Ariana’s mother. And naturally that in turn had made Ariana curious.
She had wanted to know what it was exactly that they had discussed. And so eventually she asked her mother who then replied by sending her a screenshot of the texts she had shared with Scheana. But that ended up causing an even bigger problem.
Scheana had apparently implied that Ariana had begun to change after she started to see Tom and therefore when Tom and Ariana found out about what she had say – they had been left feeling betrayed. And they had wanted to confront Scheana about the line she had seemingly crossed. However, the fact that they were on a trip with all of their friends had meant something to them that neither Tom nor Ariana wanted to cause a scene.
So they had tried to move past what happened in order for them to still enjoy the trip. Yet Jax later burst their happy bubble when he brought the infamous Kristen. Jax had said that he wished that someone could come on the trip and Lala told him to just finish his sentence rather than start anything. And when Jax then tried to tell James to keep his lady in check – that erupted into a short but still bitter argument between James and Jax.
Only James did walk away before things truly got nasty between him and Jax. But after the very public argument, the others simply didn’t feel like they were in the partying mood anymore. So most of them had gotten up to walk away meanwhile Tom and Ariana decided to bring up the texts from Ariana’s mother with Scheana.
Though if they were expecting a genuine apology, then they’re just going to have to deal with disappointment. Scheana had actually stood by everything she had said in the texts and she had told Tom to his face that he has gotten cocky lately. And thus Scheana wasn’t upset about what she had done.
Ariana’s mother had asked her question and she defends herself by saying she didn’t sugarcoat it with the other woman. Scheana had said that Tom’s behavior was rubbing off on Ariana in the most negative way. And it seems that’s what she honestly believes.
But the Scheana and Ariana’s mother issue was put to the rest of the group. And Scheana’s new best friend Katie had of course sided with Scheana. Katie had heard what Scheana’s version of events and she had accepted without a question.
And unfortunately the same could said of Schwartz when Tom had told him his own version of events. So that then put Katie and Schwartz at odds because they were each trying to defend their friend to the other. However, they were two recently engaged people getting into an argument about something that didn’t in fact concern them.
So that had been a waste of time and that argument led to yet another night they had gone through without having sex. Apparently Schwartz had been counting the days and he said he has yet to sleep with his fiancée since getting engaged. And an argument about other people as well as Lala taking her top off while she was near Schwartz – meant the status in Katie and Schwartz’s sex life wasn’t going to change anytime soon.
However, the group had bigger problem on their hands. Brittany had finally gotten the courage to talk to Lala about the other woman’s flirting and that ended up opening a can of worms because while Lala was prepared to own up to what she did – Jax was not. He let Lala admit to flirting with him but he forgot to mention to Brittany that he had implied they were breaking up to Lala and that’s why she had felt it was ok to flirt with him.
And Jax had also forgotten the part where he had flirted back. He had once told Lala that he wanted to “f*** her” in front of their friends and that he wished he could do her without having to know about it. So Jax later just denied everything that Lala claimed he did.
And that resulted with Lala in tears because she felt like she had been thrown under the bus.
