So I hear everyone complaining about how far away Scheana's apartment is and I'm thinking they must be exaggerating so I google the general area and find directions to SUR. How the hell can something 9 miles away take 45 minutes to get to?! 

I'm not even suggesting that 45 minutes is far, it's not. But for 9 miles it's ridiculous. Cali is a whole 'nother world ya'll. 

Meanwhile, her new man saying they need a night apart cracked me up. Poor girl, she's so into him even if she says she's not, and he's just....not. That seems to be the story of her life.

Scheana and the acting bug and signing back with her old "manager" and wanting to challenge herself???

Manager: "We can definitely get you some work" (that will involve nudity and lots of dudes because that's all that we can get for your level of talent).

Scheana needs a good haircut STAT.  What a mess.

Tom and Ariana need to have a conversation STAT. 

And I agree with Ariana.  You don't talk to a group of people about your significant other's sex life.  That's their call.

I think Tom is preparing to break up with Ariana, whether he realizes it or not, so it doesn't bother him so much to sprinkle a little dirt around about her.

Scheana is trying way too hard to convince herself Adam is into her.

While I do agree that Tom should not have gossiped about Ariana's sexuality, what does she expect being on a Bravo show?  Any of these jerks will sell you out for a storyline.

Can I just say though that Ariana/Lala would make a much more interesting couple than Ariana/Tom or Lala/MyMan?

Shoot KIKI, I was just typing the same thing - so funny, so accurate. Will never view James as a non elf again!

I feel like Schena was trying to be self aware about her comment to the producers “last season I looked like the girl who was married to Shay but in love with rob and now I oook like the girl who last season was dating rob but really wanted Adam..” and it didn’t work. 

FI sucks. Like are people still enjoying him?

I can't deal with Billie, because she DOES try to spin everything. She knows full well how things went down, then just acts all - "Who me??" 

Billie does this, but at the same time I give her a bit of a pass because her anger does overlap her legitimate trauma and some of her more altruistic motives.

Lala is the person I actually loathe. There are assholes in this cast who have pulled bigger more heinous shit, but Lala is one of the few who acts like an asshole and insists she's somehow on the side of the angels. Billie did start that conversation off reasonably, when Lala decided to go to 11 really quickly because she wasn't prepared to be the least bit thoughtful or slightly remorseful. But she also pulled the same shit with Raquel. I find everything about her so disingenuous and manipulative. And her shitty apology to Raquel was the definition of perfunctory. "I'm sorry I called you a twat. You're welcome." Her karma is to end up like Kim Zolciak.

I literally don't understand the weird parameters of the Sandoval/Ariana relationship.

I really dislike these people, but it's a matter of degrees where they land on that spectrum.

I suspect that you're right and that this is why he's seems so pissy about everything (more so than usual) this season. He's taking all his negative feelings about his relationship and projecting them outwards.

Ariana is a piece of shit ... she’s stuck up and thinks the world revolves around her ... she treats Tom like a dog and is always telling him what he’s doing wrong... granted Tom is a sissy and he seems more attracted to himself and the other Tom... I really don’t think Ariana even likes Tom ... Tom is always complaining they never have sex and he’s always trying to sleep with her and she’s never in the mood but she’ll hop in the back seat of car and let lala go down on her .... can’t stand her

Shoutout to Katie’s low-key Taco Bell sweatshirt.

Also: Shoutout to the shot of Scheana’s “It’s all happening” tattoo in the middle of the Lala/Billie beef.

On that note, I am reluctantly on Billie’s side *in that instance.* She seemed pretty low key at first, and Lala just got so dismissive and loud.

Correct me if I am wrong but haven’t we had whole seasons of drama about cheating? Ariana cheated on Tom right in front of his face and he is supposed to like it because why? Because it was a same sex hook up so that doesn’t count?

Wait a minute.... she cheated on him behind his back. He was in the front seat.

I wasn't surprised to hear about Ariana's sexuality.  She and Sandoval have always given off the vibe of being sexually fluid - Sandoval especially.  Can see why he was upset.  He constantly talks about not getting any while in the meantime, his girl has no issue getting eaten out by a woman literally in his face. For a dude that cries all the time, was interesting how he wasn't in tears when he was having it out with Ariana.

The producers know how to get the best dirt: when the cast is shit-faced and loose lipped. Alcohol is truly a truth serum. Sandoval should have kept his mouth shut.  I get that it's TV but there were no cameras around when things went down (pun intended). No one had to know.

I think Jax is starting to grow up a bit. It's about time since he's pushing 40.

Scheana's only real storyline is her guy situation and she's milking it.

Maybe I'm hormonal but I got a little teary-eyed when the Toms got emotional seeing TomTom.

Honestly, 45 minutes is optimistic.  I have to go to MDR tomorrow and I don't have to go "South of SUR forever and ever" because I'm already down by the 10 and I'm giving myself an hour because traffic.  If I was going at a better time of day I might be able to do it in 30 minutes, but I'd give myself 45 -- and I wouldn't take the 10 to the 405 to the 90, because I don't hate myself.  La Cienega to the 90 is usually faster.  For reference, on Stassi's map I'm a smidge up and right of where Washington meets the 10 and I'm going to just below the D in Lincoln Blvd.  I could just take Washington all the way through, but that usually takes a year, but I might take it home so I can go to In-N-Out.

Maybe in the 80s or 90s.  I remember traffic not being as bad once upon a time, but now it's like everywhere in LA takes an hour.  There're so many people and everything is always under construction.

I can't be bothered to do any checking on this, but based on how sweaty everyone was I'm assuming this was filmed in early July.  July was miserable last year. 

James in his 70s wig was hilarious to me.  

I loved when Lisa called to tell the Toms not to come that you can hear Katie say "but he flat ironed his hair" and that FI was sad because he'd already picked out his outfit.

Lala was actually fairly mellow for Lala, Billie was the first to raise her voice and Billie was the one to chase after Lala yelling about her not being better than anyone.  Lala took it to 100 when Billie brought in MyMan, but she's right that no one wants to include Billie because she's shown her ass.

For once Jax gave good advice. Tom doesn’t have any time to waste. Just like Jax said if you get a house and then get married and she decides that she doesnt want to have kids and that’s a dealbreaker then you are wasting your time.

Time to trade up Tom. You traded up when you dumped Kristen and hooked up with Ariana. Now it’s time to do it again.

“Raquel sorry I called you a twat.” OK I don’t like Laler but I cackled. Stassi asking why women don’t want to muff dive in her also tickled my funny bone. 

Billie was extra about the GNI stuff, but Katie was very ungracious when Billie apologized. I’d expect no less from her though.

Yes!! I am firmly on Team Sandoval on this one. Ariana is lucky that Tom isn’t making this THE cheating scandal of the season! What the hell?! Ariana cheats with Sandoval RIGHT THERE and somehow HE’S the bad guy for telling his friends when cheating and telling and yelling is the cornerstone of this franchise. How is Ariana any more innocent than Kristin cheating with Jax while Sandoval was in the other room? Simply because it’s a woman he shouldn’t care? Do they have an open relationship—or just when it comes to women for her? If so, it must not be top secret for Lala to know it would be “okay” to ask—and Ariana thinking it’s just fine to immediately hop over the seat without a word to Tom and go to town with him right there. And if it was just a sudden thing, then that makes it even worse. I mean if people can fly in star witnesses to uncover cheating, I think it’s well within bounds for him to confide in his friends about it.

James - a muppet AND an elf!  The cartoonish one, not the graceful one from The Lord of the Rings.

 

I have a friend who lived and worked in LA about 10 years ago talking about the relentless traffic and the freeway.  I think anyone who watched Clueless back in the 90s remembers Mr Horowitz's quote about everywhere in LA taking 20 minutes to get to.

 

Sheana is bummed that her life didn't end up working out as the wife of a billionaire.  She latches on to ANY guy with the tiniest amount of significance because she's so desperate.  I bet Meghan Markle is her hero.  She was a divorced woman in her 30s, but ended up marrying into royalty, despite her hideous family.  Surprised that she didn't try to hook into Jeff Bezos whilst he was having an affair with Lauren Sanchez.

 

Ariana was never that into Tom, she just got an ego boost from him being so infatuated with her.  She could talk about not wanting to marry all she wants, but if she ever met a guy she was crazy-mad in love with, of course she would.  She's just never been insanely in love with a guy who was never that into her.  It does feel different.  I remember Tom looking like the cat that got the cream in season 3 when he was telling Schwartz about waking up and just getting down to it and how he'd already had sex with Ariana that morning.  Ariana was definitely taking the role of The Cool Girl.  It was all bullshit.

See also: Atlanta, So Fla, etc. I live 10 miles from where I work (purposefully, it’s the closest I could afford). Used to (5 years ago) take 20 minutes for a 6.30am commute & 25 for a 4.30pm commute. Now, the am commute is the same, but the evening commute is FUBAR. I leave at 4.10 & it takes 45 minutes to an hour. Waaaahhhhh. Fucking forget about going to see friends in other parts of Atlanta, unless it’s organized & planned like the invasion of Mars!

How long ago was this Ariana/Lala sex? Damn it, I’m agreeing w Ariana at the bar fight w FI! That death glare was a thing of beauty! Stassi’s reaction: 💯 Stassi!!

I laughed until I cried at the TT kissing photo & Sandoval’s subsequent tears.

In the "pop up" video repeat, they had a small blurb about Lala wanting to keep what happened secret because she cheated on Herman. (Paraphrasing because I don't remember the exact wording).  So I think Lala, who instigated it, considered cheating when she sobered up.

I have to imagine there was some sort of consent given which makes it 'not cheating.'  Something like 'Sandoval I want to give your girlfriend oral' to which he probably said 'Sure that's cool' and then had second thoughts once he got undoubtedly heckled/mocked by one or both of the women.  When he was telling the story he didn't seem to have any issue with it and even came off braggy, but when he got found out for telling the story it was I was uncomfortable/didn't you notice, you should have known I wasn't okay with it/etc.  And if he was uncomfortable or wasn't okay with her extracurriculars, it was up to him to say that in the moment.  Neither men nor women should be able to blame others for not hearing words they never said.

Yep.  When Lala heard cis-privilege, she was proud of not knowing what it was and very dismissive and everyone thought she was adorable and funny.  If you've heard of any ___-privilege, it doesn't take much to figure out what cis-privilege is.

Valid point. I did laugh when Lala was all, "Oh it happened, but I lied to protect Ariana". Yet you're telling everyone in your confessional. Does she really think she's having a private conversation with a priest or something?

I think that's fair; I haven't read everything that was tweeted, and it's quite possible that somewhere in that exchange Katie or Lala said something about understanding that this is an especially sensitive issue for Billie (given her history) and expressed regret about not thinking about that at the time. I don't see any perfect behavior in this scenario, Billie gave as good as she got, but would it have killed them to say sorry I didn't think about how their unintentional exclusion could have made Billie feel...at some point... like Ariana did? Maybe they did say that, and good for them if they did. 

But I will say this: I'm a middle-aged, Canadian suburban housewife, and I know what cis-privilege means; the fact that Lala doesn't, or refuses to admit she does, tells me something about her. 

And just in general, I'm done with Herman-as-sacrosanct. If you don't want Herman talked about, I politely suggest you get off my tv.

Most everyone put in 100% more effort dressing up for Stassi and Ariana’s BD party, compared to Jax and Sandoval’s BD party. 

One of Ariana’s TH dresses. There’s a diagonal slit across the chest. Blech. It looks like her rightside breast is in a sling or hammock.

Billie looks better as a brunette. Or maybe she just needs a more natural shade of blonde.  

I couldn’t follow the Jax/James spat. Did James declare that when Lala wants it, there’s no stopping her; Jax claimed she wanted Jax, but Jax rebuffed her; then James insisted that Jax ultimately relented?

Have to say... I'd be pretty pissed if Beau told Stassi her "face is annoying and her hat is annoying and to get away from him because he doesn't want to look at her" so I don't really know why I'm not more pissed at Ariana.  Maybe I have a double standard for the mean things women can say to men.
