Vanderpump Rules season 3 episode 2 begins with the big fight between Tom Sandoval and Kristen Doute’s new boyfriend James Kennedy at Scheana Marie’s birthday party. The fight began because Tom went to confront Kristen about spreading the rumors that he cheated on Ariana Madix with Annemarie Kunkel in Miami. Tom has a swollen nose and black eye. Tom wakes up feeling really embarrassed about the fight.
Ariana doesn’t buy Kristen’s story. She thinks Kristen is intentionally ambushing him. But the one question she does have for Tom is about the claim that he told Annemarie that he and Ariana had broken up 3 weeks earlier. Tom denies that he ever said this.
Ariana claims that she is “very aware and knows all about Tom’s past”.
Interestingly BFF Scheana Marie claimed that a part of her “thinks Tom got away with something”. So I am not so sure that Kristen is wrong here. In her Bravo blog she said this:
“What I love most about this episode is that I don’t feel defensive writing about it. What everyone else thinks about Tom cheating on Ariana was written all over their faces. The bullsh– was undeniable. The only real question was: “why do I care?!?”
“While everyone loves to deflect and say it’s none of my business (perhaps) — when has that ever stopped me? My curiosity was first piqued because I was also mentioned in Miami girl’s (aka Annemarie’s) social media posts. At the time I was still very hurt that Tom had cheated and broken up with me. We were together for six years, you guys. It took me longer than it took him to get over it.”
“James made a good point at Rainbow Room: how could Ariana be so immune to the idea that Tom could be f—ing her over? Their relationship started based on a lie. He cheated on me, so what makes her so sure he wouldn’t do it to her? In my experience, relationships like that will end the way that they started. Scheana says that Tom is “such a good liar” and Ariana then confirms that she “knows when Tom is lying”? I’m happy to be in a relationship where that’s not a factor.”
“The look on Scheana’s face throughout this entire episode says it all (but you can do your own investigating to make up your own mind). It’s actually sad to watch Ariana constantly defend Tom’s actions as if she were there in Miami. The boys were there for a job. They didn’t NEED girls to accompany them anywhere. That photo of Tom “sleeping” is fake. If anyone knows the difference between Tom sleeping and sleep posing, it’s me.”
OUCH!!! Well hopefully Mr. Jax will spill the beans on this and the whole truth will emerge because someone is lying!
