Tom Sandoval tried to make peace with his ex, Kristen, on the Jan. 12 episode of ‘Vanderpump Rules,’ but it only intensified her hate for his current girlfriend, Ariana. Plus, Jax’s alleged gay past came back to haunt him.
‘Vanderpump Rules’: Tom Sandoval Still Loves Kristen Doute — January 12 Recap
Kristen’s strong distaste for Tom’s current girlfriend, Ariana, was starting to put a damper on Scheana‘s bachelorette party in Miami, so Tom decided to take Kristen aside and hash things out.
Unfortunately, when he cried his eyes out and admitted that he was actually happy during the six years they were together, Kristen took that as a sign he may want to get back together.
Tom’s exact words were: “There was a time that I loved Kristen, and you know, there is a little part of that that stays with you.”
During her interview, Kristen said she now knows that Tom still loves her and if Ariana weren’t in the picture, they’d have a relationship. So she admitted that her mission now is to get rid of Ariana. (Wasn’t that always Kristen’s mission?)
Sorry, Tom, but you just opened Pandora’s box.
Jax: Is He Gay? — He Admits He Hooked Up With A Man
By now, any loyal fan of Vanderpump Rules has read the stories — Jax used to go by the name Jason (his birth name), and he supposedly hooked up with a guy while living in Miami. Of course, this all happened before the star of Vanderpump Rules moved to Los Angeles and started working at SUR.
Well, Jax’s alleged gay past came back to haunt him when John, a friend of his and Tom Sandoval’s, came by to meet them for dinner.
Apparently, John used to rep models and Jax and Tom were two of his clients. However, John had a different relationship with Jax than he had with Tom. Jax lived with John — they shared a room — and he used to drive John’s car.
After a huge falling out (perhaps a breakup?), Jax moved to Los Angeles, changed his name, and never spoke to John again.
But despite how they ended things, John refused to talk bad about Jax during tonight’s episode. And Jax never fully admitted to having an affair with the guy, but John was overheard saying something about being “over” him. And they both told each other “I love you.”
Later, Scheana said that Jax admitted to making out with John a few times, but he said he was “probably drunk.”
Elsewhere, Stassi had a glass of wine with Lisa Vanderpump at SUR and revealed she’s upset with Katie for hanging out with her enemies — basically, everyone who works at SUR. Lisa made an observation that seemed on point — she said Stassi seems to be looking for followers, not friends.
What do YOU think, HollywoodLifers? Is Stassi just looking for followers? Will she and Katie ever make up? Do you think Jax was dating John? And should Tom and Kristen get back together? Tell us how you feel!
