‘Vanderpump Rules’: Stassi & Katie Fight & End Friendship — January 19 Recap

Whoa! Stassi is not someone you want to cross. But do you think she’s being too stubborn? We think it’s totally possible.

After pretty much ignoring Katie for traveling to Miami with everyone she hates, Stassi finally agreed to meet up with her bestie for a chat. Unfortunately, their talk didn’t go so well.

We’ll be honest — a lot of Stassi and Katie’s conversation went in one ear and out the other, but from what we gathered, Stassi feels Katie should cut Jax and Kristen off for betraying Stassi in the past. However, Katie feels that she needs to stand by her man, Tom Schwartz, who is friends with Jax, Kristen, and the rest of the SUR staff.

We totally understand where Stassi is coming from, but she’s putting Katie in an awkward position — forcing her to choose between her boyfriend and her best friend. That’s so not fair!

They said a few more words before Katie stormed off and Stassi was left wiping tears away. Is their friendship over for good? It sure seems that way. And we’ve learned EXCLUSIVELY from a birdie or two that they’re definitely not friends anymore. (We totally saw this coming.)

Jax & Peter Go On Dates

Meanwhile, Jax went on a lunch date with Carmen, during which he tried to woo her back into his arms. (He also said she was the best sex he ever had.) Carmen must be thinking with her brain and not her vageen because she wasn’t letting Jax win her over that easily. We have a feeling they’ll be hooking up by next week’s episode, though.

Peter also tried taking a stab at love. He invited Vail out for a cup of coffee, but tried turning it into a dinner date. She felt super uncomfortable, which made the entire situation feel totally awkward. We also learned that Peter once dated Katie and Stassi at the same time and then had to choose to stay with one. (He definitely picked Stassi, right?)

We must also note that Kristen is still on a vendetta to expose Tom’s alleged cheating. Kristen’s back in contact with the girl Tom Sandoval supposedly slept with while in Miami (another time, not during Scheana‘s bachelorette party) and based on the preview for next week’s episode, this woman will be paying a visit to Los Angeles and confronting him!
