Every little thing about it was bizarre, and now to me, it makes a lot sense as a result of she didn’t give a f**ok! As a result of she was in love with Tom Sandoval and hooking up with him the entire time behind Ariana’s again. Like what the f**ok?! Additionally, whereas she was sleeping within the different room? Like are you able to attempt to be authentic?”

Concentrating on Tom subsequent, Stassi argued:

“All of us knew that Sandoval was an extremely egocentric, narcissistic and egotistical one who spent ten years attempting to persuade everybody he was the nice man. It’s a must to be a brand new stage of evil to do that to somebody who has been nothing however an exquisite associate to you.”
