TOM HAS PTSD FROM THE BOOK SIGNING? OH COME THE FUCK ONNNNNNNN.


lindseybobinsey

I'm cringing so hard


OhHowIMeantTo

I remember Sam Kieffer talking about being there for filming, and talking about how staged that entire scene was. He said that drinks were all free on production, there was no drama with Schwartz not knowing how to work the register as it wasn't necessary. He said that when Stassi started her book event, Sandoval wasn't even there. Production announced that Sandoval was going to arrive, so they had Stassi put her event on hold so that she and Sandoval could have their argument. They refilmed the argument several times, and not just stopping and pausing, but rather they would go from the top again and film the story again. Based on that account, Sandoval assuredly has no residual trauma from that event.


woah2035

He’s staging his ptsd from the staged fight.


Mimi_has_a_shell

I remember Ariana saying something like "Die a hero or live long enough to be a villain". I feel this is going to be Sandoval's path. I feel they are painting him a little whiny. **ETA:** I realize this is the BATMAN quote. I remembered her saying something like it. I actually just did a deep dive to try and find her exact words. Her exact words actually were the BATMAN quote. Season 8 epi 2; lunch with Scheana and Danica.


ughifeellikealoser

He’s like filling the vacuum Jax left a litttttle too comfortably


Kadenasj

That was actually Batman


Professoressa411

I’ve always been such a Sandy stan but he’s really being ridiculous with this Katie vendetta. Im glad Ariana and Tom are both calling him out on it


kikiandcoffee

Sandoval is really feeding into the whiny, entitled brat image. The part where he said, “I’ll front him the money, it’ll give me a 67% share. I’ll be primary holder.” If he loans Schwartz the money, he’s not going to allow Schwartz the opportunity to buy his shares back. Schwartz better get that in writing. He gives me Jax levels of insecurity and fame obsession.


zbornaks

Katie making a big-ass cookie and eating it? A fucking mood. I finally appreciate her after so many seasons.


hashtagtruthbomb

Yup.


shsbxu1738

Did Schwartz just….have Katie’s back?? If I hadn’t seen it myself I wouldn’t have believed it


recollectionsmayvary

I think weirdly he has her back more when she isn’t around than when she’s around and expecting it.


littleone0740

Tom… you’ve said your opinion of Katie to Schwartz. It’s time to let it go. Schwartz has made his choice to be with Katie. Enough already!


pinkbeary

I know seriously!! He just wants to be the #1 guy in Schwartz life


amandaofthehawk

I know Sandoval is a fan favorite around here buuuuutttt who’s gonna tell him he’s acting like a self absorbed little bitch


davidthomvs

I think everyone is realizing that he only came across well when contrasted with how insanely awful Jax is. On his own he’s a douche too apparently.


amandaofthehawk

Guess you either die the number 2 guy in the group or live long enough to see yourself become the douche


gkru

Or you DIE on a mountain


haleighr

I just imagine jax like peaking over the fence during the boys night


miz_k

Whimpering “I’m the #1 guy in this group”


wiscoand

The doctors eyes when he says 10 to 20 drinks was too much!


Mimi_has_a_shell

Sheana fast-tracked this relationship because her clock was ticking. I get it, I really do. But I'll be shocked if this lasts more than a couple of years.


Cherssssss

Definitely. I think before details of his previous relationship was known, everyone was a fan of them and how supportive he seemed to be. But now, it’s just awkward because it seems a little short sighted to have had a kid with a man who hasn’t seen his other kids for 4 years.


xScoopityWhoop

Yeah I think she’s just happy she got a hot, athletic baby daddy and beyond that she doesn’t care that much


davidthomvs

He’s such a weirdo baby. And he’s 100% jealous that he has to share Schwartz with Katie


zbornaks

Brock’s goal is to go back and take care of all his kids. What about Summer and Scheana? Are they moving to Australia? If not then how the fuck is he going to take care of all of them on two different continents? What is the actual plan here?


lilcheetah2

This is giving me 90 Day fiancé vibes


advocatecarey

This pickle ball scene is why DVR’s were invented.


GetMeAColdPop

Why does anyone need to say they got wet? WHY


b00youwh0ree

Right! Lala made this up, this doesn’t have to happen. And in fact, it shouldn’t.


hugship

I wouldn’t be surprised if Racquel let Lala win on purpose because it meant that lala would be in a good mood and not start more shit. If Lala had lost, you know she’d invent some reason to come at Racquel for to continue feeling superior.


aggieemily2013

Do I want to hang out with Katie?


lindseybobinsey

I mean, she has cookies


ravioliyogi

*she has ONE cookie


Professoressa411

She no longer has that cookie.


advocatecarey

Holy FUCK…take a Xanax, Sandoval! ![gif](giphy|Jc3uvrZPUBW5G)


amandaofthehawk

Brock really said “good as gold” with this confessional outfit ![gif](giphy|2A0cDHvjjJIDkOI61l)


haleighr

Randal is like the dad chaperoning the teens date night


pishanator

Picking up the tab at the end too to treat the kids


vodkasaucepizza

The creepy friends dad that hangs with the girls.


criva22

Is the PTSD from Tom because fans in general were not on his side? I feel like there’s more to the story here for him to be so worked up.


wiscoand

Right?! PTSD from that?


slumberingaardvark

PTSD from the film crew making them re-film the scene 3-4 times as witnessed by the public who were there? Who knows? Lol


veronicagetsmehigh

I can’t tell when they’re away or when they’re home because I feel like everyone’s homes look the same


wiresandwaves

My husband, who doesn’t regularly watch, as the theme song plays: “why are they spilling all their drinks?!”


Lola514

Best theme song ever


BrunoTheCat

That is honestly my absolute favorite part of the whole show. I know it's supposed to be cinematic, but I've always thought it was a way of warning everyone how awful they actually are at waiting tables.


ZombieWerewolfGhost

Hahahahahaha


ilovecorgipuppies

Scwartz “I would have manned up” ![gif](giphy|l0K471aQRXhZW1Oak)


nefanee

I know everyone loves Sandoval but I never did, I always thought he was a weenie.


ilovecorgipuppies

Bravo had a board meeting and some dipshit suggested pickle ball across all franchises


EnigmaticAardvark

There's probably some pickle ball organization that paid for promotion. Like that episode of Mad Men where they were trying to make the sport Jai Alai a thing.


lilscumbag__

a cocktail subscription box is an amazing idea idk the legalities of it but id subscribe


zbornaks

***PUMPTINI FLASHBACK***


vodkasaucepizza

I loved that scene. It lives rent free in my head.


GeorgeCuntstanza

Villa Rosa is my favorite character in the Bravo Cinematic Universe.


aintnuthnbutahoundog

Sandoval looks a little unwell to me tbh


vodkasaucepizza

Sallow


davidthomvs

I like that he’s yelling in a restaurant about being yelled at in a restaurant


haleighr

Waiiittt he’s back on child support but what about the amazing life in America he’s making?!?


recollectionsmayvary

Katie's massive cookie and Schwartz's unabashed love for a leisurely bath are the most relatable and likeable they've ever been...like this is more likeable than them at their wedding lol


AppleNeonOrange28

Her fist pumping alone while it’s cooking is a vibe.


tmp803

Katie and I are really similar and that scares me. I love to get stoned, do legos, and eat cookies. And when I’m surrounded by mean people I definitely can join in and go too far.


SoulsticeCleaner

I'll come smoke and talk shit with you. All of these are my favorite things.


ladevotchka

Yes 1000%. Also, Schwartz talking about his love of shrooms was sending me 🤣


aggieemily2013

HE DID NOT SAY PTSD.


PrettyLittleWhino

How would Sandoval react if Schwartz said Ariana couldn’t be involved in any way??


Mimi_has_a_shell

Lisa is going to SPOIL her grandson in the most "fantastical" manner imaginable.


AppleNeonOrange28

I want to be her grandson.


PrettyLittleWhino

Sandoval needs to fucking get over himself


PrettyLittleWhino

It would almost be better if the chid access thing was related to the restraining order. You’re telling me there’s ANOTHER reason he can’t see them? On top of a restraining order? Oh baby, there are just so many red flags


haleighr

I’d walk out if anyone was dogging my husband the way Sandoval dogs Katie to Schwartz face. Best friend or not you need to know your place. Spouse>friend


233Ivy

Scheana, GURLLLLL - open your eyes.


daylight427

Hahahaha Randall is a stand up man. Ok.


wiresandwaves

Why is scheana having this conversation at Sandoval’s and Ariana’s and not privately at home!?!


lindseybobinsey

Its a long drive to their place and production doesn't wanna mission 🤣


wiscoand

Scheana is, unfortunately, willing to overlook too much. I truly hope it doesn't bite her in the ass. But the way he speaks to her mother who is hands on is telling.


haleighr

Sandoval looks like every girl at the houston rodeo who only dresses country those 3 weeks of the year


otter-99

Just realized Charli wasn’t in this episode at all


ezekielragardos

Damn for everyone shitting on this season being a miss without the racist and problematic past cast… this episode totally proves them wrong.. a lot of realness.. I’m here for the new VPR


haleighr

Love Katie was open about her abortion. As a Texan worried about our future we really need to normalize this so much more


Kadoozer

I watch a lot of reality tv and can’t think of any other instances of anyone talking about abortion, let alone their own abortion. It’s crazy something so normal is never discussed.


realitytvicon

Danny pellegrino said that this episode tonight is very good. He also said it had a couple of jaw-dropping moments. We love to see it


ilovecorgipuppies

How many prework out pills did Sandoval snort


Mimi_has_a_shell

That is so over the top Tom! Major ptsd? FFS.


WhaddupComey

“See a therapist” 😂


vodkasaucepizza

My guess is that Brock came to America to pursue a career as a Khal Drogo impersonator and expected the wife and kids to go on the Renaissance tour with him.


vodkasaucepizza

Sandoval is going to be Liberace in a year.


zbornaks

Katie had an abortion? Kadooz to her for sharing her story. ![gif](giphy|AgPt9udT567spxbSHf)


PrettyLittleWhino

Here’s a major problem with Brock - he can never be a full time present dad to all his children. He will always live on the other side of the world from at least 1 of them. And Scheana knows this. Unless she plans to move to Australia, she knows he’s okay with being away from some of his kids. That is such a red flag to me


akckkc

Also having to move to America for ‘better opportunities’ is BS. He might not have been able to join the NFL (which he hasn’t in the US anyway), but we have a shitload of fitness/sports related jobs here. Melbourne is the sports capital of the world ffs. The way scheana talks you would think we’re some random island with a population of 30.


wiscoand

I truly hope this season ends with Katie being pregnant


couchhella

I have a weird feeling you could be onto something


aggieemily2013

Lol Australia is not a developing country Brock.


minyinnie

Lol I know the way he talks about it, he escaped a war torn village


veronicagetsmehigh

Raquel was nervous so she wrote jokes in advance- a true queen managing her anxiety


lilcheetah2

As a teacher I’m so proud of her


WhaddupComey

I will never understand what these women see in James.


notatalltruist

I gotta say, I'm impressed with Tom's honesty with their doctor! It shows maturity! The doctor doesn't care, she just wants to give good advice. Source: am healthcare, get lied to all the time. Lol Edit: a word


wiscoand

Tom is really over doing his outfits this season.


GeorgeCuntstanza

All the kudos to Katie for sharing the story around her decision to have an abortion. And honestly I’m a little in awe of them being able to keep it quiet for so long with this crew- wouldn’t have put it past Stassi or Jax to throw it out there during an argument. Again, props, Katie. Big time props 🥂


CoachVee

It’s official, Reza is a shittier person than anyone on VPR.


Sheess9141

I will say if there is one person in the world Stassi loves unconditionally it’s Katie. I’m not surprised she kept that quiet… Jax on the other hand


wiscoand

*pristine uterus* fuck yes, Katie!


catsandcasamigos

Good on Katie for feeling comfortable enough to share this.


recollectionsmayvary

i cannot get over how wholesome and pleasant and likeable Raquel is lol i really am so relieved the OG demons left so she can get a word in edgewise.


advocatecarey

Wow…dang, Katie is being extremely vulnerable this season.


PrettyLittleWhino

I am so proud of Katie right now!


kbestoliver5

Sprinted here to say just this. I’m not usually a Katie stan, but hell yes to normalizing our abortions. I think it’s really brave of her to share her story openly and I’m glad she did it.


aintnuthnbutahoundog

WE DON’T NEED ANYMORE PICKLEBALL MONTAGES


pishanator

The doctor is SHOOK by Tom hahahahahah


minyinnie

How quickly I SPRINTED here after Katie shared her abortion I’m so proud of them for sharing this!! It should not feel taboo to share, yet it is, and I’m so proud they faced that.


pishanator

Pls let me know if anyone here needs a recipe for one big cookie.


mimosapudica9

Villa Rosa has to be the least child-proof house ever 😯


vodkasaucepizza

And he’s such a giant goon and Scheana is a tiny tiny human, I’d be scared for her if I were her friend too.


aggieemily2013

Katie is brave. Her DMs are probably gonna be rough. (ETA: if you're thinking about making them rough, don't.)


advocatecarey

Subscription cocktail box?!? I’m in!


crop_top

I’m truly shocked they finally gave Ariana some side project love!


veronicagetsmehigh

I’m really enjoying Katie this season and I think that’s the first time I’ve said that


Mimi_has_a_shell

You hear only what you want to hear Scheana. I can see this situation having some credibility because my flags went up with how he spoke to Scheana and her Mom before pickleball.


AppleNeonOrange28

God Scheana trying to explain this away. I’m not a fan of hers, but girl please wake up and stop relying on men to make yourself feel worthy. I hate this for her.


ZombieWerewolfGhost

Hell yeah Katie thanks for normalizing this, as someone who also had one, love hearing this pro choice talking head rn


haleighr

Love how scheana is mad lala brought this up but had no issue bringing up shays addiction issues on tv


_hearitinthesilence

Ohhh, Scheana. You are not new to reality tv! These people crack me up thinking it would stay hidden. I at least appreciate him being honest about everything, and I mean, we don’t know the whole situation….but neither does Scheana, she only knows his version so it’s fucking dirty that she thought it was a good idea to bring him on and have it brought up for his kids/ex to see. And he is also a moron for signing on.


catsandcasamigos

Tom Sandoval is off his damn rocker and Tom Schwartz is a complete pushover. Ariana and katie should leave them in the dust and start their own bar.


catsandcasamigos

Why the f is Brock still here? Love Ariana blatantly calling him an idiot and him not even noticing.


lilcheetah2

Dear Tom, thank you for spending 25 G’s on my engagement, here’s a 14.99 cocktail


AmbitiousContest1437

Tom looks like Robin Williams in Birdcage.


itsalwayssunnyinphx

What in the Ace Ventura outfit is this Tom…


recollectionsmayvary

OMG Katie!! Honestly so proud of her and they’re actually kind of sweet in this moment.


iamlyndsie1

wtf is sandovals problem holy hell bye


pishanator

So much respect to Katie for talking about this so openly 💓💓💓


nefanee

Wow! Being open about an abortion without acting like the difficulty in getting pregnant is some sort of punishment. Good for them.


nomotaco

The retouching of Lisa's face is out of control!! She looks like she's melting in some scenes. Waxy af.


wiscoand

Why does Lala's baby nanny wear scrubs? I'm a nanny and wear street clothes


Mimi_has_a_shell

Dear Lala and Brock, You've both left your character at the door. Neither one of you are shining examples. Love, America.


PrincessOfDarkness_

I want to put a force field around Raquel during this thing w Lala. Also those braids lala is sporting are sending me 💀


hrbdyfc

TAKE A XANAX. CAAAAALM DOOOOWN


aggieemily2013

Arianna not about to be gaslit and I love it. Tom might be Jax, but Arianna isn't Brit.


tooyoungtobesotired

Oh dang. This is a jaw dropper. Did we know this?


lkn4laughs

What are these opportunities in America Brock speaks of? Reality tv?


moekay

Is this the house that Jeff Lewis helped design?


discoatmyfuneral

"disrespectfully, tell them to shut the fuck up" 💀


frenchfriessalad

As a lone Katie Stan for these past few years, all of these positive Katie comments are filling my heart with such joy


SunshineK84

You’re def not alone! I became a Stan when she reacted thoughtfully to that awful police prank


buymoreplants

I transformed into a Katie Stan when she opened up about her TBI and falling through the ceiling window thing.


nefanee

I thought I was the lone stan! Now we're 2!


frenchfriessalad

Hey sis! Happy to have found my people/person 🤣🤣


amandaofthehawk

By the looks of this resort get up, someone just saw fear and loathing in Las Vegas for the first time


zbornaks

Awww Schwartz has deformed sperm.


samanthainnc

Aw I have goosebumps. Good for them for sharing.


lilscumbag__

am i mis remembering the booking signing or was tom not the asshole in that situation?


otter-99

Sandoval had always been annoying but I really think this season he’s doing the most


zbornaks

RAQUEL ACTUALLY DID IT I LOVE HER.


meesh987

Without Jax on the show, I’m really starting to see how incredibly annoying Sandoval truly is. Funny how Sandoval claims Katie feels entitled to her feelings when he’s literally the exact same way. He wasn’t right in the Stassi situation and any time Schwartz tries to tell him how he feels, Sandoval shuts it down because *he* is entitled to his feelings. 🙄


haleighr

Why do I feel like Sandoval has no problem spotting Schwartz because then he can feel more in control and comfortable telling Schwartz yes/no to things


moekay

I bet LVP keeps that warehouse in business.


Lucille4884

I just don't understand why Brock hasn't visited his kids. He and Scheana have travelled even during the Pandemic.


AbidonDesign

Wow. That’s the most real thing this season.


zbornaks

“I don’t like the attitude you have with her sometimes.” THAT IS HIS WIFE YOU SAGGY BALLSACK.


zbornaks

I’m feeling very Jax levels of hatred towards Tom Sandy and I don’t ***want*** to. I’m gonna need him to take his attitude down 100 notches.


wiresandwaves

Wow, surprised but appreciative that Katie is sharing this.


JoeyCrack91

“I’ve never experienced so much humiliation” - Tom Sandoval referring to Katie being mean to him. Oh boy, just wait until you watch this episode…


ShitHouseMcTits

Domestic violence. Fucking yikes.


popcorn4444

Tom has also been fighting for his name choice only and everything else he wants!


flouristy

Lala is SUCH a mean girl for weaponizing Raquel's anxiety with that dumbass speech thing


wiscoand

Ariana's uncomfortable hair fix would be me sitting there


AbidonDesign

Am I Naive as Raquel or doing “shrooms” normal?


reignrained

Microdosing is gaining popularity


otter-99

Brock moved from Australia to LA to get famous…let’s just say it. He wasnt moving for a ‘better life’


Stolenmarblerye

Schwartz's sperm is as slow as he is


haleighr

I’d be raising hell if I watched my dead beat baby daddy have a whole other baby on a reality show obviously supporting them when he isn’t doing his part in child support for our kids


soph_lurk_2018

He’s not supporting Summer. He’s living off of Scheena until the show stops and/or she runs out of money.


ilovecorgipuppies

Tom claiming he was traumatized at the book signing is gross. He doesn’t have a clue what real trauma is.


aintnuthnbutahoundog

As someone who tried and gave up on getting a restraining order, it really is not that easy to just like..slap someone with one out of vengeance..yikes


Snarkandshade

If you have a domestic violence charge against you, you’re going to lie about it. Abusive men usually do.


GeorgeCuntstanza

Sandoval looks like Robin Williams in The Birdcage in that outfit.


reignrained

Damn Ariana is so uncomfy sitting here hahaha


miz_k

Oh Katie. No.


josiegrossie29

This outfit lol


itsalwayssunnyinphx

Lord. Tom is not mentally ready for a kid. Got a lot of work to do.


shsbxu1738

Proud of Katie for sharing her story. I know she’ll inevitably get a lot of shit, but we need to hear those stories.


october505

Danny Pellegrino said this week’s episode is the best one of the season so far and I trust him. Also it’s my birthday today so please everyone drink and smoke in my honor (if you partake)! My pregnant ass is having takeout Chinese and ice cream cake.


veronicagetsmehigh

Happy birthday I’m having weeeed and a lot of Halloween candy!!!


meesh987

I don’t like Lala and never feel like she’s genuine but I actually feel like she is truly being genuine in this conversation with Scheana. And Scheana lives in some make believe world where everything is all sunshine and butterflies. She believes and hears what she wants to hear, and lives in a world where everything is perfect when the reality is it’s not.


reignrained

Sandoval you’re putting way too much strain on your neck pumping those weights. They’re too heavy for you


haleighr

My dad worked in turkey, India, Russia, Africa for monthhhssss on end and we lived in Canada when he was back in the states (both dad and step dad are oil and gas) and guess what? My dad and my step dad both talked to their kids regularly and saw us/them on holidays


aintnuthnbutahoundog

Did Charlie stop filming?


tooyoungtobesotired

Just turned off the World Series (I have varied interests) and injected myself with my fertility drugs. I am ready for this episode now.


lilcheetah2

Lala’s post pregnancy stomach can kiss my ass


233Ivy

Did she do all that just to make one cookie?!


veronicagetsmehigh

It was a big cookie!


recollectionsmayvary

Did Katie just decide this episode is when we fall in love with her? Cos this massive cookie is speaking to me.


amandaofthehawk

I’m Katie vibing at home alone with a big cookie


lilcheetah2

Katie we are all here for you in this moment but…that’s an interesting outfit


hrbdyfc

no, scheana, you know what he told you


lindseybobinsey

Domestic violence....arrears of support....wow what a great man to have a child with. - Scheana


advocatecarey

JFC…enough with pickle ball! No one gives any fucks about making pickle ball happen.
