Vanderpump Rules Season 3 Recap: Tears Over Miami

“Vanderpump Rules” Season 3 Episode 11 “Tears Over Miami” aired last Jan. 12, 2015 at 9:00 p.m. on Bravo. The episode kicks off with Ariana and Scheana complaining about their hangover. Read on to learn more about this episode.

While the best girl buddies are complaining about drinking too much last night, Kristen and James are busy gossiping about Tom and Jax’s argument.


Meanwhile, Tom, Schwartz and Jax are lying on the bed. They can still remember their wild party last night. Tom mocks Jax how does it feel to wake up not finding Vail beside him.

Talking about Vail, she tells Katie that Jax is a “lovable idiot.” What Katie does not know is Schwartz was ecstatic last night to party with his girlfriend. He thinks that if it can be a reason to have Stassi away from them, he does not care. He believes it can be good for Katie. However, Katie is busy contacting Stassi to no avail. She is “searching for a sign of life” on her phone.

While Katie is getting emotional in Miami, Stassi is complaining that she is sweating because of the broken AC. Kristina just laughs at her. Stassi says that she “almost” chose to be in Miami until her thoughts shifted to Scheana. She takes back what she said and declares that she would rather sweat like a pig inside her apartment. After criticizing Scheana’s party attitude, Stassi is disappointed that Katie chose to be in Miami. She thought they were in the same “team.”

Back to Miami, Tom meets John. He is Tom and Jax’s longtime friend and talent scout. However, he had a fall out with Jax because of some reasons.

In the bachelorette suite, Scheana and her friends are busy playing wedding games. Kristen arrives after 40 minutes. She feels no shame being late as she goes around the room confidently while making harsh side comments about Ariana. While preparing to carve the cucumbers, she jokes about her knife.

Everybody gets out of the hotel to have a pool party. Vail asks Jax how long was his longest pause from sex. Jax answers six days. With that, Vail is finally turned off and is 100 percent sure that she will just stay with flirting.

Meanwhile, Lisa Vanderpump spots Stassi visiting Sur. Stassi starts to talk happily about her violations while working there. She insists Lisa to go with her in the restroom to show the little wine bottles she was hiding. Lisa finds it sad that Stassi is proud of her mistakes.

Tom and Ariana have not arrived yet in the restaurant. Kristen talks nasty things about Ariana in front of everyone. Katie is appalled.

In the cab going to the restaurant, Ariana bursts into tears as she tells Tom that she tried everything to let go of her anger to avoid conflicts during Scheana’s party. Tom tells her that he has a plan to stop Kristen’s attacks.


After Tom and Ariana arrived in the restaurant, Jax’s former name, Jason, is revealed. Tom knows about the rumors between John and Jax. John arrives and greets everyone, especially his two talents. Jax confidently says that he stayed in John’s room long ago. That is surprise number one for Vail. When John said that Jax’s nude photo is still in his house, Vail is horrified and concludes that Jax is an “attention whore.”

While the Miami people are making fun of Jax’s homosexual tendencies, Lisa and Stassi argue about burning bridges. Lisa finds it unfair for Stassi to let go of Katie. She thinks Katie is the most “loyal” and “supportive” friend of Stassi. She tells Stassi that Katie’s reason must be her boyfriend.

Ariana and Tom are busy kissing each other on the table. James can feel Kristen being uncomfortable. He goes with her to the restroom. Katie admires Ariana’s bravery in controlling her anger just to please her best friend Scheana. At the other side of the table, Vail wants to know more about Jax’s past by interrogating John. However, the three guys believe in the “bro code.”

In the club, John tells Jax that he still loves him.

“You made my life,” Jax tells John.

Katie goes out of the club to call Stassi, who is still talking to Lisa. After Lisa insisted that Stassi must answer the phone, Katie is trying her best to strike a conversation. Suddenly, Stassi hangs up. Katie starts to cry and returns inside the club.

Stassi is so mad at Lisa that she walks out. Lisa thinks Stassi is looking for “followers,” not friends. She believes Stassi walked out because she has no argument.

Vail sees Katie crying. She tells her that she made the right choice. Katie wants to have a good relationship with her future husband’s friends. While others are having an emotional night, the bride-to-be is busy achieving the challenges in the checklist.

Tom invites Kristen to talk outside. Kristen honestly tells Tom that she hates Ariana. She does not want to see them together. Tom tells her that he wants her to be happy.

“I want to be happy with you,” Kristen says.

Tom starts to cry out loud. They hold each other’s hands tightly. He tells Kristen that he thought they would be together forever. The ex-lovers hug it out. Tom makes her promise to stop hurting Ariana because he will also be courteous with James. He thinks it is a successful closure and hopes that it will help them move on. However, Kristen still thinks about breaking Tom and Ariana apart.

By morning, everybody packs up to finally go home. Scheana is ecstatic about the whole trip. She thinks she is the “common ground” of enemies within her circle. While the future bride is happy, Kristen has morbid thoughts about Ariana in a bloody accident.

What does Kristen have under her sleeve? Catch the next episode on Jan. 19, 2015.
