What Happened in Vanderpump Rules Season 2: Full Recap

Jax has Stassi’s name tattooed on himself early in Vanderpump Rules season two to win her back, and that’s when the cheating triangles started. Tom confessed to Kristen that he had had an affair with Ariana, a new bartender at SUR, and Kristen came up with cruel ways to help him atone for it. Katie also informs Stassi of a rumor that Kristen and Jax shared a bed, which she then investigates all summer. The first (but undoubtedly not the last) wedding saga on Vanderpump Rules starts when Scheana proposes to Mike Shay.
