Kristen and Tom dated for years before splitting up. And as we saw on the show's Season 2 Reunion, Tom is now dating SUR co-worker Ariana Madix, while Kristen has been hooking up with much-younger SUR busser James, whom Tom used to feel close to.
In an interview with OK! Magazine earlier this week, Tom said he thinks James is trying to get on Vanderpump Rules by any means necessary. "I've realized the guy is definitely desperate to be on the show and is willing to pretty much do whatever it takes to do so," Tom says. "First it was being friends with me... and then, lo and behold, I find out that behind my back he's pursuing Kristen and lying to her to try to get her into a relationship or whatever."
However, Kristen doesn't appreciate Tom's take on the situation. "So much shade tom is throwing my way — especially about @jam3sk3nn3dy," Kristen tweeted on February 26. "He should probably focus on his own life & not on mine.. #PumpRules"
We understand that Tom is clearly hurt that Kristen is now dating James, whom Tom once considered to be a friend. However, we agree that Tom should do his best to stop talking about Kristen and James in the media and should try to focus on his own life. After all, Ariana is a total catch!
Do you think Tom is being too harsh on Kristen and James? Or is Tom's criticism warranted?
