Tom Sandoval and the Vanderpump Rules cast are in the thick of things on the second season of their hit Bravo show. From break-ups to make-ups to feuds at work, the cast always keeps fans on their toes both on the show and off.

In his latest blog, Tom is weighing in on all of the latest drama and with the cast and updating fans on his relationship with longtime girlfriend, Kristen Doute.

"It REALLY gets to me to hear Stassi tell Jax he's not 'allowed' to model with girls anymore! Let's just set the record straight by saying that booking a little GQ spread with a pornstar with a couple other shoots through Jax's agency, doesn't make you a model Stassi!" Tom writes in his December 1st Bravo blog. "Stassi has never traveled to different cities going on five castings a day and booking $2-5k a day shoots. Through our 12 plus years of modeling, Jax and I have done numerous fashion spreads, editorials, campaigns, brochures, billboards, video games (Jax), book covers, fit modeling, showroom work, magazine covers, catalogs, product packaging, with fashion weeks after fashion weeks. . .At one time I personally had nine agencies in just the US alone! Stassi is more of a couple test shoots from Model Mayhem and a club runway show for a buddy's t-shirt line. . .So don't sit there and say 'I used to model, and I know what it's like.' Stassi doesn't have a f---in' clue in the world what it's like to be a working model! If she did, then Stassi would know if Jax called up his booker and said 'Hey sorry, but I can't do any photoshoots with chicks anymore,' his agent would prob laugh and say, 'OK well, come by the agency, pick up your comp cards, and have a nice life.'"

Stassi certainly had some outrageous rules for Jax during their courtship, and from the outside looking in, Jax seemed to be totally on board with them, despite her modeling rule coming in between him and what could have been great things for his career. It was an odd relationship and ones that Jax is better off far from.

Last week, fans watched as Ariana Madix, a friend of Scheana Marie, joined the staff at SUR. Immediately, rumors began surfacing that she and Tom had hooked up. However, he insists that their relationship was and always will be strictly platonic.

"Ariana overall is pretty rad chick, a good friend, and super chill, unlike most all the other girls at SUR," he explains. "I was definitely not cool with seeing her and Scheana talk s--- about Kristen! Kristen has given her a hard time in the past so I'm sure she was just venting."

As for his friendship with Jax, things appear to be strained -- especially after seeing the latest episode of the show. "Watching Jax find such humor in single-handedly trying to sabotage my relationship just to get some attention from Stassi left me speechless," Tom wrote. "Why am I such a good friends with a guy who continues to f--- me over? I just don't know what I ever did to him except always have his back, give him a place to stay, pick him up when he's down, and try and fight the other guy Stassi was with."

In better news, Tom says his relationship with Kristen is going fabulously, despite the hardships they went through earlier in the year. "I have to say, with so much happiness, things with Kristen are just going so great!" he gushes. "In Arrowhead, it's like the clouds parted and the sun really started to shine right down on our relationship -- and let me tell you, I am soaking it in!"
