One of the main plotlines this season revolves around the fractured friendship between Kristen Doute, Stassi Schroeder, and Katie Maloney-Schwartz. The trio, who were once inseparable, have had a falling out that has played out both on and off camera. The drama started when Kristen slept with Stassi’s on-again, off-again boyfriend, Jax Taylor. Things only escalated from there, with Stassi and Katie accusing Kristen of being a bad friend and not taking responsibility for her actions.

Brock has been accused of cheating on Scheana, and there have been rumours swirling about his past relationships.

  1. Lala’s Strained Relationship with the Group

Lala Kent, who joined the cast in season four, has always been a bit of an outsider in the group. However, this season her relationship with the other cast members has become even more strained.

They’ve been butting heads over the direction of the bar, with Tom Schwartz feeling like he’s being left out of the decision-making process. Additionally, the COVID-19 pandemic has caused some financial strain for the bar, leading to even more tension between the two Toms.
