Jax's Arrest
Lucky he's got a good mug! During a season four trip to Hawaii with his girlfriend Brittany Cartwright and fellow cast members, Jax Taylor was arrested for stealing a pair of designer sunnies worth over $400! His excuse?
"I had too many Mai Tais."
Yep, he blamed it on the booze!
Tom kicks Stassi out of TomTom
Stassi Schroeder was excited to have her book launch at Tom Sandoval and Tom Schwartz's new bar TomTom in the current eighth season.
But after Stassi called Tom a "selfish, egotistical piece of s**t" in front of patrons, he banned her!
"If she comes in, she's getting thrown out immediately," he said. Ouch!

Pasta Gate
In season six, things kicked off between Lala Kent and James Kennedy after the pair argued over a plate of pasta.
James repeatedly told her, "It's not about the pasta!"
We then realised James had a major crush on Lala and was just furious she was getting serious with her boyfriend Randall Emmett!
Stassi slaps Kristen
This was the slap that was heard around the world. Yep, it was that epic! So what went down in this season two showdown?
After finding out Kristen Doute lied about having sex and cheating with her on-again off-again boyfriend Jax, Stassi launched across the table and backhanded her friend right in front of a full restaurant and all their friends.
Talk about embarrassing!

Jax's nose job
In season three, the former model said he was only going under the knife to fix his deviated septum, but after the bandages came off, it was clear that this cosmetic tweak had actually completely changed his beak!
Who nose? Maybe he thought we wouldn't notice...
Stassi's intense birthday meltdowns
If it's Stassi's birthday, you can guarantee – every season – she'll lose her mind during celebrations.
From slamming her phone on the ground after a fight with boyfriend Beau Clark or storming out of her own party, this girl loses it spectacularly every single year.
Talk about cray!

The ring on a string
Katie Maloney thought Tom Schwarz was proposing at Scheana Shay's wedding in season three, but he gave her a ring on a string!
Yep, it was a band on a necklace, not a forever sparkler.
"Don't settle for second best," advised Lisa Vanderpump.
Wise words!
Tom slaps Jax
After finding out Jax slept with his girlfriend Kristen in season two, Tom Sandoval couldn't contain his anger and got into some ugly biffo with Jax.
"You don't ever feel anything, but do you feel this!?" Tom asked before jumping in to attack.
We hope Jax had some ice for that burn (and those bruises)!
