Last month, Vanderpump Rules star Jax Taylor got engaged to Brittany Cartwright.
Fans of the series were more than a little surprised, not because Jax has never really seemed like the marrying kind (although there is that), but because he’s seemed to go out of his way to make Brittany’s life markedly worse throughout their time together.
To be fair, Brittany might have had a better idea of what was in store if she had bothered to watch her fiancé’s show even once before moving to LA to be with him, but after seeing her hometown on her and Jax’s short-lived spinoff, we really can’t blame Cartwright for taking the first opportunity to bolt.
And besides, even Jax’s worse critics couldn’t have predicted he would behave this badly.
At first, it was just the drunken tirades and indiscriminate lying we’ve come to expect from West Hollywood’s most unrepentant sociopath.
But wasn’t long before the cheating began.
Yes, not only did Jax sleep with Faith Stowers behind Brittany’s back, he proceeded to gaslight her into oblivion long after a mountain of evidence had made it abundantly clear that Taylor definitely cheated.
But surely now that he and Brittany are engaged, Jax will make more of an effort to keeping it in his pants, right? Wellllll …
Apparently, this past Friday, Brittany was out of town, and Jax took the opportunity to go out partying with some of his male friends.
But in news that won’t shock anyone who’s ever watched like 5 seconds of Vanderpump, it wasn’t very long before some females got involved in the boys’ night. Allegedly.
An LA-based fan of the show tweeted and deleted accusations that she and Jax got it on in a bathroom stall.
Ya know, as one does when one is pushing 40 and newly engaged to be married.
Jax opted not to comment on the allegations, and instead went off on a random fan who brought the rumor to his attention, because uncontrollable rage is a delightful quality in a future husband.
Here’s a bit of that exchange:
“It’s all good we need haters too.. people only talk shit when they are jealous or want to be a hater, remember that haters make the world go round. Have a good one!!” Jax tweeted.
“.@talktrashy2me not being mean but we are a successful show that’s been on for many many years, people who still show hate are sad, and have to realize we aren’t going anywhere, so you might as well join The vanderpump party!!”
“This means you are a middle aged person who is not happy with the way life turned out, they never made a jump to anything bigger and now regretting it, then they see people on tv that they actually “like” mind you, you don’t troll people you hate, you ain’t foolin anyone.”
Wow. Sounds like Mr. Taylor has been getting into the pasta again.
Look, if the accusations are baseless, we can understand his frustration, but there’s still no need for Jax to go off on a fan who was merely trying to make sure he was aware of what folks are saying out there.
Oh, and dude, don’t jinx yourself by saying you’re not going anywhere.
Very few reality shows remain on the air past ten years without major cast retooling, and it’s very rare that the stars from such franchises retain anything resembling real fame after their series come to an end.
Snooki is the exception, not the rule, ya dig?
