Jax Taylor FLIPS OUT on Lisa Vanderpump: Was He on Drugs?

When Jax Taylor appears on Andy Cohen’s Watch What Happens Live, it’s not uncommon for callers to inquire as to the quantity of cocaine that disappears up the Vanderpump Rules star’s surgically-enhanced nose on a nightly basis.

Based on what we saw last night, the answer cannot be given in terms of grams or even ounces, and instead must be envisioned as a relief map of Tony Montana’s desktop.

What we’re saying is, Jax appears to have been halfway to the moon on Colombian marching powder during his latest tirade at SUR, and the resulting sh-tshow could cost him both his fake job (bartender) and his real one (reality TV powder keg).

We joke about Jax’s consumption of booger sugar (kind of), but it’s not hard to see how he ended up so wound up during the climactic of last night’s episode.

Basically, a series of escalating conflicts had Jax’s fight or flight brain in high gear, and we doubt even Kelsey’s magic reiki rocks could have calmed him down.

First, he confronted the random SUR waiter who we’ll call Zoolander about his alleged crush on Brittany Cartwright.

Shortly thereafter, he locked horns with Scheana Marie, who tried to fix Zoolander up with Brittany.

After that, Jax got into it with James Kennedy over allegations that James hooked up with Kristen during the recent group trip to Mexico.

Unfortunately for Mr. Taylor the situation came to a head just as Lisa Vanderpump walked into SUR to check otu “See You Next Tuesday” for herself.

Lisa tried to calm Jax down, and well … it didn’t go smoothly:

“F–k you all,” shouted a wild-eyed Jax in the middle of his place of employment.

“F–k you all, you f–king lying sacks of goddamn s–t. F–k you all,” he continued, making a solid case for hinself as the most unhinged individual in the realty television landscape.

Astonishingly, he then made the baffling decision to flip Lisa off, which predicably led to him getting expelled from the restaurant.

“Of all the places that you choose to have a meltdown, why choose the place that has paid your bills for the last seven years?”

“Of hundreds of employees, I’ve never had anybody speak to me the way you speak to me,” Lisa continued after Jax refused to leave.

“You’re arrogant and you’re obnoxious. You’re acting like a little f–king baby.” 

At that point, Taylor broke the fourth wall and removed his microphone, leading some viewers to theorize that he’d quit the show, especially since all of this comes on the heels of rumors about Jax breaking up with Brittany and movin to Florida.

Needless to say, #PumpRules Twitter went wild.

“It only took 6 years, but we, the fans of #PumpRules, finally get what we deserve: a full blown Jax coke tantrum,” wrote one fan.

“Could you imagine being at SUR as Jax had that ungodly meltdown? Bc that would be a dream come true for me,” joked another.

“Next season. Jax: the intervention,” a third remarked.

But the tweet of the night belongs to Ira Madison III wh threw it all the way back to James’ “it’s not about the pasta” comments from earlier this season:

“How much pasta did Jax have tonight?”

We think it’s time for Mr. Taylor to put down the grated parm and stick to oregano.

James Kennedy: Should He Be Fired From Vanderpump Rules For Abusive Behavior?

The current season of Vanderpump Rules certainly hasn’t been light on drama.

Jax cheating on Brittany; the Toms attempting to make a name for themselves in the restaurant business; Stassi transforming into a tequila-and-Adderall-fueled zombie at her own birthday party

It’s all enough to make you wonder why producers felt the need to bring back the show’s most justly-reviled cast member, James Kennedy.

Aside from a tenuous friendship with Lala Kent, James has no real connection to the rest of the cast.

It would’ve been the perfect time for show to cut ties with Kennedy, but in order to ensure things remained lively for viewers in the sixth season (a time when many reality series begin to show their age), producers welcomed James and his abusive tendencies back.

And the decision points to what will likely become a growing problem for reality TV showrunners in the #MeToo era.

In an age when some of TV’s best known villains aren’t reading from scripts, the behavior of people like James puts their bosses in a tough spot:

At what point does the obligation to maintain a safe work environment supersede the desire to deliver compelling television?

In his two seasons as a full-time cast member on Vanderpump we’ve seen James degrade multiple women as “sluts” and “whores,” shove his hand in the face of a former sex partner whom he had recently derided (in Trump-like fashion) for being too ugly to sleep with, and spit at an ex-girlfriend who was imploring him to leave her home.

Not exactly lovable anti-hero stuff.

In recent weeks, James has turned his attention to “friend” and frequent victim Lala Kennedy, who seems to have finally become fed up with his erratic outbursts and unwelcome sexual advances.

On last night’s episode of Vanderpump, James groped Lala in front of his girlfriend before turning on her and subjecting her to a drunken tirade.

All of this comes on the heels of Kennedy repeatedly slut-shaming Kent and accusing her of sleeping with an older man for money.

After the show aired, Kent appeared on Andy Cohen’s Watch What Happens Live, where she responded to a question what she gains from her friendship with James in a way that offers hope that she’s finally cut him loose.

“You know what, my love? That is a great question, and I have just recently realized [he adds] nothing,” Kent said.

“So, that’s what it is.”

The remark came after a preview of next week’s Vanderpump, in which James yet again becomes enraged over Kent’s relationship with Randall Emmett.

“If I had been that billionaire successful DJ, she would have definitely come along for the ride. Her man was the guy that had all of that, so she went running along with him. Do I think that could have happened? Absolutely,” Kennedy said in the clip.

“You know Ray J hit it first before [Kanye West], right?” James added, likening himself to Kanye.

James’ behavior comes smack in the middle of what has already been a deeply problematic season for the show.

Allegations of racism against Stassi Schroeder have led to several deeply uncomfortable moments and even some questions about the show’s future.

At this point, it seems the best thing Bravo can do to preserve its reputation as one of the more woke networks on television is to permanently sever its relationship with James Kennedy.

James Kennedy: Gay Affair Confirmed By Vanderpump Co-Star?

Earlier this week, we reported on rumors that James Kennedy is being urged to come out of the closet by co-stars who are suddenly deeply concerned with his ability to live his best life.

Kennedy’s Vanderpump castmates seem to believe that he’s engaging in an affair with his roommate, Logan Noh.

James has been dating Raquel Leviss for over a year, and thus has been quite keen to deny reports that he’s sleeping with anyone on the down-low.

Unfortunately for him, Kristen Doute and company fancy themselves the WeHo equivalent of th Scooby Gang, except instead of haunted amuesment parks, they investigate other people’s sex lives.

For reasons that remain unclear, Kristen has been as dogged as Robert Mueller in her pursuit of the truth about James’ wang.

And she may have just gotten the break in her case that she’s been waiting for.

You may remember Faith Stowers for sleeping with Jax Taylor and then lying and claiming that she was pregnant with his baby at the beginning of this season.

Vanderpump thrives on drama, but Faith went a little too hard for an ancillary character, and now it appears she won’t be returning to the show.

But that doesn’t mean she’s done stirring up sh-t:

“I’m not going to not say he’s gay,” Stowers said of James in a recent interview with Radar Online. 

“I think he has one foot in the closet, and one foot out.”

Faith says that as James’ former bestie, she had a front-row seat to the clandestine affair between the two roommates:

“I hung out with him every day. We were always together. We would go out and get wild,” Stowers says.

“Raquel would come with James, and Logan would be there. Logan is a very likable, lovable guy. But when it comes to James, he is very territorial. Logan is in love with James.”

Faith claims there’s no doubt that James and Logan are more than just friends, and she insiste Kennedy is keeping up appearances for the sake of his girlfriend:

“James wants to make Raquel feel comfortable, but he loves Logan,” she claims.

“They’re so weird, fighting, cussing each other out, and then I might look over and see Logan kissing James,” she claimed. “It is so intense!”

Just in case there was any lingering doubt, Faith adds that she once dropped by James’ and Logan’s place and made note of an unmistakable post-coital vibe:

“The place was super sweaty and had a post-sex smell,” she said.

“Logan’s hair was damp, he was sweaty. And James was in bed.”

We’re torn on this one.

On the one hand, James Kennedy is a terrible human being.

But on the other hand, we hate to see his private affairs made public like this, particularly when he’s being called out by a woman who’s already established herself as a liar.

It’s times like this we’re forced to remind ourselves that everyone on this show is an unrepentant sociopath and this group of “friends” fully deserve one another.

Watch Vanderpump Rules online to remind yourself of how just ugly things can get at SUR.

Vanderpump Rules Cast: Urging James Kennedy to Come Out of the Closet?

On last night’s episode of Vanderpump Rules, James Kennedy drunkenly confessed to being in love with his gay best friend, Logan, whom he then kissed.

It came in at about 47,000 on the list of most eyebrow-raising behaviors James has engaged in this season, but for some reason, that’s the move his cast mates are fixated upon.

The previews for next week’s episode showed Kristen Doute–James’ only real competition for the title of most sociopathic Vanderpump cast member–insisting that Kennedy come out of the closet, because … well, we’re sure she’ll eventually come up with some reason why his sexuality is any of her business.

Just give her some time.

Kristen wasn’t alone in being far more concerned with the possibility that James is bisexual than with the fact that he’s likely a bipolar alcoholic with abusive tendencies.

“Watching James and Logan interact for like two seconds, I don’t know what’s going on,” Jax Taylor remarked during Monday’s episode.

“I just don’t know who’s the top and who’s the bottom.”

And apparently, James’ castmates aren’t just playing it up for the cameras.

In fact, it seems the only one who isn’t concerned is Kennedy’s girlfriend, Raquel Leviss.

One insider tells Radar Online that James’ “friends” have been relentlessly pressuring him to come out:

“They told him that he really needs to start living as his true self,” said the source.

“They think James needs to come out.”

The situation is interesting, but not for the reason the Kristen and company think:

1. The questioning of James’ sexuality and the campaign to forcibly draw him out of the closet comes on the heels of an episode in which the cast repeatedly boasted about their concern for social justice and their cred within the LGBT community. 

Side-eyeing your straight friend’s friendship with his gay roommate isn’t exactly the height of wokeness.

2. In that same episode, James got daytime sh-tfaced and heaped verbal abuse on a woman in a public setting.

No one seemed to have a problem with that, but kissing his male friend on the cheek?! Mon dieu!

Look, horrendous behavior from the Vanderpump cast is nothing new, but coming on the heels of their annual pride parade episode, this buffoonery is especially nauseating.

Watch Vanderpump Rules online to remind yourself of the extent to which these people need to grow up.

Robert Valletta Blames Vanderpump Rules Cast For Scheana Marie Breakup: They’re Savages!

Long before Vanderpump Rules Season 6 debuted at the beginning of December, word got out that Scheana Marie and Robert Valletta had broken up after just a few weeks of dating.

It’s a strange situation for viewers, who are just now getting their first real insights into Rob’s character and personality, despite the fact that he has no real ties to the cast any longer.

Of course, it sounds like if Scheana gets her way, he’ll soon be welcomed back into the fold.

Yes, as you may have noticed if you caught Monday night’s episode, Scheana–to borrow a phrase coined by Tom Sandoval–is a bit “Rob-sessed.”

At one point, she openly discussed her desire to marry Valletta, even though they’d only been formally dating for a few months and she was still married to Mike Shay at the time.

But the clearest indication that Scheana would lay down in traffic if Rob asked her to may have been her willingness to ignore the many obvious signs that Valletta was cheating.

In the past, Scheana has harshly criticized friends of hers for being naive about their boyfriends’ infidelity, but she was hearing none of it when several members of her inner circle tried to convince her that Rob had been unfaithful.

Even now that their relationship is over, both parties claim they called it off for reasons that have nothing to do with infidelity.

Scheana appeared on Watch What Happens Live Monday night, and Rob called in, seemingly for no other reason than to blame her friends for their breakup:

“The truth is, it’s really hard in her circle of friends,” Rob said. 

“Individually, when they’re by themselves, they’re really great people, but you put that group of people together and they’re savages. They come after you, and it’s really hard to have a successful relationship with those people coming and attacking you from all sides.”

“Friends say Rob is using her,” an insider claimed.

Here’s the thing:

Despite the fact that he’s the sort of unrepentant d-bag who toasts to “falling in love with something new every day,” we’re actually with Rob on this one.

Scheana’s friends are a pack of sociopaths, and we can’t imagine any healthy relationship existing in that environment.

But that doesn’t mean Rob isn’t shady as hell.

These days, Valletta and Scheana are friends with benefits, and those who know the couple best say he’s only maintaining ties with the SUR girl in order to help his career.

“Every single time Rob is in town, she invites him to an event with her,” one insider tells Radar Online.

“They know that they are much more in-demand together than apart.”

Sadly, it seems Scheana doesn’t see the situation for what it is, and in fact still looks at Rob as husband material.

“Scheana would marry him in a heartbeat if he wanted to marry her,” the source claims.

“But he’s told her that he does not want to be tied down, and she keeps telling him that he will regret it.”

Scheana, you’re helping this guy’s career and having no strings attached sex with him, all the while assuring him that you’ll happily settle down and get married if he ever decides he wants to.

Believe us when we say you’re not giving him a ton of incentive to hurry up and settle down.

Jax Taylor: Father of Vanderpump Rules Star Dies Following Battle With Cancer

Sad news out of the world of reality television today, as Ronald Cauchi, the father of Vanderpump Rules star Jax Taylor, has passed away following a battle with cancer.

Taylor broke the news to his social media followers with a heartfelt message last night:

“My heart is broken, I lost my best friend and the best man I have ever met last night, I love you so much dad I can’t even breathe anymore, only person not letting me fall right now is my amazing girlfriend. I love you dad,” Jax tweeted.

Taylor first revealed that his father was battling stage IV cancer earlier this month:

“Yes cancer f–king sucks, watching my father go through this is killing me.. prayers to all the families that have to deal with this awful disease,” he tweeted on December 4.

“I don’t wish this disease on my worst enemy. #f–kcancer watching your loved ones battle while I sit and watch is the worst feeling.”

In the weeks that followed, Taylor opened up about his father’s illness in a number of candid interviews:

“It’s rough, because my dad, he’s like my idol,” Jax told The Daily Dish on December 11.

“My dad was always the person who never got sick, I always looked up to him. … It’s hurt our family. It’s hurt everybody. It just really sucks. During the holidays, it doesn’t make it any easier.”

Shortly thereafter, he made similar comments in an interview with Us Weekly:

“What do I want for Christmas this year? I want cancer to be out of my father’s body,” he told the magazine.

“If I can ask for anything right now, I just want my dad to be better.”

Jax’s co-stars have publicly offered their condolences and words of support on social media:

“Let’s flood @mrjaxtaylor with love and compassion. So sorry for your loss my friend,” tweeted VPR fan favorite Tom Schwartz.

“I’m so sorry brother,” remarked SUR restaurant manager Peter Madrigal.

Jax’s famous boss, Lisa Vanderpump, has urged fans to allow Jax his privacy and give his family time to heal.

Our thoughts go out to the Taylor family during this difficult time.

Vanderpump Rules Stars Strip Down for PETA!

The only thing better than getting naked is getting naked for a good cause. Or maybe the only thing better than supporting a good cause is supporting it while you're naked?

Either way, three of Vanderpump Rules' hottest stars are teaming up and stripping down to protest against orcas being held in marine circuses like SeaWorld.

And, as you'll see in the video below, they're wearing some very interesting body paint. …

Peta slash vanderpump rules 2

For those of you hoping to see Lisa Vanderpump wearing nothing but body paint … we've very sorry to disappoint.

But we hope that Ariana Madix, Lala Kent, and Scheana Shay won't leave you disappointed.

Nudity isn't inherently sexual, but it sure does grab people's attention. 

Just look at how good Scheana Marie Shay looks in body paint:

If your message is important, you might want to make sure that you hook people's attention.

Controversial animal rights organization PETA, which has been slammed in the past by political opponents but also by big-time proponents of animal rights who accuse PETA of hypocrisy and of misguided practices, uses nudity a lot.

PETA even made some weird bestiality posters in a recent push to promote veganism.

Sometimes the message gets lost.

But when it comes to this particular campaign, it's not difficult to agree with PETA or these three Vanderpump Rules beauties.

Peta slash vanderpump rules 3

The video below isn't just skin and body paint (though those are also factors). It's also 

Ariana Madix makes sure that their goals are clear, saying:

"Today we're here with PETA shooting a campaign to release the orcas into seaside sanctuaries from SeaWorld."

Her costar, Scheana, adds some grim information about the prospects for captive orcas:

"Orcas have died at SeaWorld and the fact that none of them died from old age is just insane."

That is so, so sad.

Peta slash vanderpump rules 5

Lala Kent shares how the release of captive orcas from marine circuses like SeaWorld is important to her.

"When I saw the documentary, Blackfish, it literally changed my entire life."

That documentary did wonders for raising awareness.

"I found my passion and I found my voice and I will not stop until any place like SeaWorld is completely shut down."

That's a powerful personal cause to have.

"Places like SeaWorld or the Miami Sea Aquarium … it is the equivalent to me of taking a baby and putting them in a bathtub and having them grow up there."

That might be a bit of a stretch — maybe forcing a baby to grow up within a single room, also unforgivably awful, would be a better analogy.

(We're not blaming Lala for that — PETA has compared meat-eating to rape in the past; being inflammatory is arguably part of their brand)

Peta slash vanderpump rules 4

Lala continues:

"When you take a mammal of that size and put it into basically a swimming pool, you can't expect it to do anything but self-destruct."

Sadly, we know of countless instances of orcas doing just that. They lose their minds.

Ariana provides her own thoughts:

"Orcas are very social animals and they're very intelligent animals."

That's very true.

Peta slash vanderpump rules 6

"Each pod has their own language. So you have orcas from all different pods who are living in these bathtubs."

Conflict in that situation seems inevitable. And so does misery.

"They're fighting with each other because they have no way of communicating, they're confused, and they're full of anguish, and it shouldn't be that way."

As far as PETA advertisements go, this one is solid. It's an idea that we can all get behind.

Shout-out to these three Vanderpump Rules stars for using their platform for good!

Vanderpump Rules Season 6 Trailer: Is Scheana Being Cheated On?!

Well, fall is here again, which means it's time to find out exactly how the men and women of SUR effed their lives up over the summer.

Yes, another season of Vanderpump Rules is upon us, and things are a little different this year.

For one thing, Season 6 doesn't debut until December (boo).

But on the bright side, Lala Kent will return after abruptly quitting the show last season (yay).

As for your favorite couples–we're afraid we have some bad news.

With the exception of Tom Sandoval and Ariana Madix, it seems just about anyone everyone on the cast has endured a breakup since last season.

The dissolution of Jax Taylor and Brittany Cartwright, of course, was chronicled in the little-watched Jax and Brittany Take Kentucky.

(Count your blessings if you skipped that ill-conceived slog.)

The rest of the splits, however, will apparently be documented on VPR.

The trailer focuses primarily on the Scheana Marie-Robert Valletta breakup what we learned about last week.

One scene explains the split by showing Lala inform Scheana that Robert cheated on her.

A bit ironic, perhaps, given that Lala walked away from the show last year due to scrutiny of her love life, but whatever.

As long as there's drama we're happy … and it certainly looks like this season delivers.

Watch Vanderpump Rules online to get caught up in time for Season 6, and check out the full trailer below:

Lala Kent: Returning to Vanderpump Rules!

We’re just weeks away from the premiere of Vanderpump Rules Season 6, and it seems fans can expect plenty of drama when the SUR crew makes its long-awaited return.

Relationship changes have dominated the off-season with non-stop bad news about several established couples.

In August, Stassi Schroeder revealed that she’d been dumped by Patrick Meagher on what was supposed to be the former couple’s fourth anniversary.

Shortly thereafter, news that Tom Schwartz and Katie Maloney were headed for divorce began to circulate on social media.

(The couple has yet to confirm that they’ve called it quits, and it seems they’ve recently decided to “keep up appearances” on social media.)

Last week, we learned that Scheana Marie and Robert Valletta have split up after less than a year together.

And just yesterday, it was confirmed that Jax Taylor and Brittany Cartwright have called it quits.

But it’s not all bad news and breakups in West Hollywood.

In a recent interview with Too Fab, Vanderpump stars Tom Sandoval, Ariana Madix and their pet sh-t weasel, James Kennedy, confirmed some big-but not entirely unexpected news–about the show’s upcoming season:

It seems that after a one-season hiatus, Lala Kent will be returning to the series that made her almost famous.

As you may recall, Lala quit Vanderpump abruptly last season after butting heads with her female castmates.

Of course, triumphant returns aren’t unheard of on VR, as Stassi previously left the show, moved to New York, and was brought back in response to popular demand.

(It seems the forgotten Vail Bloom now has the dubious honor of being the only regular cast member to make a permanent departure from the show.)

“Me and her are a very dynamic duo on the show, obviously,” James said of Lala at a Halloween event sponsored by Maxim last night.

“We like music together, so it’s good to have her back.”

Ariana chimed in with a breakdown of the ways in which life has changed since we last checked in at SUR:

“Dynamics are shifting,” Madix said.

“Things are growing and changing. Things are maybe falling apart, getting put back together. Just when you think that there’s not gonna be any more drama, you think like, ‘Oh, they’ve done it all.’ No, there’s always something else.”

Kennedy also revealed that he’s been re-hired at SUR after being ousted for his boozy behavior last year.

He also hinted at at least one more major surprise for fans this season:

“That’s a secret,” he added, thus begging the question of why he brought it up at all.

“That’s a surprise to the season. We can’t give that out yet. People have been waiting for me. They thought I’d be left in the dirt, but it’s good to be back at SUR. Lisa’s amazing.”

Watch Vanderpump Rules online to get caught up on Season 6 and enjoy more of James shamelessly kissing his boss’ ass.
