Jax Taylor may not SURvive in West Hollywood for much longer.
Or, at least, that was the story he was touting during Monday night’s episode of Vanderpump Rules. In the latest episode, Mr. Taylor revealed to girlfriend Brittany Cartwright that he may be giving up his longtime bartending career to pursue a “public relations, social media, and marketing” opportunity — in TAMPA!
Apparently, a hockey publicist post opened up down in Florida, and the 38-year-old felt he needed to go after his “dream job.” Miz Cartwright was baffled by this admission for a few reasons. For starters, Jax has never really mentioned his sports-related aspiration. Secondly, Brittany moved thousands of miles to build a life with Jax, she isn’t going to just pack up and move again.
During a testimonial, the Kentucky native confessed:
“Jax is acting like this job is a lifelong dream. I’ve never heard about this before.”
In typical Jax fashion, the reality TV star ignored his girlfriend’s concerns, and said there was “really nothing here for [him].” Ouch.
Of course, the job conversation was brought up once again during the group trip to Mexico. While discussing the sudden career change, Taylor said he was “95 percent” sure he would take the gig. When Brittany accused him of ignoring her feelings, Jax got defensive and stormed out of their hotel room.
Later on, the Lisa Vanderpump-formed friend group learned about Jax’s plan and, like Brittany, were skeptical about the job. Jax’s ex Stassi Schroeder even went as far as to accuse her former flame of lying about landing the opportunity. She snarked during a confessional:
“He’s a liar. He won’t tell us what it’s called, the position… What would you have to do besides tweet about hockey?”
As Jax has been known for pathologically lying, we can’t say Stassi’s in the wrong for having doubts. The disagreement between Jax and Brittany eventually became a group issue, as the women LAID INTO Taylor(below).
Ugh. Taylor wasn’t the only one in the hot seat, as Schroeder had to deal with her Jeremy Madix accusations.
In case you missed last week’s episode, the blonde TV personality accused Ariana Madix‘s brother of harassing women at Katie Maloney‘s wedding. She doubled down on her allegations during a new conversation with pal Lala Kent. Although Stassi felt that she was in the right, she was actually frustrated by Ariana’s unwillingness to hear her side of things.
The controversial podcaster noted:
“When I try and communicate with Ariana, it’s very much her way or the highway.”
In regards to her troubling claims against Mr. Madix, she continued:
“We live in this world where all of us women, we get shamed for calling people out. We get shamed for actually bringing attention to it. I will never apologize.”
Isn’t this the same woman who compared the #MeToo movement to a “male witch hunt??” Just sayin’…
Another episode highlight included Scheana Marie admitting that even boyfriend Rob Valletta doesn’t think that she has “processed” her divorce from Mike Shay. Ironically, the split was pretty much finalized as the former Mrs. Shay had this very conversation.
