Jax Taylor claims he was not invested in his role Vanderpump rules for the last three seasons he spent on the show.
During an Instagram Live on Friday, Jax accused the editors of the Bravo Reality series of making him look bad and refusing to show the good parts of his life as he looked back on his time on the show before sharing where He’s standing Lisa Vanderpump and teasing his potential new show.
“The last three years of Vanderpump rulesI was 90 percent checked out. I couldn’t fake it any further. I have no interest in the things they do on this show. I am a father. I am 40 years old. It made no sense to me to pretend I was working at SUR, ”he said on February 12th.
According to Jax, he felt that he “couldn’t win” during his time at Bravo because his editors highlighted his weak moments and ignored all the good things he and he had Brittany Cartwright was going on in her life.
“You did a good job and made me look bad. One year they thought I was gay, the next year I was homophobic … They threw things at me and it hurt my feelings, ”he shared. “Things got better and better [scripted] and they got frustrated with me because I refused to do things. “If you don’t want to go back to SUR … and be who you were.” They didn’t want me to grow up. And when I did that, they didn’t want to film it because it was boring. “
In December 2020, after appearing on the show for eight seasons, Jax confirmed that he would not be included in the series’ potential ninth season. Brittany confirmed the same a short time later.
Jax has only spoken to Lisa “once” since he left, which he said was his own decision.
“[[[[Tom Schwartz]]said the same. He spoke to her once. Everyone I speak to, no one has heard of her. She’s not reaching for anything. I did my part. I tried, “he revealed.
Jax, who was filmed at home with Brittany earlier this month, is hoping to return to television in a new show with some of his former cast mates.
“We can be Housewives next door, showing our new problems, our new problems, taking care of our kids and trying to manage that. It would be cool to do a show [with] me,[[[[Beau Clark]],[[[[Stassi Schroeder]],[[[[Kristen Doute]], Brittany and[[[[Alex Menache]], “he said.” That would be fun, like a transition. And[[[[Randall Emmett]]could be our father figure because he has [two older kids]. ”
“We got a lot of feedback on this show idea and it was really, really good,” added Jax.
While Jax has kept in touch with some of his ex-co-stars, he said Friday that he was still estranged from his former best friend Tom Sandoval and his girlfriend, Ariana Madix, but wishes them all the best.
“I haven’t spoken to [Tom and Ariana] in a year. I hope you are doing well. I wish you all the best, ”he said.
