Cameras or no, the drama between the SUR crews of the past and present never ceases. After their departures from Vanderpump Rules, Jax TaylorAnd Brittany Cartwright’Their relationships with their former costars have changed.
Taylor was an original cast member on Bravo, but Cartwright joined the show during season 4. The couple, who were married in season 8, announced that they would not be participating in season 9.
“The last 8 years on Vanderpump Rules have been some of the most challenging, rewarding and fulfilling years of my life,” the former bartender wrote via Instagram at the time. “Although this is difficult to share, Brittany and I will not be returning for another season of Vanderpump Rules.We are happy to share our new endeavors with you, while we focus on our growing family. @bravotv, @evolutionusa, and our Vanderpump castmates are always close to our hearts. We are so grateful to all of our fans who shared our journey with and supported us throughout. We love you.”
Taylor and Cartwright spent much of the time in the months that followed with their former co-workers, who had babies at the same time as Cruz. Stassi Schroeder Beau Clark, Scheana ShayAnd Lala Kent. Taylor’s relationship with former best friend Tom Sandoval, however, didn’t seem to recover after their season 8 falling out.
“I don’t talk to him as much,” Sandoval told Us WeeklySeptember 2021 “They’re busy, we’re busy.”
Taylor, for his part, referred to their relationship as “cordial” in November 2021. “I mean, I’m 42 years old. I’m not gonna go, ‘I hate you,’ and this and that. I’m like, ‘How are you? How are you doing? It’s great. Great.’ That’s it,” he told Access Hollywood.
Cartwright, for her part, remained tight with the female cast — until she and Taylor skipped Schroeder and Clark’s May 2022 wedding.
“There’s some rifts going on right now. … With me and Stassi, there’s some things going on, which I hate. I love her to death. And I wish we could figure this out,” the Kentucky native said on the “Betches Moms” podcast in June 2022.
While Cartwright claimed that there were “actual reasons” why the twosome weren’t at the nuptials, Schroeder and Clark previously implied that Taylor was lying about his intention to attend.
“Good friends don’t do that. They don’t talk s–t about your wedding behind your back or pretend that they’re coming and give a list of reasons why they’re not coming to other people,” she said on their “The Good, the Bad, and the Baby” podcast in May 2022. “Friends don’t do that to each other.”
Clark added, “I was sitting there going like, ‘Really? This is the type of people we’re having in our lives?’ I just want good people in my life.”
