Jax Taylor SLAMS Vanderpump Rules Producers: They’re Making Me Look Like a Jerk! | Wireler
For the primary six seasons of the present’s run, Jax Taylor was Vanderpump Rules‘ resident troublemaker.
He wasn’t at all times the present’s greatest villain — that title typically belonged to James Kennedy — however nobody stirred the pot fairly as successfully as Jax.
But that every one modified this season with the “Jax is a changed man” storyline.
Many viewers have been skeptical of Taylor’s transformation, and certainly, solely time will inform if it lasts.
But it appears plain that two vital occasions led Jax to reevaluate his priorities.
Last yr, Taylor’s father died after a lengthy battle with most cancers.
Shortly thereafter, Jax bought engaged to Brittany Cartwright, the long-suffering girlfriend to whom he had been untrue simply months earlier.
Despite his troubled previous, Taylor appeared dedicated to carving out a extra respectable future.
Which is why so many have been stunned to see the 39-year-old return to his douchey methods on Monday evening’s episode.
One tense scene noticed Taylor squaring off in opposition to Brittany’s father and brothers, all of whom have been conscious of his previous infidelities.
Instead of begging forgiveness, nonetheless, Jax bafflingly insisted that it is vital for him to place himself first within the relationship.
He later took to social media to assert that he had been misrepresented by poor modifying:
“For those of you who want to come at me for tonight’s dinner scene: First of all, yes — mentally, I have to put myself first, or I won’t be able to take care of my wife or my kids,” Taylor started (we assume he is referring to his future youngsters).
“That is what I meant by that,” he continued.
“I wouldn’t be making these moves forward and say something so selfish,” Jax added.
“I believe everyone needs to put themselves first, or how can I possibly be good for anyone?”
He went on to say that he “never once complained about editing” — earlier than happening to do precisely that.
“This scene was edited horribly,” he insisted.
“I even spoke to [Brittany’s] father after, and he was like, ‘This is not how it went,'” Taylor recalled.
“We are both on the same page — just so you know — and he agrees with me, and that’s all that matters. Wanted to clear that up. I feel I owe it to you guys (viewers). I don’t want to let anyone down ever again.”
Of course, Jax made a number of feedback that actually could not have been taken out of context, even by editors who have been looking for to destroy him for no matter cause.
For one, Taylor admitted that it took the dying of his father for him to “figure all this s-it out” — “this sh-t” being not dishonest on his fiancee.
“I was going through my own personal issues when I did what I did,” he informed Brittany’s father.
When he was later cautioned concerning the significance of open and amicable communication, Taylor mentioned:
“That’s a hard thing for me because I always have to have the last word.”
“Again, I love Brittany more than anything, but I gotta take care of this guy right here first,” he added.
“I’m always gonna be No. 1.”
We get Jax’s level about needing to look out for himself in order that he can look out for others.
But dude — perhaps you need not make that case to the household of your future spouse who you have been lately caught dishonest on.
