Will Jax Be Back?
After seven seasons of ups and downs, this Vanderpump Rules star is finally bowing out. Well, at least that’s how it appeared on the Season finale of the show. Given that Lisa Vanderpump is known to re-hired an employee that she’s fired before, it’s not like Jax Taylor is out for good, right?
Well, maybe not. As it turns out, the 38-year-old did quite the number on his former employer. Not only did he offend the Real Housewives of Beverly Hills star and her husband, Ken Todd, by telling his former boss to “f**k off,” but he may have also burned any chance he had with the cast.
Could this be it for Jax?
“Grow the F**k Up”
It’s easy to see that Jax Taylor has been having a difficult — if not a very strange — season on Vanderpump Rules. After telling boss Lisa Vanderpump and her husband, Ken Todd to “f**k off” in an explosive public outburst, the pair finally sat down to talk as Season 6 wrapped up.
“I really am sorry,” he admitted while on the verge of tears. “I’ve ruined everybody’s life. I have. I don’t know what to do anymore.”
Lisa, basically as done as any longtime audience member is with Jax’s antics, simply told her employee to “grow the f**k up.”
The End of an Era
In a power move that will shape all girl bosses to come, Lisa refused to fire Jax and told him off instead.
“I’m not going to give you that satisfaction, because I know what you’ll do with that,” she told him. “You’ll go over there and you’ll be like, ‘I’m fired. I’m the f**king victim again.’ … I’m asking you, why don’t you do the decent thing? Why don’t you hand me your f**king resignation and do what you should’ve done a long time ago?”
Jax was sure to do just that (because, really, what other choice did he have?) but with a hanging job offer still available in Tampa, Florida, the 38-year-old ended the season questioning his next big move.
Some Big Changes Coming Up?
During the season, the bartender also ended his relationship with longtime girlfriend and castmate Brittany Cartwright amid cheating allegations. Jax was obviously still struggling with the demise of the relationship amid his departure from SUR, as he seemed determined to stay in the apartment complex the pair had been living in together.
“Jax was like, ‘If I’m moving out, I’m probably going stay in the same building.’” Brittany said. “If Jax is going stay in the apartment building I might leave the apartment building.”
Of course, because this is reality TV, we know that now the couple is back together. But still, that doesn’t mean the Vanderpump Rules reunion show is going to be a smooth ride!
